Goodmorning! Here is a baby girl card I have done using my spellbinders lacey circles die. I have used a sizzix embossing folder for the pink backing card and gone over the top of the embossed area with a gelly roll pen. below is the instructions on how to make the pram you can use this pram on your cards or scrapbooking page:
you will need two 6.7cm circles in two colours (I used the third smallest die from the spellbinders lacey circles) two 2cm crcles for the wheels, 2 brads or buttons for the centre wheels, wire or fashioned cardstock for the handle, ribbon for the rim of the pram you can do this bigger, bear in mind the bigger the carriage, the bigger the wheels you will need. I find the scalloped circles are easier for when you scor the top.
cut two lacey circles both the same size in contrasting colours. the white card you need to cut the top right hand corner out @ a right angle (I layed both pieces on top of eachother and peirced the centre, so they aligned exactly when put together). the pink piece you only need to make one cut from the centre to the right hand outside. The whole top half will be scored with your scor tool (I have a scorpal) you need to score from the centre to the outside using the scalloping as guides. fold each scollop up and down like a fan and glue down to the white under-card- when I glued the pink circles, I twisted it a little so the scallops set half way between the white scallops circle . I used a piece of 22gauge wire I had from my jewellery making days for the handle you could used a fashioned peice of cardstock, beaded wire or some adhesive rhinestones/pearls. the wheels are two circles pieces with moonstone brads from wild orchid crafts. Ribbon form stash.
I hope this all makes sense, please leave a message if you need anything clarified thanks for stopping by
good morning, I am off to the markets soon to sell my cards, so am making up quick and easy cards. This baby card looks complicated, but its not really. I have refined my technique, which I am having uploading the picture of, so will keep trying. from the pram you basically need two circles of contrasting colours. this boys one I use my scalloped circles form spellbinders. For my girls one, I used the spellbinders lacey circles. the girl carriage is my more refined technique, so I will go through that when I upload the picture. The beautiful wheel centres are new moonstone brads from wild orchid crafts....thats the bad thing about blogging- you find all these awesome stores on other peoples' blogs and spend WAY too much money LOL!!!! alright- I will attempt to post my pink girl card when I get home from the school run.

Craft Queen Australia. I'm not usually a green fan, but this ribbon ties in well with the touch of green in the birds on the DT paper. The inside of this card I used another stamp from hero Arts "hug for you". The front of the bottom card is a rubon from Kaisercraft "Father". the tree ....well I cut up (destroyed) a papermania stamp so I wouldn't have the snowflakes in the image....called "Winter Floral and Fauna". I love how this has worked though! The bird I cut out form the paper. The circle mount is just two spellbinders "Lacey circles" off set with each other. The inside is stamped with a 1994 sampin up stamp "thanks for all you do". A splashing of stickles and bling, and viola! fathers cards!

Good morning! I thought I'd share a little card I made for my nephews birthday earlier this year. I find it hard to do boys cards, so when I came across this set of Hero Arts "monster fun" stamps at a craft show I knew I had to get them. The monster in the image has two eyes stamped but I managed to find a large enough boggly eye to cover them up. the purple brads are ric rac brads purchased in my scrapooking days. A short and sweet post, thanks for stopping by XOX Tania

Good morning! phew, I finally got this finished! I spent most of last evening and this morning on this gorgeous flip top christmas countdown calendar. I'm loving my zutter at the moment, and I am so pleased that I work well with a craft knife, because boy oh boy it has had a workout the last week! all of this calendar is hand cut- except for the sleigh and the tag- both cut with a spellbinders die. The tag has about four layer to stiffen it, and the sleigh I cut 6 of- two paper, 2x acetate and 2x JAC paper, then I glued an acetate base into it- for the the lollies of course LOL!!!!! Flowers are from wild orchid crafts and the ribbon is from craft queen lots of glitter and bling, snowflakes from little hand punches from the cheap shop. The gorgeous paper is from nitwits called giggles and grins too.
Now...if anyone has links to cuttlebug, sizzix, marianne creatables, or any other die manufacturing company can you please put in a request for me???? I would like a plain set of number dies that are bulky and large- say about 2.5" high but affordable too! is that too much to ask LOL???? To acheive these numbers I printed a nitwits print, then using the word art on my computer at (I think) size 36-40 I printed over that, then hand cut them with my knife........yep and I have the callouses on my fingers to prove it too LOL!!!!!

Hi There again! (lots of posts from me today sorry!) thought I'd show you some of my hat pins I've been making and selling on ebay. They are very sparkley and are adorable on cards. Many may be wondering what I used to glue them...I tried the various types of bead glues and found they held them for a little while, but I couldn't be sure they would stand the test of time. Hot glue on the ends looked aweful...so I actually use hot glue, but I glue the tinest amount between the end and 2nd from the end end bead (eg for the first pin glue between the silver bead and the purple glass bead- try and put your glue as close to the glass bead as you can)....then I get my heat gun tool and heat the hot glue to remelt it, as it is melting I push the end bead up to the next bead- the hot glue goes down the centre hole- some glue may be left on the beads- I just etch that off with my blade knife.
