Dress My Craft Transfer Sheets

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I would like to share with you my latest post for Dress My Craft. Dress My Craft have just released some fabulous new Transfer Me sheets which makes it so easy to transfer images onto all sorts of surfaces. For my post I have transferred images onto beautiful background papers from the Dream Door collection. I have then used crackling and distress inks to create a vintage look which I combined with very elegant dies from Amazing Paper Grace and handcrafted flowers made with Dress My Craft Dies.

Thinking of You with Marianne Designs and Heartfelt Creations

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have another elegant white on white card with some pretty handmade Wild Roses from Heartfelt Creations.

For this card I have layered white card on a 5″ x 7″ base and added the gorgeous Marianne Designs Die LR0236 with the centre die cut out. My Gemini die cutting machine embosses the Marianne Designs dies so beautifully. the flowers are made using the Wild Rose dies from Heartfelt Creations using Dress My Craft Soft Floral Oriental paper. I have used the leaves from the Create a Flower die set from Dress My Craft. The sentiment is from the Best Sentiments stamp set from Altenew.

I hope I have inspired you to create today.

Shrink Prink Flowers on Cards

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I want to share some cards made with Shrink Prink from Dress My Craft. This is an amazing product that is great for all your papercraft and mixed media projects. It is so versatile and I hope to show you what you can do with this product.

My first card features single layer flowers that I have combined with some paper leaves and leaf dies. I have coloured the flowers with Prismacolour pencils on the frosted side.

My second card features a combination of glass flowers and paper flowers. The glass flowers are made with three layers of petals and I have coloured with Copic markers on the shiny side.

My final card features some flower and leaf images from the Altenew Beautiful Heart and Beautiful Day sets. I have stamped with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink on the shiny side and then coloured with Copic Markers on the shiny side and then shrunk the images with a heat gun before layering them on the card front.

I hope you are inspired to have a play with the Shrink Prink from Dress My Craft.

Believing in Love

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I thought I would share a card made with Dress My Craft products.  I really enjoy making flowers with the Soft Floral Oriental paper and I have paired them with some gorgeous background dies and papers from Dress My Craft.

I like to make more flowers and leaves than I need so I have extra flowers to make a quick card.

I have a video on how I have made these flowers here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=He75MRZZZdk&t=28s

Please visit the Dress My Craft website here.  However, India is under Lockdown so it may be a while until everything gets back to a new normal.

Sending Love and Hugs

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back.  Today I am sharing a card for everyone out there that has been impacted by Covid19.  In New Zealand we have finally started coming out of lockdown to a very different world and it is still very scary out there despite very low numbers of new cases in NZ.  I have spent the time at home working on my colouring skills and different flowers using different techniques.

I have been looking for this LR026 decorative die from Marianne Designs for some time and was thrilled when I was able to get it from E-Bay.  I know that I am going to get a lot of use with it as it is the perfect backdrop for lovely flowers.  I was inspired by Uma Didwania with her Heartfelt Creations.Wild Roses created using Dress My Craft Soft Oriental Paper.

Materials Used:

Altenew Best Sentiments Stamp set
