Ruby Rock-It Handmade Embellishments

It's my turn on the Ruby Rock-It blog, and I show you how to put together this collection of handmade embellishments:


I used a sheet of paper from the Heritage range, as well as some of the pre-made embellishments and accessories that come with the range to create unique decorations to use on my next project.

Stitched Threads Frame stamp

Here's a card I made using the new Stitched Threads Frame stamp from Darkroom Door:


This stamp went straight to the favourites tub! I can already tell it's one that I will use often - it saves me pulling out my machine to stitch up a border myself.

Pop over to the Darkroom Door blog to see some awesome samples from Suzz, Anneke and Belinda.

My baby is turning 10! How did that happen???!?

I made her a card using some super sparkly Kraftastic paper from Bella, and a page from a Mixables album from Clear Scraps.  Here it is:

Darkroom Door Ornate Frame Stamp



This frame stamp is yet another lovely release from Darkroom Door:

Frame Stamp - Ornate Mirror (NEW)

I have used it on these two cards:



I love that it adds a touch of formal frilliness to a creation without being overpowering. Details on how I made the cards can be found on the Darkroom Door blog together with some more samples made by the talented Belinda Spencer.

Darkroom Door Sewing Spools Background

..and yet another lovely large background stamp from Darkroom Door. Something sewing themed - I present Sewing Spools:



Yes - I did go to all the trouble of punching each individual spool out with a circle punch. And then I coloured each one and stuck it back in place. And what's more - I plan to do this again and again! Love the effect - so eclectic - reminds me of my own mum's sewing tins full of treasures and treachery (she'd always manage to leave a needle sticking up where you couldn't see it but boy could you feel it!! Ouch!!)

You can find more ideas for this stamp on the Darkroom Door blog. Thanks for stopping by!

Darkroom Door Fishing Net Background


Ooooh - another new lovely background stamp from Darkroom Door - Fishing Net. Love it! Here's my sample:


I just love that this background has some natural form to it - it's not rigid and straight. Lots of character :)


Full details on how I put the card together can be found on the Darkroom Door blog.

Have a great weekend!
