A touch of Summer

Good morning, peeps!

I'm just popping in briefly to tell you that wor Sheena is on Create and Craft TV next Monday 19 January to show you some more techniques and ways with her wonderful new stamps and dies.  Her shows are at 9.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. - not to be missed!

In the meantime, here are a couple more of the cards I made as samples of what you can do with this collection - I hope you like!

Thank you for looking today.

Did you watch it then?

Good afternoon, peeps!  I'm talking of course about wor Sheena's show on Create and Craft TV that started at 3.00 p.m. this afternoon.  If you did miss it, it's usually possible to catch up on the C & C website.

Anyhoo, I thought I'd just pop in and show you the card that I've created with the Brambles stamps and dies, the Scarecrow and the Fields of Gold stamp.

It's hard to see in this photo but the berries in the foreground are glazed with Glossy Accents, which I also used to create some 'dew drops' on some of the leaves.  Sheena suggested triple embossing them with clear powder which is another way of doing it, so great minds think alike, eh?  Well, nearly anyway....if  my mind worked like wor Sheena's I would be a happy bunny!! :-)

These stamps and dies are so fabulous to work with and I'll be making another card with this set and a little help from one of its friends but I'll show you that another day.

Thanks for looking today, peeps!

Sneaky peeks, day 2

Good afternoon, peeps!

I thought you might like another little peek at some of the new stamps and dies that wor Sheena has been busy creating.  Apart from seeing what I've done with them, you can see the good lady herself on Create and Craft TV beamed straight to a TV set near you live from CHA in California at 3.00 p.m. on Monday 12 January - I forgot to tell you that yesterday - doh!!

Anyhoo, here is today's little offering:

The dies I've used on this one are The Old Tree, Country Fence and the smaller of the two corners from the Hedgerow Corner set - all really versatile sets to have!  The background and background stamping was done with Spectrum Noir Aquatints.

Thank you for looking today and I'll see you all again soon!

New launch not to be missed

Good afternoon, peeps!

Well the weather is dreary and stormy outside but inside my craft room it's summer!  Wor Sheena is over the pond all set to launch a series of new stamps and coordinating dies at CHA - yes I did say dies as well!  They are fabulous and it's an absolute delight working with them.  Here's the first of my sneaky peeks:


I love these Wild Roses and the die set includes the leaves and the stamens - I've enhanced mine a little with some Ranger Liquid Pearls, The curvy frame is another die in the series and will be eternally useful for all sorts of card designs.

Here are some more Wild Roses in a different setting:

The whole series is full of wonderful images all connected with nature and I'll be back tomorrow to show you some more!

Thank you for looking today.
