Snowflake Wishes - In Lay Die Technique

 Hello everyone.

I have a clean and simple card to share today but its also very pretty.  This is a recreation of a project I made last year.  You can find the card HERE.

I thought it would be lovely to create the same card but using the a colour combination from the Whimsy and Wonder suite and I also included some of the be dazzling paper from Sale A Bration. 

 You can earn this paper if you spend £45/60 euros but only until the end of this month.

I love the combination of mint macaron and blushing bride with the gold.  I have also used a base card of crumb cake.  It takes a little while to pop back in some of the pieces from the die cut snowflake but I used the pick up tool and it was so much easier.


I think it would be fun to see what other pretty colour combinations you make for this technique.

Black Berry Beauty Designer Series Paper Card

 Hello everyone.

I recently did a paper share with a few ladies from my local craft group.  I also took part and we all received a selection of the papers from the new mini catalogue.

So for todays project I decided to have a play with the small selection of papers that I received from the Blackberry Beauty suite.  

The papers are speciality papers and have the most gorgeous foiling on them.


I wanted the paper to be the star of my card as it was just so pretty to cut up so I used a fairly big piece to cover the front of the card.  I added a little detail by using a stitched rectangle die.

I then added a sentiment and fussy cut the bird from another one of the papers.  I then finished the card with a little extra bling.


I love that our papers are this pretty and you don't need to add much to create a stunning card.  This makes it extra light for posting.

Daring Card makers - Oh The Romance

 Hello everyone and I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

I completely forgot to schedule my post for yesterday so I am sharing it today.

Yesterday the Friday challenge from the Daring Cardmakers went live and Kathy our lovely host wanted you to create a card to celebrate love.  Think weddings, anniversaries or just to show someone you care.


As we recently had another family wedding I thought I would share the card that I had made for that.  When I receive the wedding invitation I always try to copy the theme.  The invite had some lovely shades of purple and was on kraft card so I used those.


I have used a lovely cake stamp which was a free stamp during a Sale A Bration from Stampin Up, which I think was last year.  I used some gold embossing powder and coloured in the flowers.  I made the card clean and simple but love how elegant it looks.

Thanks for stopping by today and please head over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Shaker Cocktail Tag

Hello everyone.

I have one of my favourite type of projects to make to share with you today. 
 I just love shaker cards but this time I have made a shaker tag using the cocktail from the Nothing's Better Than set.
I saw the idea of the tag over at Dawns Stamping Thoughts which you can find HERE.

How great would this look hung around the neck of cocktail bottle to give as a gift?

All my shakers start out the same way.  I cut several frames (about 6) and glue them on top of each other to create some depth.  I then used a stampin write marker just so I only stamped the lemon/lime on the cocktail glass as I wanted this to be background.  


I then stamped and die cut the whole of the cocktail glass and filled the shaker with lots of lovely sequins.  I then added some window sheet/acetate, I glued the final frame over the top and added the die cut words.
