Just a few more

My next DT pack has arrived so I have managed to get the first one done as it matched the colours of The Colour Room Palette #5.

As you can see I bought myself a Mothers Day present – a new Martha Stewart lace punch.

Idea 97: Stamp script onto a bird shape and give it a little pearl heart.

Here’s a couple of others I managed to squeeze in before my next DT pack arrived.

Idea 98: stamp a flourish like a branch then add flowers.

These are both Kaiser – Utopia and Devonshire papers.

Idea 99: Cut each segment of a flower out and make it 3D.

Birds, Bears and Bunnies

I seem to have discovered a whole new side to Kaiser Collections and am just loving what I can do with them as well as unwittingly scrapped photos with animals in them this week. I do LOVE this first layout though – I’m so pleased with it. It uses Tea @ Elsies papers & Peachy Keen.

Idea 91: Flick the background cardstock with waterpaint using a toothbrush.

Idea 92: Made another kind of rose by twisting a spiral for the centre.

Idea 93: Use the silhouette of the branches I cut out to do shadow stamping.

And here’s the bunny bit (LOL), well…Easter eggs anyway. This is the last one from my April DT kit for Annas.

Idea 94: Zig-zag stitch the smaller pieces of paper to the base paper.

Also made a Mothers Day card for Mum which also uses Kasier – the Devonshire range.

Oh, and here’s my step x step project using Prima Strawberry Kisses from Annas for this month now up on the blog.

Idea 95: Make a journal card with cardtsock as the base, lay a couple of flowers and a chipboard frame on it and spray with Glimmermist, remove the flowers and frame, then cut around the shape and trace with a black pen.

Idea 96: Cover the page with some paper leaving a 2″ border exposed then spray with Glimmermist – trace around it roughly.

Cards & layouts

I just love the Prima papers lately – they so suit my style and they so suited this photo. My DD6 really wanted a photo of a cuddle with her baby sister and I think this one is just beautiful, especially with the light coming in the window.

Idea 88: Machine stitch around the kraft cardstock to make a border then pull the stitching out.

Idea 89: Thread beads onto the branch wire.

My girls have also been learning how to make flowers from tissue paper so I used them on some cards for a change.

This one above  is made from Websters pages 6×6 paper pad.

And these next two are made from the Collections 6×6 paper pad.

Idea 90: Use up left over letters like Q, Z & Fs to make an interesting background, especially good on pages about talking or words.
