Gorgeous New Bella ~ Easel Box....

Hi All
Today I'm sharing some fabulous new Tattered Lace goodies... including dies, an embossing folder set and loads of awesome embellishments! :)
I have made a drawer based easel card from some plain white card stock. Cut some panels for the sides and top from designer paper, then embossed them with the lovely new 'Script' embossing folder. These have then been edged with distress ink. I attached a length of the gorgeous new ribbon across the top of the drawer base before adhering the easel card.
I put together a 'stop' panel (the bit that stops the easel part of the card from falling down flat) and made a double looped bow and stuck it on. To which I added a couple of flat backed pearls and one of the beautiful new resin flowers... I also added one to the front of the drawer.
The new Bella's Body was cut from vanilla card stock, and also edged with distress ink. Bella has some wonderful new clothes and accessories available, of which I used Bella's Short Dress and one of Bella's Hair dies. I've cut one each of the short dresses and layered them....then cut a further 8 of the lacy short dress and made them into a double tiered long skirt back for her. I cut her a matching pair of shoes and gave her a lovely long hairstyle.

With a couple of Rose Corners, cut and distress inked for the easel top, and a parasol for Bella, all she needed were the words...Bella......Gorgeous New Chic Lady in contrasting brown cardstock to finish it all off. The easel card can be folded down and tied with the ribbon x

I 'Love' This Die!!!

Hi Everyone  :)
 I'm back with another project that's on the Tattered Lace Blog, using the fabulous Monumental Moments - Love die. 
Whilst this die enables you to make some stunning cards - equally it lends itself to the class of home decor.
Today I am sharing with you a stand up piece that is sturdy & simple to make x
You will need to cut 8 'Love' words in a sturdy card-stock...I've used 300gsm. Glue and layer each die cut...remembering to trim the tab top of the 'O' into an oval on each layer as you go.

Coat the entire piece with Gesso, including all the edges, and leave to dry.

Whilst that is drying cover a plain mdf plaque with some designer paper, then run Walnut Stain Distress Ink around the edges.

Take the Love wording and spritz it with some watered down acrylic paint.

I have then used a crackle stamp & some gilding flake to decorate both the wording and the base, and run Distress ink in both Walnut Stain and Worn Lipstick around the edge.

Stamp a verse/sentiment of your choice onto the base and then, with a hot glue gun, adhere the wording to the mdf base, holding it steady while the glue sets.

Cut 2 butterflies in matching papers, ink and gild random areas and adhere to the 'O' ...cut a few sets of the Floral Flourish & Lacy Rose dies...ink and adhere those also.
That's it...you're done!! :)

A Touch of Red - IndigoBlu Challenge

Morning All ...

Well, I'm not sure where the last month went, but we breezed into February with our first coating of snow yesterday!! I hope it doesn't get used to visiting!!! ;) 

Anyway...onwards to this month's IndigoBlu Challenge reminder... a 'Touch of Red' ... 
Just perfect for Valentine's!

I've created a really simple, but effective Triple Heart wall hanging...and here's what I did...

I took a trio of MDF hearts and coated them all in our IndigoBlu Gesso... the middle sized one I also covered in Ruby Slippers Acrylic Paint.
I then edged them all with the contrast colour, and made sure they were thoroughly dry.
Using the gorgeous NEW Heart Flourish stamp from IndigoBlu - I flitterglued and Mega Flaked the images with Royal Peacock Mega Flake - onto the two largest hearts. Onto the smallest heart, I used the NEW Heart Tattoo image.  I then strung them together using some fairly sturdy craft wire...that's it!!   

There are great prizes up for grabs, so come and join us!!! :)

Here are the products that I've used...
