i treasure you

this gold and black card is from sue Wilson's original
I have made a smaller embellishment for postal reasons!
a lovely way to use sue's 'to die for' stamp and embossing folder, together with the new gilding waxes.

never ending story

these 2 cards are based on sue wilsons recent design
her original was in the blue and black but i made a rose pink and burgundy one also.
i really love these new border dies, and the oval has so much detail in it.

laugh more & worry less

this gold and pink delight is another of sue wilson's designs
i used a paler background and vintage floret flowers stamped with the same gold embossing powder used in the rest of the design, with a cheery lynne ivy corner flourish

Best wishes

I am posting from my phone because my laptop is not well for a few days!
These 2 cards are designs by sue Wilson that I have replicated. 
The flowers are vintage floret with silver embossing powder. 
The centre of the filigree delight shape is stamped with the new cathedral lace die (Sam Poole shop) and buffed with pewter gilding wax.

to a beautiful you

2 cards with different sentiments from an original design by sue wilson
i love the window die from spellbinders with the heartfelt matching stamps
in my versions i have used the grand squares as layers
i read a great tip for more detailed embossing on detailed dies -- use a ball head embossing tool when the shape is still in the die.  it worked a dream on the tags!

special day

my obsession with the designs by debbie at paperpastimes continues!
again using white pearl card from anne marie designs
the flowers are from my stash of tiny white roses edged with a little cosmic shimmer gilding wax, the dove is from the new tattered lace collection and the swirl is by cheery lynne

because of you i am a better person

another card inspired by debbie from paperpastimes
i just had to get hold of this lattice die
it is made by spellbinders for 'our daily bread' and it is quite stunning.
i used the grand labels dies for layers using the pearl card from anne marie designs
i just got hold of creative expressions large sizes micro beads which i coloured with alcohol inks to use as the flower centre to match the blue background
the sentiment is from justrite ornate happiness squares, where you can mix the words to make your own phrase.
