Lizzy is on today at 12 noon with more of the Tattered Lace POW Lattice and Lace.
Above are a couple more cards from the show.
The first was made using the Diamond Trellis Flourish, left in the card. The flower was made using just the head of the Lacy daffodil , with the Meadow leaves behind.
The second is the Diamond Trellis Frame with ribbon threaded though the lattice. The flowers are from Mini Blooms again with Meadow leaves. I can see I'll be using the leaves quite often in the future, so useful.
Right, I'm off to work now, enjoy the Bank Holiday everyone.
Oops sorry, missed a day, had an early trip to Peterborough to deliver samples, so that put my schedule out plus my husband is on holiday., need I say more.........
Well at least he is working on my new craft room, roll on the 9th September, when my units arrive.
This weekend I will be working on samples for a Tattered Lace magazine and next weeks work has just arrived, busy, busy, busy.
Here are a few samples from the POW, loved the lattice die, great for backgrounds as well as a main feature.
Lattice with the lacy Daffodil.
Lattice again with Blossoming Archway and the Couple.
Afternoon all, here I am watching Mr Maker with my Grandaughter , well at least it's crafting !
We have been to see some birds, fish and snakes at local koi shop in Henlow, Beds. Mia loved the parrots, she has always loved birds.
Card made using some of Sheena's stamps and Aquatints with Kraft card.
First of all I would like to say thanks for all the birthday wishes, I had a lovely time with my Husband and oldest Grandaughter in Skegness. It was very windy but still it was sunny and warm.
Today's cards are something for the men in our lives.
Off to Skegness today, taking my Grandaughter Mia for the first time.
We've been making the journey as a birthday treat for a few years now, usually just my husband and I, but this year will be different.
Right, I've got to get ready so here is today's post.
Going to be a bit warm today, so they say. May need my fan on today in my shed. Lots of samples to make as I'm not here tomorrow, off the the coast.
As the title says a little bit of fantasy with today's cards
This twisted easel uses distress inks for the background, the Cherry Tree die with leaves removed, Unicorn, and Ornate leaves. For the base I used the Geometric Embossing a Folder.
A Centre Stepper , with Unicorn, Essential Circles. Mini Blooms, and Ornate leaves.
A very simple but very effective card, love to do black and white cards, classic and stunning.
Better get to work, enjoy your day, crafting hopefully.
Early start today, a lot to do.
Postman arrived at 7.15am, good job I set my alarm.
Cards planned on paper, now to do the real thing once I've printed the papers off.
Below are a few more cards from the All Wrapped Up paper crafting kit. After asking the powers that be, I found out the kit will be available on the website Crafting.co by the end of the month. So keep an eye out.
I'd just like to say thank you for all the lovely comments that have been posted. I'm enjoying blogging
again after a bit of a break, because if that I have a store of cards to show you.
Work has arrived, so I shall be busy for the next few weeks, but I'm having a day out on Sunday. more about on Saturday.
Today's cards are more from the All Wrapped Up show which was on Create and Craft USA this week. The kit had already been on, this side of the water in July, Sarah was on the show.
All that I added to the kit was some plain cardstock, ribbon, glitter and gems. The cardstock came from Limetree Craft, the brown, red and white. I really need to get some more as it matched so well.
Today I will be doing sketches for the cards I will be making tomorrow, I find this a lot quicker, ok there may be a few changes along the way but it stops the crafting block.
Some of you may have seen these if you are one of my Facebook friends, so for my blogger only friends here are some cards made with Sheena Douglass' Perfect Partners. A set of stamps and dies that match, saving you all that fussy cutting.
You can alter how they stand or hold their arms just by snipping into their joints ( a bit painful lol ) and then shaping them.
They are not necessarily for Christmas as you will see in tomorrow's post.
Watching Lizzy on C&C at the moment , then off to make some more cards to be seen on Monday.
Two more cards from the POD, the first using the Scene Stepper with the cute Penguin, the second is the Owl and Presents and the Chrisma Ivy. So happy I now have the Essentials, oval, circle, square etc. they make it so much easier to mat and layer.
Looking forward to the weekend, going to order some units for my new craft room, hopefully that means I should be in before Christmas !!!
This first card was made using the Scene Stepper die, which is on Ideal World and Create and Craft today. With the die there is a Click, Print & Go CD on which are scenes to print off to use as backgrounds.
Love the dies that give you shaped cards, easy to make and decorate but very effective.
This one is using the owl and parcels die which has been cut apart but also cut in different coloured card.
Collecting my Grandaughter Mia very soon, so better get my skates on.
