I Believe In You...


Hello crafty friends and visitors, did you have a bad storm where you are in UK yesterday! 
Hail stones size of golf balls, thought our windows where going to cave in..Never seen rain like that for a long time, with thunder & lighting..
Hope you are all safe and no flash flooding..

One of my favourite flowers are POPPIES ..
What a beautiful unusual design these are by "Alexandra Renke"  from Oysterstamps they cut like butter..lol.
Three design poppy dies in the packet, they all look just as pretty on their own or grouped together.


Love the effect of crepe paper for poppies, makes them so life like..
I have used lemon as I wanted to make this colour poppies as I always seen to go with red!



I have also used my Distress Oxide Inks, time I had a proper play, colours on flowers used.. Spiced Marmalade..&  Fossilized Amber.
Shading on the background Peeled Paint, this I dropped water drops from my hand, love the soft effect..  "I believe In You" also Spiced Marmalade..&  Fossilized Amber. inked then die cut.




I have raised my crepe paper petals only!  blob of hot glue..you could  just leave them flat and would look just as lovely,..
I have used  a strong dark green card for the foliage as I though it needed a contrast.
Spellbinder "Art Deco"   Astoria Decorative Elements for my background and this placed onto Creative Expression. Noble Pinpoint Rectangle, I had to reduce the width..
Few Nova Jewell Drop`s around the foliage and liquid pearls in green.

Filigree Heart.




Hello crafty friends and visitors, sure has been a scorcher of a day today! 
Typical Bank Holiday weather as of tomorrow (Sat), Thunderstorms on there way!! and will be a lot cooler too, I do not mind that it`s the rain..

Sharing this card, taken a couple of days to make, kept changing my mind as you do lol.


This central Filigree Heart is by "Precious Marieke"  http://www.oysterstamps.co.uk/  sorry if you would like it you`ll have to phone 01634 686823 as I cannot find a link.

I cut a Tattered lace white heart.
Next using Filigree Heart.. I have cut the pretty heart in the centre of this as I want to place the heart back in the cut out.
Next I embossed using the heart die on blue card. 
I can now see where I need to add colour to this blue card for my roses.
Coloured  using pro markers in pink.. thought it looked to plain!!  so I have added white around the edges with "Correction Fluid" using the little brush..(first time I`ve tried this)
Adhere the lacy die cut to this embossed coloured blue card..Trim using scissor following the outer pattern  
Using a piece of foam tape the size of the larger white heart, this I stuck to the back..now I placed my heart back in the cutout as shown.




All my heart layers in blue card had the same treatment Pink Pro Marker and Correction Fluid 
Bow was white.. this coloured with pro maker.. looked to plain so it got splattered..

Background I used Memory Box. Swirling Stitches.
Grape Vine Leaf with the bow.
stamp from my stash.
Finished with Poppystamps Bow and String  here..some  gems.  two hearts in the center.



Thank you for stopping by, enjoy your Bank Holiday..Pam

Princess Faerie Silhouette.


Hello friends and followers.
Sharing a  card with you today, I must confess I was not a fan of  Fairies, WOW change my mind since these pretty dies came along from Poppystamps May release.





Thought I would create a woodland scene with "Princess Faerie"  as a silhouette.. I`m sure she would look  just as pretty with no wings, as a child dancer.


I have die cut three fairies to add depth, wings have been cut with sparkly black card.. I used foam sticky tape  on the back.




In this photo is my very old "Angelina Fusible Fibre"  you get in a  packet, you pull some fibres out and lay a thin layer onto half a sheet of folded copy paper, sandwich the fibres by folding the  paper over, then using a med heat iron onto the paper, iron the fibres together, this makes it fused together.. I adhered my wings with pva glue and cut around with scissors.




Added a touch of blue ink to the white background.
These fibres give a lovely delicate look to her wings. I adhered them to the silhouette with pva glue.



I grounded her onto the Dotted Curve, stamped with the new Fairy Greetings.. Swaying Birch has been cut in grey card and inked some shading in grey, Chirping Birds in the branch`s. 
Magnificent Mini Faeries  with Mushrooms and Toadstools .
dotted a few crystal gems. finished card size 5.1/2" x 6.1/2".
Hope you like this card..my first attempt with Faerie`s..

Butterfly Gate Fold Card..


Good afternoon friends and visitors, wish today would make it`s mind up! sun shine and showers.

I started with card size 6"x 12" to make this gate-fold card..finished size 6" x 4.1/4" closed.


Used Concord & 9th die Butterfly Cards.. Butterfly Beauty Stamp set.
For this butterfly, I used the edger die & fancy die..
 I fussy cut a plain stamped image, using a mix of  Versa Magic  inks on the stamp and same mix I cut a fancy butterfly. these I adhered in the center of the butterfly. 
Sentiment is from the same stamp set.




I have made a frame for the inside with Amy Designs "Christmas Card Set"  Memory Box Swirling Stitches for interest  and this lovely open Butterfly " Floral & Flutter Dies " Concord & 9th.




There is quite a few ways to use these Stamp and Die set..you get some good ideas if you google them.

Rather that leave  square corners, I used my We-R-Memorykeepers corner rounders..
