Little jar of flowers.

Hello to you all. As you know I love using jars for my crafts. This is an old spice jar. Not a big fan of dies, but in a previous post love Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies. Vintage morning stamps and Majestic Bloom die.
Stamped all the flowers and die cut them. Coloured with distress inks. Stuck two flowers together and put some florist wire in between. Shaped flowers with water and ball tool. Added gems and then used gilding wax over the centres of the flowers.

Just slightly glimmering.

To get the flowers to stand still in the jar was a nightmare. So wrapped them in a piece of burlap and made some kind of a clump then using Pinflair Gel to stick to bottom of jar.
Added piece of burlap ribbon and a button round middle of jar. Hope you like my mini  creation.

Bugs an all.....

Hello all. After having a lovely break in the sun I am back to crafting. Wanted to do something with these bug stamps. Covered a cardboard square with cream acrylic paint.. Used a crackle stamp from Indigo Blu.

Stamped the large bug onto a hessian tag,added bits of corrugated card and string,buttons and broken kebab sticks.

Edged with black and brown inks and of course to use my favourite.Treasure Gold gilding wax. The more I touched this project with my dirty fingers the more it smudged everywhere, but also the more I loved the effect.

Hope you like this one. Let me know what you think..

Heartfelt Creations wreath..

Hi all. Made this wreath using Heartfelt  Creations stamps and die cuts. Vintage morning background stamps with Majestic Blooms die. Not a big fan of die cuts to be honest...but love this set.
Just wrapped some strong florist wire to make the circle, wrapped with some hessian ribbon. Stamped all the flowers,die cut them out. Inked with Tims inks. Gently sprayed the flowers with water, this makes them more pliable to shape with ball tool.

Stuck the flowers onto the hessian to form the wreath and then just added some pearls to the centres. Will make some more to sell for Mothers Day gifts at work...

Sea shells.

Hi to you all. Why is it when your ill you can just keep crafting. Have been having a good play whilst off from work.
Entering this little project into Countryview Challenge. Painty pleasures. Made this with scraps of card,painted with acrylic paints. The back ground is a square of mount board washed with cream acrylic paint. Turquoise circles then stamped with a blue Distress ink, using a swirl stamp.
Stamped the shells along the bottom, then added the painted correguated card. Added shells and buttons and some twine to finish off...

Just a card.

Hi all. Made this card by stencilling the background. Then stamped the words in the centre and just carried on stamping to create the shadow words,not re-inking the stamp. Added some corrugated card in a strip, just added some gold gilding wax across the top. Added a paper rose and a button.

Shopping sins

Hi everyone. Even though I love Christmas I do love to get back to normal. Normal means our dining room table is now covered in crafts!! Have been having a real play with different things and really been enjoying getting so messy. My New Year I have promised myself to enter more challenges. So this is the first one of the year..

Entering this little jar into sinsWe all have shopping sins so this was easy for me. When I first started crafting peel offs and rub ons were big business as craft stuff was very limited back then! So my shopping sin is a sheet of rub on letters and words.

I put the letters on the bottom of the jar, rubbed over with cream acrylic paint, gold gilding wax to give a bit of texture to the letters. Just highlighted the letters with a black pro-marker so that they didn't vanish all together. Made some paper roses and added bits and pieces. Hope you like this little creation......
