Apple Blossom summer special

I made some cards for the Apple Blossom summer special using the kit that came free with the magazine which included stamps, dies and papers amongst other things.

These two were both finished off with different sized Meiflower stick on gems.

Simply cards and Papercrafts

Here are a couple of cards made for Simply cards and Papercraft which arrived in the shops on 13th July. I got to play with some Kate Hadfield digi stamps and I also made some matching papers which you can download for free from HERE.

I have used grosgrain ribbon and the bunting is hanging from Meiflower waxed cord.

The gorgeous purple satin ribbon and matching purple gems are also from Meiflower.

Wedding Invitation samples 4

Here are the last two wedding invitation samples I did for Meiflower.

For this one I cut the filigree design on my Silhouette machine from white card, then added embossed Lilac Centura pearl panels top and bottom using the Cuttlebug D'vine swirls embossing folder. I added lilac stick on gems in various sizes to the flower centres, a pair of diamante wedding rings to the heart and a crystal diamante square to the bow.

The background on this one is a Nitwits paper from my scrap box, the tag was made with JoyCrafts labels and tags 6002/0144 using Centura pink pearl card for the background. the 25mm ribbon and double D diamante buckles are from Meiflower.

That's it for the wedding invitation samples for this year.

Wedding invitation samples 3

A couple more of the wedding invitation samples I did for Meiflower. I did 8 in total so only 2 more to post after these.

I used 25mm satin ribbon under the lace which I bought locally, and the matching 10mm over, I also mounted the pearl flower embellishment over the lace diamante buckle to make a combined topper.

For this one I cut the filigree heart from the kraft card before layering over cream card, the die is from the Forever in my Heart signature collection at Crafters Companion. I think the burlap and lace ribbon was from Home Bargains, as usual the satin ribbon and diamante heart embellishment are from Meiflower.

Wedding invitation samples 2

A couple more of the samples I did for Meiflower.

This is a very simple design with plenty of space above and below to add names, dates etc.
The paper is from Nitwits, but not sure which collection as it was in my scrap box.
25mm satin ribbon and square diamante topper are both from Meiflower

Hearts were cut with a Sizzix heart die, the cerise heart was then embossed, the 4mm satin ribbon, barbie pink gems and tiny circle buckle are all from Meiflower.

Take care,

Wedding samples 2017

Every year I make Meiflower some wedding invitation samples using her gems, pearls, ribbons and diamante embellishments, and I normally blog them much earlier in the year, but this year, even though the samples have been made for some months I am only just getting around to posting them.

Here I've used 25mm satin ribbon and a double heart diamante slider.
the silver glitter panel is actually wallpaper!

As well as a Sizzix heart die and LaLaLand crafts heart corner die I have once again used 25mm satin ribbondiamante heart buckles and stick on gems in varying sizes.

I will be back with more in a few days,
