too darn cute

Hello all
welcome to my 2nd December post,
here I've used dies from the all of these collections
Couture Creations
Ultimate Crafts
Too Darn Cute Layout
From the Everyday Essentials, I cut 2 of the Classic Leaf in cardstock and the Edith butterfly form Edith and Baby, in patter paper covering it with glue, and topping with glitter
take the Flourish from Elegant Card Cuts, Mercato Flourish, this I have used as a leaf vine behind my flower

Secret Gardens Butterfly Flourish, is a lovely addition to my flourish cluster
Again from pattern paper, I cut one Invali Fancy Butterfly
Using one Camden Cottage Rose, spritz with colour, touch the edge of some of the petals, a brush and the spritz make the flower a little more interesting, then lightly sprayed with spray adhesive, and glitter sprinkled over that, shake off excess glitter, makes for a very nice ice flower
all your elements are now ready to put together, add a few other bits and piece, and your done, have a play with these dies, but most of all have fun with them

Chilling Out Hawaiian Style

Welcome to my first 2016 post,
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year,
and your ready for a whole new year of crafting,

Taking the Blue Eyed Daisy dies, I cut several of each size, then I inked the tips of each petal, some of the flowers i just tipped the petals up to the centre, the other flower I twisted each petal on a skewer, added a brad to the centre, and top of it I placed  2mm gemstones for a little bling


My clear flowers were created, with the Star Of Jasmine die, I cut these out of a coke bottle, inked the edges, and genterly heated them over a candle flame, till they started to curl

finished flower

Using Autumn Wreath, Lullabies, and Victoria, cutting them in half and layered them, to from a nice border along my photo

for something a little different, rub some of our lovely Pearl Drops in the corner, bhind the flower spray

Place all you ellements on your page, and have fun with it

Stay Safe and Enjoy Your Day
