Crafty Fun ♥︎

Hello, my sparkly friends! Happy weekend.♥️I'm fluttering in to share a wee bit more of my recent work for Crafter's Companion! I've been having so much fun in my crafty space.

My first few cards feature the new Split Invitation Dies. The detailing in the dies is exquisite!
I used the lovely Opulent Henna die to create a fancy edged card, blossoming in hope. The gorgeous patterned papers, ribbon, and peachy pearls are from a recent CC subscription box. The shiny peach paper is from the Parisian Luxury Pearl Card collection. The flower is (another!) Layered Peony, this time sprinkled with mini prills. There are endless options with the split dies and I am eager to play with them again.
This is the stunning Elegant Swirls die, which I used to make an invitation card. The bottom die has been cut out with the optional flap dies to create a pocket, while the top sweetly folds down as a closure. I used gorgeous pink paper is Parisian Luxury Pearl Card so it is beautifully shimmery. For my 'closure' I centered a lace die with a lovely heart charm from the Paris collection.
For this card I nestled part of the Elegant Swirls die within a Biarritz Heart Frame, which is inked up in Pink Tulip and Pale Fig Harmony Inks. Truly there is no end in beautiful ways to use these dies. The whimsical patterned papers are from a CC subscription box, while the purple is from their pearlescent collection. The butterfly is from the Flutterby Create-a-Card set. The sweet little sentiment is from the Peony Collection.
Lastly, I had another play with one of the new 3D embossing folders! This is Decorative Foliage, which I have showcased using a technique I learned from the fabulous Jennifer McGuire. I taped around the edge of a white piece of yardstick to make a frame, inked up the center with Straw Bale, Oasis, and Parakeet Harmony Inks, and then embossed it with what has become my favorite folder! 

To keep the focus on the embossing, I simply added layers of luxury cardstock behind it and topped it with a double lace bow. The sentiment is from the Vintage Chic stamp set, which is stamped upon circles from the Ornate Circles Accordian die. I love the beauty that can come from even the simplest of techniques.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day!♥️

Sweet Inspirations

Hello, sweet friends! I'm fluttering in to share a few of my favorite samples from the Crafter's Companion shows on HSN yesterday. It is pure joy designing for them and I'm certain you will love their new goodies as much as I do.♥️
Two sets of Silhouette Animal Dies are part of the release, which I adore! (Be still my animal-loving heart!) I created a tent fold for the precious kitty, adorned with goodies from the Peony Collection
The sweet Silhouette Puppy, cut out in the loveliest metallic cardstock, is celebrating in the same Peony collections. Pretty Vintage Lace and a sweet banner add to the festivities. The sentiment is from the Mix and Match Birthday collection.
I couldn't resist creating a Christmas card with the Silhouette Stag. The papers and sentiment are from the signature Winter Wonderland range, one of my festive favorites.
Also part of this launch is a new collection of 3D embossing folders. Truly there are no words to express how much I treasure Sara's embossing folders! My background embossed design is the new Ornate Flourish, while my sentiment is from Set 3 of the new Sentiment embossing folders. Both were inked up with CC's spectacular Metallic Waxes. They are creamy, dreamy, and completely inspiring. 

My layering throughout my cards is once again with luxury cardstock. I better order more soon because I cannot imagine being without. ;)

Thank you for visiting and I will you a beautiful day.♥️
