My Lovely Supporters

2 Sept 2014


This is where it all started for me in the craft world, Decoupage, I used to buy sheet after sheet from a local craft shop and that is all I used to do, then I found my love of both rubber and digi stamps.
I saw that My Besties has a challenge blog all about 3'd decoupage so I thought, why not, so I bought a sheet from HERE, this one is called Milly Mae
One night last week I sat watching TV and cut all the pieces out, gosh it brought back some memories, die cut decoupage was not the 'in' thing when I first started crafting, everything had to be cut by hand good job I still got my little decoupage scissors.  To tell the truth it was very enjoyable.
I followed this sketch at My Besties 3D Deco Blog
The papers I used are LOTV all have been mounted onto black card stock including the image mount, I used Kraft card to adhere the image with silicone glue, I added the decoupage flowers and border that come with the sheet, I then added a bow and die cut hearts.
This nest picture shows the layers 
and this final picture shows Milly Mae close up. 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thanks to all my visitors and a special thanks to those who leave me comments they always mean so much to me.
Have a lovely day

I used to be a real decoupage fiend myself, Lorraine! I still have quite a few books and boxes full of the stuff! Once you discover stamps it does get pushed to the back a bit which is a shame as I always love the effect! And this is a case in point! Stunning! Love those gorgeous papers and layout! I always admire how you mix and match your colours so flawlessly! xx

Very beautiful card Lorraine. Card I made today is also everything hand cut since I don't have a cameo or anything else like that. And to be honest I don't like cutting with scisorrs.
I like your bestie's card it's very pretty. Hugs Veerle x

Milly Mae is adorable, I actually had a little Maltese terrier dog as a kid called Millie-May!

I love her colouring and the decoupage dimension of the image!

This is so gorgeous Lorraine and brings back fond memories for me too. I think that's what I created as well in the days gone by. I love going back too at times. Your creation is so very pretty.

Gorgeous Lorraine..I love all the layers and fabulous card design..I have sheets of decoupage animals in plastic bags all cut out and ready to go. I had a friend who used to call in and annoy me[lol] when I was trying to get work done,so to shut her up I gave her these sheets and she spent all that day cutting them out..I just never got round to using them...think I should get them out and make something now..

Beautiful card! I used to do a lot of decoupage but can't be bothered now ... my hands get too sore if I use my scissors too much, and I'd much rather be colouring anyway :)

Davi said...

MagsB said...

Terrific decoupage, Lorraine, I love the dimension that it gives! Decoupage was my 'way in' to papercrafting, too, I think it's magical how layering an image can give such life to it (if that makes sense?!) A fabulous card, hun!

love Mags B x
