Happy Birthday card

Hi
Thanks for dropping by to have a look at todays card .I have used the new Lisbon die from Sue Wilson to create this card .The die was purchased at my local craft shop Set which is located in
Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire...You just have to see the prices they have on their Sue Wilson Dies
....bargains !!!!
I also used the pierced squares dies from creative expressions they give a lovey finished edge to your frames. The flowers are from wild orchid and the stamp I used for the sentiment is from stampin up.

Craft-Dee Bowz inspiration project -I'm Yours



Hi
It is Tracey here with my inspiration project for you ..We have a fabulous sponsor for the Craft-DeeBowZ challenge this month and it is "Cute as a Button "


 
 
 The Lucky winner of the Craft-Dee BowZ January Challenge "Anything  goes with a handmade"
 bow will receive 2 digi images as their prize from  "Cute as a Button "
 
I chose the gorgeous image called I'm Yours and you will find her HERE
I have created an easel card using my spellbinders Grande oval dies..The papers I have used are from Bo Bunny and are called Isabella. The fab image was coloured using promarkers.
 
The stunning  double bow was created using my trusty Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool and beautiful pink organza ribbon from my mpp pack,. I wanted to add a WOW factor to my bow so I created a multi loop bow in cream to place underneath the pink one again using my Bow making tool. I added a cute sparkly gem centre to finish it all off
 
 

I added some pretty flowers  and flourishes and die cut balloons tied with twine and a cute little twine bow


 
this is how the card stands (side view)

Diamond wedding anniversary card and box set


Hi
I hope you all had a lovely New Years eve with your family and friends
I had an order from a friend for a Diamond wedding anniversary card and so I got out my new dies I had for Christmas and set to making I t,here's what I came up with.I like the cream and black combo I think its very elegant.#I used my new spellbinders dies to frame the computer generated sentiment .The pins I made myself and there is a mini tutorial under my header so you can make them for       yourself.The jewel centre on the fab bow is from wild orchid and the beautiful bow was created using  my trusty Craft-Dee BowZ maker my fave tool in my craft room.You can find them HERE
I made a box using some glitter card I had for 2 yrs !!! to house the card and added a ribbon wrap with a resin flower cameo to fasten the box .It has Velcro on the back for ease of opening .I added a nice verse inside to finish it off and I am sure that my friend who ordered it will like the finished project .
