Hello, Today I have just been messing about with the new AquaTints & Lavinia Stamps.

This is what I came up with. Lots of room for improvement.

The AquaTints are easy to use, with not a lot of skill needed you can get great backgrounds with them.

Just have fun and create.

I wanted to try some mixed media altered craft. These are my first 3 books that I have altered. I purchased some patterns from etsy and started folding.

Taking it one step further I wanted to decorate the book as well. I covered the books in paper from my stash.

I stamped the inside covers of the book with words and images. I re-stamped the butterfly’s on the same paper heat embossed them and cut them out. I shaped them and glued them over the butterfly image that I stamped on the cover.

I made some flowers in the same paper and distress the edges. I added ribbon and the flower to the book. I am working on some more at the moment and will post again when they are finished.

These will be available to buy, but only in our shop as I don’t think posting them would be a good idea.

How To Make A Christmas card Using A Small Cross Stitch Kit.

How To Make A Christmas card Using A Small Cross Stitch Kit.

For this card I have used an 8 x 8 card base. To make it into the easel card you need to fold one side of the card in half. For the base I have used red card to matt & layer, followed by white card that I have printed out with the fizzy moon character on it from my Serif craft artist program. I then matted & layered the “I love you” and used foam pads to raise it up. I stuck this to the base of my card.

How To Make A Christmas card Using A Small Cross Stitch Kit.

To make the top part of the card you need to cut a piece of card stock 8 x 8 then stick this to the outside half fold on the card. Your card will then stand up. I use the same matching fizzy moon card that I had printed off to do the next layer.
To frame my cross stitch I used one of my Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles (LG) S4-114 with the largest die from Spellbinders Nestabilities/Majestic Elements Marvelous Squares S4-383. This made a frame for my cross stitch. I stuck my cross stitch to the frame.

I then cut four corners from Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Corners Border & Tag Dies Californian Collection CED1102 in red card. I glue two of them to the back of my framed cross stitch. The other two corners I used foam pads on the back to raise them and placed them in opposite corners. I use foam pads on the cross stitch frame and placed this in the middle of the card.

I used a piece of white tulle under my flowers. I used the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Classic Rose Dies Finishing Touches Collection CED1407 to create the rose’s on my card. I used my acrylic glue on the rose and covered it with iced snow glitter jewels. I then glue them to my card. I added a bow made from the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson 3D Classic Itty Bitty Bows CED1408 in the corner of the card. I added some pearl hearts from my stash to the “I love you” in the corners.

For this card I have used an 8 x 8 card base. I have used red card to matt & layer, followed by white card. On the white card I have used my piercing ruler to make the holes.

For the next layer I have used the Creative Expressions A4 Embossing Folder By Sue Wilson Large Celtic Flower EF-016 on white card.

I then used the border die from the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Corners Border & Tag Dies Californian Collection CED1102 on white card and used cosmic shimmer acrylic glue to stick it to the card near the bottom.

I used a festive card stock from my stash and covered it with a double sided adhesive sheet. I die cut the let it snow in white card using the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Festive Collection Let It Snow CED3004. I then took the backing off the adhesive sheet and placed the let it snow die cut in the middle. I then used the Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels Iced Snow and covered the whole piece of card in it. I used my acrylic glue to stick on some Creative Expressions Self Adhesive white 5mm Pearls. I used Stix2 Double Sided Foam Pads 24 x 24 x 2mm S57139 to mount this onto the card to give it some depth.

I used a piece of white tulle under my flowers. I used white card to die cut the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Festive Collection Holly Sprays CED3013. I used the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Classic Rose Dies Finishing Touches Collection CED1407 to create the rose’s on my card. I used my acrylic glue on the rose and covered them with iced snow glitter jewels. I then glue them to my card.

I added a bow made from the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson 3D Classic Itty Bitty Bows CED1408 in the corner of the card.
