Undercover Plushies

I really wish I could have bought the entire August release from Clearly Besotted as I had a real difficult time picking which sets to get, but I am so pleased I picked these adorable little creatures.

There is a video on my YouTube Channel  Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card making Tutorial

The Avery Elle Wonky Square die was cut on white card and the undercover plushies were stamped using spectrum Noir finesse in Rustic brown. These were coloured with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers

The images were masked with post its and The Clearly besotted cloudy day stencil  was used with the tumbled glass distress oxide
A piece of white card was cute with a large stitched rectangle nesting die and blended with distress inks in a rainbow arrangement using the time for tea splish splash stencil

I smudged the bottom left corner as you can see in the picture above. I could properly have got away with it but I knew it was there and so was not happy with it. So I cut a heart using the stitched heart die from my LRDS slimline die set to cover it

Onto this purple heart I heat embossed the sentiment "I'll be there rain or shine". A smaller heart was then cut from the rain bowed background, to hide the rest of the smudge....
This was then all arranged onto a pink card base which measured 11 Inch by 7 1/2 Inch

Christmas Jar Shaker

I stamped these adorable little jars from Clearly Besotted and sort of got caught up in the flow of creative vibes and before I knew it I had a Christmas shaker card. It had started out intending to be 3 gift tags.....

There is a video on my YouTube Channel. Mrs H's Crafty Corner It is another video using the new format of voice over so please let me have your options, it is all constructive, do not feel you have to hold back.

Cardmaking Supplies
Clearly Besotted Festive Filler Stamps
Paper Discovery Build A Card Panel Dies
Foam Tape
Coloured Sequins
Green card
Red Card base A4
Torn Rectangle Nesting Dies
Distress ink in Chipped Sapphire, Mowed Lawn, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries

Cardmaking Tutorial 

Using the paper Discovery die set I cut the large rectangle in the green card, I then cut the panel down the middle. But the cut outs to one side as you need them later.

Cut a second large rectangle the same size as the first in cream card.
I then laid the green one on top.of the cream one and glued the green panels you saved from earlier onto the cream card, lining up with the gaps they were cut from. Every 5th hole I left blank. 

Acetate was then adhered to the green panel, covering the holes.

Using foam tape I covered the cream panel to form 3 pockets. Using the space from the 5th panel which you have not used.

Each pocket was filled with different colour sequins.

The front was then glued onto the base. The two remaining die cuts were glued onto the acetate on the front of the card so that you can not see the foam tape below.
See the picture below

Using a torn rectangle nesting die, 3 panels of white card were cut and 2 jars stamped on each piece.

These were masked and each one coloured by blending distress ink, one is Festive Berries, one Mowed Lawn and the final one is Spiced Marmalade 
The images were then coloured with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

The shaker panel.was glued onto the red card base which had been cut too, 6 1/2 Inch by 9 1/4 Inch.
The 3 coloured panel were adhered with foam squares. 
A tiny torn rectangle was stamped used Chipped Sapphire and reads BE MERRY

Nuvo drops in Silver Moonlight and Ruby Slippers gives the card its finishing touches, along with some some flake stickers

I make no secret of my Love affair with Daisy Mae Designs. This is one of the older collections that I managed to get my hands on second hand on eBay. I have paired it with dies from my August Papercraft Society box and used a technique to cut the image that I saw used in the new Creative Stamping Magazine Issue 86. I haven't actually got around to reading the magazine yet. I just saw the technique while I was waiting for the kettle to boil. So have only read that snippet.

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner. I have used a different editing app which means I can speed up my videos and add a voice over. I think it works better but please let me know your thoughts. It means the videoing is easier, as I can break off when I need to and don't have to start again if one of the kids barges in half way through. But it does mean the editing takes a little longer. So has its pros and cons!

Cardmaking Tutorial

To begin I stamped and coloured the image

The image was then cut using 2 of the torn oval dies which were positioned as you see in the picture below

The intricate wreath was cut from Kraft card, while the wreath background was cut from patterned polkadot paper from the works. A sprig of corn die was also used on the Kraft card

These are arranged as below onto the green card base. 
The hessian ribbon was taped onto the bottom of the card and a bow made from twine and tiny buttons were added. As well as a few clear drops
The sentiment is the one from the badger stamp set and was heat embossed in Wow Earthtone Mint
