Heart Wreath

The Privilege Club kit this month from Craftwork Cards is based on wreaths - 2 each in 3 colour schemes and it includes the new heart shaped wreaths.  Here is my first creation:

There is ribbon in the kit but I used some of my own for this wreath.  The backs of all of the flowers were sprayed using Dylusions inks and I sprayed the finished article with gold Spray and Sparkle.  I must confess that I used all of the die cuts from this colour scheme as I like lots of layers on my blooms!

Here are a few close ups of the flowers:

With Love

Here is a card which I made for a swap on a card group that I'm in. 

I've used a 6 by 6 kraft blank and added two hearts cut from Bohemian papers.  I scrunched up the front one and then rubbed over it with Distress Ink.

The wording was stamped with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink using the Printer's Blocks stamp which are my favourite stamps at the moment.  I crushed the Candi and stuck it on upside down using glue before adding pearls to the centre of each one. 

Doesn't the kraft card work well with the Bohemian papers?

Curly Whirly Wreath

I just love the curly whirly flowers from Craftwork Cards and so had to have a go at making a curly whirly wreath!

This was made using the Curly Whirly Candle Ring in Sweet Pea.  I sprayed the back of all of the flowers with a purple Glimmer Mist spray and was quite surprised by how much this changed the overall appearance of the finished wreath.  Rather than using the ribbon in the kit I used some purple and cream seam binding and this also changed the overall look.

Here are a couple of close ups showing the detail on the flowers:

I sprayed the finished wreath with silver Spray and Sparkle to make it more durable and to give it a shimmery finish.

Here's the final card of the the four:

Again I think this shows how well the papers work together.

And here's the third card:

This time I cut some of the flowers in half to create a different effect.  I'll post the fourth one tomorrow.

Happy New Year - Card 2

Here's the second card which I made:

These papers co-ordinate together really well.

I'll be back tomorrow with the third card.

Happy New Year!

I've made four Happy New Year cards using Lost and Found papers by My Mind's Eye which I bought from Craftwork Cards.  I'll post these over the next few days.

Here's the first one:

I used the Printer's Block stamps from Craftwork Cards to create the lettering on all of the four cards.  These are my all time favourite stamps from Craftwork Cards.
