Tsunami Rose Design Team Post - more cards!

Today I am posting some cards I made for Tsunami Rose Designs.
Daisy has the most beautiful printables out there!
I love her papers and you will love the prices!
Today I have for you 3 cards. I used a mixture of papers on
the cards. I used some papers from different journal kits and
they all go together so well...

I do have to warn you this post is picture heavy.....lots and lots of pictures!!!!

The first card is a Center Stair Step Card.
I also used Rose Notecards Junk Journal Kit for the flowers.
I printed a whole page of them , then coloured them and layered.
I think they are my favorite flowers. 

I used the New Beginnings papers layered to add 
dimension to this card. The tag is part of the journal kit.
I added pink sparkly gems to the flowers and added
pearls and lace to the card.
The Mr & Mrs is computer generated.

My second card is a Four Fold Card. 
You can find the tutorial here
Thanks to Lyssa Griffin Zwolanke!
I had never made one before this but I love it because
it showcases many papers in the kit.
Ephemera Set #14  (the feather)

I added some CTMH ribbon as a belly band.

I love the stunning colours of this kit..They make 
this card pop. The feather from the  Ephemera Kit #14
goes perfectly with the Polished Lachluster Kit.
I added CTMH blue and pink ribbon here and there and
black jewels to add dimension.

"Love" is a memory box die.
This card is a wedding card but can be made
into a little wedding day album. I added the tag into
the envelope holder. It can be used for journalling on the back
Add pictures throughout the card. 

I added lace here and there.
The saying on the tag is computer generated.
Thanks Kimberly for the saying!

My third card is a Tri-Shutter card.
It is one of my favorite types of fancy fold card.
This card is made with Life Abloom Rose Journal Kit
It is also made with the Rose Notecards Printable Journal
(Rose Ephemera)

The Rose Ephemera is perfect for this card and goes
great with the Life Abloom papers. 
I have made another wedding card.

A metal corner accents the paper.
Mr & Mrs is cut from the cricut.
I added light pink lace and a dragonfly charm.
I also added butterflies and some gems.

Hope you enjoyed my cards as much as I did making them..

Tsunami Rose Design Twisted Flip Card

Today I am posting a card I made for Tsunami Rose Designs.
I love designing for Daisy as she has such gorgeous digital papers 
and she challenges us to make and try new things.
Today I have made for you a Twisted Flip Card.
It was an experience to come to make this card.
I watched three or four different video tutorials and tried all three.
I decided on one in particular but I still had issues as I was
trying to make it sit a certain way. I found out just to 
accept the way it sat and had a blast making this card.
(and now two more) 
A shout out to Sincerely Rina on youtube
for your fantastic video tutorials.

Here is my Twisted Flip Card.
They are so elegant.

This is the  front of the card. I added a belly band to hold
all of the card together.

This is without the belly band.
I added lace and gems and some 
bling brads.

Here is the card just opening. Check out the twisted flip.
This is a very cool card and I love how Daisy's digital papers
just add the details I wanted for this Mother's Day Card.

The pieces from Daisy's collections were exactly perfect
for the panel part of this card.
I added lace and gems throughout to add more
elegance and also dimension.

I also want to make this type of card into a wedding card 
with Daisy's papers from another set of digital papers so 
expect to see that soon. It would make a perfect mini
album card .


I chose to use all the rose paper from the kit
and it is so beautiful. I will say it again this
rose notecards kit digital papers are so versatile. 
I have used them for this Mother's Day card,
a male Birthday card, another Birthday card
and  a wedding card.

I have also added a video to facebook and 
my youtube channel... check it out!!!

You can find all Daisy's info below.
We hope to see you on the facebook groups.
And remember Daisy's prices are amazing.

Happy Friday!
It's been a beautiful week here in 
Southwestern Ontario.
 It's more like spring than February.
Today I am showing off my project that I made
with printable pages from Tsunami Rose Designs.
I just love all of Daisy's designs. She has gorgeous papers
that you can make into almost anything.
With the Rose Notecard Journal papers I have made a flip book,
a male birthday card, a birthday card and a wedding card.
In this flip book I used file folders for the basic book.
I used lots of bling and some lace. 
I also used butterfly washi tape on the edges.
I also used Ephemera Set #12 and #13

This book flip down. 
The top flips to the right then 
the file on the top flips up.
The file on the bottom flips to
the left. The file on the bottom then
flips down... I have pockets and journal pages
ephemera, journal spots all made with Daisy's
digital papers. This journal was so much fun to make.

Tsunami Rose Design Team Post - Cards

Hey it's Saturday and it's getting warmer here in Southwestern Ontario. 
I can't believe it's again above 0C  The 14 day forecast is for more day 
above 0C than for below 0C. I love this winter,
 its been warmer rather than cold.
I have some cards I made from Tsunami Rose Designs digital paper.

This card is 6x6.
Also check out this Ephemera Set 13
The papers under the silver embossed piece (diamond plate) 
are from the Rose Notecard Junk Journal Kit.
All pieces are distressed.
I have added 6 silver square brads.
The ribbon is from my stash.
This card would be great for Father's Day 
or a male birthday.

This card is 5 x 6 1/2.
All the paper used is from the Rose Notecard Junk Journal kit.
There is also Rose Notecard Add Ons...
I used a Tim Holtz die to cut the pattern in the paper.
To make the flowers I used Daisy's flowers and resized them
and printed them out.. I then cut them out and layered them.
I coloured the flowers with copics and roughed them up a bit.
I used the gold pen around the flowers for dimension.
I added two different burlaps to give it a rustic look.
The bow is made with seam binding.
I also added pink translucent pearls to the flowers.
"Two Become One" is computer generated.

My third card is a 6x6 card.
It's my Rose/Butterfly card.

The papers are from Rose Notecard Junk Journal Kit.
I have layered 3 different pieces of emphera .
I distressed all pieces of  paper.
The butterflies are from Daisy's sets, layered and inked.
I added paper clips and lace and black beads.
On the tag I added three heart brads. I pop dotted this.

All of my card showcase the versatility of Daisy's papers
and emphera. I have made three different cards for you.
I love the vintage feel of the cards. 
My wedding card could have been made more modern by using the 
same papers but adding more glitter and gold.
Daisy's designs are amazing.

Thanks for stopping by!
Come back soon!

Happy Friday!

Happy New Year

Hello fellow bloggers. I have been away for awhile due to health issues but that isn't really a good enough excuse. I have been crafting alot just not blogging so my KINDA new years resolution is to try to blog every day or so.. Even if I am not showing my crafting goodies I will blog a little something about something.
Its a nasty day outside in Southwestern Ontario.. snowed overnight and now is trying to rain.
The wind is blowing strong... oppps just looked outside as I sit at the computer and its snowing great big flakes (wonder what happened to the rain?) It's a good day to stay inside and craft and read and
make meatloaf and mashed potatoes for supper.
Hope everyone had a safe and happy Christmas season and a Happy New Year!
(Im off to find my camera so the next post can have some pics!!!)
