Needlepoint Nook

This is the card we are making today and this was my sample 

Very slight differences so subtle you would need to check carefully to spot them.
But I did change the obvious sentiment.

Card Measurements are
Very Vanilla 21cm x 14.8cm score on the long side at 10.5cm and fold and burnish to create your standard A6 card base
I then have a layer of blushing bride that I have cut at 14.3cm x 10cm
the added die elements are all stamped on using Blushing Bride Classic Ink Pad on to very vanilla cardstock and die cut using the matching dies.

the champagne mist shimmer paint I added using a tiny paintbrush and only added to the leaves of the die impression left behind x 

I then added to the large flower using a tiny glue dot a needlepoint nook button x so cute.

Please watch the video below for more in depth tutorial on how to achieve this card.

Beauty Abounds & Butterfly Beauty

Todays Card I have had to wait to make as my big shot died over the December period ( the handle snapped off) so only got my new one delivered recently and this was the FIRST thing I pulled out.

its a very simplistic and elegant card that anyone can do easily x

Card measurements
is a pre bought 6x6 ( about 15cm x 15cm ) card base but to do this yourself
12x12 Whisper White cut at 6" x 12" and score ont he long side at 6"

my layers are
Basic Black 14cm x 14cm about (5.5"x5.5")
Botanical Butterfly 13cm x 13cm about (5"x5")

Die cut your bold layer with Basic Black
and your detailed layer add Sparkle glimmer on to Adhesive sheet and then die cut, peel the back and layer over the bold layer.
I then chopped the 5 butterflies apart and used the individually as I preferred this layout. with the scraps I used the smaller die and die cut lots of the smaller dies from the set so many little ones to use up all that waste cardstock.

I adhered my Basic Black layer to my card stock and then layered my Botanical Butterfly layer on top of that, My butterfly elements I added using dimensionals so that they stood loud and proud.
I stamped the sentiment using Tuxedo Black on to Whisper white and punched using the everyday label punch, I also punched out one in Basic Black to layer beneath it and off set it a little.
I then added some tiny sparkle glimmer paper butterflies here and there these have a similar effect as sequins.
My sentiment also got popped up on dimensionals

Inside the card I added the sentiment saying
"its a million little things" and added 3 small layered butterflies
and finally I added a larger layered butterfly to the envelope to keep everything matching.

I hope you enjoy this tutorial

Incredible Like You

Today's card is a fun, Bright and happy one, using the new stamp set called Incredible like you
it is a set thats is fun and lovely sentiments that we could all use day in and day out.
All the supplies I used are at the bottom of this post with direct link to purchase from my online store.

Card Base is Basic Black 21cm x 14.8cm
Scored on the long side at 10.5cm to give us our basic A6 card Base
Using just scrap paper I cut an insert for the card for the receiver to write a greeting on.
This measures 14.3cm x 10cm

For the front of the card cut your Whisper White Cardstock to 14.3cm x 10cm
then mount your Lined effect Stamp on to your acrylic block H
and start to add your colours in a downward gradient.
The colours I used are shown above
Poppy Parade
Daffodil Delight
Bermuda Bay
Pacific Point
Gorgeous Grape

Using Basic Black Ribbon (we have 2 in the catalogue that will work)
I used seam binding from my stash.
Adhere both ends to the reverse of your card using tear tape
then bring it round to the front and snip between them both centrally and tie a knot ( because it is so low on the card a bow would look cumbersome but you can of course try this is you wish)

I then using my sentiment stamp mounted it on to block C and inked it up using Memento Tuxedo Black on to a bit of Whisper White scrap of Card and punched out using the 2" circle Punch
I used the second largest Stitched Shape Circle die and cut out my Basic Black layer for behind my sentiment.
Adhered the sentiment to the Basic Black Die cut layer using Tombow
 And then added 3 dimensionals on the back of the die cut layer and popped in on my card slightly off center to the right.
And we are done a fun and happy card that will brighten up anyones day.
