Hazel's Create and Craft Samples

Good Morning Everybody,

I hope you are all well today. The weather seems to be picking up so maybe we will have a summer soon!

Today we are showcasing the Dragon's Samples.

Hazel has embossed the 'Little Toerag' mask through a die cutting machine with embossing ink then heat embossed the card. I love this card!!

Hazel has embossed the 'birthday girl' sentiment and inked though the 'presents' mask.

Hazel has used the 'Happy Birthday' mask to create a quick yet effective birthday card. This mask can be used with alternative colours making it ideal for all ages.

I think this is a great use of 2 masks. The 'tulip field' and 'Check This Out' Mask. Lots of blending and shimmer.

Hazel has inked through the 'Psychedelics' Mask, stamped an image and created a stunning card.

I couldn't get the shimmer with the camera, but Hazel has blended and shimmered this card. It is very sparkly in real life. Hazel has used the 'Butterfly creator' to make the butterflies on the card.

    The card above has been created with one of our favorite masks, the "Wow Today" mask       from the Happy Birthday Create & Craft Kit.  This mask is so easy to use, its has also been used alongside the Psychedelics mask to make a simple yet effective card. 

The next card has been created by using a number of Distress Inks blended over a mask from the Check This Out' kit along with two masks from the Bountiful Butterfly Kit, although Bountiful Butterflies Kits 1 was a Create & Craft exclusive, you can find the second kit in the series here.  I think that we are all in agreement that this is a lovely example of a card.

Thank you to our 'Dragon' Hazel for some beautiful samples. Be sure to check back next week to read Hazel's introduction into the team.

Tomorrow is the last day of our Create and Craft samples and we will be showcasing Annette Lee's cards.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our blog,
