Field of Poppies

Field of Poppies

Flower Power
Hi,
I created this originally for another challenge as a guest designer piece. 

I painted the wooden PALLETTE with blue acrylic paint and used gold crackled paste through a sunray stencil. I stamped and white embossed some wild flowers on the background and splashed some paints on. I brayered red and yellow acrylic paints on some tissue papers then stamped some large and small poppies and cut them out and layered them to create 3-d flowers.

This card is my first experiment with Altenew Stamps. I loved the results of the shading with the stamps. 

I embossed the base card with Tattered Lace Script embossing folder ( my favourite ) and distressed the edges with distress ink. Then I stamped the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set with distress inks and then die cut the flowers and leaves out. I found the sentiments from my Prima Marketing stash.

Joyeux Noel Wintry Scene Shadow Box

JOYEUX NOEL WINTRY SCENE SHADOW BOX

Hi,
This is a shadow box that I put together dies from Sue Wilson Creative Expressions.

I covered the front and inside of the shadow box with some light coloured papers and distressed the top of the with distress ink and masked a circle to create the moon and night sky. I stamped and embossed some snowflakes on the top with Chloe's silver glitter embossing powder.


I did some 3rd generation stamping with some deers in the background and die-cut several deers and Christmas trees and stuck them on the shadow box to create a 3-D wintry scene. I dotted some tacky glue on the trees and poured snowflake glitters to create glittery snow on them.




I die-cut Santa Sleigh and reindeers and glued them on a string and attached to the top.

Hope & Faith

Hope & Faith Gatefold Card

 

Hello all,

Today I am posting this gatefold card using stamps from Indigoblu and I am not particularly a black card person but I thought I would give it a go and I think the turn out is better than I thought


.

I layered the gatefold front card using a die by Sue Wilson to create a sunray representing hope. I used Brushocolor pigments to get the background . I used metal junkyard embellishments by Prima Marketing and stamp embossed and cut out the sentiment words.





I stamped and embossed the image from indigoblu after creating the background using Brushocolor powder pigments and stamped some sentiments. I also stencilled a 'sun-ray ' stencil with gold crackled paste behind the main image. Finally I stamped and embossed a sentiment and cut it out and matted it on black card. The image was painted using brusho after embossing.

Magnolia Sea Captain TILDA on Graphic 45 Book Box

I altered this Graphic 45 Book Box with tags with the cute Magnolia Sea Captain TILDA on the cover. I used the gorgeous Everyday Spring papers by Lemoncraft to cover the box in the fresh pinks and greens tones. 
I coloured Sea Captain TILDA with box with distress markers and a splash of white gesso and I also used the Bon Voyage Travel Sign for the background :-) and I embellished the cover with die cuts from Marianne Designs, Fantasy Dies and Doohickey. Lace and beaded chains added and built up with flowers   
On the spine of this box I used lace and tassels from Prima Marketing and row of pearl chain on each side of lace. I attached the tassels on by punching a couple of holes by WRMK Crop-a-dile and added the eyelets to them and tied a little ribbon to clip the tassles on. And on the back of box I've also added some paper and ribbon. I've also distressed all the edges with distress ink.
 

Again I used papers from the Everyday Spring by LemonCraft to for the inside cover and distressed the edged with distress ink. I used paper doily and dies by Fantasy collection. I added a paper clay heart I made myself from a mold. 
This perfect tag comes with the book box and they're perfect for Magnolia TILDA stamp images. I coloured TILDA with Copic markers.  And I also distressed the edges with distress ink. Then I added SCRAPINIEC grapevine oval chipboard. Die from Doihickey and paperclay butterflies and flowers to embellish . 
Another tag I stamped and coloured Happy Summer TILDA with Copic markers. I heat embossed a wooden circle from Anna Marie Designs with STAMPENDOUS White distress embossing powder. Distressed the edges with distress ink and finished the embellishments off with flowers and a sprig of clear crystal.
And final tag I stamped and coloured Sitting Denim TILDA on the Sea View Chair with Copic pens. I distressed the edges and oops! Excuse the green on the edge as I spilled some paint on it!!! I used a SCRAPINIEC chipboard, a daisy flower lace and flowers and leaves and a metal butterfly to finish off. All Magnolia Stamps and Doohickey dies can be found here -
