  Leaf Card Set

The main thing I concentrated on with this set of cards was to
add a little of each to all the cards...

Each card has the leaf Stencil, Flowers, Metal, Birds,
Lace/Ribbon, Crowns & Verses.
Even with all these similarities they each have their own individual look.

The texture of the leaves was created using
Colour Blast Paste in place of the usual
texture/modelling paste for a different look which is important
to me as I like each of my creations to be originals.

"Antiqued Journal Cover"


Hello happy crafters, Rhonda here again and another month has passed us by which means I have again spent some productive time crafting away.

A Huge Thank You to our Sponsor for this month is 
My Project this month is call 
"Antiqued Journal Cover"

My project this month was a rather simple and fun one, using a couple of 'SCRAPMATTS' chipboards & charms and other things From my Stash (FMS) to dress up a journal.
I applied some papers to the front & back, inside & out, of a plain wire bound book to give an antique look.


I placed a large Clock Chipboard CB 6063 at the top and to the left I used a Dressform Chipboard CB 6036 over the top of some hemp twine and glued 2 different coloured seed beads for texture.


To bring the chipboards together I filled the space with a large flower 
charm and a paper flower FMS.


To this I constructed a flower made out of a doily, a silk flower as well 
as a flower charm bent inside out. I finished the flower off with one 
of my handmade stick pins and a pearl brad FMS.


To the front of the journal and everything on it i sprayed a heavy coat of Tattered Angel's Glimmer Mist - Iridescent Gold.

Happy 100th Birthday Bessie

Hello Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors...

Just recently I was messaged and asked if I could make a special Birthday card for a special lady that she works with. I was intrigued and asked more questions, well it turned out to be for a very special lady who was turning 100.

So I asked were there any special requirements, the lovely lady loved red Roses, 
I thought for a moment as I knew I wouldn't have any Red Roses in stock, but there was no panic I always buy my different flowers in white, then spray them what ever colour is desired.  

So this is the final card, and Bessie I hope you loved it...
 

Here is Bessie holding her card at 
her birthday party!!!!



So there you have it.

Hugs and Love



"Hugs & Love"

Hello happy crafters, Rhonda here again and another month has passed us by which means I have again spent some productive time crafting away.
This month I have another 2 projects to share...

First up is my Mothers Day "Hugs & Love", inspired by my lovely daughter.
Again I have incorporated a few layers to this canvas and using an assortment of chipboards and stencils from 'SCRAPMATTS' it was easy to find something that fitted my theme from their massive selection.


From my Stash (FMS) I started with a 10" x 12" canvas panel and applied both 
ST 1008 & ST 1021 with texture paste and dried it off with a heat gun.
Next was for the messy part... I used both LSG & Dewdrop Inks to create some additional depth to the canvas.


I affixed background chipboards and then proceeded to place pieces of scrap cardboard under patterned paper to give additional height by creating shadows. This took me a little time to adjust the look and fit of everything.

Once the patterned paper was in place I was able to attach the photo and all other embellishments to further balance the canvas.


Everyone that knows me will understand that flowers are a big part of my creations so this this one was no exception and was littered suitably.
The final touches with a couple more chipboards gave me the option to use CB 6105 to show my daughter where home is and that she is always in our hearts.
Throw in a little bling and it was job done...
