Hello, hope you're having good week so far. I got a wonderful delivery in the post today from Craft Mojo, it was my most recent order counting items from MFT, Paper smooches, Janes Doodles and Wplus9. I was so excited I just HAD to squeeze in 20 mins of crafting- I've left my craft room in a right mess but tidying will have to wait until another day.
So here's the card, I've used the MFT Bold Sentiment stamp set along with some of my older MFT items. I die cut the circle from DP, then I cut the banner from white card using the MFT banner stax dies and finally the flower was cut using the MFT Prima Donna die.
To finish I added some pearls in co-ordinating colours. Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow for a new Crafty Ribbons Challenge. Ohh and don't forget to become a follower and sign up for my blog candy draw. Rebecca x x
Hello, sorry for the late post I didn't get chance to schedule this card yesterday so it had to wait until this evening.
This card if for a friend at work, it's her 30th birthday. To create the "happy" banner I used some very sticky, quick-drying Dovecraft glue to stick die-cut letters onto a length of twin. The letters were cut using a Lawn Fawn alphabet, Coles ABCs. Along with the die-cut banner I've used some papers I got free on a magazine and a leftover piece of glitter vellum. I've also added sequins to the paper banner too.
Morning, happy Monday. I'm back to today with a DT card for CraftMojo.
This one is very CAS on the outside, I've stuck to a very simple colour palette of just green and yellows with grey/black for the outline and sentiment.
I've stamped the gorgeous Paper Smooches chick and then masked it off using a Post-it note and the lightly add some Hero Arts grey ink using a little piece of blending foam. I think this is a really good way to add depth to a one layer card.
Hello, sorry I've been MIA this weekend, it's just been really hectic. Idid have cards to post but didn't have time to edit the photos and write the blog post- sorry! But I'm back today with a card for the latest Dynamic Duos challenge- Deep pink with navy.
I've used a sizzix embossing folder to create the background and then the butterfly and sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Butterfly Wishes stamp set. To add a bit of interest to the larger butterfly I've actually applied both the pink/red and blue ink colours to the stamp.\
Thanks for stopping by and please drop in tomorrow if you can because I will be back with a card for Craft Mojo- who, buy the way have LOADS of new stamps in from amazing brands such as Paper smooches and WPlus9!!! Rebecca x x x
I know, pretty shocking but today I have something other than a card to share with you. I decided to get a bit creative last week during half term and bought myself a canvas (only coat £1.09) and a tube of pale pink acrylic paint.
I started by painting the base with the pink paint....
Next I added brown ink, through a stencil, using a sponge- I did this around all the corners and edges in no particular pattern. Then I decided the use the paint leftover on the stencil to add a very feint pattern to the middle of the canvas. Next I started added stamped images using mostly Brilliance ink pads in browns, pinks, coppers etc. I've used butterflies and a small sentiment from a MFT set. The larger flowers are an Indigoblu stamp and the smaller flowers/stems are gain from MFT- Peaceful Wildflowers. The sentiment in the middle is from LOTV- this is my least favourite part as i think it is a bit small even though it was one of my largest sentiment stamps. Perhaps next time I need to use a slightly smaller canvas.
Finally, I added glossy accents and glitter to some of the flower heads.
All in all I quite like how it turned out- its hanging on the wall of my craft room. I think if I make another I might do it for a gift for someone else.
