Wedding card and matching gift bag

Hi everyone it is my turn to make a creation
using some wedding theme chipboard from Memory Maze.
I also chose the Kaisercraft Two Souls paper collection.
Using the black card base has really taken me out of my box,
but I did it. 

 I made a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch card

and also a medium size gift bag

 The card
I chose some pattern papers from the collection and cut them down
to fit onto the front of the card base.
I used an edge distresser around the edges
and taped them down. 
This is such a lovely collecion it was hard to decide.
I chose a few of the collectables for both the card and gift bag.
The gift bag I added the papers to the front also some lace
to the top and the piece for the top is raised to give some dimension.

I used two chipboard hearts and covered them well with some silver ink. 
This ink was very wet so I applied the silver embossing powder and hit it with
my heat gun. 
If you have a wet ink you can quickly add your embossing powder
this works well.
 Place these onto the fronts of the card and bag. 
Add the collectables, verse and some sequins.

Wedding Card and box

Hi everyone Candy Here
Today I have created a stunning Wedding card.
Using some of the chipboard pieces available from
I also made a box to go with the card but my camera had a miss fit and
I dont know why...

1. Using a 6 x6 inch card base. Mine was blue
2. Cut a piece of white cardsock at 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches and the embossed piece paper at 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches
3. Tape both of these to your card front.
4. Add a piece of netting over the embossed paper, this calmed down the colour a bit.
5. I cut the oval die from some of the blue card and aslso one from white card
6. Glue the fancy oval first , then the middle blue oval to the centre. Then add the white lattice over the blue
7. Glue on the flowers, pearl sprays etc onto your card.
8. Paint the wedding couple and the Congratulation word with white paint or gesso, while this is wet sprinkle with clear glitter and let dry. Add these to he front of your card also Liquid pearls around both oval pieces.

Hi everyone this month on Off the Rails
we the design team had to use the mood board as well as something recycled.
I thought and looked around my craft room
thinking what can I use.
I had a very large bag of tags that where given to me over the years
in different swap groups.
So I decided to use one of them as my recycled item.

I simply put the tag on a 4x8 inch white card base and
added a pattern paper underneath.

Here is the mood board

Just for you

Hi everyone I am up again with another tutorial
using Memory Maze products.
Today I have made a 6x6 inch card for you

Firstly start with your 6x6 inch card base, I have used white for this.
Cut your pattern paper at 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches
and tape to your card base.
 Then cut a second pattern paper at 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches. 
Now with the second paper tear approx a 4 inch strip off the right hand side.
Curl the torn edge and tape to the left side of your card base.
Cut the smaller piece at 5 5/8 inches length wise.
Curl the torn edge and tape to the left side as well.

Paint all your chipboard pieces and while they are drying 
cut a piece of the white glitter paper to fit inside the oval chipboard. 
I turned my glitter paper over and traced the oval with a pencil then
cut it out making a little bigger so I could glue to the back of the oval frame.

Cover the oval frame, butterflies both metal and chipboard with the
shabby white embossing powder.
Cut the end parts of the spring arrives flower and swirl piece.
And cover the three pieces with the gold embossing powder, also the word phrase.

Using foam tape under the oval frame tape to the front of your card.
Then add the 2 small scroll pieces to each side of the frame.
Then slide the larger piece under the curled paper.
Add your flowers , pearls and butterflies to your card.
Then go around the inner edge of the oval frame using the white liquid pearls.
Also add a little in the centres of the small gold flowers.

Two baby cards

Hi everyone welcome to my first 2019 blog post for Off The Rails .
wow how time is flying.

We the designers where set a challenge this month to choose another designers style.
I t was hard but I chose Luciana Warnouski.
I have been a follower of her for a long time. I just love her work.
I choose this layout as it has white space and it is something
I struggle with. I gave myself a double challenge to create a card using her layout.
So here goes....
I made two baby cards one for a girl and one for a boy.

And this is Luciana's layout I followed

A little bit of mixed  media on this one.

I started with a 6x6 inch card base.
Cut a piece of pattern paper at 57/8 x 5 7/8 inches.
Cut a plain white piece of cardstock at 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches
Using this piece of cardstock, spray with the mist.
Dry this well.
Then sprinkle the pixie powder carefully over the card. and then spray with the water.
Dry this well.
Using the script stamp and the ink pad, stamp in three corners.
Now add all your embellishments.
And using glue add to the petals of the flowers, along the phrase
and here and there around the edge of the card.
Then sprinkle with clear glitter to give some bling.
Don't worry if it looks white the glue will dry and it will be clear.
Tape the pattern paper to the front of the card base.
then add the decorated piece using foam tape.

I have made a card in pink as well. I have used the same tehniques
for that one as well.

Just for you

Hi everyone
I am back from a little break and ready to ctreate again.
Today I have made a lovely little girls card.
Using a fancy scroll and a word phrase.

I have started with a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch card base.
I cut the first pattern paper layer at 51/4x51/4 inches.
The second is cut from white glitter paper
 and it is cut at 5 x 5 inches.
The third is using another pattern paper and cut that one at 
4 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches
Distress around the edges of all three then tape the first two onto the
card base.
The third pattern paper curl the right top corner
use a little glue to hold this in place. Then tape onto the card using foam tape.
I have matted my photo and put foam tape underneath to raise it up.
Now for the corner swirl and the word phrase
all I did was give them a couple of coats of white ink. 
When dry glue onto your card.
Add a little piece of lace under the corner roll and then add some flowers
to finish off.

Hi everyone

using Memory Maze chipboard 

I have left most of the chipboard pieces in there natural state.
To tie in with the colour scheme of this card.

The Happy birthday word piece

Cover both pieces with some dimensional magic 
to give a little dimension and to stand out more.

Happy Birthday Card

Hi everyone
my turn again to showcase some chipboard from 
Memory Maze.
I decide to make another card.
This is for an order so I thought I would kill two birds with one stone
So the saying goes.

I made a 6 x 6 inch easel card.
This one is for a 2 year old boy.
Who loves machinery.
I found the front End loader and thought yes that was ideal.

I firstly painted the loader with white paint.
You can use gesso or paint for this.
I had some sharpie pens on  my desk I used the yellow for
the body and black for the tyres.
I then gave the tyres only a coat of dimensional magic.
While this was drying I found a happy Birthday word
and inked it with some black ink.
You may have to give a couple of coats to get a nice finish.
I have also used an acrylic 2018 heart.
