Winter Foliage

 Good Morning all, i hope you had a good weekend and the weather wasn't too wild. 

Well once again its time for a new challenge over at Make My Monday  the theme for the next two weeks chosen by me is:

WINTER FOLIAGE
Ivy, Holly, pine cones, mistletoe, any greenery that you get in the winter months.

Ive gone with a branch on a Christmas tree, built up with die cut pine leaves.



A5 white linen cardbase.  I then cut a piece of white linen card slightly smaller than my card front and using evergreen bough DI through a stencil i stenciled a light patterned, with it darker and lighter and then inked around the outside edge, stamped my sentiment in black and added the panel to the cardfront.

I found the evergreen bough distress ink in a draw never used although i must have bought it years ago - its now my favourite green ink as its not too dark and has a nice blue tinge. 

I die cut lots of pine branches from green inked cardstock.  I arranged them on the front like one bough on a christmas tree, i also added some gold mirri die cut mistletoe to add more interest.  Then i arranged my die cut fairy lights.  I cut them first from white card and coloured with a grey marker then i cut just the light bulbs from small scraps of glitter card which id had left over from another project. 


Close up, sadly the photo doesn't do the jellybean glitter card justice, when the light hits it it is soo sparkly. 

Items Used:
Elizabeth crafts pine branch die
Cheerylyn pine branch die
Memory box mistletoe die
Fairylight die set
Jellybean glitter card

Alphabet Challenge - Q is for Quads

 Good Morning everyone, another week passed by - where are they going?

So its time for a new challenge over at Alphabet Challenge  the theme for the next fortnight is 

Q - QUADS
Use 4 of something

I went for 4 background panels.


I had actually die cut the panels from left over off cuts of pearlised cardstock.  I then dry embossed the squares with a circle embossing folder.  I then coloured them with a mix of aqua tints in green, blue and purple.  The pearl of the card still shows through the inks really well.  I added the inks to a mat, sprayed with water and dipped the card into it. 

I mounted the panels onto silver mirror card  (hard to get a decent photo of the silver), and mounted onto a 6x6 white cardblank.  I die cut the Christmas sentiment from silver mirror card, the circle that comes out the middle i decided to emboss and glue back in.  This i mounted onto a die cut circle and then over the background panels.

Die cut a white snowflake, added a very blingy dazzler to finish.



This one was made in the same way but i had die cut the left over pearl card into rectangle panels instead.  Finished card is 5x7"


Items Used:

MFT Christmas sentiment die
MFT stitched rectangle die set
Wonky stitched square die
Wonk stitched circle die
Poppystamps Marius Stitched snowflake die
Sizzix circle embossing folder
CraftUk Ltd white cardstock
Silver mirri card
Spectrum Noir aqua tints

Winter Blues

 Good Morning Everyone. 

Its time for a new challenge over at Cardz4guyz  and the theme for the next fortnight is:

WINTER BLUES
A winter card in shades of blue and of course for a boy/man


I decided to do a snowflake emboss resist background for my polar bears





6x6 white card base, my blue panel takes it upto 7" wide as it over hangs the edges of the base card. Something i do now and then and it adds interest and i didn't want to hide all the embossed snowflakes.  

I first stamped the snowflakes onto white card using embossing ink and added a clear embossing powder.  I then inked over the top using distress inks in blue tones.  I splashed on some water and dabbed with a tissue, this gives more interest.  I then rubbed the ink of the embossed snowflakes with a tissue - the embossing powder resists the ink so easily wipes off.  I then added this panel onto navy cardstock and then the base card. 

I die cut my polar bears from white cardstock, added navy card behind the snowflakes in the bear, added on top of a die cut silver mirror snowflake and then a circle cut from vellum.  Add the scarf to the baby bear which i inked with distress oxide.  Stamped greeting onto the base card.   


Just a close up showing the bears better.

Items Used:
Craft stamper mag stamp - the snowflake
Tattered lace polar bears die
Spellbinders lrg snowflake die
Wonky stitched circle dies
Distress Inks - peacock feathers, everygreen bough, chipped shappire
Distress Oxide ink - cracked pistachio
White card is CardcraftUk
Silver & Navy card is payper box.

Using Stencils

Good Morning

Well time for another new challenge over at Make My Monday  with the theme for the next fortnight being

USING STENCILS

So basically use any stencil on your project, for either background or focal point.  I dug out a lattice style stencil and my wink of stella pens and had fun. 



7x7 White cardblank.   For the background i embossed my stencil using my big shot, i put it through on the die embossing sandwich with a rubber mat, the rubber mat then pushed the card through the holes in the stencil.  I then added my wink of stellas pens over the top.   I found it easier to add some of the wink ink to my mat and picking up with a flat head brush and brushing over the card, blending where the colours meet. For a bit of interest i stamped on some tiny birds & butterflies. 

For the topper panel i used heat embossing. Using blending foam i added sticky embossing ink onto my stencil, i then put it ink face down onto a piece of white card and transferred the ink from the stencil onto the card.  I then added clear embossing powder and heated.  The embossing powder acted like a resist on the lines then making it easy to colour inside the lines.  As i wanted my squares to have different colours in each square i found this a better way than trying to add the inks direct through the stencil. I then added the same colour wink of stella pens as i used on the background.


I attached both panels to black card and then onto the card front. Stamped greeting die cut into circles.  Butterflies die cut from white and black card and layered together.  Gems to finish.  


Just a close up.  I also doodled stitching with a black fine pen around the edges of the squares.  White gel pen highlights. Sadly the photos down show the amazing sparkle the wink of stella pens give.  



And this little A6 card i made with another piece i had made with the same stencil and didn't use in the end.  This time i used the stencil in the traditional way, using tape, I stuck the stencil onto white card and then sponged ink through it using the same wink of stella pens.  Layered onto black card, stamped greeting, butterfly and glitter gems dots. 

Items Used:
Lattice Mylar Stencil
Wink Of Stella pens - red, orange, yellow, mint
Clearly besotted sentiments
Sizzix butterfly dies
Large stitched square dies
Wonky square dies
stitched circle dies

So if you fancy joining in and finding out what everyone else comes up with using their stencils please do hop over to MMM

Thank you for stopping by and all your recent visits and comments.  I hope you all have a good week as we head into November. Emmax

House of Horrors

Good Morning everyone.  

So today im sharing something a bit different with a 3 dimensional project.  Im not really into halloween but am into all things mystical - witches, vampires, Cornish Piskeys so had great fun decorating this house shaped printer tray.

I bought a pack of halloween emphemra from ebay, containing lots of different products including tim holtz and combined with items ive collected over the years in my stash.  I decided to give each room of the house a different theme.  The attic isn't yet finished, im still looking for the perfect items which i have in mind. 



Overall Size: 12x7" (20x30 cm).  I first added touches of sand texture paste for the front edges and through a brick stencil on the outside sides of the house.  Once dry covered it all with black gesso. I then highlighted with dry brushing silver acrylic paint on top to give a kind of moonlight feel. 

I cut a blue and gold foil paper, inked the edges and glued to the back of each room of the house as wallpaper. I then bit by bit built up the rooms with items until i was happy, more details below on each room.  I then die cut spiders & webs from black cardstock, again added silver paint and added these to the front of the house.  



The Copse Bride room - i added a grunge board skull & cross bones to the back of the room, my immortal soul tab on top. A vintage wedded couple image, grave stone, skull, spider and white flowers inked with a touch of red. I added a black inked heart in the background. 


Close up, love the skull, so much detail in it



A close up on the spider web, see the fly? - Morrisons supermarket Halloween isle, i toned it down a bit with black ink but think it looks quite realistic. 



Lots of bottles of potions for the witches to use, ive built them up in the background using digital images printed out and sealed with mod podge.  For my real bottles in some i added a drop of alcohol ink just to stain the glass, in the red one there ive added lots of red alcohol ink and glued the cork lid in - a bottle of blood of course.  Micro beads, and glitter in another bottle.  Bits of twine and handmade tatty labels.  One bottle has tipped over and lost its cork stopper and that pesky fly is about. 


Is it an Angel, A Cherub or a nightmare?! I added wings which are actually a die cut angel wings but were the perfect size for the Tim Holtz doll, i also added black ink to tone down the white.  

The bats are sleeping peacefully while the spooky hand carries away an eyeball to its hidden lair.  Not another fly!  My eye balls are digital images, printed out and covered with glossy accents.  The hand reminds me of 'thing' in the Addams Family.



The Witches Lair -  2 Witches over seeing their latest potion.  The cauldron is chipboard - i painted it with black gesso, adding the gesso thick in places to give it texture.  In the backgound a pale whispy girl - Is it a ghost?!  More spiders and cobwebs.  Label in the front.  I added a metal bat at the top of this room too, being too shiny i again added black gesso to dull it down. 


More potions, i used sequins for my mermaid scales bottle, another spider and a little key...... maybe the key unlocks the attic...... time will tell....



This shows the outside wall of the house.  I added sand texture paste through a brick stencil, the sand texture gives a more realistic look to the bricks i think.  Once dry covered with black gesso and dry brushed on red and orange imagination crafts starlight paints and then just a light touch of silver acrylic paint. 

Items Used:
Tim Holtz idea'logy range
Mini bottles and various metal, chipboard charms & ephemera
spider & web die
Daisytrail 'steampunk emporium' digikit
Serif craft artist
Imagination crafts starlight paints
Brick stencil
Sand texture paste
Black gesso

Into the Woods



Good Morning everyone.

Once again its time for a new challenge over at cardz4guyz with the theme for the next fortnight being:

INTO THE WOODS
Anything you find in a wood or forest, think flora, fauna or maybe a teddy bears picnic, or is there a pixie hiding among the trees.  It could be an everyday card or a Christmas card but must be for a man/boy.  

Ive gone with a Christmas card as its that time of year and although i did make this with a man in mind i think its unisex really and could be done in any colours.  Ive gone with green & gold.



4.5x6" white linen cardblank.  I made a background using distress oxide inks and let dry.  I then cut the tree background die from white linen card, this i attached over my background and mounted on the card front.

I then die cut the 2 deer from gold pearl cardstock, i felt they were a bit lost against the background so added a die cut circle of vellum to just soften the background for them.  I snipped a bit off the bottom of the vellum and placed level with the bottom of the background.  Afterwards i thought it kind of had a snow globe look.

I then die cut my sentiments and mounted onto more of the gold pearl card and added to the top.  The sentiments actually have the fishtail on both ends but i snipped off the left side.  



Just a close up and this shows the gold pearl better. 

Items Used:
MFT deer love die set
Concord & Ninth 'season of cheer' die set
Wonky stitched circle dies
Christmas Tree panel die - brand unknown
Distress Oxide inks - cracked pistachio, peacock feathers & twisted lime
White linen cardstock craftUk ltd
Gold Pearl cardstock - payper box

I hope you all have a good week. Emma

Floral Shutter Birthday card

Good Morning everyone.

Today im sharing a shutter card  i made for a friends 70th birthday.  I went with purple as the main colour as i know she loves purple and lots of flowers. 



A4 Shutter card, made from white card and tattered lace shutter die set.  I first die cut lots of flowers from a sheet of kraft card covered with purple foiled swirls & purple mirri card. I then shaped and glued the flower layers together to build up lots of dimension.  I also die cut lots of foliage from green inked card.

From white card i cut panels to fit the card front and dry embossed them, well actually debossed as i liked the look of it, i added a touch of green pen and then green glitter to the debossed flower centres.  I went with green as a contrast to all the purple.  I inked around the edges with purple distress ink and attached to the card front. 

I computer printed my sentiment in purple and black and die cut into an oval, inked the edges with purple ink and lots of purple glitter dots around the edge - i know she LOVES her glitter.  I then arranged my flowers and foliage.  Gold gems to finish my flowers. 


Showing it from a slightly different angle


This shows the purple foiled kraft card better and the true colour.

Just showing the card from above when its stood up on display. 


and as many of you know i also like to add detail to the back of my cards.  Here i used a pale purple paper so could easily write my greeting on it and 3 purple cats as she also loves her cats and this is my 3 furry gals - Tilly leader of the gang, Jess following the leader and little Suki being naughty😀

items used:
Tattered lace shutter die set
Daisy flower die set
Cat die set
Foliage die set
Spellbinders Mbossilities folder
B&M Vintage Baroque foiled kraft card pad
B&M Memory lane paper pad
Chocolate box purple mirri card

Number Games

Wow cant believe how fast October is going, time for another new challenge over at

With the theme for the next two weeks being:

NUMBER GAMES
Use One or More numbers


I decided to go with a Christmas card and dig out an old Tim Holtz Vintage Noel bigz die, but ive also used a number stencil in the background for a more subtle use of numbers. 


A5 White cardblank.  I first used texture paste to stencil my numbers onto a piece of card just smaller than the cardfront.  Once dry i used green, blue & purple imagination crafts starlight paint to build up a dark sky for my scene - sponging on a couple of light layers of paint works better to blend the colours than one thick layer.  When the light hits the paints and the texture paste it really shimmers.  I added the panel to my cardfront and then die cut a curved border from white card and added to the base as a snow bank for my characters. 

I stamped the characters with black archival ink on my usual craftUk white card and then coloured them with alcohol markers.  I added glossy accents to their eyes, touches of glitter glue and enamel drops to embellish them. I added them to the card front, i added a touch of shadow under them on the snow. 

 I then die cut the greeting and number 25 from white card, covered with white glitter and then added to the card front. 




Items Used:

Paperartsy Zinski Art stamps ZA19
Number stencil
Tim Holtz bigz die 'Vintage Noel'
Concord & Ninth season of cheer die
Stitched border die
Imagination crafts starlight paints - blue, green, orchid
Silver gilding wax
Alcohol pens.

O for Owl

Good Morning everyone.

Its time for a new challenge over at Alphabet Challenge - the theme for the next fortnight is:

O - OWL

So a good theme suitable for many occasions and any age.  I made a card for someone just starting university to wish them luck. 


6x6 white scalloped cardbase. I cut a square of white linen card to fit my base and die cut a star circle frame into it.  I then stamped the greeting.  I added this panel with foam tape onto gold glitter card and then black pearlised card and then the card base. 

I then die cut my tattered lace owl die from black pearlised card, after poking all the little pieces out I glued it onto white card and cut around the outside edge.  I then gave it a curve before adding to the card with glue gel.



Just a close up on my owl, you can pick up the gold glitter card a bit better at this angle too. 

Items Used:
Tattered lace 'Barn owl in flight' die 
Star Circle die (unbranded)
Crafters companion sentiment stamp
Jellybean champagne gold glitter card
Black pearlised card - payper box

Triangles

Good Morning everyone.

So its once again time for a new challenge over at cardz4guyz

The theme for the next fortnight is:

TRIANGLES

Something a bit different. Luckily i had for my birthday this set of Altenew Shattered Triangle dies so had a play for their first outing.


White Linen DL cardblank.  I first made a brusho/pixie powder background in blues, greens & oranges.  I then die cut lots of triangles from it and then the top layer from white card and glued them together.  I arranged them on a strip of white linen cardstock, layered that onto a strip of my background and added to the cardfront.

Stamped sentiment to finish.  Simples😊


Close up.  This would also be a good design to use up all those little left over backing papers or i was thinking Christmas trees?



Items Used:
Altenew Shattered Triangle die set
Brushos
Cosmic Shimmer pixie powders
CraftUk white linen card
Sentiment stamp

Reindeer at Sunset

 Good Morning everyone. 

So today im sharing my first Christmas cards of the season.  I saw this MFT deer die last Christmas but had already made my cards so had to have it for this years cards. Ive teamed it with my old favourite of the MB circle burst die. 



I first took some pre embossed ivory card from payper box and scored it to make my cardblank (15x12cm).  I then die cut the circle burst into the card front.  I added my insert in the middle of the card from a beautiful gold pearl paper, so it shimmers and shines through the aperture on the front of the card.  The cardstock is a good 300gsm so strong enough to stand up as a base card even with a big hole in the middle. 

I stamped my greeting onto a off cut of the ivory card and mounted onto gold pearl and added to the bottom of the card.  I then cut lots of deer from left over scraps of card coloured with brushos , inks, and added them to the front as if standing on my sentiment strip. 

I then used stickles glitter glue to add a sparkly nose and dots on my sentiment strip to finish.


This photo shows how the aperture goes through to the insert, i only glued my insert in to the spine so that it has movement.



Different colours - been using up all those little bits of left over inked card.






This version uses gold mirror card that i coloured with alcohol inks

this one shows the mirror card better, using various colours of alcohol inks on it you get a lovely mottled effect.  This set is a bonus for me as flat for posting, as most of you know i do love my dimension.  

Items Used:
MFT Deer Love die set
Memory box circle burst die (large)
LOTV sentiment stamp
Gold pearl paper & Ivory embossed card - payper box
Tim Holtz alcohol inks
Brushos & pixie powders
Stickles - black and red

Well now im back from my holiday its Christmas crafting full steam ahead.  Not sure where the year has gone.

Make My Monday - Animals

Good Morning all.  I hope you all had a good weekend.  

So once again its time for a new challenge over at Make My Monday and the theme is

ANIMALS

So one of my favourite themes and I dug out the katzelkraft farm animal stamps again, this is a brilliant set for me with my family and lots of friends being farmers or even just living in the countryside. 



I first stamped my pig stamp and masked him and then with more stamping and masking stamped a small flock of sheep behind the pig. I doodled in some ground and grass for them to all stand on and then very simply coloured with distress oxide inks and water.  I stamped the pig once more and after colouring i cut out his body and decoupaged onto the topper with glue gel.  I mounted onto black card and added a white die cut frame over the top with foam tape.

I then made a backing paper with the same oxide inks i used on the pig and water.  Once dry i cut to size, mounted onto black card and then the 6x6 white card blank. I added my topper at a angle and then some chit chat stickers saying ' Its good to be different'



Close up.  I added glossy accents to the the eyes.

Items Used:
Katzelkraft farm animals stamp set

Distress Oxide inks - fossilized amber, pistachio, raspberry, candied apple, peacock feathers, salty ocean

Its time for a new challenge over at Cardz4guyz with the theme being

AUTUMN/FALL LEAVES

So once again i used the stamp set that came with creative stamping magazine issue 60.  



XL DL card made by folding white linen A4 card in half lengthwise.   Using a multicolour ink pad i stamped the 3 different leaf images onto white linen card. Once dry i die cut into wonky stitched circles and mounted onto circles die cut from dark maroon cardstock.  I cut maroon and white card to fit my base, i used the same ink and the splatter stamp around the edges to tie it in with my leaf toppers and attached to the card front. 

I added my leaf topper circles to the base with foam tape.  I then added lots of little enamel drops around my leafs with viva paper pens in dark red, yellow & orange to just add some interest.   


Close up of the middle circle, i used black ink to stamp one of the quotes from the stamp set.  It says 'Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower'

Autumn Colours

Good Morning all, its once again time for a new challenge over at 

Make My Monday   with the theme this fortnight being

COLOURS OF AUTUMN/ FALL

For my birthday i was given a copy of the creative stamping magazine, first time ive ever had it, it came with a beautiful set of autumnal stamps - right up my street so i didn't hang around to try them out, i made this card for a friends birthday that was last week. 

I dug out an old bobunny paper pad full of autumn papers.  I first decided which paper i wanted for the background, i wanted the 2 large flowers on it to be visable so used it on its side.  (the recipient was probably eagle eyed to notice the tiny script in the background on its side - something i only noticed after making the card!)  I mounted this paper onto dark maroon card and the white 6x6 cardblank. 

I stamped my squirrel 3 times, once onto white card and then onto 2 different papers, i die cut the white one into a stitched circle.  Then cut out all of the dark paper one and glued it onto the white one and then i cut the orange one and again added over the top with glue gel to give him some shape.

I stamped the sentiment onto white card and die cut into a circle, i then mounted both circles onto maroon and then the cardbase.  I then die cut lots of little leaves from papers and the maroon card and arranged them around my squirrel.  Enamel viva drops then added in co-ordinating colours. 



Close up of the squirrel.  After paper piecing him i added a little bit of grey pen for shadow and white gel pen to his eye and nose. 

Items Used:
Bobunny papers 'Autumn Song'
Creative Stamping magazine issue 60 stamps
Stitched & plain circle dies
Spellbinders 'little leaf' die set
Viva paper pens - orange, yellow & red

Please do pop over to MMM to see what everyone comes up with and join in with this fabulous theme.

M is for Monkey

Good Morning all, i hope you are having a good week. 

Its time for a new challenge over at Alphabet Challenge   with the theme being


M -MONKEY

So I dug out the Tim Holtz hipsters animals stamps and just my old brusho's.



I first made a background sheet with green and orange brushos and sprinkled in a little pixie powder, i then added lots of chunky sea salt and left to dry overnight.  It leaves this amazing pattern, this works better when the brusho's are really wet, if you add the salt when its beginning to dry you only get a slight pattern as the salt needs to draw the water into it to get the effect. 

I die cut a Polaroid frame from white card, mounted it onto black card to frame.  I die cut the centre from my brusho card.  I then stamped and hand cut my monkey and added him to the frame.  I cut out a second head and decoupaged it with glue gel.  I kept the monkey white as i wanted him to stand out against the colourful background.  I just added some glossy accents to his glasses. 

I added a panel of white mounted onto black onto the card base.  I added a panel of my background paper at a wonky angle and added the Monkey topper on top. Stamped sentiment and black enamel dots to finish. 



Close up, you can really see the pattern the sea salt leaves.  

Items Used:
Tim Holtz Hipster Animal stamps
Sizzix Polaroid die set
Brusho's - leaf green & gambage
Pixie powder - red
Chunky sea salt
Crafters companion sentiment stamp
CraftUk White Hammered Card
Black card - payper box
WRMK black enamel dots
