Christmas is coming!

I am getting ready for a Christmas market and am trying to use products I already own. This is my first ever bottle gift tag. I think I will make a few a bit shorter as it only suits some of the taller bottles. It won't hurt to have a few choices.

It is made with all Stampendous stamps and dies.

Pink Ink Art Stamps

Here are some cards I created using this range of stamps. I you would like for me to get them in foe you please respond in the comments section or e-mail me.

 NERISSA coloured with Pixie powders. Added colours with markers and the shaells are made from paper clay which have been coloured with embossing powders.

 This stamp set is called CLASSY BIRD.
I coloured her with markers.

 The next three cards I used LION. This first one I used Pixie Powders then
I touched it up with white gel pen and markers.

 This one was done the same way as the first but different colours of Pixie powders was used.

This last example I used markers and pencils.

I hope you are all crafting happily out there and getting a start on your Christmas cards.

Off to market I go.

I made this card holder to display my cards at the markets. Have you any idea how big a pain it is to sew vinyl? It works great though.

It holds 40 cards. I take the cards out and roll it up around the curtain rods which are at the top and bottom of the holder.

Happy crafting,

Goth style

My oldest son came to me and asked for me to make a card for his friends wedding. They are very unique people (in a good way) and like goth style images. So, elegant goth. Okay, here is the finished card.

My son said I exceeded the brief and he is happy with it.

Exploding Teapot

Our monthly class took place again yesterday but I only have my inspiration teapot to show as everyone else wanted to take theirs home to finish them. I will post more pictures as they come to me.

I must admit the spout and handle were a bit tricky. Deciding on what to put on the inside panels was the longest process. In the end I used all Stampendous stamps. I need to do at least one more without it being as rushed.

You can purchase the pattern for the teapot from Tanya Bell.

Baby prams.

I belong to an Australian card making group and shared a tutorial I made on how to make baby prams out of cardboard. Mind you it is not my original idea but of course I have tweeked it for myself. I thought I would post it here as well but the computer Gods won't allow it so you will have to go to my Facebook page to see it. Here are some pics of the prams.

Now here is a pic of a baby in a pram.

The babys I purchased don't have dummys in their mouths but are awfully cute.

This shows the key chain which could always be removed but makes a nice gift with the baby pram.

I know these are nothing to do with card making but the prams are Paper Crafts and the babys go so well with them.

Happy crafting,

Class projects

Hi everyone.

I just wanted to post some projects my students and I created for our last class, July 2019.

The first card was made by Terry.

The next card was made by Glenda.

Both cards were made using  the Stampendous Clear Mermaid and Die Set. Both Terry and Glenda used Dreamweaver stencils for the backgrounds, coloured them with ink and then die cut them. Terry chose to use a sentiment from the set. Both cards have the die cut background mounted with dimensional foam and then attached to the card base. The decorative extras were then added to the die cut background.

The next project was made with a Sizzix die I purchased specifically for this class but I can order one for you if you want one.

These cute frames can be clipped together in any configuration you want. You can always cut more and add them later. The blue set was made by me whilst the next one was made by Terry.

Don't forget that if you would like to join a class just contact me and I'm sure we can fit you into a class or start a new one at a time convenient to you.

Happy crafting,

Fairy New Year!

My Friday class started the New Year  on a strong note with the beautiful fairy cards that I designed using the Enchanted Forest Star Dust die from Crafters Companion.

This first card was designed with the Star Dust Fairy and some Stampendous stamps and dies. The fairy was coloured with pencils and her outfit was Antique Pink embossing powder from Stampendous. The leaves were coloured with Chameleon markers and the background was created with Palette green ink and a soft brush.

The second card was cut out and the design hand drawn. The background was stamped with the same leaf stamps as the first card but coloured with pencils. The sentiment is a Gemini die from Crafters Companion.

 On this third card I used a Martha Stewart punch to get the small flowers and another puch for the tiny butterflies. All three cards have vellum behind their wings.

See more of the Enchanted Forest series on the website. There are stamps. dies. stamp and die sets as well as some adhesive images for foiling.

Happy crafting,
