SATURDAY GIVE AWAY



Hi... thanks for popping by for our first 'give away' of 2017!


I started with a white 5"x7" card base and matted this with Antique Copper Foundation Card by Creative Expressions.  I then used the Petite Striplet - Jubilee Die Set by SW for CE at each side of a piece of white card measuring 13cm x 10.5 cm, and added double sided adhesive by Woodware to the back of these.  I sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes in Red Blaze.  These were then burnished into the design using a Rub-it Scrub-it.  I used both the outer and inner dies to cut a separate piece in white card, backed it with double sided adhesive and applied the gilding flakes as described above.  Foam tape was adhered to this piece to give it dimension then adhered to the centre of the main focal point.  Thin mats of white and antique copper card were added to the back of this and adhered to the base card.  I stamped Happy Birthday in 'Coffee' using an Archival Ink Pad by Ranger, I place one of the Stitched Flags Dies by SW for CE to the sentiment, then cut and embossed it.  I used an accent pen in gold to the edges of the sentiment, added mounting foam to the back and adhered this to the card base


Leave me a comment to win this card and I will draw the winner on Monday

JUST FOR YOU

Hi... thanks for popping by

This is one of my favourite colours, aqua, by Creative Expressions, in their foundation card.
I started with a 7"x7" white card base and added two thin mats and layers in aqua and white card. I then cut another piece of white card using the Double Pierced Squares Die Set by SW for CE.  Next I cut a smaller mat in aqua card and embossed it using the Nordic Tiles Embossing Folder by SW for CE and adhered this to the base card.
Using the Sydney Die Set from SW's Australian Collection I cut a white base with the outer cutting die then using the decorative die I cut this in the aqua card and adhered to the white base. I followed this by using the largest circular die, from the same die set, and cut out the centre.
Using a stamp set from my stash I stamped the sentiment in black and covered it with a double sided adhesive sheet, this was then cut using the smaller circle die from the same set.  Once I removed the adhesive backing I sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Diamond Snow then adhered it to the centre of the card.
I cut several flowers using both the closed (white card)  and open (aqua card)  Daisies Die Set by SW for CE and adhered the layers with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.  I placed a pearl on each flower and adhered the flowers to the card as shown.
A verse was stamped on white paper and placed inside the card.
