Hi everyone hope that you have enjoyed your Wednesday. I have been tempted by so many goodies on create and craft tv just recently, not that I need anything else!!!!! My little craft area is bursting at the seams - I have so much stuff now that I can never find anything which is soooooo frustrating and I think that is the reason why I am shying away from my craft table. SO with that in mind I have decided not to buy any more craft bits (only essentials like tape and glue), and have a massive sort out in my craft area. So from now on I am using up what I have. Wish me luck as I may get withdrawal symptoms. Here are some cards I have made using stash I already have.
The first 2 are Indigo Blu Alice in Wonderland stamps. On the 1st card I used a mask to add a little interest to the background both cards are stamped withTim Holtz black soot ink and I added a little glitter.
Both these cards are Lilli of the Valley toppers. I have added faux stitching an buttons to the first card and some homemade flowers, faux stitching, a doiley and some cosmic shimmer pva glue home made pearls. The backing papers were from a huge stack of papers that I have had for about 3 years and not touched (I rest my case).
Hope you like my cards. Enjoy the rest of your week. Wish me luck going "cold turkey"
Tuesday was my mums birthday (Happy Birthday). I have attached a few photos of the card and pressies that I made for her. I hope you like them.
I used Indigo Blu "Sew Easy" stamps for this one, I embossed the button pack, the cotton reels and pins. It was Versa fine sepia ink.
The MDF heart was Indigo Blu - I covered it with white so gesso then stamped and embossed the sentiment again with versafine sepia the dandelion seeds are off the indigo blu Wild Meadow range, I glittered them to add a little sparkle and added the flowers and pearl flourish. I was pleased with the finished product and so was mum. ( I hope you was mum!)
Last but not least my first attempt at a sweetie tree. I got all the components from Hobby Craft. I hooe you are all well and enjoying your weekend. Take care and thank you for stopping by.
