Fun with Craftangles foils

Hello!
I have some fun experiments with Craftangles foils for you today!

For the first card,  I used Craftangles 'Geometric bursts' stencil with icraft deco foil transfer gel. Once the gel was dry, I used Craftangles gold foil and a laminator to foil the card. I used a strip of Craftangles vellum to add a gold outline sticker sentiment to finish the card.

Hello!
I have a few cute mini notecards for you today, which I used making floral cutouts from Craftangles 'Elements packs', stencils and stamps for the current
Craftangles 'Anything goes' challenge.




For the first card, I started with a floral element and leaves from the 
Craftangles Colorful Flowers 4 element pack. I created a background panel using Craftangles 'Ornamental Lace' stencil. I added them all to a 3"x3"mini notecard  along with a birthday sentiment. If you look closely you will see the dew drop sequins adhered to the flower.


For the second card, I fussy cut a floral bouquet element from the 'Craftangles Colourful flowers 6' element pack. I die cut a banner and added a birthday sentiment. I adhered this to a dry embossed panel and then to a 3"x4" mini notecard. I also added some dew drop sequins.


For the third card, I stamped this beautiful flower from the Craftangles 'Everyday Sentiments' stamp set using a very light coloured ink, on watercolour paper. I then did the no line watercolour technique using the Craftangles liquid watercolours. Once dry, I fussy cut the flower and adhered it to the embossed background panel using 3D foam tape. I added a stamped birthday sentiment and adhered the panel to a 3"x4" mini notecard. I added some Craftangles clear sequins to finish the card.

I hope you enjoyed these cards as much as I enjoyed making them.

Thanks so much for stopping by..Have a great day!

Floral cards using Craftangles elements packs

 Hello!
I have some pretty cards for you today, which I made using Craftangles floral elements packs. These are so beautiful and make the most gorgeous cards with the minimum of effort!

My first card is a mini notecard. I started with an embossed backfround. I fussy cut a floral element from the Craftangles 'Colourful flowers 6' element pack and adhered it to the base using 3D foam tape. I  stamped a sentiment on a die cut panel and added that to the card to finish. I also added some Craftangles clear sequins.

For the second card, I used a panel from the Craftangles  'Vintage rosette 3' element pack and flowers from the 'Colourful flowers 5' element pack. I stamped a sentiment over the panel and adhered it to a card base made with Craftangles 'Earl Grey' cardstock.



For the third card, I fussy cut the floral element from Craftangles 'Watercolour florals 1' elements pack. I then layered it on a plaid stamped and grey cardstock panels. 
I adhered these panels to the bright green card base. 
I gold embossed the sentiment from Craftangles 'Life is pretty amazing' 
stamp set and adhered it with 3D foam tape. I used Craftangles clear sequins to finish the card.


I hope you enjoyed these card and will give the element packs a try.

Liquid watercolours and no line colouring!

Hello! 
Have you seen the fabulous new release from HNDMD yesterday!!
I'm here to showcase some of their fabulous new products.

To begin with, I have used the new liquid watercolour "Oh Fudge" to create a watercolour background.
I then stamped the new 'Dad' mini stamp. The dad image is from an older set from Craftangles "Dad my superhero" . I adhered the two panels and die cut them using a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a Craftangles brown card base.


For the second card, I started with a Craftangles Black card base. I stamped the books stamp in grey and die cut a background panel using stitched rectangle die. I then stamped the sentiment...the new Craftangles mini stamp Books. I stamped fussy cut and coloured the pile of books and adhered it to the card using 3D foam tape.


For the third card, I used an old heart button stamp to create a background which I then die cut using a stitched rectangle die. I stamped and fussy cut a few heart buttons and coloured them using Craftangles liquid watercolours. I threaded them onto black embroidery floss and adhered them to the background panel. I then stamped the new Craftangles mini stamp 'Mom' and die cut the panel to adhere it to the background.
I finished the card by adhering the background to a black card base from Craftangles.

Here are the beautiful liquid watercolours released this month...They are so vibrant and bright.
You can combine colours to make the most gorgeous combinations.


For the first card, I used a combination of Rosewood and Pretty Peony and Pumpkin Orange and Pretty Peony for the beautiful flowers (Craftangles 'Happily Ever After' stamp)
I tried the no line watercolour technique... I stamped the flowers on watercolour paper  using Tim Holtz distress ink and then coloured them in.
To get a darker green, I combined Poison Ivy and Rosewood
I then heat embossed the sentiment (Craftangles Hello Lovely) in white and adhered it with 3D tape to the centre of the floral panel.
I adhered the panel to a 5"x7" red card base and added a sentiment (Craftangles Everyday sentiments) and some Craftangles clear sequins to finish the card.



For the second card, I stamped the flowers from the brand new Hello Lovely stamp set and painted them using "Rosewood" liquid watercolour. I then fussy cut the same and adhered them to the a stencilled card base. The stencil used is the newly released 'Geometric bursts' stencil. I finished the card with some Craftangles clear sequins.


I hope you enjoyed these cards as much as I loved making them.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!

Watercolour challenge at Craftangles

Hello!!!

Welcome to the April Challenge at Craftangles! The theme this month is Watercolours!



I have used the newly released Craftangles liquid watercolours to make the cards below!!
These watercolours are so amazing...they are beautifully vibrant and just don't fade!!
For the cards below I have used them in three different ways and they look just beautiful!


For the first card, I stamped the floral image from the Craftangles 'Happily Ever After' stamp set on Craftangles white card stock. I then used Craftangles liquid watercolours (Autumn blaze and Red paprika) to colour the image. I then smooshed some Craftangles 'Lemon tart' liquid watercolour onto the background.
I then die cut the Cross in the middle of the floral image, added 4 layers of coloured die cuts to create dimension and inlaid the die cuts back into the negative space to create an eclipse card. I added a sentiment and some sequins and finished the card.


For the second card, I used a beautiful die from Stampin'up to die cut this filigree cross out of gold mirror cardstock. I die cut the wreath using a Lawn Fawn die and then smooshed some Craftangles 'Evergreen' liquid watercolour on the wreath. I love how it is partially coloured but still creates so much pop!
I created a background using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. 


For the third card, I used the Craftangles 'Poolside' and 'Evergreen' liquid watercolours to create a watercolour wash panel. I then die cut and dry embossed a white panel and adhered it to the watercolour panel using 3D foam tape. I then added some Craftangles clear sequins to finish the card.


I hope you have been inspired to give these liquid watercolours a try. Do join in and play the Craftangles watercolour challenge. You will find all the details HERE.

Playing the Craftangles March 'Flowers' challenge.

Hello!
I have used Craftangles Element packs and Craftangles Art sprays to create these cards. I hope you are inspired to  play along and try out these products.


For the first card, I started with a card base made with Craftangles "Hickory Brown" cardstock.
I used Craftangles 'Victorian Pink' art spray to create a background which I then die cut to fit the card base. I then fussy cut the floral element from the Craftangles 'Watercolour florals 1 elements pack' and adhered it to the card using 3D foam tape. I also added some Craftangles 'Cupcake pink' sequins to add some shine to the card.


For my second card, I started out with the same coloured card base, and adhered a panel of DCWV glitter white card stock to it. I then created a background using Craftangles 'Trendy Teal' art spray and die cut a panel to adhere to the glitter card stock. I then fussy cut the floral element from Craftangles element pack and adhered it with 3D foam tape to finish the card.


For the last card, I again created a background panel using Craftangles 'Bamboo brown' art spray and fussy cut and adhered a floral panel from Craftangles 'Vintage rosette 2' element pack. I added some Craftangles 'Clear sequins' to finish the card and add some shine.
