Groovi Parchment

Hi all

This weeks posts is my first attempt at parchment craft using  the Clarity Groovi system

I teamed the parchment with Sue Wilson's Noble range of dies and the flowers are from SW Camellia sets
I must admit I did make a mistake on a couple of pieces of parchment.  As you work on the reverse, and everything is backwards I did emboss a q instead of a p so instead of  binning it (i'm too tight through anything away!!) I  ran it through my Grand Calibur with CE star swirls embossing folder and it became my background. I was rather please with the result

I  used the Groovi  butterfly wreath which shows  my first ever attempt at this craft. I then decided to have a play with the white embossing and colouring. It's not good enough to create anything with. But I will definitely keep it to refer to.

Thanks for popping by, it would be wonderful if you had time to leave a comment.

Aqua flowers

Hello everyone

 I made this card using a selection  of dies from Sue Wilson's Noble collection.
I do like the aqua card its so pretty.
I created the largest flower using the cinch and go die from Spellbinders. The smaller ones I die cut Sue Wilson's complete Camellia. I sugared them using CE Glacier Ice.

Thanks for stopping by I hoped you like the card.

Green butterfly

Hi all
A quick post today as I am feeling under the weather, I hope it doesn't turn into anything worse.

I had a great day at Ally Pally yesterday meeting the creative expressions team they are great people and the samples were wonderful.  I also bought the Groovi starter kit  from Clarity - I just hope I will be able to do it!!!

On to today's card green for my Mum as it was her favourite colour, who sadly passed away 13 years ago.
 For the background I've inked through the floral mask with a distress ink  then embossed with the CE star swirls classic adorned noble die in green and backed it with white, which I glittered with ice snow.
The happy birthday was from a mask and I used Glitzcraft silver embossing paste through it and cut it out with a Justrite die and inked through with distress ink.
For the finishing touches I used a Spellbinders butterfly which I gilded too and some CE ribbon finished off with my own hand made dazzler.

Have a great week and thanks for visiting.

Pink Mini

Hi all

Here is todays offering
This card was first started with the background. I coloured a piece of white card with Spun Sugar Distress ink and then placed a mask (I cannot remember the name) but it is from Ali Reeves That Special Touch of ..
and inked through the mask with a slightly darker pink - again I cannot remember which ones. I was on a roll and created a number of backgrounds at the same time (lol)
 I then stamped the mini from the Stamps Away Pilkington Transport set.
I die cut the white card with the Majestic Labels 25 from Spellbinders  to create a frame for the mini.
I then matted and layered it up as shown,
I really like the way it turned out.
