Tattered Lace Blog Challenge Inspiration Holiday/Vacation Theme


Tattered Lace Blog Challenge Inspiration Holiday/Vacation Theme

Well I can't believe that September has come around so quickly, here we are again and it's time for a new Tattered Lace blog challenge.  This months challenge is to create something with holidays/vacations in mind, anything goes as long as you have used a Tattered Lace die on the project.  Go check out the challenge there is a bundle of Tattered Lace Embossing folders this month.

My project was a scrapbook page, I love scrapbooking but don't get much time to do it.  I always pick up souvenirs when we go out walking, we spend most of our holidays in the Lake District, it's our favourite place.  Our holidays are of a much muddier kind than most peoples and we love nothing better than getting up in to the fells and mountains but sometimes the weather thwarts us, this was one of those times.

The photos on the layout are from our holiday last September, it was so windy and wet the mountain rescue teams were warning people to not climb the higher fells so we spent the week exploring the area around Eskdale, the photos where taken by the Stanley Ghyll waterfall.  The walk took us along the banks of the river Esk and although it poured with rain all day, we had a wonderful time.  Because of the rain, the river was in spate and the waterfall was spectacular, we walked deeper and deeper into the gorge towards the waterfall and it felt like we were going back in time, it felt like a lost world.  I wanted to capture the muddiness and the autumnal feel with this page and so used lots of distress ink.


I started with a 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock from Tim Holtz Kraft Core using the kraft coloured side for the page and peeled paint for the photo mats, I cut two frames using the TL Bloomsbury frame in pumpkin American crafts card stock and used these to frame the photos.  I distressed the page using some Mr Huey's colour mists in manilla, sunset, warm and dark calico and Tattered Angels creme de chocolat.

I stamped leaves randomly all over the page in vintage photo and gathered twigs.  The letters were cut using the Cricut and the Autumn word was distressed with more colour mists in sunset, Tattered Angels peach and candy apple, then I gave it a coating of distress crackle rock candy and when it had dried I inked it with walnut stain distress ink to darken the cracks. 

The Dragonflies were cut from TL dragonfly die in black card stock, I then inked them with Adirondack alcohol inks in gold and copper.  I tapped the dragonflies with a versamark pad and sprinkled over some blond moments savoury tropical green embossing powder, brushing off some areas so the copper and gold show through.

The oak leaves were picked up on the walk and I dried them out and gave them a coat of glue and seal, when they were dry I brushed over them with a clear wink of stellar pen.  I die cut some leaves from the Lavish Blooms leaves to finish the page off.

Happy Crafting

A big update today with samples from the Tattered Lace Germany launch, the dies included the lavish blooms collection, the pansy, poppy, iris, lily of the valley and single fushia dies and also the Tattered Lace alpha and numbers.  I loved making the lavish bloom samples but wasn't as happy with the other flower dies.  I knew what I wanted to do but they didn't turn out the way I had envisioned them.  The sentiments are mostly in German so I apologise if I messed anything up.

Number Rainbow

Really had fun with this one, there are two sizes of TL numbers in the rainbow, however I can't find the link for the larger of the mini die set.

The spots were made using sponge daubers and the erasures on the end of a set of pencils I haven't used yet.

I cut two of each colour for the large 6 and layered them up so you could see the rainbow colours from the side, I think it's fun and gives some dimension to the card.

Decadence Themed Tattered Lace August Challenge Inspiration

Hi all, I finally had the time to join in the Tattered Lace Blog Challenge, the theme this month is Decadence.  Here's my card, I hope it inspires you to pop along and join in the fun on the Tattered Lace Challege Blog

You can win a £25 voucher to spend on the crafting.co.uk website, so get you entries in :)

Supplies
Tattered Lace High Heel Glam
Tattered Lace Westminster Collection
Stampin' Up Cafe Collection designer paper (Retired)
Creative Stamping issue 15 Timeless Opulence free stamp set
Rhinestones in various sizes
Black pearl and diamante cabechon
40mm Black organza ribbon
Black glitter card
White pearl card
Silver mirri card
Black glitter
8 x 8 card blank
Stampendous Disco black glitter

Tattered lace Glamor Heels

My life needs a bit more glamour at the moment and this card certainly has that lol!  The gorgeous Tattered Lace High Heel Glam is a personal favourite of mine.  Cut from black glitter card and blinged up with tiny rhinestones they look stunning and I wish I had a pair of my own, not that I could walk in them, but a girl can wish lol!

I didn't have a whole lot of black glitter card and I wanted a thin glittery border behind the flocked paper so I used a thin redline tape around the outside of the card front and liberally sprinkle on black glitter, to get a good covering a rubbed the glitter onto the tape to make sure it was stuck down well.

The beautiful flocked paper is some I bought a couple of years ago from Stampin' Up as it was retiring, I've been hoarding it and this is the first time I've cut into it, it took some doing, believe me!

I've used the Tattered Lace Westminster Collection to add accents and as a matt for the shoes with some silver mirri to add some more bling, which really sets off the black perfectly.

The stamp is embossed with Stampenous Disco Black embossing powder, which is my all time favourite embossing powder, it's fabulous for night skies and Halloween projects as well as adding a bit of sparkle to a sentiment.

I really love how this card came out, perfect for a girly get together or a BFF birthday or even a hen night invite. 

If you fancy taking part in this months challenge, head on over to the Tattered Lace Challenge Blog and don't forget to check out the other DT members blogs for more inspiration :)

Lots of Tattered lace DT Samples

Well time has run away with me again and I've been neglecting the blog but it's been a crazy couple of months.  This is just a quicky post with some of the samples I've been making for Tattered Lace.  I'll add the die numbers later as it's 2am and I'm still not finished editing stuff lol!

This first lot is using the Scruffy bow, All Laced Up and Severn dies, as always, gorgeous dies and the lovely images are from My Craft Studio Shabby Sweet CD collection, possibly my favourite MCS cd ever!













These samples were made using the new Christmas embossing folders, I got to play with the holly folder collection which is just gorgeous and I definitely need all of them!  The 3 wise men dies are part of the festive collection 2014.



I will try to edit this post later and add supplie list etc.  Next up is my trip to the Summer Crafting show hopefully :)

Happy crafting
