Snip, snip, snip!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing today was a bonus card I created during my regular Facebook live demo earlier this month which was dedicated to the Groovi plate's designer, Josie Davidson.  There is absolutely no embossing involved, only piercing and snipping, hence the post title.  Grin.


Card: Unbranded white and Clarity's clear parchment
Groovi Plates: King Charles duet grid
Tools and embellishments: Clarity plate mate and brads, Pergamano piercing and cutting tools, and pearls from my stash

Challenges...

Embroidered Butterfly

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing today is the one I demoed during my FB live in early December...


The Spirograph style embroidery was a blast from the past for me, but having not done any for years, it was even more fun this time around!  And embroidering the butterfly into place was a whole other matter with numerous people watching my every move, but it was still fun!

Card: Unbranded white blank and kraft (backing the parchment), and Clarity's purple parchment
Groovi Plates: Nested Scallop Squares, Tina's Embroidery Butterflies (inner frame and embroidery placement), and Tina's Butterfly Fun A6 baby plate (yep, Ms. Cox is as mad about butterflies as I am!)
Tools and embellishments: Pergamano embossing and piercing tools, #12 needle, and gold Madeira Embroidery thread

Challenges...
#372 Use Snippets at Pixie's Snippets Playground (the butterfly is literally snipped from a snippet!)
AG at TTCRD
#27 AG at Crafter's Castle

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

Designer Focus ~ Tina Cox

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The cards I'm sharing today are the design I created for my Creative Crew Groovi Live demo earlier this month.  The demo was dedicated to designer Tina Cox, and this is the card I sent to the lady herself...

I always create a number of the same design and send them to random members of the group, coloring the design with the recipient's favorite color.  However, the recipient of this card doesn't a favorite, so I used a variety of colors...

Card: Unbranded white and Clarity's blue parchment
Groovi Plates: Tina's Primrose and Alliums (frame), Tina's Floral Spray, and Butterfly Spacer
Tools and embellishments: Groovi plate mate, Pergamano embossing tools, Clarity brads, and Nuvo shimmer pen (Tina loves glitter!)

Challenges (all top card)...
#298 AG at Brown Sugar
#110 AG at A Bit More Time To Craft
AG at Crafts Galore Encore

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
