More Pretty Posy

Good morning

Today I would like to share with you two more cards made with the First Edition 'Pretty Posy' Paper pad.



This first card was made using just the papers with blue in it.
I cut the card into reducing sized squares.
Then I matted them all onto Blue cardstock.
Instead of layering them straight, I have twisted them for a bit more interest.
I wrapped blue organza ribbon around the base layer.
The stamped sentiment was stamped with Denim Adirondak ink.
Three small blue buttons in the bottom left hand corner.
A small blue gem in each corner of the third layer to finish the card.


For this card I again used a 6x6" card blank.
This time I cut two layers from the red pages of the pad.
I then cut a strip of white paper with the red circles on.
The I fussy cut one of the hearts out of the paper.
This was them mounted onto a foam pad and put onto a square of white card.
I then matted all the layers onto red card stock.
A added a small gem in each corner of the layers.

Thanks for stopping by.

More Art Journal pages

Good Morning

Today I would like to share with you another couple of pages from my Journal.



This page was gently inked with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.
The quote was from my Pintrest boards.

I have also used a harlequin stencil with more yellow DI.
The stamps are from the Crafters Companion Textures stamp set.


This page was inked with Moss Green DI.
Then the quote printed off and adhered to the page with Mod Podge.
The stamps are again from Crafters Companion, Textures.

Floral Muse Mini Book

Good Morning

Today I would like to share with you a mini book made from the gorgeous Floral Muse papers from Trimcraft.




The book is made from 4" greyboard covers.
These were covered with the floral papers.
The Butterfly was covered with Glossy Accents and then had Glamour Dust sprinkled over the top.
The 'Life is Beautiful' sticker was put in the top corner.
With the wooden frame around it.
A small bow added to the bottom corner of the frame.


The pages were made by cutting the paper down to 3.5" by 7" long.
They were then folded upwards in half.
They were then cut on the diagonal.
The piece cut off was then trimmed down and used on another page.


On some pages I stamped butterfly's in Brown Distress ink.
Then coloured them in, in Victorian Velvet Distress.


On some pages I put a sticker from the set.

In all the pockets I put a Sizzix die cut tag.
The mini book was bound together with a Bind It All.


Thanks for stopping by.

Pretty Posy Cards

Good morning

 Today I would like to share with you three cards I made using the First Edition Pretty Posy Papeer pad. I have made these using only the papers and no toppers!

All three cards have been made using 6x6" card bases.


For this first card I used the Pink lattice paper, as the background.
Then a section of the blue floral paper.
Then a small offcut of the white heart papers.
A small length of the stripy paper.
All these papers were layered onto pick cardstock.
Some pink organza ribbon was wrapped around the striped panel.
The stamp used was from the Floral Muse collection.
Three small gems in the top left and bottom right finish the card off.


For this second card I used a large square of the striped card.
Backed this onto pink card.
When I cut the blue floral papers I accidentally cut it too small.
So I divided into four squares onto the pink card.
I then wrapped the pink organza ribbon around this panel and tied a bow.
Small gems in each corner to finish.


For this last card I decided not to stay clean and simple.
So I cut a piece of pink cardstock slightly smaller than the card base.
I then cut a square of the stripy paper.
A square of the pink lattice paper.
Then a square of the blue floral paper.
On each of these I inked the edges using Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.
All these edges were then distressed using a distress tool 
(you can also used your scissors to get the same effect).
I fussy cut the large roses from the papers, and then highlighted them with Glossy Accents.
This was then raised up from the card with foam pads.
The sentiment was stamped in Frayed Burlap with the butterfly coloured in Victorian Velvet.
(This stamp is from the Floral Muse collection.)

Thanks for stopping by.

The printing was done on the PC.
This was then die cut using Spellbinders Labels 4 (large)
This was matted onto red mirri card, die cut using the next die up.
The leafy flourish was die cut using a Marianne Die in green Bazzill card.
The flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid roses, and white Petaloo flowers.
The white flowers were coloured with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
The flowers then had stickles glitter glue dabbed on them.
The butterfly's came from my stash.
Red organza ribbon was then tied round the spine.
