Christmas Frame - Hearts Come Home

I am so excited to share my latest creation with you all today. As soon as I saw the new Hearts Come Home bundle in the Holiday catty, this idea of a pretty lit village popped into my head. Fast forward a few weeks later and I saw a post by the amazing Kylie Henshaw on a Demo only facebook page and she had the exact same idea. I have since tracked down her website, Hello Stampers so you can see her gorgeous creation for yourself. It inspired me to get my butt into gear and create. Ok so this might get a bit photo heavy:

How cute is that!! It's like a little winters village on the day before Christmas waiting for all the excitement of Christmas Day. But this little scene really becomes magical when it gets dark out...

Eekkkk!! How gorgeous and wonderful is that and it was so simple to make. All I did was add some little fairy lights in between the little village layers and thread it thought to the battery pack which is attached to the back of the frame.

I didn't want to add to much decoration to the frame itself, as the scene is where the magic happens, but I couldn't help adding a few of the die cuts using the Snow Sentiment thinlits too, just to dress it up a little!!

So if you are still wondering what to add to your Holiday catty wishlist (remember you can order from Sept 1st) these bundles really should be at the top of the list. They really are amazing and I know I will get heaps of use from them all.

Happy Crafting,

TGIF #122 Watercolour Technique Challenge - Fabulous Flamingo

Thank goodness it's Friday and to be extra thankful we have a fabulous challenge with the TGIF design team and today we are watercolouring.
I love to watercolour and even though I wouldn't say I'm a natural I do think over the years I've gotten a little better. It really is practice that makes perfect in this case.

The main think that I have learnt is watercolouring needs more then one layer. And what I mean is that once you've added your first "coat" you need to allow it to dry a little before adding more colour. This way you get that sort of tide mark effect, with swirls of lighter and darker colour.

I decided to use the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set again for this card as I really do love how it looks, plus I hadn't actually made a pink flamingo creation yet... which is obviously their normal colour.

I really do love to add a die cut sentiments, the Congrats is cut from our beautiful copper foil and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll see a few more thinlit sentiments in the next few catalogues. I still miss the ones that were retired recently.

So what are you plans for this weekend?? I hope you find time for a little bit of crafting in your day and remember, you can head on over to my store, which is open 24hrs 7 days a week and have your goodies delivered to you anywhere in Australia.

Happy Crafting,

Embossing Paste - Happy Birthday Thinlit

I was just tidying up some of my computer files, when I came across a card that I had a made a little while ago and shared in Instagram but just realised I hadn't shared it here. So here it is:

It was a super quick card that I made after playing with the new Stampin' Up! embossing paste. This was my first go at using this awesome product and I was so impressed with how easier it was to make something, that my "scrap" piece of paper become my card front.

I had some spare Happy Birthday thinlits hanging around and so I decided to add that too and presto a card was born!!

If you guys haven't order this yet then you need to jump to it, it really does make your cards pop.

Happy Crafting,
