Christmas Blessings

 Welcome to another month of Christmas using a fabulous sketch from

Build your stash Holiday Cardmakers 

Here is the sketch for March 2022

I have used an older Uniquely paper range called Holly Jolly Christmas
to make this card.

My cards measure 4 1/4 x 6 inches
so the base paper is 4 x 5 3/4 inches and the strip along the bottom measures 4 x 1 1/4
that is cut from cardstock.
The check layer measures 1 x 1 7/8 inches.
That is layed flat onto the card base.
The middle section (photo of the bird) is 3 x 3 7/8
and the layer of card underneath is 3 1/4 X 4 inches.
This piece is raised on foam tape 
Then I tied a small bow using some ribbon.
 Glued it to the top of the circle sentiment then taped this to the bottom of the middle piece. 
Added a small flower to the side then using a black gel pen
went around the edge of the card base also the bird picture.

Congratulations Card

Hi everyone
Today I am sharing my tutorial for
Off The Rails Design Team post for May 2020

I used the mood board as inspiration to create this card.
it measures 5 x 7 inches
and I have sewn on the bodice of the manikin using pink glitter thread.

I have cut the gold matt to 4 7/8 x 6 7/8 inches and then the pattern paper to 4 3/4 x 6 3/4 inches
Edge distress around these then Tape these both together and place on the card front.

The next layer measures Cut more of the gold paper at 4 1/2 x 6 5/8 inches
and the pattern paper at 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches.
Distress around the edges of both then Tape these together.
place foam tape under this panel and tape to the front.

I added a piece of lace panel to the front using small amounts of glue under where you wont see it through the lace.

T he bodice was a clear sticker I had in my stash for a number of years so I pulled it out and stuck it to a white card stock and then sewed
using the thread where the holes where.

When you are finished sewing, glue onto the front. 
Then add the pearl swirls, flowers and sentiment.

This is the mood board I have used

Thank you so much

Hi and welcome everyone.
It has been a while since I have posted on here, between my granddaughter, 
my mum and life in general it has been hard to create.
But I am back and ready as ever.
Today I have created for the Off the Rails Scrapbooking Design team
a 5x7 inch card using Distress Oxides.

I have used spun sugar, tumbled glass and as I didn't have a yellow in the distress oxides
I used squeezed lemonade and it worked well. 
Sponge all the colours one by one over the front of your card base. 
Then when you are ready spray with some water and daube with a paper towel.
Then tape some gold spray over the top and let dry.

I used some wooden leaves from my stash and daubed cracked pistachio over the top.
Make sure you cover well

When these are all dry place your flowers, leaves, glass dome button, 
yellow and white twine.
this I just tied in a bow and doubled over and glued down under the flowers.
Also add the enamel dots around you card base.

Products used
Distress oxides - spun sugar, tumbled glass, cracked pistachio
Distress ink - Squeezed lemonade
Spray water bottle, gold spray, wooden leaves, 
yellow and white twine, glass dome buttons and enamel dots.

Part 1 Christmas Banner

Hi everyone Candy here with my latest
tutorial using the Memory Maze Chipboard.
Today I have created Stage 1 of my Christmas Banner. 
It measures approx 8 inches in length and 8 inches wide.

I started with the Christmas Angel decoration piece. 
Give it a good coat of gesso or white paint.
Let this dry then coat the middle (angel and leaves) with some versamark.
Give a good coat of the white/gold embossing powder.
Using string/twine doubled and a glue gun, wrap around the edges of the frame
part of the decoration. There will be some ares you can't wrap but 
when you have finished wrapping cut the twine in lengths and glue in the spaces.
Cut your triangle banner and glue the decoration onto the top middle of the banner.
Add the lace around the edges, flowers and leaves.
Dry brush some white gesso over the top of everything using a dry brush.
Punch a hole in each top corners of the banner, add a large eyelet
and thread some twine through.
