What "NO BOW "

Good Afternoon everyone. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment.

As you are aware if you visit my blog regularly, you will know the problems I have had with my Ebosser. Thankfully I am married to a man that will have a go at anything, but I made him sign a contract that if he could'nt get it back together, " can I have another one ". He did sign it, but he said the arm lock was a bit harsh.

Luckily he did put it all back together and it is working. A bit slower, sounds different and won't switch itself off so can't leave it unattended. What a clever man!! I haven't been brave enough to put the heart lattice EF through the machine again yet, I'll have to be brave one day as it is so lovely.
So, it has taken a bit longer to make this card, due to the machine being a bit slower,  and not so deeply embossed in some areas. I hope you like this one.

Products used:-

8X8 pearl card
Mirrorboard card/ Peachy-pink
White card 300 gsm For the embossing layer
Embossalicious folder, Rose vine
Sue Wilson Austrian collection- Vienna
Spellbinders- Fancy Tags Two
Roses, Finishing touches
Card for roses butterfly card, also for matt and layering from Sarah's stamp shack, local craft shop
Paper for white roses, pearl paper was a free gift from Ann Marine Designs
Swirl leaves, TBA
Butterfly Couture creations
Tiny white pearls, I think 2mm?
Pearl sprigs

Again I hope you this card. See you all again soon, hopefully sooner.

Love  Tina XX

    1. Hi steph

      No this was not an order, just wanted to make another card for my blog. XX

  2. Tina, glad to hear it's working again even if a bit slower and not as quite! But it did need major work, my Charlie is like Paul he will have a look to see what's what, and most times he can repair things. Any way your card is stunning and ok it's for your blog but pop it in a box so if you need a card in a hurry you have one. Hazel xx

  3. Another stunner and glad you got your e-bosser sorted out (in a fashion) I wouldn't dare let my OH near my machine!! xx GailT xx

  4. WOW!! Tina this is stunning, beautiful dies and your blooms are gorgeous, your really have an eye for design.
    Pleased your machine is back in harness, even although it's a bit slower. hugs Kate x

  5. Hi Tina
    Well there may be no bow but this card is stunning so very beautiful those butterflies look ready to fly off and all this with a slow and limping ebosser impressive to say the least. Who ever gets this card will be over the moon and should treasure it. There is one question whatever next I can't wait!

    With love
    Margaret xx

  7. Hi Tina wow your card is stunning I love your flowers & the butterfly's ( my favourite things ) so pleased your hubby was able to mend your E Bosser, my husband always has bits left over when he fixes things nuts & bolts ext haha.any way your very talented Tina Hugs Lynda xx

  8. Hi Tina
    Another beautiful card chuck. Always elegant.
    Gosh, what a bother you have had with your ebosser.
    Wasn't it still under warranty? Can't believe they would tell you to take a mallet to it, how crazy.
    Have to say, the ebosser has never appealed to me, mainly because I just think by involving electronics, there's more chance of problems. Also, we have had a few returned at work as faulty.
    Hopefully you won't have anymore issues.
    Take care.
