Wedgewood Heirloom Legacy
Well the colour of this card really reminds me of Wedgewood pottery, gorgeous colour.
The die is Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy, I simply cut it twice, I was thinking of one of Sue's buckle cards, but it really didn't turn out like that, I cut the second die cut in half and trimmed the top and bottom fancy bits off, I laid these two halves back to back on top of the first die cut and stuck them with Cosmic Shimmer Glue, I stuck this to a piece of blue cardstock. I cut the centre part of the die set and turned it sideways and used it to thread a piece of the blue cardstock through like a buckle, I had previously stamped the 'sending wishes your way' 'on your special day' on each end of the card strip, passed it through the buckle and fixed it at the back with foam tape. I covered the back of the blue card with foam tape and matted it onto white, then blue and then onto a white card base.
I tied two bows with white silky crush ribbon from Creative Expressions, one slightly bigger than the other, layered them up and fixed them together with a pearl brad, I stuck this onto the card with Pinflair Glue Gel, added three little roses, two stick pins and a few pearls. I got the inspiration from a Spellbinders blog.
I am trying to look back at the some of the many dies I have had for a few years but never really use, it seems a shame, so I will be using some in the coming weeks, make them earn their keep!
It was lovely to hear from you all over past few days, I love reading your comments.
Hazel, I am so pleased Calum enjoyed his sleepover, your tray bake sounded yummy and a good way to get rid of all those Christmas choccies, we have quite a few left too, so I may borrow your idea.
I hope you had a lovely day with your granddaughters today and their parents of course, I wish I lived close enough to pop to my mums for sunday lunch.
Well everybody's bits and pieces are ready for school and work tomorrow, I will have a wee lie in and then get up and start trying to get the house back to normal, can't do too much but I will make a start, its amazing how everything ends up cluttered in the lounge and dining room, instead of the girls bedrooms, but that's kids for you. Hugs Hazel xxx
Steph, I am sorry, I forget to mention that Bella is our little kitty, she is ten months old, bless her she has really been suffering with 'lady problems' since New Years eve, but she is starting to calm down now, we will get her spayed on Tuesday then she will have to suffer no more!
I have had a look on google and I have the Serif Craft Artist programmes too, but I really am rubbish at technology Steph, I can turn it on but cant do much else, I rely on Paul to take and upload the photos of my cards and then I can add them to my blog. Anyway I had nothing that matched up to Sand or Ice Sculpture so will just go traditional, she said she liked the style of one I did a while back so will go similar.
How did you get on with your adventure with the double-sided sticky sheet?!!!! Hugs Steph xxx
Mrs B, I am so looking forward to Wednesday, wherever we meet, if Bella has her op tomorrow we may have to be at mine so I can watch her, but I am ringing vet tomorrow to try an change appointment as Paul is going away so won't be able to take her or collect her! I will let you know later today, Hugs xxxx
Pam, thanks for visiting my blog, I am so glad I found yours, thanks for the lovely comment too, xx
Brenda, thanks for the lovely advice yesterday, I usually have a tv on wherever I am for background noise, Did John get your boxes out, Ours are all in the hall way, ready for me to pack up and then Paul will return them to the loft, he was stuck up their today as Bella and Milo followed him up the ladder and sat at the top, preventing him from getting down, do you think they would listen to him?!
I was almost crying with laughter listening from my craft room, hugs Brenda xxx
Barbiepinkfairy, Have you noticed that Anna Marie Design has a sale on 30% across the site! hugs xx
Pat, did you spend much a Yarnton (not in the Craft shop) obviously! We keep our Snowman in a mattress topper box, its a perfect fit! Looking forward to Wednesday, hugs xxx
Margaret, Thanks for the heads up on Lily of the Valley, will go and have a look, although I did spend £58 on Anna Marie design goodies! but its good to stock up in the sales right?!!!! that's what I will tell him anyway! haha, Crafty hugs, xxx
Theresa, thanks for stopping by and for the lovely comment, hugs xxxx
Lynda, Thank you for the lovely comment yesterday, give Bambi & Annie cuddles right back from Bella and Milo, she is a lot calmer today, I think the worst is over, thank heavens! I am going to try and keep busy while Paul is away, think it seems worse as he has just been home for two weeks, along with the girls, but I will be ok, I will use the time to try and get some cards made for the blog, just out of interest how many cards do you make in one sitting? it takes me longer to decide what to use than anything else! huge hugs Lynda xxx
Well Ladies, I must go and get organised, craft room is a tip already!
Oh by the way, check out Klassy Kards, I ordered some 'Sue' dies from them and they were 50p cheaper than Icon! p & p free in UK, minimum spend £5 (or they add £1.50) admin fee! But I saved a couple of pounds, every little helps.
