Hi, thank you for stopping by

Please keep checking in as I have lots of craft goodies for sale at unbelievable prices!

This is a 7"x7" ivory card base where I added a thin purple and lilac mat onto the base.  I then matted ivory, purple and lilac card, smaller than what is on the base, and added foam tape to the back to give dimension.

I then measured a piece of ivory card to create the focal point and to fit in diagonally across the card.Using the Triple Gemini Dies - Cepheus I cut  the die at each end of the card then inverted it to complete the design.

The sentiment is from the 'Delightful Sentiments Range' for CE, this was stamped in black Archival.  'Cape Daisy' flower dies by SW for CE was used to make the layers on both flowers using lilac card and purple card for the flower centres, finishing the look with 2 flat backed ivory pearls

Original card showcasing the Cepheus dies by Sue Wilson can be seen on her blog, I have made several changes to my card

Thank you for visiting

All for now...

I used an A4 pink card and folded it landscape.
On white card I used 'Best Wishes' Die by SW for CE to cut and emboss 3 times then adhered it onto white card.  The 'Happy Birthday' die and cupcake die is, again, by SW for CE.  I lightly coloured the cupcake base in pink and coloured the flame in yellow.  The 'Birthday Cake' die is by Savvy Dies.  I cut and embossed this, added double sided adhesive sheet to the back of the die cut then sprinkled Iced Snow by CE to it.  The flame on the candles are coloured in a ProMarker Red Pen.  The balloons were made with a punch by Woodware.  I applied glue to them and added Diamond Sprinkles.  On the top balloon I placed 2 tiny hearts.  Baker's Twine was used to 'hold' the balloons and the small ribbon is made with a die from my own stash

A U T U M N (2)

This is the second card I'm entering into the blogs listed below

On a piece of white card I placed a small circle to mask out the sun.  Using Distress Inks in:  'Faded Jeans', 'Fired Brick', 'Rusty Hinge' and 'Wild Honey' I coloured the card.  I removed the mask and drew 3 small birds in that area.  I stamped the butterflies using Archival Ink in 'Coffee' from IndigoBlu's Live, Laugh, Love Stamp Set

The sentiment is by Clarity Stamps,  was also stamped with the same ink pad

The card was then matted onto a brown, orange then white card

This is one of two cards that I'm entering on the blogs listed below

On an A5 white card stock I used a die to create the scalloped edge on the front of the card and ran 'Rusty Hinge' Distress Ink Pad across the scalloped area.
Next I stamped 4 leaves using IndigoBlu 'Live, Laugh, Love' stamp set.  I used Distress Inks in Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge to colour the leaves.  A light coating of 'Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax' by Creative Expressions was applied to each leaf.

I then cut a strip of white card, backed it with a piece of double sided adhesive sheet, removed the backing and applied 'Red Blaze Gilding Flakes,' by Creative Expressions, to this exposed adhesive sheet.  This was then buffed with a piece of 'RubIt ScrubIt' again by CE.  This was mounted on a matt of white card then black card and adhered to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment (from my stash) onto white card using Adirondack's Dye Pad in 'Pitch Black'.  Using two flag dies (CE) I cut the sentiment from the smaller die then a black flag using the middle size die.  I 'curved' the sentiment and adhered to the card front.

I used Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to secure the leaves on the edge of the card

I am entering this card to the following blog challenges:
