Miss Molly's tea parties

A very small card inspired by the Kitchy Kitchen stickers from Melissa Frances.
Tiny little circle dies from spellbinders are used to make these tissue paper flowers that are sprayed with Glimmer Mist. I used an acetate frame which came as a free gift in a crafting magazine.
The paper is also from Melissa Frances Kitchy Kitchen collection and I stamped the little teacup and saucer on the paper to paper piece the whole image from Crafty Secrets. It is a stamp from the Tea with Alice collection. Some Distress Paint around the sticker that has been mounted on 3D foam.
The flowers look purple in the picture, but are actually more of a deep red and match the red cherries on the paper. Funny what pictures can do. The card is only 4x4 inch and is a perfect size for using small card toppers or stickers.

Another year older?

Dust it off, suck it up, press on.
Sometimes you don't want to hear that your getting a day older, but it just so happens.
Here is an easel card to congratulate you on your birthday. Older or not, you still look fab, so enjoy what is still to come.
The paper is from Papermania Rose Garden on Bazill Basics cardstock folded into an easel card. The little doily is sprayed in 3 shades of Glimmer Mist to match the paper. The stamps are from a collection from Crafty Secrets Domestic Godess. The flower is made of tissue paper with a sparkly We R Memory Keepers brad in the middle. The border is cut with a lattice die from Spellbinders and the corners are made with the same set.

White poinsettia card

Almost the end of September and I have hardly posted any of my cards. I best hurry now.
This is a Christmas card made with the Spellbinders poinsettia die and iridescent gold Glimmer Mist. I used October Afternoon papers and a little bit of Bazill cardstock with a border sticker.
I used Tim Holtz Kraft card pad to make the card. The only negative being that the kraft card quality does not allow neat scoring. It starts to look like material.
The sentiment is from Crafty Secrets held down with Making Memories square brads. At the center of the poinsettia sits a lovely Melissa Frances pearl. All dies used are from Spellbinders.

Websters Pages Thank You card

One of the prettiest papers that I know of are Websters Pages papers and I buy the 6x6 packs.
My card is made with some of these papers.
A background stamp from Hero Arts has been embossed in white embossing powder and then sprayed in red Glimmer Mist.
The roses are from Spellbinders and have a Melissa Frances pearl in the middle. The leave are also Spellbinders and embossed in pearlescent cardstock. The black leaves and swirls are from Magnolia. The sentiment stamp and swirl is from Crafty Secrets.
This patterned paper is perfect for creating sentiments inside the card.

Tilda with flag

Summer is almost gone and autumn is on the way. The days are getting shorter, so lets throw in another sunny card.
Bazill Basics yellow cardstock and My Mind's Eye papers for the base and backgrounds.
 Little Tilda is coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils in colours to match the papers. The doily is sprayed with Lemon Zest and Bronze Glimmer Mist.
Tim Holz kraft cardstock to make the Tim Holz paper rosettes with a metallic sticker from Paperchase in the centers. The sentiment is from Crafty Secrets and stamped on a Marianne design tag.
Simple, but lovely card with enough sun in and on it. Happy day!

There is no place like home

Love Graphic45 paper? I do.
I have made a set of different cards using the Magic of Oz papers.
So if you want to bear with me, here comes the first one.
I have cut out 4 different images after colouring them with pencils. The sentiment has been stamped on white cardstock and cut it out with an oval Nestie. Tim Holz kraft cardstock is used for the background and leaves. The flowers are made with circle dies from tissue paper and coloured with Glimmer Mist spray. I just love these sprays and they work really well with the tissue paper.


Here is a Christmas card that I would like to share with you.
It makes a difference to make winter greeting cards in summer. I quite like doing this. I have a whole lot of inspiration, but just not time enough to craft.
Cosmo Cricket papers from the Tea for Two collection seem quite a nice fit for a Christmas card.
The little stamped image is from a Crafty Secrets and coloured with pencils, some glamour dust adds a bit of sparkle to the snowy landscape and Glimmer Mist pearl spray adds extra shimmer to the snowflakes and the background paper.
The card is made from Bazill Basics cardstock.I decorated the interior of the cardstock with more paper by Cosmo Cricket and a matching tag from the same collection with some metallic round stickers from Paperchase.
