Gilded cage

These two cards were using the Crafty Individuals Die 'Gilded Cage' available at Fat Cats Card Corner.  

This first one is done with the Marianne Designable Cut and emboss folder number 908.
The gilded cage die, I have done in two colours the pink of the flowers and cage, and the green of the branch.  The cage I then put stickles on so that it was sparkly.  The pink flowers I have moulded slightly and put a gold bead in the middle then stuck it onto the flower on the branch.  The sentiment is done on the computer and then cut out with the centre tag in the Couture Creations Universal nesting Fleur de Frame and three tiny crystals.

This one I have cut the complete die with some gold mirror board, I also cut the aperture out of the front of the card, framed it with an oval of the same gold mirror board, and then some apricot designer paper also cut out with the oval, again mounted on the gold mirror board.  The bird is the Marianne Creatables Bird on a branch, done in a dark brown, with it's wing done in some cream glitter card.  Finally the sentiment is cut out with the Victorian rectangles Crafty too die.  Behind the aperture, I have mounted some tiny rosebud paper on the inside of the card, so it is seen through it.

Cut and Emboss Designables folder

I was asked to do some cards with the Marianne Designables Cut and Embossing folder Number 908, for Fat cats card corner

I have made one that is a general card, and a wedding card. 

This one I have backed the folder with turquoise and black.  The roses are the Royal Rose Die-namics die and the black leaves are done with two of the 3 leaves by Marianne Creatables.  Behind the turquoise and black part is the Cuttlebug embossing folder called Wicker Weave.

This one I have mounted the Emboss and Cut folder on silver (looks gold in the photo) mirror board, and this is mounted on the Brocade embossing folder by craft concepts.   

The flowers are made with the cherry blossom die by Cheery Lynn with pearls in the centre, I have used two different Marianne creatables dies for the leaves, 3 leaves and Anja leaves 1 dies, and then the corners of the Leane Creatief Nesting leaves frame die, for the rose type leaves.

Summer Fairy & Wee love you bunches

In the latest Australian Simply Cards magazine there was a very cute set of cling stamps 
as a free gift
 I have made 5 cards for little girls with them, trying different shaped cards and an idea I had seen using lace instead of ribbon for a bow, and one where the ribbon is ruched. The first three are with the Wee Love you bunches stamp.

This one I have cut out the shape of the card with the Silhouette Cameo with a nesting file that is available at Silhouette studio.  I have used a white and blue punched butterfly, a fabric flower and a brad in the centre and the lace in a bow with a pearl.

This one again is made with another nesting file from Silhouette Studio, and I have used a designer paper for the background.  The tag for the sentiment is also a cutting file.  Another couple of butterflies with the two tones of card to complete it.  

This one I have used a set of papers called Pretty please Spring papers which was also a free gift with a cardmaking magazine.  There is two different papers in strips at the back and a contrasting one I have used as a panel across the bottom.  Again I have used a couple of fabric flowers with a pearl brad in the middle, and some lace to trim the bottom border.  I have used a doily which is a cut file and the sentiment is one of the stamps from the stamp set.   

These two are with the other stamp called Summer Fairy
This Mauve one is made with three different mauve floral papers, I have used mauve and black card for the mountings, I have also used the black with the cuttlebug corner die.  Finally a strip of lace and the sentiment stamp from the stamp to finish it off.

The final one is my favourite, I have used gingham paper for the background, and another pink patterned paper on top of that, I have used a silhouette studio cutting file for the lacy border.  The flowers are the rolled royal rose die by die-namics, and the flourish die is fanciful flourish by Cheery Lynn.  Finally I have ruched the ribbon and popped a pearl on the centre of the bow.

White Roses Wedding Card

We have a nephew getting married next year, so while I was making some other cards, with these roses, I would make a card to put away until then.  

The embossed background is the Couture creations Romantic Creation this one called  Bradshaw, which I have mounted on some silver mirror card.

The roses I have made in 4  different sizes with vinca flower punches , the leaves are made with the Spellbinder Foliage leaves.  The silver sprigs are done with the Marianne Creatables 3 leaves dies.
