Quick Poinsettia Flower #327

Woodware Poinsettia Box Peel-off STicker

Super quick project today!  I had to rustle up something for you whilst in the shop today and we’ve been busy busy busy!  So in-between serving customers today I painted a square cut piece of card with an aqua H2O pearlescent paint so it looked quite textured.  Once it was completely dry (a few customers later…) I used some low tack tape to stick across the back of the waste of yesterday’s peel-off (Woodware Poinsettia Box).  You need to make sure you have a grid of tape to keep the shape design and don’t worry if the teeny tiny bits don’t quite stick – they are easy enough to transfer after.

Pink Patch Elephant #321

woodware Patch Elephant stampFirst chance I have had to play with this lovely elephant stamp –  he’s a Woodware stamp called Patch Elephant.  He is ideal for baby cards.  I’ve created my background by using Distress pens and scribbling colour onto my craft mat, spritzing with water and then swiping my ready spritzed wet card into the ink.  You get lovely watercolour effects.

Poinsettia Sleigh #320

Tattered Lace Xmas Sleigh

This pretty sleigh is a project from the Tattered Lace Christmas magazine.  The mag has all the templates to cut out the pieces for your sleigh and a step-by-step guide on constructing it.  It uses the Lavish Poinsettia die.

I chose to make my sleigh in the blue & silver colour scheme to match in with a forthcoming window display.   (more…)

Christmas Rose Tag #319

Tattered Lace Christmas Rose

Back with the other tag I have made for this evening’s craft club make & take project.

I have worked with the Stix2 White tags and Distress Markers to create the background.

The die is from Tattered Lace – it is the free Christmas Rose die from their Christmas magazine (expecting copies of this in store any day now!)

Tattered Lace Christmas RoseI have used my Distress markers to add the colour, and then applied a few highlights with stickles

Such a pretty die.

Back tomorrow with a big wow Tattered Lace project!

If you would like to join us at club night this evening, just give me a call at the shop on 01953 454976.

happy crafting
