Spring Time

Good Morning everyone - it's Tammy sharing a card this morning, using Mintay and Friday 13th papers.
I've inked and coloured up this super Magnolia stamp from the Hugs & Kisses Collection - Tulip Love Tilda. She's been coloured with Distressed inks. This is a new medium for me, so been practicing lots.
We have a great selection of Magnolia stamps which can be found here

As I am now a HUGE fan of Mintay papers - they just had to be used. 
I have used a mixture of papers on this card. Friday 13th -
Awakening backing papers from 6 x 6 pad, decorative tags, sticker sheet and Butterflies from Birdsong.
My handmade foamiran flowers looks lovely with these papers - a small lotus flower in one corner just finishes it off lovely. I didn't really want to over fill this card.

You still have time to enter our final challenge - which is " Chipboard ".
So sad that we've had to say farewell to the challenges but we girls will be giving you lots of inspiration, so please do keep popping by.
Plus we have some new DT members  - oh my, you will be in awe of their work.
Well, that's it for me this morning. Happy crafting.

Gentle flowers for cards

Hello friends!

I have not played with organza foamiran for a long time and today I would like to show you how delicate flowers you can make from it.
They are simple and easy made but very attractive and suitable for wedding projects for example. 

I coloured organza foam with Tury acrylic paint to gain this pale palette of my flowers. 

The flowers were cut with Rosy Owl Cutting Die set which you can see below.

Have a wonderful week!

Vintage Door

Happy Saturday,

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Saturday. Today my creation is a vintage collage. Just love the door. I did a lot of fussy cutting to create my design. You can not tell by the photos but most of the pictures have been popped up with pop up tape. I added some frantage for interest.

Thank you for stopping by!

Spring wreath

Hello Crafteezee friends!

It is my turn today to show you something inspirational.

I love making cards for children. 
Today's card is for a darling little angel's birthday. I hope that it is cute enough.

New releases of Mintay paper sets 6x6 were used for my new card and some open paper roses in blue, blush pink and light mocha colours.

These fairy birds coloured in pink colour palette rounded out the spring outlook of the card.

Lots of cutouts of branches, leaves, flowers, gentle butterflies and some colourful birds formed this glamorous spring wreath.

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a wonderful week!

Photo frame

today I have prepared something special. My father-in-law turned 60 years old and I made him a frame for 2 photos. Generally, I do not use flowers for male projects, but papers of Mintay's "Life Stories" are so wonderful that I could not resist them.
I decorated a GoatBox and put the frame  inside.


The products used can be ordered in the Crafteezee Webshop:
