Mini Mittens!

Good morning!

I've got some MDF mittens to share with you today:



These have been made using our MDF blank set of Mini Mittens.

The stamped flowers are our Ditsy Stitches which launched on Create & Craft on the 9th of December.

We've also used pearls and some twine to embellish (we'll be bringing the twine to C&C on the 2nd of Jan in our Rustic Ribbons selection!)

And finally, the tattered lace dies used were the Dotty Border and the Florentine Flourish.

Have a lovely day,

Hayley

New Releases!

Good Morning!

I just wanted to share a couple of projects with you today to celebrate our new Christmas releases!



This card was made with some upcoming papers that will be on Create & Craft early October! I love the colours here so I've been using them on everything!

I've used the Partridge stamp onto Kraft card, cut it out in a tag shape and layered onto black card, repeating the tag shape.



This has been layered onto a doily and a little twine bow added (you can get twine in our lace & pearl packs from C&C!), I've also added a diamanté that I've coloured with a promarker - look out for these on our next C&C show!

When layering up the card, I've used a Black card base, Kraft card layer and then began with my backing papers. I stamped a Handwritten Sentiment in the top right of the card too, this one is my favourite to use!

The die used down the edge is the Dotty Border from Tattered Lace, cut from Kraft card again. 



The flowers were made using the Poinsettia Layers - I stamped them onto white card and coloured with Poppy & Burgundy promarkers - the leaves are two petals from the image coloured with Pear Green promarker.

And finally, I die-cut some Frond Finesse Flourishes (Tonic) from black card to fill in!

I hope you like it :)


Don't forget to grab your favourites online now:

Tattered Lace Challenge: Decadence

Good Morning!

Well it's another month gone and another card for the Tattered Lace challenge. This month we've got the theme of decadence, and I'll be honest: I had to google it!
Here's our DT card:
So for this one, I went for a deep colour since Decadence is about indulging in luxury! And obviously, I went for the most luxurious topper I could find: our Dresser (which is one of my favourites!) I coloured it with some Promarkers and added a sprinkling of Diamond glitter to the purple parts.

I die-cut the topper using the Westminster die and layered it onto a wine piece of backing paper to highlight the detail - this was also distressed a little using Gathered Twigs.

I've used some seam binding for a bow (and of course the new bowmaker... which is incredible!) and added a metal charm too - with a pearl in the centre.

Backing papers are all from the Gorgeous Gifts CD rom which was recently added to our website, a doily and some Kraft card too!

I used the Chelsea corner to add some detail onto one layer (mid-right of the card), a couple of strips of the Scallop Border down the central layer too. And a couple of diamond hat-pins!

Finally, to embellish it all (apart from a few lines of pearls), I used the tatty flower from Large Essentials, stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento onto Kraft card and used the stamens to twirl 'puff-ball' flowers, the odd shop-bought blossom and then some ferns to fill in!

Hope you enjoy this months challenge over on the Tattered Lace blog!

See you soon,

Hayley xx

A Christmas MDF Clock!

Good Evening!

Wow, the storm has just subsided here and the entire time it was thundering and lightening, I was preoccupied with this gorgeous MDF clock from Inky Doodles!

I don't know if you caught Sarah's show earlier today, but it inspired me to dig out the clock that's been gathering dust for the past few weeks and put it to good use! So... here's my creation:


I've used some of our upcoming stamp sets which launch at 1pm on Tuesday on this - above, I covered the base layer in kraft card and stamped a snowflake stamp (from the Swirly Tree stamp set) with versamark, then I embossed it with clear to darken the snowflake a little. I wanted something subtle, that wasn't printed from a CD.

The next layer, I used Creative Expressions Double Sided Sticky Sheets to cover the entire layer in Treasure glitter! The next layer used some burgundy printed backing paper from the new Simply Christmas CD and then finally, I repeated the sticky-sheet step to add glitter to the roof! The circular clock piece, I covered again with burgundy paper and added pearls to the pre-marked holes for the numbers.


My 'pendulum' is a couple of the MDF tags that come in the set (I have LOTS left over too!) and these have been distressed using Gathered Twigs, stamped a bauble in Memento, heat embossed all over with clear powder and added some Treasure glitter with a quickie glue pen. I tied these on with a bit of garden string too!


The large floral decorations are from the Striped Delights stamp set, I stamped and embossed in Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold and glittered, added detail to the stamens or coloured with 'Ruby' promarker, to create the different coloured flowers.


The baubles are from the Decorative Baubles stamp set which launches on Tuesday, with these I heat embossed them in Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold again and coloured with the Ruby promarker, then added a sprinkle of glitter!

Lots of pearls were added too, plus a sentiment from the Swirly Tree stamp set (O Christmas Tree)!

I hope you like it!

Have a fabulous weekend,

Hayley xx
