Chocolate Baroque Door Hanger

Hello and thanks for stopping by. If you have arrived here via the Chocolate Baroque Design Team blog then I hope you liked my very first guest design team post. I was so excited to be invited as January's guest designer and could not wait to get started with these fantastic stamps.
My little blog has been a bit neglected over the past couple of years but I am hoping to turn that around this year and make it a proper showcase for my crafty creations, so I would be most grateful for your return visit.
 The two stamp sets that Chocolate Baroque sent me for the January blog posts were Punky Hearts and Fluttering Hearts and have used stamps from both sets to create this resist technique, door hanger.
I started by covering the wooden door hanger with Peacock Feathers Distress Stain and then stamped and embossed the heart stamps with white embossing powder. I added some Teal and Cranberry Tinka Billa inks and then wiped the excess from the embossed images. I stamped and embossed the butterfly and heart image using black detail embossing powder and painted with cranberry, teal and orange Tinka Billa inks. After cutting out and mounting onto the hanger with Pinflair Glue Gel I finished the design off with some beads attached to a strip of chipboard using eyelets and jump-rings.
Many thanks for looking and any comments would be most welcome. I hope to be back soon with more Chocolate Baroque makes.


  1. Thank you for being our guest designer this month Julie. Love what you have made here, the Fluttering heart makes a fab focal point, well done. Lesley

  2. Hi Julie, Wonderful project! Really love the colors and the embellishments. Thank you for your visit. Is there anyway of following your blog by email? I looked for a box in your side bar but I couldn't see one. I will be back later with a cuppa to have a good old nosy at all of your fab creations.
    Have a lovely weekend.

    1. Hi Flo, thanks for the visit, my little blog isn't used to visitors as it has been a bit neglected for a couple of years, but I have added the email follower button for you. Many thanks for stopping by

  3. This is a great project Julie and the Peacock Feathers stained background works so prettily with the white embossed hearts. I love the beautifully coloured butterfly heart as the focal point and you have finished it perfectly with the gorgeous beaded detail. Thank you for your lovely comment. x

  4. Congratulations on being a guest blogger for CB. Your project is so lovely and showcases the stamps really well.

    Like you, I neglected my blog but found my mojo this week, after a year of not having any, and I spent the past 7 straight hours in my stamp room.

    I look forward to seeing more of your work.
