If you take a look at the Tando products you'll see lots of lovely items to use for your Valentines Projects....For this piece I've used the heart with wings which comes in the "Valentine Symbols" pack...watch out for my other projects using the rest of the elements. These packs are great value for money as you can use them for some many projects...
So, here I've used the winged heart:-
and this is the inside...
I got the idea from Craft Stamper and after making this one will definately be making some more.
I used the 'square gate' piece of chipboard from the same set as yesterday to create a blinged-up closure for my arch atc. I added mini gems after painting with some textured paint that I had mixed with acrylic paint.
The ribbon was threaded through and wrapped back on itself through the openings in the chipboard piece and one side permanently glued with the other left free to re- thread the ribbon for closure.
Hello, its Karen here & I have been playing with alcohol inks :D I have to say, (although its not really the thing is it? ) that I was very pleased with this elephant! So much that I begged Di for 3 of them as I had designed them so that they could go trunk to tail!
I covered them with gesso and glued on beads round the ears, tusks & toes. Then I spread glossy accents over the rest & dropped in some alcohol inks...magic! I kept the canvas fairly plain to show off the colours. The elephants come as part of a pack with a cutie hippo and a cheeky lion. Oh and there are 2 sizes to choose from too!
Thank you for taking a look today. Please leave a comment to say you have popped by and do call again! HUGS XXX
With both Valentines and Mothers day (UK) fast approaching card makers and scrapbookers are busy getting ready.
This lovely little word plaque makes a great embelishment for them. For thid card it has simply been coloured with whisper felt tip pens and then a little matallic rub on touched over the edges. This was topped with with clear ep.
These sweet little word embelishments come in packs of three.
I just love to craft Valentine projects:they have red - one of my favorite colors to wear and hearts- great shape to use and says so much!
So this Hearts and Kisses board was perfect for the Valentine craft and here what I did with it:.
The board was covered with MME patterened papers and the shapes were painted with Ranger Worn Lipstick crackled paint . Then I added some blings all over and a Love title with MME flocked velvet letters.
It's really fast and beginner level project- and a great present for someone you love.
Made this tag for a challenge the other day and thought it would be nice to share it with you all as well.
A lot of fun working with these chipboard instruments they take colour so well and topped with distress stickles. Being diamensional hanging them to swing works as you can just flip them over and colour both sides.
Instruments come in packs of three these are from two different sets
I was given an old clock to take apart by a friend a little while ago ... I thought the clock face would be a fabulous background for the Tando cogs. I don't do masculine projects very often so it made a nice change.
I used a gold permanent marker on the chipboard, layering it for light and dark shades....
then used the cogs as mini frames for these images from Crafty Individuals.
My little boy has been unwell recently and to cheer him up we have been doing some scrapping together.
This layout features a picture of him with one of the baby rabbits when he was at my friend's house playing with them
We have used Echo Parks Little Boy range and the Tando Creative clouds have been sprayed with white Mica Mist.
Just wanted to simple little card to suit someone musically minded folksy person. So a little masking and stamping and this smashing acustic guitar. Sprayed with a sparkly mica spray, strings etc drawn on with Sakura pens and just a little gold EP to dress it up just a little bit. The Guitar is one of a set of three string instruments (see stock picture below) each of which is just the right size to use as a card embellishment.
I finally used the letters from the heart hanger set to make my own plaque. If you remember I previously used the hearts for other projects. I had lots of fun with this ... layering and making flowers and cutting some yummy basicgrey paper.
The letters are covered with some metal that had been put through the script cuttlebug embossing folder.
With the thin metal then adhered to the chipboard I coloured the surface with peeloff marker pens and then sanded it back slightly to expose the silver metal beneath.
A few paper flowers and a twisted wire hanger and hey presto... another pretty to hang in my living space.
Di has been very busy designing some new shapes for the new season. One of them is this fab frame. The frame, like all in the range, come with gorgeous slotting legs, back plate and a front decorative panel.
Here is my piece:-
The frame and legs have been embossed, painted, sprayed, stamped, glued, splodged, you know the sort of thing!! if you'd like more details visit my blog.
Can't wait to see what ideas you all come up with.
Hello, its Karen here! I have been crafting with the exquisite little wrought iron gate! It certainly doesn't need much doing to it because its prettiness is enough. I have made a birthday card for my Mum in her favourite colours.
I have kept the card fairly simple which she prefers :D The rose & leaves are stamped & cut out and the gorgeous gate is just painted with purple Brilliance! Here is the gate in all its glory (it comes in 2 sizes, I have used the small one) ...
Thank you for taking a look today. Do pop back every day for something new & exciting from the fabulous design team :D Take care, HUGS XXX
there was a sweet girl who really wanted to go to the ball. She didn't have the usual crown and pretty dress so didn't think she had a chance of making her dream come true.....
that was until she found the Tando pumpkin carriage and realised that even if she didn't have a ball to go to she could still be princess for a day :D
Who knows while she is enjoying her ride in her carriage... she may just find her own Prince Charming who will help her to realize her dream eh.
The carriage is a fab size for a box frame I found .... I painted it with white acrylic paint as a base and it just had to have the glitter treatment although it doesn't show up too well in my photos. I used thick flaky glittery stuff that I got from the £1 shop.... I love the texture of it and it just shows crafting doesn't have to cost a fortune.
