Dotty Invitation

Hi Creative lovelies,
Todays card is a take on the card in my last post where I used a 6x6 card blank but made it look bigger by going outside the card area using die cuts.

I've coloured Invitation Tilda using the no lines technique in black & white

The white vine flowers are Heartfelt Creations Open Vintage Floret Stamps, I stamped them onto vellum using versa mark ink and added white embossing powder.
The paper is papermania and the edges are inked with TH Distress Pumice stone ink
The die cuts are GoKreate Frilly Frame #7
Spellbinders Squares
Memory Box Spring Border and Pinwheel Posie.
Doo Hickey Swirl butterfly.
Other embellishments are
Papermania silver shimmer dome stickers
Pearl spray
Coloured pearls
Lace and ribbon
Paper flowers 
Jane's Choice-Black & White
Anything Goes

A 3D winter card

Good morning creative peeps,
Well its been awhile since my last post to be honest I just haven't been in the blogging mood and I don't know why!? I have been trying out a 3D paper piecing technique with my magnolia stamps and this is what the snowy Tilda came out like... 
I stamped Tilda on white card several times then coloured, cut out and embossed on the reverse of each little piece. Die cut a circle of kraft card and stamp Tilda on it, I used Pin flair glue to make them 3D.
I should warn you this technique is addictive!! Lol

The base is a Craftwork Cards 6x6 scalloped edge card blank. I have taken the matting and layering over the top of the fold so the card looks bigger than it is.
Paper is DCWV Linen Closet.
The die cuts are Doo Hickey Christmas Poinsettia and then embossed,
Memory Box Frostyville Border and Pinwheel Posie.
Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish.
Other embellishments are swirl stamp stamped with white acrylic paint
Papermania silver shimmer dome stickers
Pearl stickpin
Crystal droplets
I have added white paint here and there over the embellishments to give a distress look to the card.
Anything Goes
Christmas Bingo
(dry embossing, snowflake die cut, gems) 
Fleur's Choice - Distressing

(3D paper piecing)
Well that's all for now
Thanks for stopping by
