1st Striplet card

Hi everyone.
Today's card is made using the new Sue Wilson striplet die just love it! I used an A5 blank card  cut the striplet design into it. Then I put a teal coloured piece of paper from my stash behind it. I added some bling. Using SB D-Lites Frame One I stamped and cut the sentiment. Then using paper roses from my stash and leaves from Tattered Lace I finished the card front. Inside I matted and layered matching coloured paper. ( you can't see it in this picture but the next picture you can just about make this out.
Thanks for looking. Please leave me a comment so I know you stopped by.
Hugs Sue xx

Another quilted card

Hi everyone.
This is another card using the quilting technique. This time I just cut the squares and arranged them on a backing card then embossed them using the tumbling hearts embossing folder. I then matted it onto mirror card then onto another white card. I added a border using SB border die and also the sentiment using peel offs onto another SB die. That's all for now thanks for stopping by

Quilted Card

Hello everyone thanks for visiting. This card is made using Sue Wilson's quilted card tutorial and SB Damask Motives Die. I was really pleased with how this turned out. It was a bit time consuming but worth it in the end.

Morning all you lovely people. I didn't realise this blogging business would be so exciting. I find myself keep checking my blog pages to see if anyone has visited and left me a message lol! I would like to thank John next Door and Mrs Duck for putting my link on their pages so I have had a few more visitors. I have yet to work out how to add    links and things but think I'll get there as only been doing this for a couple of weeks.
Today's card was made using a CD but for the life of me can't remember which one as I have loads. I find myself collecting everything to do with crafting and putting it to one side for future use I have sooo much stuff it drives my husband mad. He's a tidy freak and I, I'm afraid am not! I must admit it is getting a little out of hand as I now cannot get into my "craft room" to use it and have spilled out big time into the dining room. I keep promising him I will get cleared up but at the moment my eldest son has moved back in with us as he is unwell and he takes up a lot of my time. He has been with us since September but is getting better and has started to go back to his flat for weekends to see how he copes on his own and so far so good! Anyhow, sorry got carried away there, once I have the second bedroom back I will be able to sort out the craft room and get the rest of my 'stuff ' back in there and get the dining room table back ( or so he thinks lol).
This card was made a while ago that's why I can't remember. I now realise I will have to make a note of what was used as well as remembering to photograph what I make.
Well that's all for now thanks for stopping by and see you again soon hopefully.
