Thought for Thursday

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room

Well I am getting better at doing my 'Thought for Thursday' posts…..it is a while since I missed one! I am also being consistent with my exercise this year….at least 10,000 steps 6 days a week…and it is working for me :)

More Baby Bear

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

He is SO sweet, I couldn't just leave you with one baby bear…so here are some more!

The first one is my personal favourite - he is done in three layers (Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso), just like the bear in last Tuesday's video.

I wanted to make up a fun greeting, so I used the Labeller Alphabet to make an old-school type sign. The alpha set is great as it has multiples of most used letters enabling you to make up words and stamp them in one go.


Next we have some funky bears….you can see what I was going for here :) I used the Labeller Alphabet again and all the bears are stamped with just one colour, but stamped off 2 times, 1 time and no times - if that makes sense.


And finally….sweet little boy and girl bears - with some Playful Background stamps and the bow element stamped and cut out too. Have you enjoyed visiting with the baby bear….he will be back!

Braying with Decorative Masks

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

A couple of weeks ago I showed you a basic ombre technique using our new Sponge Brayers. Here I have combined them with the Hears & Stars Decorative Masks to make easy graduated backgrounds. The masks are on page 181 - or you can make a mask with any punch or die you choose.

Just lay the mask over the white card, secure with washi tape and roll over using your Sponge Brayer and choice of ink. Easy!

Playing with Painter's Palette

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Well today I am sharing three creations I made with the new Painters Pallet stamp set with greeting from Scenic Sayings. I used the stamping off technique in the first two to get the different shades of our new In Colours.



I've noticed that swoopy swirly circles (technical term LOL) are very popular and these paint swoosh stamps make them very easy to do. 

Here I incorporated some of the co-ordinating Designer Series Paper called Playful Palette (that is where those stripes and dots come from). 

Now give me a real paint brush - and the only thing I can make is a mess - but these stamps make me feel like an artist!

Thought for Thursday

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room

Well I had to save this one for today…I am counting down to the big 50 on Monday 13th!

I thought this was the perfect thought for Thursday…especially as it is a quote from Walt Disney author of my favourite quote of all time 'If you can dream it, you can do it!'

And there is chocolate and ice-cream - let the celebrations commence!

Sponge Brayer Creation

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

I am SO excited that the Sponge Brayers made their way from a kit into our main catalogue. Now it seems a small thing - but just look at the effects you can get!

I can't wait to start to start teaching all sorts of techniques you can achieve with this economical new tool.  In fact - if you can't wait either - come back on Tuesday for a video showing how do do this!
