Ann's Paper Art

A new pattern from Ann's Paper Art the pattern number is a018.
I loved stitching this beautiful card and couldn't put it down until it was completed
I think it is one that every-one should add to their collection.
The stitching has been completed using 2 different coloured threads combining the colours to give a multi thread look. Threads are Mettler Polysheen 2830 (mauve) and 5822 (green) they match the Yvonne  Creations ( CD10188) decoupage perfectly.
The corner have been stitched using  Maderia Rayon 1033.
The decoupage is placed onto die cut which I cut out with my Nellie Snellen die MFD010 using Bazzill white dotted cardstock and the Milled Lavender Distress ink has been softly inked on the edges.
Joy Craft Decorative Pearls 6020/004 have been added around the edge.
The main cardstock used is Linnenart.

Birthday Card

I created this gorgeous birthday card for a lovely hobbyfriend by the name of Sylvia, from Ann's Paper Art Forum.
The lovely pattern is from Ann's Paper Art, a474. I am drawn to the circle patterns.
The swirl stitching has been completed in 2 colours, the purple and green have been combined to look like multi threads.
Using Couture Creation, Nesting Dies I have cut a circle from glitter card to fit into the centre.
The dies have a lovely embossed edge on them.
 Vivienne Butterfly by Memory Box was placed in the centre on the glitter card, along the thorax and ends of the end of the antenna's I have used Stickles.
Cherry Lynn Lace Corner Deco J, B175 have been used around the edge of the card.

Butterfly Birthday Card

Last week at Cardmaking Online I created a gorgeous card using All Of A Flutter embossing folder to create the base of my card.  I have used glamour gold  on the inside of the wings and the rest of the small butterfly has been lightly chalked in mauve. Three pink jewels have been added to the butterfly also.
I cut out a oval die  and placed a Happy Birthday peel off sticker in the centre.
 Using a small white card stock I placed a oval glitter sticker on top and using decoupage scissors cut around the outside, I then rubbed on the Joy Plum  transfer and attached to the card with small foam squares.
Around the outside of the card topper I have placed a peel off sticker.
The instructions for this card can be found at Cardmaking Online.

Friendship Card

I made this lovely Friendship card as part of a lottery game on Ann's Paper Art Forum.
Lucky for me Frances won it and loves purple and Pansies, so the card was perfect.
The pattern stitched is a441 and can be bought from Ann's Paper Art.
The Pansies are by Le Suh 777.400.
Once again I have used a gorgeous corner die by Cheery Lynn, Lace Corner Deco J, B175.
This die is perfect to go around the stitching.

Marianne Design Stencil with Lacé

Last week at Cardmaking Online I created a beautiful card using Marianne Design Star Stencil and a Lacé template.
The Marianne Design Star Stencil has been embossed, I also selected a lovely stitching design from the template, I have repeated the embossing and stitching around the Star stencil
The edges have been slightly distressed using Distress inks, before completing the stitching with a lovely selection of threads.
The Violet Diamond paper is patterned on both sides and is perfect for the Lacé die
I have edged the outside of the Violet Diamond paper with a sticker.
The card has been placed onto one of the new Joy stands.
