Sweetheart Birgitta

I made this card a little while ago for my lovely friend Julia. I have stamped CC Designs Sweetheart Birgitta and coloured with Copics (Tracy has lots of the new Ciao colours); cut her out and mounted to a circle cut using a Nestabilities Circle die with 3d foam. The base is layerers of MME Quite Contrary paper with ribbon wrapped around. The swirl is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey die which I have adorned with SU pearls (from the lovely Jules) and a Prima Dandie. The sentiment is from the MFT Die-Namics Polka Dot Greetings Stanp & Die Set. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

STAMPS: CC Designs, My Favourite Thimgs. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, My Minds Eye, Bazzill Basics. TOOLS: Magnolia Doo-Hickey Die, Nestabilities Die, Copic Markers. EMBELLISMENTS: Stampin' Up! pearls, ribbon by Dies to Die for, Prima Flowers.

Big Present

Now you may be surprised to know that I love Stampin' Up! products and own a fair amount but for some reason I hardly use them, nope I don't know why either! So a little while ago I put in an order with the lovely Jules and here is a card I have made with some of those products. I have used the very cute LOTV Big Present stamp and coloured with Copics before cutting out using a Nestabilities square die. I have then mounted this with Pear Pizzazz CS and added to base with 3d foam pads. The base is more Pear Pizzazz teamed with Bashful Blue and then a strip from the Celebrations designer paper series. The Hero Arts sentiment stamped then punched out using the Modern Label Extra Large punch also added with 3d foam. Designer buttons with Lined Thread tied around added to finish.

STAMPS: Lili Of The Valley, Hero Arts. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Anita's, Craftwork Cards, Stampin' Up!

Beautiful Day

There are loads of new products arriving at Dies to Die for on a daily basis. I got a lovely order through this morning and have made a card already (that is extremely quick for me!). I have used the lovely MME Stella & Rose Hattie collection layered with Bazzill Kraft CS and added to a white card blank. More of the Bazzill card has been run through my Cuttlebug using the MFT Die-namics Dainty Lace Border die and added on top with a piece of We R Memeory Keepers Floss. I have cut out a MFT Die-namics Butterfly first using 100% wool felt and then glitter vellum, the glitter one adorned with Bazzill Jewels. The gretting from the MFT Framed Greetings Die & Stamp set stamped on the layer.
