Crafting Ireland Guest Tutorial - Waltzingmouse Stamps

Good morning! I have a guest tutorial over on the Crafting Ireland blog today - featuring Vintage Garden - Packet Seed from Waltzingmouse Stamps

Supply List: 
Waltzingmouse Stamps - Vintage Garden Seed Packet
White & Wine Cardstock
Brick wall Embossing Folder
Distress Markers
Foam Dots or Tape
Staz-On or Archival Ink (Black)

Fold the wine cardstock in half on the long side and cut in two, to make two card bases of 105mm wide x 248mm long. You will only need one base. 

Cut a piece of white card at 100mm x 243mm and emboss with the Brick Wall folder

On watercolour card, stamp out the flower from Vintage Garden - Packet Seed with either Staz-On or Archival black ink. Colour it up with distress markers, then fussy cut it leaving a little white border all around.

Adhere the flower to the card front with 3D foam and stamp out the sentiment carefully, pressing down firmly to ensure even coverage over the embossed bricks. Then adhere the whole panel to the card base with foam tape, for extra dimension.

Hope it inspires

Chi-Chi Memories GDT - Candy Girl

Good afternoon!! Today I am sharing a Guest Designer card I made for Chi Chi Memories. Such fun, cute images and I am excited to be creating with them for the next couple of months. 

The image I've featured on my card is one of the new April Release images, called Candy Girl

Don't you just love that HAIR! I coloured her up with copic markers and then cut her out with a classic circle die -first cutting around the hair so that goes outside the circle. I matted it to a scalloped circle and adhered it to the card with 3D foam. 

You can find more Chi Chi inspiration over on the Chi Chi Memories blog and on their Facebook Page

Have a great day
