Two 'TORN' for ya

Hello my crafting friends, so good to have you with me today. Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my last post, I may have spoilt you with four cards but you never know when I'm coming back lol!
Today I am showing you two cards that were made for the coming shows with Sheena on Monday at 8pm on Hochanda, there will be more shows on Tuesday at 9am, 12 noon, 4pm & 7pm showcasing her new 'TORN' stamps, a lot of people liked the last set Sheena did so I hope they like the new set two, my favourite is the clocks. Due tune in to view all the stunning creations by the rest of the design team.

TORN GUESS WHO  stamp set. I scored a piece of card then coloured it with Distress Inks then I cut out the center shape to match the stamp and cut it all into strips. I  placed them on top of Black card with Foam Tape to raise them up a little and to leave a slight gap in-between each one to make it look more like a fence, I then splattered some White acrylic paint over the top! I stamped the Eye onto white card, Painted it in with Distress Inks and poked the folded 'torn' edges through the hole so it looked like her hands were coming through the fence and she is peeping behind. I inked up a piece of card to match the fence and stamped the sentiment on it then matted it onto Black card and placed in the bottom right corner.

TORN TIME this is my take on Alice in Wonderland. The background I die cut two different sizes of Heart from Red felt and stuck them on the card randomly then I drew some crowns with Pebeo Mixtion Relief Glue, let it go clear then added some Gold foil, I inked round the edge with D.I. and matted it onto some Black card. On more Black card I stamped the clocks with Versamark and heat embossed the torn edges with Cosmic Shimmer Black Embossing Powder and the clocks with Papermania Gold Embossing Powder. I then painted the clock with Pebeo Iridescent Paints. Once dry I painted round the edge of the clocks and the hands with Pebeo Mixtion Relief Glue and once clear added some Gold foil.
On Black card I stamped the hare from Sheena's Have a Nice Day and heat embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer White Embossing Powder then painted it with Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Ink. I cut the Top Hat from Sheena's Day of the Dead Union of Souls spread some Pebeo Mixtion Relief Glue round the brim and when clear placed Blue Foil over  the top, I cut a little slit so the Hare's ear could fit through. I stamped one of the VERY TORN empty holes and cut out the torn edge and along with the clocks I placed these onto a piece of Black Card, I placed this onto my card with the hare behind the empty hole as seen and then stamped my sentiment with Versamark Ink and drew over that using the same Pebeo glue and added Gold Foil once it was clear. I die cut this out with Spellbinders Delightful Circles, rubbed Gold Gilding Wax round the edges and placed this onto my card as seen.

I hope you tune in and enjoy the shows.

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx

Birthday Wishes to You

Hello my crafting friends good to have you visit me again today, I know I have been very absent I just dont know where the time goes so to stop myself stressing trying to get cards on here 2 or 3 times a week (as I used to!) I am now resulting in getting a card on here whenever I can so I really apologize for the inconvenience and lack of commenting on others posts but unfortunately, for the moment, this is a decision I have had to make, I do not in any way wish to give up my blog, its one of the few things that keep me connected to all you wonderful crafters out there and even though I may not comment I still look in to see what you have created. There will be times when I have loads on here usually when Sheena has something new out lol! Summer hols are coming up so hopefully I will be able to make some more creations then. I thank you all for your friendship and understanding at this time.

Now todays card is one I made for a work colleague who recently turned 50, I really did not wish to make it but was asked by other colleagues, however the recipient is still to thank us for her gifts let alone the card so I definitely wont be doing one again for her!!! 

I matted the base card up with some Lilac card and then matted that up with some of Sara Davies (Crafters Companion) patterned Silver foiled card. I wrapped some Purple Butterfly ribbon around the center then sorted some die cuts out, the center rectangle is one of Tonics Classic Quatrefoil Patterned Panels, the two outer doily ones are Desire Create-a-Card Garden Party, I trimmed these down slightly to fit on the card and under the edge of the other panel. In the center I stamped my sentiment from Tonic Live Laugh Love Single Banner die and matted it onto Lilac card. I die cut tow Butterflies from the Crafters Companion Kimono Range and placed these on the card as seen, there you have the finished card.

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
