Creative Crafters - My Giveaway Blog Candy :-)

Good Evening Everyone

So, I was thinking the other day,.. wouldn't it be nice to see what all you lovely crafters make with my products... and wouldn't it be even nicer if you showed me!

And, what would make it even nicer?... if I gave away a bundle of my stamps to one lucky person who I will select at random from all of you who take the time to send me a photo of any craft project (doesn't have to be a card) where you have used my products...

There was the idea,.. It's a bit of fun, my way of saying thank you and to see all your lovely work too,.. but the giveaway is almost £90 worth of my stamps!!

Now, the rules (loose sense of the word)

  • None of my family or sample makers can enter (that really wouldn't be fair!) ha ha
  • You must have made your project with my products as part of the whole design (not just stuck a sentiment on at the last minute)
  • You can, obviously, have used any Creative Expressions products (it doesn't have to be 'just' my range)
  • You must be a follower of my Blog (if you're not, just click the 'Join this site' button that's on the right hand side of this page, it's free and all you need is your email address)
  • You cannot send me photos of someone else's work (I will check)
  • You must leave a comment on this post to say you have emailed me a photo of your project.
  • You can only enter once (one project)
  • No rules as to what techniques, style etc you use
Please send your photos to phill@honeypotcrafts.co.uk

I think that's it...

I will choose the winner on Wednesday 25th November at 9am, so please make sure I have your photo before then (any I receive after 9am on that day won't be included)

I know I'll see some amazing projects from you all!

Last thing..... Good Luck!

(I'm really looking forward to seeing your work!)

Frosty Mink - Christmas Greetings

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope for those of you who have  been fortunate enough to watch Phill's live shows on HOCHANDA today have enjoyed them so far.

The next show is 4.00pm and the last show for today is 7.00pm

Today's card is one from the show, which Phill did a variation of for one of his demo's.

For those of you who wish to replicate this, listed below are all the products used which can all be found on Phill's Website    www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk

8 x 8 Card Blank
White Card Stock
Frosty Mink P.V.A.
Frosty Mink Twinkles
Frosty Mink Gilding Wax
Frosty Mink Sparkle Texture Paste
Christmas Holly Sentiment Border Stamps
Cosmic Shimmer Ancient Copper Embossing Powder
Cosmic Shimmer Glacier Ice
Tracery 6 x 6 Mask
Sue Wilson Dies - Classic Poinsettia
Sue Wilson Dies - Mosaic Poinsettia
Sue Wilson Dies Portuguese Collection - Lisbon
Sue Wilson Snowflake Lattice Embossing Folder

This is how I created it:-

Because of the drying time I started by using the Tracery Mask and Frosty Mink Texture Paste, as this needed about 2 hours to dry.

8 x 8 Card Blank
The first layer I cut to 7.75 square and edged it with Frosty Mink Gilding Wax and attached flat to the card.
The next layer I cut to 7.5 square and embossed it with the Snowflake Lattice Embossing Folder, and attached flat to the card.


Making sure the texture paste was completely dry I then cut this out using the Lisbon Die and attached to the card using foam pads.

Next I  cut a strip of white card to 1.5" wide and stamped the Sentiment using one of the Border Stamps and heat embossed it with Ancient Copper Embossing Powder before embossing it with the Snowflake Lattice Embossing Folder to match the background. Than added this to the card.

Finishing Touches

Next I cut the Poinsettias out and shaped these before attaching to the card. I then edged the petals with Cosmic Shimmer Glue and Glacier Ice, and finished with a Dazzler to the centres.
 Frosty Mink Twinkles were then used around the small die in the centre .
Finally I used Frosty Mink P.V.A. in the centres of each snowflake.

                                                                  Happy Crafting

A Special Birthday Wish in Chic Aubergine (and a Giveaway Card)

Good Afternoon Everyone

Fog,.. perfect excuse to stay in my craft room all day! :-)
So, I'm taking the time to add a few more posts to the Blog, featuring some of the cards from my last shows on Hochanda and this is one of my favourites!
I absolutely love Chic Aubergine,.. it's a beautiful, rich, elegant colour that works so well on both white and cream cardstock...
You can be in with a chance of winning the card I made on air in Chic Magenta, over on my Facebook Page,.. you have until Friday :-)

Now, I did notice a few of you leave comments on my Blog that you're not on Facebook, so I will do a little giveaway card on here for you too :-) (details at the bottom of this post)


Here's what I used:
Foundations Milk Cardstock
Chic Aubergine Ink Mister, Twinkles and Pearl PVA Glue
Dies by Sue Wilson, Portuguese Collection, Lisbon and Corner, Border, Tag Set
Dies by Sue Wilson Camellia Complete Petals
Dies by Sue Wilson Curled Vines
Cosmic Shimmer Glacier Ice (shocked you that didn't it ha ha)
Sentimentally Yours Scribbled Sentiments Stamps
Creative Expressions Crystal Corner Embellishments
Creative Expressions Wild Roses A4 Embossing Folder

Here's what I did:
I cut all my layers from the Milk Cardstock, these were, 23.5 x 17.5cm, 23 x 17cm, 22.5 x 16.5cm and a 2.5 x 18cm strip for the sentiment.
I then did all the die cutting, which was the base layer, base and largest lacy layer of the Lisbon dies, the tag from the Corner, Border & Tag set, 7 Camellia flowers and two Curled Vines.
The base layer of the card was ink misted with the Chic Aubergine Ink Mister, as were the Camellia flowers and the base layer of the Lisbon dies. These were then set to one side to dry properly (only takes about 5 minutes, depends how heavy handed you are with the ink mister)

The smallest of the card layers was then embossed with the beautiful Wild Roses embossing folder (love this one, so pretty!)
Now the ink misted pieces were dry, I stuck the lacy part of the Lisbon die to the ink misted base with CS Glue, then went around the edges with my Chic Aubergine Twinkles and dunked it in my Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels. I then did the same to the tag die cut and stuck that on with foam tape, finishing by adding two drops of the Chic Aubergine Pearl PVA Glue to create two faux pearls in the perfect colour!

I then added a big blob of  Chic Aubergine Twinkles to the centre of the Camellia flowers and also dunked these into the Glacier Ice (note that I haven't shaped the petals of these flowers, just bent them up,.. this gives more dimension, particularly when you stick them to your card with CS Glue as it dries quicker)

I then stamped my Scribbled Sentiment and, as always, I used my Black Soot distress ink pad, I then shaped the end to create the tag effect, then applied Chic Aubergine Twinkles all the way around and dunked it into my Glacier Ice (so love this effect!)

Once everything was dry, I stuck all the base layers together with CS Glue, then added the Lisbon topper with foam tape, the sentiment was shaped, to create a curve, this was stuck with CS Glue, but just on the two points that make contact with the card, I finished off by adding the flowers and leaves as shown, then added the lovely Crystal Corners to 'frame' the whole card.. simple!

And here's the finished card :-)

As always, everything I have used is available on my website at www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk, but I do know the Scribbled Sentiments Stamps and Crystal Corners (and indeed the pearl ones) are very low in stock..

Anyhoo, as promised, here's the card I created on air on one of my Hochanda shows and this one is for my Bloggers to win,.. to be in with a chance of winning, simply leave a comment on this post and make sure you are following my Blog (you must be a follower to be able to win) (you can also share my blog address all over t'internet too if you want :-)
I will select a name, randomly, from the comments list this Friday (6th November)... Good Luck!

Until tomorrow,... Happy Crafting!

Petite and Corner Scribbled Sentiments in Decadent Wine

Good Morning Everyone

As promised, here is another one of my samples from this weeks' shows on Hochanda,..

On this card, I have used both the new Petite Scribbled Sentiments and the Corner Scribbled Sentiments.. I love the whole look of this card, particularly the co-ordination of colours and stamps (of course) ha ha

This is what I used:

Milk Foundations Cardstock
Wine Coloured Cardstock
Sentimentally Yours Scribbled Corner Everyday Stamps
Sentimentally Yours Petite Scribbled Occasions Stamps
Sentimentally Yours Tiny Little Ink Splats Background Stamp
Aged Mahogany Distress Ink Pad
Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels
Dies by Sue Wilson: Curled Vines, Camellia Flowers (complete petals), Lisbon, Porto, Noble Double Pierced Rectangles
Phill Martin for Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Wine Pearl PVA Glue
Pearls form the Stick Pink Elements Collection
Creative Expressions Fine Finials A4 Embossing Folder

This is what I did:

I cut all the layers for this card first, which were: milk card 23cm x 18cm, wine card 22.5cm x 17.5cm, milk card 22cm x 17cm, 21.6cm x 16.6cm.
I then cut the dies, cutting the base Lisbon die in wine card, then the base and largest die in milk card, the smallest label shape from Porto in milk card, 6 of the cammelia flowers and 2 curled vines in milk card.
The fabulous Noble Double Pierced Rectangle dies were used to create the frame (and I can honestly say that these and the Double Pierced Square dies are my new best friends - thanks Sue!)

The wine card was stuck to the base layer with CS Glue, the next layer was embossed using the gorgeous fine finials embossing folder (I also did the centre of the Lisbon die at the same time) and this was also stuck on with CS Glue.

I then stamped the bottom right and top left corners of the frame with the Scribbled Corner stamps, using aged mahogany distress ink. I chose 'Especially For You' as I thought it worked really well with the Petite Scribbled Sentiment 'Because You're Special', which is what I stamped in the centre panel. I also distressed the edges of this panel with the aged mahogany distress ink.
I then stuck the frame onto the card using foam tape (and CS Glue of course)
I stuck the lacey part of the Lisbon dies to the wine base with CS Glue, then the embossed centre on foam tape and finally, the stamped focal point with foam tape too..

I stamped all my flowers and the curled vines with the (now indepsensable) Tiny Little Ink Splats background stamps and aged mahogany distress ink pad, the flowers were shaped differently to the last card, simply by using the point of my tweezers to hold the centre of each petal and pushing the sides back. You will notice that, again, I have left them as individual flowers and not layered them up,.. this is why I love the Camellia flowers,.. so much you can do with them!
Naturally, they were all given the Glacier Ice treatment on the tips of each petal, as were the curled vines. The pearls were stuck in with CS Glue too.
I stuck them all on the card as shows in the photo with CS Glue (curled vines last)

I finished off by adding two bobs (very technical term) of the Decadent Wine Pearl PVA Glue to the top and bottom of the centre topper, then left it all to dry :-)

The finished card

And there we have it,.. another relatively quick card for me, but it's a very elegant finish.
I may even replicate this card again as I do like the finished result :-)

As always, everything I have used is available on my website at www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk, but I do know we have sold out of the Scribbled Corners,.. will be ordering more today so check the website to see if I have added more stock..

Until tomorrow,.... Happy Crafting!

Petite Scribbled Sentiments in Chic Moss

Good Morning Everyone

I've had a thoroughly good time at Hochanda over the last few days and I'm so pleased you are all loving my new Petite Scribbled Sentiments and the new Scribbled Birthday Verses,.. I do too! (albeit I am biased ha ha)

Thanks too for all the lovely comments on my Facebook Page and Twitter, I really do appreciate it :-)

So, you have some Blog posts from lil ole me this week and I will be giving away the cards I made as demo's on air (the last lot are signed and ready to go now)
I'll do seperate posts for the cards I'm giving away so keep an eye on the Blog and my Facebook Page..

Anyhoo, here's my first sample,.. in Chic Moss, which I absolutely love!

What I used:
Phill Martin for Cosmic Shimmer Chic Moss Ink Mister, Gilding Wax & Twinkles
Dies by Sue Wilson, Portuguese Collection, Lisbon, Corner, Border & Tag, Curled Vines and Camellia Compete Petals
Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels, Glacier Ice
White Cardstock
Creative Expressions Bed of Roses A4 Embossing Folder

What I did:

I cut all my layers in white cardstock, these were 23cm x 18cm, 22.5cm x 17.5cm, 22cm x 17cm and finally 14cm x 17cm (centre panel)
I then cut out my Lisbon dies in white card making sure I cut the largest die on it's own, then the three largest together, then the tag from the corner, border and tag set (including an extra one of the smallest for my sentiment), two borders and four curled vines.

The middle base layer, largest of the Lisbon die cuts and the tag were all then ink misted using my Chic Moss ink mister and put to one side to dry.

I embossed the smallest of the base layers and the inner die cut from the Lisbon set using the beautiful Bed of Roses embossing folder (I used the reverse or debossed side on this card as it's just as pretty as the embossed side)

I then cut 14 of the fabulous Camellia (Camilla ha ha) flowers in the same white cardstock, you'll notice that I haven't layered these flowers up either, I love them just simply shaped and left as individual flowers!
I used the Chic Moss Gilding Wax in the centre of each flower, not paying particular attention to this, simply a good application in a circle, I then let this dry for a minute or two, then buffed the gilding wax with a tumble dryer sheet (this also gets rid of any hard edges), I then shaped them slightly with my ball tool from underneath, applied a good blob of Chic Moss Twinkles and covered this with Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels (have you tried this yet?, looks amazing over the top of Twinkles)
I then stamped the bootiful Petite Scribbled Sentiment in Black Soot distress ink and edged this with Cosmic Shimmer Glue and applied Glacier Ice to this too.

The four curled vines and the centre die cut were also given the glacier ice treatment,.. just make sure you don't cover the whole of the curled vines with glue and glacier ice,.. I do it in loosely random spots to add more interest.. it makes them too 'heavy' if you cover them.

Now my ink misted layers were dry, so I started assembling the card.. so, the three base layers were all flat, the die cut borders were stuck onto the small ink misted layer, just on the edge and the edge of those given the glacier ice treatment, this 'panel' was then stuck on with foam tape in the centre of the card. The ink misted part of the Lisbon die cuts was stuck to the base layer and this was stuck onto the centre panel with foam tape, as were the extra layers of the die cuts, finishing with the sentiment on top.

The flowers and curled vines were all stuck on with Cosmic Shimmer glue around the centre to create a 'frame'.

The finished card:

And there we have it,.. doesn't take long to make this card really,..in fact, it's probably one of my quicker ones!
The card I replicated on air was in Chic Viola (another really pretty colour) and this will be the first of my give aways on my Facebook Page later today.

As always, you can find everything I've used on my TV Shows over at my website by clicking here: www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk  

Until tomorrow.... Happy Crafting!

Step by Step - Stamped Camellia Flowers...

Good Afternoon Everyone

As I've got 10 minutes spare (which is very rare these days), I thought I'd show you a couple of step by step photos of some flowers I have made to go on one of my sample cards for my shows on Hochanda next week,..

I'm so looking forward to these shows too, as it's the first time you will have seen my complete collection of Scribbled Sentiments (and 3 brand new additions too!)

Anyhoo, I digress!

You probably know from my style of crafting that I like symmetry (if somewhat loosely sometimes) in the 'decoration' of my cards,.. and die cut flowers are my favourite way of doing this,..

Now, there are no set 'rules' to how we make our flowers, plain, inked, misted, embossed.. the list goes on and on,.., but one thing I do love to do, is use my background stamps to add interest and 'another level' to the finished flowers.. with this in mind,. here are a couple of the flowers I have made today, using Sues' Camellia Flower dies (complete petals) and my own Tiny Little Ink Splats A6 Background Stamp... would you have ever though that these little ink splats would look so lovely on a die cut flower? No, me neither, until I made one (just goes to show, the only rules in crafting are the ones we impose on ourselves!) ha ha

Step 1 - Simply, die cut however many flowers you want from whatever colour cardstock you want..

I've used good ole plain Ivory card here..

Step 2
I then stamped my Tiny Little Ink Splats all over them with my Black Soot distress Ink Pad.

Step 3
Then, I curled each of the petals back, or rolled them back (if that makes sense), with my pointy tweezers (a quilling tool will do this too, as long as the card fits into the slot, I prefer my tweezers) (bone folders will not curl the petals back enough) I then loosened the bottom flower petals a little and, using my cosmic shimmer pva glue, made 4 flowers using two sizes of flower and 2 flowers using 3 sizes :-)

Starting to take shape!

Step 4
Then, using my cosmic shimmer pva glue, I put a full pearl (from the Stick Pin Elements range) into each flower,.. this shaped flower is perfect for it and I particularly like these flowers as they have a beautiful shape that is different to all those roses everyone does :-) 

Step 5
I finished off by putting pva glue on the edges of the curled back petals and dunking the full flower into my favourite, Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels.. :-) 

And here's the finished card :-)

Hope you like it,.. I may even demo this on one of my shows on Tuesday :-)

Here's a little reminder of my show times for next week 
Hope you can watch!

I then attached both layers flat to the card.

Using a sheet of Cream Card Stock and 2 Bracket Dies.
I lined these up each side and cut each one separate.
I then backed this with Mint Paper and attached to the card using pads to give dimension.


Using the Madison Square Die I cut out in Cream Card stock and backed with Graceful Mint Paper. I then cut the centre square out and using the Everyday Sentiment I heat embossed using Silver Embossing Powder, then attached all these to the card using pads.


Using Spellbinders Blooms 3 I cut out 2 sets using Cream Card offcuts and Graceful Mint Paper, then attached to the card, and also added the leaves.

Final Touches 

I used Cosmic Shimmer Glue on the petals and leaves, then sprinkled with Glacier Ice and added a dazzler to the centres.

Next I added Graceful Mint Twinkles to the edges of the large centre die cut and Graceful Mint P.V.A. to the outer edge of the sentiment square.

Finally I cut the butterfly out in Graceful Mint Paper and sprinkled the wings with Glacier Ice.
