Welcome to my world, sometimes a little hectic but a fab place to be!

Tatty Twinkle Sample 4

Here is my final sample for the Tatty Twinkle launch of the latest four designs.

This one was much easier than it looks, that’s the beauty of the stamps and Tattered Lace Dies! I cut an aperture in the card front with a Nestability die and also cut an aperture in a sheet of butterfly paper from the Tatty Twinkles CD Rom, I cut this to size to fit the card front and used Fotoglue to attach it. I cut the hydrangea border a few times and arranged around the aperture. I then stamped and cut out the flowers, added gems to the centre of the flowers and attached the stamped image swinging from the aperture.

I finished with a stamped sentiment, also decorated with a couple of the flowers and some Tattered Lace self adhesive gem flourishes.

Tatty Twinkle Sample 3

Here’s the full image of the third card I made for the tv launch of these stamps.

This is another quite simple card, I embossed the front of the Kraft Card card blank, inked it with Walnut Stain distress ink and then embellished using the Elegant Flourish from Tattered Lace Dies before I did some simple matting and layering and added the stamped image, this is a card where you let the stamp do the talking!

Tatty Twinkle Sample 2

Here is my second sample for the latest tv launch of Tatty Twinkles, this one uses papers from the Tatty Twinkles CD Rom, I scuffed the edges with scissors and then inked the edges.

Another thing to mention on this one is the Tattered Lace Hydrangea Border that I cut from funky foam and used as a stamp on the plain layers to add a little detail.

More Dreamees stamping fun

So as well as spending some time with my awesome great-nephew this weekend I’ve also been spending some more time playing with the new stamps from Dreamees that launch at 1pm on Tuesday and here are my next three projects:

So for this first card I got a pre-made kraft card blank, cut a square from the front and stamped the baubles onto acetate. I glittered the baubles and left them to dry, I stamped the holly branch across the card and onto spare card and attached this to hang the baubles from. I then added glittered dots around the edge of the card and finally backed the aperture with cream card.



Next I decided to decorate a jumbo chipboard tag that I bought at Summer Crafting. I inked the edges with black in then covered with papers from the Simply Christmas cd that is also on the show. I tore a strip of the sentiment paper, inked everything and then stamped the two small baubles a few times onto papers from the disc, cut them out and used to create flowers. I inked the edge of the front of the tag with Versamark and used a white glittery embossing powder on it, then stamped the back with snowflakes in black then embossed some. Finished with a ribbon bow. I really liked how this turned out



And finally I decided to use one of my accordion card blanks with 5 faces to decorate, I used papers and sentiments from the disc, pearl card, tattered lace embossing folders and the Christmas Tree stamp – this was a quick and easy one and I love the colours on this set too.




So that’s my crafty projects from this weekend, I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed creating them!

Dreamee-ing of a crafty Christmas…

So having rediscovered my love of all things stamping and inky, you may already know I’m a fan of Dreamees stamps, and this week I’ve been playing very happily with some new stamps of theirs that launch at 1pm on Tuesday 22nd July. My hands are covered in distress ink and my desk is an absolute tip but I’m having a whale of a time! Thank you to Carol and Haykey for letting me play 🙂

Here are my projects so far, more to follow (well it’s raining and I’m not going anywhere so I may as well craft!)

This frame was part of the set of three that I blogged about altering a while ago. I realised that the gorgeous Christmas tree stamp would fit it beautifully so I got going with this one. The snowflakes are from Tattered Lace and cut from the same papers that the frame is decorated with, they are from the CD that launches on the show with the stamps, inked and then heat embossed with clear ultra fine embossing powder.



Next is a card that I made which uses simple stamping techniques onto Kraft card with the new set of baubles, so built the design using the stamps and espresso memento ink and coloured with promarkers before highlighting with gold glitter and adding a sentiment from the CD which I inked with distress ink.20140719-124243-45763021.jpg


And finally for now, here is a notepad that I’ve altered, no stamping on this one! Ok, so the notepad was, again, very inexpensive – a set of three for £1 and so I covered it with papers from the cd that I cut to size and then inked with Peeled Paint distress ink, added a sentiment and round stamp from the cd and then added my own little list of what’s going on the notepad to get organised for Christmas!


So I hope you like what I’ve done so far and I will share more over the weekend, ttfn xx
