A Little Birdie Told Me


Hi everyone, today for my DT inspiration with CraftConsortium I using one of my favourite paper pads called Bloom Beautiful, I just love the colours, designs and pretty birds in this collection.


I started by matting and layering various papers from the pad, tattering them at the edges with my scissors for a shabby feel. I complimented this with some lace and ribbon.


I added sections of a Die Cut Doily behind my image and tattered layers which I heat embossed with a Pearl Embossing Powder.


My pretty little birds were fussy cut and added amongst my flowers to compliment the design on the paper.


Finishing off with lots of bling and a tattered banner with a stamped sentiment.

Forever Together


Hi everyone, today for my DT post with Cherish The Memory I am sharing some more inspiration using the stunning Studio Light Summer Feelings collection. I love the beautiful tones, the Die Cut images and pretty shabby feel you can make on your crafty products with this collection which suits a variety of occasions on cards or scrapbook layouts.


I started by tattering a sheet of paper from my 6x6 pad to use as my base layer and also tattered a couple sheets to use as layers on my card adding extra detail with Cheery Lynn's Sophie's Heart Tiny Doily, lace, netting and twine fibres.


My Ribbon flower was added as a finish touch to compliment the pretty dress and a collection of Die Cut images, pearls, glass beads and micro beads.

Songbirds


Hi everyone thanks for stopping by, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing some more inspiration using their fabulous new Vintage Dies.



My card has lots of layers using coordinating papers from Pion Design. I started by Die cutting my layers and adding Gilding Wax around the edges. This was to compliment my Gilded Birdcage and to give an opulent feel to my card.


You will also notice my diecut corners have had Gilding Wax rubbed all over them.


The corner of my paper was placed into my Die and cut to give a curved edge and I fussy cut around the bird and foliage, mounting in place with some Silicone Glue and a touch of Cheesecloth.


My centre layers I layered in place with foam tape for added dimension, adding some sweet birds onto my Birdcage for extra detail.


Finishing with a pretty Floral bouquet, some die cut feathers and bling.

Wishing you a lovely week.

Happy Crafting,

Ahh Tissue ! Craft Consortium


Hi Everyone, today for my DT post at Craft Consortium I am sharing inspiration with one of their gorgeous Decoupage papers. They have so many in their range that suits every taste and styles for our crafting.


I purchased a chipboard tissue box from Hobbycraft and began altering it. First I gave my box a coat of white Gesso and once dry I started gluing on torn sections of Decoupage paper with Mod Podge Matt, adding a final coat of Mod Podge to seal the paper.


I always decorate my projects all the way round and on the inside, I think this gives a more professional finish and fools the eye into not believing it's started as Card.



I added small metal feet and a pretty paper from the Gypsy Gypsy pad to the base.


On the front I fussy cut out butterflies also from the Gypsy Gypsy pad and double layered them adding a drop of Silicone Glue behind the wings to help keep their shape.


My lid has a selection of embellishments from the Always and Forever collection for the perfect finishing touches.


Finally adding a box of tissues inside.
