Lacy Frame . Easel Card.

Good afternoon friends and visitors, very warm sunny day after a cool start this morning, hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather, afraid to hot for me..

Had this idea to make an open lacy easel  card as soon as I saw this beautiful Rose frame die by Jeanine`s Art.. 


Hope you think it`s as pretty as me..

How I started below..



I have cut Two Lacy Rose frames, to adhere together for stability, 
Using  Creative Express "Noble Pinpoint Squares.. I needed an inside frame 4.7/8 x 5.3/4" by 1/2" wide..this is perfect to adhere to this tiny edge of the rose frame.I used one frame on the front and one on the back.


A4 card I cut to 5.3/4" along long edge.
Score in half..
Next using the same square die 4.7/8.. as I used for the centre frame..I die cut as shown..



Remove the square it has cut ..Find the centre on side frame and score for your easel.



I have adhered my lacy square with frame.. to the bottom half of the easel below the scored  fold only Arms & Bottom...
"Happy Birthday" has been cut away from Poppystamps "Happy Birthday Tag.

I cut twice on a strip of card using the "Rose Border" adhered one cut only to the front as shown and the plain card, left my other unglued to use as a stopper. 
Poppystamp "Heart Swoosh" this cuts the heart out, I filled with pva glue, filled this with..iridescence glass micro beads/white.. infilled with Sparkling Dust. 


Would make a lovely Wedding card, this style..think I be doing more! now I know how..

Just Saying Hello..


Good morning friends and visitors.. My day over on Poppystamps blog today..


my favourite flowers are Poppies! red or any colour, love the delicate petals on these flowers..I have tried to capture this on these petals..using Poppystamps "Blooming Poppy die"



Hope you do not think these Poppies  look messy!! lol.. to me that`s  how our Poppies  look in the UK..
I normally use a crepe paper. you have to be careful as this is not colour fast with water..
OK this is the product I have used..had in my stash for years..Good old Coffee Filters!!! bet your thinking I`ve gone mad!!!  here is how..







Leave the coffee filters as they are double, ink with a blending tool, I used distress "fired brick"  ink both side.























Spray with plenty of water and dry with a heat tool.. Next cut out just the petals from Poppystamps. Blooming Poppy die.
















This is how I add shape.. moulding mat and ball tool..I separated the two of each from the coffee filter..top are ones as they have been cut..bottom petals have been shaped, it is a strong paper even when wet..










 One set of petals on the left..right side flower made ..I dipped just the  centre of the petal in the glue.. adhered as shown..before you add the last bottom petal, glue the black stamen in.
I also added some glossy accents to the back, gave more stability to the flower.








Close up of Blooming Poppies on dark green stems.. Gental Leaf Collage for the background, shaded with distress ink Tumbled Glass, dot of green are from Poppystamps New "Studio Blotter" CL449 clear stamps, infilled with "Heart Screen" die cuts.
Just Saying from "Sentiment Of Hello" CL451 stamps with "Little Luxe Hello die cut in white card shadowed with green card.


Hope you like my take on Poppy flowers..

Butterfly and heart.


Hello friends and visitors.. made this card today, in this extreme heat!!! wish my craft room was the other side of  our house..from dinner till the sun goes down I have the sun blaring in, roller blinds don`t help much, ought to get more black out blinds like we have at other windows..well enough of me complaining..on to my card.



I wanted another go at this Concord & 9th.. Butterfly Card Dies. does make a fastener on a gate fold card front..  I just wanted the butterfly in coloured glitters.
I watched  Dave from Memory Box doing this technique http://davebrethauer.typepad.com/outsidethebox/2017/03/glitter-inlay-technique.html 

I have mixed Martha Stewart Glitters and Micro Beads in the similar colours.



The out line butterfly has no cutting edge, I hand cut with scissors after applying onto the plain sticky one..

  



Pre-Order Concord & 9th Dies Butterfly

Find It Trading Yvonne Creations Love Die Hearts


Butterfly and Rose Heart I have used..


I made a square 6" x 6" with Creative Expression.. Pinpoint Noble dies..Then used an old Little B. heart to cut the heart shape, as this Rose Heart cuts as shown.I doubled up to create depth, leaves coloured with pro marker.

Inside the heart is embossed card, using  Darice "Wire Fence. embossing folder.
Alexandra  Renke "I believe In You"  also glittered.  and Poppystamps Bow & String, This with the two hearts I have used  Dress My Craft.."Sparkling Dust" 





Hope like me you like this technique using assorted coloured glitter.

Cherished Pocket.


Good morning friends and visitors, we have a wonderful warm sunny day today, think most of the UK has this weather today.


Sharing a card I cut the main out a while ago! I was so busy never got around to finishing this card till yesterday..
I do remember I had a hard time cutting these  fancy side panels in a heavy weight card! I have used a light weight Oyster Pearl..
You need an A4 Cutting machine for this one piece die.


Tattered Lace  "Cherished Pocket" here  http://www.crafting.co.uk  
Had my die a long while cannot remember how much I paid! Good sale price now..






I have made it into a special card..Wedding/ Anniversary/ Special Birthday..

I have cut this sentiment using Tattered Lace Twilight Labels.

Beautiful corner and flowers are by Memory Box..
I have cut one corner and layered up with these matching blooms.
Cut extra flowers to place at the card top, finished with gems & pearl hearts.



 Have used these Misti Corners for the first time..Fantastic!!! when I use one or two magnets to hold light weight card, clear stamp and sticky Encore ink, I find my card sticks to the stamp and moves..
NOT with these brilliant corners!only used the one and kept stamping over sentiment too..you get two in the set plus more corners ..here   http://www.oysterstamps.co.uk

Inkyliciouse Special Day clear stamp.




Closure you get in the die set, I have added between the circles tiny magnets,  can be opened to lay flat against the flowers for posting .

Ornate Lace..


Good morning friends and visitors...welcome to new followers, thank you for joining my blog.


Sharing two cards I made yesterday using my new Crafters Companion "Ornate Lace" embossing folder.. One in white pearlescent card..other I have used same card with ink in the folder.



This embossing is so detailed shame to overload with decoration.. I have used One Poppystamps "Stitched Poinsettia Trio" flower with Pine Twig and one Tonic Miniture Moments "Celebrate"




I have inked the side of the folder with C/C writing on, using a brayer and Encore ink as shown.


Place your card in the folder..Run through your die cutting machine..
TIP.. I use Sizzix big shot pro machine These folder`s are very thick!! I kept my platform as for cutting..Not embossing ..used ONE clear plate on top of the folder, no pressure for my machine, with this set up..Check your machine!! do not force through..find your own sandwich.. (Hope This Helps)
Clean your folder with a baby wipe or soapy water..




I made a frame with my old Cherry Lynn.. "Mini Pearl Rectangle Mega Doily" 
for both cards.




This is my favourite one all white..  touch of green.. 
Finished cards 6"x 7.3/4" 




Thank you for stopping by and any comments you kindly leave..Pam x

Happy Birthday Tag Card.


Good morning friends and visitors..
Sharing my card from  Poppystamps blog today..http://poppystamps.typepad.com/  







Feminine Card using delicate colours for my friend.
I had an idea of the layout for this card! I have used it a few times, I just vary it.

I started by die cutting these new Poppystamps "Tender Tulips", top picture shows a bit of shaping to these petals one white and one peach colour, next using distress ink  Tattered Rose, Next using a finger dauber I inked along the edges, then adhered together as shown bottom photo.





I have made my card base 6.1/2" square using white and peach card.. I have cut the "Happy Birthday Tag in peach,  next using the same size from Memory Box..Open Studio.. "Stitched Main Street Tags" this I cut in white, shaded  with green ink.. I have adhered this together, then adhered to the card as shown with a bow. Next I have added a border using these "Pretty Stitched" boarder dies along one edge. this I placed as shown. 





Below I have shown how I work!! I cut most of what I am going to use in two colours!! what I do not use will get used some other time.. I used the peach Happy Birthday Tag,.. White Tulip flowers.. White Chiffon ribbon, not peach.. 



Close up of the layout for these flowers, I have used a distress marker on these Tulips and random dots on the tag.


Finished card with sequins and white chiffon bow.


Thank you for stopping by Pam x.
