Daring Cardmakers - Another Dimension

Have you been following the Daring Cardmakers over the last few weeks?  There has been some amazing creations and this week is no different.

Kathy has a fantastic one this week where she is daring us to make a 3D card, here is what I made


I love making these pop up cards!  Kind of a wee bit addicted to them!
The collection I used was the {Papermania Capsule Collections Lincoln Linen}.  I also used the {Xcut Leaves Die} and the {Xcut Delicate Flourishes Embossing Folder} to add some tesxture to the base of the box before I glued it together.

There are some more amazing cards over on the {DCM blog} so please so pop on over and take a look!

Have a very Happy Easter

Using Hazel & Ruby's Stencil Masks On A Layout

A while ago I won some of Hazel and Ruby's stencil masks and they are just amazing!  I first saw Hazel and Ruby when CHA was in full swing and just adored what I my eyes were weeing!
When the stencil masks arrived  I was keen to have a play with them and this time I decided to use the {Central Park Alpha} stencil mask on a layout ....


The stencil masks are SO easy to use and once I started other ideas came rushing into mind so I bet it won't be long before I use them again!


To create the title I first placed my photo to the page (without gluing in place!!) to act as a guide for where I wanted the stencil masks to go.  I then added the alphabet, I overlapped some parts of the letters for an continuous feel before spritzing them with some of the Artiste Spritzing Inks.


Then came the fun reveal bit!!  I laid a paper towel over the masks and soaked up the excess from the spritz.  Next I gently removed the masks and put them back on the sheet for another day!  This is how it turned out and I really love the contrast.


I created the rest of the layout using Hazel and Ruby's {Gone Typo} collection and used the wonderful {Fat Roll Colorblock Quotes Washi Tape}, which I couldn't resist purchasing from Create and Craft when Hazel and Ruby where on there, to add some extra quotes.

I would highly recommend these products to create some fun items with!

It's All About The Money

Good morning everyone, I am quickly popping in to share with you my card that I made for this weeks.


This week we were dared to make a card with the money theme.  I decided to make a money wallet.  I love the Docrafts designer die-cuts which are available in some of their collection and they make a perfect flap for money envelopes

Hope you will pop on over to the blog and join in the fun!

It's Fairytales over on the DCM blog

Hello everyone today over on the {Daring Card Makers blog} it is all about fairy tales.
I dug into the the new Gorjuss product from Do Crafts and made this card .....



A lovely lady at my demo told me about these types of card called card in a box.  I found a little tutorial on line by Monica Gale on the web and had a go myself.



I love the 3D effects that these cards can give and the beauty is they fold flat!
The rest of the DT have made some fab cards so please stop by the blog
Have a great weekend
