Queen Bee Frame

Hello again.

One of the samples I created for Craftwork Cards FB LIVE was this Queen Bee frame.

I had already prepared an Elizabeth Crafts picture frame. I aged it with various brown inks, stencils and brown wax.

Then I began gathering together the embellishments including this #savethebeesstamp

Within the Craftwork Cards Queen Bee kit there are some luxurious pre-cut flowers. I embossed these ones with a hexagonal design.

I inked various mdf shapes with orange and yellow inks. Then I stamped a beehive across them.

I own quite a few Bee inspired products including this bee cutting die from Tattered Lace.

I backed the frame with one sheet of honeycomb paper, added a topper to the centre and dotted a few sequins

Until next time.

Hobby House Embroidery Wreath

Hello again.

Here is the embroidery wreath – up close and personal.

I started off by pulling a square of Toile tightly over the frame of an embroidery frame.

I turned the frame over and scattered some sequins onto the Toile. Then I encased them with a circle of card.

I turned the frame over and started attaching the Hobby House embellishments which included a hat pin with pearls and lace.

I wound twine around a small bobbin and added pearlised copper wax to a leaf or two. Everything was stuck to the frame with my trusty glue gun. The fabric roses included in the selection box are of such good quality that you can ink them and reshape the petals.

I completed the hoop by stamping a small sentiment onto kraft card. Then applying a smattering of pink floral pearls

Until next time

Hello again.

It is such an exciting crafting day! Not only are one of my favourite brands (CRAFTWORK CARDS ) re-launching under the Craft Stash umbrella; they have asked me to be a Brand Ambassador!

When you browse through my blog you will see many of my cards are made using Craftwork Cards products because I love the style of the artwork and the quality is excellent.

Sue Taylor will be re-launching the Craftwork Cards Brand on the Facebook page along with Craft Stash. She will be highlighting a new ULTIMATE COLLECTIONS USB which is available to pre-order from Craft Stash.

Here are some of my first samples as a Brand Ambassador that were made to show the variety of collections on this USB.

This hexagonal card was inspired by the Queen Bee Collection.

The next two little beauties were made using the Hedgerow Collection

Last but not least are two cards using the very stylish Deco papers.

As you can see the USB will have some of the classic collections from Craftwork Cards and there will be some new ones too. Over 50 different kits all at the click of a small USB.

Good luck to all at CWC and Craft Stash on the relaunch shows. I hope like me you will be watching.

Much love x Elisabeth x
