Sunday, December 10, Renes Cute and Simple Sundays!

To go directly to this Months Challenge please click here.


Rene Bowen

Today is Rene's first day featuring Rene's Cute and Simple Sundays. She will be featured every other Sunday. 
For this card Rene has used super fun background paper and I love how she did the Get Better Soon. Sweet Tilda with Bandaid is so adorable, seriously! Rene has colored the image with Pencils and Copic Markers. These stamps are from the Get Well Collection  2017. You can find the entire collection here. 

I just love Rene's card. Tilda makes me smile with her little ouchie. Thank you for sharing with us Rene!

Shawn is still working at getting the new product into the store and available for sale.  Quite a bit of new product has come in, but Shawn and his Mom have been very busy entering. So hopefully next week we can finally show you everything! I’m so excited and I hope you are too. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Friday, December 8th - Tilda in Heart Pockets and Text



Oh, isn't this card just adorable. Poor Tilda has hurt herself and has a bandage around her leg. Tilda in Heart Pockets is from the new Get Well Collection 2017, and can be found here. Rene has done a beautiful job colouring her image, I love those rosy cheeks. The Get Well Saying is perfect for this card, and can be found here.

Thank you so much for sharing with us today Rene!!

Shawn called to let me know that the Christmas Party Collection was mailed out this morning and should be in soon! You all know these are coming from Sweden, so it could take a bit of time, but at least they will be here before Christmas!  You can still pre-order this collection here.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a gorgeous day!

Wednesday Dec.6th - Foamiran Wednesday




We are in for a treat today! Ivy has created the cutest little card/decoration using Magnolia Stamps and Foamiran! She has also created a step by step tutorial for us! I can't believe how beautiful this is! I am truly blown away by the creativity on our Design Team. This is Ivy's first post featuring Foamiran. We will be featuring this every Wednesday.

Here is the tutorial for you,


Cut 2 of the larger template and 1 of the small template. You can use the Whimsy Stamps Poinsettia Die but at this moment in time I haven’t got them. If you have any poinsettia dies, you can do the same 



Use a craft iron or normal iron and mine is on Cotton setting, each iron may vary so it’s best to test it first. The petal will curl, then I do a concertina fold and roll it between my fingers



 Continue to do this to all the petals and they will look like this 


Then I gently unfold the petal only on the wider part and use a ball tool on a sponge and press until it looks like this 


 Do this to all the petals

 


Put a drop of hot glue to the centre - domed petals up - and off-set the next petals on top and the same to the smaller petals.


Use a 5mm ball tool or a wooden stick and press down on a sponge


Then I used a pokey tool to make a hole in the centre for the stamens 




I used about 10 double-head stamens and pushed them through 


I put hot glue on the back side of stamens to secure them and trimmed off the excess stalk. You can have your poinsettia as it is. I made mine shabby by adding some glitter paint but it’s optional, it’s my style 😊



Hope you like them.

Ivy, we love your poinsettias, thank you so much for the step out totorial! If you are interested in purchasing any of the items needed to make these gorgeous flowers, I will post links below.


Shawn has so many different colours of foamiran in stock now, and some beautiful new berries and micro bead stamens! Have a look.

Have a beautiful day and thank you for stopping by,
Kim

Wednesday November 21, Foamiran Wednesday




Candy Reid Mills

Wow,  isn't this a beauty? Candy sent directions on how she made her card, here they are.


I used  a Grand Nestabilities Die called Grand Labels Eleven and cut out two pieces of card stock. I put a crease in one about 1 inch from the top with my score pal and glued it to the front piece so I had a large card that would stand up. Then I used - a “falling snow” mask and put embossing paste on the
front.  

I used the Whimsy Die called “ Build a Poinsettia” and cut out a lot of all 3 sizes of the leaves and 3 of the middle calyx, out of Foamiran. I coloured them with chalk and shaped them with my fingers. I added Crystal Lacquer to the centres and dropped gold beads into it.  The sentiment comes from Tailored Expressions. I stamped it with Versamark Ink then gold embossed it. I cut it into the shape and put on 2 sequins.


Thank you so very much for sharing with us today Candy! Your card is just beautiful!

Now, onto Shawn's Store news!
