Home Sweet Home and Vellum!

Hello friends
With all this talk about Christmas I thought I would feature something bright and summery today!
Another card created from the bonus papers given away with this month's
Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.
This time I chose to machine sew around the edge.  
I purchased a cheap little sewing machine that I use specifically for paper, 
I know if I had to keep getting out a big sewing machine I probably would think twice!
I've used Jewel Flowers and Flourishes (again!) but it does look different when you stencil through.
The tiny ladybird comes from the 99p store, a whole pack of them! 
I have some more dies on order for my Amazon Shop, I will list them the minute they arrive.
I've ordered Square Petal Top Box and various Christmas ones too...
here I go mentioning Christmas again!

I have also added very pretty vellum to my Kits and Bits,
it is A4 and 5 sheets are £2.85 including postage and packing.
Please drop me an email if you would like to purchase some or, if you prefer,
you can go over to the Kits and Bits page and click on the PayPal button.
The wonders of technology..that I'm finally getting to grips with!

This is the vellum I like to use for aperture cards, overlays, pretty backgrounds and, of course my flowers.

Have a great Thursday, I will be wearing my London working head today.
(By the way - no evidence of searching yesterday, so I'm not so sure my boys are reading my blog,
I could be really mean and post embarrassing baby pictures of them!)
Back tomorrow ...FDD!
Take care.

Hi Christine.
I really like this card and the ladybird.
I'm so pleased you have pretty vellum available to buy,I've been wanting to try your vellum Rose Creations flowers since you posted them weeks ago on Friday Die Day.
I also saw Sue using vellum to make a flower on C&C yesterday.

Hi Christine,
very lovely card today. Those ladybirds are so useful. I've had mine for quite a few years now. I don't think you could ever be mean. It's not in your nature.
Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Lovely card Christine, I really like stitching on cards, but have yet to give it a go. Perhaps I should look into one of the little sewing machines!
I too love using vellum on my cards, it's so versatile.
Your amazon shop is filling up nicely!

Sue Yorkshire said...

Lovely card Christine and your vellum flowers are gorgeous

I had a go at making flowers using the peony die with crepe paper. Its a bit thicker than tissue but crinkles beautifully and I likes the distress inks too

Hope it all goes well at work

What lovely bright colours Christine, it is really miserable here and these have definitely cheered up my day!! Must just must find my vellum and have a play. However I have been having more fun with my Fancy Lattice die today. I put some white card through the GC with the die twice and I have made two cards so far - with another piece left over - to be used asap!!!
