Valentines day card

img_0716-mediumThe collectables pack from the Prima Rossibelle collection had some wonderful bits and pieces in it, and the silver plaque and tag were the base for this card. The flowers were also Prima and I added some gold thread and a flat backed pearl. The papers were some random pieces that were in my stash and I used a bit of the silver textured one to die cut a heart. Today is a day off, so i have been busy in the kitchen experimenting with a chicken casserole – no recipe so hope it turns out alright – smells ok as its simmerimg, so hopefully I have succeeded! Now I am off to the craft room to make a start on 6 orders, and looking forward to relaxing! til tomorrow…

Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments number 2..

IMG_7870 (Medium)Here is the second card I have made using Graphic 45 sweet sentiments.( this is the last for now until we photo the Easter cards I made). The bottom layer of this one is actually My Minds Eye paper but it seemed to match so well and it was an odd piece of paper that I had so I used it!. All my layers were inked with Ranger distress ink – Tea Dye, and I added a charm tied with linen thread to the top left hand corner.I have been busy in the craft room this afternoon making up some orders, but I am heading back in there now to play around with some ideas I have.. til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Sweet sentiments number 1

IMG_5855 (Medium)I bought a 12 x 12 pad of Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments paper, and there are lots of images on this paper for valentines day cards and easter cards. This week I have been making some Easter cards , but previously I made a couple of valentines Day cards – this is the first one.Nothing on this card except for the papers – layered and fussy cut. Some fancy photography by Nathan managed to put an image of the inside of the card on the right hand side of the card front.the layer of paper used on the inside is actually My Minds Eye now that I look closely!That crossover of paper companys very rarely happens in my world! I taught a lovely class of ladies this morning, and I am looking forward to a long weekend of crafting. Til tomorrow….

IMG_1174 (Medium)For these two cards I have done a fair bit of layering, and added ric rac,buttons, and bakers twine. The heart images are some I found in my craft stash, I have had them for years, and they came on a kraft sheet with quite a lot of home spunĀ  images. the patterned paper is October afternoon farm Girl. Super quick post tonight as the family are waiting for me to play a board game1 Til tomorrow….
