Amy Tangerine Cards + Video


Hello again!

I'm back again today to share some goodness that I have created using the 
Amy Tangerine Hustle & Heart Collection 
that I received from Anna's Craft Cupboard this month.

I have created a set of cards to share.

First I have 'Love'


For this card I have used a piece of patterned paper from the "12 x 12 Paper Pad"
I have fussy cut the leaves from one of the patterned papers. I have then layered these with flowers from the "Ephemera" pack, which have "Wool Pom Pom Stickers" for their centres.
Lastly I have added some gold glitter hearts from the "Thickers The Lucky Ones".

Up next is 'Destination Unknown' which I thought would be a good travel card :)


I used the journal card from one of the patterned papers from the "12 x 12 Paper Pad".
The clouds were fussy cut from one of the patterned papers also.
I then used an aeroplane and suitcases from the "Ephemera" pack.
It has all been raised from the card with foam dots.
To finish I added a gold glitter heart flag from the "Thickers The Lucky Ones"
  
Up next is 'Hugs'


For this I have again used patterned papers fro the "12 x 12 Paper Pad"
I have layered a fussy cut flower, with a few pieces from the "Ephemera" pack.
I have finished it off with a cute "Mini Faux Suede Bow"

And my last card is 'Celebrate today'


I made the kite using some of the patterned papers from the "12 x 12 Paper Pad", 
which I have also used as my base.
I have added some "Mini Faux Suede Bows" to my kite string :)
I have then layered a flower from the 'Ephemera" pack and a doily.

I have a process video for the creations of these cards. 
You can watch it here


I hope you enjoyed your visit.

Until next time

2Crafty Part Two


Hello!

I'm back again today to share Part 2 of my shares using


This layout is

'Happiness is this'


For this layout I have used 13Arts Aria Story collection.
I LOVE the yellow in this and really wanted to bring them out.

 

I've started with some modelling paste stencilled onto my base page. 
I have then done some splattering with yellow paints and mists.


I have one of the "Foliage Set 3" that I have painted yellow, 
I have then added glitter dots to the circle ends for a bit of sparkle :)


I have also used some of the "Fanciful Butterflies"
that I have first coated in gesso and then I have glued on some torn tissue paper.
I really love the effect it gives.


I have also used one of the "Leafy Shrub Set 1"




And lastly I have used the title "Happiness is This"


I have finished this is the same pale yellow paint.


 I really love how this layout pops off the black background, I'm still loving them!

I have then added distressed pieces of the 12 x 12 papers, along with pieces of the



I have then used some of the die cut and acetate pieces from the 'Ephemera Pack' to layer upon my layout.

Forever Layout for 7 Dots Studio


Hello again all!

I'm here today to share a layout that I have created for


Just a few days ago my husband and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary!
So in honour of the occasion I have created a layout featuring him.

'Forever'


The Hazy Days collection is perfect for my theme as it has a grungy, film like feel to it.
Ideal for a layout about a special man.

I have used Hazy Days Oil Spill 12 x 12 as my base and have then used the 
'Alphabet Stencil' and the Hazy Days Chevron Stencil with a mixture of inks and modelling paste to add dimensions and texture to my page.


I have also used the Hazy Days Clear Stamps in brown and blue to add some extra colour.


I have used pieces of the Hazy Days Pad 6 x 6 and some of the 'Hazy Days Die Cut Elements, which I have distressed and layered with the Hazy Days Tags 12 x 12.


Then I have added some Hazy Days Word Stickers, Hazy Days Element Stickers
and 'Die Cut Elements'


That 'forever' title is from the awesome 
2Crafty Chipboard, as are those fab checkerboard clumps, and 


the awesome gear cogs.


To finish I have used dribbling of Prima's Micro Beads in black.

I hope you like what I have created, I really love how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by

Until Next Time

Ocean Plaque


Hello again!

I'm back today to share an OTP wall plaque that I have created using 
Prima St Tropez collection from

Something a bit different for me, not being a layout :)



I have finished the plaque in black gesso and I have then used 
Prima's Opal Magic Wax in Turquoise Satin over the top. 
It makes the black into a metallic shimmery finish

I have then used pieces from the 12 x 12 papers, along with some of the '3 x 4 Journalling Cards'
all of which have had their edges distressed.
I have added some shells from the beach, as I love collecting shells!



There are gorgeous ocean tones of blue in this collection.
I have used pieces of the 'Ephemera Pack' to pull it all together. There are some acetate pieces,
some blue foiled accents, die cut floral pieces and generally all sorts of Prima goodness!

I have also used a piece of the 'Parisian Border' from 2Crafty Chipboard, finished in 
Prima's Rose Gold Metallique Wax.



I have also used some of the 'Isla Marina' and 'Oceana' flowers.
To finish it off I have used some 'Prills in Baby It's Cold Outside' and 

I really love how this turned out and I am going to hang it in my office for ocean inspiration when I can't get to the sea!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back with some more to share with you soon.
