A Party Without Cake Is Just A Meeting

Morning Everyone,

Today I'm sharing an Easel card made using the Dutch Doobadoo "Bulge" Stencil.  I'm loving the shaped cards using these stencils.

I have also used the Dutch Doobadoo Cake/Pie Stencil.  This literally took minutes and is such a good idea to pop a gift into.

The image is from the new Dollshouse release at Little Darlings Rubber Stamps called "It's a Celebration".

I used the new Spring Paper Pad, the papers are gorgeous and good quality too :)

I used the Party Stencil over a sheet of the Spring paper pad and added structure paste, I still really love this stuff.  
I then added the star border to the edge on the left and right hand side and again cut it out using the Spring papers.

I used the Dutch Doobadoo party balloons and added frantage and fragments for texture.  You can also the see Dutch Doobadoo paper art banner to the right and it is also on the left of the card too.

I used the new banner die and added the sentiment from the Sentiment set.

You can see the star border clearer here and also the paper art flags.

I used the butterfly border and cut the largest butterfly out and the added the largest butterfly from the butterfly die set of 2.

And here's the card open.  I have used my new favourite flower circle for the centre circle and added the "Let's party" sentiment to the left and the party hat to the right.  Under the circle towards the front I have again cut the star border.

The gorgeous lace is from The Ribbon Girl and don't forget The Ribbon Girl are sponsoring this month's challenge of Spring so not only could you win £20 to spend in the NoorDesignUK Store but there is also a chance to win £10 to spend in The Ribbon Girl Shop, so don't forget to enter.

And the cake box wouldn't be complete without some yummy goodies inside would it, alhtough they are nowhere to be seen now, lol.

Happy 80th Birthday

Morning Everyone,

Today at LLC Sandy is challenging us with cool/cold colours and as you are all probably aware blue is my favourite colour, although I seem to have done a lot of pink lately..... I must be ill, lol.

I have once again reached for the gorgeous Pion Design Paris Flea Market collection and the image is from the same collection, Elegant Ladies.

The shape was created using the Dutch Doobadoo Romantic Stencil, links below.

The beautiful lace is called Monique.

I have added 30mm wild rose with white berries and a poppy and die cut the Vintage Flourish latest release dies.

I have added a vintage metal frame and cut 80 out of the borders die sheet.

Here's the beautiful image.  I added a metal corner to the bottom of the image.  The image was layered onto the square filagree frame from the square and chandelier die set.

I cut the paris panel and added a hinge clip to the top.  I cut butterflies from the sheet and added a dashing of gesso.  A little heart clip was added to the right.

I added the butterfly border and used the butterfly 2 pcs die set to cut butterflies from the fabric paper and added a pen nib to the largest butterfly.

Have a good week.
