Valentine's Day Exploding box


I have made this box using the instructions using the dimensions on the tutorial page of my blog.

I covered each panel with patterned paper and various die cuts. I printed sentiments and die cut them with a Presscut oval die and attached them to the smallest panels. I added a teddy into the centre of the box. I bought the teddy from my local artificial floral supplies. I completed my creation with satin ribbon and a bow to the lid.

Frozen Birthday Card


I have covered my white card with blue metallic card. I die cut the borders with a Sue Wilson die and attached them to the top and bottom of my card. I embellished the borders with ribbon. The image I have used is from a Christmas card. I mounted the image on white card before attaching it to my card blank. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with an oval die from a Presscut nesting set. I used the next size in the set to cut an oval from the blue metallic card to mount my sentiment before adding it to my card. I completed my card with snowflakes that I cut with a punch and gems.

11th birthday card for a gymnast


A personalised birthday card for a young lady that loves gymnastics.

I covered my 8x8in white card with pink card.
I found the image on the internet and printed it onto 160gsm white card. I die cut the image using a scalloped circle die from a Xcut nesting set. I used the next size in the nesting set to cut a purple scalloped circle to mount the image before adding to my card. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a small scalloped circle die from the nesting set and mounted it onto a purple scalloped circle. I attached this to the corner of the card and trimmed the edges in line with the card blank. I die cut the scalloped oval with a die from a Crafts Too nesting set and added the numbers that I cut with a Tonic Studios die. I cut the flowers with a punch and added flat backed pearls to centre of the flowers. I completed the card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

Frozen birthday card


I have covered my card with blue card from Hobbycraft.

I die cut the snowflake borders with a Sue Wilson die and attached them to my card and added ribbon to the borders.

I die cut the image with a Tonic die from a nesting set. I used the next size in the set to cut a white rectangle to attach my image to. I added a die cut sentiment and snowflakes that I cut with a punch.

Birthday Card


This is my January post for craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper

Sorry for the delay in posting this onto my blog. I haven't been feeling myself for a while so I have needed a bit of encouragement to do some crafting and blogging.

I have used a cream 8x8in card and covered half of it with patterned paper from my stash. I added some lace across my card. I printed a sentiment and die cut it with a banner die by Sue Wilson. I cut the larger banners to layer the sentiment. I added some floral embellishments along with some flourishes that I die cut with a Cheery Lynn die. I die cut the numbers with a Tonic die and added them to a die cut that I cut with a die from The Works before attaching it to my card.
