Hey everyone .... After doing my last card I just had to use the Rich Razzleberry again .... especially as it goes so beautifully with the 'Share What You Love' DSP...

I used the Dasiy punch and punched out 3 of the flowers in Rich Razzleberry  and folded the petals in half to give the flower some dimension then stuck all 3 together slightly over lapping the petals to get a full coverage.

I also had some Fresh Fig Ribbon left over so also used that as it really does go nicely with Rich Razzleberry.

I decided to use Mossy Meadow Card stock (133683) as my card base. 

Cut a piece of DSP to 14cm x 9.6cm and adhere this to some Whisper White card 14.5cm x 10cm.  Now wrap your ribbon around the 2 pieces of card about 8.5cm's from the bottom of your card and glue down ...  Stick your flower over the ribbon in the centre.
I used a Tinted Faceted button (146349) in green after tying a piece of bakers twine through the button.

Using some scrap Whisper White card I stamped a Thank You sentiment and mounted this on a scrap of the same DSP and a scrap piece of Rich Razzleberry.  I punched a hole in the top end of this sentiment and tied some white string through the hole.. Use Dimentionals to stick this onto the front of the card under the flower .... Using a Stampin' write pen I did some faux stitching around the sentiment to finish it off .

 Tufted Dynamics

OK OK ..... I know I am using the same Embossing folder again .... but come on ..... its GORGEOUS ....

For this card I used the 'Share What You Love ' DSP .... I wasn't sure I actually liked this paper when I saw it in the Catalogue but ordered it as part of the "Paper Share' I ran during June 2018 .... and I am sooooo pleased I did as it really is lovely .... and heavy weight too so great for making 3D projects like boxes or gift bags.

 I used Rich Razzleberry Card stock 119981 for the embossed piece and mounted this on to Whisper White Card base 140490...

For the Sentiment I used the 'Love What You Do' Stamp set 148042
and Heat embossed on to a piece of velum (7.5cm x 5cm)(106584) with the Copper Embossing Powder (141636)  this is another one of my Favourite ...  I cut a piece of DSP (8cm x 5.5cm)and mounted that onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry card (8.3cm x 5.9cm) and mounted that onto a piece of Whisper White (8.7cm x 6.4cm)    I used Dimentionals to stick these mounted mats onto my embossed card .

Then to finish off I used some Nuvo Crystal drops on each of the button pieces to emphasise the Tufted pattern.   This embossing folder really does make a plain card into something a bit special

Using your scrap DSP ...

Using your Scrap DSP 

After making my card with the Party Hats on it from the beautiful Broadway Bound DSP (146277)
I had a strip of card with one row of Party hats on it .... and lets face it none of us likes to waste our gorgeous papers do we .... so I used the GORGEOUS new Embossing folder "Tufted Dynamics" (146335)  ..... OH MY WORD its so so gorgeous .... and so quick to turn a simple card into something just that little bit more special ....

It was a bit hard to get the lighting right so you could see the embossed part of the card  ...

  SO I embossed a piece of Basic Black Card stock using this embossing folder then stuck the strip of Party hats across the middle and using the Celebrate You dies cut out the CELEBRATE and the YOU from Whisper White card stock (3 of each ) and glued them together and stuck them to my embossed piece of card above and below the strip of hats  ..... and Bob's your uncle .... its done ...

 Thank you so much for stopping by

What are you Loving ?

I am so in love with so many things from this years Seasonal Catalogue  .....

I just can't pick only one items .... so over the next few weeks I will be trying to use EVERYTHING I love .....  

This Card was made using the Broadway Bound DSP ..... This has to be one of my favourite papers this year ....  And look how simple it is to make a quick and stunning card in next to no time ....

Simply cut your A4 card into half Portrait style (10.5 cm) and score at 14.9cm's then its a simple case of cutting your 12 x 12 sheet of chosen DSP to 9.3cm x 14.6cm ...

Using the Fine tip glue pen (138309) I traced over the black tassel tops of the Party Hats then sprinkled on some Stampin'  Glitter  Dazzling Diamonds (133751) to give it a bit of sparkle ... 

I then cut out the CELEBRATE word from the Celebrate You thinly dies (146840) THREE times in Basic Black Card stock (121688) and glued them together to make a thick topper  and using my Tombow glue (110755) I adhered to to my card.

Beer Bottle

Hey everyone ..... how are you all .... 
I was asked to make a Alcohol themed card for someones Sons 21st ....  I had wanted to do one of my mini Dioramas but it was working out WAY WAY too expensive so had to rethink what i was going to make ...

BEER BOTTLE .... of course  .....  I had just received a delivery from Stampin' Up! with some of the GORGEOUS Champagne Foil Card ...144748   

So here it is .....

I also used Blueberry Bushel card stock ....146991 and Pineapple Punch Card Stock .... 146994
I printed out the wording then cut it out using punches and dies .... then using a Gold pen I edged the edges of the Blueberry Bushel card ....   The Champagne card stock is just so so gorgeous 

I then made a little box to go with it ... just to make it look a little more special ...

Sympathy Card

Most of us as Card makers hate when we have to make a Sympathy card ... it needs to be respectful and hopefully bring a little comfort to the recipient .... 

I recently found out that a distant cousins husband had died and needed to make her a sympathy card .... I decided i didn't want a very somber looking card but something that brought a little bit of warmth .   It's hard to explain exactly what I mean....    Any way i came up with this very simple  design, but was unsure about the colouring;  so I posted it in a couple of very select card making groups I am in on Facebook to get some thoughts on how they thought the colour was .

I really did get some lovely comments from everyone and they all thought the colour was perfect as it was sedate but not too somber and that it comes across as a warm and loving colour/card.    So I feel much happier now... 

Sometimes we just need that bit of support when making a difficult card and I feel lucky to be apart of the groups I am in..    THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO COMMENTED AND PUT MY MIND AT EASE IN SENDING THE CARD OUT .     You are all appreciated 

I used 
Whisper White Card Stock      106549
Bermuda Bay Ink       131171
Basic Black Ink     140931
Bermuda Bay Ribbon     144198
'Love What You Do' Stamp Set    148042
Sentiment Stamp from "Rooted In Nature'      146482
