Wild Flowers

Afternoon, sharing another make from my master board make and Sweet Poppy Stencils.



Step by Step

Created the background using Dylusion paints with a brayer, plastic card and old lid, on white card stock.

Trimmed background to size, used Sweet Poppy Stencils black glossy dimensional paste with the Wild Flowers stencil, also from Sweet Poppy Stencils. 

Created a 5×7″ card blank from white textured card stock.

Cut away a small piece of card from the front edge of the card blank.

Used black Archival ink and the Script stamp from Indigo Blu to create the background on the card blank.

Used black card stock and a Tonic punch to create the border piece.

Attached the punched border to the card blank using red super sticky DS tape.

Inked the edge of the stencilled image with Black Soot Distress ink.

Matted the stencilled image onto black card stock.

Adhered to the card blank using 3D foam pads.

Again, I’ve not added a sentiment yet because I’m creating a stash of blank cards ready to add an appropriate sentiment when needed.

Afternoon, sharing a make with Sweet Poppy Stencils and a Dylusions paints.



Step by Step

Cut a circle, using Tattered Lace Essential Circle dies, from a master board, created using Dylusion paints with a brayer, plastic card & an old lid on white card stock.

Using Sweet Poppy’s Thistle stencil with Sweet Poppy’s black gloss dimensional paste.

Cut more circles, from black and white card stock to create the matts & card blank.

Once the paste was dry, I matted on to black and white circles.

I’ve not added a sentiment yet, trying to build up a stash of pre-made cards with no sentiment and then I can add as necessary to suit the occasion. 

I’ve made several other cards from the master board also using Sweet Poppy Stencils which I will be sharing in the future.

Morning, thank goodness it’s Friday!!

Sharing a make using the remaining card from the master board I create yesterday. I bought lots of new crafty stash at the Crafting Live show in Doncaster, had a brilliant time as always. So wish I was at the Crafting Live show at Sandown this weekend!! Part of the new crafty haul includes some new Sweet Poppy stencils, just lurvvvve this new dragonfly stencil. I used black glossy dimensional paste, from Sweet Poppy, and whilst the paste was still wet added various delicious Sweet Poppy glitters, in various blues, greens, pinks etc. sadly, my photography doesn’t show the glitter at its best! The sentiment is from a text stamp set by Clearly Besotted stamps.

One down, yes it’s Xmas card …..

Oh my word, a Xmas card already!!! I always leave my Xmas cards to the last minute so will I do better this year? Who knows but one down already so it’s a start lol


Sweet Poppy Stencils - Baubles


I used the SP stencil Holly Baubles with the SP white dimensional paste on white linen effect cardstock. Whilst the paste is still wet I used various SP glitters, the Sweet Poppy glitters are so so yummy.

Using the same white linen effect cardstock I stamped a sentiment, from a Clearly Besotted stamp set, using Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder. I cut the sentiment out using a die, also from Clearly Besotted, and edged the banner with a gold pen.

Once the stencil paste was dry, I matted and layered onto gold mirri card and white linen effect cardstock, and finally adhered to an A5 card blank, also made from the white linen effect cardstock.

Floral Tag Card

Morning everyone, hope you had a good weekend? Quiet weekend here, I’m still not sleeping well so Sunday I spent most of the day watching The X Files. Hubby bought me the box set, which is 202 episodes and the 2 movies, don’t think I’ll get to watch everything before the new series starts in February, which I’m so excited to see I lurveeeeeed The X Files 🙂

Anyway enough about The X Files, back to crafting. Here’s a tag card I made recently, I used the very elegant Sweet Poppy Stencil, Leafy Flower, as the focal image for the tag card.


Floral Tag Card, Sweet Poppy Stencil - Leafy Flower


Step by Step

1. Create a background, using watercolour card and spray inks. I made my own spray inks, by diluting the acrylic fluid inks with water in a mini mister. 

2. Use SP Stencils Dimensional Paste in Glossy White with the SP Leafy Flower stencil and allowed to dry naturally.

3. Stamp around the edge of the tag, with an Indigo Blu stamp, using a Memento ink pad.

4. Stamp a sentiment, from a Clearly Besotted stamp set, using a Versamark ink pad and heat emboss with white detail embossing powder.

5. Use a white marker to dot around the edge of the tag.

6. Use a Versamark ink pad around the edge of the tag and heat emboss with white detail embossing powder.

7. Adhere to a dark blue tag card blank, punch a hole with a cropadile on the front of the tag card.


To create the tag shape I use a Tim Holtz stencil to draw round and then trim the additional layers using the tag shape as a guide.
