Embossed

Hello lovely people,

I am here with a very quick post to share my card for Totally Gorjuss and this week we want to see some ‘Embossing.’  Now, I don’t use either heat or dry embossing all that much but I do have a couple of embossing folders that don’t see the light of day very much.  So, I shook the dust off one of them and went for a really simple little design;

Card recipe;
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug D’vine swirl
Lace: from The Ribbon Girl
Heart / flower: cut with Cricut
Wooden heart button: from stash

I surprised myself with how much I liked this card when it was finished and even better, it didn’t take very long to make!

Do stop by the Totally Gorjuss blog to see some inspirational ideas for embossing from the rest of the DT.

Thanks for visiting,

Hugs,

Easter treats

Hello lovely people,

I have just had a really lovely weekend and isn’t it nice to have slightly warmer weather?  We went for a pub lunch with friends on Saturday followed by a walk in beautiful sunshine; maybe Spring is finally here?!

I also spent some time sharing my crafting supplies with a friend who is just starting out making cards and helped her make her first card – we were both so proud!

One thing I really enjoy at Easter is making little treat bags for my niece and nephews and this year I wanted to try a gift bag design that I saw on Pinterest.  I didn’t print the template or use the dimensions from the original post (which you can find here) but just messed around with some scrap paper until I found a size that I liked.

I attached a flap of card to the back of the bag then folded it over the front and added a sweet mini peg to keep it all closed up.  I popped some eggs in a cellophane bag and they fitted perfectly in the space inside!

Here’s what it looks like inside so you can see the folding;

The images are a set from Pink Petticoat which I coloured with Copics then cut out with a circle Nestie die and layered onto a scalloped circle cut with my Cricut.

2) Cute Card Thursday (Something borrowed – the idea from Pinterest)

3) ABC (K is for Kraft)

4) Sweet Stampin’ (Scallops)

Thanks so much for visiting,

Krafty colouring

Hello lovely people,

The Passion for ProMarkers Challenge theme is ‘colouring on Kraft’ this week and I thought I would give it a go.  I took the good advice to choose a simple image and keep the colouring really simple.  I am not sure what I think of my attempt but am glad I gave it a go and would maybe try something more ambitious next time.
