A little Sparkle this Christmas

Today I am sharing three more cards I thoroughly enjoyed creating.  They were really easy and simple to create and I am really happy with the outcome.

The Three Christmas Tree Die set with the Reindeer Die worked really with my choice of Kaisercraft Paper . You will also notice that I have used two different stamps here.  The Kaisercraft First Noel Clear Stamp.  This stamp  has four different designs included in it.  I selected this stamp for its wording in the last card I share with you.  The other stamp I used was the Darkroom Door Rubber Stamp - Christmas Sentiments.  I love the elegant design of this stamp.













Happy Creating!

Magnificent Monstera Mosaic



Mosaic artist Louise Proost from Loop Mosaics is a big fan of our products and has this time around created this magnificent monstera leaf mosaic using a selection of our Feather and Leaf   Bronze Charms



The combination of the Bronze Charms, Mirror and beautiful Gold Glass tile has given this piece lovely depth and texture. 




I really do think this is beautiful and love seeing our products being used in new and creative ways. I will be joining Louise on her next Mosaic Workshop she is hosting in January. 

If you are interested and would love to learn a new skill contact Louise for further info. 



Wishing you a creative weekend!

Mixed Media Mosaic Sugar Skull


I am so excited to share something a little bit different to what we usually get up to here at Craft Queen with you today!

Some of you may know that I have a background in Mosaic Art, so it has been so lovely to have met Louise Proost from Loop Mosaics.

Louise is a mosaic artist who has been creating original portraits, landscapes and mixed media pieces inspired by the world around her for the past 16 years from her beautiful home based studio on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. 


Through the creative combination of different materials such as ceramic tiles, mirrors, glass, beads, buttons and resin roses, Louise really puts her own unique style into each piece she creates.



Louise has created this  gorgeous Sugar Skull just in time for Halloween by making use of 

I have really enjoyed seeing our products being used in new and creative ways. 






Throughout her art journey Louise has shared her joy and passion for the art by teaching the craft to newcomers. From those who claim to not have an artistic bone in their body to aspiring artists.

Today I am sharing this classic Christmas themed card created by Robyn.  This is one of my favourites.  Here Robyn has used our very popular and versatile Village Die.  This die has many different uses and one to definitely to add your collection.



She has also used our Deer with Trees Die to add interest in the background.  I love the combination of these two dies, they really do go so well with each other.



To further add interest she has used our Fading Dots Embossing Folder.  This gives the beautiful effect of falling snow.


Finally, to finish it off and bring the Christmas theme together Robyn and used a few of  our Sequins
