80th Birthday :)

hello you wonderful people... I do hope you are keeping well :)
one of my Dad's older Sister's celebrated her 80th Birthday recently
& we had a family get-together last night for a party... it was a great night as always lol
Anyway's onto my post today :)
I wanted to try a new type of card & thanx to my good friend Teresa... 
I followed her tutorial for a Criss Cross Card which can be found HERE
& this was my finished creation :)
Below is the card with the insert taken out... I printed off the templates for the numbers & then added it to card which I then cut out... then put them on the front of the insert with some text & gems :)

Below is a view of the back side of the insert on which I added a verse :)

The papers are digi papers which I printed off
Flowers are from my stash
Lace I bought from my craft shop round the corner
Ribbon is from my stash
Gems are from my stash
Card stock is from Dovecrafts & Gemstones
I also created the stand as a template in my PSP... printed it off & then cut it out of card :)

thanx so much for stopping by & hopefully leaving me a comment :)

My inking attempt :)

hello lovelies... I hope you are well :)
I finally got my hands on the gorgeous All Occasions Embossing Folder :)
I've always wanted to try the 'inking' technique & decided to try it using my new folder
& here is my very first attempt :)

I used an 'Ink It Up' small ink pad from my set
gems & flower from my stash
The flower bead I bought not long ago too
add a sentiment that I created using my PSP & printed it off then die cut it :)
Thank you so much for stopping by & leaving me a comment :)

More intricate cutting :P

I loved doing the previous cards using a mirror image technique...
so I decided to try it out with Christmas images
again I found these images online so if you know the creator... please let me know so I can give them their well deserved credit :)

I used my two of my Poinsettia dies on the top 2 cards with flat backed beads from my stash
& I used my new Bow Maker for the bottom 2 cards along with mini ornamental slowflakes & again flat backed beads from my stash :P
Thank you so much for stopping by & hopefully leaving me a comment :)

What dya think???

Hello my lovelies.... I do hope you are well :)
I found this pattern which is shown below online (I believe it was originally for use for embroidery)
I don't know who the creator is... but if you know... please let me know... so I can give them the credit  they deserve :)
Anyways... I wondered if I could use the pattern to create & card
I chose a square digi paper that I had then re-sized it accordingly & then pasted the 'masked' image onto it so that it was just the outline & not the white background lol
I printed off two (a pink design & a blue design) I cut out the outer line of the heart first & then attatched it to a piece of coloured card stock... then using a precision knife I cut out all the intricate inner pieces for that one half.... I then folded the top half of the patterened paper back using sticky foam pads & then attatched the whole thing to a patterned card... then I created some bows using my new Bow Maker.... added some gems & sentiments & below are my results :)

thank you so much for popping by & I hope you leave me a comment :)
