Hi Everyone, Anita back with you on the blog today.
I hope everyone is pretty set for Christmas now. I was hoping to be but that hasn't happened. I have been holed up in my craft room creating gifts and cards for Christmas gifts.
Today's creations had me steered away from Christmas as I really wanted to use the new Ornamental Affair and On the Edge collections of dies. I have to say the ones I already have in my collection are gorgeous and I cannot wait to use more of them in upcoming projects.
Both cards are using colours of white, a very pale lilac and gold metallic cardstock.
After cutting out two of the Rosey Ferns Footer die from the On the Edge range of dies, you just see how gorgeous these dies are. And they cut so beautifully, like all the other dies in any of the other collections.
I cut my card base in Snow White Ultimate Crafts cardstock to approximately 5.75" so that the two die cuts beautifully bordered the card base. I lightly inked the edge of the card base with a matching lilac ink.
I have yet to get my hands on some of the Die Cut N Bond from Ultimate Crafts for adhering the delicate dies to other cardstock, so I used my Turbo Precision Glue Pen to adhere the diecuts to my card base.
Next I took some of the purple pigment powders and mixed it up with some water before colouring up one of the Cottage Pollen flowers
I wanted a really nice mat to put my sentiment on so I raided my Ooh La La dies and found the middle size of the Nesting Labels Set the perfect size to cut out in the Snow White cardstock.
During construction I liked the idea of using some gold metallic twine behind the flower. I added a pop of more gold behind the big flower by using some of the Gold and Silver Bouquets from the Be Merry and Classic Christmas range.
To finish, I heat embossed my chipboard sentiment using the Mirror Gold embossing powder from the Classic Metallics range of Embossing Powder. I double embossed the chipboard to get a very very shiny finish and raised look to the chipboard.
Te second card of the set I went opposite in colours to the 1st card. I used the pale lilac behind the Snow White die and I left the flower totally white so it really jumped off the card.
On this card I used the Juniper Doily, it is such a pretty and delicate die.
