more die cutting

Happy Monday crafty friends,

Where did that weekend go??

I'm back to share some more cards using the gorgeous Create a card dies from Crafters Companion

This first card is a really simple design, just using the die for the top of the tent fold card then Matt and layering papers from the together forever range finished with a large bow 

 For this  card I used the die on the side edge of the card and also as a decorative border on the base of the card too. Papers for this one are from the signature English country garden collection. Ribbon from my stash 

For this card I used the dies differently again, using as the main focal point on the card layering them up in different shade so of purple. I then created the base edge using the same die. Finished with some organza ribbon and pearls from my stash 


Have a good week

Create a card dies

Good morning bloggers,

How's your weekend going? The boys are off skating this morning so I've sat down to get some posts scheduled for this week. Can't believe it was 5 days ago since my last post again!

Must get back to blogging properly, I do miss it.

Anyway today's shares are this pretty cards I made using the gorgeous Die'sire dies from Crafters Companion

This is one of my favourite Create a card Dies this one is called Isabel
I created this card blank using Centura Pearl and used some scraps of patterned paper from my stash 

I used the same type of design for the card blank on this one too but I used the Sophia die for this one. The word dies are from the brilliant Die'sire essential word dies. These really are the best Dies to have in your collection 

For this last card I've used the word dies again and that beautiful Isabel create a card die..
The paper in this card is from the Sara's Together forever paper pad.


Have a great Sunday

Gifts for mum

Good morning Crafters,

It's a lovely sunning day here and I'm spending it in my craft room as usual ;-)
So nice to feel that spring is arriving, make you feel so much more happier and alive lol..

Thank you for all your comments on my wedding card Sunday, I really enjoy playing with papers and dies lately. Think my stamping and Colouring as took a back seat for a while :-/

For today's share I have some gift boxes I've made for Mother's Day prosecco and chocolate gifts ;-)

I used beautiful shabby chic papers and dies to create these. Finished with some leaves, tag and letters from my stash. 

I really must be getting another few of these papers they are just wonderful and gorgeous to work with.

I was lucky enough to get to play with the new mixed media dies that have been on hochanda this weekend.. one of my fav samples for these shows was this hanging Heart and gift bag I made using some pretty patterned jute.

These new mixed media dies are great for cutting all sorts of mediums, from fabric, mountboard, denim, cork.
