Tim Holtz Umbrella Man

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

What are you all up too today?

I had a wonderful crafty day with Kath!

Not sure what I will be doing later but have a few errands to run this morning.

Today I am sharing with you a card using Tim Holtz products!

Step by Step

1. Cream DL card which I have punched the corners with X-Cut punch.
2. Matted and layered tan and Kraft card to base card.
3. To create the topper I first stencilled through a circle stencil with Distress Oxides Peacock Feathers I then spritzed water, dried and then added circles of Twisted Citron spritzed water dried and then added more circles with Fossilised Amber.  Once this was all dry I then distressed all over with Vintage Photo.
4. To finish off I then stamped the images with Versafine Vintage Sepia and embossed with clear embossing powder.

Stamps by Me - Flower Card Box

Good Morning Crafty Friends, 

How are you all today?

A busy morning here food shopping and a couple of errands.

Did you manage to see Toni from Stamps by Me is on Facebook live last night.
You are so going to love the new stamps and dies.

Here is one of my samples.

This was made using one piece of white pearlescent card and I have layered pink card.
Around the sides I have used the new detailed flourish die and watercoloured with my Faber Castell watercolour pencils. I stamped the sentiment from one of the new stamp sets.

This is the side view. I decorated the fold down sides and inside the box with the build a flower set 1 and 2. I have watercoloured using my pencils. To finish off I added a white butterfly.

Thank you for stopping by Today!
