ATC Theme Sewing

This is an atc that i made for a swap in a group that i am in called A Crafters Heaven, this is the link

We chose our own theme so i decided to make my ATC about Sewing.

I cut a piece of card to 2.5 x 3.5 then covered with coloured paper from the Peter Rabbit collection, i cut that to the same size and used a wet glue to attach to my piece of card. The four corner pieces were scraps that was left from a card kit i had from Hunkydorey and attached with wet glue again, using wet glue gives you a few moments to place exactly where you want it as it does not bond instantly.

The image is from the Peter Rabbit collection also. Popped the die cut pieces out, moulded them in the palm off my hand to give the pieces some shape, decoupaged the image using blobs of silicone glue this gave height and helps to give dimension to the image when i attached to the ATC, then added gem stones which i had in my crafty stash.

Would love to see your comments whether they are good, bad or constructive as they can all help to improve my work. Thank you in advance.

Happy Crafting

I intend on showing this on Make it Monday

Wedding Card

This is from the old version of Wndows To The Heart by Hunkydory, this is the link if you wish to visit.

It came pre scored so i only had to fold the pre scored card and burnish using a bone folder tool. I chose this image and added glitter that was in my stash. the accitate which has the sentiment on was added to the side panels, a wet glue was used to position the panels together this gave me movement to get the panels central. Attached the beautiful image to the middle of the card using double sided tape.

The flowers were bought from a well known cheap shop, i arranged them down the side of the inside back panel using pinflair glue gel as it is a good glue to hold the weight of the flowers, then added some pink ribbon to the bottom of the arrangement.

Would love to read your comments and don't mind constructive criticism either as its all a learning curve.

On Your Special Day

First of all would like to give my followers an apology as i have not been around for a long time.

This is a card i made for someone in a group i am in called, A Crafters Heaven, this is the link if you wish to visit.

I cut the heart shape and the sentiment using the Mini Cricut basic shapes which come pre loaded with the machine. I used mat mirri card 250gsm, and scored down the middle, folded in half and this gave me the shape.

For the embelishment's i used feathers, two little rosebuds with leaves from my stash and a flower made out organza ribbon, all were attached using pinflair glue gel, then added pastel pink gems also from my crafty stash. I cut out two butterflies from some paper that i had and used one on the front of card the other was for the inside to embelish the insert, used pinflair crafting glaze, this gave a nice glossy finish to them, moulded them into shape to give them some dimension and again attached using pinflair glue gel.

Would like to thank you for having a lookie and your comments good, bad or constructive would be most welcome.

I would like to show this on Make It Monday
