Life's wonderful moments


 Hi
It is Tracey here with this months inspiration project  for Craft-deebowz.. I have made this pretty card this month using the new Heartfelt creations 12x12  peony papers. .
The flowers  and leaves on this card were created using the  peony flower/ leaves  stamps and matching dies also from the same collection . I used the Tim Holtz distress ink in picked raspberry to colour the flowers  and mowed lawn to colour the leaves.


The cute wrap around i created on the front was made using a Tonic  Studio die set called tangled terrace window box .It is very effective on the front of cards gives so much interest and dimension


.The pretty frame around the image was a gift from my Craftdee bowz boss Donna i have no idea who made it but it is so pretty ...

The pretty organza bow was of course created with my Craft-deebowz.  bow making tool .It is my go to bowmaker every time ,so easy to use and fab results.

Merry Christmas



Hi
 If you are a Sue wilson fan  make  In2craft your first stop when buying Creative expressions products as you will find their prices ,service and delivery times cannot be beaten ...
So here  is my latest Dt card for In2craft . I challenged myself to make a christmas card using exactly the  same componants as the last card i made [see the  seasons greetings post below this one] but to make it look totally different . 
I used the carol die from Sue Wilsons Festive collection as the main focus of the card 


Festive Collection - Carol




I used a Creative expressions quilted   embossing folder that is not a christmas themed one but i thing it is generic enough to be used on any project.



The poinsettia flower was made using a Marianne D die and i added  a pretty gem centre from wild orchid . The sentiment came from Phil martins 2017 christmas  stamp set.

I hope you like my card and have a go for yourself .Do visit In2craft  and save yourselves some money on these dies.

seasons greetings





Hi
I have been very busy these last few weeks packing up my home and moving again !!!!
Thats twice is 8 months now and i am telling you its my last ever move .If i even hint at maybe i will move then you have my permission to slap me lol
So i had no craft tim while this was happening but i am now all set up except for my video equipment which will be sorted soon and here is the first of my Christmas cards  made for In2craft featuring the Sue wilson Carol die.

Festive Collection - Carol
 If you are a Sue wilson fan  make  In2craft your first stop when buying Creative expressions products as you will find their prices ,service and delivery times cannot be beaten ...
I scoured pinterest for a template to make a star shape and there are a lot on there for you to use .so simply choose a shape you like and enlarge it in your graphics programme of choice .This one was 21.cm x 21cm ( gold layer) and then i resized one to 19x19cm ( white layer).I printed them out onto copier paper and then cut them out to make the templates which i have laminated 
 I also wanted to make a card base so i used  the 21cm template and placed it onto apre made  8x8 card blank with one of the star points sitting over the fold line at the widest part (THE SAME WAY YOU DO FOR MAKING AN EASEL CARD BASE).
It was plain sailing from there really .



I cut the larger template in gold mirri card and the smaller one in white card
I only have one embossing folder from sue wilson ,  it is not christmas themed but i find it works well on any theme of project you are making. i used this folder to emboss the smaller white star i had cut out.I love dry embossing as it just transforms a plain piece if card into something special.
I cut the carol die in gold and used the fab corresponding stamp for the image in the centre which was stamped in gold ink and heat embossed with clear detail cosmic shimmer embossing powder.




 Carol's Festive Gifts
The handmade flower is made from silk foamiran .



I added my usual flourishes and a sweet little tag with the seasons greetings sentiment .I also cut a bramble branch memory box die in white just to add a little something extra
I find when making Christmas cards you must keep them as simple as possible as we make so many and they take a long time if they are too complicated . This new range of sue wilson dies would be perfect for making quick cards as well as making those special cards using all your favourite techniques.
I hope you like my card and have a go for yourself .Do visit In2craft  and save yourselves some money on these dies.
