LIQUID APPLIQUE ROAD TEST!




Hi Stampers,

This week I am road testing 'Liquid Applique' which Aunty Vera kindly sent me to road test.
I have made a set of cards and a box to put them in using the Liquid Applique to give me a snow effect on the trees. I have to say it is a great product! It looks so real! It is very easy to use, you just squeeze lightly where you want to place it, then heat using your heat gun. One tip though, do not be too heavy handed with it and it does expand quite a lot once you have heated it.

To give credit where credit is due, I cased the cards and box off Pinterest, the cards were originally made by Monica Gale of My Stampin’ Passion and there is a YouTube video on how to make the box using the Gift Bag Punch Board HERE! I just loved them so much and seeing how I had the stamp set I just could not resist making them. List of supplies at bottom of this post.







Here is a close up to give you a good idea what the Liquid Applique looks like.









 Happy Stamping!

CTC 104 - PETALS AND PAISLEY!





Hi Stampers,

This week on CASEing the catty we are focusing on Petals and Paisley on pages 46-49 of the Holiday Catalogue which is current until the 3 January 2017.


I chose the card at the bottom left hand side of this picture to CASE. I just love Paisleys it is one of my all time favourite patterns be it fabric, paper, stamps I just can't resist them! So when I first saw this stamp set I knew I had to have it. Having said that this is the first time I have had a chance to use it and I know I will be using it a lot more now.

With my CASE I have used different colours as I wanted to use the Copper Foil Paper and I feel Greens, Turquoise colours seem to look so much nicer with it. I also decided to make a larger card to show off the paisley pattern better, it is 5 x 7 inches. 






For my second project I decided to make it look Christmassy!





I went quite crazy with the 'copper' look! I have inked the paisley stamp with Versamark and then sprinkled on copper embossing powder, it really looks so effective. I then sponged the background with Emerald Envy, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. I cut out a Christmas Tree shape using the Copper Foil paper and then embossed it with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. I dyed some Seam Binding with Emerald Envy, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party re-inkers.

Now it is time to hop along to Julia's blog and see what amazing project she has in store for us. Or you can hop along back to Rebecca's blog and have another peek!
