Hi guys, I thought I'd show you today a card I made for my Sister and Brother-In-Laws Wedding Anniversary,

I used the gorgeous Pion papers - The Songbirds Secret for my layers simply distressing the edges with a distress tool, or you can of course use scissors,
I wanted my chipboard Birdcage by Laserowe Love to be slightly raised from the base of the card, so I added some 3D pads behind and on the top used a metal embellishment as it's hanger, to this I simply added a self adhesive pearl  

On the left hand side I added some simple foamiran flowers made with one the Gummiapan 5 flower dies and some white stamens,

To finish off the card I used some of the Laser Owe Love chipboard bricks in a couple of places too,
Then a Gummiapan rounded hearts die which I cut out of card stock twice for each one so they gave a 3D effect too, I then used one of the Pion papers I used on the base of my card to tie it in,

For The Occasion

Hi guys, I thought I'd show you a Foamiran Hair accessory I made using a hair clip and 0.6  Foamiran in white and  pale pink with leaves done in 0.6 olive green Foamiran,

My Grand daughter wanted to model this for me, lol
I made several different sizes of roses from buds to more open flowers,

As you can see, I used some of the white and pink Foamiran together for a different look to the flowers, I hand cut the leaves and used a little oil pastel on the edges too,
I then fixed these onto a clear comb and added some crystal beads here and there too,

New baby tag card

Hi guys, I thought I'd show you a tag card I've made recently for a New baby girl using some of my handmade Foamiran flowers using the fabulous Lady E dies Tiny flowers and Flowers 001 for the larger flowers which I used at the top,

I used white 0.6 and pale pink foamiran then coloured the petal edges with some oil pastels, 
I cut my tag out with a Gummiapan tag die from Swedish house crafts, then again using papers, I layered up my Maja Design papers adding a little lace, a die from a previous Magnolia Magazine for the doily, then a cute Scrapiniec chipboard baby onto which I added some glitter,

I wanted my flowers to be one layer design to fit in with the tag size, this meant I could layer up a few together,

Then the bottom flowers were made using one of the Tiny Flower dies, as you can see they mix and match perfectly, I will be making  more variety of flowers using these fabulous dies but I'm short of time at the moment,
You can buy the fantastic flowers dies here

Music Is Good For The Soul

Hi guys, I recently received the Magnolia DooHickey Box Vol 19 from 
This magazine is based on a music theme,
Using the largest die in the Magazine I made a Grand Piano,

I die cut the shape once out of the card stock I wanted to use, then cut the keys part out of a piece of white then black card stock, these I placed every other colour to get the look,

Taking the main die cut I cut another one out of the main card stock but I placed the die with the keyboard section hanging off the card stock, so it was just the top section which was cut out and so that the top section could be opened up, I achieved this by making a hinge out of Card stock by cutting a strip of card stock then scored it in the middle which I then glued one half underneath the top on the left hand side and the other on the base of the piano

I wanted the Piano to be a stand alone project, so I made a mock box section underneath then glued some pearl string around some of the edges,
I added some music die cuts which came with the magazine for on the top of the lid then used some leaf die cuts  from my stash  on the front edge,

I handmade some Foamiran flowers for inside the Piano with another couple of the leaf die cuts,

I made this type of flower using the 5 flower dies by Gummiapan, (not included in the Magazine)
