AND BLUEBERRY BEAR WILL BE THERE!!!
The gorgeous fancy flatback pearls
can be recoloured using COPIC markers or alcohol inks, as you can see on the card below :
To make up my card I used DP offcuts from the scrap bin, as well as paper roses, pearls from BLUEBERRY BEAR, stick on sentiment and hearts, satin ribbon and bow and a scrap of pretty lace. The cardstock base card is white, as are all the card mats.
Here is a really masculine card (for a religious man) showing that pearl topped brads can be used for a man:
On the outside of the card I used two digistamps from Digistamps Joy, called Floral Cross and Freesian Booklet and created a frame around them.
I used a white CS base card, and blue DP of which I inked the edges for a little more definition.
The card opens up to reveal the two Bible texts
and the third fold lifts up to reveal the message:
As the base card was 240gsm thick and there were three layers plus the DP, I needed to find a way to keep the card closed. A little band of white CS and an off cut of the DP embellished with three pearl top brads from BLUEBERRY BEARhold it closed nicely now. Here are the brads that I think give a touch of class to an otherwise rather ordinary card front:
I decided to make a Valentine's Day card to show you how the beautiful flatbacked pearl hearts can be used.
My starting point was a recently purchased sheet of 12 x 12 DP and I used the centre image in the top row.
After I cut out the image, I inked the edges to give them some definition, and mounted it onto kraft card that also had the edges inked. I coloured the image a little with my alcohol markers to increase the intensity:
Here you will find links to the products in the online store (that is not quite ready for you yet!) and where you can place your mail orders.
In the meantime, if you would like to place an order (unfortunately at this stage we can accommodate South African shoppers only), you can email or call for more information.
This will be the place to catch up with all the products already in stock and the yummy stuff that is expected, for example, these gorgeous organza flowers will look amazing in the centres of the fabulous paper flowers that we already have in stock. The colours have been specially selected to co-ordinate with the Fancy Pearls and the flowers.
