Altered Picture Frame and Cards for Happy Daze

Hi, today would like to show you the before and after photographs of a small picture frame which has been altered.




Bought from a charity shop for 10p

Products used:  Stamps by Lost Coast Designs, Inka Gold, Copper and Kobalt Blau, Viva Croco Crackling Transparent, Embossing Folder,  Whisper Pens and Studio Multi-Matt Medium.


Continuing the theme for this month at Happy Daze - June Bug -  here are a couple of very easy cards which take minutes to make




Products used:  Stamp by Lost Coast Design, X Cut Heart Nesting Die, Embossing Folder, Sheet Music, Lace, Studio Multi-Matt Medium and a canvas sheet (used this to stamp the butterfly onto)

This time using the Cabinet diecut and two embossing folders, sparkly net and once again stamped on a canvas sheet.

Looking forward to seeing your entries for this months great theme at Happy Daze.

We are going away for a week which am hoping will do my husband some good. In the meantime take care of yourselves and will catch up with you all when we get back,  hugs Annette x
