Christmas Stag

 Hello


I am guilty of not posting regularly on my blog.  I am going to try and remedy that.  

I made this card using stamps and Stencil by Inkylicious.  For the blending I used a distress oxide.




Thank you for taking the time to visit.

Thinking of you

Hello everyone

I thought I would share this card I made for a friend who is going through a bad time at the moment.  She has just received it and is over the moon and I am pleased it made her smile.

I used an edging die as the focal point with distress oxides as the background - here is the pic.....




 Thanks for taking the time to drop in and take a peek - much appreciated

Butterflies

I am now starting to post my cards individually so as to enter some challenges.  For this creation I used linen cardstock and unbranded die of butterflies.  I used distress oxide for the backing to show off these beautiful creatures.

Now for the pic

Christmas cards

 Hi again


Yes I have made it back with some more Christmas cards I put together today.  I used the same die cuts for the first three cards but different variations.  I bought the dies from Amazon - unbranded.



The following two are also unbranded dies


I hope you like as much as I enjoyed putting them together

Belated Birthday card

 Well here I am with my first post of hopefully many to come.  I realized it is a friends birthday today so out came my supplies.


I used Linen card stock for the base.  I used my Memory Box frames, really fiddly but worth the patience.  I blended three of my oxide ink pads, bundled sage, scattered straw and speckled egg over the centre of the die cuts.  I then splattered with water.  Once dry I  stamped my sentiment and adhered my poppy die cut to the side.


That's it really - I hope you like it.

Watch this space..........

 Hi all

I have decided to try and reignite my blog.  As many of you know I used to run two design teams, Altered Eclectics and Eclectic Ellapu where I had lots of fabulous designers working tirelessly for my blogs to showcase their work on a monthly basis to give others inspiration.  They were absolutely so talented.  I was also a member of many design teams. Unfortunately I became ill and no longer had any aspirations to make anything at all. I was heavily into mixed media art and altering objects.  I decided a couple of months ago to restart concentrating on making cards.  

I will on occasion showcase some of my makes now and then and maybe enter some challenges in blogland and on Facebook pages.

Anyway that's my very short announcement and will be posting in the very near future

Anyway for my first post I have die cut an edging of a tulip.  Die is branded as I have no idea where I bought it from.

Here goes - hope you like it.

Altered Eclectics March Challenge

Hi everyone

For this months challenge I have used dismantled necklaces and tried my hand at beading.  OMG you will never know how many times I had to restart these projects.  Too many to count lol.  I will pursue this hobby though as I am determined to get it right and also it is relaxing although frustrating at the same time lol.

As you can see I made a bauble sleeve and a bracelet.  The bracelet was initially meant for an adult but I cut my losses and kept it small in case I made another mistake.  My granddaughter is now the proud owner (she is only six so very easy to please lol.

Much love

November challenge for Altered Eclectics

Hello everyone

Firstly apologies for my long long absence from creating anything.  I have had alot of personal stuff going on this year (still have!!!) and my mojo completely disappeared, in fact I hadn't even stepped into my craft room.  I forced myself in there for the November challenge over at Altered Eclectics and came up with these, an altered jug and bottle/vase. Typical of me though - I forgot to take pics of the before lol.

I painted these white, used napkins from my stash and then used sandpaper on the edges to give them the vintage look.  Finally I gave them a coat of varnish.

I do hope you like them - now for the pics and sorry for the overload.

Hello all

For this months challenge I have posted a fairy in a jar.  I used an old coffee jar, place dried moss at the bottom. used twigs from a tree from my garden, attached a photo of a fairy to the twigs.  For the back I used a napkin, framed it using lace and made a handmade flower for the top.

Hope you like it and that you will come and join us over at Altered Eclectics this month
