Hello Everyone,

Did you all get your Making Cards magazines.  If you did you would have this card and a step by step tutorial on how to make one of the Foamiran Flowers.  :)

The Beautiful papers by from Pion Design's "The Songbird's Secret", all links as usual at the bottom of the post.

I didn't want to cover up the beautiful bird image.  The memories sentiment was cut from Pion Design Mr Tom's 

Below is a close up of the flowers. The leaves were cut by hand and the texture createed using the Moulds, also linked below.

I added some Scrapiniec Meheni Laces.

Hope you like it :)

Back to Vintage

Hello everyone,

I have made a vintage card for my Sister's birthday tomorrow, she loves vintage and circular cards so this will be perfect for her.  She also likes green :)  The image was cut from Pion Design's Grandma's Attic Bouquet image sheet.  The papers used are also from Pion Design 6x6 With all my Love from the Where are the Roses Collection and Pendants 6x6 from Pion Design's The Songbird's Secret.  The Butterflies and text were cut from the Borders sheet from Where are the Roses collection.

I have used the new Lace Irene and added a Wycinanika Back to Vintage Chipboard border.

I made a couple of Foamiran flowers and added to a chrysanthemum from the Spring and Summer flower packs.  Finished with some 1.5mm pearl spring and diecut trailing leaves in Pion Design Green I.

Look at the fab shape of this card, isn't it elegant.  I used the NEW LDRS Grace Build a Card Die Set.  It's fabulous, I used the largesgt die for the base and the second one for the inner panel and then used the second largest as a stencil to make the third layer.  It comes with lots of other elements as shown below and I will be reaching for this set again and again.

Hope you like it.

Happy Birthday to my Mum & Challenge Time at Noor Design UK

Hello Everyone,

I have been playing with the new Pion Design My Dearest Sofia papers and they are just perfect for the new challenge at Noor Design UK, which is an easy one, yep.... Flowers.  I have used an image from the collection and handmade flower using Foamiran and Rosy Owl Dies, so in love with these and so easy to make.  Speaking of Foamiran Flowers, anyone going to Ally Pally next weekend?  Yours truly will be there demonstrating the Foamiran Flowers, pop by to say hi :)

So it was my Mum's birthday today and this is the card I made fo her.

I added Lace Juiette to the bottom.  Aren't the papers beautiful, actually even more so in real life :)

Here's a close up of the flowers and finished with a pink Vax Cord bow.  The text is from the Borders sheet.

The Butterflies are also cut from the Border sheet.  I tucked a Scrapiniec Monograce heart underneath the diecuts in Pion Design Pallet Pink I and White II cut using LDRS Fancy Rectangles and Little Things.

Hope you like it and have a great weekend :)
