enjoy your day

sue Wilson's original design used a more blue card; mine is nearer teal coloured but it matches the colouring of the flowers. 
I used spectrum noir markers to colour the stamped image, then used my new silhouette portrait machine to cut around the image.  I hand cut a second stamping of the flower heads and layered them on top for dimension.
the background is one of new new favourite stamps - the justrite iron swirls embossed in white on white card.

simply fabulous

aqua and white card for this sue Wilson design
I just got the new petals dies by sue and love the way they layer on top of each other.  lots of possibilities with these.

sweet dreams

a lovely sue Wilson design showing how to cut the frame die to shorten it
I added some extra bling with a wink of stellar pen over the stamped butterfly image
my silhouette cameo machine has arrived and I have been playing with it!!  it will take time to master it but it is great fun!

let it snow

another gorgeous sue Wilson xmas design
I kinda made up my own 'technique' to do this as sue hasn't blogged it yet - just a photo.
I cut the snow die and stuck it onto a piece of double sided adhesive sheet then covered the rest of the sheet with iced snow glitter.

sue Wilson shared a video showing how to make this card
I love everything about it!!  elegant and stylish.
it is white and silver although it looks slightly blue in the photo
in my version here I added an edging of glue and also dots of glue which I dusted with diamond sprinkles glitter
