Pink and Brown cupcakes

This card I have used one of the Joy Crafts new Vintage Flourishes dies, this one the Cupcake 6003/0021

For this I have also used the Marianne Creatables Designer Doily LR0130 which I mounted on brown card.  The cupcakes are mounted on some embossed card, with the Brocade Craft concepts embossing folder.  The happy birthday banner is cut freehand with a variety of patterned pastel papers and threaded on some pink embroidery floss that I tied in a knot each end.  The words are done with some letter dots I have had for quite a while.  Finally a brown ribbon with pink hearts and three sparkly dots.

I have made two cards using the Marianne Creatables cross LR0252 die for Fat Cats Card Corner, one I have made very simplistic and one is definitely over the top!!!!

The first one I have kept very simple

I have mounted the cross on sapphire blue foil card, and then mounted that on the Bradshaw Couture Creations Embossing folder. This too is mounted on more of the sapphire blue foil card.  Finally I finished it off with some tiny wee sapphire gems and some peel craft words for the sentiment.  

The second is completely the other end of the spectrum!

This one I cut the cross out in gold foil card and threaded some cream lace on both axis and popped a pearl in the middle.  
This is mounted on the Marianne Creatables floral Circle die 129.  I have mounted this out on some foam pads.  The paper in the background is a Anna Griffin designer paper, with a piece of cream lace.  The flowers are made with the Cheery Lynn Build a flower #2 die set, in some cream pearlised paper, with the Nellie Snellen stamen punch in gold and a pearl in the middle.  The leaves are the Marianne Creatables Anja leaves 1 die.  Finally the sentiment is done of the computer and mounted on some gold foil card, then some flourishes done with tiny pearls.

Merry Christmas Songbook

I can't believe how fast the last month has gone, and how long it has taken me to get back to my blog.  It has been crazy!  Anyway, I finally made it, so thought I would put a Christmas Card I have just made.  Another one for Fat Cats Card Corner.

I have used the Marianne Creatables Open Book die which I printed on the music for We wish you a Merry Christmas, and the Sentiment.  I have mounted in on the Crafts Concept Fancy Frame Embossing folder.  Behind that I have used some Christmas patterned paper.  I smudged a bit of gold ink pad on the page edges, to highlight the embossed pages.  

The Roses I used the Cherry Lynn Build a flower #2 and also the leaves, It is very easy to make really lovely Roses with these petal shapes.
