Window Of Flowers

Just popping in quickly to show this card which has the most adorable image on it from Nicecrane Designs and you can find her here.. Used the window die again because it is my fave at the moment.

Tend to do that when I buy something which I really like … flog it to death … then on the shelf for a few months gathering dust. Hands up among you crafters who doesn’t do that with their new goodies.

Pretty Girl

Here is a little sneak peak of what I will be showing for my Fashionable Stamping Challenge Project on Sunday … you will just have to pop back to see what I have made with them.

Post It Note Holders

Whilst home in the UK at Christmas time I had a crafty play day with my good friend Brenda and she gave me a beautiful Post It Note Holder which she had made. She gave it to me because I was quite poorly at the time and she knew that when I had seen it posted on her blog I just loved it. How kind is that. You can see Brenda’s post here.

What are we crafters like … hooked or what … I had to have the die which was a Tim Holtz Sizzix Index Card Folder … brilliant.

Anyways I made one so you get to see not only mine but also Brenda’s.

Brenda’s is the one with the ribbon on and mine has the little mouse which was printed onto tissue paper then mod podged.
More images below of the front and back … Brenda’s first then mine.

There is a new challenge blog just starting girls and I am entering the above into it … go check it out and see who is on the Design Team.

Country View Crafts Challenges – ‘Pick & Mix’ … that’s anything goes to you and me!!!


Love That Hat

Nicecrane Designs have some gorgeous images which you can print onto tissue paper beautifully, then add to your tag, canvas or whatever artistic medium you want to. Mod Podge is my choice of adding to whatever I am using but you can use whatever you feel comfortable with.

I chose this image to use on my tag which you can find here because she looks so elegant plus I had some flower soft on my desk which went so well. Used another piece of tissue paper which I already had in my bit box because the little rose image complimented her.

For the background I used the water and alcohol inks method to give a marbling effect on the tag, then sponged over with some translucent paint to give a beautiful sheen. The little piece of netting plus the flower soft finished her dress off just right.
