Onto the card… I started by cutting out Spellbinders grand squares largest square ( 7×7″) then I made a frame using the dies that measure 6.5″x 6.5″ and 5″x5″, once the frame is cut I then use the square die that measures 5.5″x5.5″ to give an embossed design to the frame. Matt and layer squares onto cream card.

 Use backing paper of your choice for the centre and glue onto base layer, add mounting foam to the frame and attach to base square.  Cut out 2 Tattered Lace oriental fans and concertina fold them, I then cut out 2 Tattered Lace large lilies , 1 small lily and a Tattered Lace stamen.  I cut each petal of the lily to the centre, do this on all 3 flowers, using a moulding mat and ball tool, shape all 3 flowers then layer them up, roll the stamen and glue in the centre of flower, I then sprayed with crafter companion glue and sprinkled with glitter. I then cut out Spellbinders labels 20 (3rd largest die).  Glue the 2 fans to centre of card, then labels 20 then Tattered lace bloom and add any other embellishment you have. Finished card 7.5″x7.5″.

Happy Mother’s Day…

Good morning everyone, today is a very special day for me, I share my birthday with Mother’s day’, So todays post is dedicated to my Mom. I don’t normally post personal things on Facebook/blog but I am truly blessed to have my mom. In July last year my mom was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and the ‘experts’ gave her 3 months to live, to say my family and I were devastated is an understatement. Today March 30th 2014 my Mom is still with us, she isn’t in the best of health but we still have her here and she keeps positive and she keeps smiling. So Happy Mother’s day to my precious Mom I love you more and more each day xx.

Spellbinders grand squares, Spellbinders scalloped borders 2, heartfelt creations majestic blooms and matching stamp.

Rosette…

Morning everyone…I have another card to show you, quite simple again but sometimes thats just the way I like em. I have grown an obsession with rosettes but not really been that good at making them until I saw one of Sue Wilsons posts and how she did her rosette. So this is mine… I have used Spellbinders grand squares, Spellbinders stately circles, Sue Wilson italian border,, The circles in the centre of the rosette are from Anna Griffin and so is the paper. The butterfly is made from a mould & Martha Stewart clay.
