Heart Cut File

I recently treated myself to a Cricut Air 2 and I had downloaded this cut file from the Silhouette store to use on a scrapbook page. I decided it would also make a great Anniversary card, so I just downsized to fit on my card blank. I cut the hearts in different papers and on some white card and attached together, just to support the foam pads more.  I did some stamping on the border down the left hand side. Finished off with some ribbon and a bow.

My Favorite Things Stitched Blooms

I have a few birthdays coming up, so I have been playing with a die set I brought recently. I decide to cut all the elements in white card and then coloured them with Distress Inks. The background is a stencil and I inked again with Distress inks. The card base itself has been created using circle dies, top tip cut a slither off the back circle and it will stand up better.

Magnolia Frame Card

Happy Sunday, I hope you are having a lovely day. Today's card was made using the large Magnolia flower stamp and die. In the stamp set you get this border stamp, which is made to go with the border die. I suddenly thought this week , it would also work for a frame. I used the Stamparatus, so all I had to do was rotate this cardstock, once I had positioned my stamp where I wanted it.

Pressed Petals Specialty Washi tape

Hi there, my card today uses the Washi tape from the Pressed Petal range. This Washi tape comes in a set of two. One is a thin text tape and the other individual petals. When arranged in a circle they make a flower. I finished off with one of the flower centres , these can even be coloured to suit your card. The sentiment is on one of the Stitched Nested Label dies and I created the background using the new Birchwood stamp. To help arrange the flowers, I punched a tiny circle from scrap card and dabbed talc on back of Washi petals to remove sticky. Then it was just a case of adding a tiny dab of glue at base and arranging petals. I added some leaves from a punch to finish. Your get 100 petals on the roll, I chose to have seven petals but you could get away with five.

Good Morning Magnolia

Yesterday I had my first class since loosing my dad, luckily I soon got back into my stride again. Although it was still a bit hot the ladies did a great job and everyone had, including myself and Kerry, a lovely day. I am going to post over the next week or so the cards they made. Every card used products from the 2019/2020 annual Stampin'Up catalogue.

Todays card is a tent fold and uses the Magnolia stamp from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set. This is a large stamp and I have coloured it with the SU Blends. The striped paper is from the matching paper and the sentiment is in same stamp set. The border die comes with co-ordinating die set. I created a soft blended background using Petal Pink ink and a brush.
