Silver Tree

Yesterday I shared a card with the upcoming Thoughtful Branches bundle and today I am back with another one that I made for one of my lovely team members who recently promoted to Silver. Huge well done Sam, so proud of you.
Once I got creating yesterdays projects I just knew I had to re-create using Silver embossing powder and the effect didn't disappoint.
 As you can see on the photo below the silver does look really lovely on the tree. 

 If you would like to get your hands on the Thoughtful Branches bundle then its available from 2nd August and you could get some money off it by earning coupons during the rest of July.

Thoughtful Branches

Hey there! I have a little bit of a sneak peek of something available to you from 2nd August. This is a limited edition bundle called Thoughtful Branches and is available from 2nd to 31st August. As demonstrators we got to order early and I had a little play with it last week to make 2 Thank You cards.
This first card is for Evan's French teacher as he has had another amazing year learning French. She also told us at parents evening (in April this year) that she still had the card on her mantelpiece that we got her last July! Just shows you the power of a handmade card. Evan reported back that she was thrilled with this years card and we are really hoping he has her again next year.
I also made a regular version which I have kept for my displays. I have to say this design was totally CASED from my lovely Canadian friend Allison Okamitsu whom I had the pleasure of meeting in May on the cruise. You can see Allison's gorgeous makes HERE
 The tree is just so beautiful and cuts out really well on the Big Shot with the new platform. I stamped the tree after I had cut it out. I cannot add details of the items used at the end of the post today with it not being available yet. The colours used are Wild Wasabi and Crumb Cake.
 I really enjoyed making both of these cards and cannot wait to make some more designs. I will be back with another one tomorrow.
Just as a little further sneak peek I thought I would share the images of the dies and stamps in the bundle. Just a fantastic set.
Remember for every £45 you spend in July you could earn a £4.50 coupon to spend in August which you could use towards this bundle.

Jar of Love

Hello! A couple of weeks ago I fell in love with a card shared by my talented team member Katy you can see it here. I was just in awe of this gorgeous card and tried to create a simpler version for a little soiree I organised to celebrate our friends 50th last week. I decided that it would look nice added to a frame and I had a few of these reasonably priced frames left from Ikea, so it became our project for the evening.
 The Pear Pizazz stems were stamped directly onto the background card and everything else was stamped on some scrap card and then cut out with the Big Shot.
The water stamp is a really useful stamp in this set and creates the perfect addition to the jar without having to re-create your own water etc.. 
 You can see my frame decorating the table for when our friend arrived at her surprise soiree! My studio is available for hire for all sorts of celebratory occasions, so if you fancy something a little different please do get in touch with me at thepaperhavenleeds@gmail.com
