Something a little different….

Hi folks, something a little different from me today although I’m quite pleased with how its turned out, I got my inspiration from pinterest which is fab if you lose your mojo. Items use Spellbinders grand squares, hexagon die from papertrey ink, branch/ leaf dies, sorry can’t remember which branch dies I used as I threw the packet away a while ago but you can use any branch/ leaf die. Paper from Live and love crafts, little wooden fairy was from the NEC craft show which I painted white and then glittered. Flowers from wild orchid crafts.

Marianne wall and brick set…

Hi everyone, Well I have found my new favourite embossing folder and die set by marianne designs, Its DF3403 wall and brick set, it embosses the wall and cuts out the individual bricks, wouldn’t have thought i could do much with this but I love the end results.  Also used Spellbinders grand squares, memory box gothic small window, flowers from sweet lilac flowers, picture from Etsy, paper from Live and love crafts.  Tomorrow I will post another card with the same wall set but with a sentiment instead of a picture.

Friends like you are priceless..

Hi everyone, Im having a long break from cards at the moment, just doing the odd one, I have also had a new addition to the family that is taking up my time, a 6 month old tiny  chihuahua called Ollie. But first here is a card I did a few months back, ingredients are… Spellbinders grand squares, Spellbinders majestic circles, Spellbinders fairy cierra , Marianne rolled flowers LR0256, Marrianne anja die, Lavinia fairy stamp and background, sorry but can’t remember what die I used for the sentiment.  Onto my little Ollie, here is a picture of the little mite, he is very nervous and thinks its ok to do his business in the house, so I have a lot of work to do with him but he is gorgeous. x

Sorry but they have changed the way I post on here so it looks different, If you click on the picture it should enlarge. x
