Retirement

Dear Crafters,

Well, my in-laws arrived yesterday (and no it’s not a bad thing, lol, I get along very well with them. She is also a SU demo!). But I had to wait until now to share this little creation with you, as my Mother-in-law has retired after many, many years being a Business Manager in a school in her country Victorian town. I needed something different and saw something similar but there were no instructions, so it took ages to cut and score and put together!!!!

Anyway, here it is!

Can you tell it is a teapot? I sure hope so. My Mother-in-law loves her cups of tea, so what better type of card to make for her.

I am not entirely happy with the spout, as it was a bit tricky!

I have used Primrose Petals (retired) card stock and stamped Everything Eleanor with Soft Suede ink.

I used the Ovals Framelits to create the handle!

Then for the big reveal, when you open it up, you see this!

The Whisper White card is embossed the new Spring Flowers TIEF which will be available during Sale-a-bration, starting 6th January 2015. I have left one side blank, as that is where I will attach the written message (that you don’t really need to see).

I used the Spiral Flower Original die in Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple (r) card stock. The leaves are die cut using the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die with Garden Green card stock.

What do you think of this interesting creation? Something different, but I certainly wouldn’t be making loads of these, just for very special occasions and I think Retirement is certainly one of those!

Have a wonderful Christmas day tomorrow and a safe and healthy 2015!

Hexagon Flower Frenzy

Hello Crafters,

What a glorious Melbourne Cup Weekend we have had and so today I share something that is just as colourful and floral!

Hexagon Flower Frenzy

This is my first time using the Hexagon Hive Thinlit and I wanted it to be a darker, dull shade so that the colour of the DSP behind really pops!

The DSP is from the pack called Confetti Celebration. It has such bright and beautiful colours in it, including Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Tangelo Twist and Whisper White.

As you can see I have used Pistachio Pudding card for the leaves and the flowers are Crushed Curry, Strawberry Slush and the Silver Glitter paper!

Hexagon Flower Frenzy

I sponged the edges of each of the die cut images with the coordinating inks.

This background puts a smile on my face, it is just so bright and cheery and brings loads of dimension to this card.
