Paper Rose - Shaker Card

Howdy all.
Here's a little card I made using some more wonderful 
Paper Rose products.

I coloured the background white cardstock with Colour Blast 
Colour Shimmer Dust - Lush by sprinkling the colour onto 
the cardstock and then spraying it with water. Once dry I 
die cut the piece using 16576 Stitched Rectangles die.
The white card was cut using the 16853 Spot Background die
I actually cut five of these. I glued four together and stuck 
it onto the green card. The little seedling sprinkly stuff 
was added to the holes and then a piece of acetate went 
over the top followed by another spot on the top. 
This is how I make the shaker card. 
On the top I added the 17472 Layered Thanks sentiment and 
cut some flowers using the 18168 Blossom dies.
And have this simple yet gorgeous card!

Happy New Year - Celebrate with Paper Rose

Happy New Year to you all.
Today I'm sharing my first Paper Rose blog post for 2020. 
Super excited to be staying on with them for another year. 

I thought I'd make a celebrate card to celebrate the New Year. Doesn't seem like there is much to celebrate in Australia 
at the moment. These fires that are destroying our gorgeous 
country are just horrendous. 

This card has been made using the new 18391 Hud Stencil. I have 
just used light moulding paste to create this background. Any 
type of paste, paint or spray would do the job.

I have cut out some circles using the smallest two dies from 
the 16548 Stitched Circles dies and the paper I have used is 

AND last but not least. The sentiment I used was the 

Thanks for stopping by. For those of you near the bushfires, 
please please stay safe.
Cheers Tanya xx

Scrap the Girls - January 2020

Happy New Year everyone.
Today I am sharing my very last design team layout for 
Scrap the Girls. I have had a wonderful time on this team 
and sadly I am saying good bye. Hopefully I find the time 
in my busy little lifestyle to scrap a challenge or two 
throughout the year.

This months challenge is all about Boho - texture,
pattern, weave etc. I made some paper circle flowers using 
scrap paper. Each circle was torn and sprayed with water and 
the edges were rolled slightly. I liked the circles on 
the inspiration picture and decided to make my own. 

Thanks for stopping by - have a fabulous 2020 xx

Leafy Love - Paper Rose Cards

Happy Christmas Eve.

Hope you are all organised and not too stressed for tomorrow. 
Such a wonderful day but so much craziness to get prepared 
for this one day. Wishing you all a fabulous Christmas and 
New Year with all your family and friends. 
Stay safe and be kind to yourself. 

Today I'm sharing a few more Paper Rose cards with you. 
This 18213 Leaves Stencil is so good to use on cards. I have created three different cards using the one stencil.

On this card I have used Tim Holtz Distress Oxides and a 
blending brush to blend 3 different blue tones onto some white 
card stock. Distress the edges of your paper, add a few 
flowers and some string to match the card and you have a 
lovely card for any occasion. Add a suitable sentiment or 
leave the card as is without a sentiment. 

Light modelling paste through the Leaves stencils and you 
have a completely different background. I have added a few 
foliage die cuts to my flowers on this card. The dies that 

I have cut out a couple of the leaves that were stencilled 
using light modelling paste. I coloured them with some 
Tim Holtz Distress Oxides and splattered some of the 
colour onto the background too. The tag is a newbie 
from Paper Rose. It is 18412 Stitched Tags. I can see 
myself using these dies a lot. Actually I used them to 
make all the tags on our Christmas presents this year. 
The stamp I used to stamp Best Wishes on the tag is from the 

Once again.....have a wonderful Christmas and New Year xx

Thanks cards - Paper Rose

Yay it's the weekend..
Happy Saturday.

Today I'm sharing some Thank You cards I made.
I have used one stencil and three different dies to create 
these three different cards. 
I have used the new Paper Rose 18427 Waves Stencil 
and 18412 Stitched Tags Dies as well as a favourite 
background die called 17931 Texture 3 and of course the 

All the stencilling through the stencil has been done using 
Paper Rose blending brushes and Tim Holtz Distress Oxides.
The blending brushes are super easy to use and are just perfect with these stencils.

ARTastic December DT Layout

The year is coming to a close and so is my time 
on the ARTastic design team. I have had a wonderful time 
creating layouts for all the wonderful challenges Jane 
has made. I have meet some lovely creative people 
and loved seeing the layouts that people have created 
for our challenges.  

Here is my final layout. The inspiration picture is 
all about Trimming the tree at Christmas time. The Criteria 
is to use stars and ribbon on your layout.

Whilst my photo and layout doesn't look very christmasy, 
it was taken just before Christmas because we always forget 
to take photos on Christmas day. And one thing I asked for 
Christmas was mohave family photos together. This one is of 
our daughter Leah and her boyfriend Tamas.

I hope you find some time during this silly season to create 
a layout for our challenge. Merry Christmas and stay safe xx
