Wedding Day

Hi all
It is Tracey here with my post for this month.The Dt are featuring wedding projects this month so i have made this silver and white themed  wedding card .I used silver mirri card and white hammered card throughout the design.I also added some silver embossed acetate from Hunkydory over the front to give more detail.The flowers are pre made and are from wild orchid.The cute wedding rings  and flourishes are cut from  memory box dies. The sentiment and rose are embossed with silver wow powder and are a stamp set from visible image.The inside of the card has been decorated toousing the same acetate.The large heart aperture and silver heart frame around it in the centre was created using sizzix dies.The heart shape that swings in the middle has been made using cheery lynn dies.
I used my trusty Craft-Dee BowZ Bow maker to make the delicate organza bow, it is my go to bow maker as it is so easy to use

Hi all
Here is a birthday card i made for a friend.After seeing all the new die range featuring fuschias from heartfelt designs i had a go at creating my own fuschias using dies i had already bought from Britannia dies and i don't think they look too bad even if i do say so myself lol.
I used craftwork card papers .Circle  and scalloped circle nesties,an 8x8 card blank .a spellbinders rectangular fancy die on the inside.The sentiment on the inside is actually a pre printed craftwork cards insert which i die cut to fit the frame.The leaves are made using a sizzix die and the flowera rae made using craftwoek card papers and a britannia flower die.The ribbon is from my stash and i used my Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker to form the bow you can find out all about it HERE 



.The pins i made myself and there is a very basic tutorial HERE to show you how to make them for yourselves.The gem centre is from wild orchid.
