Snowflake Tree Mask

Apologies for the lack of posts of the last few days but I have been playing catch-up and trying to get organised for the big day next week. Hopefully you are all better prepared than me !!

I have been having a “tidy up” in my craft room now all the cards have been made and sent and I have a few more cards that I have not posted on here that have either been made using up bits and pieces left over from class cards or in the case of today’s cards playing with different mediums through a mask.

I used a starry tree mask in my last class from Creative Expressions but saw the snowflake tree mask from the same range and thought it would make some more quick and easy cards. So hopefully you might get a few ideas for cards for Christmas next year.

First one uses Wow Platinum embossing powder and I have used a dauber to sponge Versamark ink through the stencil then sprinkled and heated the embossing powder. The sentiment from Woodward has been stamped on some heat resistant acetate with Black Stazon ink. The frame is the Presscut stitched rectangle dies.

Second one same embossing powder and a little snowflake stamp to create the background sentiment is from Craftwork cards.

Third one uses Distress Oxides to sponge through the mask and then I stamped the Marianne Christmas Song stamp across it. Finished of with some glittery gems.

Last one Distress Oxides again but this time I cut the tree out and mounted it on Black and added another circle sentiment from Craftwork Cards

I will be popping back with a few more ideas tomorrow.


Bridge Card

This is the last card I’m posting using the Savannah Craftwork Cards kit. I call it a bridge card and its uses some Kraft cardstock for the base and one of the square die cuts from the kit.

I added a few of the flowers and one of the bows. Finished off with a sentiment die cut

Savannah Craftwork Cards kit part 3

A few more cards I made with this kit . For this card I die cut a circle aperture using a plain circle die. The bow is included on one of the die cut sheets. A few of the flowers and come candi and sentiment. The circle die cut topper is attached to the back of the card.

This elephant card uses one of the papers and a bow. One of the flowers and candi and a sentiment die cut.

This DL card uses one of the papers, some candi and a sentiment die cut.

and lastly for today, this card which uses one of the circle die cut waste sheets to make a frame. You do loose one of the corners but I covered it up with some of the flowers.

Back tomorrow with the last ones from this kit and then its back to some more Christmas card ideas.



Savannah kit from Craftwork Cards part 2

A few more cards from last weeks class using this great kit that is suitable for men and children as well as ladies.

A couple of very quick and easy cards just using the papers and die cut sentiments and flowers from the kit.

All of these cards are large square cards and use nothing besides what’s in the kit.


Back tomorrow with a few more


Savannah Kit from Craftwork Cards

Change from Christmas cards over the next few days. Last week I held a Craftwork Cards class using their Savannah kit. I will post the cards over the next few days.

First up are two versions of a Diorama card, one with a circle aperture using one of the circle die cuts from the kit behind. I just used a basic circle die to make the aperture on the front .

The second version is the same size, just using a square die and one of the square die cuts from the kit. All the papers, flowers and die cuts are included in the kit.

Back tomorrow with some more ideas


Craftwork Cards Christmas Past collection part 2

Back again with a few more ideas for the Christmas Past pack I used in class.  The first card is actually one of the 6×6 sheets from the paper pad. I took two  square straight edged layering dies, placed them onto the paper after I had trimmed it down to size to fit the card and then run it through my machine. Attached the largest piece to a square of Kraft card, then added foam pads onto the second square and attached to card matching up the pattern. The last square goes in with two layers of foam pads behind it and again match up the patterns. I used some Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink around the edges to give it more raised look. Finished off with a banner sentiment from the dies cut sheets.

Second card is very quick and is just four rectangles of the patterned papers and a matted Father Christmas image with one of the bows on the bottom. A sentiment and some Candi to finish off. The card blank is 7″x5″.

Last one for today uses one of the scalloped edge die cuts, together with a sentiment and one of the bows. Just a strip of patterned paper down the side and I used the Sue Wilson Poinsettia die to cut out some flower from one of the patterned papers. I made some little glitter dots using Stickles Diamonds glue for the centres.

Back tomorrow with the last few cards.  If you want to keep upto date with our blog posts we now have a subscribe button on the right hand column, fill in your email address and get an email sent directly to you every time we post something on here.


Craftwork Cards Christmas Past

Craftwork Cards Collection packs are this months product of the month. I decided on the Christmas Past collection to use in class. With my half of the kit I made ten cards but you can easily replicate the cards featuring the Father Christmas die cuts as you get a lot in the kit. So as not to make this a huge post I will show the cards over the next few days.

First up a shaker card using on the Father Christmas die cuts. I used the Presscut Stitched Rectangles to create a frame to hold the acetate window and the Creative Expressions Iced Snow Glitter Jewels.  The bows are in the pack as well as coordinating Candi. Lots of sentiment die cuts to choose from as well as a paper sheet full of them to cut out.

The second card  uses another Father Christmas image, simply trimmed leaving some of the white showing around the edge and some of the patterned papers in the pad and some Candi.

Last one for today uses Stitched Frame dies again to create a tartan frame and mat of card behind. The Father Christmas is actually on one of the papers that I trimmed down to fit inside the frame. I did some fussy cutting of Holly from another paper to go in the corners. Candi again on the corners and a sentiment from the die cuts.

Back tomorrow with some more ideas. This class is being repeated on Saturday 28th at 2.00pm places are limited.
