Hello All. 

I am meant to be packing boxes in preparation for a house move but could not resist having a little play with the new Craftwork Cards kit. 

This Julie Loves kit arrived yesterday and it is the first in a new subscription service from my favourite crafting company.  This particular one’s theme is ‘Rainbows’. The contents of the box are put together to inspire you to be creative and so that’s what I have done ! 

This is one paper from the stunning pad onto which I have used another Julie Loves product – the Happy Stamp. 

Same paper on a 5 x 7 card with a simple white overlay and a Rennie Macintosh style flower. I’m glad I rediscovered my orange pearl drops to complete the look. 

Much to my delight , a new set of Reveal It cards are included in the box of goodies  There are backgrounds and toppers. So I used one of the toppers inked over it in yellows and oranges and then die cut the part I wanted within a circle.  I lifted it up with a slightly larger orange circle which again I die cut.  The glorious background paper was stamped on with the Meadow Stamp flowers and grasses in black ink and it was finished with a ‘Happy Everything ‘ topper. 

This time I used the Reveal It background mat. I inked it in swathes of yellow, blue and green ink.  I then used one sheet of the butterfly design and honed in on the shade I wanted, saving the other strips for later. The Rainbow butterfly was then treated to some gold and orange pearl drops to make it sparkle and shine.  

Now onto the shades of blue, green and purple.  I really like the flower paper but Ive eeked it out by using one small strip on this card. I then used the matching die cuts and layered them onto the corresponding flower on the background paper.  The photo doesn’t show it clearly enough but Sparkle Spectrum Noir pens add a sheen to the flowers which works beautifully. 

It always happens when I use the Reveal It’s. I have to keep inking them up. So with this mat of yellows and greens I used the actual ink pad directly onto the mat to make the colour stronger.  Then I buffed it up with kitchen roll.  The foreground was cut from the papers and finished off with a sheer ribbon and pearl drops.  

I could actually keep going all day with this wonderful kit but now I must return to the box packing.  Thankfully though Julie Hickey is launching this great kit on Create and Craft tomorrow morning at 10am which is bound to inspire me even more. 

Much love

      1. I was supposed to do lots of housework today but a new load of craft arrived so i got stuck in creating especially as i had been completely out of double sided tape so was super happy to play with foiling again. I think saturdays are days of crafting fun 🙂
