Dress form card


Hi
Here is a card I have made using a sizzix dress form /button and cotton reel die I had in the half price sale at  my friends shop In House Interiors and crafts ...The papers are from TH. I distressed then using a TH distress tool .The lace is from my stash  The dress form was embossed using my fave  indigoblu script stamp and gold wow powders. The tuille around the dress form and the flower dies are classic rose dies from Sue Wilson. The flowers were given the same embossing treatment as the dress form. The frame around the sentiment is a nesty  from the captivating square range by spellbinders,The stamped sentiment and label punch I used to cut it with are both from SU.The stamped sentiment and artisan label punch I used to cut it out with are from SU I love this sentiment its really cute
WOW WE USE A TON OF PRODUCTS TO MAKE JUST 1 CARD DON'T WE !!!

A Decorated candle


Hi
I thought I would craft something different than a card for a change so I dug out some of the vanilla scented candles I bought ages ago and decorated it using what was left of my Tim Holtz papers I have had in my stash for a long time.I used the TH Tattered floral die and layered up a simple flower using an antique brad from SU for the flower centre. I cut a cuff using some linen effect card and a Martha stewart die added some twine and that was it ...a simple but pretty candle ...I think they make pretty inexpensive gifts...
