"Make your dreams happen"

Crafters Companion can help to 'Make Your Dreams Happen' today

Something totally different for Sussipoppins today!...and using the colour ORANGE!

I love the large sentiment that I could colour, then applied diamond stickles to get that bling that I love so much. I felt it gave a lit to a very very simple card front....something I normally do not do!....Simple that

Who does not like a few close ups. Here you can se the colour used in the groves of the embossing .

The embossing is done twice. The second layer is fussy cut, collard then adhered to the card front base using the 3D tape or squares. Stickles are added to the boon basket....small but effective.

CC Vriendschap...(Friendship)

Crafters Companion love brings you a card for a "Friendship" ("Vriendschap")
Featuring the cute little mini snail and accord houses that Donna Ratcliff has sketches for us, only the fanciful imaginations, dreams and pretend reality can bring us.

 A close up of the 3D layering and gold gilding work.

Not to forget the wonderful matching embossing folders! none other than Sheena Douglas. A colourful ribbon does the trick to finish the card.
