Have a great day and hope the sun comes back soon.

Finn and Molly projects

Sharing two projects I made using the new Finn and Molly images and sentiments from Beccy Muir's designs. As always you get both the black and white images and the coloured ones. 

For both projects I made the backgrounds with paints and stencils. The card I also used an embossing folder on the background. The images were coloured with alcohol markers and cut out with dies. Lots of different dies were used on the bag and the card.

You can see what the other DT members have creation on Beccy's blog.

Simply Christmas release

These are cards made using Beccy Muir's new Simply Christmas release. You get B&W images and coloured images as well as sentiments. They are great images and very high quality so you can resize them well. 

The main images were printed and coloured with pencils and cut out. The backgrounds on the first and second were made using the pre-coloured images in the set. The sentiments are from the set as well.

Shadow box creation

My second post of the day. Tried to clean my craft room yesterday as I don't have much floor space left but got distracted. Found this shadow box frame I had for a few years and could not resist having a play.
 The sentiment I found on Pintrest and I used Memory Box dies to cut the layers. The large yellow flowers were stamped (Sheena Douglass stamps) with distress ink and cut out with the matching dies. The other yellow flowers were made with one of the flower layers. The leaves were stamped and cut out  (both Sheena Douglass stamp and die). The small flowers were made using Sue Wilson dies. The butterflies were Memory box dies. The silver background was made using silver foil and the green layer was made by putting it through a embossing leaf folder and using inks and foil as well. The pins used were handmade (made them a few months ago). Other dies used were Sizzix, Sue Wilson and Tattered lace.

I was inspired by my garden in summer which is full of flowers and butterflies.

Altered door hanger

Hope you are having a good Sunday. Bought this wooden door hanger and finally got around to playing with it. Firstly it was coated in gesso and then light blue paint added on top. The edges were distressed with brown paint and a sponge. The stamps on the background are Tim Holtz and the sentiment is Stamp-it. The main flowers are made from the Sizzix Zinnia dies and panpatels were used to colour the centres. The small roses were made using a die which came with a magazine. The leaves and other bits were dies from Sue Wilson and Marianne. The butterfly was made using two dies form Memory Box. The tag is one of the large Sizzix die.

Owl card

Wanted to share this card I made today. The background was made using Brusho crystals onto white card and once dry it was embossed. The owl image is one of Beccy Muir's digi image and was coloured with alcohol markers. The dies used are both from Sue Wilson collections. Really love this background and did not want to use it but you can't hold on to these things. 

My heart goes out to all those who have lost family and friends in the recent attacks. One day we will learn to live in peace with each other.
