You're a star!

Morning, Rebecca here and it's time for another DT card. . 

I've used a MFT sun stencil in the background using blending foam to mix the ink colours and give the edges a faded look

I've also added a wink of stella, a die-cut gold mirri star and Doodlebug sequins to make the projects shine. To finish I stamped the MFT bold sentiment over the top of the Sun. 

Thanks for a stopping by,

Brett & Brenda Get Married

Happy Saturday everyone :o)

I've used an absolutely gorgeous Stamping Bella stamp for today's card.  I've just been waiting for an excuse to use this one, so when my son asked if I could make a card for his teacher, who got married during the Easter holidays, I was happy to oblige!

Aren't they just the most fabulous bride and groom you've ever seen?!

Singing in the rain

Morning, happy Easter Monday! Rebecca here with today's Craft Mojo DT card I have used the same stamp set as last week (Jane's Doodles- Raindrops) but I've used for a different style of card (last week's was a get well card).

To make the background I dipped a large, wet brush, into a blue and then green/aqua distress ink pad and the quickly swept it across watercolour card. Then I stamped the sentiment, masked it, and stamped the umbrella over the top (by masking the sentiment I managed to get the umbrella to look as though it was behind it).

Finally, I used the same aqua ink pad to stamp the musical notes to look like rain- I also added a touch of glitter to give a wet look to it. 

Thanks for stopping by,

First play with stencils & paste...

Hello everyone... hope you're having a lovely Easter weekend :o)

I've finally been brave and used my stencils and embossing paste for the first time... I've been itching to use them, I'm just a bit of a wuss with new techniques!

I changed the white embossing paste to pink, by mixing it with Hero Arts Soft Pink... it's really easy to do - just dab the ink pad on a craft mat, add the paste and mix together.  I need a bit of practise in getting a smooth finish, but really had fun with the paste so I'll definitely have another play soon... and the texture is great for adding a bit of interest.

The layout was created using the newly released MFT Blueprints 14 set, which I absolutely love and my favourite Jane's Doodles sentiment stamp too!

Thanks for popping in :o)

April showers

Morning, Rebecca here and I've used another Jane's Doodle stamp set for my DT card today. The set is called Raindrops- unfortunately it is out of stock just at the moment but you can sign up for an email alert to let you know when it arrives back in the shop!

Anyway, I've kept things nice and simple for this one, I've just stamped the elements and then fussy cut out the brolly and one of the clouds before sticking them down with foam pads. To give the umbrella a bit of shading I used two similar colours on ink on my stamp at the same time- I added a darker colour just round the edges. To finish the card I added a Wink of stella to make the water look shiny. 

Thanks for stopping by today,

Rainbow bright!

Hello everyone :o)

Lisa here with my card for this week... which is super bright, and distressed too, but still quite CAS I think...

All those gorgeous bright layers are Doodlebug cardstock, and I used the same card for the rainbow but coated it in Wink of Stella... and then added a few coordinating sequins for a fun little finishing touch.

Thanks for popping in, hope you all have a lovely day :o)
