Cute as a button

Ceded to temptation and bought a bundle from Crafters Companion including a back edition of their monthly kit. Have raced through it trying to use up some of the supplies as I am trying to reduce the craft room stash.

Another 20 cards made and there is still a stack of paper and card to use up as well as a jar of buttons.

‘It’s the season – to be making cards

I have been recycling an old Lesley Anne Ivory perpetual diary into cat cards and decided to put the Christmas cats into one bundle.

These images just need matting onto card before adding to the A6 card front. I cut the ‘Merry Christmas’ and bow, using papercraft society November kit dies, from the mat card before sticking the image on to it.

Finished with some sequins or gem stones these now make a cat lover’s Christmas kit. Think I like the non traditional colours best.

More card casing

 

this time from Joanna Sheen cardmaking collection…

The shadows are achieved by masking and effects by pulling up the ink with water – useful practice.

I thought I would be using the die and stamp set from this mag but got sidetracked by an article on blending distress oxides with the stencils that came in the kit. Here are my two ‘casing’ efforts.
