21st Birthday

Good Morning all. I made this for a friends daughter. The background was created with my Gelli plate which i tried out the other day making backgrounds. So cool, loved it. 
I bought a load of cardboard embellishments from create and craft and so glad i did as they came in handy for the numbers. All I did was put some gilding flakes on. 

The Square matts were cut out with my Spellbinders grand squares.  Love these dies as now my matting and layering is always perfect.

The topper matts were cut out in glitter card and ivory card with the Go Kreate Barge frame dies.  I embossed the ivory one with the Darice happy birthday embossing folder.


I added some gorgeous flowers I bought from Wild Orchid crafts online.  They have such a beautiful selection of flowers at reasonable prices.  To finish off i added some flat back pearls to the corners.
Not quite sure if the card needs something else. Or should I just leave it alone.   I sometimes don't know when to stop lol

Have a great weekend xx

Framing the topper

Hello everyone.  This is another of the toppers from Kanban  I bought a while ago.  I decided to build a frame around.

First of all i matted and layered white and blue card.  The top white matt i first cut out the aperture and then ran it through the  Sue Wilson seagarden embossing folder.   I then cut out a frame with two Spellbinder labels 22 dies.
I placed the topper underneath the aperture and then added some ribbon around the white matt then stuck down the matt onto the the other matts  I added a die cut swirl, some flowers and a sentiment.

First of all i matted and layered white and pink card.  The top white matt i first cut out the aperture and then ran it through the Spellbinder's Paisley embossing folder.   I then cut out a frame with the largest and 3nd largest spellbinder Labels 22 dies.
I placed the topper underneath the aperture and then added some ribbon around the white matt then stuck doen the matt onto the pink card.  I added some flowers and a sentiment.

Tonic versus Spellbinder

Hello there,
I just purchased the new tonic die which came with various Christmas tags to go with it. I decided to use it differently and not use the tag to show you dont have to use it the way it was intended.
I first cut out the tonic square .  I bcaked it off with glitter crad and cut out the bottom with a Spellbinder bracket die.  I also used the die to cut out some co-ordinating card.
I stamped and coloured the topper and cut it out with my Spellbinders   Labels 22 die and cut out the cordinating  card with the decorative labels 22 die.
I added a bow and brad and also some small butterflies made with the Martha Stewart clay.

Spellbinder card

Hi everyone,  sorry I haven't posted for a while but i've not been in good health. Unfortunately my Arthritis has been playing up and i've not been able to sit and craft due to pain.
anyway I'm not too bad now and decided to go into my craft room and make a card using the Spellbinder 'Just swinging' die.

First of all I cut a piece of cream card and embossed it with my Sue Wilson embossing folder.  I matted it onto gold card and fixed it onto my base card.
I cut out the just swinging die but not fully so it was the design was left in the card. I mounted it with foame pads onto a piece of patterned paper and glued it to the embossed background.
I added a bow, die cut fir tree sprig, flowers sprig and a beaded dangler pendant then cut out an embossed sentiment with my tag die and added a co-ordinating piece of ribbon..
I added gold stickles to the tree as berries.
