Happy Anniversary

Hi All,

During our holiday to Florida it will be my Sister and Brother in Law's 25th wedding anniversary and this is a little different for a reason.  We will be going up in a hot air balloon to see the beautiful sun rise in Florida and it was our present to my sister and brother-in-law so it seemed fitting to make them a card to remember the ocassion. 

I used the beautiful papers from Reprint.  All links at the bottom.

I tried to keep it relatively simple.  The centrepiece is a Fantasy Balloon painted with Gesso in white with a few flowers and butterflies from the Reprint paper.

Happy PURRthday

Hi Everyone,

I am sharing a card made for my Sister's birthday.  She prefers clean and simple so this is my take and I have to say I am in love with the Magical Slider Die Set by LDRS.  Be prepared to see more of these.

 I thought it was going to take ages but it really is so easy.

Pull the tab to reveal the coloured image.

The papers are from the Cotton Candy paper pad.

The Die set also includes lots of embellishment dies.  I used the flags :)

Hope you like it

More Than Words

Hello everyone, 

I have something a little different than my usual card.  Pion Design are sponsoring the More Than Words challenge blog this month so my project is following this month's theme.  The Word Inspiration is "JOURNEY" and the Creative Challenge is a "MAP".  I decided to combine them both into my canvas.

When thinking about the journey my mind wondered to my Dad.  He was a soldier in the World War II and this was the only time that he travelled ever in his entire life.  He visited Singapore, India and beyond.  Once he returned from the War he never set foot back on a plane.  It makes you think of what soldiers went through and indeed still do.  He didn't like to talk about it at all and in fact until my Father's funeral service I didn't even know he had been shot in the leg.  So my project for me was to include a map of the world in recognition of the only journey my dad took  in his lifetime.  I hope you like it.

I used Pion Design's The World Awaits collection of papers, if you are interested in these please email me.

I had great fun working on this canvas.  My picture is framed in a Prima frame.  All products listed at the bottom of the page.

Happy 21st

Hi everyone,

I'm sharing a card I made recently for my niece using LDRS Creative Lovely Lilac's 6x6 paper pad.  The image is called Sending Wishes stamped out using the hybrid ink Raven.  All links as usual are at the end of this post.

I used the LDRS Versatile Windows and Doors.  I can see many uses for this die set.  New home,  Christmas and Birthdays to name but a few.

I added lace behind the windows and panels in the door :)

I used the Lampost and Railings die set  You can see the lampost to the left in the above picture.

The railings can be see to the right with meadow spray and 20mm open roses and Scrapiniec branches.

I just love the little envelopes, so cute.

You will find all the products in the Crafteezee Shop.

Hi Everyone,

I have been playing with the LDRS Lovely Lilac's 6x6 paper pad, Victorian Border and I did colour up an LDRS image but the papers were so beautiful that I decided to make an elegant card.

I didn't glue the border down totally as I wanted it appear open and the result in real life is beautiful.

I added some Scrainiec Alamor, a little gesso and cheesecloth and lots of gorgeous flowers and finished with a polka dot lilac bow and button Alexis.

I handcut two of the butterflies from another sheet in the paper pad

Hope you like it

Hello Summer

Hello Crafters,

I found some time to play yesterday with the NEW Pion Design Seaside Stories collection of papers and I just love the colours and the vintage images in this collection.

I have also used some of the NEW Scrapman Dies and I have to say they cut beautifully and they come on a magnetic sheet, so that's a bonus :)

I cut the image using the Srapman Die Frame    and used the inner section of the largest die.  I then cut the frame from the Pion Palette Pink II.  The Text is from the Bordrers sheet.

We had some NEW seashell pearl trim come in recently and I cut a few off to use as pearl seashells for this card, perfect!

I used the Scrapman  Leave cut from Pion Palette   Blue, love this die.  I have also added some fisherman's net, cut out a few of the seashells from the border sheet and added an anchor.

I also diecut some Scrapman Die Leaves and I can't tell you how fabulous these not only cut but the detail without even embossing.

I used another Scrapman Die, Flower   and made some Foamiran Flowers using Foamiran 0.6 in white and LDRS Inkpads in Boy Blue and
 I added a star shaped wish bottle filled with sand from my lovely friend who lives near the sea :)

Hope you like it.
