Celebrating Weddings

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and thank you for dropping by my blog. I love making wedding cards – in fact they are my favourite cards to make and today I am sharing another wedding card. I am participating in the Marianne Designs challenge that is all about hearts. I love the LR0299 heart from Marianne Designs and here I have combined it with other dies from Marianne Designs as well as my favourite Heartfelt Creations Classic Roses.

Triple Easel Wedding Card Featuring Heartfelt Creations Flowers

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back.  Today I have a triple easel wedding card.  I had just sold a card on Trade Me and the one I had in the shop was not something I could send out.!  So I made another one using Lush Lilacs and Classic Roses and a different embossing folder to the previous ones I had done before.   Here is the link to my previous post and there is a link for instructions on how to make this card.  They are a lot easier than they look as it is just three different easel cards joined together.  Next time I will be placing the easels closer together but I was in a rush today.

These are so easy to make and I hope that I have inspired you to try one for yourself.

Saying it with Love

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

I have had some new products come in and I have been having a play and I must say I was quite impressed by my results.  I have used a new Crafter’s Companion embossing folder called Rambling Rose and new cardstock and stamens from iCraft for my flowers.  I am so in love with the cardstock from iCraft.  My flowers were so easy to craft and the cardstock did not get soggy and break.

This was the first card I have made for a while that has not been for the Design Team and I had a lot of fun making it but there is no tutorial sorry.

Don’t forget to check back on Wednesday for Inspiration Wednesday at Heartfelt Creations.

If you don’t try you don’t achieve!
