Tattered Lace - Mini Tea Set

 Hello Everyone

I am back today with another two cards for Kaaren at FatCats Card Corner, they both feature the Tattered Lace Mini Tea Set Die set.

For this first one I started by creating the background  by using a die cut I cut from from Spellbinders Basic Lattice die and using it as a stencil and sponging with Dried Marigold Distress Ink.
I then cut a rectangle for my tray and using a circle punch punched out the notches for the trays handles then using my scissors distressed the edges.
The tea set doesn't come with saucers so I used the bottom of the tea pot as saucers.
I cut the middle out of the Marianne Craftable Circle die and slipped it in behind the corner of the tray.
The flowers I made with the smallest of the dies that come with the Marianne Craftable Circle die and the leaves are the Cottage Cutz Fall Vine Die.
Tea with Friends was done on my computer.

And playing with a feature in Paint Shop Pro X2

Card 2

I started this one by spritzing the background using the Perfect Airbrush Colour Spritzer and a copic marker.
I didn't add a backing to the beautiful  Tattered Lace Mini Tea set this time so all the background could show through.
I just drew some steam coming from the tea pots spout freehand and added the wording by hand as well.
The bow is Impression Obsession's small bow and the little eggs are from the cut outs of the bow.

And some more playing in Paint Shop Pro X2 using the Effects - Geometric - Spherize.

Thanks so much for stopping by I really appreciate you taking the time.

Hello Everyone.

I have a card to share today with an image from Saturated Canary, Krista draws the cutest images.

She is called kisses and I've coloured her with copics.
I made some Carnations (the red ones) with the Die-namics layered Rose die, I'll add the tutorial below.
The greenery is the Impression Obsession Grass and the Poppy stamps Gentle Leaf.

This is the die set I used, I used the smallest and the second smallest dies.
I don't know why some of the images are showing sideways

                    I missed a step here, glue the three or  four pinched pieces into the centre.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today.

Garden Bench

Hello Everyone

Today's share are two cards made for Kaaren at FatCats Card Corner.
They both feature the new  
Garden Bench Pop It Ups Die from Elizabeth Crafts Design.
You need some good sturdy card stock to make these, on this first one my card stock was a lot sturdier than the second as you can tell by the wonkiness of the bench.

I also used the Marianne Creatables Anja's Border LR0300 Die on both of them.
On the one above I used the Impression Obsession Grass and for the bulrushes I cut them from the Marianne Creatables Leaves 3 Die set.

The leaves for the flowers was the Poppy stamps Lovely Tendrils die.
The Best Wishes is by Cheery Lynn.

Also used for this card was the Impression Obsession Bare Tree (love this tree).

Card Closed.

I love that you have taken the time to visit and leave a comment, thank you.

Copy Cat Card

Hello All

This is a card I made a while back but wanted to share with you.
I received this beautiful card for my birthday last year from one of my aunts back in Holland and just loved it, and wanted to try and replicate it.

 This is my version, 
I inked a piece of white cardstock top and bottom, stamped added some stamping with a swirly wooden stamp that I've had for ages and not used very ,much.
The lovely lady image I found on the internet somewhere and layered her over one of my Venice photos using Paint Shop Pro.
The other three small images on the left hand side I also searched the internet for, some rolled roses using the Di-namics Royal rose die, a butterfly and flower embellishment from my stash.
The sentiment layer was cut freehand.

Thank you for stopping by today.
