Bedtime stories

Vandaag is Annette Connelly onze Guest Designer
en zij maakte deze combinatie:

Hello everyone. I'm Annette Connelly.  I'm so proud to be sharing my project with you today as a guest designer for Crealies

I've been a fan of Crealies for a long time, especially the large nesting dies and box templates which make cute little gift boxes so easy to make.  But today, I'm sharing a card and matching bookmark tag made with a range of gorgeous products.

On my card I've used one of my favourite Crea-Nest-Lies XXL no. 41 which come in extremely generous sizes to suit all cards without squashing the space around the image.  The largest in the set of 12 dies is 13.5cm but I've used one of the slightly smaller ones on my card. I also love that it's got a pierced edge which gives it fantastic texture.

I've also used two 'on the edge' dies, one to shape the card base, and the other to create a banner for my ribbon strip.

​Again both of these have stitched or pierced edges which give a fantastic finish to the die-cut edge.

I've used a beautiful layered flower die set which I've chalked to add more dimension and combined it with a large pearl in the centre.  There are two die sets to create this flower, a petal shape set and an overlay set to give texture to the petals.

The image is 'Bedtime Stories' and I've also made a matching bookmark tag using my large Crealies tag die which also has pierced edge texture.  The tags are really large, and even though I've not used the largest in the set, you can see it measured up the same size as the card which, like most of my card bases, is 6x6.

Finally, I've used a fantastic background stamp from Crealies called 'stones' behind the teddy bear to make it look like he's propped up against a wall.  I masked the bear and stamped the bricks either side of him in a pale grey water-based ink. I then my paintbrush to give the stones some detail with some more ink afterwards.

I hope you like my project and thank you again to Annelies and Ingrid for the opportunity to showcase my card on the Crealies blog.

Happy crafting
