Introducing The Emporium

Hi everyone, today for my Design Team post with Craft Consortium I am sharing my first project using The Emporium Collection which has just been launched. As you can see from the photo below this is a stunning collection which includes stamps and ephemera. The papers are exquisite in design and are a joy to create with.

I decided to make a stationery gift box containing cards/notelets with matching 4x4 envelopes.

My card designs I kept to a minimum to show the beauty of these papers adding on some sentiments using the stamps from the collection.

My bug I added some glossy accents on top of the body to give a domed effect.

Here are another couple of pics for you to enjoy.

Why not join our group on Facebook called Craft Consortium Network where you will see lots of inspiration from all of the Design Team and fellow Crafters using all of Craft Consortium's products.

This collection is available HERE and at most leading craft retailers.

More Snome Time

Hi Everyone, today I am sharing some more of my makes using one of Craft Consortium's latest collections by Helz Cuppleditch - It’s Snome Time. I had a lot of fun making some Christmas decor using this collection.

I made this small chest of drawers which could contain sweeties or a gift or could even be further extended into an Advent Calendar using Tonic Studios - A Little Something Gift Box.

My drawer handles and feet are all made from small wooden beads, covered in Gilding Wax and secured in place with a little twine threaded through the bead and papers, gluing in place.

Using the 3D Decoupage sheets I added my Easel card onto the top of my chest. Glass Glitter, Extra fine Glitter, Faux Snow and Nuvo Crystal Drops were all added for an extra chilly feel.

The sides of my box had some toppers added onto the papers.

My baubles have also been made using the 3D Decoupage sheets and papers. You will notice I have also added extra snow and glitter to these with a sprinkling of Frantage in the background for snow falling.

I made some gift boxes with my scoreboard to compliment them. Adding a stamped sentiment and diecut snowflake.

A small snowflake charm added onto my ribbon for an extra touch of luxury and detail.

Why not join us over at Craft Consortium Network on Facebook and share your crafty makes with us or get inspired at all the inspiration using Craft Consortium Products. You will also find us at #ccmakes and #craftconsortium on Instagram where you can share your makes with us.

Home Decor Tropical Hangings

Hi everyone. today for my Design Team post at Craft Consortium I have been playing with the new Tropical Paradise Paper Pad from the Essentials Collection. It’s full of fun images of Tropical Birds and pretty flowers and foliage.

The parrots I thought would look great sitting on a twine hoop. Using my circle die I cut out with cereal packet approximately 4 inch circles and wrapped my twine around them.

Fussy cutting my birds adding some diecut foliage and flowers. They now look great hanging on my craft tree in my craftroom.

Tonic Studios - Concertina Dies

Hi everyone, I can finally share some amazing news with you all. I was recently contacted by Tonic Studios asking if I would like to share some inspiration using their newly launched Concertina dies, so of course I said YES.

These will be released on Create and Craft  today (Monday the 24th) at 10am and 3pm or alternatively at Create and Craft's website on catch up TV. I had so much fun with these Dies and can see a lot of potential in 3D designs with them.

This is the first of my makes which also uses Tonic Craft Perfect paper.

My second project I have made a small memory box, ideal for filing photographs or ephemera in.

My third project is a letter/memo rack using Craft Consortiums Herbarium and Wood Effects Papers. I remember my gran having a letter rack made of wood similar to this in design which gave me the idea to making this using the Concertina die.

Please do check out Tonic Studios on Facebook and Instagram to see all the inspiration from the team using these Dies.

The Potting Shed

Hi everyone, today for my design team post at Craft Consortium I am excited to share an up-cycling project using wooden packaging that contained a sauce bottle from Christmas time.

I started by adding some brown paint to all the edges of my box and then measured sections of paper from our Wood Textures pad and cut to size. Onto all these sections I stamped on my flowers and foliage.

My watering can was stamped and fussy cut out adding my stamped caterpillar and a little glossy accents to it. My flowers and butterfly I added a decoupaged layer for extra dimension. My spade is cut from the Metal Textures Pad for the handle and the base part was cut from cereal box and coloured with a silver Promarker finishing off with some Distress Powder to look like soil.

My plant pots have been cut again from the Metal Textures Pad and using the Stamp Set from The Herbarium Collection I stamped onto coffee stirrers. I filled with fussy cut foliage from The Herbarium Pad adding my gardening tools and some 3D moss for modelling.

My table was made from the Wood Textures Pad adding some more Distress Powder for soil, die cut gloves and metal embellishments also from The Herbarium Collection.

The windows were die cut again from the Wood Textures Pad adding some Satin Miri card behind them. My cat was die cut using the metal textures pad adding a shadow layer of dark grey behind it.

My roof was cut into rectangles from the Metal Textures Pad, inked at the edges and added on the roof to look like quarry tiles.

Some more photos to look at.

Just stopping by to say Hello

Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by today. For my Design Team post at Craft Consortium I am sharing some more inspiration using the amazing Essential Paper Pads

The pads I have used on this card are Tropical Paradise for my little fussy cut bird and the Grunge Tones pads both in Light and Dark Tones.

I started by matting and layering 2 tattered layers onto my card with foam strips for dimension, keeping the edges white to compliment my die cuts.

I continued to layer up my die cuts with foam strips onto my card and added some Dahlia flowers which were also die cut from my pad for the perfect complimenting tone.

Finishing with my sweet little Tropical bird, a Tonic sentiment strip and some small gems from Craft Consortiums Always and Forever Collection.
