La Pashe

Hi all,
Here's a La Pashe card I have to share with you!

This is made using the Floral Decoupage Range. 
I cut out the decoupage & layerd it with some Pinflair Glue
The image was originally square with a frame around it but I trimmed it down
to a rectangular shape then added a plain pink mat behind it.
The card base is 7x7"
I trimmed a piece of design paper which matches the image & added a
mat of plain pink paper with a punched boder on either side behind
Next I added a doily, then the image on top.
The sentiment was also from the decoupage sheet & matches beautifully.
I popped that up for some added dimension & added a sheer ribbon double bow 
with a heart shaped button at the centre.

Here's a little side view which shows the dimension a little bit better.

Here's a little heads up!
La Pashe are on Create & Craft TV today at 10am & 2pm
You can catch them on 
Freeview 36, Sky 674, Virgin 748 & Free Sat 813

There's a brand new range offer today, exclusive to Create & Craft 
until 25th May & I'm sure there will be a bargain or two to be had!
Thanks for having a peek at my little card! I hope you like it!

Vintage Birthday Card

Good morning all!
I have another card to share with you today!

This little vintage card was a dream to make up!
It pulled together exactly as I saw it in my minds eye!
The card base is 6x6" Gold cardstock.
The printed acetate is Hunkdory
The doily diecut is X-cut
The vintage image is one from a little book of images I won as part of a candy.
I popped it up for some dimension.
The vintage seam binding was from my stash
& the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
I did look at adding more to it but nothng I tried looked right.
So it reamined as it is!
Quick & simple but I love it!

A little side view for you!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like it!

Birthday Lilies

Hi all,
Here's a simple little card I made a little while back but never managed to blog!
I was asked to make a selection of Birthday cards for a friend,
this is just one of the selection!

The image I've used is from The Crafty Pad Designs who are no longer operating but
some of the artists designs are available at Card Making Downloads
The image has been lightly coloured with my promarkers, cut out with a Spellbinders die,
then inked whilst still in the die using some distress inks.
The papers I've used are from my scraps & the sentiment was done
on the pc then cut with a Spellbinders die too.

The narrow ribbon & bead embellishments are from a reel of 
gift wrapping ribbon which I got at Lidl.
The sheer ribbon bow is from my stash!
Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you like my little creation!
