Tealight Gift Card

Today I'd like to show you more from the Unity KOTM . Im using the stamp with the lights and the sentiment that goes perfectly with it.

I used a Lori Whitlock file from the Silhouette store to make the basis of the card. I've gone around the edges with a Tim Holtz distress ink. The stamp and sentiment have been versamarked onto card and then I've used Wow Metallic Brass embossing powder over the top.

Gorjuss - Waiting

So today I decided to use another of my new Gorjuss sets. Slowly working my way through them! I have a load of wooden 10x10 blocks to decorate and I used one for this project. It could be a coaster or maybe a little wall plaque.

First I mod podged the block and then used a paper pad from Craft Asylum to decorate it. The stamps are from the Gorjuss set - Waiting. She has been coloured with Copics and Shin Hans and then paper pieced. The sentiment is from Sam Poole which I chopped into single words. I then added a couple of layers of the mod podge over the top. 

I would like to enter this into the Sketch Saturday Challenge as I used the sketch to help me design this.

No2 of the new Gorjuss stamp sets- The Friendly Hedgehog

So today I sat down and made a quick CAS card with another of the new Gorjuss stamps. This one is from a set called "The Friendly Hedgehog".

I've made the card blank and sentiment with the Cricut Explore. For the image I stamped it out, coloured her face and hair with copics and shin hans and then paper pieced her clothes with the Neroli paper pad.

Distressed Box

I haven't blogged or crafted in ages work has got in the way but now I've gone from full time to part time I'm hoping to get back to it. So I was wandering around The Works and saw some wooden blanks. This was one of them.

So I made it into a distressed box.

So the first step was to modge podge the box when that was dry I painted it with some Docraft Acrylic paint in "Sea Spray". After two coats I stamped onto it using Sheena Douglas stamps randomly and pressed some hard, some soft to get the distressed effect. I then used Frantage in Shabby Blue.
I've picked up a few blanks so I'll be showing them in the next few weeks xx

Quirky Quilts New Home Card

It's my turn on the Little Claire blog to make a Friday project.
I have made a lovely new home card using the new Quirky Quilts papers and an old favourite of mine the "At Home" stamp set.

This one can be a bit fiddly with paper piecing the image but you could colour it instead.
I have used:

Little Claire "At Home" stamp set.
Little Claire Paper Pack - Quirky Quilts
Blank white card
Clear embossing powder

1. First off I used the purple sheet of Quirky Quilts papers to cover the blank card but I did add a little grey distress ink around the edges.

2. I then stamped the image onto a piece of white card using the memento black ink and then I clear embossed it. 

3. I paper pieced the image using the green and pink piece of Quirky Quilts papers. I again inked the edges and matted it onto a piece of pale blue card. Then the card was inked. I adhered the image to the card using 3D pads.

4. I then cut out some of the hexagons from the purple sheet of Quirky Quilts paper and edged them with the distress ink.

5. Next I  embossed them a little to give them some shape.

I then randomly adhered them over the flat hexagons using 3D pads to give them a raised look.

I think this gives the card a lovely quilted look and it's a great idea for a new home card.
