African Animals - Darkroom Door


For these cards I have used stamps from Darkroom Door, and  Stampscapes, and dies from Find it Trading.

For this card I masked and coloured a white card panel with distress inks then stamped Stampscapes sun and branch with archival ink. Find it trading Wild animals were die cut and added on top. The panel was then attached to a coloured card base.

The above two cards were created in the same way with images from Darkroom Door African animals stamped, then sections of die cut Wild animals frame cut and attached.

This card was coloured and stamped and has the full die cut frame added.

Here, the background was coloured, the image stamped, then water added to the background to blot out some of the colour.

Card / Tag Packs - Dina Wakley Template, Stampin' Up Papillon Potpourri and Kaiser Flowers...


How are you? We hope you are having plenty of time to spend crafting! Todays selection of creations include a Cards with Envelopes Pack and two Tags with Envelopes Packs.

The first pack was created using The Crafters Workshop Dina Wakley Mini Vine 6x6 Template, stencilled with a glittery brown acrylic paint and embellished with paper flowers with pearl centres. The back of the tags were stamped using Darkroom Doors Calendar Set.

This next set of Tags with Envelopes was created using a Motif Damask Stencil from scrapbookingncraft with a glass bead paint, Stampin' Up Stamp Set Papillon Potpourri - Butterfly and once again the Darkroom Door Calendar stamp set.

This set is created using a purchased set of black cards with envelopes. I have white embossed flowers from a Kaiser Stamp set called Flowers on to black card which I have adhered to a white layer and then adhered to the black card base.

Be sure to take some time today to create!
Thanks for visiting,

Angler - Kaszazz


This set of cards features Kaszazz Silhouette Angler and Riverbank stamp sets.


The same stamps, inks, colours and processes have been used for each pair of cards. One set was created on matte card and the second set on gloss card. The gloss panels are mounted on white card bases and the matte panels on coloured card bases.
Images were first stamped with Staz-on ink, then the backgrounds shaded with distress inks. The clouds on the fourth card were stamped with archival ink.
A totally different look is created according to the base materials used.

Home, Magical - Lavinia


Where do Fairies live?

In a castle?

In a mushroom?

These magical cards have been created using Lavinia stamps.
Image panels are white bases which I coloured with distress inks and using masking techniques.
Images were stamped over the top with Versafine inks, and some sections highlighted with Wink of Stella glitter pens in various colours.
The panels were then added to a card base of a co-ordinating  colour.
Stickles glitter glue was added to highlight the design, and to frame the image panel.

Will you be checking the bottom of your garden tonight?
