Simple Sunday...

Happy Sunday,

I had a Fab time yesterday with everyone at Pickwell farm and am looking forward to a return visit in August!  I will hopefully post some pics join Monday or Tuesday!

I am demoing at the Newbury papercraft show on the 4th July for the art of Craft.  For more details click HERE!

Today's card is a simple card made with one of Sues early release Striplet dies.

I simply cut the tethered hearts die centre in primrose card mounting onto a sheet of coconut white card covered in double sided adhesive.  Next I added diamond snow to add a little bit of shimmer.  I then cut the outline die from the tethered hearts striplet and foam mounted this over the top.

Finally I added a stamped sentiment from my Lotus elements clear stamp set and added a few stick on pearls and layers of the white and primrose.

This makes a great standby card for any occasion as the intricacy belies the simplicity of the card.

Ingredients:
CReative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson
Tethered Hearts Striplet
Primrose and Coconut white foundation card
Stick on pearls, white 5mm & 8mm

Enjoy...

  5. Hi John, lovely card today as always, I was actually looking at this die yesterday with my sister Rose. Lol
    Another to add to the ever growing must have list. Had to resist yesterday I had a rather large phone bill come in. Note to self check you don't go over your minutes on mobile as they then charge a fortune for anything over it.
    Result is now I text then others ring me back lol. Should have got unlimited calls I know.
    I've been asking my 4 daughters for money for my birthday so I can add to my dies and more of your stamps.

    Have a great day

    This Striplet has always made me think of something I can't quite put my finger on.
