Black and Gold

Morning Folks!
How are we all today not too much snow and other awful weather where you are I hope? I woke up a few times last night with the wind - I felt like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz! LOL

As today is so awful I am going to try and sit at my craft desk all day long!
Let's see how that goes LOL

I have a card to share today that I made with my favorite - well defo 1 of my favorite Sara Signature collections, the gorgeous Black and Gold.
I used the gold mirror card with black matt card and I embossed them both with the regency swirl embossing folder.  I used the ribbon thread die, plain and scalloped circle dies and the black and gold foils and transfers.  I added some thin black ribbon and a gold heart charm also from the collection.

I hope you all have a fab day, and don't get too battered by the weather!
See you soon! x x x

Floral Garden

Morning my lovelies!

How are we all doing? 
I bet you cant believe it me, here again, twice in 1 day LOL but I am here again to share a card I have made with 1 of my most favorite dies with a Die;sire ribbon thread die.

I have used the Die'sire Floral Garden Create-a-card die.  I just love this.
I have used fresh white centura pearl white card to make the card blank.  I die cut the floral garden and ribbon thread die into the card.  I threaded light green ribbon and added a bow, then to the inside I added green glitter card from Sara Signature Flutterby Collection.  To finish I of course added lots of jewels!

I would love to enter my card into the following challenge:

Just for you

Morning Peeps!
How are we all today, don't worry I have scheduled this post I'm not really awake and up at this ungodly hour!! Especially on the last few days of my holidays!!!

I decided the other day it's been quite some time since I made an 8x8 card and that's what I wanted to make so off I went, and made this one!
Firstly I made the card blank with 2 sheets of ivory centura pearl and my score master board.  I trimmed it to size and used kraft card and shabby chic card.  I distressed the edges with scissors and then used gathered twigs distress ink.  I added lace and ribbon, and the lots of die cuts!  I used the floral oval die from Spellbinders with a scalloped and plain oval die.  I added a Die'sire Just for you words die cut.  And then added LOTS of pearls to the card. I added a bow to the ribbon and then added some die cut butterflies.  To the edge of the plain oval die and 
round some edges I added Mercury glass stickles. - Just to give a little shimmer!!

I'd love to enter my card into the following challenge

I hope you all have a FAB day - no idea what I'll get up to today, hopefully I'll be back soon to let you all know!!! TTFN for now!!! x x x x

Hey guys!
I have been making samples for Sara's shows on HSN and here is one I'd love to share with you.
I have used centura pearl card to make a 5x7 card blank.  Onto this I added red glitter card from the red luxury card stock pack.  I then added some centura pearl fresh white that I've embossed with the heart Gemini embossing folder.  I die cut a Die'sire heart die in the red glitter card and added this to the front of the card with 3D glue gel, I then added the Die'sire only words With Love die cut.  I cut the robbon thread die cut and threaded the ribbon to this and added to the front of the card.  TADA card is done!!

I  love red and white together - well red is my favorite color!!

Evening peeps!
How are we all today? I am half way through my holidays from work and I’m wanting another week as per normal LOL 

But as I’ve had some time off from work that means I can open some of the gorgeous Sara Signature Flutterby Collection. I bought nearly all of the collection at Craftaganza in November and most is still in unopened packets! Oops. 

But today I have made this card.
I have used centura pearl fresh white card, along with the gorgeous Sara Signature Flutterby glitter card and the Fluttering frame die.  I die cut the frame into the centrua pearl and then added the glitter card to the inside to show through.  I used the With Love die from the NEW Crafters Inspiration magazine and I added lots of blue jewels.

Simple but effective eh? Please excuse my very messy Spectrum Noir markers in the photo - since I've moved into my boyfriends I've still not organised them, were talking about moving again - I may get round to it then LOL!!

I am off to blog another card I have made and you should see this soon.
Thanks for visiting me and I hope you've all had a fab day!

See you soon!! x x x
