A musical note



Morning Peeps, we have a new Tattered Lace Eleganza Collection four day deal launching on Create and Craft today so I thought I would share a few more of my makes for the shows. Also my Penny Black DT piece which I should have posted yesterday but Blogger was having none of it, it took me hours to persuade him to allow me to do the post for the challenge blog so my own had to take a back seat.

My Penny Black card does actually have some Tattered Lace products so fits in with my post nicely. It's another of my fancy fold cards and you can find my tutorial here, I am secretly hoping that Stephanie will make this into one of the shaped card die sets..............now how easy that would make life. The background for the Poppies has been coloured with Brusho's and the DP's are G45 which I used to paper piece Penny Black 4373K Red Tango.....I know I always seem to do it in blue, not that it's planned that way. The border sown the side is TL Chantilly Swag and sentiments are from the Butterfly interchangeable embossing folder.


The card above using the Piaon and Dance dies was on the Tattered Lace blog yesterday so I won't go into all the details again as you can find them here.


There had to be some inkiness and after creating the background with acrylic pains I then make the dragonfies using the Eleganza Bow die, when I saw it I instantly saw dragonflies so it had to be done! When did I ever conform to the expected ? The sentiments was made from the letters that are part of the Shutter card set........and before anyone asks, there is a proper 'Y' in the set, mine just happened to disappear under the floorboards when I dropped the whole set, in fact I was lucky to only lose one. So I made a 'Y' by joining a couple of other letters, call it artistic licence.


And one final one is posted on the TL blog for today so you will find all details here. I have lots more to share using the Violin, Cherub, pillow boxes and much more, but will save those for another day.

Thanks for taking a peek and hope you get to see some of the shows and if you are after buying any of the dies that they last a bit longer than in recent shows.

  25. Gorgeous cards today Brenda. The new Tattered Lace dies are beautiful. I am just watching Nancy on Create and Craft and typing this so I won't be tempted to order the dies. I love the lacy effect of all Tattered Lace dies and the fact that they fall out of the dies so easily. The shaped cards are a feat on engineering and I agree a die would make it so simple.
    Enjoy the rest of your day
