Here is my creation for this week:

Magic Mushrooms

I love this little stamp, it can be used for many occasions. I stamped directly onto my white card and stamped the image again on a separate piece, I coloured the mushrooms, butterfly and the grass using Promarkers. I cut out the little flower shape and rectangle with my craft knife and doodled the dashed dotted border, rounded the edges and attached it to a piece of red card using 3D foam. As you can see the red card shows through the cut out flower and rectangle.

I then coloured and decoupaged the mushroom hats, shaped them and attached them in place using 3D foam pads before finishing off by adding a few red gems.

Over to you now. Hope you feel somewhat inspired as I’d love to see your creations.

That’s it from me for today.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!! 🙂

Here is what I used: Stamps from Woodware,; real red card from Stampin’Up!, gems, white card, Promarkers and fine liner pen from my stash

Here is my creation for this week:

Spiced Paisley Birthday

I randomly stamped my background in crumb cake, rounded one corner and blended the edges with crumb cake. I then cut a piece of riding hood red and another one of marina mist card, punched a border along one side each and mat and layered them onto a white base card. I attached a piece of marina mist ribbon and stamped the sentiment in black. To finish I stamped the larger paisley shape twice, cut it out and layered it as shown in the picture and added some glitter details using a gel pen. You might have to click on the picture and zoom in to see this detail as it doesn’t show well in the picture.

Over to you now. Hope you feel somewhat inspired as I’d love to see your creations.
