Hello Love: 
This time I used a different sized card I really love tall cards! For this card I used all leftover bids and pieces paper by Maja Design. I just layered on piece of paper on off white card stock and then build my card with borders dies and the new flowers feathers and text dies.
I wanted to let the border dies look like ribbon/lace on my card. In the centers of my flowers and for the body of the butterfly I used some hot glue and mini prills to accent them. At the end I stamped the word "LOVE"on my card a couple of times using my 49 and Market stamps designed by Georgie Connelly

  Oh I have to say I really like how the word hello is written in this die pack hopefully there will be more words like this in the near future. I also sprayed some white & shimmer ink on my flower cluster to make it sparkly.

Life is Good Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Good morning everyone,
It's my turn again on this lovely blog and today I'd like to show you another card I created with some amazing dies. It's a black & white shaker card and I not only added shaker pieces but also cut out gears. I also made some fun flower sprays on this card they are so much fun to make hopefully I get the time to show you how I made them soon.

Life is Good: 

Since I make many layouts I also have a bunch of leftover papers this card was also made with leftovers. First I layered a piece of black with white dots paper on my 15,5 by 15.5 cm base card what is made with just white thick card stock.



 Then I cut out of the leftover white card stock my frame then I took another pieces of the same dotted paper of 14,5 by 14,5 to cut out a part that is just a little smaller then the frame so I could stick my lattice frame on the back of that particular piece.  



Then I added my shaker pieces like the metal daisies shaker parts, mini art stones, gears and beads to fill up my card! On the phrase I made some stripes on the outer sides of the letters to make it pop up a little more that is what I also did with the outside of the card.

Cozy Winter Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Happy New Year to you all, I really hope the year started well for you. For today I'd like to show you a wintery card I made with all lovely dies by the most amazing die company there is in this craft industry Cheery Lynn Designs. The papers I used are by Maja Design. As you may know I love making wintery layouts & cards because I can use some pretty snow effect paste and lot's of glitter.....got to love glitter right?

Cozy Winter: 

On my card I also did some mixed media used some sprays, paste and stamps!
I really like how the B837 - Holly Leaf {set of 4} lent's itself to only use parts of that die to add to another dies like I did here with the B481 - Joy to the World Wreath.



Sorry for the bad picture we have some nasty weather in my part of the world so making good pictures is very hard. 
The flowers I made are very easy but take a bunch of time to make but I always make them watching TV because that is very relaxing for me....hihi

Season's Greetings Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Merry Christmas Everyone, 
I want to wish every follower on my blog a wonderful Christmas & a fantastic New year! Enjoy the time spend together with your loved ones.   
 For today I made a 10 minute Christmas card with non traditional Christmas colors. 
I can't believe 2016 is almost coming to an end, me for instance can't wait to start 2017 with all the new adventures on it's way. 

Season's Greetings: 

I just took out all my doily dies and picked out a golden oldie. The pretty Celtic Fire die I cut this die out of white card stock and placed it on a black background then I made some pink flowers to add on my card. I also added some pink and black treat to make a little bow. And on the Pierced Banners I stuck a word sticker saying to complete my card.

This Day Mixed Media Layout for ***The Dusty Attic***

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Today it's me Amy here with you to share a mixed media layout using the gorgeous December mood board as my inspiration! I am a hugh fan of the color purple but I don't use it very often because I think it's a very hard color to scrap but it goes lovely with the colors grey and white. 
So on my layout you will find some touches of purple, I really love that quote so I have used that with a picture of hubby and I! Lets'take a look at the December mood board: 


This Day: 
I started with a sheet of the pretty "Cotton Candy" collection by 7 Dots Studio that I primed with clear gesso. Then I used a couple of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, background stamps, art stones large/tiny and past to compliment my layout. I see myself as a starter creating these kind of layouts because for me it feels a layout is done when I stitched on it in any way so this way it feels unfinished! Is that something I only think?? Or do you have the same thing with something you didn't add on your works??

The beautiful chipboard pieces are gessod with black gesso accept for the two corner pieces those are primed with white gesso and later on I used some dark purple Lindy's powder on them. I had so much fun creating this layout and let me tell you I had trouble cleaning my hands to get to work at my day job hihi got to love that!

Lately I am hooked on using straws {don't know where that comes from it must be a phase I am going through} Do you ever use them??? The flowers on my layout are by several companies and I added some purple mica powder and white gesso on top of them to give them some sparkle.
At the end I added some diamond gems and two metal hearts.
