For You

Hi Bloggers.

Sorry I didn't get round to doing the draw for the Blog Candy yesterday. I've done it now and the winner is .................................

Patricia Howarth

Please email me at with your address and I'll pop your goodies in the post.
Here's today's card -

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Amazing Sentiments Clear Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using the smallest die in the Spellbinders Triple Floral Die Set. I added a 5mm White Pearl to the corners.

I cut the middle sized die from the Spellbinders Labels 46 Decorative Elements out of a paper from Phill Martin's Chic Floral 8 x 8 Paper Pad. There are little petals in the die cut that can be curled up - very pretty.

 I cut the largest die in the set out of Coconut White Card.

I cut the largest die in the Triple Floral Die set out of another paper in Phill's Paper Pad. At the emboss stage I added the next sized die down to give a pretty almost pierced border around the inside of the die cut. I added some 3mm White Pearls.

I cut the largest die out of the Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Die Set out of Coconut White Card adding an 8mm White Pearl to each corner.

I tied a knot in a piece of White Tulle, trimming the ends a little. I tied a bow using Off White Satin Ribbon. I also tied a bow out of some Peach/White Baker's Twine from the Pastel Set. I made a flower using Spellbinders Flower Play Die Set and the same papers I used before.

I made a couple of decorative stick pins using elements from the Creative Expressions range - the teardrop beads are Frosted Peach.

I'll be demonstrating Sue Wilson Dies on the Craft World Stand (B22) at the NEC tomorrow - please come and say hello if you're attending the show.

Thanks for stopping by.
