Summer Fun


Hi fellow crafters today for my DT post with Craft Consortium I am sharing another card using the delightful characters from Santoro's Kori Kumi range.


On this card I have used the 3D Decoupage Characters adding a little Flowersoft onto the flowers for added texture. I then mounted onto the background paper and put into my die cut frame. 


Adding my cheeky sunflower on the corner.


My floral arrangement I cut my flowers out in white cardstock and shaded with Distress inks adding Flowersoft to the centre. I added stitching for extra detail to my coordinating paper and layered up my card and finished with some bling.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and please check out Craft Consortium to see their vast range of stunning embellishments, paper pads and Decoupage papers on Facebook for inspiration and regular giveaways, you will also find them on Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram.

Happy Turkey Day


Hi everyone, today for my DT card over at Cheery Lynn Designs I am excited to be sharing another creation using dies from their latest release. This card measures 8" X 8" to give you an idea of the size.


For my Autumn/Fall foliage I cut out several leaves in White cardstock. I used Distress Sprays on them to get all the different shades. I layered onto corrugated card that had been sprinkled with some Frantage.


My Sunflowers were coloured with Distress inks and micro beads added to the centres.


My hazelnuts I double layered the base area and added a crackle glaze onto the nut area and once dry added a little Distress ink to highlight the cracks.


My berries were also coloured with Distress inks and two layers of Glossy Accents were added letting it dry in between.


I added my doily to the centre and arranged all my foliage and flowers gluing everything in place and finishing with my cute Turkey.

I hope you feel inspired to make a card using the Autumn/Fall Leaves die and why not incorporate it into the Current Challenge - Doilies Theme over at Cheery Lynn Designs where we would Love to have you join in the fun with a chance of winning a $20 shopping spree.

Thanks so much for stopping by today

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 Kumi......you 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.


The exciting news I have to share......Craft Consortium are about to Launch a new Santoro Range called Kori Kumi which promises to encapsulate the spirit of curiosity and adventure we all share.

New Year Bells


Hi everyone, today I am showcasing some more dies from Cheery Lynn's fabulous new release on my Festive card. In Scotland as the time changes from one Year to the next at midnight we associate this with hearing bells and fondly name it "The Bells". So I decided to combine the Happy New Year with The Christmas Bells onto my card.


My Happy New Year was layered twice for a shadow effect adding on my party hats which had been embossed with Red Tinsel Embossing Powder. Finishing with some snow accents using a Snow Writer pen and Glamour Dust for added sparkle.


I sprinkled a scattering of Frantage on my Holly Leaves, shaded my Berries with Distress inks adding Glossy Accents for a realistic look. My bells were shaded in two colours of Gold Pens adding a little Archival ink to give them an aged feel. I layered up with foam tape for some extra dimension. I also think the bells would look amazing on a Wedding card.

Thanks for stopping by today to see my post and I do hope you get some Creative Time over the coming week to enter the Current Challenge - Back to Nature over at Cheery Lynn Designs with a chance of winning a $20 shopping spree.

Have a lovely weekend,

Stencil It - A Vintage Journey


Hi Everyone, today over at A Vintage Journey we start a new challenge for this month called Stencil It, hosted by my super talented teamie Amanda.

I was taking the ongoing photographs with my iPad and unfortunately they vary quite a bit in colour from the finished picture as it was a very dark wet day. My finished photos have been taken in a light tent, but I felt it was important to share all my techniques so am still showing these photos.

Let's get started.


I added a coat of Gesso to my canvas and a layer of black Gesso around the outside. I stamped my Wildflower onto Tim Holtz mask Sheets with Stazon Ink and cut it out. 


I placed the mask onto my canvas and added my Stencil on the top. I then went over with a layer of crackle paste. Once dry I sprayed a variety of Lindys Stampgang Sprays.


I now removed my mask.


I stamped onto a paper hankie my Wildflower and tore around the edges. Using the top layer I decoupaged in place with Mod Podge.


I stamped my Wildflowers onto Watercolour card wth Archival ink.


Shading them with Distress Inks and cut them all out.


Adding my decoupaged flowers onto the corner of my frame, layering up with Silicone glue. Highlighting areas of crackle and my flowers with a touch of gilding wax.


Finishing off with my MDF word Home which was heat embossed with coordinating Lindys powders.


A final look at the finished project.

Love for you to leave a comment and then hop over to see the amazing inspirational projects my Teamies have created at A Vintage Journey. You will also find all the details on this month long challenge, I do hope you get a chance to join in.
