Using the Oh So Eclectic bundle by Stampin' Up!

Hello there,
I have a card today that I used the little pieces out of the trellis die from THIS CARD. I went with a Tranquil Tide base with Lemon-Lime twist overlay pieces and Berry Burst flowers. The flowers were  then topped with a vanilla card fine flower overlay and some of the new, pretty gold faceted gems, see...
I used a TIP from the papercrafting queen, Jennifer McGuire, for attaching all these tiny little pieces. First, leave as many pieces in the die as possible, add a dot of glue to the back each piece, position the die then pop out the pieces when in place. Then with any missing pieces place the original die cut card over the already adhered pieces, dot glue in the gaps and fill in with remaining bits. Ta dah!
Notice those embossed leaves? These are new embossing only dies that are included in the Oh So Eclectic set - as well as a faceted heart and a tiny leaf frond too. How fun!
Well, that's all from me for today, I hope you liked todays make? 
I'll be back tomorrow with more! 
Before I go a quick reminder that we are in the last few days to use this months hostess code for a freebie from me next month to say thanks...

Using Dragonfly Dreams To Say Thanks!

I have a card today using the dragonfly Dreams stamp set. We (the Jems) recently made lots of cards send as a thank you to the emergency services after the Manchester bombing and I thought the bumble bee in this set was just perfect, have a look...
I used the tiny cluster of stars from the (very sadly retired) Love Sparkles between each bee.
And the sentiment is from the Thankful Thoughts set, nice and large to make a splash!
 A simple but sweet card and easy to make several of at once.
Hopefully they were able to convey a little of the thanks we all felt for our emergency services especially at such a tragic time but also for each and every other day too!
Thanks so much for looking today,

Delightful Daisy Circles with Wood Words by SU!

Hello there,
Today's card uses the Delightful Daisy DSP again but I've picked up on the Calypso Coral in this design and teaming it with Pool Party,  take a look...
I chose two of the papers from the pack and stamped the third circle using the flowers and sentiment from Wood Words*.
*This set can be purchased with the crate framelits for 10% off*
I started adding the circles from the top down and the final circle went on with dimensionals.
All finished with some gold thread and a few iridescent sequins.
OK, that's all from me for today, hope you enjoyed today's card?
Thanks for looking :-)

A Little WIld Honey Bear :-)

Hi there,
Today's card uses the A Little Wild stamps and dies. As I mentioned HERE, recently, I love these cute little animals and think they make awesome cards, I just need to know more little kids though so I can use them much more!! Although I do think you could send todays card to almost anyone (you like - quite a lot) really, what do you think....
The background is a watercolour wash in Blushing Bride and the bear and hive were stamped on separate watercolour paper and die cut out before adding over the washed layer.
How cute are those little bees?
And one last photo for today. Is this stamp set on your wish list??
Thansk for looking today :-)

Making the Daisy Delight DSP the star of the card! And a Video Tutorial!

Hello there,
Today's card is one I made with the most beautiful paper I have seen in a while! It's from the Daisy Delight pack and when I saw it I really just wanted to make it the star of the card.  And so that's exactly what I tried and I ended up making these cards...
 I just can't seem to stop using the super lovely navy gingham ribbon (see another, different card HERE), it goes with everything and ties such lovely bows...
 Still love the stitched edge dies :-)
So, I thought I would make a super quick tips video for you sharing how to make this card including how to tie a ribbon bow so it sits straight, like on this card.
So, here's the video. Please note I inadvertently used a smaller stitched die for the card in the video, to fit the larger sentiment use the second smallest stitched die and a slightly larger circle :-) Oopsie!
 and finally both the original cards together again to finish today!
Well, that's all from me for today. Back tomorrow with another card for you, I'd love to see you here!
