BeYOUtiful Criss Cross

Oh man!  Have you seen the new BeYOUtiful digi kit at Nitwit Collections.  Mmmm totally delish and I think it should just be called the Bev digi kit cause it is just so very me lol.  You don’t have to be greedy like me and buy the bundled kit, it is also broken up into smaller kits.

So anyway, I thought these pretty papers were deserving of a criss cross card, and here it is

The insert is also from the kit, I just merged the scalloped circle digi with the patterned paper then typed a sentiment on using Brock Script

The top of the insert has been cut with a Marianne Design die, edges inked and embellished with a few little pearls.

A closer look at the delish flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used a Bead Flower, cottage rose, lilies and open roses in 20mm 10mm and 15mm.  I also made some little flowers using metal bead caps and glued a 12mm flat backed pearl in the centre.  I trimmed the bottom of the card with organza rose trimming.

That’s it from me today, I’ll be back Monday for the new Whimsy Stamps release hop (oh and Friday as well).  Have a fabulous weekend, the sun is shining up here in the frozen North!

Good for a hug

I had (another) tidy up in my craft room yesterday, okay not so much a tidy up but a sort out of my stamping cupboards.  I found a basket full of stamps the majority of have not seen ink, and I didn’t even know I had them!  Big blushes here haha.  So I quickly got bored with sorting out and decided to have a little play instead.  I used some of my new goodies that I picked up last weekend when I got my Ebosser (did I say I love this machine?!? No more cranking of handles and hurting my neck).

bev-rochester-good-for-a-hug-mf

The paper is from the C’est la vie pad by Melissa Frances, love these colours.  The wee corner is also a MF embellie, and I made the little locket and key using Martha Stewart clay and moulds then dirtied them up a bit with ink.  All the delish flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I used a trellis rose, 25mm wild rose, open roses in 20mm, 15mm and 10mm, sweetheart blossoms and a fabric daisy.  The leaves are die cut with a Cheery Lynn die.  The lace and seam binding (that also got the dirty treatment) is from WOC too.

My granddaughter had her 6th birthday party at Papercuts Whitley Bay on Saturday so, as you do, I had a browse and an Ebosser jumped into my basket (LOVE LOVE LOVE this machine!!!) and some Melissa Frances goodies (well they were half price!) and the new Papermania Eau de Nil paper pad, which I have used on this card.  Totally sublime!

bev-rochester-sugar-nellie-papermania2

The flowers, seam binding and heart rhinestone embellishment that I used in the centre of the bow are form Wild Orchid Crafts.  The flowers used are cottage rose, cherry blossoms, open roses in 20mm 15mm and lilies.

hugs
