Keep Calm .....

Something different here - I'm really into Union Flags at the moment!  I started off with a 148mm square blank and trimmed it down to fit the paper.  The sentiment was layered onto blue pearlescent card and attached with foam pads.  I then added foiled Candi to the corners.

Sending Lots of Love

This was made with a pearlescent blue card blank.  I die cut three daisies using embossed squares from the Sweet Pea collection and over stamped them using black ink and a French script stamp.

As the front of the card is relatively simple, I added a strip of patterned paper and a sentiment to the inside.

Less is More

I cut a lilac panel from one of the Sweetheart Buds papers and attached to an 8 by 8 white card blank.  The hearts were cut using a Sizzix Bigz die and Sweetheart Buds embossed squares and were attached with foam pads (1mm ones for the outside ones and 2mm ones for the centre one to give varied dimension). 

The In Circle sentiment is layered onto a scalloped circle punched from a lilac Sweetheart Buds embossed square.

Spring Fling

I used a Spring Fling card blank for this - these are coloured, patterned c6 blanks from Craftwork Cards.

The flower was made by scoring down the centres of each petal on two Retro Daisies, folding each petal up and layering one daisy on top of the other.  I tied white grosgrain ribbon round the spine of the card, added self-adhesive pearls to the centres of some of the daisies on the card and finished off with an In Circle sentiment layered onto a punched scalloped circle.

More Birthday Wishes

Made using a DL card blank, this card was quick and easy to make.  I layered two die cut flowers and curled up the petals of the top one.

Warren Makes a Comeback

The lovely Warren is here again. Today he is fishing in his little boat!

I've used a scalloped circle easel card, a pre-coloured image of the little man, some My Mind's Eye Sunny Side papers and Candi.

Birthday Wishes

This was made with Peas in a Pod. It doesn't show in the image, but the spine of the card is across the top.

The hearts were cut using the embossed squares and a Sissix Bigz Die.

Remembering ...

a special friend on her birthday.

I used the Spring Fling template to make the bowl from colour core card which I then embossed and sanded.  Some of the daisies are glued flat and the others are attached with foam pads.  The Candi is part of the Foiled Candi Store from Craftwork Cards.

Happy Birthday

Sweet Pea again and this time I used a loopy daisy but kept the petals flat rather than looping them under.  The big daisy is attached with foam pads and the smaller one is just stuck down in the centre - although you can't see it very well I curled the petals up.

The sentiment is a dark brown rub on.

Happy Birthday Tim

I've made this for my friend, Tim, whose birthday is today - bet you can't guess how old he is!! 

I am somewhat addicted to these die cut daisies and the frames and I kept the card simple - less is more!

Anyway Happy Birthday Tim, you old git, hope you have a lovely day xxx

Wedding Wishes

I put this card into a box frame which I had painted white.  It's pretty self explanatory really and quite simple.  The initials were cut using my Mac 'n' Cheese dies.

When I cut the strip for the pinwheel flower, I included a narrow border of lilac which looks good around the edge of the flower.

It has winged its way to Warwick and went down really well with the recipients.

Spring Fling

Something a little different today - this card is made using a Spring Fling blank and retro daisies.  The half daisies are attached flat and the full daisies are attached with foam pads.  The centres are punched from the strips which come with the Peas in a Pod die cut flowers as is the small panel with the rub on sentiment.
