Memory Maze DT part 2

"Stack'ums Overload"

Memory Maze is not all about the chipboard they have an amazing array of card sheets called Stack'ums, so I thought i would demonstrate how easy they are to use.

Take a sheet cut it up, add foam dots to the backs of the small pieces and layer onto the background image, add to a card and ink around the edge, all done but why stop there you can also add your fav embellishments to jazz them up. 










Here you can see some of the layers, this card has quite a few layers.



Where as this one and the next only have a couple of layers.





Add some lace or ribbons for decoration.

Memory Maze DT

Sticking with our March theme of circus and fairs 

" A little clowning around"


Miss DD 11 had to dress up for a circus performance at the end of last year, so these photos came i handy for this months theme.


Lots of MM flowers have been used in small clusters throughout the page.


An elephant from the circus set has been painted in gesso then a script stamp used to help is look like the background paper, along with a little ink on the edges.


Wow word was painted in gesso then viva paint rubbed on with  my finger gives it a beautiful shine



Small clown from the circus set was painted in gesso then inked in yellow and red.


Balloon was treated the same way as the elephant


Micro bike covered in gesso then inked and the 2013 treated the same as the wow work but was not totally covered in blue this time.

Memory Maze & a New baby

"New baby princess"


A cute little new baby girl card. I used a shimmery paper to make both the card and envelope.
MM Babies pram has been painted with gesso then light pink embossing powder added to the main part and glitter embossing powder added to the rest so it all glitters and shines.


I tinted some texture paste pink and used the MM hearts stencil.


I added some glitter embossing powder to the hearts to act like a little reflection.


MM flowers, I also added glitter embossing powder to the tips of the flowers.
