I am back

Hello all, I am so so sorry i've not been posting the past few weeks, but i've been 
busy getting my craft stash in order and it wasn't the easiest task I can tell do, but
I'm getting there and feel better that I'm finally getting organised. I am hoping that
I'll be back to my regular posts from now on.


Started with piece of A4 white card and cut this down using my guillotine to 26.6 x 
9.6cm and folded at the top with bone folder. Next cut a narrow strip of background
paper and adhered to the left hand side with double sided tape. Next I used the same
A4 white card and cut it slightly smaller than card blank and cut narrow strip of 
silver glitter card and adhered this to left the white card. Glued the sending sentiment 
with zig fine glue pen near the bottom of the card.    

Cut "Sending" on the Silhouette cameo using one of the fonts already using
Kraft card. Now I stamped "you my love" using WW clear stamps in Memento
Tuxedo black ink just below the sending. Cut a piece of EVA foam and adhered 
this with double sided tape and both sides.

Added a few sequins for that finished touch. It's took a bit to get back into my craft again,
after a little break but I'm hoping I'll be back on track from now on.

Heartfelt thanks | CB stamps

Hello there, I am back today to show you my latest creation that I made last week 
and thought you would love to see it. It's an ombre design again but this time it's 
done using the fabulous Spectrum noir alcohol marker pens.

First cut a piece of portofino white card down to 29.5 x 10 cm and folded with
bone folder at the top. Take another piece of the same portofino card slightly smaller 
than the card blank. Using chisel tip of the spectrum noir pens I created the ombre
effect using three colours from one colour family. Adhered the matt to card using
 double sided tape.

Using my cuttlebug and go kreate concentric circle large die, I cut circle with PC transfusion vellum, I cut thanks out on Silhouette Cameo using packaging from cardboard boxes and coloured in the thanks with BT4 then heat embossed the thanks using perfect medium and wow EP vanilla sparkle and heat set with heat tool.

Stamped heartfelt with memento tuxedo black ink on white card using CB mini messages set, then 
cut the sentiment down to narrow strip. 

Adhered the thanks to the vellum using zig fine glue pen and attached the vellum to card using
collall 3D glue gel (making sure I applied the glue so it was hidden out the away) adhered the
sentiment with the same collall glue gel. To finish I used Anita's 3D gloss gel to the back of each
sequin using tweezers and attached them onto the card.
