Crocus With Love

 


Hello, today I have a card to share that uses the free die that came included with issue 73 of Die- cutting Essentials Magazine.

The die was cut three times from smooth white card stock and layered to create depth. This was then added to a panel of white card that had been coloured with Cracked Pistachio and Wild Honey Distress Inks. Then took the petals from one of the left over die cuts and coloured them using Copic markers. Wink of Stella was added to make them sparkle and some white gel pen highlights before inlaying them into place. The stamens for the Crocus were then cut from Gold Mirror card.

The background was created by inking through the Latticework stencil by Tim Holtz using the Cracked Pistachio and Wild Honey Distress Inks. Then adding a layer of Cosmic Shimmer Ultra Sparkle Paste and allowing to dry.

Both word dies are from the Works and the 'With' is part of an alphabet set. The card was finished by adding some Green and Purple translucent drops and gems from my stash.

I hope you like this card and thanks for stopping by.

Hello Tulips

 


Hi, today I have a card to share with you that uses the free gift of stamps, dies and an embossing folder that came in Issue 213 of Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine.

The background panel was made by dabbing a piece of white card into puddles of Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick and Wilted Violet Distress Oxides. Some splatters of gold watercolour were also added. When the ink had dried the panel was then embossed and the raised edges were then sanded back to reveal the white of the paper. 

The centre circle was then cut out and a piece of vellum was added behind. The circle from the centre was then added to the card base, behind where it would have originally been. A strip of white card was embossed and added over the same place it would have been on the background panel and edged with two strips of gold mirror card.

The tulips were then cut out of white card and coloured using the Distress Oxides, with the addition of Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint for the leaves. The smallest die elements were cut out of gold mirror card. The tulips were then assembled and added to the card using glue for the leaves and stems and 3D Foam for the flowers.

The sentiment was stamped onto black card and heat embossed using gold powder. The card was then finished with an abundance of dual tones pearls. 

I hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.

Hobby Art Felt Deer Decoration

 


Hello, today I have a Christmas decoration to share with you that uses a deer stencil from Hobby Art.

For the deer I added some Bondaweb onto the back of some brown felt. The deer stencil was then used to trace out the image onto the backing of the Bondaweb (make sure that the image is facing the opposite way to what you want in the final result).

The deer was then ironed onto the middle of a piece of Linen and was then stitched in place using a sewing machine.

The wreath was made by taking an embroidery hoop and wrapping some coloured raffia around the outside hoop and securing this in place with double sided tape. The linen was then added into the hoop and the hoop was tightened.

The ribbon was made using some ribbon from Gold Decor and a wooden button, which was tied onto the bow with string. The mistletoe is part of an ornament from the pound shop that I took apart and the silver twigs are from some silver leaf decorations for the tree. 

The silver snowflakes are some Glitterations stickers from Docrafts and some white pearls, both of which were glued into place using fabric glue.  

I hope you like this Christmas decoration and thanks for visiting.
