The pansies were handmade using a poppy die[ stamped  copier paper ]  and distress ink

The large outer circle around the image is a spellbinders grande die. The doily is a crafters companion die .

The double looped bow has been made using my bow maker and pretty seam binding type ribbon.

Fluttering



Hi
I got this Angela poole fluttering  butterfly die set from  In2craft  and i love it. It is so pretty and quite large so you can get a big statement card just using the butterfly as a focal point. The die set comes with a stunning large ,intricate border die , a small butterflly and various dies to  embellish the tab that is used to pull down and make the wings move ... plus all the dies to actually construct the butterfly. It is very easy to put together too once it has been cut out .
There is also a humming bird set on the  website....and pretty papers to complete the collection
I used  the stunning Artisan designs Arcadia silk papers designed by the lovely Pete Simpson  on my card and they can be found HERE



When you pull the tab down the wings unfold so it looks like this




But you then fold flat to post ... very clever .

Die cutting essentials special edition craft kit issue 9





HI
I have been sent  a Die cutting essentials special edition kit 09 from from the lovely peeps at  In2Craft.

In the kit comes free a  pretty 2 part heart die .an embossing folder, a beautiful set of papers and an A5 stamp sheet  all with a wedding theme .
  For my project I have made a wedding planner using the eileen hull  Journal  bigz die . I used the beautiful papers to cover the journal . I have kept the front plain as there is an elastic fastener to hold it together which would have knocked off any overly fussy embellishmentsif i had put them on the front.






This is the first project ... There will be another  post in an hour so check that one out using the same kit

Stamps by Chloe cardmaking collection kit issue 3




HI
I have been sent  the latest copy of Stamps by Chloe cardmaking collection issue  3  from the lovely peeps at  In2Craft.
 It contained  a project inspiration magazine... A flower die ...some pretty papers...an A5  embossing folder, a sheet of stamps and a stencil . You can find the mag on sale HERE in the In2craft facebook shop priced at £12.99 







This was made using the die as it comes and i used it to create a decorative corner.





I used the die to create the flowers in white glitter card and snipped them out of the die to make the flower embellishments. The sentiment is a stamp that is included in the kit i just backed it using an oval die and some glittercard.. I added a ribbon and pearls to finish it off .

I created the criss cross panelled background using a piece of card i have had for a while .It was precut as a panel but you could achieve this look using any panel die you own . i just added the same white glitter card i used for the flowers behind it. I made a frame around it  using 2 of the nesting square dies from sue wilson .
