Happy Birthday to little boy

Hello everyone,

This time I prepared a birthday card for my neighbour from Poland for her little grandson.
I think that the sweet, little bird is suitable for children's cards.

The background paper is embossed.

This is a set of 8 dies that includes four layering pieces for a dimensional scene and four sets of accents (flowers, birds, wing and leaves).

First two layers, I offset them a little so that it would seem more delicate. I adhered them using 3D tape.

This is a set of three dies that include a beautiful scalloped valance element with its outline and a scalloped strip border.

I coloured them by watercolour pencil.

Supply List:

S5-388 - Layered Sweet Birdie Thanks Scene - Collection: Shadowbox
S4-985 - Vintage Starburst Valance and Gatefold - Collection: Shadowbox
S4-982 - Cinch and Go IV - Collection: Shadowbox
Embossing folder, paper: white, mirror gold, blue, watercolour pencils

Thank you for watching.

Easter Basket 2019

Hi everyone and Happy Easter!

I have something different for you today. Basket instead of the card :)

I made this using an amazing die from Vintage Treasures Collection.
Bella Luce Oval Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken is a set of five dies includes two intricate ovals which were used to create this basket.

I die cut the handle from a thick paper using a set of three dies that include a beautiful infinity link design with its two outer rim pieces.
The handle is decorated with handmade flowers from Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken. This is a set of three dies that includes four different size flowers, a centre and two leaf designs.

The bottom of the basket is made from the element that you can see below. In addition, I cut die a decorative pattern using S4-999 Infinity Link Border Etched Dies Vintage Treasures.

Thank you for stopping by 🌸❤

Amazing Paper Grace April Die of the Month Blog Hop

This Elegant Swivel & Sashay Card Die Set is absolutely amazing. We have so many combinations and possibilities to create something wonderful. The words we can use alone or with a background. That makes an additional effect. Flowers and leaves are my favourites. They are so cute.
And finally, the swivel mechanism inside the card makes it unique.

If you want to find out more about the Club - prices, how you sign up and what's included,
please look --------> HERE.
If you missed the introduction and want to know more about what inspired the Die of the Month Club,
 look ------->HERE.

I wanted to create something different so I decided to make a card in a vintage style.
My first step is the selection of the paper. I took a regular card base and I scored it to the size that will be a card base for the biggest die cut from the set.
Firstly I started to create inside. I chose a delicate green paper with roses in the corner. I decorated it with a script stamp and little flowers.
In the middle, I put a swivel mechanism decorated with some pictures and a frame from the set of the Die of the Month.
In the front of the card, I used the words "Hello Friends" with a background. I added lace and beautiful, handmade flowers. The leaves were die cut using the leaf dies included in this set.

My second card for today:

My second card is very simple. Just one side card with a cream background. I added decorative elements on the edge of the card. In the middle, I put a "window" using a 3D tape. On the top, I decorated my project with a bow and flower. At the bottom, I put a gold sentiment on the same background as a card.

Supply List:

Stamps: Script Background Stamp
Paper: Shabby Chic Paper Pad, 6x6 brown card base, gold mirror paper
Ink: Distress Ink Vintage Photo
Accessories: Amazing Paper Grace April Die of the Month, a sizal, laser cut chipboard, lace, pearls, ribbon

Introducing Vintage Treasures Blog Hop

We are so tickled today to be introducing  Vintage Treasures. You'll find a collection chalked full of classics!!  As always, there is a rectangle, oval, square and circle that will work well with everything in your stash and are perfect for layering. Next are several embellishment sets.  As you hop through all the links in the blog hop, you'll see all the new dies and how we used them.

Inspiration for Vintage Treasures

There is a special place in our hearts for those things kept in a hope chest.  Other than a promise of the future, they symbolize things of value and keepsakes that bring back treasured memories.  I delved there to find memories, filigree jewelry and keepsakes of old.  From long-forgotten turn of the century jewelry to the edgings on an old tattered handkerchief, I love bringing the past into the present in a style that is ....well, timeless.  These things -- bejeweled lockets, a sweet tiara and vintage adornments from long ago -- provided the sweet inspiration and restoration of some lovely, lovely Vintage Treasures.

The physical dies in this collection have an extra measure of flexibility and function.  Most templates have an outer rim, and inlay and an inner rim that you can use for your sentiment.

My Project For Today:

I'm tickled to introduce an adorable set of dies S4-990 Bella Luce Oval Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken.
I think that the oval frame is magnificent and so elegant. Marvellous outer rim makes the card luxuriant and exceptional.

I used gold and delicate pink papers as a background. An oval pattern I cut from a gold paper. In the middle, I put the smaller oval floral background and two layers of the outer rim. To add dimension I used a 3D tape for each element. 

I decorated my card with handmade flowers using an adorable set of dies Spellbinders S4-995 Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken.

Here is what the plates actually look like:

My second card is made using Spellbinders S5-393 Tiffany lavaliere Etched Dies Vinatge Treasures by Becca Feeken.

Here we have so many combinations of background and layers.
I used light green and creme colours with extra gold. I decorated this card with handmade flowers using the smallest dies of Spellbinder S4-995 Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vinatge Treasures by Becca Feeken. Tinny flowers are so cute. I added some pearls too and word "Thank You".


These plates are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–> HERE
