Finally some creativity I can post!

I seem to have been MIA for what seems like forever, I have been creating but most of it has been for people who read my blog so I haven’t been able to post the things I have made. I am seriously hoping that my Mum has lost the address to here as this little venture is for her, I got the idea for it from here. I apologise for the bad pictures, I was having trouble finding somewhere large enough to lay it out.

Warning – there are a few photos.

Papers from Breezy Design
Stamps from Tim Holtz, Prima and Dovecraft

Spellbinders dies
Flowersoft
Doodlebug design mini brads
Martha Stewart border punch

Wedding card

I learned today that a friends daughter is getting married in 3 weeks time. The last time I saw her, she was just a little girl, now she is all grown up and off to start a new life with her husband! Where does the time go?
Anyway I took the sketch from Sketch Saturday, the theme of metalic, from One Stop Craft Challenge and Distressing from The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and I came up with this:

Ingredients:
Distress Inks to make the paper for the peel off
Peel Off
DCWV Wedding paper pack
Elzybells sentiment stamps
Kanban adhesive pearls

An Altered Notebook

Here is another of my embossing samples ready for my class at Cullen Crafts this month, I had a notebook with all our website stuff in and I thought it could do with a little decoration. I took the challenges from Alsoorts Challenge blog – no DP’s, The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge – How does your Garden Grow and Stamp, Scrap and Doodle challenge – Wings and came up with this:

For those who wish to know, the background paper was made by heat embossing stamped images and then going over the paper with sponged ink, once dry, wipe a cloth over the embossing and voila, you images show through 🙂
Ingredients:
Composition book
Laser cut butterfly (available in a pack of 4 from Kut 4 U)
Versamark Frost ink pad
Clear embossing powder
Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder
Ranger Glitter Glue
Pretty Color ink pads
Free Digital Stamp (sorry I cant remember where it came from) – coloured digitally
Martha Stewart Punch
Just Rite Stamps
Nestabilities circle & petite scallop circle dies
DCWV Adhesive ribbon

A very pink box

I am teaching a 3D class over at Cullen Crafts next month and decided to make a 4 way matchbox card as a sample. Stamp Something this week wanted pink somethings, so I set out to make it pink, which is not my normal colour but I am thinking it will be more so in future. Raise the bar had a weather theme, and Totaly Papercrafts had a Lets go Digital theme so I used this really cute digital stamp from Squiggle stamps. Last but not least Stamping for the weekend wanted ribbons and bows.

Ingredients

Brolly Girl stamp coloured with Copics
Papermania handmade papers
DCWV Spring glitter stack
Sizzix die
Nestabilities die
Ribbon from stash
Anitas 3d clear gloss
Papermania brads

Good Luck Card

An acquaintance of ours, who we do framing for, has opened up a new gallery in Cullen to sell her pictures and I wanted to make her a good luck card (didnt get chance last week as I was too busy cutting the mounts for her opening) I took the sketch from Truly Scrumptious this week and made what turned out to be a very “Springy” card – it didnt start out that way but I love the result.
Everybody Art Challenge and Crafty Cardmakers wanted a spring card, Papertake Weekly and Crafty Crations both had an Anything Goes theme.

Ingredients
Daffodil Peel off, coloured with Copics
DCWV Spring Paper Stack
Cardstock from stash
Butterfly Punch
Sentiment Peel Off
