Organza foam rose

Hello lovely people!


I like to challenging myself, so much so for that when Tracy asked me represent the brand new foam and to make a flower with it, I did not waste any time.
Here is it my first and successful attempt making at making an Organza Rose!




The new material is very delicate, transparent, silky soft and feather light . You do not need to use any heat source to shape it. No blisters and bruised fingers any more.




I used a few colours to die the rose and its leaves and believe me, I had so much fun playing with this new foam. I hope you enjoy working with organza foam as much as I've enjoyed.




Thank you for coming around!
Happy crafty week!
Hugs!

Daisy Flower Tutorial

Hi Everyone!

As I promised you last time, today I'll explain to you how you can complete your Daisy flower.

You will need:
  • Foamiran 0.6 mm, white,
  • 201 Lemon Mungyo Soft Oil Pastel,
  • a half of piece of kitchen sponge,
  • a daisy flower centre,
  • a Daisy mould,
  • an iron,
  • a hot glue gun with glue sticks,
  • scissors.


Cut a rectangular piece of white foamiran big enough to cover the kitchen sponge, at about 7cm x 8 cm approx.




Cover the piece of kitchen sponge as shown.




Heat the rectangular piece.




Quickly press the kitchen sponge with the foamiran into the mould.




 You should have the imprint like this:






Repeat the process and cut 12 small and 12 medium petals. 






Colour the bottom part of the petals with yellow oil pastel.




Apply a drop of hot glue on to the edge of the petal and glue it on the reverse side of the daisy centre as shown.






Clue all 12 small petals into the centre consecutively.






Complete the flower by gluing the larger petals overlapping the first layer.








Roll the edges of the petals backward.




Now your flower is ready. You can make lots of similar daisies flowers. My collection is shown below. 



Here you can see a floral hair comb which I've made with some of the daisies.


I do hope you like and have enjoyed this tutorial.

Have an amazing crafty week!

Daisy Flower Centre Tutorial

Hi Everyone!

It is a tutorial time again so I've decided to show you how to make one of the most fragile flowers, a Daisy flower. Daisies symbolise the sun simply because they look like it. These gentle flowers could be a perfect decoration for your scrapbook projects or simply for stylish accessories.
Fortunately, our task won't be difficult because in the www.crafteezee.co.uk there are lots of supplies which will help you to make this beautiful flower.
This tutorial will be split into two parts and today I will show you how to make the centre of the flower. Next time you will see how you make the other part of the daisy flower.
Let's begin!

For the Dairy centre you will need:

  • Daisy Centres Mould,
  • Stamperia Soft Extra Light Clay,
  • 201 Lemon Mungyo Gallery Soft Oil Pastel,
  • 227 Yellow Green Mungyo Gallery Soft Oil Pastel (optional),
  • 208 Scarlet Mungyo Gallery Soft Oil Pastel (optional),
  • a piece of kitchen sponge,
  • a ruler.

From Stamperia Soft Extra Light Clay make 5 mini balls as it is shown in the photograph.





Place the balls of clay in the mould and gently press them to fill the whole area.






 Leave the clay for about half an hour to dry and gently ease the centres out of the mould as pictured alongside. Be careful. Don't squeeze them because they are still soft.  




Using scissors trim the excess bits and leave to dry for 24 hours.




Now it is time to colour the centries using oil pastels and a piece of kitchen sponge. 





 Gently cover all the surface with a yellow shade of oil pastel. If you would like you can apply some green and a hint of red on the edges of the centres. 





Now your centers are complete and are ready to be used for completing the Daisy flowers which I will show you next time.

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy crafting!

Medallion card

Hi Everyone!

It's summer outside, sunny and hot, this is my favorite part of the year. My card today captures some bright shades of the season. I find the combination of fuchsia, peach, dusty pink and white very charming.



To make this card I've used two pieces scrapbook paper 12" x 12" and some of my favorite brands cutting dies which Crafteezee provides. It is Scrapman.




I decorated my card with one big flower using the new lady E die set and lots of mini flowers coloured in fuchsia and peach colours. 




I like that wood looking background but I decided to adorn it with some rose cutouts around the central medallion where I placed sentiments.



 I hope you like it.
Thank you for stopping by.
Have a nice crafty week everyone!

Hugs!

Shabby card

Hello everyone!

My inspiration today is a gentle shabby chic card with a single flower made from silk foamiran. I love working with this delicate material. It' is easy to mould and shape and you can create beautiful silky-looking flowers which are stunning to look at.





For the card base, I've chosen two sheets of Pion design scrapbook paper. I applied a cutout and used this beautiful floral garland to decorate the background area underneath my foamiran flower.






The other elements which I've added to my card are the decorative openwork ScrapMan doily which I really love, a piece of enchanted lace Mystique, some trims of ribbon, pom-pom and wax cord to highlight the shabby effect of the card. I hope you like it. 





Thank you for visiting!
Happy crafting!
