Blossom and Bloom...

I’m using some lovely Art by Marlene flower stamps this week for my main images and then I’ve embossed the background with a one of Melina’s masks. When you’re using a stencil to emboss, you just need to play around with different ‘sandwiches’ on your die cutting machine until you get the desired result. I’ve gone for very soft colouring with Distress Oxide inkpads. The text is from one of Lynne’s stamp sets, stamped in VersaFine Clair Twilight like the other images.

Let’s get gothic!

  I’m talking about the new Gothic Arch Inside Story of course. This kit was just fabulous – I loved how Laura and Graham had designed the rafters to get that beautiful arch. I used mostly papers on the walls this time, overstencilling with the Fleur de Lys in the richly coloured Titanium Paste. For the windows I used alcohol inks on acetate and then overlaid it onto silver card.

Hope you love this kit as much as I did.

The Inside Story...

What's in the suitcase? Well, that's the Inside Story - an exciting new range of MDF from That's Crafty!
These miniature worlds are fantastic fun - you can really let your imagination run riot.

I'll post the other two Inside Story boxes at a later date.

Upcycle, Repurpose, Reuse…


That’s what I’m doing this week to make something spooky for Hallowe’en.

I’ve used some of the pieces from the Haunted House kits to make a panel – you could do this with the leftovers or do this next year to give them a revamp.

Take a panel, paint it dark blue and then stencil the spider’s web in purple and that’s your background done.

After that I just added a yellow moon and all the spooky bits and pieces.

I finished it off with some tiny strung beads and a clip.

Vintage Greetings

I’ve made a vintage looking Christmas card for That's Crafty! this week using the Stamperia Christmas Greetings Collection – I loved the blue tones used here. Once I’d worked out which backing paper I was going to use it was just a case of choosing a die cut bauble and adding some embellishments.
