A very belated Happy New Year to everyone!
I've just realised I've been MIA for just about 3 months......... sorry I've not been around , but like lots of people haven’t been very well and then the rush up to Christmas completely submerged me to boot!!! Lol I was desperately trying to get all my handmade cards ready to send out……..don’t you just hate all those inserts for different sized cards? Yawn…… Still I managed it in the end, as I’m sure you all did as well.
Anyway as I've been making cards using some dies that hadn't seen the light of day yet I thought I’d pop by to show them to you. Mostly using Creative Expressions dies and the genius of Sue Wilson, so lots of ideas have been CAS(e)d.
This card uses the pretty Gemini Dies – Carina together with the Spanish Collection tag. The sentiment is from the Stampin Up Oval All set, gold embossed. Matted and layered using linen cream card and some pretty packaging I’d saved. Paper pierced around the edge of the middle mat and added some ribbon.
For this card I used up a piece of acetate that I’d used to demonstrate the Caught in Crystal technique at club a while ago. Die cut the French Collection Background to go over the top. The tag is from the French Collection as well; matted and layered with ribbon and gems to finish off.
Now this one is a definite CAS(e) from a Sue Wilson card using the French Collection Corner and tag and the Sue Wilson Quilted embossing folder. I thought this was such a pretty way of using the corners to make up the backing frame for the tag – a bit of paper piercing and the addition of mats, layers and some pearls and voila, a really pretty card.
This last one is using the Tonic Verso Sending a Big Hug die set, Spellbinders Grand Circles dies and the Tattered Lace Westminster Corner with a border of the Creative Expressions Gemini – Carina die. I made some felt roses using Creative Expressions Finishing Touches – Classic Rose and added some ribbon and pearls to finish off.
Well, thanks for stopping by – hope you've all now stashed your Christmas gear away and are looking forward to an exciting 2015.
