My 2Crafty Chipboard June DT Reveal
Part One
"Sweet Girl"



Hi there 2Crafty fans. Today I have a layout that I created using some gorgeous
pieces of our favourite 2Crafty Chipboard.

I have handmade every single flower & leaf on this page, crazy isn't it !! 
 
2Crafty Chipboard Used ... 
"Sweet Girl" - Mini Words
Fine Heart Borders
Doillies


How nice do all these chippie pieces look & all I have
done here is emboss them all with gold embossing powder.


The people at 2Crafty actually custom made these
 little "Mini Words" for me for a class I was doing.


I used these gorgeous chippie "Doillies" to frame my photos.
I actually cut one of them in half to make three out of two !!


Another layout done & I have to say I really love the chippie pieces 
embossed in gold. Super simple & they definitely make a statement!!

Well thats all I have for you today.
See you back here soon with more inspiration.

Until then..

My 49 and Market June DT Reveal
Part One
"Smile"


 Hello there friends, thanks for stopping by. 
Today I have part one of my June DT reveal for 49 and Market. This is a layout which I
 created for a good friend of mine, Joanne Flannery,  who owns a scrapbook store,
 Embellish It, in the south island of New Zealand.
 I taught a whole bunch of classes at her retreat the other week. 
Thankfully the New Zealand girls really liked it. I hope you do too.

 49 and Market Products Used...
Tattered Garden  - "Tattered Flourish" paper
Heirloom Botanicals - Conservatory paper
Vintage Shades Potpourri in Snow White (I sprayed them various shades of mauve & purple)
Burlap Ribbon Trim in Cream


I started off by tearing the font paper &  curling the edge before sticking it down 
on the darker paper.  This is one of my "go to" techniques I love to do.
I do love these two 49 and Market papers together.


 A little background stamping & then the fun begins !!


 I love all these shades of lavender & purples together with the
"Vintage Shades" flowers.


Some stamped leaves using a 49 and Market stamp which I then proceeded to cut out
& poke in here & there for a touch of realism.


All the beautiful chipboard I have used is from 2Crafty Chipboard.

Well thats all I have to share with you today. 
See you back here again later in the month with some more inspiration.

Until then..

More May DT Inspiration For
Heartfelt Creations


Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have another card to share as part of my May DT inspiration for

This was a "Mothers Day " card I created but by simply changing the
greeting on the front it would be suitable for a birthday card 
or perhaps a thank you card too.


Naturally all the stamps & dies I have used to create this card are
 all available in the Heartfelt Creations Webstore.

Heartfelt Creations Products Used...
                                        HCD1-776 Heartfelt Creations “Eyelet Oval” Die Set

 Other Products Used..
  Distress Ink in Pickled Raspberry & Broken China 
 Archival Inks in Leaf Green & Watering Can Grey
Kindy Glitz in Turquoise & Turquoise Paint

INSTRUCTIONS

Fold a 6.5”x 5” card and using the scalloped die from the “Eyelet Oval Die Set”, place it just over the edge of the spine of the card & run it through your die cut machine a couple of times. By placing it over the spine of the card, the spine will remain in tact & not get cut through. Then cut another piece of white card using the die with the little holes in it from the same set. Ink the edges of both pieces very softly with “Broken China” Distress Ink & then using foam tape, stick the eye oval onto the front of the card.


Now stamp and cut one set of flowers on white card using the “Small Classic Petunia” stamp & die set and two flower vines from the “Large Classic Petunia” stamp and die set using the “Watering Can Grey” ink.


Colour all these flowers & vines with “Pickled Raspberry”, “Broken China” & the leaves with the “Leaf Green” ink. Lightly spritz the backs with water & use shaping tools to create flower shape.
When all dry, for the two blue flowers layer up one of the larger petal with one of the smaller petals & for the pink flower layer up two of the smaller size petals.

Snip both vines into pieces & construct card front as per my sample. Dab a small amount of glue in all flower centre & sprinkle with a small amount of white Prills. Using your finger, dab a tiny bit of the turquoise Kindy Glitz onto all the blue petals.


Lastly either paint or heat emboss a card greeting & stick it onto card front. I have used a “Happy Mothers Day” greeting but this card would suit a birthday, get well, thank you or most occasions for that matter.



   Well thats all for today.
See you back here soon with more.

Until then...
