Oh my, it's way too long since my last post was published.
It has been a whirl wind fortnight and a very emotional one at that....
...as a very wise lady once told me
"How can we ever appreciate the good times if hard times don't some times appear!!"
in the words of one of my favorite songs...
...What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!!...
To all the people out there having bad times at the moment the sunshine is just around the corner for us all!!
FCCB's new challenge
running from 0800 Monday 11th until 2400 Sunday 17th Feb
"Be My Valentine"
I have two cards to share this week, one each for my daughters to give to their partner's in crime, "sorry" loveeee!!
I have made the basic shape for both cards from the Wild Card Cartridge cutting the heart at 12" making a 6x6 card when folded.
Basil Basics card stock is available from Lynn at the Craft Den and fantastic for cutting with all the Cricut Machines.
The bugs are cut using Simply Charmed using scraps from the base card and some black and pink scraps from my leftovers box.
Super simples !!
I cut more hearts using the "liner" key in various sizes for the front, insert and heart on the front-they are easily re-sized by taking them down in the desired increments (the largest cuts the same size as the card blank when using the Cricut key which cuts each part in proportion to each other.)
I inked all the edges with Black Brilliance ink to make them pop.
Top Tip = Using the same card for the heart that is sticking out makes the inside look neater than if another colour is used.
I matted and layered the Tatty Ted stamped image for the second card, my younger daughter adores him but I struggled to colour him even with my promarkers, silver ink and clear embossing powder, so please don't look lol !! - It looks a little better in real life I hope.
To finish both cards I used Papermania heart gems, some huge gems picked up cheap cheap cheap from The Range and letters cut from Artiste.
Please come and join the FCCB DT and have a look at their fabulous creations, then make a project of your own so that we can come and share them with you.
