I made this card for my daughter's birthday last week. She is planning to buy some Annie Sloan paint very soon to uplift some lovely old bedroom furniture.. I am loving the Shabby look too!
I used my new Anna Griffin embossing borders folders on the 'drawers' and on the top , I rubbed some copper gilding paste over the embossed areas. The beautiful perfume bottles are rubber stamped. Thanks for looking... see you soon. Hugs
I think I am having a mild addiction to honeycomb paper Lol... Here are my latest projects. I've made each heart shape using mount board. I only have a few colours of honeycombe paper but I still enjoyed finding papers etc to look nice with them. I made my own template for the hearts but used a die to cut the honeycombe hearts.. each one uses only half a heart so the paper goes a long way. I made my own template for the stands too although you can get some really fancy dies, maybe one day I will invest in one...
This is anaglypta wallpaper that I have inked up with Tim Holtz Squeezed Lemonade ink.. I used pressed Honesty seed heads with some small yellow daisies and the blue petals are Nigella. I put acetate over the heart before I stuck the honeycombe heart on. The little fairy I've had for years so it was really lovely to find her somewhere to live..Lol .... with the honeycomb heart open below
This is papermania card, I love the yellow roses. I inked the edges and added a few punched out buterflies.
..and here's the honeycomb heart opened up
.. More Papermania card is on this one I love the bright yellow with it..
..and opened up
No honeycomb paper on this one Lol... I had to do one with Anna Griffin roses.. the vase is part of a teapot card...I love the fresh spring colours.
This heart is covered with some gorgeous wallpaper.. the black is velvet flock! I added gems all around the outside and a few acetate butterflies with foil on the backs.
..and here it is opened
Thank you for visiting today.. I hope I've inspired some of you to play with some honeycomb paper..
I got the beautiful 18th century stamp set by Anna Griffin some months ago. I love the Rose stamps included in this huge kit. I can't stop playing with them LOL.. I wanted to do the technique that Ali Reeve shows on the TV.. where she inks the stamp in the colours she wants.. spritz it with water, stamps onto damp spritzed paper letting the ink run, creating the coloured base for the stamp.. then drying it off with a heat gun to then over-stamp in black or what ever colour you choose. I couldn't stop doing them with this lovely stamp he he... so now I have a big pile of ready to use roses!!
I fancied adding glitter but instead of adding actual glitter for a bit of sparkle,so becasue this stamp is a clear one I re-stamped and embossed with holographic embossing powder.!..I have to say - I love the results!!
Here's a quick card I made using one of them..
.... here, the light catches the embossing...
.... this is the embossing powder I used.. it adds a lovely glitter holographic sparkle.
Thank you for popping by today... I have been busy but will be back with more of these Roses soon..
I love this honeycombe paper. I've had it a while but never really thought of a way to use it... until my daughter came home with a card that inspired me. It had a red honeycombe paper star shape that had to be opened out.. using velcro dots to hold it open... it's fabulous!.. so naturally I had to have a go myself Lol..
I used a bigz bauble die for the shapes. They are great fun to do.
I used the beautiful Christmas cd from this set - I chose which part of each image looked good 'through the window' and cut to size adding some beautiful stampendous vintage glitter to each scene for some sparkle. I used a score board to add the embossed lines.
I really like how simple and clean they look.
For these cards I embossed the front of the card with a brick effect folder, cutting out the window part first. I cut two madison window dies for each card - one for the front and one for inside the card to look neat. The 'stained glass effects' are cut outs from a fabulous book I have had for years and years called:
