Evening everyone

Well weather is changing back to winter here, still more time for crafting LOL

Tonight I have made a card using the gorgeous Tonic Craft Kit #16 again, this kit is so versatile.

I have used the December Skies 6x6 paper pad, as I love Navy and Silver together.

I think this make a lovely wedding card, the sentiment it embossed onto Velum and just cut to shape.

As always thanks for looking.

Evening everyone

Hope you are all enjoying this gorgeous weather we are having, never really known a February like it, this time last year it was minus 10 here wow.

Anyway tonight I want to share a card with you using the Tonic Craft Kit no 16, I have used a lovely 6x6 pad from Daisy Mae designs called Sunshine Flowers.  I love this colour combination.

I die cut a heart from the patterned paper, using the kit and then cut the out line of the flowers from pink card stock and the background from white.  I also used the Tonic shimmer spray for some added colour.

I die cut the word LOVE from white and pink card and layered them for some added dimension.

I finished off using some Nuvo drops.

thanks as always for looking.

Let your Dreams take Flight

Morning everyone

Well tomorrow is my first craft fair, I have been so busy with that I am now concentrating on some cards and other home decor projects.

I have made this card using the free stamp and die set from @diecuttingessentials, it is a lovely set with all British Garden birds.

I did stamp the background using @stampinup Painted Harvest.

I cut out the frame using two rectangle dies in my stash.

As always thanks for looking.

Photo Plaques

Hi Everyone

Well today I have been working on some wooden plaques I actually bought from B&M and re purposed them.

The signs were already made with some quotes on but I wanted some photo plaques with words.  I started by painting over the original ones with some gesso and and then white acrylic paint.  I then decided on what colours I want and dry brushed some on the top of the white.

I choose some wooden words I had in my stash and used the same background paint.

I cut out some insta frames on my cameo and used a bow die from @alinacrafts on Ali Express from different papers I did used the new gingham papers from @stampinup! 
I hot glued the pegs on then added the frames and the words.

I added some new ribbons so they could be with hung from a door or even a picture hook.

I thought it would be fun to add some of your photos and also know that they can be changed when ever you wanted to as the frames are only attached with the peg.

Think I will be searching all the charity shops now for any wooden signs to change.

Anyway thanks as always for looking.
