Good morning ladies....

This is such a very quick and easy card to make and I'm sure you will have your own supplies should you wish to replicate it or tweak it to your liking.  And, if I may mention.... ideal for batch making!

Using a 6" square card base with pre-scalloped edges I die cut the front portion using one of the dies from Tonic's Craft Kit 11, it's just the right size for 6" cards

Next step was to adhere the paper to the card inside and also stamp a sentiment 

I die cut 3 flower heads using the cut off piece from the card and scored the centre of each petal

Ribbon was adhered to the back of the flowers, and had my flower wires not been downstairs I would have used those lol

Flowers positioned in place, ribbons secured and a little bow, made with the same ribbon, was adhered to the 'stems'

To complete I added Nuvo Crystal Drops 'Antique Rose' to the flower centres

and now for the card winner....

Morning ladies....

 I have used a few elements from Tonic Craft Kit 11 for this card, namely the die, sentiment, snowflakes and the gorgeous red paper that isn't showing too well on this picture

The red NUVO drops I had already

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and snowflakes using WOW 'Silver Bells' Embossing Powder

I used one of the curved dies from the pack to die cut the middle portion of the paper, heat embossed the sentiment (not Tonic) and the snowflakes

This gorgeous paper is actually the back as I had to adhere the front of it on the card inside to show through.  The front has a lovely sheen, you'll see this on another card no doubt!

This 'Netted Bow' stamp set is the freebie this week.  If you don't have the coordinating die set these 4 stamps are easy to cut by hand

Morning ladies....

I was working with stencils a little while ago and had some of  the 'zig zag' card left over so decided to use it and see what I could make.  Because of the design I deliberately cut different widths of the black card, so that it wouldn't be uniform, even though doing this is totally out of my 'comfort/a little OCD zone' lol

The colours used on the stencil I used again on white card stock then die cut the 'HI' plus 2 more die cuts on black card and glued them together but leaving a little black shadow

The 'good luck' was stamped straight onto the card

Good morning ladies....

I've had this blue and white card for quite sometime, unfortunately one only sheet of A4, as used on the above card.  Blue is my number one favourite colour, and how I wished I did have another sheet after I'd stamped and embossed the scroll work at the bottom of the card, you live and learn! I should have used a grey ink but it's now done and I can't do anything about it

I folded half of the card front back, scored it and added the pale blue pearl brad.  Stamped and embossed the design on the bottom of the card, then stamped a verse onto an oval die cut (out of my 'die cut shapes' box) and adhered it to the card inside

I also added one layer each of the smallest blue and pink flower, to the inside

I stamped a full A4 white cardstock using the 'Arianna Blooms' Flower & Die Set and die cut them.  I used finger daubers and  'Rose Bud' & 'Danube Blue' inks to colour each layer of flowers.  With one layer of the smallest die cut I shaped and moulded it into a bud, the other layers were shaped and adhered together, placing the bud onto the final layer

I used 'A Wink Of Stella' on each petal, then, squeezing a good size 'dollop' of wet glue into the bud centres, I added the stamens, one by one

Using the second largest die from the 'Arianna Lace' Die Set, I die cut 2 of these from white cardstock and glued the flowers onto them

These were then adhered to the card front

To complete I added NUVO Crystal Drops Gloss in 'Blue Babe' around the scroll on the front of the card

Good morning ladies....

This was going to be an A5 card but, because of the size of dies I wanted to use it ended up being 6.75" x 5.75" (I don't have the quarter or three quarter keys on this PC) 

I added 2 smaller white panels to the base card and die cut a petite striplet in the top panel.  I added a piece of double sided adhesive to the back of it then sprinkled 'Golden Sand' Polished Silk Glitter.  This glitter is fabulous, it feels gorgeous as well as not having any 'fall away'

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment then die cut several layers, in various sizes, of daisies plus 3 leaves

The daisies were shaped with a ball tool, layers glued together then positioned onto the card.  Three white leaves were also glued into place and the flowers were finished with polished gold gems

I took the photo of the card inside in portrait just so that it would stand better on its own.  The verse will be added later, depending on where or whom I send it to

Good morning ladies....

A pretty summery card for today

We have an oval aperture within an oval shaped card, bother die cut using the oval die set by Creative Expressions

The pale lemon card was embossed using an embossing folder by Crafter's Companion, 'Regency Swirls', one of my very favourites

To make the flowers I used the stamp and die set by Heartfelt Creations 'Arianna Blooms'  and the leaves were die cut using both 'Spring Foliage' and 'Blossom Leaves' by Creative Expressions

I also used a CE's stamp for the sentiment and to complete the card I added NUVO Crystal Drops Gloss, by Tonic, in 'Buttermilk' around the sentiment

The card will fit easily into an A5 envelope
