Sweet Poppy Stencil Heart Anniversary Card

Hi Everyone and I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Today I am showing an Anniversary Card I made for my Mum.  I have used a Sweet Poppy Stencil which I first coloured with Distress Inks then used the Transluscent paste which I topped off with micro beads.  Once dry the colours were beautiful.

Unfortunately you cannot see the beads from the picture but they did make the card look lovely and just made you want to touch!

Hope you like it. Kx

MDF Coasters and JOFY stamps

Hi Everyone

Hope you are enjoying the weekend.  I thought I would post my coasters today as I made them just after Christmas but have not got around to posting them!  I spent a day crafting with my best mate Eileen Godwin who passed on her expertise for making these.  I used JOFY stamps and coloured them in with Distress inks.  I did spray them after they were dry with two coats of Spray and Shine which protects them from spoiling and gives them a nice shine.

The MDF Coasters can be purchased from Oyster Stamps. 

Thanks for looking. Kx

Lavinia Stamps Challenge #2 Bright & Beautiful

Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog.  Firstly, many congratulations to Barry who won the first Lavinia Stamps Challenge of 2015.  Barry is now the lucky winner of £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps and you could be a winner too.  All you have to do is join in the Challenge and you do not even have to have a blog as you can enter by e-mail.  So do join us and you too could be a winner.  Just pop over to the blog here

Here are my samples for this month:

For this one I made a pop up box card and used the digital stamp Lady of the Rose Garden for the flaps and the three zen flowers with a grass die cut behind them, all these are coloured with my trusty copics.

I used Distress inks to colour this one and a couple of stencils for the background.  I used the Fairy words for the background as they are great to use in this way.  I embossed the words in silver to make them stand out a bit without overpowering the image used on the tag - Flower Fairy - a very versatile stamp.  I popped a bright pink bow on the top to add some extra "brightness".

Hope you have a good week and I will see you soon. Kx
