Welcome to my world of craftiness

First Creative Expressions Design team post…

on 01/06/2015

Hi everyone, So todays post is my first for the Creative Expressions design team, I will be posting on here every Monday, my Facebook page will have a different card so why not pop over and have a peek.  All the items I have used for this card are from Creative Expressions, if you go to their website you can find out where you nearest stockist is. Coconut white card Blush card Sticky adhesive sheet Diamond snow glitter Lisbon die set Sue Wilson Classic fold over flower die Felt Ribbon Amazing sentiments Sue Wilson Charming hearts corner die Small circle dazzlers 3mm white pearls Cosmic shimmer glue Foam pads Step 1. Cut a piece of coconut white card 6” square, then cut the lisbon die in the centre (not the outside edge die) Step 2. Cut a 2nd piece of coconut white card 6” square, then cut just the outside edge die in the centre Step 3. Cut a piece of blush card 5” square and layer it onto some sticky adhesive sheet, peel off the top layer and cover with diamond snow glitter Step 4. Cut a base layer of coconut white card measuring 7’ square and mat and layer onto blush card, then glue your glitter piece of card in the centre Step 5. Mount the 1st die cut layer with foam pads and layer on top of the glitter card Step 6. Mount the 2nd die cut piece of card with foam pads and layer on top of the 1st piece so it all lines up Step 7. Cut out fold over flower in felt, add a thin line of Cosmic shimmer glue to the edge and fold over to stick together Step 8. Start rolling the felt to create the flower, when you get to the end, add a little glue to hold together Step 9. Glue the charming heart corner die cuts to the front on each corner, also add a little pearl to the corners. Glue ribbon on, then the flower and add a little dazzler to the centre of flower, stamp up your sentiment and add that to the small part of the Lisbon die and add to the centre of card. I use 300gsm A3 card to make a finished card of 7.5” IMGP0212 Thanks for looking x

    Good morning Debbie. Congratulations on being on the CE Design Team. They couldn’t have selected a better person. Just love your cards. Today’s card is stunning and love the way you used 2 colours of felt for the foldover flower. Just wondering how you did the two colours. Did you mount one over the other before you started to roll. It is very effective. Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

    Hello Debbie,

    Another beautiful card to start your journey with Creative Expressions. Your work is always wonderful to see and I know where I’ll be checking every Monday first thing. I don’t want to be negative and I don’t know if it’s just my computer, but your photo came across very dark. No matter though, your beautiful works shows through.
