I am back again today with another card for the Crafty Cardmakers Challenge
I hope that you can see that I have used acetate for the front of the card?
here it is closed.
On the acetate I have used the Clear Scraps Acrylic Mixer Spiders Web. The mixers can be used as stencils or as embellishments, so far I have just used the web as a stencil, but I will use it as an embellishment when the mood takes me. Then I will probably decorate it with Color Solutions Alcohol Inks.
I have cut my A4 card in half long ways and then folded it in half and cut off most of the front of the card. I used A4 double sided sticky sheet all over the back of the houses and stuck them down on the card. In the background I have added some stars with a quickie glue pen and some Lavender Glitter.
I have cut the houses with a border of colour around them so that they would stand out.
I have attached the acetate with double sided tape
Then disguised it with ribbon, I like the grosgrain because itis dotty on one side, it is double the value!
so there we have it a spooky card. I am off to a house warming this weekend, wish it was next weekend then this card would do!
I hope that you are enjoying our Things that go Bump in the Night week and why not play along at Crafty Cardmakers. Thanks for visiting see you soon!
then to make the pendants I cut strips of navy and blue card with a V in the bottom. I put these together with double sided tape.
Then die cut the second largest oval from the Dreamweaver Long Nesting Ovals and stamped on it with the wording from Jane’s Heart Garden Clear Magic stamp.
I used a Tombow Glue Stick to attach the tree, I deliberately was very heavy handed with the glue, so that it spread when I pressed the tree to the card. Then I covered the tree with Multi Crystal Glitter, by doing it this way I got a more random spread of glitter.
This card has actually been handed over to the bride and groom.
On the inside I added the large oval cut with the Dreamweaver dies and topped it with a tag from the Elegant Tags Everyday Messages. I used the High Bond Tape to attach the oval, just around the bottom and sides and popped in a gift card.
Mr and Mrs
Thanks for visiting don’t forget to see what the rest of the team are up too!
This week on the Woodware blog we are looking at travel, I am a really bad scrap booker, well infrequent would be a better description, so I love it when I am pushed to do it.
In the summer of 2013 I was lucky enough to take a trip to Las Vegas, my third trip to this interesting city, this was work I went to do the Dreamweaver Certification course and attend a CHA trade show. The bonus was I was with 2 of my favourite people! (the whole thing was great, I love to learn crafty stuff and love to see what is new, so it can not really be discribed as work)
This photo collage sums up the outside of Las Vegas to me, and the photograph of us, was really funny as it was taken by the shop assistant in one of my must visit shops in the US. (It sells handbags and jewellery don’t tell Francoise that we went with out her)
My scrapbook page is going in an Ikea frame.
I have collaged two photographs, I played about with other photographs, but this two said what I wanted the photograph to say.
You can see the whit gap that I had when I added the mount, so how to get this to work?
My flowers don’t quite cover the white space, but enough to take your eye away from it.
I used the Dreamweaver Dual Alphabet die set for the title. I used Metallic f/x on the red and black card through the flower stencil before die cutting.
The words I think are very apt for the 3 of us! They come from one of they Dylusions Stamp sets. The words are grouped so that you can stamp them and use them as one, but also they have plenty of space so that you can cut them apart.
The card that they are mounted on has been edged with Metallic f/x.
The finished project will be hanging on my bedroom wall once it has been painted!
This week over on the Woodware blog the theme has been chosen by Pam the Pampered Stamper it is great that Pam was able to be back with us this week as she continues to recover from her car smash.
I often use look for Pinsperation it is a wonderful way to spend an evening! The house canvas that I did a couple of weeks ago when we were doing master boards started with an image on Pinterest, but there they were fabric brooches, you will find them on my Buttons Board.
Jane has chosen the theme this week, a technique that I have seen in paintings, but not something that I would have sever thought of trying, I am not sure that I really have got it right, but I do like the card that I have made.
I have used the Large Open Owl stencil from Dreamweaver
first tape down the stencil
I then drew around the stencil with a Black Micron Pen keep your pen upright as much as possible.
I then added my dots, with shades of brown from the new Koi Waterbrush pens 24 pack.
(sorry about the photo)
To finish off I made flags with some paper from the Perfect Prints Dark Dots pad.
I enjoyed doing the technique, so I got a bit carried away
On the Woodware Blog this week they have been looking at Christmas Collage and there have been some stunning cards, I decided to make a canvas. I love the work of Wendy Vecchi, Wendy uses Dreamweaver Embossing Paste branded under her name, but it is the same good stuff in the jar, so while this can not be compared to anything from Wendy, she is my source of inspiration.
I must admit I am rather pleased with it. The canvas is 7 x 9.5 inches.
so that when I turned it back to work on the canvas is supported by the block. Thanks to Siobhan the Recovering Stampaholic for that tip.
I have covered the whole of the canvas with Translucent Embossing Paste not in being fussy about getting it smooth. (this is the part that was inspired by Wendy Vecchi)
So when the background was dry I used the Crackle Paste on the Coil Christmas Tree. The crackle paste has to go on an acrylic base so that it has something to hold on to the translucent paste is perfect and i could have used this just under the tree, but I hadn’t decided if I would only use the tree directly on the canvas so it was simpler just to put a thin layer all over.
I have Frantaged the letters, this tip is mine, I put the letter in a spoon and heated from underneath the metal of the spoon heats up easily and the heat is transfered to the letter. (don’t use the spoon for soup afterwards)
Then I got out my Dreamweaver Dies and cut 2 sizes of bauble with the Nested Ornaments Die. On the small one I added Frantage mix and some copper embossing powder lines which I drew with the Versa Mark Pen. On the other bauble I used Watermark Ink through the Holly Swirl stencil, I applied it with the Stylus Tool.
