My Favourite Place !

Here is a clean and simple card featuring stamps by Alice Palace via Crafty Individuals. This fits the March Challenge from the Crafty Individuals Blog whose title this month is 'The Animal World' and also the Less Is More Challenge for this week (215) which has to be one layer and feature 'Animals'

I started with a 5 x 5 inch white card blank and the stamp of the geese which I used to make a mask.  I then stamped the geese in Memento black ink and masked off before overstamping with a swirl background in Memento tangelo ink.

The card also fits the bill for the AAA Cards Blog challenge too !

I used an orange and grey alcohol ink marker to colour in parts of the geese as shown and finished with the words stamped in Versafine black.

Desk Frenzy ?


Ohh my God !!  The shambles that is my workdesk this Wednesday.  Just as it was abandoned following my last craft session.

How untidy is that ?  I should be ashamed but it's always like this actually.

Any way it's a while since I showed it and it's also worth having a look at others desks along on WOYWW blog.  This one is for week 301. Quite entertaining !

Tree of Love ......

Here we go with another Card Candi card !  Started with a 5 x 5 inch card blank and then matted the background onto blue card before applying to the card.

Colour theme this time is blue and pink with some Glossy Accents added over the flowers to highlight !.

I have embellished with some thin pink grosgrain ribbon and a bow applied with super sticky tape.

The sentiment is by Papertrey Ink and is stamped in Memento black ink on some card coloured pink with an alcohol ink marker.  It has been trimmed out and applied on foam pads to finish.

Luck is good .......

Another Card Candi card.  This time for Good Luck.  I have used a Tim Holtz spots stamp with brown chalk ink and infilled with a pink Posca pen.

The card is a 5 x 5 inch white blank and I have matted onto pink card before applying to the blank. Edges were enhanced with brown Versamagic chalk ink,

Some distress Stickles have been added to the flowers and the label (Papertrey Ink) is stamped in sepia Archival Ink on a scrap of card, edged with more of the same ink and applied on foam pads.

Topiary Thanks ......

This thank you card was made using Card Candi from Craftwork Cards.  I have accumulated loads of it so thought I would use some.  I started with a 5 x 5 inch white card blank.

I have enhanced the card with coloured glaze, swirl stamping with Versamagic chalk ink, a paper ribbon and pink pearl cabochon.

The 'Thank You' is from Papertrey Ink and is stamped in black Versafine.

The world in a new light !

Here is a bit of arty upcycling.  The box had originally contained cosmetics and actually has an acetate cover which I have not used.  This one is very blingy and was so difficult to photograph too !

I decorated the outside of the box with embossed card cut to size and applied on the back, top & sides.

The inside back of the box was stamped with a wavy stamp in Versamark ink and this was then heat embossed with Blonde Moments spring tropic lustre embossing powder. The inside back was then covered with some flower sequins and more of the beads in two strips.

I had some small scallop shells which I transformed with a couple of coats of metallic green acrylic paint.  I then stuck some pearlescent green/violet beads in each with hot melt glue.  The shells were applied with more hot melt glue as shown.

The image (don't know who from) was stamped in Memento black ink on white card, trimmed out and coloured with Alcohol ink markers.  I then applied some self adhesive cabochons and Stickles glitter glue.  this was mounted on some greyboard to raise the image.

The words were pre-printed and were coloured with AI's again and stuck into the shells.  Final touches were to add a few undersea metal charms at various levels with more hot glue which fits in with the challenge on City Crafter Challenge for this week which is 'Love Metal'.
