I made a few easel cards a while ago with the beautiful new Love Story papers from Trimcraft and this is the first one I'm sharing. The paper pads are available in 6x6, 8x8 and 12x12 and there are pages inside each which have several tag shapes. I've used two of these tage cut from the paper pad on the top of this card.
The white die cut behind the pink pearl is from the Trimcraft Borders, Frames and Buckles die set and the Just for You was cut with the Traditional Sentiment die set.
As usual I've added some Dovecraft Crystal Glitter Glue around the edges.
I'm about to clock off for the evening and have an early night- but just before I do I want to say a great big Thanks to everyone ( ladies and gentlemen!) who came along to my demo in Easons, O'Connell Street, Dublin today.
I've cobbled together some photos from today - not exactly who took some of them but I did pinch a couple from Ann Geraghty's FB page and one from Margaret Flattery!
Of course not everyone who came along is in the photos but it was lovely to see you nonetheless..Margaret and Mam, Karen, Dennis, Shirley, Paulette and the others whose names I didn't know.
Thanks to Catherine and Arlyn for the beautiful cards :)
As you know I'm pretty useless at taking photos of cards in shop light and some of the photos of the cards I made today weren't even worth posting here (photos I said, not cards!) so I left a couple out.
Lastly, for anyone who is asking, we managed to get out safely and away from the rumpus which broke out in O'Connell Street just as we were leaving.

Good morning :) This is another card I made with Trimcraft's new Love Story papers. I distressed around the edges of the paper and sponged with some Dovecraft Natural ink. I also cut the wood effect paper into short strips, sponged the edges with ink and attached to the card with 3D foam squares for a plank effect.
The lace ribbon, stick pin and paper roses are from the Santoro 2 collection (also by Trimcraft).
The sentiment is cut from one of the pages in the 12 x 12 paper pad
and I used a button from the First Editions Buttons dies at the top of the "wood".
I've added a fine line of Dovecraft Crystal Glitter Glue around the sentiment.
I'll be demoing the gorgeous new Love Story papers from Trimcraft - along with lots more - at Easons, O'Connell Street, Dublin on Feb 6th. ....that's next weekend! I hope some of you will be able to join me. Looking forward to seeing you there :)
Tonic Studios recently released a beautiful collection called "Reflections" consisting of dies, stamps and toppers all on the fairy theme. I've used the dies and papers along with some other Tonic products to create a "pop up" card - and you can see how I made it below.
I used these Tonic Studios supplies for the card...and also some A4 silver mirror card
How to make it:
1. Score and fold the front of the card in half.
2.Make 2 slits in the fold of the card at 5cm from the top and bottom. The slits should be 2.5cm long.
3. Push the part between the slits into the centre of the card and make the folds crisp with a bone folder.
4.Layer a 6.5cm x 14cm piece of pink floral paper from the Simply Nature paper pack onto a piece of 7cm x 14.5cm piece of silver mirror card and attach to the folded back front with double sided tape.
Layer a 11cm x 14cm piece of yellow spotty paper from the Simply Blooms paper pack onto a piece of 11.5cm x 14.5cm piece of silver mirror card and attach to the inside of the card with double sided tape.
5. Use the inner die from the Special Occasion die set to create a pattern around the sentiment topper from the pad.
6. Use the outer die to remove it from the paper.
7. Use the same outer die to cut a shape from silver mirror card.
8. Glue the sentiment topper onto the silver die cut and glue this to the "pop up" part inside the card.
9. Use the outer die from the Fay and May die set to cut out the Fay and May fairies from the pad.
10. Glue this topper to the front of the card - leaving a little over the edge.
11. Cut out 2 white corners with the Floral Fancy die set and glue these to the card - one on the fold back part and one on the yellow paper. Add gems.
