Tape it, Lace It or Tie It with Team Lou

I dug deep into my stash this week!  I managed to find some lace printed paper thanks to Kaisercraft, and then added some ribbon and tied it for effect.

With a lot going on in our lives this month I am really pleased that I managed to do this...crafting is good for the soul!

Sorry for the short and sweet post this week - but please do join in the Southern Girls Challenge by linking in your works of art.  And finally a big thanks to our sponsors this week, Krafter Kart and The Paper Shelter.

Mother's day is almost here!

Mother's day is almost here so it's the perfect time to join the latest challenge over at Lets craft and create.  This months challenge #147 - Motherly Love.

I made two cards for this challenge using the same technique on both just a variance of colours.

 I have die cut the letters out of the main piece of paper and have then cut the letters out of plain cardstock a further 3 times.  I have glued the letters on top of each other to create the raised look.

I really like the effect that has given, and can see it being effective over a variety of different cards.

Happy crafting everyone!

I chose to go with the brown theme that was shining through in this photo, which I have carried through in the paper and embellishment colours.

I started with a layer of gesso and stamping and used this as a guide for the placement of my layers and ultimately my photo. To create this I have used: Kaisercraft - Documented papers Kaisercraft - Documented collectables Kaisercraft - Butterfly stamp Kaisercraft - Classroom Wooden flourish White gesso Archival Black ink Background stamp Bo-Bunny Stitched stamp Black cotton thread Black soluble pencil Foam tape Big thanks to our sponsors: Three Button Studio and…
