Life is better with friends

Hello everyone,

I am trying to blog every week, honest lol. I hope you are all well, and enjoying the brighter days we are having at the moment.

We are getting ready for our next shows on Create and Craft which are Friday the 28th, we are live at 1pm with the lovely Dave Bradford, then again at 6pm with Lee Clarke, we haven't worked with Lee before so are looking forward to meeting him.

Today I have a card to show you which was on our last show last week, using the Letters / Alphabet stamp set and flowers which I made from the Dress stamp set, both available from Create and craft.

I started with a 5x5 scallop  card blank, then matt and layered black card , papers from the Pretty projects cd rom available here, then lay some fabulous lace from my stash across the card, I then used a Tattered lace little scallop border, I love these dies they are so delicate. Next I stamped my  message for the topper using the Alphabet Stamp Set this set is so versatile as you can stamp whatever words you like whether it be a personal message a quote or anything. I then matted it onto some black card and cut another tattered lace border to fix across the top to edge it a little. I then stamped and embossed the flowers from the Dress stamp set and layered them up to make a little display in the corner, then added some swirl die cuts again from tattered lace , then dded a few gems to the middle of the flowers and top left hand corner. The card is now finished , I hope you like it.

Thank you so much for looking.

Butterfly Dress

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all ok and enjoying this nice sunny weather, it makes us all feel alot better when we see a bit of sun.

Today I am showing you a card I recently made for a sample on our shows on Create and Craft, if you managed to see our show on Tuesday of this week you will have seen it on there.

Here is what I have used :

Black card
Dreamees Dress stamp set
Dreamees cd rom Pretty Projects
Black embossing powder
Versa mark ink pad
Collall glue
Spider web
Black and white pearls

I have used papers from the Pretty Projects cd available here , I  used black card and spider web also lace and ribbon from my stash.

I used a square card blank in black, I then matt and layered the papers and black card to the sizes I needed, arranged them on the base card. I then embossed the dress stamp, tiny butterflies and sentiment all from the same stamp set available only from Create and Craft at the moment  here . I put the spider web between the layers to give a bit of interest. I added lace and a bow before adding the topper.
I used the dress as the topper of the card and arranged the tiny butterflies down the side of the dress flapping the wings a little.
I then just cut some circles of the patterned paper and black card and made the swirl roses, also added a little pearl into each one, added a few black pearls for interest on the right hand side of the topper. I then finished the card off with a matt and layer sentiment flag.

Thank you so much for looking .

Have a lovely weekend.

Dreamees Heart Tree meets tattered lace dies.

Hello Crafters ,
I hope you are all well, today has been a really lovely day lets hope spring is on its way.
Today I have a card to show you from a stamp set I haven't used for a few weeks it is called The Heart Tree and is available here this stamp set was one of the first to go on Create and Craft on the Dreamees debut show back in November.
I have also used papers from the Pretty Projects cd rom available here , a Tattered Lace die called Victorian Square and it is so beautiful, it actually splits up so you can use different elements of it too, then I have added some string, pearls and lace from my stash.
First of all I cut my card to make  a card blank 14.5 cm square in white.Then I choose the pale pink and brown paper collections on the Pretty Pastels cd, to start the layers which I adhered to the card using collall glue. I then cut the Tattered Lace die out of the brown paper I had already printed, these dies release so well, I didn't have to even tap it or anything the pieces just fell out perfectly with just one push through of my grand calibur. I stamped my tree image onto pink paper using a versa mark ink pad,  I heat embossed it in gold. I  split the tattered lace die-cut up into the pieces I wanted to use, the outer edge being a frame for my stamped image, in which I glued to the stamped image paper then trimmed around the die cut to make it level. I added the layers of the card and some lace from my stash across the bottom half of the card, I then chose the middle part of the die as like a square doily, glued that to the top left of the card, then added my topper using sticky pads so leaving it protruding out a little to give dimension. I then went back to the little die -cuts I had left and thought the corners were perfect to pop  on each of the other three corners to add a little detail. I  stamped my sentiment from the heart tree stamp set, added it to the bottom left corner,stamped  3 large and 3 small flowers from the same stamp set , I used a quickie glue pen to add the glue to the flowers then added some glitter to make them sparkle. To finish off I added a string bow and pearls. Thank you for looking at this post I do appreciate it, and would love it if you would like to leave a comment too.
