New Tattered Lace flowers


This is the lovely new Delicate Peony, it's another in the Charisma range with a CD Rom full of artwork in different colourways, backing papers and matching die for easy decoupaging. 

Afternoon Peeps, hope you all had a good weekend.

Mine was a tad busy preparing artwork for tomorrows Tattered Lace Pick of the Day on Create and Craft, well technically it launches first on Ideal World at 9pm and programmes follow the next day on C&C. 

The dies only arrived in the UK Friday so it was all a bit of a mad rush over the weekend, then sampled needed packaged for dispatch this morning ready for the shows. But there are lovely new flowers so I was a really happy camper and had a real fun time creating, funny that when flowers are involved it just seems to flow. These are just a taster of some of those I made.

When I created the top card I also had an eye on the current Butterfly Challenge where the theme is A Butterfly and Yarn or Thread using a Butterfly is from TL Butterfly Trio set. I also used a good quantity of purple silk that was in a large box of silk embroidery threads bequeathed to me by a lovely lady a few years ago when her arthritis stopped her from doing the needlework she so loved.

This is the Charisma Peony, not to be confused with the Delicate Peony or Peony Corner, because believe me I certainly do get confused with all the variants at times. I also added some Ivy from the Charisma Ivy CR and die set. The little pink pears are new TL products.

Another centre stepper card, I so love this die set as the matting and layering is so quick and easy. The Ballerina is called simply The Dancer and is another new die in tomorrow's shows. I also cut four times the the word dance from the Dance Like Nobody is Watching die to create the banner. The little flowers are also from TL.

Here's the Ballerina again and this time I placed her in an oval aperture backed with a piece of acetate embossed with a TL folder.

This is the new shape card which Desire gave instructions for on her blog recently, it's very quick and easy to create following her instructions. I printed and cut the Delicate Peony in the cream colourway and coordinated with some new Trimcraft DP's and a TL sentiment.

Moonlight Dance is the name of this lovely couple, it's one I made for last weeks shows, I wasn't that keen on it but it go lots of praise from the presenters, so thanks to all of them for their kind words.


Many thanks for popping in and hope you have a good week.

  10. All beautiful cards but my heart is on the one you created for my challenge using the purple embroidery thread. It looks so delicate and really shows off the flowers you have created. I love the filigree butterfly as the finishing touch. Thankyou for fluttering by. Hugs Mrs A.
