Waxed Blue Heart

Todays post is a card that John Lockwood made a back in February, I decided to make one myself.

handmade card made with sue wilson heart of hearts die

I cut out the outside die from the heart of heart die set and leaving it in place I embossed the dark card with the illusions embossing folder and then used some silver gilding wax over the top. I made the rest of it pretty much the same as Johns one.

The smallest things canvas.

I have a wee canvas for the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Craft group challenge over on Facebook. In honour of St Patricks day this month, the challenge is to create a project with green in it.

The_smallest_things_canvas.jpg

I started with a canvas that i didn’t particularly like and took the Swirled hearts texture sheet from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts which I scraped some texture paste through. I then used different colours of Colourarte silks to get the green colours of the bacground. I printed the quote onto a piece of green paper and then cut it into seperate words before I stuck it onto the canvas. The heart is from the Waterworks shape set and it was painted with Vintage mint silk acrylic glaze from colourarte. I used a stabilo all surface pencil to outline the words and make them stand out against the background. I finished the whole thing off with some prima flowers.

Spring Birthday card with Sue Wilson dies

Spring birthday card

Today I have a spring birthday card to share with you. I think I am in love with the Honeydew card colour, it is so fresh looking.

Spring birthday card

I cut the New Zealand Collection Wellington die out of some coconut white card and then rotated it 45 degrees and cut it again.  I then backed this with some Honeydew foundation card. I used a tonic die to cover the hole left by the Wellington die then circles to matt the Perspectives Collection Happy Birthday Circle.  The outside frames were cut using the noble pierced squares and the 3 flowers in the middle using Finishing Touches – Perfect Peony Complete Petals and Finishing Touches – Perfect Peony Open Petals. The finished card measures 6.5″ square.

Fun with the Canadian Collection Die Set

Canadian Border Card in lilac

I thought I would have a bit of a play around with Canadian Collection of dies by Sue Wilson and here is what I came up with.

Canadian Border Card in lilac

First I cut out the Canadian Collection – Background in some coconut white foundation card and cut it up into 6 lots of 4 squares which I then mounted onto some lilac card. Next I cut the Canadian Collection – Corner, Border & Tag out 4 times in some lilac foundation card, adhered it onto the lilac background and mitred at the corners. The whole thing was then put on to a matt of coconut white. I used the montreal die to cut out a matt for the center tag and stamped a sentiment onto the coconut white card. Perfect Peony Open Petals and Perfect Peony Complete Petals were used along with the Delicate Fronds die to finish off the card. The finished card measures 6″ by 7 3/4″.

Mixing it up

new baby card with humphrey

First of all can I say welcome to all the people who have come to my blog from the SET craft Facebook page, its great to have you here 🙂

Today I have a card for you that shows you can use all those images from the CDs you have tucked away along with your brand new dies. I printed out a picture from one of my Humphries Corner CDs and used the Grace frame die to cut out the image. I used background paper and sentiments also printed from the CD to make up the card too. The Brighter Days die made a great frame for the central image, backed with some of the same backing paper. I finished off by cutting the “new baby” sentiment to fit onto the Pierced Flag die and placed stick on pearls in the corner.

Thanks card with Sue Wilson dies

Thanks Card using Sue Wilson dies

Well here I am again, ages since my last post but a lot has been happening around here. Both of our boys have started to surf over the summer largely thanks to NAS Moray and Nairn. Number one son has made the huge transition to secondary school. Thankfully the support is SO much better than his primary school and he is doing quite well.

As you can imagine, with all this going on, I haven’t really had much time to craft. I have manage to make a card this weekend for the fab staff in the canteen at the academy as they have been brilliant in helping out with number one son being able to get lunch that he likes to eat.

The finished card size is 7 1/4″ square
