Don't mention the R**N!!!!

I will not mention the weather this post except to say I am in serious danger of getting mildew!

Onto brighter matters and a quick sneaky peek of a card made with the new wild-flower stamp set that is being launched by Sheena on C&C at 8 a.m. on Wednesday. This card is stamped onto a Luminarte and radiant rains background and then over stamped with archival black - the whole thing is liberally covered with Pearl gold shimmer mist which you can't really pick up from the card but may be able to see if it is in the show.

Have a warm and cosy Monday evening folks xxx

Good Sunday Morning

Shh! Don't tell anyone but the sky is not leaking here this morning, hope the same is true for you. I thought that I'd share another card this morning from Sheena's new silhouette stamps that launch on Wednesday. This time I have used the Highland stag set teamed with Luminarte radiant rains. I do like the fact that they stand up against dramatic backgrounds - I think the Celtic border is going to be one of those "go to" stamps too. As always the new collections are crammed full of highly usable images:

The background on the main image was made using Luminarte and the background my new favourite technique alcohol marker pens and blending solution.

Sheena's shows on 18th July are 8 a.m. on Create and Craft and 12 noon on Ideal World. I am definitely going to be watching and look forward to seeing all the hints / tips and fabulous cards from my design team pals.

Have a great Sunday xxx

Is the glass half full or...

Today's post is so late its early ( for tomorrow). I blame my new found obsession with needle felting and shortage of elastoplast! However without further ado and to make amends for my tardiness 2 cards ( one from  each of Sheena's new sets launching on Wednesday 18th July)

The first is from the stag set using distress inks on centura card:

and the second using the wild flower set, I love the sentiment in this one:

So, Wednesday 18th July C&C 8 a.m. and 12 noon on Ideal World and double discount day for C&C members too

Have a crafty weekend xxx

Good morning - the sun is definitely shining

Well, good morning all!  There is definitely sun here today and I have some samples made with Sheena's new silhouette stamps to share today  and the stamps are GORGEOUS!!! The shows are NEXT Friday (18th July) 8 a.m. on Create and Craft and 12 noon on Ideal World - if you like them (what am I saying, if???) then it is definitely worth tuning in...I will say no more (nudge, nudge , wink, wink - taps side of nose mysteriously)

So as I have pin cushion fingers ( I had my first play needle felting yesterday and, put it this way - it was a good thing that I was using red wool!) I will keep this short and share  a sample:

 This is using a set which has a great  silhouette of a stag but I was rather taken with the little owl too... reminds me of northern lights - but that may be my fevered imagination and too much Harry Potter!

Have a fab day - don't forget to make a date for the shows in your diaries xxx
