A Bit of all – white…..


Hello crafty people, I hope you have all had a good week and are enjoying the weekend!  This week my post was inspired by seeing a card by Maria Patrick on her blog – Maria’s Merry Makings. It was a white on white design with a pop of colour, really pretty.  Well, I really like tone-on-tone cards so I thought I would use my new Camellia die from Sue Wilson to put together this card. Mine has no splash of colour – just white Centura pearl card, but I’ve added some texture with the embossing folder in the background and also an Anna Griffin die on top of that. I have been after the camellia die for a while but it always seemed to be out of stock so when I found it was available I had to get it!  It’s designed by Sue Wilson at Creative Expressions and it’s great because it includes 31 dies – flowers and leaves in different sizes.  Sure makes it easier when you want to do a cascade of flowers – you can run them through all at the same time :-).  I stuck the bow on but then changed my mind but couldn’t prise it off!  I would have liked to have used seam binding instead but didn’t have any white left! Anyway, here it is and I’ll say ‘cheerio’ until next week – take care, Karen 🙂

I used… Centura white pearl card, Tattered Lace Butterfly and Lattice Embossing Folders, Anna Griffin, Spellbinder and Creative Expressions Finishing Touches Camellia Dies, Lace and a Clearly Besotted Sentiment stamp.

(Please excuse the photo’s – I’m struggling a bit with this part of blogging! An expert photographer I am not!  Hopefully I’ll get better with practice!)

  2. This is beautiful! The texture is just lovely. Now I have to go back and check out Maria’s. I missed it. Your photos are great. My tip (to everyone) is use a photo editing software after. You may already. Photobucket and PicMonkey both work for me. My photos always need to be cropped and straightened a bit.
