7 Days of Halloween - Day 4

Hello Peeps! 

It's time for day four of my Seven days of Halloween, this card is for my friend's little boy.  I have used a pre-coloured image by Hobby House, the sheet is called Hazel's Halloween from Foil Play.  I added some Dried Marigold Distress Ink around the edge of the image and matted and layered it on black cardstock.

I have added some die cuts from my stash.  The leaf embellishments were sent to me by an Instagram friend in some Happy Mail.  The sentiment is from Docrafts Daisy and Dandelion Pumpkin and Aubergine stamp set.

7 Days of Halloween - Day 1 - ATC Halloween Swap

Hello Crafters

I love Halloween (or Samhain as it's known in the Wiccan community) and I have had so much fun making a few Halloween projects which I will be sharing over the next seven days.  Today I'm sharing my first make for my Seven days of Halloween. This month I signed up to do a Halloween swap over at the Faery Ink Facebook group.  It's been a while since I've taken part in a swap or made any ATCs, I really enjoyed making these and putting together a small swap parcel. 

The images are from Faery Ink and are two of my favourites, Gabbie Vamp and Ghost Lenore, I believe they are now retired.  I watercoloured them with Distress Markers.

Keep on Crafting Blog Makes - 18 & 20 Sept

Hello Peeps! 

Still trying to conquer this cough, it's a real stinker and hanger-on!  Although this blog has been quiet I have posted quite a few scrapbook pages on my other blog which you can see here.

Here are my makes from the Keep on Crafting blog for last week. 

This gift bag was made using Kasiercraft 12 x 12 papers and a Woodware stamp. 

My next make is a card using decoupage by Craft Creations Ltd, non-shed glitter cardstock and Boot Prints Mini Stencil by Creative Expressions.

Crystal Art 40 x 90 Canvas

Good Morning Peeps

So I mentioned on Wednesday that I had been undertaking a large DT project and here it is, Nature's Song crystal art canvas.

It took quite a few afternoons of work but it was very calming.  Also ideal as I have been suffering from a sore throat, cough and just about every other cold symptom, and I still can't seem to shift it, for just sitting and crafting, no need to get out all my stash and it's the first time in a while I have seen my craft table! 

There is also a video but it's too big for blogger but you can can see it on my FB page or Instagram.  You can order this and lots of other size crystal art canvases and cards from here.

Keep on Crafting Shop Blog Makes 4th - 6th Oct

Good Morning Crafters

My blog has been quiet lately for two reasons; firstly I have been undertaking a very large DT project which I will share on Friday and secondly I have been knocked backwards and upside down by a sore throat and cough which refuses to disppear, it looks as if a trip to the drs might be on the cards if it hasn't gone by the end of this week. 

Anyway that's enough of my woes, here are the samples I made for the Keep on Crafting shop blog last week. 

First up was a card using Izink pigment inks and stamps and stencils from John Lockwood.

My second project was a Christmas card using a Woodware stamp and Kuretake Clean Color pens.

Morning Peeps!

Today I'm sharing my makes for the shop blog from last week.

Wednesday's make was a Christmas card using a decoupage sheet from Craft Creations Ltd, and if you look closely at the bottom of the card you can see I have used the Boot Prints stencil from Creative Expressions to emboss footprints.

On Thursday I used some Crafting Together stamps to make an Autumn birthday card.  Sentiment is a Woodware stamp.

Friday was a masculine Winter birthday using stamps from John Lockwood. Same sentiment as the Autumn card.
