June Creating with Lizzy..

A big hello to you! I have a few things I would love to share with you today. I just love to use some SCRAPMATTS on my creations!

I have a couple of cards to share.  It is so easy to use some SCRAPMATTS on a card.
My first card is a lovely little one that could be used for any occasion using the lovely little HELLO from the word pack CB6106,

  and a cute little card border..CB1020

which I have embossed in white..
and my card..
I have also used two stencils for some light texture on the back ground using stencils

 and ST1028.

For my other card I thought I would try and do some mosaics.
I had a pack of these lovely urns and I thought I would try and jazz one up!

I painted it with black gesso and this would be the color of the grouting. Then I cut out some paper in the shape of the urn but a little bit smaller. As I cut up the pieces I stuck the pieces of paper on the urn in a mosaic pattern.
And this is what it looked like!
I created some stamped flowers and put my urn on a doiley on a card and added a sentiment from the pack CB1244

  and my finished card..

I hope if you have  one of those urns in your stash like I have, you will be inspired to do some mosaic work on it, it is fun and it looks great!

I also have a layout to show you that I created for a challenge.. The challenge included using the word DRAMA on my layout.. Well I wanted some dramatic chipboard and I just love the effect the flourishes have created on my layout.. I have used the flourishes from the pack CB4013 in black..


  What drama they have added to my layout!!

Those flourishes really pop off my page!!

And remember to pop over to the SCRAPMATTS GALLERY to check out lots of creations using Scrapmatts, it just might give you some inspiration for your next project. All of the Scrapmatts  products I have used can be found in the
