I have some new cards to share with you, that I made for Kaaren at Fat Cats Card Corner.

I used the entire Sue Wilson - Swiss collection - Background to create the embossed background.
The Marianne Collectable COL1411 Doggy was cut and coloured and raised up with dimensional tape.
Flowers - Sue Wilson Christmas Rose.
Sentiment - Cheery Lynn
Wink of Stella added to the fur on his outfit

I used the tutti Designs - Frilly flower Frame I cut the die twice in white card and coloured one set of the flowers and layered them on top. I added some ribbon and flat backed pearls from my stash.

 I have used the tutti Designs Bird Tapestry Die as well as the Tim Holtz piercing ruler and some ribbon and flat backed pearls from my stash.
Sentiment is from the Impression Obsession die set.
I cut the die once in white card then cut it again in thicker white card to give it a bit of dimension.

Kaaren from Fat Cats Card Corner sent me this lovely Dee's Distinctively Bella die to play with,
she's an outline die and oh so pretty.

For my first card I cut the die from white card stock and stuck it onto black, colouring only her lips with a red copic.
The flowers I made using the Cottage Cutz 3D Flower 4 and I made them by wetting them and then holding each petal over something round and pinching them together with my fingernails, waited for them to dry then opened them out a little and curved the petals by folding over something round, some gentle cupping to the centres and then layering two of them together offsetting the petals.
The leaves are Sue Wilson Faux Quilled Leaves and the embossing folder is Delicate Hearts.

For this card I cut Bella from an eggplant colour and stuck it onto white, (even though it looks like a pale grey here, it was a terrible overcast,wet and cold day) then coloured the flower in her hair with copics.
The flowers on this one is the Sue Wilson -  Festive Collection - Christmas Rose,
After cutting them out I left them in the dies and coloured them with copics.
On both cards I used dimensional tape to stick down the Bella layer.

Tipsy Tumbler Quilt

 This quilt pattern is called the Tipsy Tumbler and its from Jenny Doan at The Missouri Star Quilt Company. 

I don't have the template required to make this block so I made one from cardboard and used it to trace around and then cutting with a rotary cutter and ruler.

I made the tumblers and sashings in white so that in can be used as signature quilt for a wedding or an engagement or perhaps even a graduation gift .

I have it for sale on Gumtree if anyone is interested.
Gumtree is an Australian online classifieds and community website.

A quilt for a friend

My friend Angie asked me to make her a quilt for her king single bed, she purchased the beautiful rose fabric and then gave me free reign to chose contrasting fabric and the quilt pattern.
 I needed to come up with a quilt block that didn't involve cutting the rose fabric too small, so started by cutting the roses at 8½ inches square and working my pattern from there.

Here it is on our queen sized bed with a matching cushion.

The backing fabric has light tan roses on a cream background.

Here it is on Angie's own bed.
