Swirly Heart Home Decor

Hi Everybody,
Thanks for your lovely comments. Sorry I haven’t been visiting your blogs, I’ve been away at the caravan for a few days. Back now and trying to post using my mobile. Well, what can I say, the app is quite good for short posts that one doesn’t want to link back to … plus the pictures need to be taken the ‘right’ way round as editing is very fiddely … actually I must admit that I haven’t as yet found a way to edit the pictures taken by and uploaded from my mobile. hmmm maybe I am just a dinosaur …
For this post I tried my hand at making a piece of home decor from some die-cut and embossed hearts … suppose I could still enter it in the Out of a Hat Creations.

Hope you like it.
Back tomorrow catching up with your blogs.
Happy Crafting!!! 😀

Quick Challenge

Hello Everybody,

Just a quick post today.

I wanted to enter 2 challenges

the first one is at Addicted to Stamps and More and requires you to use markers

the second one is at Out of a Hat Creations and is all about Hearts & Swirls.

I got loads of ideas about both, some more time consuming than others, so I decided to combine both and use one of my old favourites … the stamp I mean. It is one of my first ones and still going strong, Motif Blocks by FUNSTAMPS it is.

Hearts & Swirls

For the background I stamped the image several times in London Fog Memento ink onto the base card, roughly masked some white borders off at the top and bottom before spraying over the stamped images with Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue and So Saffron Stamp’n’Write Markers (by Stampin’Up!) using my colour spritzer tool (also SU).

I then stamped the image again this time in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured some of it in using Promarkers. I then cut the coloured in image out and mounted it on my base card using 3-D foam pads. Adding some gems, glitter glue, ribbon and peel off finished the card off.

That’s it from me for today.

See you soon … Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
