Add A Little Dazzle Design Team Last Hurrah! 

  
They say all good things come to an end. That’s not always true and it’s only half true in this case.

After much consideration Monica Weaver from Add a Little Dazzle has decided to close the Dazzling Diva Challenge. BUT the blog and boutique will continue being open offering unique creations and Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets. Do continue (or indeed start) following the Add a Little Dazzle blog. 

We had the challenge photos done ahead for a little while, so we’ve all still made a project along the lines of the inspiration photo.  

 

I’ve used Wondrous White 

 and by embossing it and removing some of the colour (I used Stazon cleaner), you get the two tone look. The leaves are stamped in Fresco paint from a PaperArtsy stamp set and the embossing folder is from Crafters Companion.

Do join in with our last challenge- it would be great to see you all out in force. 

 It’s been lovely being part of the Design Team; the girls are simply some of the nicest and most talented you’ll find anywhere in blogland. Lovely Monica and her husband deserve to make this new direction a real success. She’s combining her passion for crafting with clean eating and will produce some totally unique ideas on the blog.

I’ll still dabble and experiment with craft metal as it’s such a brilliant product. 

See you soon, and thankyou Monica and the Diva girls! xx

Dazzling Diva #67



Hi! It’s time for an Add A Little Dazzle challenge. Gorgeous gorgeous picture ..and I’m afraid I just didn’t do it justice.

I lost my pens- couldn’t find the pastel ones. Should have used my watercolours but instead…

I drew the tulips, outlined them in black and had gentle pretty colours in mind- but could I find the packet?  All I managed is this. I guess they look like tulips and therefore springlike…

But not a patch on the picture.

I’m hoping you guys can step up to plate and create something more lovely.

I’ve used Perfect Peacock metal 



And the die is from WPlus9.

Fancy joining in? Come on- you can have a much better stab at it! Join in here 

You win some…you lose some! 

See you soon,

Keren xx

PS- I’ve just found the pens! 😋

Dazzling Divas #66



Hi! Wednesday means challenge day. It’s a case of creating using the mood board. My eyes were drawn to the wellies and the watering can and here’s what I came up with

I’ve simply drawn a watering can shape, cut it out of Brushed Copper 



It’s easy to add dimension- I just used an embossing tool to push out and mark. I added 3D foam pads underneath to keep the dimension. 

I’ve used the WPlus9 set Fresh Cut Florals



A simple and restful card! 



Do join in here and win some of these gorgeous sheets. Just post a project using the mood board to create a card ( or something else!!)

Will see you tomorrow with an unusual card !

Add the characters onto the inside of the card. Stamp & die-cut the cogs! Die-cut a peacock bowtie. No self respecting robot is to be found without one of these!
Better go- have hungry mouths to feed and these school holidays are keeping me on my toes! x

Lawn Fawn & Add a Little Dazzle Blog Hop!

Hey! Today is part of an exciting week as we are doing a week-long blog hop with Lawn Fawn

lawn-fawn-blog-hop-300x300It’s Day 2 of the Add a Little Dazzle & Lawn Fawn Blog Hop! Both design team have joined forces to bring you some Lawn Fawn stamp & Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal sheet inspiration. This is going to be one amazing week!

20140804-092137-33697412.jpg You have seen me use Lawn Fawn a ton of times, and I’ve used a little set called ‘Get Well Soon’

I’ve used 2 colours of Add a Little Dazzle craft sheets- Brushed Bronze, and Perfect Peacock and created the bathroom cabinet using cardstock & the Brushed Bronze. I used the reverse of the metal to create the mirror- which looks bronze there but is in fact silver20140804-090339-32619300.jpg

The bird is stamped out twice so I could attach her onto the mirror. I masked out her face so I could make a ‘reflection’ in the mirror & stamped the bottle lids onto Perfect Peacock & trimmed out the lids and adhered them to the bottle. The ‘towels’ were simply rolled up pieces of fabric… that actually cover up a mistake- but have ended up making a design I like much better!!

Be sure to visit Add a Little Dazzle and Lawn Fawn for the rest of the hop list.

You’ve a whole week to hop, get inspired & WIN!
