...recently our local craft shop had Sue Wilson come down for a demo day and as the ladies enjoyed her work so much I am doing a refresher demo on it so I have been prepping for a demo on fri ...here is one of the cards that will be featured using one of Sue's new dies Tethered hearts..It is a very quick and easy card  to make and the die cuts like a dream. I also used the filigree bow die and cosmic shimmer glue also from the creative expressions range. The butterflies and sentiment stamps  are part  a stamp set from paper pretties.

Coffee and cream

Hi all
Here is another card I will be making at my demo on Friday ..I kept the colour scheme to two colours to keep it  plain and  simple ,so it showed off the die cuts ..The handmade flowers/ leaves are  made using the Sue Wilson classic rose die set.. The bow die is also from Sue Wilson.  The flourish was a free bee from a mag a while ago. The cut out detail is a die from memory box called piestra tile. The stamped butterflies are part of  a stamp set I won at paper pretties.. The pearls are from flourishes with a bling.The linen cardstock is from Limetree crafts.
