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
Candy here bringing you another 6x6 inch easel card
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 
I inked with the green chalk ink and the 30 I used the red ink.
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.

Congratulations card with matching box

Hi everyone
Today I have created a decorated card and matchng box.
I have used for the card base a 5x7 inch white card.
And for the box a 6x8x3/4 inch box
which I purchased from Office works.

For the card I cut two pieces of pattern paper.
One measuring 5x7 inches and the other 4 7/8 x 6 7/8 inches
distress around both of these pieces. Tear a V in the top one just to add 
a bit of texture.
Tapr these to the card base and curl some of the edges to give a distressed look.

With the vintage frame and the two vintage corner flourishes
paint with either gesso or white paint.
While this is wet spray some coffee spray and daub with a paper towel
to take off some of the colour. I then added some fine clear glitter
 to give a little bling.
When this was dry daub some silver ink here and there over the three
pieces. Then give them a coat of dimensional magic/
Let this dry.

I placed the square frame to the left of the card added the two flourishes.
One to the bottom and the other to the top.
Add all your embellishments to your card.
The box is just covered inside and out.
Adding some lace, string pearls and lace applique to the front
of your box.

Using up your scraps of chipboard

Hello and welcome
Today I have created four tags using some chipboard.
I seem to have a lot of scrap pieces of chipboard left over from
different projects.
So I have decided to use some up.
I have created four tags measuring 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches.

Cover each of them with some pattern papers front and back.
Then add whatever you have in your scrap box.
I have used paper doilys, flowers, leaves, lace and
assorted embellishments.
One has a calendar on it and another a small note book.
You could put a magnet on the back and put on the front of your fridge
for a keepsake.

A little bit shabby

Hi everyone welcome, welcome, welcome...
Today I have used the colours of the mood board as my inspiration
and theme for my card.
The card base I have used measures 5 x7 inches.

This is the mood board for this month

Image may contain: text

Cut the background pattern paper to 4 7/8 x 6 7/8 inches
using an edge distresser or your scissors, distress around the four edges.
Crinkle up the top right side corner. 
Then tape to your card base. 
Don't tape to the edges just incase you want to add anything underneath.
Curl up the edges here and there.
I went through my stash and found some different
laces and some wedding veil tuile.
Nothing is really measured. I just layered the tuile then the laces
on top of each other to give some shabby layers.
 I fussy cut out 2 large and three smaller flowers. 
You can always use pre-made ones if you like.
I distressed around the edges of the flowers, 
then cut the petals to the centres.
Scrunch them up then straighten a little.
Glue one large and one smaller flower on top of each other.
You will need two of these. Three flowers in total.
I added a little doily in the centre of the flowers and also some blue
string pearls.
Glue all these down then add some tuile and feather yarn underneath the flowers etc.

8 x8 inch Album

Handmade 8x8 Album

Hi everyone Candy here
sorry I have been awal for a while but been away
on holidays then when I came home no computer.
So hopefully all good now.
So today I have created an 8 x 8 inch album using
some  A4 chipboard as the cover.

I used 2 pieces of the A4 chipboard and cut an 8 x8 inch square from both.
using one of the left over pieces cut a piece at 4 x 8 inches this piece is for the spine.

Lay 2 pieces of white 12 x 12 inch card stock beside each other and
tape together. Using tape, tape around all edges and middles of your card stock
and lay onto your white card stock.
Centering the smaller one (spine) in the centre of the card stock.
Laving about 1/8 inch between the pieces.
This allows the book to bend.

Mitter the corners of the card stock

Use your bone folder to go around the edges of the book 
and then gently bend your pieces to fold over the edges.
Add some tape to these edges and tape down. 
Crease the center spine and also gently bend not to crack your card stock.

Cut 2 pieces of white card stock at 7 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches and also a piece at
3 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches this one is for the centre spine.
Tape down using plenty of tape as this will be opened and closed
you need it to be strong.
Now your base is finished.
