Gilded Lily Collection

Morning All!
On Friday I shared a card and gift box that I made using the fab Graphic 45 Gilded Lily papers and embellishments sent to me by the lovely gang at Jones Crafts. Today I thought I'd show you the other gift items I made to complete the set.

First up I made a couple of triangle gift boxes. These are really easy to make - here I made two base boxes from one piece of A4 card - and then you can decorate them however you like. I added lots of fussy cut elements from the papers.

I then made a large gift bag and used one of the images from the signature sheet to decorate the front, along with a chipboard tag, ribbon and glitter.

I think this would make the perfect gift set for a wedding couple  - pretty and elegant. Hope you like them!
Best wishes and bye for now

Celebrate in Style with Gilded Lily

Afternoon All!
Today I thought I'd share a card and mini gift box I made using Graphic 45's Gilded Lily collection sent to me by the lovely people at Jones Crafts.

This is a beautiful collection with really lovely imagery. First up I made the card, layering up the fussy cut images and adding a die cut greating at the top using one of the new Die'sire Sentiment Edgeable dies from Crafter's Companion which says 'Celebrate in Style'.

I then made a little box to match using my Ultimate Pro - it is just big enough to pop a gift card in and make it look a bit more fancy! I used a border punch to decorate the sides and along with the fussy cut elements I added liquid pearsl and a touch of glitter.
Hope you like today's projects. This really is a pretty collection of papers and embellishments, and makes creating elegant cards and gifts really easy!
Thanks for popping by!

Pretty Poppies

Afternoon Crafters!
Hope it is sunny where you are! Today I'd like to share one of the cards I made using Sheena Douglass's 'Poppy Stamps and dies'. I loved making this card and was chuffed to bits that it made the front cover of the latest Crafter's Companion Inspirations magazine.
I used Aquatints to create the background and paint the poppies, and also to stamp the poppy heads on the background using the gold Aquatint. 
I also added beads to the centre of the flowers to add dimension.

Hope you like it! I'll be back soon with more to share,
Best wishes
