Bubbly thanks

Just over a month until Christmas. 
Holy heck where has the year gone?

It's always nice to send a thank you card. This year has 
been so crappy its nice to send a note of thanks and 
appreciation to those that love and support us the most.

If you follow along on here you will know that I'm a bit of a fan of stencils. I just love all the different ways you can use them. The stencil I used on this card was 19106 Bubbles Stencil.

So many products work well with stencils. A new product that I have recently just tried is Cosmic Shimmer Matt Chalk Polish. I only have two colours at the moment but will definitely get more. They are so easy to use. I just blended one colour through the stencil. Wiped the stencil clean and then blended the second colour over the top. I made sure I put the stencil down in a different position so that I got different coloured bubbles.

The stencilled background was cut out using the 
16575 Stitched Rectangles dies. I also die cut out the thanks 
stencilled background paper. 
The 17583 Banner 2 die has been raised using foam tape and 
the for your friendship sentiment is from the

WOW Embossing Powder & Paper Rose Studio Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the WOW! Embossing Powder New Release giveaway Hop!  

We are so excited to show case to you the New Release collection. 

Thank you for choosing to stop by! Please make sure you leave a 
comment on each hop for your chance to win one of our $25 Gift Cards 
from both WOW! Embossing Powder and Paper Rose Studio shops by 
Wednesday November 18th, this is open INTERNATIONALLY!

So.... here is the card I created for the blog hop using both 
WOW Embossing Powder and Paper Rose products.

First thing I did was to stencil onto the white cardstock using the 
18391 Hud Stencil and Mont Marte Light Moulding Paste. 
I then poured some of the WOW Opaque British Summer Embossing Powder WK15R(OM) onto parts of the stencilled area and then added WOW Metallic Platinum 
Regular Embossing Powder WC06R(O) onto the rest of the stencilled
area. Be careful when setting the embossing
powder, the light moulding paste can bubble slightly.

The next step for this card is to die cut out the sentiment. 
I used the 18297 Birthday Layered Word Die and the 
18261 Wishes Layered Word Die. The top piece was cut out of white 
cardstock and the bottom layer was cut from vellum. I embossed the 
top piece using WOW Opaque British Summer Embossing Powder WK15R(OM).

The circles were die cut from the 16548 Stitched Circles dies. Some
die cut in vellum, some die cut in white cardstock and then embossed 
using both the WOW embossing powders mentioned above.

You may notice a little bit of hand stitching on my card. Yes I find 
it very relaxing, crazy I know!! I have used DMC Cotton #642.

The embossed white cardstock has been distressed around the edges 
and foam mounted onto a piece of paper from the

Thanks so much x

Good morning all xx
Oh my goodness...have you seen the new embossing 
folders from Paper Rose?? 
on the background of this card.  

And you know I love a bit of hand stitching, I've stitched 

on the white cardstock that was cut out from the 

The gorgeous flowers are fussy cut from the 
beautiful papers in this collection. The colours are stunning. 

I've put the card together popping some of the flowers with 
foam tape to give it a little bit of a lift and dimension. 

out three times and glued together to give a little extra 
height and thickness.
The wonderful little 20165 So Extra White 1.0 Sentiments are 
perfect to finish off your card sentiment.

And lastly the white splatters have been added using white 
Dina Wakley Gloss Spray. 

Thanks for stopping by - happy creating xx

Autumn Leaves Art Journal Page


Happy Melbourne Cup Day everyone 

Today I'm sharing a project I have created for Paper Rose. I'm pretty new to all things art journalling. I had seen somewhere that you can alter your pages to make them see through. Thought I'd give it a go.

First thing I did was to trace around the 18213 leaves stencil. With a scalpel I careful cut around some of the leaves. I wanted to take the leaves across both pages of my journal so I decided to stencil with light moulding paste through the stencil.

To keep with he leaves/autumn look I die cut out a heap of leaves from old scrap cardstock. I used 18685 Lined Leaf Outlines die and 19190 Autumn Leaf Outlines Trio dies.

Using sand, cheddar and olive Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays I brushed them onto the pages mixed with a little water. I painted around the cut out leaves and splattered some of the paint onto the pages. The cut out leaves were then drawn around with a black marker pen. 

Finally a quote was die cut out of black cardstock using the gorgeous 19619 Outlined Alphabet dies.

Snuggly Christmas cards

 Hi friends x

Have you started making your Christmas cards yet?? I'm usually much more organised than I am this year...but hey this year has been fair from normal so I guess it doesn't matter than I'm unorganised.

Here are two cute Christmas cards made using the gorgeous 

This card I have used the 19601 Graph Paper Rectangle die which I have cut snippets out of. These gorgeous dogs are fussy cute from the paper collection. I have used a sentiment from the 19772 Crisp Christmas sentiment sheets. The few little sparkles of bling are from the 19499 Clear Crystal Mix.

The gorgeous little snowflakes used on this card are from the 16510 Snowflake 1 die. It's an older die from Paper Rose but it is so cute and perfect for Christmas cards.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful week xx

Lovely florals shaker card

Good morning

Here is another card that I'd like to share with you. 
Look at the gorgeous papers in the 19817 Black & Gold paper pack.
I have only used two different sheets of paper from the pack. 
One sheet I have used with the 18596 Circle Grid Coverplate die to make the shaker background. Some foam tape and 19499 Clear Crystal mix and the shaker is complete.
The other sheet of paper that I used was stamped onto using the 
18183 Lovely Florals stamp set. They are then fussy cut out and stuck to the front of the card with glue and some raised slightly with foam tape.
If you don't have any of the sentiment sheets I highly recommend you get some. They are so easy and quick to use and they finish off card so nicely. I have used the 19289 Big Black & white sentiment sheets. 
The thank you was cut out using the smallest of the

You make my heart smile


Today I'm sharing a layout rather than a card for Paper Rose.

The Snuggly Christmas paper collection is so damn cute, I just had to use it on a layout.

To create this layout I cut 25 4.5cm x 4.5cm squares out of all different papers from the 20072 Snuggly Christmas paper collection. You could also use the smallest square die from the 16578 stitched square dies as they are the perfect size.

The flower dies that I have used are 18168 Blossom Outline dies. I have cut the back or the flower out of vellum and the outline out of the paper pack papers.

The sentiment has been die cut from the 17451 Beautiful layered die. Again the background has been cut from vellum and the outline from the paper pack.

And finally to complete the layout I have added two little sentiments using the 19023 Black & White Sentiment Sheets.
