Vintage Lace Birthday Card

I have spent most of today up in my shed… crafting away whilst keeping in mind the UIU Pledge (Use It Up) 🙂

I bought sheets of chipboard months and months ago and i’ve not been using it as much as I should, so I cut up one of the big sheets today to a standard size card proportion and gave them all a coat of white acrylic paint, with a view to making the easel type cards that I love so much 🙂

I made 2 valentines cards, then my hubby asked me to make him a card for his mum’s birthday, which is tomorrow..

This is what I came up with… I had been previously working on the material panel, so I used this up and adhered it to the front of the card..

Supplies List :-

  • Chipboard
  • White Acrylic Paint
  • Frayed Burlap Distress ink
  • Chipboard Heart
  • Clear Embossing Powder and Heat Gun
  • 15mm Foundation Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Light Pink Seam Binding from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Purple Trim
  • 10mm Pink Rose Leaves

Thanks so much for dropping in 🙂

Fragment of Love

Wishing you all a very Happy, Healthy and Crafty New Year 🙂

I hope you all had a wonderful time…. Things are kinda getting back to normal here, We finally got our Gas Central Heating repaired, after going through Christmas and New Year with nothing but my workshop heater!..

Well, the heater is now back where it belongs, in my workshop, and today I headed up there to make something, I must have sat for well over an hour just staring at all my crafting things wondering what I was going to make, and ended up making a start to a mini album, I have the chipboard outer cover done and I also made this Fragment Charm out of one of the Tim Holtz Fragments, this will eventually end up dangling off the mini once I finish it 🙂

I couldn’t quite make up my mind, do you think it looks better photographed on a white background or the black background?

Supplies List :~

  • Tim Holtz Fragment Charm
  • Ranger Glossy Accents
  • Prima Flights of Fancy Patterned Paper
  • Woodware Heart Punch
  • Donna Salazar Crafty Chronicles Newspaper for the letters “l o v  & e”
  • Wild Orchid Crafts 10mm Pink Foundation Rose
