Beautiful World

Afternoon, how was your weekend? We had a busy time, very tiring, but it was lovely weekend visiting the eldest at Uni.

 

Sharing a recent make using Stamps By Me stamp sets – Foliage stamp set and How Beautiful sentiment stamp.

 

 

Step by Step

1. Cut a piece of white card stock to fit the 8×8″ card blank. Used Dylusions paints and a brayer to create the background.

4.  Stamped the sentiment, Stamps By Me – How Beautiful stamp set, using black Archival ink onto the oval. Matted onto the larger black oval.

5. Used a white Derwent Graphik paint liner pen to draw sketchy lines around the leave images.

Northern Lights

Afternoon, sharing one of my makes using the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas clear stamps.

Step by Step

1. Cut an oval from white card stock, using Tattered Lace Oval die set.

2. Used Distress Inks and a blending tool to apply 3 colours, pink, turquoise and yellow, to create the background.

3. Used Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool around the edge of the oval. Took the Black Soot in towards the centre fading the colour as it moved closer to the centre.

4. Sprinkled/splashed water onto the background. Allowed the water to penetrate the ink and blotted with kitchen roll.

5. Once the background was completely dry, stamped the Christmas tree and text, from the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas stamp sets, using Versamark and added black glitter embossing powder, I also used an anti-static bag on the background before stamping. Heat set the embossing powder.

6. Used a white Derwent Paint Liner pen to add faux stitching around the edge of the background.

7. Die cut an oval from white card stock and add faux stitching around the edge using a black Sakura Micron pen.

8. Cut an oval card blank from black card stock, embellished with faux stitching using a white Derwent Paint Liner pen.

9. Matted and layered the white oval and background onto the card blank using 3D foam pads.

Digi Choosday – Week 39 – Anything Goes

 

Morning, it’s Tuesday and the start of a new challenge at Digi Choosday

The theme is – Anything Goes.

I’ve made a Xmas wall hanging for this weeks challenge, using the new release from Polkadoodles Festive Christmas available on CD-ROM.

 

Step by Step

1. Using a graphics program, I use My Craft Studio, I choose a one of the pre-designed circle frames from the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas collection and resized. I added additional elements from the embellishments section, the snowflakes and script, and altered the brightness to make them white, then altered the opacity so background would show through. I also did the same for the reindeer and the text.

2. Die cut the circle, using a Tattered Lace circle die, and matted onto decorative circle, cut from white card stock using a Spellbinders die.

3. Printed a co-ordinating paper, also from the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas collection, matted onto white card stock.

4. Matted the focal design using 3D foam tape.

5. Embellished with some snowflakes, die cut from white card stock using a Tattered Lace die set. Added some clear flat back gems to the snowflakes.

6. Used some white ribbon to create a hanging loop.
