Cherish the Memory: How To Create A Beautiful Nature Card

Hello all

I am back with another make for Cherish the Memory. I am using the lovely My  Botanical Garden Collection by Studiolight to create this mixed media card.

I covered a blank card with patterned paper and then  cut a section out of 

SCRAPMBG03. I added the square to the center of the card and then i added a stencil mask to the background. 

I made up one of the toppers using the decoupage sheets and glued a tag from the label sheet to the back before adding it to the card.

I finished the card off by painting green ink over the stenciled area and adding a bow made from paper twine

How To Create An Amazing Altered Steampunk Spool

Hi all

I have a little steampunk angel to share with you today not a DT project but just something i made up with my stash.

How To Create An Amazing Altered Steampunk Spool

I started off by painting the MDF angel with acrylic paint and then i used a background stamp to add the rose pattern. I added a stencil and dry brushed some gold paint over the top.

How To Create An Amazing Altered Steampunk Spool

I stamped out the heart bunting onto paper that i had printed off of a Gelli Plate, Cut them out and glue them to twine.

I pained a wood spool in white and wrapped tape measure print ribbon around it. I then tied a bow from the same ribbon and added a flower to the center before gluing the angel on top. I had to hold it why the glue set a little to stop it falling off.

Cherish the Memory How To Create A Beautiful Beach Card

Hello all

I have a mixed media card made using the Romantic Summer Collection available at Cherish the Memory

I used a 6 x 6 paper pad from Studio Light for the base layer and roughed up the edges with a pair of scissors. I then used one of the background sheets from the card making kit and glued it to the center of the card.

I then took the porthole topper and cut out the porthole part and then adhered it to some patterned paper and adhere it to the card. Next i took a large MDF anchor and painted it with sandstone acrylic paint.

I spritzed some cheese cloth with blue misting spray and let it dry before adding it to the corners of the card. I wrapped some around the anchor and adhered die-cuts,flowers and shells over the top.

I finished off the card by adding washi tape to the corners and adding a sentiment.
