Heart Wall Hanging

Good morning crafters, Kirsten here, I hope you had a fantastic weekend. It was cetainly a cold one, looks like winter has finally arrived. My Starlights project for this week is three very quick & easy ones..............

I painted three of the small MDF hearts with White Gold & Rich Gold Starlights & connected them with cherry red gingham ribbon adhered to the back. I covered the ribbon with gold mirri card.

I painted pieces of white Super Smooth card with Red, Green & Menthol Starlights, then used the Leane Creatief Flower & Holly & Pine Leaves cutting dies to die cut the poinsettias & foliage.........

I used a Sizzix alphabet die set from my stash to cut pieces of double-sided adhesive & after adhering the letters to the hearts, I peeled off the top layer & applied Fran-tage Gold Lux mica & glitter mix on top. I pressed the mica & glitter firmly on to the adhesive, then brushed off the excess......

I had some spare hearts, so I decorated them too. This one I painted with Menthol Starlights, applied Pearlescent Dimension paste through the Imagination Crafts Holly Corner stencil & embellished with the Leane Creatief poinsettia & foliage cutting dies.............

This one I painted with Silver Starlights, added strips of double-sided tape, then added Fran-tage Silver Lux mica & glitter mix on top.

I die cut the Sue Wilson Winter Trees & painted the smallest three with Dylusions paint - Fresh Lime, Bubblegum Pink & Vibrant Turquoise, adding dots of Silver Starlights with an embossing tool............

That's it from me for this week. Hard though it is to believe, Friday week sees the Christmas party classes happening in Maidstone, Kent - they're also the final classes until February, 2016. The afternoon class is fully booked, but there are still places available in the evening class -
 6-30 to 9.30pm. 

The cost of the class is £18. This includes your projects & a full buffet, supplied by Lisa. There'll be party games, spot prizes & the Christmas raffle winning ticket will be drawn. 

If you would like to join us, please contact Lisa - or 01622 675078 - to book your place. You can also message the Lisa B Designs Facebook page.

Have a great week, see you next Monday.



  1. Beautiful Kirsten, I love them all. I was going to do a MDF piece this week, but after seeing these I've changed my mind, who could compete :o) Brilliant xx

  2. Loving all of these Kirst but you know the first one is my favourite. I might have to steal it to go on my wall at Christmas!! xx

  3. What a beautiful collection of projects. Those starlight paints are absolutely gorgeous and fabulous what you've done with them. Thank you so much for the inspiration and the wall haning is a real 'Joy' and very striking x

  4. I love the menthol one especially x all fab, you are a clever lady xx

  5. These are all stunning Kirsten, beautiful hangings xx

  6. Fabulous poinsettias. I love the rustic red and kraft look, and the sparkling silvery one conjures up glamorous antique baubles. The funky modern trees are very cool... what a variety of ornaments to decorate with, something for all tastes - great post.
