Infusions with Kay Carley

Last month I joined Kay Carley at The Craft Barn to play with her new range of stamps from PaperArtsy and their new Infusions.

This is my version.........

I mounted mine onto black card then onto a 7x7" linen effect card base which I stamped using the same sprigs in Sepia ink.

I used the Blackcurrant Infusions for mine........

There were lots of layers of Fresco paints, stencils and inks.

Kay's original can be found here.

Thanks Kay and Sandy for a fabulous day.

Live, Laugh, Love...........

I recently made a card for a friend which I can share at a later date and had a few blooms left over, so, I made this card.

It's 6x6" with a new frame die from Spellbinders to which I added a JOFY stamped sentiment.

The blooms are Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose with snowflakes and stamen punches in the centre. The fronds are from a set of Tonic dies.

Create-a-card Base dies

Loving these newly released base dies from Crafter's Companion.
They are nesting dies so you can create lots of different sized cards plus apertures, frames, the list is endless.

These are the samples I made for the release.

This one is Louise which I embossed with a brick wall folder to create a church window.

This is Stacey using the Love and Romance Collection from Sara's Signature.

An this one is Ruth using Sheena's dies...

 And Just for Men - Sara's Signature Collection.

Darice Embossing folders from Crafter's Companion

Fabulous sets of 6x4 Darice Embossing folders are now available on Hochanda.

These are the samples I made with some of them.

 I loved dressing this mannequin with ribbons and angel hair.

I ran this though twice on the jade card to double the width then cut the white panel down slightly.

Very bright and cheerful here using Distress Ink, Spectrum Aqua and Spectrum Sparkle pens!
