A few sneak peeks



Morning Peeps, it's a very wet and dreary start to the day here in the Fens and the forecast looks like more of the same, so one to stay indoors and keep warm I think.

I thought I would share a few more of my recent Tattered Lace samples which were on last Fridays shows on C&C, as many of you know the shutter cards were a sell out in less than an hour leaving limited products for the weekend. But I am told they will be back again very soon, I have to say these are a real favourite with me as you can make them in minutes, I have spent many hours over the years trying to make this shape a score board and a good number have ended up in the bin.

The pink Parisian inspired one was on the TL blog the other day so I won't bore you with the details as they are all here along with the product list.


On this one I used the layering templates which are all part of the Shutter card set and added liberal helpings of glitter. There is also a full alphabet in the set.

And here are a couple of sneak peeks of what will be coming up in next Monday programme ******amended, show has been brought forward to this Thursday 19th March****** for the four day deal, any ideas what they might be (not that there are any prizes mind you) ?

The one to the left was a little experiment using one of the dies to make something completely different, I know again, but that's the beauty of TL dies, there is so much more to them than what you see on first appearances. I even managed to get a bit inky with some acrylics and stencils as well.


Have a good week everyone.

The pink hearts card is a true wowser Brenda love everything about it especially the three hearts in the middle. The black and white shutter card is an eye catcher to say the least.

Completely amazing and I think you have just convinced me I "need" that die.... I think I have made about two of these in my life (I don't have the patience) but they are so effective and like this they could actually be fun. This sample is absolutely stunning with those gorgeous papers and that colour combo, - gorgeous!!

pinky said...

Love these cards Brenda but couldn't afford the dies this time round but maybe someday. Like you mine end in the bin more times, my head does not do measurements any more!! Your card is absolutely stunning, those hearts look so three d from here.

Leanne said...

Both beautiful cards. Glad to be blogging again.

Becca Cruger said...

Oh wow! There must have been so much time put into these amazing beauties! I love the versatility of the designs, too. The top one is so soft and feminine with it's romantic floralscape, while the bottom is much more masculine feeling. Super cool creations!

KandA said...

Wow, what fabulous cards and a super die - no wonder it sold out so quickly. Especially love the colours on the first and the lovely romantic feel to it. Hope the weather improved for you - it was supposed to be the same here today but it turned out rather nice for a change xx

Kari said...

Wonderful cards,Brenda!Beautiful papers and great fold!
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs,Kari :)

Donna Ellis said...

Brenda, your card designs look beautiful! Love how you used the same layout for both, and yet, they look completely unique and wonderful! So pretty! May I ask where you found the template for the cards? They are remarkable. hugs, de

Rainey's Craft Room said...

I love this card fold and usually make all the cuts myself but this die would make life so much easier and the job a little quicker. It is a shame that it sold out so quickly.
You have created such a pretty card here Brenda, love the papers on the first one and the monotone one is very striking too.

Donna Ellis said...

I am so embarrassed! I reread your post and see you have used the die cut as the template. LOL sheesh - the answer was right there all along! hugs, de

scrAPpamondo said...

Fabulous shutter cards, Brenda! I have never try to make one of them.
Love expecially your first one, very romantic and with a shabby/vintage look, it's adorable!

Viv's Visuals said...

Great shutter cards Brenda! (And another 3 points!!) x

Gail said...

Oh, I so love the shutter cards!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Gorgeous cards!

ALI said...

Beautiful shutter cards, really like the first one. I've never successfully made one of these.

Stamping Bubbles said...

Fantastic cards today Brenda. These shutter cards are so impressive and to think that one pass through a die cutting machine can produce them takes so much of the maths out of crafting. Maths has never been one of my strong points so anything that reduces that is great for me. I was too slow to get these dies last weekend but hopefully I'll be able to get one at the Doncaster Summer Crafting Show.
Take care and keep warm

Ellie said...

Beautiful creations Brenda. Love the images you used on these cards. I've only made one of these before, as you stated it takes a lot of measuring and cutting, if you don't have a die for it, so I haven't done one since then.

Olenkaja said...

What a perfect project! Wooow!~I like this so much!

Mervi said...

Fabulous Tri shutters, haven't done one in ages, thanks for the inspiration. Love the first card;-))m
