Some projects go perfectly to plan. Some projects don’t! I had an idea in my mind to make a glittered delicate acetate butterfly. I used Stix2 Double Sided Tape Sticky Sheets and cut it just larger than my die, and a piece of Stix2 Acetate to the same size.
I stuck one to the other and then cut my Memory Box Vivienne Butterfly with the die facing into the sticky sheet side. The intention was for it to cut right through. I cut back and forth through my Cuttlebug 3 times. (more…)
Back with the birdy today. This time I have created a sparkling bird using the Woodware Special Bird stamp. Start by stamping your design onto your card. Cut a piece of A4 double sided sticky sheet from Stix2 to size and stick over the top of the design. Next peel-off the top layer to reveal the sticky sheet and cover it in the Stix2 glitter.
Next take your Promarkers and colour over the top of your glitter – don’t worry, it doesn’t damage your pen nib, just remove any glitter that clings.
This gives the most amazing bright coloured glittery finish – the picture really doesn’t do it justice!
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!)
I 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.
This fun little tag has been created as this month’s make and take project at craft club tomorrow night. There will be a choice of two different designs (you will see the other one tomorrow!).
Both have been created using the Stix2 White tags, Distress Markers and a Tattered Lace Die design. (more…)
Another bookmark today, this time using the Woodware Curly Love (Blooming Love) stamp. This lovely large flowery heart stamp is fast becoming my latest favourite! I have lots of ideas I want to play with.
I started with one of the Stix2 Die Cut Bookmark blanks. I stamped my design so it covered the entire bookmark. I stamped in Versamark and embossed in white so you may find it easier to stamp and emboss and then stamp and emboss so you can see what areas you have stamped on. However, if you have left any gaps, there is a handy little dot stamp on this set that makes an ideal design to fill in any little missed gaps. (more…)
Back again with the Woodware Garden Birdie stamp. Today I have used it on one of the Stix2 Bookmark blanks. Yesterday I worked in lots of bright colours with this stamp – so today I have kept to just a brown colour palette.
I started by stamping the design using Archival Potting Soil. I then used Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent Paint Autumn Twist. These are the only two inks/paints that I used. (more…)
