Just for You

Sweetheart Buds today on a DL card. I used three sanded, embossed squares and attached the top and bottom ones with double sided tape, and the centre one with foam pads. Then I added two die cut flowers and a nesting message before attaching Candi to the corners of the squares.

Just for You

Peas in a pod again! This time I used a 148mm by 148mm blank and added three panels of the script paper. I also used two of the embossed squares which I sanded. One of these was cut in half and I stuck half a die cut flower to each piece. In the middle of the other square I attached one of the Peas in a Pod nesting sentiments.

Thanks so Much

Made with an Elegant On the Edge card that is embossed with Swiss dots.

I used the Sweetheart Buds colours this time. The embossed squares have been sanded and I cut two of them in half then overlapped them against the spine of the card.

More Birthday Wishes

and more Peas in a Pod! I just love this collection - the colours are amazing!

This time I used a Fanciful card blank. I layered together some die cut flowers and mounted them onto embossed squares which I had sanded.

Birthday Wishes

Peas in a Pod from Craftwork Cards again - I really like this collection and the colour scheme is gorgeous.

I used an 8 by 8 blank and added two coloured strips from the die cut flower sheets.

The flower is made from three of the die cuts layered together. You probably can't tell from the picture but the middle flower is quite dimensional - it is the same shape as the spotty flower but the petals are much longer. I folded the petals under and stuck them down at the back.

Finally I added an Elegant Sentiment layered on to a larger die cut of the same shape.

Thinking of You

Another card made using Peas in a Pod from the Sweet Pea collection by Craftwork Cards. This is similar to yesterday's card but this time I used a DL blank.

Birthday Wishes

I cut out three of the Sweetheart Buds embossed squares and sanded them. The outside two are attached with double sided tape and the centre one is attached with fom pads. The outside part of the sentiment is stuck down using a glue pen and the centre is stuck with foam pads. I also used foam pads to attach the die cut flowers. To finish the card I added three pieces of Sweet Pea Candi.

Sweet Pea - Happy Birthday

I made this using the new Sweet Pea - Peas in a  Pod collection from Craftwork Cards.  The colours in this collection are absolutely gorgeous.

I just added three panels of paper to a 6 by 6 blank and attached some die cut flowers using foam pads.  The out piece of the sentiment is attached using a glue pen and the centre with foam pads to give dimension.  I also used a few pieces of Candi to finish off with.

Baby Girl

A baby card made using Sweetheart Buds paper from the Sweet Pea collection by Craftwork Cards. The flower is from the same collection. The Candi matches the colours in the paper and the flower. I die cut the letters using my Mac 'n Cheese dies.

Mother's Day

Here is a gift bag that I made using a piece of 12" by 12" paper and my Hougie Board.  I cut two large Tattered Flowers and one small one from colour core card.  I scrunched these up and then sanded them which made the core colour show through, punched a hole in the centres and fastened all three together with a brad.

The top of the bag (back and front) is trimmed with a scored panel of the colour core card which was also sanded.  I then added dark brown Candi along the front strip and an Elegant Sentiment in the bottom corner.

To fasten the bag I used circles of velcro.

Best Wishes

This is one of the new card blanks from Craftwork Cards. Check out the new Candi that I used - it's gorgeous.

I punched a scallop circle from the corner of the blank and stuck it to the inside of the card directly behind the aperture in the front.

Diamond Wedding

Here is a Diamond Wedding card which I made this week.  The chipboard numbers were embossed using a Cuttlebug numbers embossing folder and then painted with silver acrylic paint.  I attached the zero to the card using double sided tape and the six using foam pads.

At the bottom of the card I added a Message Band with a sentiment in the centre and some crystals to the side.
