Heartfelt

The beautiful patterned papers from the Kaszazz Heartfelt range make papercrafting so very easy, whether that’s scrapbooking or in this case, a very pretty card.
I have combined this gorgeous paper with the card sketch from the current Freshly Made Sketches Challenge, and come up with this,

Not the best photo, the papers are soooo much prettier in real life.  I have sponged the edges and done some faux stitching with a paper piercer and white gel pen.

Here is the sketch:

I wonder what else I can use this pretty paper for??  I do have lots of ideas, and I’ll share them with you soon.
Happy stamping!

Heirloom Page and Pockets

I had a wonderful time on Sunday, sharing some crafting time with some lovely ladies.  We all made the same layout, this page and pockets using the Heirloom range of gorgeous patterned papers.  The colours are sooooo lovely!

 

I can guarantee that everyone’s turned out differently.  I know mine did.  I decided not to make my second page into a set of 6 smaller projects to go into pockets, but added them onto a background paper the same colour as the first page.
Here they are separately:

 

This was a heap of fun, a lovely mixed media, messy heap of fun!  We used some Gesso to adhere tissue paper which we had previously stamped, onto the white cardstock, and then some watercolouring to create the lovely textured background.
I’ll share some similar cards we made over the next few days.

Happy Stamping!

Playing along in a Challenge

It’s been a very long time since I joined in with a cardmaking challenge, so what better way to get back into it, than to join in with The Male Room.  At one stage, I was member of the Design Team with this great group of ladies, so it’s lovely to join in again with them.
The current challenge is to use Dies on a project, and I have chosen a simple card, using the Kaszazz Hexagon Dies.


The fabulous patterned papers are a collection, again from Kaszazz, from the Industrial collection, the background looks like an old Aussie traditional tin roof!  The Hexagons are cut from another piece of patterned papers, and they have just been sponged with black ink.
Here is a close up of the hexagons:

Well, that’s me done for today, it is good to be feeling creative and have some mojo happening again, and I have more to share with you real soon.
Happy stamping!

I joined Kaszazz!!

Yes I did!  I haven’t been involved with Stampin’ Up! for some time now, having decided I needed a break from stamping.  The creative mojo is starting to flow again, and yes, I do feel like making some cards and scrapbooking, so I have joined the lovely Kaszazz family.
