Good Morning Crafters

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and of course today is Bank Holiday here in the UK so we are enjoying an extra day off work.  I'm sharing a card I made using pieces from one of Crafteezee boxes, Art Deco from Noor Design UK.

From the Crafteezee Box;
Three 8 x 8 Craftwork Cards Papers - Backing, stip cut with Victoriania timmer blade, Bird
Black and Gold Lace
Black Prima Tiza Flower
Gold and White Straw
Gold Tassel
White Feather
Bronze metal leaf
Art Deco foiled sentiment
Jewel gem

Pebeo High Viscosity 352 Iridescent Gold Acrylic spritz with water.  This is the first time I have added splats to anything.  I could never get it to come off the fan brush, then after watching a few youtube videos I realised I needed to add water to make it thinner - Doh!

Forest Friends - Creative Crafting World

Good Morning Crafters 

I hope you are having a good week.  It's feeling a little Autumnal today which has me a little giddy as I love Autumn.

Today I'm sharing a make using the Forest Friends Papercraft Collection from Creative Crafting World.  When I saw this I just fell in love with the artwork and the colour tones.  I have used one the concept cards with the animal elemtents but have also taken a topper from one of the other sheets.  I want to use some of the toppers individually with other crafty stash and also some of the pieces for scrapbooking, there is a particularly nice sentiment I want to use for a page using photos of Fergus.

Not really a lot more to say about this card so I hope like me you will just admire the lovely illustrations.

Gothic Lace Congratulations

Morning Crafters

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  On Saturday I attended a further Distress Oxides workshop at Keep on Crafting in Bury St Edmunds, we had great fun making lots of fabulous backgrounds and stamped images, and learnt some new techniques.  I will share the results soon.

Today I'm sharing the last of the four cards I made one afternoon using the Gothic Lace Lelli-Bot Crafts kit.  Everything is from the kit including all the embellishments.  I still have lots left over so expect some more of these in the future, hopefully you aren't bored of them yet lol!  

I stitched the charm to the card.

It's time for another Land Rover card!

Morning Visitors!

I hope you had a lovely weekend.  Yesterday I picked up some crafty bargains from a bootsale and we did some light gardening.  Saturday saw me partaking in crafty adventures in the morning with Christine Emberson of Spellbinders at a Keep on Crafting workshop (I will share the cards in a few days) and then a family meal to celebrate my Brother-in-Law's birthday, which leads me nicely on to today's card. 

The background is Distress Oxides; Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain, Fozziled Amber and Vintage Photo.  The postcard I bought from Ebay a while ago, I have distressed the edges and added Vintage Photo distress ink. I have a small stash of these postcards which will mostly be used on cards for my Brother-in-Law, as regular followers may remember that he loves Land Rovers.

I had used structure paste, Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain Distress Oxides with a stencil from Stamps Away.

Wishing you a lovely week.

Keep On Crafting Blog Makes 2 - 4 August

Greetings Crafters! 

I hope your week is going well.  Lots of crafting planned today and a trip to the library bus this afternoon, a couple of real books and few audio books to collect, I love to listen to stories whilst I craft.  

As is the norm now, today I'm sharing the makes I made for the Keep on Crafting shop blog last week.  

Wednesday's card used Distress Oxides, Woodware and Paperartsy Stamps. 

Thursday's card was my favourite, I loved using bubble wrap to create the background. 
The stamps are Woodware and Paperartsy, can you tell these are two of my favourite stamp brands! 

Finally on Friday, as promised, I made a non-Christmas card using a Christmas stamp.  I used distress oxides in Autumnal colours with the Sparkly Trees stamp from Woodware.

Bonus Papers Reader DT - Quick Cards Made Easy Issue 168

Greetings Visitors!

Think I might have blinked and missed this week!  What do you have planned for the weekend?  I'm off to the free crafting day at Keep on Crafting to see Rushanne Young demonstrate some Autumn and Festive seasonal makes using Stix 2 and Woodware products amongst other things.  I'm also hoping to do some filming of some of the demos.

Today I'm sharing the card I made using the free Bonus Papers from issue 168 of Quick Cards Made Easy. At the time of writing this I haven't managed to pick up my copy yet so I don't if this made it into the magazine but I know it will be on the website and Facebook page. 

The papers are a picnic theme.  I have used Kraft card for my base and a gingham sheet from the papers.  I created a pocket using the strawberry paper and a sentiment.  I then cut tags from the papers, added ribbon from my stash and made paper brads for the corners. I have added Festive Berries Distress Ink to the edges of the paper.

Creative Blessings.  x

Keep on Crafting Shop Blog Makes 26 - 28 July

Hello Peeps!

Suddenly it's August and it's mid-week!  Thank you to those that stopped by the shop blog it is much appreciated.  If you missed them here are last week's shop makes;

Wednesday and Thursday's makes made use of the pieces I have created at the Distress Oxides class at Keep on Crafting on Saturday.
Using Dried Marigold and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxides with Woodware Butterflies and Vintage Inspiration stamps.
Using Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide, Woodware Vintage Inspiration, Butterflies and Travel stamps.

Friday's share was a self-indulgent piece.  I love using this Wheat stencil to create Lavender. I thought about cutting this piece down and turning it into card but in the end it felt more like a journal piece so I added the quote and adhered to a page in my random pieces scrapbook. 
Using Imagination Crafts Wheat, Cages and Spring Birds stencils and Antique Linen, Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Weathered Wood, Bundled Sage, Seedless Preserve and Black Soot Distress Inks, with Zig 08 Pure Black Millenium Pen.

Creative Blessings.  x
