Deer Wood

Good Morning Crafty Friends, 

A very busy day today, cleaning windows, putting furniture back in their places and finish the housework now that everything is all done.

The new flooring looks fabulous and we are so pleased to finally be getting back to normal it has been a long 4 weeks.

Today sharing a winter's card with you using IndigoBlu's Deer Wood Stamp.


Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 white square base card with corners punched with X-cut corner punch.
2. Matted and layered navy blue card.
3. To create the background of the topper I used Distress Oxieds, faded jeans, broken china and salty ocean.
4. I then stamped the image with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I then stamped over the image slightly off centre with black Archival ink, this gives a nice shadow effect.
5. To finish off I added white paint splats.

Mixed Media Tag

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

How are you all today, midway through the week already.

I am excited as my new wood flooring gets laid tomorrow and then I can finally get back to normal (or as normal as I can be)

Last weekend Toni from Stamps by Me had this new Love and Laughter die and stamp set on and I made this mixed media tag.


Step by Step

1. 61/4 by 31/4 MDF tag.
2. Using Tim Holtz wall stencil and Liquitex modeling paste created the wall background.
3. I then gave it a coat of brown paint once this was dry, dry brushed teal over the raised areas.
4. Stamped the bouquet, flowers and leaves then die cut, I then painted with water colour.
5. To finish off I added the ribbon.

Lest we Forget...

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Today here in the UK is Remembrance Sunday!

We honour our fallen hero's in both world wars as well as the wars since then!

This card is very poignant for me as the ephemera is past family members!

Thank you to those men and women who gave so much so that we today have our freedom.


Step by Step

1. 8 x 8 square white base card.
2. Matted and layered black and patterned paper from the Nostalgia digi paper kit.
3. Distressed around the ephemera with vintage photo.
4. Cut out the Stamps by Me poppy die in black and red and paper pieced the red pieces into the black outline.
5. To finish off used the Kind Thoughts family sentiment.
