Apple Harvest

Hi Everyone, for my DT post for Craft Consortium this week I am super excited to be showcasing their new Santoro Range called Kori may have seen these products on the Craft Channel Hochanda at the weekend.

The collection is filled with fabulous papers, stamps, decoupage and embellishments. Please check out the full range HERE.

When I received my DT pack and looked through my assortment of amazing goodies the Apple Cart stamp jumped out to me and I knew I just had to make a 3D version of this using many of the Kori Kumi range of products. The finished cart measures approx 5" x 8" in size.

I started off with a 'cup a soup' box and added coffee stirrer sticks onto it similar to the design on the stamp. I then added a layer of red paint and white paint with a texture stamp.

My Wagon Wheels were die cut from a Corn Flakes box and several glued together and painted. My wooden characters were coloured with Copic Pens.

My gorgeous stamped image reminds me of the Holly Hobbie dolls I had as a child. I coloured her in with Copic Pens and fussy cut her out.

My roof is covered with co ordinating paper in the range. I glued the ribbon in place with Pergamano glue, this is a specialist glue for Vellum paper and doesn't bleed through the ribbon showing glue marks. I added small red buttons to look like tiny apples.

My fruit boxes were made from Coffee Stirrer sticks. I added a layer of paper clay into the bottom and whilst still soft I popped a little glue on my buttons and pressed in place. I added some Sand coloured Flowersoft and a little wood shavings to give a look of sawdust. I also coloured the Apple stocks on my buttons with a Brown Copic Pen.

I do hope you like my Apple Cart as much as I enjoyed creating it and if there is anything else you would like to know please just email me or pop a comment on my blog post and I will get back to you.

Ding Dong The Witch is Dead

Hi everyone, thanks so much for all your lovely comments on my blog for the current blog hop at Cheery Lynn Designs - Flower Power. Please click HERE and join in the fun if you haven't done so yet for a chance to win a $20 shopping Spree at Cheery Lynn Designs.

My DT post for Cheery Lynn Designs today is using some more of the fabulous newly released Halloween dies. Soon as I saw the Witches Skirt Die I thought of the song Ding Dong the Witch is Dead from the film Wizard of Oz. So I decided to combine this into my Halloween card.

I started with a card measuring 8" x 5"  layering some Vellum over my orange cardstock for a spooky feel and a drop shadow effect onto my spiders webs.

My centre background was created uses inks and a Stencil. I double layered the Witches Skirt and added more spider webbing for extra detail. I Added a shadow effect to my trick or treaters and spooky tree.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and good luck to everyone entering the Current Challenge - Back to Nature over at Cheery Lynn Designs.

Cheery Lynn Designs - Flower Power Blog Hop

Hi everyone, have you seen the vast range of exquisite Flower dies Cheery Lynn Designs do ? Well today you are in for a real treat as we all showcase some of these dies on our latest Blog Hop, so please make sure you carry on hopping to see my team mates creations.

When I make flowers I will either use patterned cardstock or cut in white paper and shade with inks. I love to use bling, micro beads and flower soft into the centre of my flowers. My leaves I also like to cut out of patterned paper or ink with a few shades of green for a realistic look.

My card this time shows flowers inked and flower soft added to the centres for a realistic look. I love to add a mix of different foliage, this adds extra detail and interest for a realistic look. Cheery Lynn has a vast range of foliage to add to your floral arrangements.

I added foam strips between my layers to add depth and shadow layered with some pink cardstock.

Romance in Paris and exciting news.

Hi everyone, for my DT post with Craft Consortium I am sharing another card using the Wild Rose Paper Pad and fussy cut butterflies from the Gypsy Gypsy Paper Pad.

My card measures 5" X 8" and I started by adding layers which had been tattered at the edges inserting touches of lace and die cuts for a shabby vintage feel. My paper ribbon strips were mounted with foam tape and tattered at the edges, this complimented my other layers and added dimension.

My Eiffel Tower I heat embossed with Frantage Powders and also added a scattering of Frantage on my image finishing with a border of lace.

My card was finished with some Rhinestones and a floral arrangement.

Another View of my card to finish off with.
