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. C

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 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

Happy Birthday Aussie theme

Welcome to my first blog post for 2019. Yikes did I say 2019 the years are moving faster I think. Today I have created a 4 x 8 inch card using some chipboard pieces from Memory Maze. This card is created using an Aussie theme.  Cut your patrern paper to 3 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches and tape to the base of your card. Glue some green hessian along the bottom Cut some leaves, using some green paper and  the kaisercraft die or anyone you have at home. Paint the base of the windmill with some brown paint. Then use some grey paint or grey colour paste and daube here and there to make a weathered look. Paint the windmill blades with silver paint and add a button in the middle. Glue the windmill to the left side of the card base. Add the verse then the wooden leaves. Add the koala towards the top of the windmill adding the die cut leaves to the hands of the koala.
