Good Afternoon Alltrio of daisy's

This week I have used the Fusion Card Challenge for my inspiration and made this card with dangling daisies 🙂

I had to work backwards on this one – starting with the blue card in the centre – in order to get my apertures in the right place on each layer.  The daisies have been die cut (Spellbinders D-Lites range) and then stuck back to back over some cotton which is running through the layers of card and allows them to dangle.  Doesn’t show in the photo, but I’ve popped a Wink of Stella on the leaves, so they also sparkle when they move.

Bit fiddly, but made a change from doing a flat card 🙂

Unfortunately I am off to work again, so must dash, but I shall be back again soon

woo hooGood Afternoon All

This may be a bit of a swift post as I’m going to work in a little while, but wanted to try and get this done today if I can 🙂

Yesterday was my friend Kay’s birthday and this is the card that I made for her.  I’ve used the current Mojo Monday challenge layout as my guide and an A5 card as my base.

The papers are all from the First Edition Desert Blooms paper pack and are nice warm autumnal colours, which I’ve matted and layered onto brown card.  The owl is a Cottage Cutz die, which allows you to piece together the owl in different papers, so you can be as artistic as you like!

The branch comes with the owl die, but I thought it needed some leaves, so I’ve used an X-cut Botanical Embossing Punch for the ivy leaves.

The sentiment is from the Stampin Up  Just Saying Word Bubbles stamp and die set.

Gotta go, but will hopefully be back again soon

Sunflower Good Evening All

P1020687Sorry I’ve been absent for a while, just haven’t been in the mood 😦

Anyhow, had one on me today and came up with this 🙂

The sketch from the current Fusion Card Challenge made me think of a card I’d seen previously which was like two cards in one.  The little card on the right hand side overlaps the main card on the left to hold the card closed – if that makes sense?

The base card is A6 in size and I’ve used some Lily of the Valley papers to cover it.  The sunflower is a Spellbinder die and the sentiment on the inside is from Visible Image.

I’ve kept it very simple today 🙂 need to get back into the swing of things!
