Roses are red....or in this case 'Pink'

Just thought I'd quickly show you a card sample that I have made for Particraft, using the 'Dream' stamp set - I think this is a really gorgeous and very versatile stamp set.

I have used distress inks and cosmic shimmer watercolours, incorporated some stitching and ribbon weaving. The background frame is a cuttlebug die and the main image has been stamped on a nestability shape.

A somewhat romantic feel but I have not added any specific sentiment leaving it open for various options.

Hope you're all enjoying the summer holidays!!

You Rock my World!!

It seems that all I've been doing lately is apologising for my lack of bloging!! Unfortuntely, with kids on holidays and a number of workshops/demos and DT commitments - its not going to get alot better! BUT, I will hopefully be posting pics from those workshops/demos and DT's, plus some new tutorials, perhaps just not on such a regular basis until things get back to normal again - OHH and not forget that in between all these goings' on - I'm also moving house in a few weeks time!!!!!!!!!!!!...........(...luckily you couldn't hear me scream just then!! lol)

Anyway, here is a project that I did yesterday using a digi download image here and the papers are also digi downloads from here - the sentiment I created on my pc simply using wordart! - and I just love these new gothic brads which I bought at the Stamp Attick.

Dont forget to enter my blog candy this month - you can still enter and be in with a chance to win up until Friday 31st July - Good luck!

In His time.......

I just thought I would show you a very simple project that I made with a group of church ladies that I do worshops with. It was such a simple card to make, yet I think its simplicity is what makes it stand out!!

Both stamps are from Particaft the butterfly is here and the flourish is here, the butterfly has been coloured using cosmic shimmer watercolours and I have added some stickles for the glitz effect! The sentiment I came across on the web somewhere but couldn't tell you where...'cause I can't remember, one of those things I see and jot down in my book!!
