Love Grows Here

Welcome, today I have a card for you using my latest release with AALLandCreate. This time around I am showcasing my Blossomed Dreams #123 A6 Stamp Set. All the products are available from our stockists, which you can find HERE.
I began by stamping my flower onto a piece of kraft card using White Acrylic Paint and then creating a flower mask and blending Distress Oxide Ink Candied Apple, Fired Brick and touches of Aged Mahogany around the flower. I spritzed the background lightly with water, allowed the water to sit for a few moments and then dried with my Heat Tool.
I then stamped my flower head once again onto kraft card using White Acrylic Paint and then coloured with pencils, adding layers of colour to the petals for definition. I also added some tone on tone stamping using my A4 Numbered Botanical Set, applying Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink to the background detail on the stamp and adding random stamping around the background. To add further to the texture I also included some Texture Paste, applied over Autour de Mwa's stencil.
I also included some chicken wire for added dimension and texture along with some hand stitching and Art Pebbles. I also added a mono print using Autour de Mwa's stencil once again, this time applying Black Soot Distress Ink directly to the stencil, spritzing the ink with water and then placing the stencil, ink side down and dabbing with a piece of kitchen towel. I then dried the ink with a Heat Tool. I love the process of adding layers to my designs.


These are the products I used to create my card.

Field Notes Etcetera Tag

Welcome, today I am showcasing my A4 Stamp Numbered Botanical from AALLandCreate. All the new products are available from our Stockists, a list of which you can find HERE, simply scroll down.
I opted to showcase my Fern image on an Etcetera tag, enabling me to add lots of layers to my design. I applied lots of texture with Texture Paste and added layers of colour with Distress Paints Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.
I also added some metallic touches using Pebeo Wax and added some touches of Evergreen Bough Distress Paint.
I added layers of stamping and added some dimension by cutting two layers of Fern to add to my design, stamping one in Acorn Archival Ink and one in Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide Ink.
The Art Stones add further dimension to my design and I love the texture from the teture paste which applied randomly with a palette knife and also applied over Autour de Mwa's stencil Lotza Dotz.
I also included some rusty wire and some cotton threads for added texture.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

These are the products used in my mixed media piece today and available now from our Stockists.

The Earth Laughs In Flowers

Welcome, today I am showcasing my Border Stamp ##119 Print By Numbers from AALLandCreate. All the new products are available from our Stockists HERE, simply scroll down.
I combined my stamp with Eileen Hull's Passport Book Die along with Seth Apter's Baked Texture Patina Oxide.
I adore the detail in this stamp and when stamped into the powders it looks fantastic. I highlighted the texture further with touches of wax.
I built up several layers of the Baked Texture Patina Oxide and then stamped into the melted powder whilst it was hot, applying VersaMark to my stamp to prevent the melted powder sticking to my stamp.
I added a further spotlight using a second piece of mountboard and again stamping the flower into the melted powder and then placing the second piece over my first image to give dimension.
Rusty wire adds a further element of texture along with some jump rings.
I added melted powder to the back of my book along with some gold trim to the binding.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
This is the stamp set I used in my piece today and available from our Stockists.

Animal Instinct

Today I have a card for you combining one of Olga's stamps in conjunction with my A4 Layered Grunge Stamp. You can find Olga's stamp HERE and my Layered Grunge Stamp HERE. All available from AALLandCreate.
 I love working on craft card, this time around using Dina Wakley Paints over a white painted backdrop and then blending two colours to give a seamless colour backdrop. I also added some Infusion Crystals to the background and then spritzed with water.
I added some stamping to the inside of the card this time around also incorporating some delicate splatters of paint.
Background stamping using my A4 Layered Grunge Stamp has been added randomly to the background along with some delicate splatters of white paint.
I added the focal imagery to a couple of die cut circles to give dimension and then incorporated a Jump Ring to echo the die cut circles.
Cotton threads also add further texture to the design.

Products used in my card today are listed below:

Love Grows Here

Welcome, today I have a card using my newly released Blossomed Dreams A6 Stamp Set #123 from AALLandCreate. You can purchase the new release from our stockists listed HERE.
I opted for something a little different this time around and used my stamps in conjuction with Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift-Ink and I am really pleased with the results. I began by applying a layer of Pitch Black Alcohol Ink to Yupo, applying with and Alcohol Tool and once the ink was dry, which does not take long, I then applied a good layer of the Alcohol Lift-Ink to my stamp, stamped onto the Alcohol Ink background, dabbed with a piece of kitchen towel and then polished to reveal the image in the background. Love this technique.
I also added some parchment to my design so that my flower appeared half on parchment and half as an Alcohold Ink Lift, the parchment adds another tactile layer to my design.
I also included a wooden jigsaw piece which I painted black and then added my sentiment stamped in white, this just adds a touch of dimension to my design and a fun element too. I also included a monoprint in the background using Autour de Mwa's stencil.
I also included some white cotton threads for further texture and added some delicate splatters of white paint.
This is proving to be one of my favourite flowers at the moment and I love how it looks using the Alcohol Lift-Ink.
For further interest I also included a Index Clip and my Dream sentiment again on parchment and on the Alchol Ink background.

These are the products I used in my make today.

Growth in Numbers

Welcome, today I have a post to share with you using my newly released Border Stamp, "Growth in Numbers" from AALLandCreate. You can find a list of our stockists HERE.
I opted to use the whole stamp this time around to show all the wonderful detail. I brayered the background with Dina Wakley Paints and then added a torn piece to the foreground.
I love the size of this flower, it makes a bold statement on a card. This time around I coloured the flower head with Dina Wakley Paints, adding delicate splatters of paint for a further layer of interest.
I added a circle of wire and added a dome to the centre of the flower for added dimension.
I have included a couple more domes and added further splatters of Ruby Paint.
The detail on this stamp is amazing and could be used as a whole or parts of the stamp used in your projects.
I love all the layers in this piece and in real life it is extremely tactile.
Below is a picture of the stamp used in my project.

Love Hearts

I opted for an accordion card today using one of my favourite combination of colours, well my favourite for this month.
I love the comgination of the Cheddar, Fuchsia and Turquoise from Dina Wakley's range of acrylic paints. On this panel I created three different backgrounds, using three different techniques.

  1. Apply Cheddar and Fuchsia Acrylic Paint directly to the stencil, spritz the paint with water and then place the stencil, paint side down onto the white card, remove stencil and then dry the paint.
  2. For the middle panel I applied Fuchsia and Cheddar paint directly to my white card panel, applying with a Brayer and I then placed the stencil onto the painted backdrop and wiped over the stencil with a babywipe to remove some of the paint.
  3. For the third panel I applied my paint layers to a Gelli Plate, placed my stencil down onto the plate, pressed a piece of scrap paper onto the plate, removed the paper and the stencil and then placed my white card panel onto the Gelli Plate to lift the print.
I love how each layer adds so much interest to each panel. I applied Turquoise and touches of Cheddar Acrylic Paint to a piece of scrap white card and then stamped my heart stamp onto the coloured background. Cut out each heart and then ink my border stamp with Archival Ink and stamp the lines onto each of the hearts to add a further layer of interest.
I applied Black Soot Distress Ink to Autour de Mwa's stencil, spritz with water and then placed the stencil ink side down onto my background, dabbing the stencil with a piece of kitchen towel. Remove the stencil and this gives you a monoprint.
Delicate splatters of white paint have also been included along with some number brads for further dimension.
In this picture you can see clearly all the layers added to each of the hearts.
I also incorporated more lines using my border stamp, again stamping with Archival Ink.

The products used in my accordion are listed below:

 You can find each of my stamp sets HERE and HERE and HERE, along with the stencil from HERE.
