Journalling With Butterflies

Happy July, Miriam with you again today.

I am sharing a journal page that I created using the fabulous butterfly stamps.


I started by painting and blending the background.


I added some paint splodges to the background more depth.


I also added some stencilling.

I used all 3 sets of the butterflies - MajesticWings & Things and Jewelled Butterflies.  I also used the fabulous Foliage set.



I stamped crackle onto tissue paper and adhered this to the background using matte medium.

To finish my page, I added a sentiment and scribbled around the edge to create a border.

So, there you go.  A summery page using some of the amazing stamps from Lisa Horton Crafts.

Thanks for joining me today.

Happy Crafting!

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!

Hi all,

Miriam with you again today.

I am sure you caught Lisa's launch of her Christmas collection - isn't it amazing!  My wish list is huge!

Here is the advent calendar that I decorated:


I love the kits from That Craft Place .  The designs are amazing and they are so easy to put together.  I don't think I have ever needed instructions.


The new stamp collections are so so useful.  You can use bits of them or loads of them - They are going to be brilliant for my Christmas cards this year.


I created a crackle effect over my advent calendar and even added one of the wonderful bottles to the back.  

This stamp, I know, will be used for years to come!  The possibilities are endless.

So, there you have it, the advent calendar I created for Lisa's show.  I even filled it with chocolates!

Thank you for joining me today.

Happy crafting!
Miriam

MANDALA CARD


    Welcome to my blogpost for Lisa Horton Crafts

This time I made a card with the lovely mandala Stencil. Enjoy this tutorial, and at the end of the tutorial I have a video link where you can see it in speed on You Tube how I made this card.



At first I made two of the same cards with the mandala stencil. I used the following distress ink's: Picked raspberry and worn lipstick. I used a blending tool to apply the ink.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
                                                  

So now I have two of almost the same cards.


In the next step I divide one of the cards in 2cm peices.


I take the strips alternately, and place them on the card on the same spot as the background stencil so it matches. And stick them on with foam tape or you coud also use 3d glue.



After that I splattered some dylusions ink over the card and I cut out a bold word from the new bold wordage stamps (aren't they wonderful).


This is what it looks like up close.


And I weaved through a peice of net curtains that I had as a leftover , and I made a little bow with it.

And voila here is the finished card.



I have also a video tutorial below here, so you can see how I made this card.


And below here I have the same card in a different colour.

Versatility of Mandala stamps and stencils



Hello, and welcome back to the Lisa Horton Craft blog, Claire Newcombe with you today.

Today I'm sharing with you my projects from each of my FB live events throughout the month of June so, plus the first look at a card scheduled for 23rd June.
Each of the projects in the photo above have been made with the June challenge theme in mind, and will be sent to the winner of June challenge which is 'SETS of THREE'

The theme can be interpreted in any way you choose, whether it be adding three elements on your project, or maybe making three ATC's, a set of three co-ordinating projects....your choice, have some fun with it.


There is another way in which all the projects made are linked, and that is that they all feature the fabulous Mandala collection of stamps and stencils....all of which are now available from Lisa's website

I wanted to create a selection of very different projects, demonstrating just how versatile the Mandala designs can be and how well they slot into Lisa's whole repertoire of products.

ALL FB LIVES FROM DESIGN MEMBERS CAN BE FOUND ON OUR NEW YOUTUBE CHANNEL, FOLLOW THE LINK TO SUBSCRIBE

I have attached the Youtube links for the projects that I have already created, if you would like to make them yourself.

1. Facebook Live 2nd June (YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeED11ESUOo)
I have created a set of three ATC's (artist trading cards) in a very feminine style. The mandala stencils feature in the background as a beautiful backdrop for the A5 Foliage stamps.
You will see on the middle card the mandala pattern has been clear embossed as a design feature. 


----------------------------

2. Facebook live 9th June (YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBKU7Y0AhGE&t=498s)
These cards show the beauty of the Mandala stamps themselves, and the fun you can have colouring them.
But also how they can be used to create subtle backgrounds, when stamped with clear embossing ink onto coloured card for a tone on tone effect.


------------------------------

3. Facebook live 16th June (YouTube https://youtu.be/2XeqCWhlb2Q)
The mandala stencils are layered here in the background with Lisa Hortons Woodgrain background stamp, and Mandala stamps highlighted with mica powder.
It is important to show that all products released into the Lisa Horton range will be able to mix and match with each other.




----------------------

4. Facebook live scheduled for 23rd June
This project uses the mandala stencils in a more familiar way, layered up to show their beauty. I have used the circle stencils with. distress ink to create a background. The  'grungy' details have been added using Lisa's A6 Texture stamps.
I hope you can join me next week when i demo this on a FB live 




Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope this has made you smile today.
Remember we have a lovely Facebook group where we'd love for you to share all your makes with Lisa products, I'll pop the link just here


Take care of yourselves x

Christmas Shadow Box

Hello everyone.
Dawn here with you today.
Did you all watch Lisa's fabulous shows on Friday?
I hope you managed to grab some time to watch and maybe place a cheeky order!

Today I want to show you my little Christmas Shadow Box I made for the show.

The shadow box is one I had from the fabulous Danny McIntosh ages ago now and it has sat in my craft stash ever since.

So, what better way to use it than to decorate it with Lisa's fabulous products.

To begin with I painted the whole of the box frame with Metallic Copper acrylic paint.  Then, using the crackle stamp I stamped all over the front of the frame in black ink.

It looked nice but I decided I wanted it to look a bit "aged" so I used some Stamperia Antique wax in Metallic Gold, Metallic Black and Metallic Turquoise and used an old cloth to wipe it over the front of the frame in different places.

For the inside of the frame I painted it with Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paint in Cheesecake and then using the Medieval stencil from Lisa Horton Crafts went over that with the same Metallic Copper Acrylic paint to give me a fancy background.

Now I wanted the flowers to be 3D in nature but I knew that 3d glue gel wouldn't give me enough height.  So I cut up some pieces of polystyrene and stacked them to give me the height.  

Then in order for the flowers to be at different heights I attached wires to the back and stuck them in the polystyrene so it couldn't be seen.

Then I used one of the new Christmas wordage sheets and used one of my copics to add a colour that matched my project.  

Finally, I found some little bells in my stash so I added some of those to a piece of thread and strung them across the opening, so it now jingles each time you move it. Very festive.


All of the Christmas products I have used on this project are available exclusively at Create and Craft for the next two weeks and thereafter will be available at That Craft Place.

Remember to join in with the monthly challenge the theme for which is "Sets of Three"

Please consider subscribing to our You Tube channel - Lisa Horton Crafts and remember to check out our Pinterest boards.

Lisa will be back on our screens on Tuesday 30th June with some more fabulous new goodies but I will remind you all again in good time.
So, enjoy the rest of your Sunday good people of blogland/craftland and I will see you all again soon

hugs
Dawn

Marvellous Mandala

Good morning all, hope you’re all keeping safe and well this June morning.
C:\Users\user\Pictures\2020 Samples\Lisa Horton\97376074_3178244122206845_5766861169683857408_n (2).jpg

I have created a card using the fantastic Create Beautiful Things stamp set for this blog post along with ultra-fine interference glitter and pastel pearls.
I stamped the half mandala onto the left and right edges of a 13cm x 13cm piece of white smooth stamping card and coloured with alcohol markers in shades of pink, turquoise and green but obviously you could use pencils or paints or your own choice of colours. This can then be attached to a piece of 14cm x 14cm so-ordinating background card and then onto the front of a 15cm x 15cm blank white card.
C:\Users\user\Pictures\2020 Samples\Lisa Horton\97376074_3178244122206845_5766861169683857408_n (3).jpg


Stamp the medium sized mandala onto a piece of smooth white stamping card, colour and carefully cut out. Apply glue with a glue pen to some areas of the mandala ( in the small sample above you will see I have added the glue to the pale pink areas) and sprinkle with glitter, tap off the excess and leave to dry before attaching centrally to the front of the card with 3d foam pads or silicone glue. Attach a large pearl to the centre.
Finally stamp the ‘just for you’ and ‘with love’ sentiments above and below the central mandala.
Happy crafting
