Till roll swap

So I signed up to do a till roll swap. Rule was to make 3 foot long strips of artwork using the till roll. So here is what I made…

I did lots of stamping and used washi tape. I also added small bits of text print, raffle tickets, stamped sentiments and some correction tape and posca pens.

I added the main feature of the images which I actually received in a swap and some Paperartsy fresco finish paint. Then I used some foiling which I hadn’t used in ages so that we fun and pens for doodling.

Then I did a bit of hand sewing on each to add texture…. this you have to be gentle with or choose areas where there are other layers adhered to strengthen.

I also used my heat tool to make the thermal roll react which creates such a cool effect.

Love how these came out.

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: Use some red

I decided for this weeks DT contribution for CHNC to use some washi tape to add red on this card as I rarely remember to use it!

I used two strips of washi tape I was gifted across the card and then chose a patterned paper that had a red dot in it.

Next I added the focal image of the little penguin and coloured him with pencils.

Finally some red gems to keep with the red theme!

Entering this into the Christmas in July challenge at Digidoodle studio

Happy crafting!

Till roll play #2

So the till roll play I shared with you a few days ago continued… Three pieces were used for ATCs…

I added the goat image to the middle one, but the others I just added doodles and some stencilled words to finish them off.

The till roll panels did the rest of the work!

Another couple of projects to share but they will need to wait for another blog post.

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: washi tape

I love washi tape… I have a lot of it… but rarely use it in cardmaking.

So this week Hazel is prompting me to get it used for this week’s CHNC challenge.

I grabbed some Christmas themed washi and decided to keep it simple using it to frame the card top and bottom and place the main card topper on an angle.

The main image is from an old Making Cards magazine and I’ve used a few images for my CHNC contributions over the past few months. Love this cute pig!

Calendar – November 2019

For Christmas I gave my parents and my auntie a calendar I had made with a postcard sized piece of art on each month… so today I am sharing their November artwork.

I decided to create a background using Paperartsy fresco finish paints and then chose a Visible Image stamp to emboss onto the background.

I wanted some contrast and chose some washi tape and a strip of alcohol inked glossy cardstock to go down one side.

Then to add some shimmer I stamped the smile for the same stamp set using Sparks paint. Love the shimmer to this. Finished off with the month stamp from Paperartsy.

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC… Buttons

I am so late in blogging this week… Sorry! Better late than never I suppose!

So the challenge for CHNC this week is “buttons”.

Made this cute card with a painty background and a digi stamp snowman and some sparkly washi tape… And of course some buttons!

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: something beginning with H

I decided for this week’s craftyhazelnuts Christmas challenge I would choose an image with Holly in it to cover the requirement Hazel set for us to include some thing beginning with H.

I chose this Turtle Dove image from Creative Stamping magazine and coloured it with promarkers.

Then I layered the image and the patterned paper with glitter washi tape and used a gold pen to edge it.

I then added it all to a green card blank.

Happy crafting!

DT: CHNC: washi tape

Hello!

Gosh I really haven’t been blogging regularly… just not been feeling well enough to sit and craft and so out of the habit I guess. Thankful I have some DT things that make me get my creative time in and also that some of them I have prepped ahead of time! This is one of those kind of posts…

This week the theme Hazel has set us at CHNC is to use washi tape so I kept my card really simple and let the sparkly washi tape do all the work!

I chose the three colours of sparkly washi I had and laid them down in strips. Then I added the First edition die cut wreath which I layered up 3 times to give it dimension.

Then I added the Tim Holtz sticker sentiment onto a strip of red cardstock and called the whole thing done! Sometimes simplicity is best!

Happy crafting!

Colour palette inchies

Another swap to share… this time some inchies using the following colour palette…

The colour palette reminded me of a sunflower against blue skies.

Here is what I made…

I used blue ink to smoosh the watercolor the inchies in and then stamped using the dark brown archival ink and the Hardwood stamp.

I then added the spotty washi to three of the inchies and strips of the yellow washi to two of the inchies. Into the strips I added the words sun flower.

Then I inked the edge of each inchie and added an embellishment sunflower from the stash. I then arranged them onto the yellow cardstock.

Love this bright and beautiful selection of inchies.

Happy crafting!
