Tea Time

Hello crafty peeps, today I have a pretty pink tea time card for you! I don’t know about you, but tea time is anytime for me :). Black tea or herbal any will do. All my stamps today are from HH, and go together like bees and honey.

Hope you all like it and have a wonderful day!

Vintage Show

Another terrific Tuesday is here at OCS, and I’ve coloured up this cutie pie. Isn’t she just a doll! I used Vintage Violet from Saturated Canary, and dolled her up with Bo Bunny’s The Avenues dp, layered chipboard, jewels, and brads. I distressed my papers with tea dye ink and used my crop-a-dile to add an eyelet.

Enjoy and have a crafty day!

Hang Ten Dude!

Hello crafty friends! The other day my sister and I were talking about moving to Hawaii and becoming hula dancers after seeing Polynesian dancers at the Port Credit water festival. So this is my Polynesian inspired surfer dude. I ripped and layered dp to create the water, then popped up the layers. I also paper pieced the surf board and added wink of stella to the wave.

Ombre Paper Flower Tutorial

Hey there my fellow crafty peeps, I’ve got a neat tutorial to show you today. I’ll be making a paper flower out of watercolour paper and then I have a little video to show you how to do an ombre look on the petals.


So lets get started.

supplies These are some supplies I’ll be using, a glue gun would work great(but I don’t have one…I know, I know I can’t believe it either).

3x4paper4”x3” pieces of coldpress watercolour paper.


This is how I created the ombre look for the petals.

petalsYou’ll need to make large enough slits in the petals so the stem can fit through.

stemsI used flower stem tape, wire stems and some stems I had from a faux flower bouquet. Or if you have the ones on the far left, they are awesome too.


stemwrappedI hooked the wire through the trinket and twisted the end to secure it, then I twisted the wire around the stem.


threepetalsonstemTo get a realistic looking petal, bend and roll it around a bit and it will to give them their lovely shape. After the first three petals are in position, add glue to secure and continue adding more petals in a staggered pattern.

tapeonstemOnce your flower is complete, wrap the stem with some stem tape for a finished look.

flowerwithrainThe result…a beautiful paper flower!

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial, have a super awesome crafty day!
