Craftangles new release..Dangling leaves stencil.

Today, card no1 is a simple card made using Craftangles newly released 'dangling leaves" stencil.

I started from the top of the white card stock panel and stencilled the leaves using 'Bamboo leaves' and 'Pear tart' inks from memento.
At the base, I used Tim Holtz 'Woodgrain' stencil to simulate water in a pond.
I then added the die cut butterfly (from spellbinders) and a sentiment from 
The sentiment is heat embossed using Craftangles silver embossing powder.

A sweet and simple card..just the way I like it!

For card no 2, I've used the same colours as above with the Dangling leaves stencil.
Here I added a fussy cut motorbike and sentiment from Craftangles "Roadtrip" stamp set.

For card no 3, 
I have used the newly released Craftangles 'Ripples' stencil, with stamps 
I have used 'Cantaloupe', 'Desert Sand' and 'Rich cocoa' inks
 to create sand ripples on textured cardstock.
I stamped and die cut the bike with 'Rich cocoa' and layered it over a piece of vellum. 
I then added the sentiment using my Misti tool and also added some brown sequins to finish the card.

For the last card, I used Craftangles 'Ripples' stencil with TimHoltz distress inks
(Broken china, Faded jeans and Chipped Sapphire)
to create ripples in the sea.
I then used the stencil to draw with a pencil on a piece of vellum which I then cut to create a mask.

Then, I stamped the boat (from Paper smooches 'Wicked Nautical' stamp set) over the mask to make it appear as if it is being tossed by the waves.

I then coloured the boat and paper pieced a little bird from the same stamp set to add some cheer.
The sentiment is from the Craftangles 'Road trip' stamp set..which I heat embossed on vellum using Craftangles gold embossing powder.
As an after thought, I added some stars using Winnie and Walter's star stencil.

Absolutely love the cards I made today...mojo has been away..hoping its back!!

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

Craftangles May release stencils


I have a couple of cards for you today, made with the newly released stencils from Craftangles!!
They are so gorgeous..I cant get over them!! 
I have started with my favourite stencil..'mandala'.

To make this card, I used  Hero Arts Unicorn White ink to stencil over a deep green card stock. This ink takes a while to dry and I couldn't wait, so I dried it with my heat tool. This set the ink beautifully!
To finish the card, I stamped and diecut the sentiment using the Birthday stamp and die set, also from Craftangles.

For the second card, I used Tim Holtz 'Picked Raspberry', 'Worn Lipstick' and 'Victorian Velvet' distress inks to stencil the 'mandala' design onto smooth white card stock. I then cut this panel using Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die. I then layered this panel over some pink cardstock.
I used a second stencil on the card base as well as the stencilled panel to add some interest.
This stencil is the newly released 'Rays' stencil from Craftangles.
To finish the card, I used a die cut sentiment from the Craftangles birthday stamp and die set.

I hope you liked the cards and will be inspired to try out these stencils yourself!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

New stencils and Patterned paper from Craftangles

I have lots of cards to showcase today!
I made whole bunch of Mother's Day cards using the new Craftangles 'Hearts all around stencil'! 
I have paired the stencil with Newton's Nook "Wild About you"stamp set to make these adorable cards. I decided to use different colours for stencilling...instead of pink or red!

Here I have paired the stencilled panel with Bob and Betty patterned paper.

For this card, I decided to use two colours for the stencilling! I love the way the Angel Pink (memento inks) blends into the Summer Sky!

I stayed with the traditional pink here...

This card is my favourite!
The patterned paper is the newly released 'Timeless treasures' 6"x6" pack. I used memento 'Angel Pink' to softly stencil the hearts onto the patterned paper!
the birds are from mftstamps, the twig from Memory Box and the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

For these two cards I have used stamps from mftstamps and dies from Memory box, combined with patterned paper from the 'Timeless treasures' paper pack from Craftangles.

I had so much fun making these cards! 
Do pick up a pack of these papers and stencils and have a blast!

I am submitting these cards for  the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.

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

Craftangles new release!

I have a couple of fun cards for you today, which I made using the newly released 
I have also used the newly released 'Stitched Scallops' die.

For the first card, I created a circular mask and created the stencil pattern using memento inks.
I then stamped the cute cactus image on a piece of Bielo cardstock, coloured it and fussy cut it. I popped up this image with 3D foam tape and finished the card with a funny sentiment from the 'Birthday Stamp set'.

For the second card, I started by stamping the image on a piece of Bielo Cardstock and colouring it with Camlin watercolours. I then used the stencil and memento inks to fill up the rest of the panel.
I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of card and used the 'Stitched scallop' die to cut the panel at an angle to create interest.
I then finished the card by adhering the panels to a kraft card.

I hope you enjoyed these cards and will pick up and experiment with these supplies!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!

Hnmd New release...Super heroes

I am super thrilled to use HndMd's newly released ' Supergirls' 'Superboys' stamp and die sets, 'Birthday wishes' stamp set,  'Superkids' 6"x6" paper pack and the 'Filmstrip' die set!
I cannot say enough about the quality of the stamps and the dies!. The dies are super light and cut like butter through even 300 gsm cardstock (I used this for the film strip).
 The stamp quality is excellent and the impressions perfect!!
The papers are of fabulous quality, super luxurious and just the right thickness! 

For the first card , I stamped the superboy and super girl image as will as the super hero sentiment on some Bielo Cardstock. I then coloured the images using Steadler watercolour pencils and then blended the colours with a wet brush.

I used a patterned paper from the 'Superkids' paper pack as the background for my super heroes.
I finished the card with an anniversary sentiment from Hero Arts.

Patterned paper 3 ways

For my post today I have used the 'We are pregnant' paper pack from Craftangles to make 3 cards.
I have used the non theme papers from the pack to make these cards.
I have tried to use them in different ways..I very happy with the results..I hope you like them too.

For the first card, I used left over scraps from earlier cards to stamp the sentiment.
I added a die cut cupcake from Concord and 9th and some sequins to finish the card.
