Hello Deer-ling

Hello my blogging family and friends, I hope you are having a GRAND day.

I have the second of my two Marianne Collectibles die cards to show you today. They are such fun to make and then its a question of making a card background for them!

This die set is the two little deer or more accurately I suppose two little fawns!

Here's my card:

I think this card is so sweet. I used a mixture of Heartfelt Creations dies and stamps, the sentiment I created on my computer and printed it out! All the details will be in the ingredients below. The pale green cardstock is from American Crafts. I cut out the oval using a Spellbinders Grand Ovals die.

They look so adorable, I made them and had them sitting on my crafting table for ages - they were my crafty playmates, then I just had to make them into a card! I added glossy accents to their noses and fawn spots.

The flowers are from Heartfelt Creations - Delightful Daisies, I firstly heat embossed the stamps with white embossing powder then coloured them using daubers, memento inks and a dove blending pen. The leaves I coloured with Distress Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive ink pads. There are also some Sue Wilson leaves added too. I added prills to the flower centers using dries clear glue from Cosmic Shimmer.

The little button in the corners are a combination of Enamel Stickers from Francheville (a Spotlight purchase) and Bo Bunny Double Dot Emerald Jewels.

Here's the ingredients that I used to make this card:

Thanks for stopping by to read today's post - hope the rest of your day goes really well.

Goin' Bananas - Birthday Card

Hi there!
A quick card today and a fun one too!

Here it is:

Got myself a new Marianne Collectibles die and thought I'd have a play!

I uses American crafts white cardstock as my card base. I used some Washi tape that I had in my stash and some Little B Decorative Foil tape (3mm x 10m Red, Black and Gold squares).

So Cute and easy to make - just used up my brown scraps and I do mean scraps!

Nice to have the two monkeys and doing different things - often you only get the one die.

I made the sentiment on my computer and cut it our using the Sue Wilson Grace die from the Frames and Tags Collection.

.... and that's it. Here's what I used .....

 Thanks for stopping by and having a look at todays' post - short and sweet!

A Magic Slider Card

Hi, I hope your day is going REALLY well! I have been playing with "Slider" cards and today's card is another example of one of these cards. I saw Christina Griffiths demoing this on YouTube and thought 'd have a go too.

Here's the video that caught my eye:

If you cannot see this copy and paste the following into your browser and that should do the trick!

So here's my version of this type of card!

I used Kaisercraft Grape weave cardstock for my card base, American Crafts white cardstock, clear acetate and a Jet Black Stazon ink pad.

The stamp is an old Flourishes image, sadly they are no longer in business. However, the artist Marcella Hawley has her own business called "Poppy Power" and the link in the ingredients to the stamps I am using is her variation of this stamp. You can also see it >>>> HERE.

The flower is Tattered Blossoms from Heartfelt Creations with glitter added.

The flourishes are from Arianna Blooms Lace die from Heartfelt Creations as well.

The ivy is a Sue Wilson die from the Greek Collection.

The rest of my photos just show the slider in action..........

Just a little pull on the tag and the magic starts to happen!
By The Way the white "Film Strip" on the side of the card is an old white peel off that I have had in my stash for ages.

I used a Fiskars one inch punch to make the tabs and pull space. I used a yellow eyelet and an eyelet setting tool so the ribbon could be added.

A little bit more and the flowers come into bloom. I coloured the images using a variety of Copics.


Here's how I decorated the back of the card. The sentiment is from JustRite Stamps, the cardstock is from a Kasiercraft "Sweet Treats" 12 x 12 paper pad and finally the punch used on the back panel of the card is from Martha Stewart.

Here are the main ingredients that I used to make this card:

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. Why not have a go at making one yourself? It's interactive and always generates a "Wow' response from the recipient!
