Double frame

My final project for this month for Creative Expressions today.

This time I used the frame of the smaller frame and the back for the larger frame, which are both included in the MDF frames kit. I painted the back with China pink chalk paint, then crackle glaze and Alice Blue chalk paint. For the smaller frame, I simple reversed the colours. I placed some of the Craft Consortium decoupage paper behind the smaller frame and made a rolled rose from the paper.

Earring Holder

For my fourth project this month I made an earring holder - practical and decorative!

This is a really quick and simple project and makes a really smart last minute gift. All I did was cover an MDF frame with Craft Consortium decoupage paper in Dark rose. Then I stuck aluminium mesh to cover the back of the frame and knotted a little ribbon as a hanger. Voila!

Hugs and Kisses

My third project for this month for Creative Expressions again uses an MDF base.

This time I painted the heart with Alice Blue chalk paint followed by Crackle Glaze and China Pink chalk paint. I ran a line of glue around the edge of the heart and then added Red Velvet Mica Flakes. I stamped a greeting onto a die cut and then added a Rose ribbon hanger

I covered the tag with Craft Consortium decoupage paper, stamped my sentiment onto a die cut and finally added a bow and a rolled rose made from crinkled edge rose ribbon

Thinking Of You

My final card of the month using Phil Martin goodies is this one.

The card is so simple, but the die cutting makes it into something special.
I used Spellbinders Bracket Borders dies on the edge of and A5 white card, then on Teal card and White once again. I stacked the two mats using foam on the edges and glue in the centre, to give dimension and a shadow at the edges. I cut the mat for my greeting from teal card using Majestic Labels Twenty. The greeting is from the Occasions Sentiments set. I embellished with a silky crush bow and  a Fancy Pearl Embellishment.

Just a Note

This month, the Creative Expressions DT are working with stamps and goodies designed by Phil Martin - if you haven't seen the range yet, it's certainly well worth a look as there's something there for everyone!

This is my card for this week

For the background, I simple sprayed Decadent Teal mister onto white card. When dry, I matted onto teal and white card and added Decadent Teal CS glue beads to the edge.

I used a Spellbinders Ornate Squares die cut from Teal card and stamped my sentiment onto a white circle. To finish I added a sheer ribbon bow and a square dazzler.
