Thelwell Frame card

Another project for Crafter's Companion Inspirers was to use the Thelwell CD.


I made this frame card adding the printable embellishments too.

I'm not usually a CD crafter, preferring die cutting and colouring etc., but this one is quite versatile with lots of fun images and printable elements. 

Thanks for looking

Dreamy Destinations - Crafter's Companion Inspirers.

This is a project I made for the Inspirers, Crafter's Companion, using the Destinations CD


I used the Roccoco die to create a patterned edge either side of my card.
1.    



Then reinforced the side panels with extra card.


Next I cut strips from the patterned papers.
8.

And added them to the panels.



These were matted onto Core'dinations card stock.

11.   Cut

The toppers were also matted then added to the centre panel with accents either side.



The design folds flat to post.




The CD has lots of fabulous designs.

Baby Shay

I was recently asked to make a baby card for a little boy and immediately thought of Sara's Signature range - Little Angel.


It's an 8x8" card featuring the fabulous Giraffe and Elephant dies.

Hope they liked it

Still loving JOFY stamps

These are a couple of cards I made a while back but have not shared as yet.
Jo designs the most amazing stamps and I just love working with them, these are from one of her latest releases for PaperArtsy.

Origami Day!

Today is Origami day so I made a vase of flowers for The Inspirers!


The papers are from Sara's Birthday Party collection.

The base is an old coffee tin which I have covered with paper, plus a ribbon & bow (from Contemporary Christmas)

I recently made the Kusudama flowers for the Birthday Party launch so made a few more of these.


I then googled origami flowers and found a you tube tutorial by Jo Nakashima for Lillies.
I know a real one has more than 4 petals but.....
These were made in 2 sizes. 


I also found a tutorial for an orchid so popped one of these in too.

Below you can see inside the Lily where I used Sheena's Perfect Partners for the stamen and also the leaves, plus the Anemone leaves.


They have all been wired and pushed into some oasis for stability and I added some green netting around the top to hide the base.

Thanks for taking a look
