All is calm in the treehouse - or is it ?




Morning Peeps, just popping in with a few Tattered Lace shares using some of the new dies and embossing folders coming up on Create and Craft TV this week.

Also got my Snippets Playground make for this week, last week was a bit riotous over there and Pancake Day was something else. But seems I didn't totally blot my copy book as Sarn has placed Viv and I in charge of the Treehouse for the week as Miss Di is have a break........clearly the events of last Tuesday gave her a bad fit of the vapours and Parsnip has not been sighted since eating his fifth brandy infused cherry pancake.

I am under strict orders not to go dishing out any hooch this week.............as if................for fear of any of the gang ending up legless.................whatever you heard about last Tuesday is nothing but vicious rumors and I promise you that Kath did make it home unaided. Mind you, nobody said a word about the odd bottle of Prosecco so I reckon it's fair game to keep some stashed under the bench.


A short explanation on the cards, the one at the top has several Tattered Lace stamps used on the Dylusion background, the honeycomb pieces are ripped from a larger sheet cut with TH hexagon panel die, the dress is another new TL die being released this week and I placed it over a scrap of glitter card to give it some depth.

The pink and green card has a focal element using the new silver foil and adhesive sheets and TL diamond trellis die, you can see how intricate it is but it cut perfectly in one run through the e.bosser.


More dylusions on the above card, the spotty lines are one of the new border dies, I inked the folder with Versamark and embossed with detail clear before spraying the dylusions so I got a resist finish. The lovely Butterfly is another newish release from TL and some satin ribbon and a prearl embellie to finish.


More of the border dies and lots of gilding wax, a Visible Image sentiment, ribbons and a cameo to which I also added gilding wax to carry the gold colours.

Have a good week all and as always many thanks for your kind visits and comments.

A fabulous collection of inspiration Brenda, the last one is my favourite though...so grown up, unlike the Playground antics of last week!! I must pay a visit, I've not been to play for ages!! xx

SARN said...

Wow, wow and, er WOWSERS . . . what a wonderful array of lusciousness there is to feast the eyes on in this post Brenda. I think I may have card envy! May have to visit the SNIPPETS PLAYGROUND tree house for some of that Prosecco later in the week. Right now, I'm stuck in the cubby hole doing paperwork! Miss Di left LOADS of it for me! Have fun in the lofty heights - don't worry, I'll be turning a blind eye to any shenanigans . . . unless Kath's other half makes a complaint of course!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Sandma's Handmade Cards said...

They are all beautiful Brenda but the top one is my favourite. I just love the colours that you've used, it looks so soft, dreamy and romantic, although I think it would be just perfect for a prom card. Wishing you a happy crafting week X

Shirley Chillman said...

All totally gorgeous but if I was to pick a fave it would be the citrus lemon and lime creation. Hope all is well with you my friend.

Donna Ellis said...

Such an uplifting, beautiful assortment of cards, Brenda. It must have been enjoyable creating them so their magical beauty would not only flow from your finger tips, but into our hearts. I like the butterfly background especially, mixed with a dress - so feminine and girly. those border dies and techniques in your final card really touch my heart - especially with the sentiment! beautiful! hugs, de

What a wonderful assortment of cards Brenda, especially love the last two.

While Miss Di and Sarn are busy I think we should redecorate the treehouse... I'm sure there'll be a lot of volunteers especially as I heard someone mention a bottle or two of Prosecco xx

You've obviously been kept in high spirits since last week and it doesn't seem to affect your crafty output! My favourite are the last 2, with the variegated gilding wax colours having the most pull, so beautiful, elegant CAS but striking all at the same time.
Have a great week, xx

Kathleen said...

Totally stunning range of cards here, the colours are wonderful and some fabulous images and dies and I am going to mention the fabulous bows.
Was just wondering if by any chance last Tuesday I did my Elvis impression, the Doctor seems to think my back problem is muscular but my Sister (no she is not a Doctor) thinks it maybe my pelvis, so as I was in total agony last Wednesday morning, it was just thought.
