Iris Stepper Card

Kew CD Sample for Create and Craft

Such a simple card to make thanks to the CD. The Iris looks really 3D when decoupaged. The colours my favourite.

Kew CD

Sample for Create and Craft

Had great fun making this card trying out my new gold spellbinders. Little tricky to get them lined up perfectly in the middle. Love the colours of pink and turquoise in the backing paper.

Happy Mothers Day

Card made with Kew CD


The background is stamped and embossed with a bright glittery gold powder. The pink roses are handmade using a diecut. The topper is from the beautiful CD.
It would make a super Mothers Day card.

New Kew CD

Card using the  Kew CD by Kraftyhands

The background of this card is stamped with a flourish stamp and embossed in gold. I had distressed the edge of the card with Walnut Stain and found that some of the gold embossing powder stuck to it, quite like the look. The pink and yellow background is a piece of paper made at a Sheena Douglass workshop and I thought suited the image.

I coudn't find a matching colour of ribbon the correct width for the slots so I used two. I could still see the slots I had cut so I teased the ribbon upwards to disguise them.
After I had put the hatpins through the matching bow I put small beads on the
points to make them safer.

March Blog Challenge

My card for the Kraftyhands March Blog Challenge

This month the challenge is to follow a sketch.
I decided to follow it as exactly as I could. Working with an A3 piece of card I cut it down to be 8x8. 
I used the Fleur Francais CD and chose design 3 of the pyramid selection but only used the first layer so I had a big bold flower in the purple shade. I then chose suitable backing papers from the sets using 3 again so I knew the colours would match. I used a rich purple card to mat and layer.
For the bow tails I decided to make two in embossed silver mirri and the third in the purple card. To lift is a little I embossed it using the swiss dots embossing folder.
The sentiment is aslo from the CD and I mounted that on silver mirri card and cut a very thin border.
The three little flower heads complete the design.
The simple sketch is a good idea to keep to one side if you ever run dry of ideas it will act as a starting plan to get you playing.
Hope you like the card and can join us playing with this months challenge using Kraftyhands products.
