Spring and Summer blooms and a snippet




Hello Peeps, hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was a tad busy craft wise and below is part of the reason why, yep it's another new Tattered Lace release on Create and Craft tomorrow.

All of the cards in this post showcase new Charisma flowers which are part of the new Craftinator, there are other new dies and embossing folders as well, some I will share later in the week for Friday's C & C Pick of the Week. The others have to stay secret for a little longer I'm afraid.


The Charisma flowers are so versatile, each set consists of a CD Rom which has each spray of flowers in a variety of colours along with coordinating backing papers and a matching die.

The card above will I hope fit in at the Playground this week, so long as I am not still in disgrace for smuggling in the Hooch last Thursday.......if I am I shall blame Sarn, it was all her idea and she 'made' me do it, honest she did ! Anyhow the papers on the card above are snippets from my stash, in fact the bottom one is two offcuts and the top piece covers the gap very nicely.


There is now quite a collection of Charisma sets from Spring and Summer flowers to Christmas foliage and flowers and whenever I am working with them my minds goes back to the days when decoupaging was a painstaking and time consuming craft with ever piece requiring cutting by hand. With the Charisma sets all that hard work is removed and it takes just minutes to print out the images and cut all the layers in one easy go.


The pillow box above is also a Tattered Lace CD Rom and has been printed onto card stock with one of the Charisma designs and it folds together in just a minute or two.

And there had to be an easel card and floral wreath, again using coordinating Charisma papers and flowers.


Hope you all have a good week and my thanks for your visit today...............and please keep an eye open as I have some candy to give away which I will get posted in the next day or so.

Di said...

Oh Brenda - first of all a really wonderful snippets make with the vintage twist, as well as all the other beauties! So talented and so many wonderful ideas - we're so pleased you come to play with us in the Playground :)

BUT, hand out for a little smack - did you really sneak hooch into the party, and blame that poor little innocent creature called SaRn?!? Harrumph, the little smack is just 'cos you didn't let me have first dibs :) I know Sarn only too well - hey up gal - you fitted in just brilliantly into the madness of the playground.

Hugs

Di xx

MaryH said...

Once again, I'm going OOH, AAh, and hoping these products will be available in the USA. Each card is just so doggoned pretty with these flowers..how versatile they are in each design (and your capable hands). Amazing to see what you can do with a few snippets & some good (I'm drooling) dies! So YOU were the one behind the Hooch! You gotta watch that Sarn, she is an instigator fer shore. Good thing I was missing...probably would have carted me off to the hoosegow. Some gorgeous cards, and can't wait to see the new release. Been collecting some TL dies when some of my online places have been having a little sale. TFS & Hugs. Hope you are feeling ok too.

Gorgeous creations, those flowers are fabulous, the colours are wonderful and so many lovely layouts.
I loved your Hooch, Sarn innocent, well not too sure about that, but I did write a take on the song Dancing Queen and she refused to let me publish it as she said I would never be out of detention.

KandA said...

These are all so beautiful and so hard to pick a favourite but I do love the one you took to the Playground and it's such a great idea to use up strips of papers - you wouldn't guess there was a gap under the top piece. Hope all is well with you xx
