Kraft Card

Quite a quick card this one, as you can see I used Kraft card in two shades.  I used VersaMark ink and detail white embossing powder.  The reindeer is from Nina Crafts and is called the Magic of Christmas, I also used the other reindeer with the design on it and that one is called Reindeer Greetings although I didn't take a picture of that one, it was just the same as the picture below.  I also used some postage stamps that we had in class in November.  To finish off this card I used a Sakura white gel pen to add the faux stitching around the base card.

Project Club Stamps

This is one of my favourite stamps this year and it's from the October project club, it's the sprig of holly.  I have also used the Holly Tree on the inside of the postage stamps, I made these using a punch, then masked off the outside edges using some sticky notes and then used the holly tree stamp to fill it in.  Once I'd stamped I used a Memento - Cottage Ivy pen and added the straight edges before removing the sticky notes, I then coloured the background of the holy tree with a Tea Green ProMarker.  I stamped the sprig and the holly tree using Memento - Cottage Ivy, used a red Sakura pen to colour the holly berries and used a Quickie Glue pen to add all the glitter.  The ribbon on the end of the sprigs are from a length of ribbon, I just cut them up and used them individually, I got quite a few out of that ribbon.

Baby Hedgehog

For this little baby boy card I used the plain little Hedgehog, once I'd coloured him in I cut out and matted onto some pale blue texture card, I think it was a Create and Craft card.  The background paper is from a Forever Friends paper pad, I used the Memento - Summer Sky ink around the edges, I also inked around a small piece of blue gingham paper I used for the corner.  I cut out a couple of hearts from the Spellbinder - Classic Scalloped and Classic Heart dies.  The banner is a die from Joanna Sheen's Signature range.  I used the Lowercase Kissing Alphabet from Nina Crafts.  The little boy word is actually in the hedgehog stamp set.  The safety pins are from my stash, I think I got them from Meiflower at one of the shows.  To finish off I used some brown gems also from Meiflower.

Class Card - December 2014

This is the card for December made at Nina Crafts.  We used the November project club stamps and the class stamp this month was the little tree, in fact it was two trees, the other being a little fir.
I've just been looking though the class card post and I haven't been posting them all for some reason, tut.  You will however find them on the Nina Crafts blog.  Happy Crafting.

Crafting Mavis

I can think of a few people to send Crafting Mavis to, all I would need to do is change the hair colour, sorry ladies lol.  I started off looking for a Spellbinder die that would fit this image, I found the Labels One die was just right.  I stamped using Memento - Tuxedo Black and coloured in using my favourite ProMarkers, I wanted her to look a little younger so did her hair in reds.  I also didn't want her to have falling down stockings so made the slippers and the stockings all one colour, they reminded me a little of Hug Boots.  I used some textured card for the matting so used a similar colour for her top adding a darker shade to make it look like she has a spotty top on.  Blue always goes well with pink so that's the colour I used for her desk.  She is definitely on a mission with all that card and paper on her desk, thinking of that made the wording pop into my head. So I cut some off cuts of white card and trimmed them down to 2cm wide and the pink matt is 3cm wide.  First I stamped the capital 'R' leaving a gap before it, my intention was to try and centre the text.  I used the new alphabet stamps Uppercase Kissing Alphabet and the Lowercase Kissing Alphabet, I have this thing about alphabets so I really do like these, they have both outline stamps as well as the solid stamps, what a bargin.  Anyway, I didn't like the layout when I aligned the strips of text so I used a sticky note and masked off the end of the 'Ready' strip, then stamped a section of the Mavis stamp and used the same colours I'd used in the main image.  As you can see I did the same for the other two strips but did the 'Steady' at the opposite end.  I used the Tonic Square Layering dies for the pink matt on the main image, so while they were on my desk I cut the ends of the strips into the flag shape.  I used my We R Memory Keepers corner Chomper on the ¼" to round the corners before matting onto the pink matt and shaping those in the same way.  The background is from a card/paper/vellum stack I've had for ages, I have a few, this one has pinks and lilac's in it, the paper I used has a gold tint on it as well as the pink flowers, I rounded the corner before attaching it to the card front.  I attached the 'Steady' using double sided tape and everything else with foam tape.  To finish off I used some Glossy Accents on her glasses, the spilt water, the glue and the paintbrush.  When dry I used a Quickie Glue pen and added some pink glitter, I dotted it all over because I don't know about you but I always get it everywhere.

Pud Pud

For this card I used one of the new stamps from Nina Crafts, it's call Pud Pud and has this corner cluster stamp that I stamped in both the top corners using Memento - Tuxedo Black and coloured with ProMarkers.  The stamp set comes with a pudding as you can see I used it in the middle of the card, I used the Spellbinders circle dies in both white and gold card.  Along the middle of the card I used an EK Success border punch for the stars. The sentiment is from the Swirly Christmas Words and once stamped I used a Quickie Glue pen and added some glitter to the sentiment, the pudding, the stars and puddings in the corners.  To finish I used some brown Card Candi's and cut some white ones in half with a wavy line, gluing them on top of the brown to make some little pudding, these I attached to the card front using some foam pads.

Zentangle Hedgehog

I wanted a really bright colourful card so used the Zentangle Hedgehog from Nina Crafts, with some primary colours on it.  As I was colouring this hedgehog a friend called for coffee and brought her four year old daughter with her, she saw the hedgehog and asked what I was doing.  I told her how I wanted the card to look and she wanted to help lol, she picked out the background card and paper, a bit loud for me but hey ho.  The green dotty paper has been cut using my Cuttlebug and the Tonic - Florid Circle die, I also wanted a little bit of grass so used the Marianne Design Icicle die.  The balloons are from the Docrafts Xcut range and the little ladybirds I've had in my stash for ages, they are some of those little wooden ones.  To finish I used a Glaze pen from Sakura on the nose and eyes.

Red and White Reindeer

This card sort of happened it wasn't planned it just turned into what you can see.  I started with the reindeer, it's from the Reindeer Greetings stamp from Nina Crafts.  I stamped it using VersaFine - Onyx Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I used ProMarkers to add a little colour to the holly and berries, then trimming the white card to the size you see, so I just had enough room to add the sentiment, again from the Reindeer Greetings stamps.  I used a Martha Stewart corner snowflake punch in each of the corners then matted onto some red foil card.   I used a Winter Wishes snowflake border die from Joy Crafts, cutting two and attaching them to the outer edges of some more red foil that I cut slightly smaller than the card front.  Luckily the topper fit with a little bit of trimming.  I then used a Quickie Glue pen on both borders and on the reindeer, adding glitter as I went along.  So not a lot to this card really.

Class Card - November 2014

This is the class card for November I made for Nina Crafts.  
We used the October 2014 project club stamps for this card and the complimentary stamps that fit perfectly with this set are the Christmas Postage Stamps.  The envelope in the middle is actually red pearlescent but the photo hasn't picked it up, and this middle topper actually opens so you can write your message on the inside.
Have you noticed how many non-crafters don't know how to stand the easel card up properly.  I was given this little picture, so thought I'd share it with you, just cut it out and pop it into the envelope.
  Happy Crafting J

Magic of Christmas

All stamps are from Nina Crafts.

I used some plain blue and white for this card, I cut the blue so it was a little smaller than the base card and dusted it with an anti-static bag.  I used the Snow is Falling stamp all over the background, stamping in with VersaMark and then heat embossing with some of Chloe Endean's WOW powder - Frozen Lake.  Using the same blue card I stamped the Magic of Christmas reindeer using a VersaMark ink pad and heat embossed using white embossing powder.  Once cut out I used a Quickie Glue pen all over the body of the reindeer then added some glitter, leaving the stars.  The oval is from the Tonic - Oval Layering Dies, I cut the two largest out using some white card then added some glue from a Zig 2 way glue pen because it has the wider nib.  I added some glitter, it is the same glitter as the reindeer but because of the difference in card colour it makes the glitter look completely different.  I attached both the oval and the reindeer to the card with foam pads.  The sentiment is from the Reindeer Greetings stamps and I've stamped it onto the white card using VersaMark and heat embossed using some Heat It Up! Embossing Powder - Blue Glass, the colour is a good match for the background card.  I ripped the top and bottom of the white card leaving the raw edge, adding some glitter to the edge as well.  To finish off I added some AB crystal gems from Meiflower.

Project Club - November 2014 ~ Main Card ~

This is the main card for this months project club over at Nina Crafts, I love these funny little elves.  This month is issue number 87 that means the project club has been running now for over 7 years, I can't believe it, my first one was in December 2010, so that's 4 years now, good grief time goes nowhere lol.

Materials Required
Project Club Stamps and Card Kit
Stamp and Stash Set 
Memento – Tuxedo Black 
Colouring Pen/Pencils or Markers
Double Sided Tape and PVA Glue
Foam Pads and Tape
Corner Rounder

Cut a piece of white card so it measures 10cm x 11.5cm.  Onto this piece of card stamp the elves as shown in the picture, card should be 11.5cm wide.
Colour the elves then round the corners.
I used a ¼" Corner Chomper from We R Memeory Keepers, but any will do.  Cut the coloured card so it measures 10.5cm x 12cm.  Using the double sided tape attach the elves, rounding the corners before or after attaching.  Cut a piece of white card so it measures 14cm x 3.5cm.  Onto this card and starting from the left hand side, stamp the shoes and hats as shown in the picture.  You may need to stamp onto some scrap paper first to judge the spacing.  I had a little bit of extra white left on the right hand side so trimmed it off.
Colour the shoes and hats, trimming if needed.
Cut the coloured card so it measures 14.5cm x 4cm.  If like me you trimmed the end of the white card you may need to trim the coloured card as well.  Attach the shoes and hats with double sided tape, rounding the corners before or after attaching.  Onto the base card and using the black ink, stamp the lights at the top of the card in the middle'ish.  Don't worry about them overlapping a little at this time.
Attach the shoe and hat border using foam tape to the bottom section of the card.  Using the black ink and the musical notes stamp randomly at the top of the card, around the lights.  I placed (but didn't stick) the elf topper in the position I wanted them and then stamped the notes, so there wouldn't be any overlapping.
Onto the spare piece of white card, stamp and colour the lights twice more.  Also stamp the little elf's lamp and colour this in too.
Cut out the lights.  Starting in the middle of the lights on the base card, where and if they overlap, use PVA glue to attach the first light.  The second one that may be overlapping use a foam pad to attach this light, giving a little bit of shaping if possible.  Now working along the lights, add a foam pad to every alternate cut out light and PVA for all the others.

Cut out and add the elf's lamp with a foam pad.  Attach the elf topper using foam tape.
Use the small gems on the bobbles and bells on the ends of each of the hats and shoes.  Also use a small gem on the bell on the hat of the middle sized elf, and the last small gem on the top of the small elf's lantern.  Use the larger gems on the rounded ends of all the musical notes.

Project Club - November 2014 ~ Green Stepper ~

After the disaster of the red stepper card I needed to do another one, so again I used the Crafts Too die for the stepper base card.  I used some green card from my stash for the background, it has clear embossed dots all over some Christmas text, really nice card.  The scalloped edged rectangle on the front of the card is from the stepper die set, so all your layers are included.  I stamped the larger of the two elves first, then the little one higher up so he can read the hymn sheet better.  I then used the sticky note masks I'd made for another card and covered both of them up.  I used some Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass on the background of the elves, using a piece of scrap paper that had been cut so it had a little hill on it.  I coloured everything in using my favourite ProMarkers and added the musical notes with Memento - Cottage Ivy.  I wanted a piece of ribbon for the front panel, I have three drawers, a ribbon rack and a box full of the stuff but I couldn't find anything that grabbed me, then right at the bottom of the box I found the piece you see on the card, if I'd have sneezed there wouldn't have been enough and the text was in the right place, how lucky was that lol.  Once everything had been attached to the card I cut out some bells from a die set from Memory Box and glittered them before attaching them to the card.  I also glittered the snow under foot and the trim on their hats.

Project Club - November 2014 ~ Blue with Reindeer ~

I started with the background on this card then the card itself just happened.  Onto a piece of copier paper I die cut three snowflake I think they were the Spellbinders dies (I tidied my desk before I made note of the dies) I cut them in the middle of the paper so I could use it as a template.  Using a plain piece of white card and my template I inked the snowflakes with Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass, randomly stamping all over the card.  I then used Distress Ink - Salty Ocean to ink the edges, to finish of the background I used a snowflake background stamp from Nina Crafts and the Salty Ocean to add the snowflakes.  Using the Spellbinder - Labels Twenty-Eight dies I cut out the topper and once embossed I inked around the edges using the Tumbled Glass.  I then stamped the elves using Memento - Tuxedo Black, making masks for the elves using some sticky notes.  I stamped the smallest first then covered him with the mask, I then stamped the middle sized elf and again covered him with his mask, finally I stamped the largest elf and once I removed the masks I coloured them in using my ProMarkers.  I stamped the musical notes adding some glaze with a Sakura pen, then added the glitter to the notes and to the trims on the elves.  I used the die the draw around to make the matt, it was some blue spotty card and I just added the Salty Ocean ink all around the edges.  I was about to add the ribbon when I saw on my shelf the silver star one you see on the card, it's actually for wrapping presents, I attached it using a tape runner.  I used an oddment of the snowflake ribbon and tied it using the satin ribbon, I attached this with my glue gun.  The reindeer I found in my stash, it's a mirrored one, I also found some Christmas trees and some snowflakes but thought the deer was suitable.  It needed something else, so I cut out the two corners using the Memory Box - Frostyville Corner die, I'd already attached the elf topper so had to just trim little bits off the corner to make it fit.

Project Club - November 2014 ~ Naughty and Nice ~

I thought for this card I'd make the largest elf reading instead of singing, so I made his book into the naughty and nice list.  I stamped the elf in Memento - Tuxedo Black and used the black Memento pen to add the text.  I coloured in using my ProMarkers.  Once I'd cut him out I matted him onto some pale blue card that I die cut using Spellbinders - Labels Eleven dies and embossed using a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder.  I also cut out another labels eleven shape in the blue foil card, then cut it in half and attached it to the pale blue card.  The background paper is from a Paper Cellar pad I've had for ages, I trimmed it down to fit this 6 x 6 card front, adding a Distress Ink - Salty Ocean inked edge before attaching to the card front.  I had a look through my scrap foil drawer and found several different coloured pieces so I used the All Occasion Dies - Presents from Robert Addams and cut out a few Christmas presents.  The December 25 stamp is from the What a Year set and I used a 1½" circle punch to cut it out, I added some of the Distress Ink - Salty Ocean around the edge and matted it onto a blue foil Mix-n-Match Ornaments die from Spellbinder.  I have a little container with all sorts of bits and pieces in it, in there I found a blue foil snowflake and a pale blue one.  So I cut them up and used them for the two corners on the left hand side.  To finish off I used some glitter on the hat and the white sections of the presents.

Project Club - November 2014 ~ Red and Gold ~

I wanted to try out my new cutting die from Crafts Too, it's the Stepper Card Die, it's very convenient I must say.  I used it to cut out some red card and it's top layers, then used some gold foil card for the matts.  I used some detailed gold embossing powder for the musical notes, the lights and the happy Christmas sentiment.  I have some adhesive stars so used them over the stamped stars.  I added a bow but blodged the silicone glue so added some glitter to cover it up a bit, as it left a darker patch on the card when I tried to clean it up, tut.  I also added some of the glitter to the lights to finish off.  The glitter was actually the wrong colour, it was a little too light so I used a gold ProMarker and coloured it in.  I couldn't even photograph it properly, none of the shine is visible from the embossing, tut. This card was one disaster after another, but I persevered with it, I thought I'd let you see that everyone has a bad day L  Next.

Project Club - November 2014 ~ Gatefold ~

I have a pad of some really lovely Christmas vellum, it's from Papermania and is called 'A Silent Night', so with this month's stamp set being quite musical I thought the Silent Night song would be apt.  I used some biscuit colour pearlescent card for the matting and some cream for the main colour.  I used the upper section of the vellum song sheet on the inside and the lower section was cut into two pieces and used for the front.  I used some vellum tape to attach the sheet, making sure I really burnished it so you couldn't see the sticky tape.  I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and heat embossed with some gold embossing powder.  I used the Spellbinders - Labels Ten to cut out the sentiment, then added some Glamour Dust glitter all around the edge and onto the stars.  I used the die to draw around and make the matt.  I didn't have any creamy colour vellum so I used white for the poinsettias and they were made using the Marianne Design dies.  I added some silicone glue to the middles and sprinkled some gold seed beads on, to finish them off I used a Quickie Glue pen and added some of the glitter to the petals.

Christmas Display Hanging

For this display piece I did for Nina Crafts, I used the Pud Pud set of stamps as well as all three Christmas Trees.  For the circles I used the Tonic Layering Circles, I stamped the decorative corner from the Pud Pud set on three circles using Memento - Tuxedo black and did the sentiment for the middle one the pudding for the top circle and the present for the bottom circle.  The first of the three trees is the Swirly Bauble Tree, the middle is the Starlight Tree and the bottom one is the Holly Tree, again I stamped with the Memento and used the Spellbinder - Curved Rectangles shape to stamp them onto.  I coloured everything in with my ProMarkers and on the trees I used a Quickie Glue pen and added the glitter, I used a bit of glitter on the pudding tops as well and a Sakura pen for the berries.  Once everything was coloured in and matted onto the silver mirri card I stuck each topper onto the ribbon, using another piece of card to sandwich the ribbon in the middle, giving extra hold, leaving a loop at the top and added the bow afterwards.  The corners on the tree sections looked a little bare so I have a holly punch that I used and added some gems for the berries.

Calum's Birthday

This month is my nephew's birthday and this is the card I made for this year.  He hasn't actually got it yet as he's in the army and isn't on leave yet, so it's still on my mantelpiece at the moment lol.  The card is that shiny I couldn't photograph it properly, the base card is actually white.  I used some of my Docrafts products, the stamp is from the Papermania Typography collection and the cogs are from the X-Cut range.  I used some of the bits and pieces that came out of the middle of the cogs to further decorate the card.  I coloured the happy birthday image with ProMarkers and added some Spray and Shine from Crafter's Companion, but it went a bit weird, I don't remember where I got the white card from but the Spray and Shine was fine on the text section of the topper I'd coloured in, but on the white background it just soaked in and left a little texture effect.  I quite like it but probably won't be able to do it again haha.

and just to recap the snowflakes are
Thanks for looking J

Robin Wreath

I know I haven't posted for a little while but I haven't been very well, I'm only just starting to get anything like better, after being poorly for the last nearly three months.  But onward and upward.  I made this and some other display pieces a little while ago, so will be posting them over the next few days.  Thank you for your emails and 'yes' I'm getting better.

I used all three robins and all three snowflakes from Nina Crafts for this display piece, they are:
I used the Tonic Layering Circles and the Scalloped Circles for each of the circles.  I stamped the snowflakes using VersaMark and heat embossed with detail white embossing powder, adding some Glamour Dust glitter to the finished image.  For the robins I stamped with VersaFine - Onyx Black and heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder.  I didn't want the feet of the robins to not be visible because of the dark blue card, so I stamped their legs onto some more circles in white card that I'd cut in half, I ripped the top of the half circle to give a raw edge for a snowy effect.   I coloured the robins, cut out the upper body and added the glitter.  I matted the snowflake circles, embossed the plain circles with a Papermania snowflake embossing folder before matting those.  After adding the white legs I glued the circles together the make the wreath, once nearly dry I turned it over and added some smaller circles I'd cut out from left over card, to the over lapping edges, just to add a bit of strength to the wreath.  I used the Swirly Christmas Words  for the sentiment adding some glitter, matting onto the silver foil card, then gluing into place.  I used my we R Memory Keepers Crop-A Dile and a snowflake eyelet, adding a little white ribbon at the top to hang it up.  Finally I used some silicone glue to attach the robins upper bodies.

A Bit of Stenciling

I'm really getting into this stenciling at the moment, oh and die cutting, what about my knitting.  I think finishing things off would help sometimes lol.  Knitting downstairs in front of the TV and crafting everything else up here in my craftroom.  So for this card I used Let it Go snowflake stamp as well as the Swirly Christmas Words from Nina Crafts.  I used some Ivory - Centura Pearl card stock for the base card and some hammered cream card for the rest.  I stamped the snowflake using VersaMark and heat embossed with some gold WOW powder, then ripped the edges leaving the raw edge facing upwards.  I then used a Quickie Glue pen on the raw edge before adding some gold glitter.  The tree is from one of the stencils from Imagination Crafts, I used some PVA glue on the stencil and then sprinkled some chunky green glitter on the glue and let it dry.  Once dry I ripped the edges and glittered as before.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with the gold WOW powder, I coloured the initial letters in with a green ProMarker then ripped and glitter the edges.  Once attached to the card I used some 3-D gloss on the initials.  The snowflake background was attached using some double sided tape, the tree and the sentiment with foam pads.  I added the green and gold ribbon with silicone glue and to finish I used some green gems.

Class Card

Sorry for the photo of this card it's all over the place, I couldn't get it quite right, I'm not very happy with it.  Anyway, I used Spellbinders - Decorative Labels Eight for the lady in the bath, Spellbinders - Feathers and the Heartfelt Creations - Daisy Patch for the flower.  The stamps are the September project club set and the complimentary stamp is the face mask, can you tell I'd coloured her face to match the colour on the tube lol.

Project Club - September 2014 ~ Main Card ~

The theme of this months project club over at Nina Crafts, is pamper yourself and relax.  So here is the main card
Materials Required
Project Club Stamps and Card Kit
Stamp and Stash Set 
Memento – Tuxedo Black and Sweet Plum (or any lilac ink)
Double Sided Tape
Foam Pads/Tape or Silicon Glue
Glue Dots
Scrap Paper
Corner Rounder Punch

Use lilac ink and the bubbles stamp, randomly stamp the bubbles using second generation ink all over the front of the base card.  (ink up the stamp, first stamp onto the scrap paper, then stamp onto the card front.  This is called second generation stamping.)  Round the corners of the base card.
Follow the sizes in the picture below and cut out the white card.
Using black ink stamp the images as in the picture below onto the cut out shapes.
I started with the lady in the bath - colour and cut out as in the picture below.  If building up layers on an image I tend not to colour all of the lower layers just the outside edges.
Colour the bottle, candle and the mug.
Use the lilac ink and the pamper yourself stamp - stamp over the sentiment with second generation ink, slightly off set it.  This gives your text a shadow effect.
Round the corners on the lady in the bath image.   Cut a piece of coloured card so it measures 12cm x 10cm.  Using double sided tape attach the lady to this piece of card.  Round the corners before or after attaching.  Cut some ribbon so it wraps around the top right hand corner of this topper, attach the ribbon with double sided tape.
Cut two pieces of coloured card so they measure 4cm x 5.5cm.  Round the corners of the candles and the mug images.  Cut a piece of coloured card so it measures 4cm x 6.5cm.  Round the corners of the bottle image.  Cut a piece of coloured card so it measures 8.5cm x 3.8cm.  Round the corners of the sentiment.  Using double sided tape attach all pieces to the coloured card and round the corners before or after attaching.
Arrange the pieces on the card front attaching with foam pads or tape.  Use a ProMarker to colour the six card Candi's.  Once dry attach using a foam pad on the back of each Candi.
Slightly shape the first layer of the lady in the bath and attach with foam pads or silicon glue.
Slightly shape the second layer and attach with foam pads or silicon glue.
Make a bow with the remaining ribbon and attach with a glue dot or silicon glue.
That's it for this month, hope you enjoy your stamps, we are getting some very good feedback, so thank you for that.  If you would like details about our project club visit the Nina Crafts website for contact details.

Project Club - September 2014 ~ Blue Spinner ~

September project club card for Nina Crafts.

I used lots of pieces of left over paper for the background on this spinner card, just bits and pieces from past projects.  I cut them up into 2.5cm wide strips and stuck them onto some card I'd made just smaller than the base card.  I stamped the bottles first onto the round piece of white card using Memento -Tuxedo Black and then used the cup and candles to fill in the spaced in between.  I used ProMarkers to colour in, adding the word 'mum' on the front two candles using the Word Perfect stamps.  I used the Tonic layering Circle dies for the topper, Spellbinders - Ironwork Accents for the white corners, the hole in this die was just the right size to add a Papermania Dew Drop gem.  I used the Dew Drops on the sentiment as well, and the happy birthday is from one of the new stamps sets called Swirly Birthday Words.  I was going to add some flourishes but decided on just a single white feather.
