Crafty Creations October Masks.

This time of the year there are masks in the shops everywhere, gruesome, ghoulish creations but here at Crafty creations we used a more serene form of Mask and created these beautiful backgrounds for future cards.

The only thing missing in the image is the sparkle from the Heat and Stick powder with the Dazzling Diamonds.

We used a variety of masks from the Seasonal Decorative Masks and the Heart and Stars Masks to retired ones.

One technique we used, the Heat and Stick Method, can be found here.  Heat and stick – Technique Treats 9.

All these Shimmering Circles, Pink Paisleys, Hearts and Diamonds  below were created  using this technique.

Crafty Creations “Happy” October

Hello everyone.

Some times you have a few of your favorite colours left from a project and not sure how to use up the scraps. Well look no further! This technique ticks a lot of boxes:

Quick (although the crafty class didn’t think so)
Endless variations
Very little measuring
Cost effective.
Card stock,  DSP,  Washi Tape all can be used.

OK so it’s not by any means an original idea but we loved how they all turned out. crafty-happy-october

Unfortunately the shining and glitter papers don’t show to good effect here but they look great in real life.

The original I sourced from  Jennifer McGuire. Thank you Jennifer.

I did make other choices for the group, but they all chose Happy Christmas, that time of the year I guess.

While the list below may look like a lot of product we only used scraps, cut into random strips and laid randomly or in a sequence on some label paper. Then we used the Hello You Thinlit die to cut the words out, carefully saving the tiny pieces and then glued them back in place.
That was fun keeping track of them and sorting what went where and which way is up!!
The card was finished with a sentiment that was embossed in Copper Embossing powder (Love Love Love it!! ) from Versatile Christmas (retired).
The group went home with the words die cut to make another card with as a bonus.
Hint: You can colour the Dazzling Diamonds glimmer Paper with your inks!!
Cheers, Take care

Crafty Creations October 14th

Are you waiting patiently  for this post to see your creation?

I have been busy renovating  the kitchen so time has just slipped by. How do they do it on the TV?   3 days and they are done!  It takes  so much time, waiting for things to cure or dry, before the second and third coats can go on, not to mention the prep needed before the first stroke!!


So apologies to all.

Mostly these little cards were made from retired Stampin’ Up! products but the little frog is from the current Find your Inspiration 2016/2017 Catalogue and is one of the Hostess Stamps, Love you Lots,  that can be yours for hosting a workshop and selling $250 worth of products.

We also used the Seaside Embossing folder. Whilst there is always an option for cards like this for participants to bring their own stamps, only Trish chose her cute little Teddy Bear. Cheeky little fellow.



As the card says Cheers till next time.

Crafty Creations October 7th

We had a happy day Friday and  the Crafty ladies created some delightful double pocket cards, using the Irresistibly Floral DSP with swirls of colour here and there.  It’s fun to watch the pop of white as you sponge the ink off the Card Stock, then rub the residual die off the card with a tissue and it pops even more!! Great fun!!


These pocket cards are perfect for adding gift cards. Rose turned hers into a Christmas gift card and Julie chose a 21st birthday for guess who, Jessica.

For my card I chose Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Emerald Envy inks and coupled them with the Love and Affection flower from this stamp set. I  stamped the flower, then masked it before adding the leaves on to the inside edge of the card as well as the tag.

I like the addition of the Enamel shapes on the tag Einine made, may copy that.!!  One lady took some homework home, hope she brings it next week to show us the completed card.

The greeting and banner came from Banners for You stamp set.

Instructions abound on Pinterest but I found this one` for an A6 card.


Happy Stamping.
