My papercraft and card making projects

heartfelt thanks

this is one of sue wilsons more recent designs
I used black and aqua coloured card
I love this justrite background stamp; stamping and embossing with white powder onto black card.
I am not very good at the pva dots technique but gave it a go on this one on the black border.  I tried using my piercing ruler to measure the spacing.  I made a small pinprick every fourth hole and used that to apply my black pva glue to.  I need more practice but it was acceptable!

just because

this is my take on a design on the justrite website
I coloured the image with my spectrum noir markers.  i'm especially pleased with the blended shading of the blue background.
I used a piece of heartfelt creations paper under the spellbinders cut out, and a spellbinders flower die as embellishment

special day

i've been wanting to reproduce this design from sue Wilson for a while now and finally got round to it!
it is a real stunner I think.
the only die cutting is the leafy embellishment, the rest is stamped from justrite stamps
I did use a circle die for the sentiment but just used a rotary cutter for the large gold circle as I don't have a die that size

wishing you ...

still on the early Christmas theme
I really like this sue Wilson design
I stamped a couple of the wreaths and coloured them with spectrum noir.  I snipped one of them apart to add some layers to the main wreath.
ive just managed to get hold of this spellbinders frame die [once upon a] and glad I did -- it is lovely and will be very useful.
