Thank You

Hello bloggers!  I have come to the very difficult decision to discontinue the Wednesday card giveaways every week.  It has become less and less popular as reflected by the comments left and it requires me to enlist the help of fellow Creative Expressions coworkers to send out the cards when I am not here.  Not to mention, the other demonstrators on our team like to use the cards for their shows so giving them away sometimes poses an issue for them.  I promise I will continue to do giveaways from time to time, but they will not be on a weekly basis, I do hope everyone understands!  For today's card, I started by cutting the Diamond Squares Background once then extending it to make a rectangular background.  I backed it with black card,  Next I cut the Ivy Garden Background circular die and inked it with Princess Pink Chalk Cloud before removing it from the die.  I backed it with black as well.  I cut a Double Pierced Noble Circle out of black and added it with foam around the Ivy circle die cur.  I cut two of the Floral Melody Corner in white and nipped away a few of the flowers to make them a tad smaller, then added in the larger flower and two smaller flowers behind it in the matching pink.  I mounted them along the sides of the circle with foam. I cut the Thank You mini expression out of white and black and shadowed it before gluing it in the centre of the circle.   I added a matching pink mat just along the top and bottom of the card.  White pink and black mats were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Colourful Spring Card



Hi bloggers!  I just love this bright springtime card and it is so easy to achieve too!  The best thing about it is that it only uses a single die set!

Thank You

Hello crafters!  I have a nice octagonal card for you for a Monday morning!  I started by cutting one of the rings of the Classic Adorned Octagons into white card.  I backed it with royal blue card.  I cut two of the Bella die in white and offset them and attached them to the centre.  I cut the Thank You mini expression in black and seated on a white octagon with a blue mat.  I used the Double Stitched Octagons to make a black and white multi- layered frame.  I attached it to a larger piece of white card and added three white pearls in the corners.    White, blue and black mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are
 7 1/2" x  7 1/.2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Happy Birthday

Good Sunday morning all!  Today's card is almost in the clean and simple realm as it is so quick and easy.  I started with a piece of coconut white card and embossed it with the Art Deco Shells embossing folder for texture.  I gave it a thin pink mat.  Next I cut two of the Floral Melody corners out of coconut white card.  I added the larger flower in straw yellow behind and then did the rose in a dusty rose colour and the two lilies in blush card.  I added the corners with mounting foam in opposite corners.  I cut the Happy Birthday mini expression die  twice out of dusty rose card and glued them in a diagonal fashion in the centre of the card.  White mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, D

Petal Pocket Flowers

Hello and welcome back!  This is our last post for this blog launch, but it is one of my absolute favourites!  Introducing the Petal Pocket Flowers to you!  Now when you see the actual die, you are certainly going to wonder what you are supposed to do with it (it looks like some sort of ninja throwing star!) LOL  The flower is so easy to assemble, you just need to fold on the fold lines and the flower forms itself, quick and easy! Watch the video on our YouTube channel and you will see how easy it is!  Ink the edges if you like, add the centre and you are done!  You just need to leave a comment one last time and wait for the drawing and winners to be posted on the 27th of April!  I hope you have all enjoyed this launch.  All for now, Sue x
