Die-sire Flower Die Table Decoration

Hi there crafters
when we got asked to do these samples our Lovely Louise Welsh who has the job of controlling
well trying…. LOL to keep the DT in check…..
let your imagination run wild …
So i did here….. is a modern table decoration
using centura pearl card and the Sun Flower Quilling Dies
from Crafters Companion

i made the cone from the 16x16 snow white centura pearl card
draped that in black tulle then set about cutting the  large and small Sun Flowers leaves and swirls with my eBosser
after assembling the flowers i attached everything  with Collall 3Dgel
finally adding the  strips of crystal gems  that i had in my stash for years and never used them
made a few tulle bows to place behind the main flowers
i truly enjoyed making this it’s great fun and so easy if you have the Dies

Die-sire Flower die Card

Hi there everyone
this really is a simple card to make using the New Die-sire Flower range

I used large Sunflower die to make
a Gerbera
I rolled a centre in same colour card then added 3 strips of petals 
simply matted onto a pre embossed panel in snow white centrua pearl card with a strip of same coloured core-dination as the flower stamped the sentiment with versa fine ink
with a touch of class glitter in middle of the flower and dew drops to finish off
this Die is so versatile if you curled the petals upwards it could also be a Chrysanthemum or a Dahlia

Victorian Bonnet

  just finished  this Bonnet
thought i would share with you made from card 
 i was going to cover it with fabric …..but fell out with that idea  far too fiddly ….so thinking cap went on !


set too painting it with my Black Fusion Paint  when that had dried
i gave it  a good blast on inside and out
with the Crafters Companion spray and shine 
that didn't take long  to dry so i could then set to decorating
with lace ribbon roses  feather and a few crystal gems thank god for Collall 3d gel  lol

Swalk with H2o’s

Hi there crafters
you might already know that there is a new set of Stamps coming soon the Swalk  Range
Launching this Friday over on Create and Craft  New Pick of the week
the great news is that there will also be 3 Swalk CDs on the show
and one of those is Digital images  so get out your Spectrum Noirs
included in the show will also be H2’Os so i thought
i would make a card using both my pens and paints


it’s very hard to get the right light to show the pearlized effect you get with H20’s
i have coloured her dress  and bow in with the paints the rest is coloured with Spectrum Noir pens
onto Neenah card 
if your using Neenah to paint with your H20’s  be careful not to get your card too wet or it will start to buckle
and don’t use your pens over the H20’s as you will pick up the H20colour on your  pen nib
not a good idea
thanks for popping by today

Sun Flower Die Lantern and card

Good morning everyone
  thank goodness for my eBosser
would never had time to cut all these flowers with out it..

I used the large sunflower and small sun flower with the swirly leaf die
and a spellbinder leaf die from my stash


once you get the hang of quilling the flowers  the possibilities are endless
they make a lovely focal point on any project for each large sunflower i cut 2 small petal strips and 2 large petal strips
if you want a smaller flower use less strips of petals
thank you for popping by today
