Messy Rabbit

Evening Everyone. I have another card for you this evening. You will have to excuse the quality of the pics as the light is horrendous this evening.

I have used this fab Messy Rabbit stamp & coloured him using Promarkers. I have then decoupaged him up. Here is a close up of the image.

I just think he is adorable. I used Pinflair Glue so I could get a bit more of an effect with the top layer especially on his ears & collar. I have taken the sketch through to the inside of the card.

I found this great printable of sheet music through Pinterest & printed it out wallet size & distressed it. Both sides of the card are actually the same colour but the light has affected this in the photo. x Clare x

Good Morning Everyone from a very wet & miserable Essex. Perfect excuse to stay warm & cosy & do some crafting.
I have finally finished a card that I started a couple of weeks ago for my Hobbycraft demo. This was the 1st time I had chance to play with Kraft Card & I have to say I love it!

I used the Molly Bloom's Christmas Carnival Stamps & Papers on the front of the card. The main image has been coloured with Promarkers & decoupaged. The pompom on his hat has been stickled. I created the ticket by masking off a Pink Gem Thank You ticket stamp so I could add my own sentiment in the centre. I then threaded some Jute through the centre of a button.

On the inside of the card I have changed the papers & created a bookmark which I have slipped into the pocket. To keep the theme running I have used the Holly stamp to add decoration. Here is close up of the bookmark.

To create the bookmark I found 2 Kraft Tags that were free with a magazine. I stamped a motorbike image in the corner of it. I coloured this with a water brush, ink pad & distress ink. I then distressed the edge of the bookmark & added a ribbon. x Clare x

Thank You Card

Well where is the time going? The weekend is nearly over yet again :-( Tomorrow my cat is going for her 1st check up after having surgery on her back so I thought I would make a card for the staff at the Veterinary Hospital that treated her.

I have used this great stamp by Whipper Snapper. I really love these stamps. It has been coloured with Promarkers. I found a fab sketch at a Challenge that I haven't visited before.

I have taken most of the sketch through to the inside of the card. 

I have a few cards to get made this week so will be back to blog again soon x Clare x

Molly Bloom's

Afternoon Everyone. I hope you are all well. I had a busy day Saturday demoing at our local Hobbycraft. I was using a gorgeous kit by Molly Bloom's. I thought I would show you the projects I made. So, go & grab yourself a coffee & put your feet up while you have a look through my piccies.

The 1st projet I made was this Holly Wreath. It is a bit time consuming but well worth it when it's finished.

 All the Holly leaves are stamped, then cut out & glued onto Kraft Card. I then added the button, ribbons, Jute & Bell. Lastly, I added the gems as berries.
The 2nd project I made was this tealight holder. It takes a LED tealight rather than the candle ones.

This is the view from one side. I probably could have done with a thicker wire but it just about holds it's shape.
The front view. I used the little boy stamp in the set & decoupaged him up a bit.

                              The other side

Lastly, I altered some red MDF hearts. I should have taken a before picture but didn't even think about it till now :-( Anyway here are the after pics.

I have used the papers from the kit along with some of the stamps & buttons & added my own bits & piees to them. Here is a closer look at each letter.
 For the N, I added the chipboard letter, some glitter snowflakes, Ribbons, Jute & a Bell.

O, I again added the chipboard letter, & I coloured the snowflakes in with my Denim Blue Promarker. The little boy stamp was again deoupaged

Apart from the chipboard, I left this one fairly plain as the paper was busy & just added some buttons threaded with Jute.

 Lastly the L. Again I added the chipboard letter, stamped & deoupaged the Angel & added 2 of the Holly Leaves stamps.

I am hoping to get chance to make some more goodies this week x Clare x
