Anything goes at CHRISTMAS AT SWEET STAMPIN

Hi everyone

I am so delighted to be here today to share my card for  http://christmasatsweetstampinchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/.  Full details can be found by clicking the above link

Back to my normal style this month.

Here I used a Spellbinders window die which I beaded.  There is a Vintage image behind the Window and lace to give the impression of curtains.  



Again I have used items from Wild Orchid Crafts. Noor Design UK and my stash.

It would be lovely if you could find time to pop over and see the amazing work of the Design Team, and even better if you were to take part in the Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

FUSSY & FANCY FRIDAY CHALLENGE - Add a sentiment

Hi everyone

Today sees the start of another Challenge at http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/


The chosen theme is 'Add a sentiment'.  I was given this beautiful verse from a friend some years ago.  Perfect for someone who is going through a hard time, or sympathy.



Again, I have used items from Wild Orchid Crafts, Noor Design UK and also from my stash.

It would be lovely if you had time to pop over and see the Design Team's beautiful inspiration and even better if you fancy joining in with the challenge. (http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/ )

As always, thanks for looking,

Anything Goes at CHRISTMAS AT SWEET STAMPIN

Hi everyone

I am so delighted to be here today to share my card for  http://christmasatsweetstampinchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/.  Full details can be found by clicking the above link

Here is the card I made.  Instead of using papers I used embossed card and patterned paper for the insertion panel.


This is a very different style for me.  It took a little planning, but I am actually pleased with the result.  It looks so much different and  better in real life.



The card measures roughly 6 inches high by 5.5 inches wide.  I measured 1.5 and 3 cm from the top left side edge and 7.5 cm up from the bottom right side edge.  I then cut diagonally from the 3 cm mark to the bottom right hand corner.  And then again from the 1.5 cm mark to the 7.5 cm mark.  That gave me three panels.  The bottom and top panels are secured with foam pads.   I had seen this done online somewhere, I am not sure where, but once I worked out the measurements it was quite straight forward.  In fact I got quite hooked on making these! 


Again I have used items from Wild Orchid Crafts. Noor Design UK and my stash.

It would be lovely if you could find time to pop over and see the amazing work of the Design Team, and even better if you were to take part in the Challenge.

FUSSY & FANCY FRIDAY CHALLENGE - Flowers, Lace and Pearls

Hi everyone

Today sees the start of another Challenge at http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/


It is my turn to host this challenge and the chosen theme is 'Flowers, Lace and Pearls'.  Well, I thought we are a Fussy & Fancy Challenge so what better embellishments to use!  


I have tried something different for me.  At the latter part of last year I looked at lots of tutorials online to make little pretty lacy dresses.  Then I went ahead and did my own thing.  I purchased a lovely Basque die, and tried making them in this way too.  So you will be seeing dresses galore on cards in the forthcoming weeks! lol  I did get a bit carried away!

This time I only made two!  This is good for me! lol  So I will show you the second one next week.  For this occasion I went pretty focusing on pink.  Again, I have used items from Wild Orchid Crafts, Noor Design UK and also from my stash.

So here we have my card using Flowers, lace and pearls:
