A Birds Eye View

Happy Saturday!

This Bloomville Paper by Mintay is amazing. I did a lot of fussy cutting and used pop up tape to create a 3D effect.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy 70th Birthday

Hello Everyone,

I was asked to make a 70th Birthday card.  I chose the Pion Design New Beginnings collection of papers, they are beautiful and co-ordinate perfectly.  I added a tag to the top centre that pulls out with Birthday text and tied with a wax cord.

Taking centre stage is a Laserowe Navy  Chipboard and I cut a clock out of Where the Roses Grows paper.

Below is a Laserowe Box, which complimented the card perfectly and I left it naked.

All the flowers are handmade using Foamiran and Lady E Dies, listed below.

Hope you like it :)

Friendship in a window

Hello everyone and welcome to another week. Today I have created a different type of card for you. I have created some foamiran flowers with the lovely Lade E dies :)

This is a farewell card for a dear friend of mine who is also a work colleague. I wanted to create something to show her that friendship lasts forever.

All things I have used are in the shop links to them are at the end of the post.

I have backed up the window die with the lovely Pion Design images with lovely quotes and pictures...this says 'friends are the sunshine of life'. You get different images or quotes and they are perfect to use for different ocassions.

Not sure if you spotted the lovely hyacinth flowers we have in the shop but I felt it matched this lovely Pion design paper to a tee so I used one today on my project.

I have sprayed the white foamiran flowers with the glitter mist spray and used white gesso on the window.

I have to admit that lilac/mauve/purple are my favourite colours so you will be seeing a lot of my creations with this colour.... hopefully you like it too

Easel cards with Mintay Life stories

Hello, I've created two easel cards using the Mintay's collection "Life stories".

I've made a masculine and a feminine easel with the patterned papers available in the collection
and also two matching envelopes.

The idea and envelop template I found here.
On the masculine card I added cut outs, a colored chipboard from Fantasy.
and a Tim Holtz wooden slice to hold the easel in place.

and this is the envelop:

For the feminine easel card I added fussy cuts from the Mintay papers.

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Henriƫtte.

Mintay Life Stories DL Cards

Hello, my dear crafty friends!

Elena is here again and this week I have made a layered project using mainly one of the most charming paper sets of Mintay, called ''Life Stories'' that you can find in our Crafteezee shop.

I also used some sheets of adorable Stamperia, ''Roses and Lace'' 12x12 paper pad that matched perfectly to the other chosen ones.

Each of these paper sets is totally unique and fit for any Mixed Media projects, scrapbooking or pretty simple cardmaking. 

So here is my DL card set included some cut outs, ripped lace and 3D paper flowers. A little bit crowded but very beautiful.

Thanks, for being here today with me!
See you next Tuesday.
Happy crafting!

Especially for you card

                 Hello crafty friends, I just wanted to share with you this beautiful simple card.

I started off by using Friday the thirteenth awakening green patterned paper, cutting a wave shape at the bottom. I then cut two different size strips of Pion new beginnings patterned paper distressing the edges slightly. Once glued into place I used my scrapman napkin die to cut three napkins from my pion papers glue together curling the edges to look like a large flower.

I then added my lace Gwendoline gluing to both sides of the large flower. I cut two of the flowers from the lace to glue in the centre finishing off with my lace frame no.6
