Legends of the Sea

Hello Everyone,

Tracy here sharing a card made with the awesome Pion Design release "Legends of the Sea".  This collection is great for male and female as well as all those summer nautical cards and scrapbook memory pages.

I have cut out the mermaid from the      sheet and positiioned her next to the text cut out from the tags sheet.  I added a little chunky white frantage and layered onto Pion Design Palette Brown

I added a Foamiran Flower with vintage matt stamens in blue lagoon and light grey as well as a button Alexis, seasheels and the fab anchors that we have in store.  To finish a vintage seam binding bow and some Scrapiniec leaves and a dashing of gesso.

I have added some double row pearl string.

In the below picture I cut out one of the borders, love these.

I used a Fantasy die with hexagons on the top left cut with the Pion Design Palette Brown

There's still time to win this collection.  Head over to the Facebook page :)

Hugs Tracy x

Hello Everyone,

Did you all get your Making Cards magazines.  If you did you would have this card and a step by step tutorial on how to make one of the Foamiran Flowers.  :)

The Beautiful papers by from Pion Design's "The Songbird's Secret", all links as usual at the bottom of the post.

I didn't want to cover up the beautiful bird image.  The memories sentiment was cut from Pion Design Mr Tom's 

Below is a close up of the flowers. The leaves were cut by hand and the texture createed using the Moulds, also linked below.

I added some Scrapiniec Meheni Laces.

Hope you like it :)

Back to Vintage

Hello everyone,

I have made a vintage card for my Sister's birthday tomorrow, she loves vintage and circular cards so this will be perfect for her.  She also likes green :)  The image was cut from Pion Design's Grandma's Attic Bouquet image sheet.  The papers used are also from Pion Design 6x6 With all my Love from the Where are the Roses Collection and Pendants 6x6 from Pion Design's The Songbird's Secret.  The Butterflies and text were cut from the Borders sheet from Where are the Roses collection.

I have used the new Lace Irene and added a Wycinanika Back to Vintage Chipboard border.

I made a couple of Foamiran flowers and added to a chrysanthemum from the Spring and Summer flower packs.  Finished with some 1.5mm pearl spring and diecut trailing leaves in Pion Design Green I.

Look at the fab shape of this card, isn't it elegant.  I used the NEW LDRS Grace Build a Card Die Set.  It's fabulous, I used the largesgt die for the base and the second one for the inner panel and then used the second largest as a stencil to make the third layer.  It comes with lots of other elements as shown below and I will be reaching for this set again and again.

Hope you like it.
