Altered coasters

Got these coasters through the door from a couple of charities so decided to alter them. While having a tidy of my craft room I round some Moon Glows Starburst stains (bought over 14 years ago) and decided to used them. Firstly I coated the coasters with black Gesso and let it dry. The sprayed a piece of white paper with two of the shimmer stains and then used another one with a stencil over the top. Really like how the backgrounds came out. The images are all from Club Scrap which I have had for years. It's nice to get around to using things I bought so long ago.

Thanks for the visit and have a great day.
To do what is right and just
is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
Proverb 21:3

Male card

Been trying to clean my craft room so no crafting for a couple of day. Wanted to share this card I made a few days ago. The background was stamped with distress inks and the image is a stamp by Papermania. Have a great day.

A person's wisdom yields patience;
it is to one's glory to overlook an offence.

Purple chalk board

Good morning everyone. Thankfully I took this photo yesterday because it is raining buckets at the moment. Finished this project I was working on yesterday. Had some purple chalk board paint I bought over 13 years ago and finally decided to use it. The butterflies and stars are grunge board which was coloured with distress inks and then Stickles. I made the butterfly bodies with craft wire.The flower is a a set of stamps by The Artistic Stamper and the vine is a die by Tattered lace. 
Used gilding was on the edges.

We Will Remember Them!

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. 
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Blue and silver card

Hope you are having a lovely morning. This is a card I made yesterday. One of the backgrounds I made before using metallic paint, mask  and then embossed it. I used gilding wax on the edges. The bauble die was free with a magazine which I cut three times and stuck them on silver card and cut them out.  The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp which I cut and embossed. 

The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it. 
Proverb 10:22

Owl card

What a beautiful day it was yesterday. Such a shame I can't play golf for a while. The good news is that the ankle is not broken, the bad news is that I may have torn a tendon or muscle so months of taking it easy.  Will have a lot of time to craft!
The background of this card was made by stamping a Club Scrap image with green distress ink. Then embossing it with clear embossing powder and faux stitched around the edges. The owl is a die from Marianne designs which I intend to use a lot more. 
Hope you have a wonderful day.

For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.

Golden card

No sunshine today so a great day to stay in my craft room. Made this card yesterday to add to my Christmas card stash. The background was made by firstly stencilling the gold paint through a round stencil. When it was dry it was then double embossed, first with the small dot folder and then the snowflake folder. The fishtail background was made in the same way but with a little green added. The flowers and snowflake was cut from glitter paper I made. I sued Die-namic die, Marianne die and a Spellbinders die. The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp embossed with gold embossing powder. 

Those who give to the poor will lack nothing, 
but those who close their eyes to them receive many curses.
Proverb 28: 27

White on white Christmas card

Hope it's a dry day today. It's been dry here but windy and cold. Made another Christmas card for my stash which is getting much bigger. 
The background layer was dry embossed with a Couture creations mini poinsettia embossing folder. The next layer was a die from Spellbinders and then the layer above was a Hero Arts stamp (|Lattice) embossed with white embossing powder. The flower is the Tattered Poinsettia die by Sizzix cut from pearl vellum.
