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.

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.

Adore Perfect Moments

Hi everyone 
Candy here today  I am sharing with you all a 6X6 inch easel card.
I have used Memory Maze chipboard items and the pink glitter.
Today I have created a  shaker card.


The larger heart on the out side I covered with some of the paper.
 But before doing that I cut out a piece of acetate in the shape of a heart. Traced it and the glued it onto the front  of the heart. Then glued the paper over the top.
 I then cover the heart with glue and sprinkled well with the glitter.
I added two layers of foam tape to the back of the heart to give plenty of area for the glitter and sequins to move around. 
The Adore heart I painted with white gesso and while this was wet
sprinkled the glitter over the top.
 And the perfect Moments labels I white washed with gesso and then used a black gel pen to make  the words darker and show up.

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.

Beautiful

Hi everyone today I have created another 6x6 inch card for
you using the Memory Maze chipboard designs.


Using a 6x6 inch card base
Cut one piece of pattern paper at 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches and another at
5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches.
 Distress using an edge distresser or your scissors around all the edges.
Tape the bigger pattern paper down first then the second using foam tape to give some
dimension.

Tear a piece of pattern paper approximately 2 inches wide.
Distress around the edges of this piece. 
Cut a white doily in half and tape one half to the left
 and one to the right sides of your card.
Tape the 2 inch pattern paper over the gap of the doily.

Cover the butterfly tag with pattern paper and cut away the butterfly at the top of the tag.
Ink around the edge of the tag and using foam tape, tape over the 2 inch strip of 
pattern paper.

Now for the butterfly, word and the fairy. Cover well with
white paint or gesso.
While they are wet cover generally with clear glitter
Leave to dry well.
When dry gently add some ink around the edges.

Place your butterfly back in the space it came from, using foam tape
to lift up.
Glue the Beautiful word down and then the fairy.
Add your flowers, leaves and the white liquid pearls to the corners of your card.
