    Hypnotised!

    Hi crafters. I was looking for something when I found this piece of ephemera in a Victorian pack by Memorabilia Pack Company. I thought this was perfect for the Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is Animal Antics. The paper is from Reminisce. I used some open squares left over from the Neat and Tangled Squares and Chevrons die, to which I added some acrylic paint and acorn archival ink. The pug is from Funky Fossil. I blacked out his pupils and added a white gel pen spiral. He is glued to a The Cat’s Pajamas spiral pop up diecut so he can bob outwards. After fussy cutting the pug,…

    Steampunk

    Hi crafters. The Simon says Stamp Monday challenge is Steampunk. I don’t have much in the Steampunk category so I went searching. The paper is from the Paper Rose Industrial paper pack. I used the Paper Rose Huds stencil with copper paste on the paper. There is a Kaisercraft Subway texture diecut embossed twice with copper powder. I coloured a Tim Holtz paper doll and added a drawing of a funnel from a book which I coloured and glued over his head. I also used some other bits cut from a book: a bolt, a pipe and an X-ray of a machine. I wanted a large font for the sentiment…

    Negative Hello card.

    Hi crafters. I had a piece of cardstock with gold spray from the MFT geometric grid stencil, and a hello cut out of it. I decided to turn it into a card. I sprayed the panel with grey, purple and pink. I had some other small negative hello diecuts from my last card, so I stacked them together and glued them behind the panel for support. Fun foam was glued over the rest of the back of the panel. The ‘beautiful’ was cut many times with the Pinkfresh Stidio script dies. The bottom layers are not full height, and were added to support the hanging off portion. The top layer…

    CAS tulle

    Hi crafters. I have an entry for the MFT Superstar Innovation Master challenge. I like to recycle and have a bit of secondhand tulle. I cut the tulle with a MFT Triangle Stax die. I arranged my triangles for a while until I came up with this arrangement. (Arranging tulle is like herding cats! They blow away or stick to each other.). Some tulles were thinner so they have 2 layers. I held it together with washi tape and sewed it onto a panel with gold thread. I wanted a CAS sentiment so I layered 4 lots of a MFT Happy Hellos diecut. It’s very dimensional; more of a sculpture.…

    Geometric CAS

    Hi crafters. I’ve made a geometric card for the MFT Superstar CAS Genius challenge. I cut multiple triangles using the MFT Triangle Stax dies. There are 5-7 layers. The areas inside were filled with MFT paper from the Freshly squeezed and Calm and Cozy chevron paper pads. I wanted a small, simple sentiment so I diecut ‘hi’ from the MFT Happy Hellos dies. Happy crafting, Christine

    For you

    Hi crafters. I have a card for the Simon says Stamp challenges this week. One is ‘frame it’ and the other is ‘no stamps allowed’. I cut down a gel print and glued black fun foam behind it. The Kaisercraft Sketched rectangle frame was cut from charcoal cardstock and layered on black fun foam for dimension. The Sizzix (Make a wish) dandelion and seeds were cut from black paper, as was the Concord and 9th Grateful dies sentiment. The hint of text in the background is a Little Birdie text stencil used in the gel printing. I am entering this card in the following challenges: Simon says Stamp Monday challenge:…

    Metallic watercolours

    Hi crafters. I watched Kristina Werner’s live where she made a watercolour panel using metallic watercolours and that inspired this card. I used Finetec green and gold metallics to make a striped background and topped this with a layered Tim Holtz Christmas Ribbon diecut sentiment. A few gems were added to finish the card. I am entering this card in the Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: No stamps allowed. Happy crafting, Christine.

    Borders

    Hi crafters. Today I took a gel print and foiled on top of it with the Couture Creations Fine Border Hotfoil plate and Spellbinders Pewter Hotfoil. I did this 4 times to cover a 5×7 card panel. I cut this down so I could frame it with a teal matt. I placed this on a antique gold cardbase and added a layered Everday script die from Pinkfresh Studio. I am entering this card in the following challenges: Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: No stamps allowed Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Frame it Thanks for visiting, Christine

    More lighting of candles!

    Hi crafters. I couldn’t resist another card with this great Art Impressions stamp. I coloured my lady with Copics and glitter gel pens and fussy cut her. The candles were stamped with a small Scenic Route stamp using masks cut from multiple layers of post it note paper. The background is some pattern paper plus the sentiment from the same Fire Out set. I am entering this card in the following challenges: Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Humorous/ Fun card Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Use your favourite stamp. Still my favourite this week. Happy crafting, Christine

    Light the candles

    Hi crafters. The Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge this week is Humorous/Fun. I did some Copic colouring practise with this stamp from Art Impressions. I used a stencil from Kaisercraft to add Viva Modellier Creme gold confetti to a gel print. I popped up the image and sentiment on foam. I am entering this card in the following challenges: Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Humorous/ Fun card. Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Use your favourite stamp. This is my favourite today. 😉 Happy crafting, Christine.
