Chrysanthemum skull, fuchsia and backgrounds.

Hi there, and thank you for stopping by. Today sees Stamp Addicts back on tv and these are some of my samples I’ve made for the show. You’ll also find these on Instagram @d_e_crafts so I hope you’ll follow my creativity and leave a message!

Chrysanthemum skull

The chrysanthemum skull rubber stamp is a deeply etched and as you’ll see it’s very detailed. I’ve used distress inks here to watercolour this image and have added a second layer which is raised as you’ll see below.

In the background you’ll also see the background which is “porcelain”, stamped in black onto grey water-coloured ink.

Another sample with the porcelain background is this one:

More of the skulls and also some of the sentiments from Stamp Addicts

The other stamp for this show is a fuchsia and this one also features another background “papyrus”. For this image I’ve cut several layers of the flower and decoupaged it up to give it some depth.

The last card below also uses the papyrus background as well as some keys which are also Stamp Addicts rubber stamps. Instead of stamping the papyrus as one whole background this time I’ve inked a section and used that section to fill the card from. This gives a more random pattern.

I hope you liked the stamps and the samples. Let me know if you have any questions and I’m happy to let you know what I’ve used and answer any questions.

Thanks for stopping by!

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 29th June 2021

The sponsor for this challenge is Sheepski Designs. Each week we invite you to join us at the Through the craft room door blog, the theme is always anything goes!

tulip vase

 

I coloured in the tulips with colouring pencils and added a little hint of distress ink around the edge of the topper that I cut along with the mat from torn edge squares. The mat I created from a brusho background on watercolour paper which I had created in the past on one of my making days. You crafters will know what I mean, we all have those days where we make far too many backgrounds and then did them out every so often when we rediscover them!

I hope to see your creations. Thank you for stopping by!

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 15th June 2021

The sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art Co. Each week we invite you to join us at the Through the craft room door blog, the theme is always anything goes!

I made this backing paper using one of the flowers from the Oddball Art whimsical flower collection which has so many flowers in it. When there are large collections it’s sometimes hard to choose, but there are so many ways to use the images. I decided that just replicating and rotating one digital image and using distress inks to make a backing paper would be a different idea and went with that.

I hope to see your creations. Thank you for stopping by!

To think that this was a few pieces of white 300gsm cardstock! It’s amazing what you can achieve with a few stamps and some distress inks. I used both stamp sets from the Indigoblu box sets that have been out and I’m so pleased with the results. The cutting file allows you to make a tall box like this or a smaller box (but could be adjusted to make something in between as well). I chose to make the larger one to challenge myself. I cut all of the pieces and stamped them flat before construction. 

I hope that this might inspire you as well to create any occasion boxes!

Thank you for looking at my blog post and I hope that you will leave a comment.

I’ve used this image a couple of times before, it’s so versatile and I love it! It’s called “quackers”. I’ve water-coloured these lovely birds with distress inks and sat them on some die cut branches. So cute!

big eyed mad hatter

This image was great fun to colour! I used my Chameleon pens and then found some distress inks which coordinated to make a background. The block stamp I’ve used in the background is one with a clock which I felt was appropriate and fitted with the mad hatter theme.

I hope you’ll join out challenge thank you for looking x

Dream Valley Challenge #229 – Christmas in July

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge. Our sponsor this time is Crafty Ribbons.

For this card I’ve used stamps from Stamp Addicts – the bird and one of their wavy sentiments. I stamped the bird onto some tan coloured card, then watercolored and added some red and brown distress inks to colour him like a robin since this is a Christmas challenge. The background paper is one from Dovecraft.
