Layered Stencil Fun

I had such a blast at New Zealand's Scrapbook and Craft Expo at the beginning of July, and one of the best part about it was meeting Sofie and Crece.  It was so lovely meeting these fabulous ladies and seeing all the array of Scrapmatts goodies.

My daughters got to meet them too and Sofie gave them some stencils and chipboards of their choice.  Guess which ones they chose?



Scrapmatts Chpboard: CB1226 Marine Life 01

They love the sea theme and they've created a fun stenciled card.  They will walk you through their easy step by step instructions.


1. Position the Circles Stencil on top of a white card.


2. Spritz a light colored mist on top and let dry.


3. Position the Marine Life Stencil on top.


4. Spritz a darker colored mist on top and let dry.


5. Reposition the same stencil and spritz again to add more dolphins on the card.  Then, spritz some blue mist on top for the illusion of water.


6. Embellish with the Marine Life Chipboards, flower and sequins to finish.


And here's the girls' finished card.


They even chose the colors from my stash...clever girls eh?


Thanks so much to Sofie for the stencils, chipboards, and hugs :).

Greetings!!!!


Good morning, I'm up on the blog today sharing you with a couple of card as well as a layout I made a few weeks ago.  Hope they get you inspired and crafting whilst we enjoy the lovely cooler weather.


With Father's Day just around the corner its a perfect time to make him a card, and I just love the wee words that Scrapmatts create. They work beautifully with those whom love making something from the heart.


Sure my Dad will love this card,and the doily die cut just softens it a touch.

The one below I created for a family occasion and would work perfect with a box of chocolates.


The layout below was created for another Challenge but I wanted to share any way.  I've used one of the Scrapmatts pieces and cut it up to blend in with all the dream catcher fussy cutting I have done.

  
Well I hope you've enjoyed my creations and I look forward to seeing what every one else does, don't forget we have an online gallery where we would love you to share with us.

Chalk it Up In July

Chalk it Up


Hello and Welcome to July

Today I'm on the blog to share with you my DT projects for the month.

First up I have a Chalkboard that I have decorated with Scrapmatts Chipboard.

This chalkboard can be found in Kmart for the grand total of $5.00. What a Bargain!!!

 This is the first side of the board.


Here I have attached the Scrapmatts butterfly and to decorate I have added some Kaisercraft Pearls and covered in glossy accents.

This is the other side of the board. 



On this side I have added another butterfly.
The chipboard vine behind the flowers are also from Scrapmatts.

 Close up of Butterfly

 Close up of the vine.

 If you would like to recreate this chalkboard, then these are the products from Scrapmatts used





For the next project I have made a 4x6 canvas art.


To add texture to the base, I have used the Cobblestone stencil and then used some snow paste.


I coloured the canvas with mini distress ink Mowed Lawn.


The vines are coloured with Brilliance Gold Ink.


These very cute words are from the Scrapmatts Scrap Words.


This little charm is also from Scrapmatts.

All flowers used in these projects are from 49 and Market.
To add the sparkle to the canvas, I have used the sparkle pen from Close to my Heart. 

Here is a list of the Scrapmatts products used
