A Birthday Recipe

Hi everyone,  today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I'm sharing some Birthday inspiration with you in a vintage style.

I have added some pearls and cheesecloth to my stars and Sister word with a drop shadow effect.

My sentiment was stamped and a little Stickles added to the edges mounting onto my die cut layers with foam strips and another touch of cheesecloth.

My flowers were cut out in white cardstock inking the centres with a soft pink shade and  moulding on my embossing mat to shape the petals and finishing with a pearl centre.

Hi everyone, thanks so much for your visit today to see my DT post for Craft Consortium using the exquisite paper pad Bloom Beautiful.

I tattered the edges of my card adding some stitching for extra detail layering on my die cuts and stamped image which I triple embossed with clear powder.

Do check out Craft Consortium to see their vast range of stunning embellishments, paper pads and Decoupage papers on Facebook for inspiration and regular giveaways, you will also find them on Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram.

Sorry I am still struggling to visit your blogs at present but I am still not well, but I am trying to keep up via Instagram and Facebook just now until I feel better. Thank goodness my darling husband sets up all my blog posts for me and takes my photographs.

2017 Happy New Year

Hi to all my crafty friends and a Happy New Year to you, I hope it's a wonderful year for us all.
Today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing my inspiration with the fun 2017 Shaker Die and have added the sentiment that comes with it. This die would also look amazing recording any special memory for this year, a special birthday, the birth of a baby and a graduation to name a few.

I added the Happy New Year confetti into my shaker along with a mix of micro beads and added a shadow layer to 2017 to make it pop.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you feel inspired to making a shaker card, Cheery Lynn have a brilliant selection of these dies you can check out HERE.

Until next time,

Crafty Hugs,

Wishing you a Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas to all my friends in blogland. Today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing a Vintage styled Festive card using one of their beautiful Cardmaker Dies. I do love the intricate lace look to these dies and how they make a quick and very effective background to a card.

Once I cut mine out I tattered the edges for a shabby feel and pressed the edges into my embossing ink pad and heat embossed some Red Tinsel powder. Layering onto my other cardstock layers and adding some Glass Glitter to the edges for sparkle.

My Snowflake Doily was also heat embossed with Red Tinsel and cut in half and layered behind my Sentiment tag which had also been tattered at the edges, mounting on Noel.

My Poinsettia was cut in cream cardstock inking at the edges, adding micro beads to the centre finishing with a little Liquid Snow and Glass Glitter, mounting onto my glittered Holly Leaves.
