More Metallic Makes

Good morning crafty friends, how’s your week been? It’s been pretty busy here and I’ve had two docrafts demos over the weekend so no rest for me! I have some more magazine makes to share today that feature in the October issue of Papercraft Inspirations…

These makes feature the Capsule Elements Metallics range from docrafts, perfect for every occasion and recipient.

I used the XCut Star Aperture Cut & Emboss Folder for these makes and mixed them with star dies.

I used the XCut Filigree Heart Mini Die for these Makes to add a romantic touch.

You can find the Capsule Elements Metallics range at your local docrafts stockist.

Papercraft Inspirations issue 169 is available now.

Enjoy your week!

Welcome Willow!

Good morning crafty friends, how’s your week been? It’s been a busy one here this week and it’s not over yet, one more commission to finish, plus a docrafts demonstration, then I can relax.

So….being a massive Santoro fan I have been eagerly awaiting the new Santoro Willow range from docrafts. Finally I managed to get my mitts on one of the fabulous new stamps and created this…..


This card was made for the July Issue of Creativity magazine and I used the Santoro Willow Marie-Antoinette Colour Me In Rubber Stamp.


As you can see, the fine detail on this stamp is amazing, I used Artiste Dual Tip Watercolour Pens mixed with water and applied with a small brush to achieve this look.


The main image was cut out and mounted on an acetate card blank. I then stamped lots of flowers on a sheet from the Santoro Willow 12 x 12″ Paper Pack and tucked them around the image.


As a final flourish I added several stamped butterflies which were mounted on strips of acetate and added a touch of sparkle with a little iridescent glitter glue.

The Santoro Willow range should be hitting your local docrafts stockist now. The July Issue of  Creativity and lots of other fabulous goodies can be found at the docrafts shop.

Have a great weekend,
