Suspended Flowers in a Panel

It's the last day of the month and the last day to enter your projects into our Pattern Paper Challenge. So I thought we could end the month with one final card that showcases some of the amazing pattern papers on offer here at ItsyBitsy. I call it the Suspended Flowers Card. Why is it called so? Because of the little panel I made and the 3 little sparkle florets suspended in this window.

Then the embossed design is music bars and signs. That's neutral and not particularly feminine. Finally, get a load of that bow. Those who are familiar with my work Read more...

A Bountiful Basket of Roses in a Card

Valentines Day is tomorrow and I don't know about you but I've been dreaming about getting a lovely basket of lush red roses from my dear husband. Hopefully he will see this post and oblige (ha ha ) but in the interim I thought I would make do with my home-made basket of roses - in a card. I know you're thinking - is that a card??? It certainly is! It's a card made out of card stock, glitter strips and ribbon so basically I don't really need a basket of actual roses, this should certainly make do! Read more...
