Trumpet Vine

Hi Everybody,

This pretty die is from Memory Box and is called Trumpet Vine.

It is a sample that I made for  Craft Stash  and I have cut the vine in pink card and added pink pearls to the flower centres

It has then been added to the top of some embossed parchment  which I stamped with the verse before embossing.

I have added my glue so that it is positioned under the ribbon and the die cut shape so that it wont show trough the parchment

The satin ribbon is from Mei Flower  and the centre to the bow is from Wild Orchid Crafts

The gingham card is from AnnaMarie Designs   and the plain pink card has been embossed with an A4 folder

All have been layered with foam pads to give dimension to the card.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  7. Christina, I was one of the lucky ones to be picked to go to the Create and Craft studios yesterday. I took my Daughter and she loved it. The presenters came and chatted several times during the day. We had our moment of 'Fame' during the 1' clock live show. Treated like Royalty and came home with Four bags of goodies. Dave and Andy kept coming back to chat, The two lovely presenters from Tattered lace started our first crafting session, sorry have forgotten their names. Dawn took our last crafting session, She is so down to earth and lovely too. Really good with my daughter,who was so nervous.Debbie and Martyn came to say hello just before their 1 o' clock show. A perfect day..xxx

  14. Hi, Christina,
    What a beautiful card and I see the die is on special offer right now...looks like it may just accidentally fall into my basket lol. I really do need to get some parchment as I've never worked with it before but keep seeing what wonderful effects achieved by using it. Thanks for sharing.

  21. A beautiful card - I have a couple of memory box dies but not that one so maybe I will do as Bejay intends to do! Had a short break in BLACKPOOL last week- looked out for you but no luck! However we went to The cafe on the front of the pier at St Anne's and met our friends who own it. Its a great place for coffee or a meal if ever you are in the area. the reviews on trip adviser say it all! Good luck on C&C xx
