Happy Birthday Kisses Lyra Pearl.......





Hi
Tracey here with  my mid- month inspiration project for Craft-Dee bowz.  so this month i am showing you the card i made for my Beautiful Granddaughter Lyra -Pearl's 2nd  Birthday in Februaury  . I made a large easel card using the Grande circle dies from spellbinders. such a shame they no longer make these massive dies ,they sure make a showstopping card .



I used a Mo manning image called Kisses  and coloured her with Promarkers.


I made a foamiran Rose  and added some Wild Orchid flowers for extra prettiness.




I used my trusty Craft-Dee bowz.  Bow maker to make a double looped organza bow.and added a resin flower to finish the centre .

A Grateful Heart



Hi
 Here is  my mid month inspiration project for this months CraftDee BowZ Challenge. I have gone a little shabby chic with this project and i really enjoyed getting out all those left over bits of lace and die cuts i have been saving for a long time and using some of them up on this pretty project .


I have used a pretty resin heart as the focal point and i added some glitter to make it sparkle .


I handmade the paper and Foamiran flowers again adding some glitter and stormy sky distress ink to the edges.



I made a double layer string bow and a double layer thin ribbon bow on my CraftDee BowZ   bow maker and tucked them in under the flower..The papers are from crafters companion shabby chic range and the  edges were distressed with a Tim Holtz distress tool.. The sentiment is also from Tim Holtz  ideaology sticker pad.and says Start Each Day With A Grateful Heart.
 I love the softness and dimension on this card .

Secret Romance card and tag set


Hi
Hi
I am a member if the In2Craft Dt and i have bought these beautiful pads from them so i could have a play and create some pretty projects. The pads are from the paper boutique new release this month . I bought the Pink Paradise pad and matching A4 card and the Secret Romance pad and matching card both in 8X8 as thats my fave size of pad to buy .
Here is a you tube video of me showing these gorgeous papers up close .


There is a post below this one showing a project using the pink paradise set but for this project i have used the Secret Romance set of papers and card.
I created a card and framed it using an easy technique you can find HERE. I  adjusted the score lines from the ones in the tutorial to give a thinner edge to the frame . i scored the 8X8 paper at 1cm ,2cm,4cm 5c on all sides so i could fit the die cut i wanted to use inside it . I uised the Sue wilson Eve set  .



The  Handmade flower was made using Foamiran and  Tim Holtz Stormy sky  distress oxide .The leaves are made from the fern  dies by Sue wilson .


  The  Mdf  tag was made using the same products so it matched

love life ... for in2craft


Hi
I am a member if the In2Craft Dt and i have bought these beautiful pads from them so i could have a play and create some pretty projects. The pads are from the paper boutique new release this month . I bought the Pink Paradise pad and matching A4 card and the Secret Romance pad and matching card both in 8X8 as thats my fave size of pad to buy .
Here is a you tube video of me showing these gorgeous papers up close .


This project above is using the pink paradise set.



The papers are beautiful patterns and great quality , they are uncoated so can be used with your stamps and inks.
The card was created using left over die cuts and lace and embellishments i had in my bit box. The main oval frame that the words sit on has been cut from a tonic mixed media die set .The flowers have been hand made using foamiran for the large one  and airdried clay for the smaller one. I also used Spun sugar distress oxide as it is the perfect match for this set of papers.


I hope you like the project and that you take a look at the In2Craft  facebook page for a look at whats new in craft . Take a look at their prices in the shop , there is a shop link on the facebook page ,you will not find better prices anywhere else .

Christina Griffith card making magic all in one collection January edition


Hi 
I was asked by The In2craft guys to make a couple of projects using the new Christina griffith cardmaking magic January edition  kit and  its free gifts inside the issue . you can find it  HERE in the In2craft shop
Here you can see  a quick video of the free items you receive in the kit.


.

The blue card  above was made using one of the projects in the mag as inspiration but i changed a couple of things to make it my own .I used all the free items to create the card.flower stamps and dies, leaf stamps,flourish die, i also used the template as a stencil 




The easel card above  i created using the  papers,flower dies, butterfly stamp and flourish die  from the kit and dies from other companies to show that you can mix and match the free items with your own stash at home


This card is very basic and shows the embossing folder off well . it does emboss very deeply and as you can see i didnt use much else on the card . .It would make a really nice sorry , thank you or even with a bit more embellishing ... a nice wedding invitation.
I hope that ypu like the cards and that you pop over to In2craft and have a look at their facebook page for whats new in craft land and also have a look at their shop where i know you will find amazing prices ... 
Happy crafting
