Heraldic Square

Good Morning Bloggers

I hope you are all keeping well.

Today's offering is using one of my favourite dies of the moment from Sue Wilson - the Heraldic Square die.
I just love the versatility of this die
I have stamped the Regal Blossom outer frame that matches the die in silver embossing powder and cut it out with Sue's New York collection of dies.
I coloured it in using a selection of the Sakura stardust pens, to give a hint of sparkle.

I used only the inner die with the outer cutting edge from this die set and popped a purple flower from my stash into the centre.

Many thanks for popping by.

Two fer one

Morning Bloggers

What a  beautiful cold crisp winter morning.
Only a few more weeks until Christmas so I thought I would show you two more Christmas cards.
The are very similar just different colours

 I inked through a holly mask and added Sue Wilson New York collection dies behind the main focal element the stamp is from my stash (it could be DoCrafts) The ribbon is from my stash and I finished the cards by adding CS twinkles ( I think it was the aruora ) around the edge of the card.

Thanks for popping by.

Winter Wishes

Morning Bloggers

Thank you for popping by I have a Christmas card  for today's post.

I have used  CE Aqua and white cardstock.
I used put some CS Polar White sparkle texture paste on my craft mat and mixed a little of peacock feathers ink, to give it just a hint of blue/aqua.
Then I spread this over a snowflake mask onto a piece of acetate.
The aqua frame was then popped over the acetate and then foam mounted  over a piece of white card to give a floating look to it. I  pierced all the way around with a piercing ruler, which was then matted on to another piece of white card. I hope you can see the snowflakes !!
This was then matted on to another piece of aqua card and finally on to my white card 7x7
 I used the Heartfelt Creations poinsettia stamp and embossed in white on to white velum which I then cut out with the matching die and finished off with an aqua pearl in the centre of each flower..

 The sentiment is from Tattered Lace which I cut twice once in the aqua and then in the white and dropped shadowed it.
Thank you for popping by I hope you like it.,

Beautiful Birthday

Morning Bloggers.

Here is my offering for today.

 I started by inking my polka dot mask with perfect medium which I layed on a piece of white card and ran it through my embossing machine.
I then peeled the mask off the card a sprinkled with pink mica powder on top of the perfect medium which I heat embossed.
I then matted this onto a piece of pink card.
I made a white frame and stamped randomly on it with some butterfly stamps from Kanban in pink and the leaves are from Justrite stamps. I then matted this onto the mica embossed background.
I then cut 4 of the Eltham corners from tattered lace out of pearlised white card and placed them in each corner.

 I stamped the sentiment from Justrite  Enjoy the Day set and cut it out with the matching Vintage labels 4 die. This I mounted on to a piece of pink card which was stamped and  embossed in white from the same stamp set.
I then added butterflies from Spellbinders and added pearls to the body.
The flowers are from Heartfelt Creations sun kissed fleur stamp and die set. I stamp them in pink on white card which I heat embossed and finished with CS Iced Candy twinkles  which I used for the dots all around the card.

Thank you for popping by.

Christmas Bauble

Morning all

Just a quick post today as I need to catch up on the house work (boo-hoo).
A simple Christmas card in white and blue.

 I used the CS Polar White texture paste through a polka dot mask  - I hope you can see the sparkle from the texture paste in the close up pics.
I then used the Spellbinders 2013 Heirloom Ornament die and cut the largest one in blue card and the next size down from a spare piece of acetate that I had used the caught in crystal technique on.

The stamp is one from Do Crafts which I then embossed with some glittery embossing powder.
I hung the ornament with some silver sparkle twine from my craft stash

Have a great week xx
