Wedding cake

Hi all,

Today I thought I would show you a card which I have made using the loopy background, wedding cake and mr and mrs wedding day stamps. Again I'm back to white on white cards which I love! Especially for weddings I really think that they give an elegant feel to a card especially combined with silver.

To start for this card I stamped and embossed the loopy background in wow neutral ultra shimmer onto white card, this create a beautiful backing paper as it just adds clear sparkles which I love! This also works well over patterned papers. I then used the spellbinders floral ovals to cut an aperture out to put the greeting in. For the cake I stamped and embossed it it silver super fine onto white card and a little glitter added to the lilies, this has then been mounted not the card. I finished with a white silky crush bow and a diamanté embellishment.

Bye for now,
Chloe

Red sparkly shoes...

Hi All,

Today's card features the Large Shoe stamp (which is back in stock!!!) for this card I wanted to created something super sparkly and in brighter colours and here is the result. The shoes have been stamped embossed and then decoupaged. The top layer was covered in double sided adhesive sheets and then cut out and glittered using red glitter. To finish I added a feather and jewels to each shoe and for the heal I used silver halo glitter.

I thought the matting and layering for this card should be quite simple so that the ficus was on the shoes, so I just stuck with red, white and black. I then added a couple of rhinestone swirls and a have a fabulous day sentiment.

Something a little different today...

Hi All,

For today's post I thought I would show you something a little different... Some jewellery which I have made. I saw Kleshna on create and craft showing Kumihimo, and decided I wanted to give it a go, these are my first two pieces, the smaller one was just braided and the chunkier one was braided with beads and the a Swarovski heart added as a charm, I'm now totally addicted to this as it is so quick and easy to do.

Hope you like them,
Bye for now,

Yellow Butterfly Wreath

Hi all,

Today's post features the Flutterby Wreath Stamp, I wanted to do something a little different for this one so I decided to use my spellbinders grand decorative circles as a base and for my matting and layering. The Flutterby wreath has been stamped and embossed in WOW silver bells. I then re stamped it onto some matching yellow paper and cut the butterflies out to decoupage over the top.

Sticking with the Butterfly Theme...

Hi all,

For today's card I had been experimenting a little. I have had quite a few emails recently asking if you can use the WOW bonding powder with guilding flakes... Well the answer is yes you can! If you stamp with versamark and then emboss as usual with the bonding powder until it has melted (it goes clear), then whilst the powder is still a little warm dunk it in your guilding flakes and press the flakes onto the image then polish off as usual, a little tip though... If y have to reheat the powder make sure the lid is on your pot of flakes!! And yes I have now learnt this from experience!lol to mount the card I stamped the butterfly trails stap in the background using London Fog momento ink pad and used flitterglu and flakes to edge the card, to finish I add a few jewels to the centres of the butterfly's and a sentiment to the bottom.

Gilded Butterfiles...

Hi All,

I've been having a bit of a play today with some stuff that I bought at the Harrogate show, I treated myself to the indigo Blu flitterglu starter set, because I needed to restock on my flitterglu!!! Here is a card which I have made today using black card, flitterglu and mega flakes. I wanted to use then Beautiful Butterfly Background as the main feature of this card, so I stamped it in flitterglu and the used mega flakes over the top, for the second matt I edge the card in flitterglu and dunked it in the flakes, the background was made in the same way but this time using the butterfly trails stamp, I then added the monarch butterfly stamp again gilded and triple embossed with clear embossing powder, to finish I added a make a wish sentiment and a black silky crush bow.

Also below I've added the finished pictures of our stand at Harrogate.

Bye for now,
Chloe

Great Northern Papercraft Extravaganza

Hi All,

We are just on our way home having set up for the show this Saturday and Sunday at Harrogate so I thought I would share a few pictures with you, apologies about the light but it was starting to get dark as we came out.

I also thought I would share a card which I made for the lily stamp launch on create and craft a couple of weeks ago, this card was a bit of a happy accident as I had left all of my heat embossing stuff at the unit, so I only had ink pads so for a change this one has just been stamped in black momento and coloured using my spectrum noir pens, I chose a blend of pinks (so predictable!!). To finish I added a little glitter with a quickie glue pen.

Bye for now,
Chloe

Back to blogging!!!

Hi all,

It seems like such a long time since I last blogged but I have been so busy making new samples and not had enough time to blog them!!

So into today's card, this one was shown on my 10am show on create and craft on Sunday and I think it is one of my favourites it was super quick and simple to make, I stamped and embossed the lattice background onto white card embossed it in silver, glittered (of course ;) ), then added some silky crush ribbon, bow, jewel and sentiment.




Hope you like it,
Bye for now,
