Hare

Afternoon everyone, hope you are all well and having a good week.

Today I am showcasing my Hare border stamp #369, it is so lovely to revisit the older stamp sets.

I love the vibrancy of this piece and how the hare rests upon the triangles. 

The hare was coloured with Dina Wakley Paints. I applied the paints to a piece of white card with my brayer and then stamped the hare onto the background.

The triangles were also coloured with Dina Wakley Paints, cutting out the triangles using the triangular stencil and stamping some of the background stamp onto the triangles. The background stamp is part of the hare border stamp.

I also added a touch of background stamping using my The Great Outdoors stamp set #370. There is a fabulous background stamp on this set.

I also incorporated a Mini Marquee Letter and Index Clip from Tim Holtz.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. Tracy x x

Plant Your Dreams

Morning everyone, hope you are all well and enjoying some of the sunshine we have been having.

Today I have a card for you along with step by steps on a YouTube Video, video below.

I have also included close up photos of my card so that you can see all the layered detail.

This is a nice simple card to create and I love how all the layers are clearly visible.




The close up phtots really highlight all the layers and you can clearly see each layer and I love the tone on tone stamping too.

Below is the step by step video.

Tag Book

Morning everyone, hope you are all well.

Today I am showcasing a Tag Book, which is a workshop I will be teaching on 14th-16th May 2021, start time 10am. If you are unable to join live, you can watch at your convenience. The workshop is £20 and if you would like to join, please feel free to email me - tracy@craft-addicts.co.uk. 

I adore the colours on this book and all the layers and textures. I created all the backgrounds with paint.

Each of these pictures shows the detail on each page. The colours are so uplifting.






I will definitely be working with these colours again, they work so well.



These are all the stamps showcased in my accordion, all from my new March release.

Happy Dog

Morning everyone, hope you are all well.

Toaday I have a card using my newly released A7 Stamp, Happy Dog.

I love the colours on this piece. I stamped the background using my Snippet Alphabet #456 and Distress Oxide Inks. I used the stamp as a whole, stamping without the use of an acrylic block, to give me more of a mixed media feel and look.

I also incorporated some cheesecloth and cotton threads to give further texture to my pieces.

The heart has been stamped with my Heart Grunge Stamp, a new favourite #453. I love how there are so many elements on the stamp that can be used individually.

I added a touch of shading with an Inktense pencil and coloured my litle dog with Polychromo Pencils.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
