Cogs, Gears and Tattered Time

Hi Everyone….

Well I have had an absolute crafting blast for the last 5 days… I have made loads of projects,  I’ve made cards, mobiles, books, bingo boards… and so on 🙂  … It’s just unfortunate that I’m back to work tomorrow after the easter holidays.. but I have had so much fun!

I had one last job to do tonight and that was to make a birthday card for my brother in law who is 50 this coming friday.

Here’s the card I made… loads of inking and cutting paper and scor tape 😉 and I have to say the idea for this card shape/dimension came from one I had seen on Pinterest.


Supplies Used :-

  • Matboard Die cut’s from my friend Deb (think they are Accucut Diecuts)
  • DCWV Tattered Time 12 x 12 Stack
  • Glitz Design Love Games Patterned Paper
  • Burlap
  • Scortape
  • Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
  • Thickers White Vinyl 50
  • Spectrum Noir Brown Alcohol Ink Pen to colour the 50
  • Tim Holtz Gear Diecut
  • Distress Crackle Paint in Clear Rock Candy
  • Black Textured Cardstock from Papermania
  • Corner Chomper

Have a great week and thanks for popping in

Altered Bingo Board

Hello everyone, hope your all having a lovely Easter Monday 🙂

Before I head into today’s project, I would like like to congratulate Susan (Dancing Dragon) on becoming a mum, by giving birth to a baby boy today … well done Susan 🙂     also I would like to congratulate Mitzi Curry on becoming a Grandma for the first time 🙂  Love to you both and your family.

Today’s project is an altered Bingo Board or Clip Board that Maria sent me last year, I came across it when I was rummaging through my chipboard drawer yesterday 😉 … so thank you Maria, I have now put it to good use!   In fact it has gone to very good use as it has got a new home already ….and become a notice board for my mother-in-law’s kitchen…. It is already gift wrapped and on its way there as I type this …

Supplies List :-

  • 1 x Bingo Board / Clip Board
  • Daler & Rowney White Gesso
  • Decoart Spring Green Acrylic Paint
  • Ranger Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint
  • Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden 12 x 12 Patterned Paper
  • Stampin Up Butterfly Embosslit
  • Tonic Studio Butterfly Punch
  • Amber Rhinestones from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Ranger Glue n Seal Matte Adhesive
  • Diamond Stickles
  • Frayed Burlap Distress Ink

I love the effect on the crackle paint, once its dry, rubbing over some frayed burlap distress ink so that it soaks down into the crackles and gives this neat look…. (you wipe the excess ink off with a damp cloth to restore the top of the project and leave the ink in the cracks) 🙂

in hindsight… I should have used some texture paste to blend out the lines of the paper, so that there were no lines showing… but you live and learn, and I can always remember this for the next one that I make… because I want one now lol

Thanks for Stopping by 🙂
