Today I am showing you the Cosmo Cricket Pixie Paint with the Waffle Flower Lacey Dies! I start by creating some paper with the Pixie Paint. I used a Watercolour Paper pad – but any watercolour paper will work. I like to work on a large piece, but you could also do this for a card background. I spritz my paper with water – the powder will stick to the water and start dissolving. As the pigment hits the water they start to form beautiful colours. You just need to tap lightly. I used all 4 colours of the Pixie Paint and let the colours blend in areas. I like to dry the paper between layers and then add more colour.
Once my background was dry I then used the Waffle Flower Lacey Flower Mats dies to cut out the coloured paper. I tried cutting the watercolour paper with the Lacey Flower Dies, but found the paper too thick for the intricate designs. So I cut the Lacey Flowers out of white cardstock. I then layered the dies, as pictured about. There are many combinations, all of which look beautiful. I finished off the card by writing on a sentiment.

I want to start by saying I have always loved Delysees! I have coveted their mini Chocolate Croissants, their fresh sandwiches and, of course, their macarons since they opened 3 years ago! But after meeting Fred Naggar, the owner of Delysees, I now know why! Every item they sell is carefully crafted and worked with until they are happy to serve it to their customers! They spend hours developing their recipes!
I had the pleasure to go into Delysees to speak with Fred and taste some of their latest Frozen Treats! Right in time for Summer! Above is the Lindt Chocolate Gelato Macaron! Their Frozen Macarons come in 6 flavours: Lindt Chocolate, Fresh Strawberries, Madagascar Vanilla, Alfonso Mango, Fresh Raspberry and Salted Caramel. They take 4 days to prepare! The Macarons are soft and the right amount of chewy, with a creamy gelato – perfect for a hot Summer Day. This smaller size is $3.95 and they is also a larger size available for $5.95.
Above is the Madagascar Vanilla Macaron. I love Vanilla and this treat was extremely flavourful! The entire Frozen Macaron is made from scratch at the Delysees Bakery.
Delysees is also offering Mini Frozen Treat Bars. Currently available in 6 flavours: Cheesecake (pictured above), Praline, Salted Caramel, Double Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Raspeberry and Vanilla Chocolate. These sell for $3.50.
All of the Mini Frozen Treats have the Praline Crunch in the middle. The Mini Frozen Bars take 1 day to make and are always fresh! They are constantly working on new flavours, so check in regularly to see what is new and to grab some amazing treats!
Delysees is located at 780 King St. W – 1 1/2 blocks west of Bathurst.
Today I am showing you how to Mono Print using Crafter’s Workshop Templates and Distress Inks. The first thing you need to do is select your template. I decided to use the 6″x6″ Mini Mumsy Stencil. I wanted a stencil that would stamp an image. I first used the 12×12 stencil, but the design was too big for my project. I found the 6×6 a better size for the cards.
Next you add your Distress Inks directly to you stencil. If you have the mini Distress Inks you can get smaller areas of colour. I added the colours lightest to darkest to prevent contaminating the ink pads. You then need to spray the template with water. You want to add a generous amount of water.
Finally you just stamp your stencil onto your card. I use a piece of paper over top to press the stencil onto the paper. Once the ink was dry I wrote on the sentiment.

On the next episode I am featuring the Cosmo Cricket Pixie Paints with the Waffle Flower Lacey Flowers dies.
Today I am showing you the Cosmo Cricket Pixie Paints and the Technique Tuesday Flair stamps and dies! I started by painting my 2 pieces of watercolour paper. To do this I used the Cosmo Cricket Pixie Paints. I first sprayed water onto my paper and then tapped the Pixie Paints onto the sheet. The water helps the powder to start to dissolve into the watercolour paint. On this project I just used 1 colour of the Pixie Paints on each layer. You keep adding powder and water using you are happy with the design.
I then die cut the Technique Tuesday Flair Pull Strip onto my top layer. This die is perforated – therefore it doesn’t completely cut out the shape. When you give the card to someone, they can then tear it open to reveal the gift! I stamped the sentiments with the Hello Flair and Smile Border stamp sets.
From here you just want to lay your gift card under the paper and glue the top layer in place!

On the next episode I am mono printing using Distress Inks and Stencils!
Today I am showing you how to use 2 colours of paint to stamp with Art Foamies. Art Foamies come with a Stamping Buddy. This acts as your ink pad. I first stamped the image using Archival Black ink onto the Stamp Buddy. You want to use a permanent ink, so the image stays while you are adding the paint. I then used a palette knife to help spread the paint over the image, keeping it in specific parts of the stamp. I added a 2nd colour in the remaining parts. You can add as many colours as you want. I now have my stamp pad ready to go and I can start to stamp multiple images. Once you are done, be sure to clean out the excess paint and clean to paint off of your stamps!
