Smile...

Happy Sunday everyone,

Sue here today and I hope whatever you are doing you are having a lovely day!

Here is a card I made as part of a set for our lovely Tracy to showcase some goodies from Dies To Die For in Die Cutting Essentials magazine.
I used this die in quite a different way by cutting the Chrysanthemums out individually and using Distress Ink to create a blended ombre effect on them.

If you want to find out a bit more about how I made this card then please pay me a visit at 

Thank you for popping by.
Happy Crafting

Lighting the candles

Happy Friday everyone, it's Kat here!

Today I have a boys birthday card and what boy wouldn't love a dragon to fly by and light his birthday candles?!

I just got my hands on these stitched alphabet dies and they are absolutely brilliant for personalising cards; sorry if I'm tempting you but that's my job ;-P


If you would like more details on how I created this project, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a wonderful day!

Life is better when you are smiling

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)


A quickie from me today, again! I am busily working on things I can't share yet, so thought I would show this card I made for the Hochanda TV Show. I used a Taylored Expression Watercolor Panel from Store, which made for a super quick, easy and pretty card. Just what you want when you are against the clock. And yes, you can use Copics on them. Sorted!

Products Used...
Make it Colour Blending Card   
Taylored Expressions 3x4 Watercolor Panels - Inspire

Thanks so much for stopping by... Have a great day.

Panda with Flowers

Hello everyone. It's Annette here today sharing a little Panda in a Springtime themed Mother's Day card.  I've stamped him in pale grey ink to give a no-lines kind of feel, and then I've watercoloured him with lots of yellow and orange flowers.




Here's a close up of my little panda...

Stamping Bella Orchid

Hello everyone.  I was at the Dies to Die For pop up shop on Sunday in Bristol and have had a play with some of the goodies that found their way into my stash.

I've been drooling over this image, Orchid by Stamping Bella, for a while and when I saw that Tracy had her in stock I scooped her up.  Her dress was a little scary, but when I got started I was really pleased with her.  I also bought the scalloped edger die which I think is going to get a fair bit of use!




Here's a close up of Orchid with a bit of sparkle on her dress.

Wiz

Hello everyone, it's Annette here today and I'm sharing a more masculine style card featuring Wiz from Stamping Bella and my trusty Frantic Stamper stitched border dies. 

The sentiment comes with the stamp so this really is a simple layout.  

I tried to get a bit of glow from the magical ball onto the Wizard and his clothing which involved a fair amount of careful blending, but I am quite pleased with how it turned out and it was easier than I thought it was going to be.
