A Purr-fect Happy Birthday

Kia Ora Koutou

Every so often I get the chance to have a play with all the different products in my craftroom. I was asked to make a birthday card for someone that likes cats or dogs and also loves my floral cards. So I had a lot of fun!

I had just received some amazing flower shaping paper from Rajni Chawla who is the most amazing paper florist and I am so fortunate to be working along side of her in the Heartfelt Creations Design Team and also the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team. She has developed this special paper that is light and easy to shape but is also robust. I really loved using this paper as it is easy on my arthritic hands when I shape flowers by hand.

The products I have used in this card:

Heartfelt Creations – Classic Rose Die, Wild Aster Die, Clematis Flower Die, Fancy Classic Oval Frame Die, Lattice Flourish Gateway die

Heartfelt Creations Black cardstock, Luxe Silver Cardstock

Amazing Paper Grace – Candlewick Rosebud

Spellbinders – Here Kitty

Spellbinders Embossing Folder – Diamond Plaid

Spellbinders Essential Cardstock – Rainforest, Glacier, Snowdrift

Pink Fresh Gems – Ballet Slipper

Dress My Craft Wire Stamens

Altenew ink – Cotton Candy, Blueberry, Citrus Burst

Distress Oxide ink – Mowed Lawn

Spring Blossom Thanks

Kia Ora Koutou

Spring is coming in the northern hemisphere and with spring comes blossoms. Today I am sharing a card made with the beautiful Peach Blossom flower dies from Spellbinders. These flowers are part of the Susan Tierney-Cockburn collections and as a flower maker myself I love them! They are so easy to make and look stunning on a clean and simple background.

This card has made using products that I have purchased.

The embossing folder is the Geo Screen from Spellbinders.

The circle frame is from the Amazing Paper Grace Circle Fluted Classics dies. Also a must have for your craft room!

The sentiment is from the Be Bold Glimmer Sentiments – a must have for your craft room.

Golden Anniversary

Kia Ora Koutou

Have you have die cut or hot foiled a project and missed a part! Well I did that with the beautiful Magnolia Glimmer Blooms Hot Foil Plate. I had cut off part of a leaf but rather than throw it away I decided to create a card with it. I have combined the magnolia image with the Geo Foliage Hot Plate and Foil Plate and Die set for a golden wedding anniversary card.

All products used in this card are from Spellbinders and purchased privately.

The diagonal foil is from the Diagonal Glimmer Stripes Hot Foil Plate. I love how it creates a gorgeous background.

The frame is from the Geo Foliage Hot Foil Plate and Die set.

The sentiment is from the Sentiments Everyday Hot Foil and Plate Set.

Please follow me on Instagram where I will be showing a short reel on how this card has come together.

Thinking of You with APG Dies

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I thought I would share a card made with some gorgeous Amazing Paper Grace dies finished off with some handcrafted flowers.

To make this card I have created a base card of 5″ x 7″ and cut a piece of light blue card to adhere to the front leaving a small white border. I have die cut the lovely Doily Round die and embossed it through the die cutting machine before trimming in half and adhering to the top and bottom of the card. I have layered up the white decorative dies from the Richelieu Square die set onto a piece of light blue card and adhere to the front of the card with some foam tape.

To finish the card I have made some flowers using the Heartfelt Creations Wild Rose set from Soft floral Oriental Paper from Dress My Craft over some Leafy Accents.

The sentiment is from Altenew – Paint a Flower Poppy that I have heat embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock.

Pearls were added to the corners of the square.

I hope that I have inspired you to look at dies in different ways.
