Northern Trees

Hey, I thought I would pop in with some inspiration & a great technique that I've been meaning to try for sometime!! What I have created fitted in nicely with the challenge at Global Design Project here is the theme:

I eventually got round to doing this 'Northern Lights Technique' & quickly fell in love with it, even my class attendees enjoyed themselves & really want me to do it again! So I'm sharing this with you:


A little close up:


Thanks for popping over to my blog & I hope this has inspired you to attempt this technique! It is so simple & effective have a go yourself!! 

See you soon,

Birthday Blooms

Hey There! I thought I would pop in with a  great colour challenge that the Global Design Project are running. I really love these colours that they put together for this challenge. Bermuda Bay being my fave colour!! So this is the colours that the design team picked:


I thought I would do something a little different & do use the Birthday Blooms stamp set by using the neutral as the stems rather than a green! I really like changing colours for something a little different, here is what I created: 


I then didn't have enough Early Espresso card stock when I was running my class so used the Tangelo Twist for the backing, here is how that came out: 


I just coloured them in with blender pens & for the stems & leaves I did dark for the big leaves on the bloom stamp & then went in lighter with the other leaves & stems. I wanted to show that contrast of stems & leaves. 


A little tip, I stamped the bloom image on a post it note twice as well as a single flower, which I then put over the stamped image to then stamp next to one another. 

Thanks for popping in to see what I created, see you soon,

Thank You International Blog Highlight

Hey there, I was browsing through Kylie's blog & noticed this great International Blog Highlight challenge, I thought I would take part as I needed to do a Thank You card for a recent online order. If you head over to Kylie's blog please vote as you can see all the other creations people have made & vote for your fave, so please like mine.

I have recently taken part in a watercolour online class which Erica from Pink Buckaroo Designs ran. This was my first attempt at creating a watercolour wash background:


I used the sale-a-bration stamp set What I Love to create the floral image, as well as the sentiment. I then just added a few rhinestones. Here is a close up: 


Sorry for the photos being so dark, taking pictures late at night is not the greatest idea! But hey I really enjoyed creating this card. Thanks for popping by.

Showcase of projects

Hi all, 

I thought I would share with you some of the items I create, from cards, scrapbook pages & the occasional 3D project. I've recently created these: 


Here is a close up of all the projects individual. 

With the envelope punch board I created these lovely crackers: 


A close up of the fancy fold card I have made:


First time geocaching last summer. I used the compass stamp to create the background on this page:


A small milk carton filled with some chocolates, using the scoring board: 

   

Great texture on this masculine card, just by scrunching paper: 

   

And finally a lovely bloom card created using a blender pen, I love how on the pale flower some of the old olive ink has merged with the blushing bride creating a very lovely natural looking flower: 

 
Thanks for stopping by to see my creations,

Freshly Made Mothers Day Sketch

Hey there, I had a class last week which I was prepping for with the Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack, which I wanted to use to create a feminine card. So with Mother's Day coming up in the UK this week I thought I would challenge myself & I came across this great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches:


I thought that the map paper within the stack would be perfect as Mum's really do mean the world. So I paired it with the summer silhouettes stamp set to create the feminine look, here is what I made:


Here is a close up of the flower scene, I also mounted the back of this with some of the black designer series paper stack & some whisper white organza ribbon just to give it that added feminine touch:



I really like this sketch & think I'm going to create some more, a great way to use up all of that designer series paper too!!

Thanks for visiting, see you soon,
