Mum did have some influence!

I said "hey Mum do you have any cards featuring these stamps?"
She said "yes, a few, here's six using Scripty Sayings!"


Spellbinders dies also used and these are listed with each card
and linked to the website.
 
Romantic Vines.

 
Floral Heart Accent


Pretty Petals C


Fancy Lattice

 


Pawing Around (Cat)

 
 If Lawn Fawn is popular (not just with Mum!) then I will be looking
to stock a great deal more of their products.

Back soon.

Autumnal Inspiration from Sam

Hello everyone

Today Angel Sam is sharing with us another wonderful card using
Leaves A Fallin'

Leaves A Fallin' is a decorative card front die so there's an outer border
rectangle and an inset die with Autumnal leaves.


Sam has chosen to snip out the leaves which makes this die so versatile.


Her step by step guide:

Use a piece of watercolour card and colour with Distress Inks - 
Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Fossilized Amber. 
Spritz with water and wipe through.
Use this card to die cut with Leaves A Fallin' and emboss.
Highlight with gold gilding wax.
Add Glossy Accents to all the leaves and wait until dry.
Snip out the leaves and  use them to decorate the splattered card background.
Add sentiment.


Leaves A Fallin' is available on the website here.

Thank you Sam and please check out Sam's blog Craft Room Delights.


Back with more Angel inspiration soon.

Labels and Daisies by Carole

Hello everyone

Today featuring Angel Carole with her wonderful idea using
Labels Thirty Nine and Create A Gerber Daisy.

Carole has chosen to create a stunning piece!
A decorated upcycled bottle/vase with wired Gerber Daisies.

The colours are perfect for Autumn.

Printing a message and layering the labels.


Carole is also sharing with us her thoughts on making her projects.

I was attracted to die cutting because it’s quick and easy. 
This Create a Gerber Daisy die is anything but! Gah! That said, 
sometimes it’s good for the soul to have a bit of a faff and a fiddle. 
By the time I’d made four flowers, I’d got it down to a fine art 
and my fingers felt less like ten sausages. 
I have to say that I think the result you can achieve with this die is 
well worth the little extra effort. I can think of lots of things I want to do with it now.
If you wanted it to be a bit quicker you could just make one 
round of petals for each layer, whereas I made two rounds.


I still managed to stick to my self-imposed rule of not buying anything 
for my projects – I have to use all I’ve got around me. 
So the ‘vase’ is a small mineral water bottle and the wire some 
I had in the garage from my wire sculpture phase. 
After I’d finished I found some rusty florists’ wire which 
probably would have looked better than the shiny stuff.


To tidy the back up, I used an extra centre and that held my wire on too. 


Hope you like it!

Happy crafting! C : ) xx

Ingredients used:


Both dies are available on the website, hop over and take a look.

Thank you Carole and please check out Carole's blog here.



Back with more inspiration very soon.
