Personalised Wedding Card



This design has been very popular. On this occasion I made it in lilac and white to match the colour scheme of the wedding

I have made an 8x8in white easel card. I have matt and layered the top and the bottom with lilac and white card. I have used the Sue Wilson Eternal Ring die to cut 3 panels for the top of my card. I attached these panels to white card and then attached them to my card. I used a Die'sire quilling flower die to make the flowers. I attached these to my card using hot glue. The other elements I added to the flowers are cut with the die that comes with the quilling die. I die cut the oval with a Presscut die from a nesting set. I added the sentiment that I cut with a Tonic dies. I die cut the personalised sentiment with a Tonic die from a nesting set. The date is in the bottom corner that has been cut with a small Presscut oval die. I completed the card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

Concertina Camera







I have used the Tonic Studios Concertina dies to make this camera.

I have made 14 concertina pockets. I then made a box to house these pockets. I then made two smaller boxes to make the lens and then cut numerous circles and then wrapped a narrow strip of card around them before attaching it to the camera. I made the flowers using die cuts cut with a Cheery Lynn die. I added the clasps using brads and then embellished the camera with lace and flat backed pearls. I added the inserts into the pockets and used a strip of card to make a handle.

There is a great video on You Tube to help you make one of these.

Bauble Christmas


This is my project for the challenge at craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper 

Every year I say I am going to start my Christmas cards earlier. This year I was determined to start in September............so here is the first one!

I have matt and layered the top and bottom of my 8x8in easel card with patterned paper and plain red card. I die cut the baubles using a Spellbinders nesting set.

I embossed the baubles with a Creative Expressions embossing folder. I die cut the poinsettia with a Tattered Lace set. I attached satin ribbon down my card where the two papers meet. I added a panel across the base of the card using foam pads so this would act as the stopper for the top. I added die cut ovals to the base that I cut with dies from a Presscut nesting set, I will add a personalised sentiment to the ovals. I attached narrow gold ribbon from the baubles to the top of my card and then completed my card with flat backed pearls.
