Every year I make Meiflower some wedding invitation samples using her gems, pearls, ribbons and diamante embellishments, and I normally blog them much earlier in the year, but this year, even though the samples have been made for some months I am only just getting around to posting them.

Here I've used 25mm satin ribbon and a double heart diamante slider.
the silver glitter panel is actually wallpaper!

As well as a Sizzix heart die and LaLaLand crafts heart corner die I have once again used 25mm satin ribbondiamante heart buckles and stick on gems in varying sizes.

I will be back with more in a few days,

thanks for dropping in,

Die-cutting essentials Special edition 5

Today I have some cards I made for DCE special issue 5 (which came out last week) using the free dies that come with the magazine.


I used a large pearl from a mixed size pack for the large flower centre and smaller pearls for the other flowers, the butterfly has 2 black stick on gems for his body.


Once again the butterflies have gem bodies and I've used stick on gems for the flower centres


As well as gems on the butterfly I have dotted AB gems amongst the die-cut corners of the aperture.

Thanks for stopping by,
take care,
hugs,

Tonic Bookazine

I recently did a magazine commission which involved making some cards for the Tonic Bookazine which came into the shops last month, here I have a couple of the cards using the included kit and Meiflower stick on gems.

I die-cut the filigree panels and added pink and yellow gems to the centres of the flower.

I stamped the bunting, balloons and sentiment, drew in two curved lines, using a plate as a template, arrange the bunting across the lines and topped each one off with a matching coloured gem.

Thanks for dropping in,
take care,
