White Elegance

Welcome back.

I am now feeling a lot better now after some heavy duty hospital treatment (thank you for your kind words) and I have now got my new toy – a Fiskars Creativity Fuse System that embossess and die cuts together.  I am very happy with it as it is die cutting so much better than my little old cuttlebug.  Plus it also embosses in the one roll which saves me turning the dies over and re doing them.  I won’t retire the cuttelbug yet as it is still useful to have it for simple jobs.  I noticed that when I emboss now with the new machine that there is minimal distortion compared to what I was getting.

Today I have a couple of cards that I have made using my new dies and machine.   I love the effect of white on white cards using different textures and finishes.

First up is a wedding card made from CTMH White Daisy cardstock.  I have used a variety of products here from Heartfelt Creations Ariana Blooms to Spellbinders Dies and CTMH embossing folders and stamps.  It was amazing the difference it made when I put the embossing panel on the back of the card.  I embossed the die for the frame and then cut the frame out to add more dimension to the card.

Here is another card that I have made with the Timeless Rectangle die.  This time I have kept the card simple and used another beautiful die I have had for a while on the front.  I couldn’t decide where to put the sentiment on the front and so I put it in the middle of the card instead.   The photo does not really do the card justice unfortunately.

Welcome back

I am a day late for my post but better late than never.  I haven’t had much chance to do much crafting lately as my house is on the market and I haven’t been too well either.  So I will show a card that I made some time ago.  I am discovering all sorts of products on the market place and it has been enjoyable playing with some new ones that I have purchased.

Gift Hutt-1-187

For this card I have used a combination of Heartfelt Creations dies and stamps for a colourful card.  There is a lot of layering involved with the different dies and stamps.  I have cut two of the Raindrops on Roses die in White Daisy cardstock and then one oval using the inner oval with the pattern from the Elegant Ovals die also in White Daisy.  I then cut a plain oval out of the Pomegranate cardstock to place underneath the patterned oval.  I then stamped the Vining Fuchsia stamp on some White Daisy cardstock.  I coloured the flowers and leaves with copic markers.  I then partially cut the image out using the plain oval die and then fussy cut around the flowers to create a look of cascading flowers over the patterned oval.  I then stamped and die cut the Ariana blooms and coloured them in with copic markers.  These colours work perfectly with the Pomegranate cardstock.  I shaped the flowers and then finished off with the Gold Bling gems from CTMH.  I haven’t put a sentiment on as yet and may not do so.  It can then be used for a number of different occasions.

Spellbinders frames

Welcome back.

I apologise for being missing in action but I have had a very busy few weeks and just haven’t had much chance to do much crafting.  My house is on the market and I am not allowed to make a mess!!!  Never mind I am hopeful that I can get back into crafting soon and I have a new die cutting machine coming so I can’t wait to use that.  Watch this space….

I have managed to make some cards though before I had to pack my supplies away and here is one card that I have made using some flowers and leaves from my stash that I bought many years ago.  I have been playing around with some Spellbinders dies and embossing folders and tried to do double embossing as demonstrated here, but my poor overworked Cuttlebug did not like it.  So I ended up doing another frame to go under the frame.  My embossing ended up a little flat so I added these beautiful flowers to cover them.  The sentiment is from CTMH Framed.  I found the inner frame looked a little naked so I added some pearls from my stash.
