Stencil Stamping Hello Card


Hello :)
I have my DT card for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge to share.
All The challenge details, entry and DT inspiration can be found HERE.


My card uses a technique I taught at the C4E Crop and workshops this month, stamping with stencils.
This is a great way to get more from your stencils and can create fabulous backgrounds for cards, layouts and journal pages.


The technique is far from new as many people who use inks with stencils will 'blot' the stencil on to another page or piece of paper so as not to waste the ink. For this card I did not ink through the stencil at all but added ink directly onto the stencil then pressed it on to the card.


Once the ink was dry I stamped over it with Versafine ink and two different stamps.


The die cut feathers were cut from silver miri card and added on to the card with sticky fixers and some cotton thread behind.


To finish the card I added a few sequins and stamped a 'Hello' sentiment with Versafine ink.
I seem to be adding cotton thread to all my projects at the moment lol! 
Do you have a repeating element in your projects?
That's all from me today, thank-you for stopping by have a great weekend!

Red, White and Blue Card


Good Morning :)
I am back today with my DT card for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge
 ~ RED, WHITE and BLUE.
All the challenge details, entry and gorgeous inspiration can be found HERE.


My card today was made for my nephew who is 13 today!!


The background was created with a Crafters Workshop stencil (Stacked Triangles) and red Stazon ink.


I then stamped over this with a stitch stamp (Bo Bunny) and Arrow stamp using Chipped Sapphire Distress ink pad.


I flicked some Chipped Sapphire ink and Maya Gold gold paint over the top before adding the embellishments.


The die cut cog was coloured with red Stazon ink and layered on top of red, white, blue and gold cotton thread.
The gold arrow is from this months page kit. The numbers are some very old Thickers!
A few gold sequins finished off the card.

This seems to be my "go to" design at the moment lol!
Do you have a "go to" design which you repeat often?
Thanks for stopping by today have a great weekend!

Mixed Media Metal Card


Good Morning :)
as promised I am back today to share my DT card for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge ~METAL.
All the challenge details can be found HERE along with entry and gorgeous inspiration.


My card this week is a mixed media Father's Day card.
I used some DP scraps layered on to a piece of a piece of MME Now and Then paper from a 6x6" paper pad.


I then added modelling paste through a stencil (stacked triangles - Crafters Workshop)


I added some colour with Distress inks and then created the metal focal point.


The metal focal point is a mix of old watch parts, paper clip, old washers, a Tim Holtz clock, ball chain and some string.




To finish I added a few beads and some silver glass fragments from Prima.
The card turned out to be quite heavy but stands ok :)
Over to you now :) Dig out those metal bits and bobs and create a project to share with us at C4E!
Have a wonderful weekend, thanks for stopping by :)
