Barkley 4 Day Deal!!

Morning, hope your keeping well and all you Mothers had a fabulous Mothers Day yesterday. I had lovely day and my eldest daughter invited us all over for a gorgeous roast dinner, Mmmm I could eat it again today, was scrumptious. Thankfully she didn't get her culinary skills from me lol. Well today is the launch of the adorable Barkley Collection from Crafters Companion, we all loved the first Barkley Collection so much we wanted more! To see the full collection in all its glory watch Dawn today on Create and Craft Tv, you won't be disappointed. This is one of the samples I made for Dawns show, I have used the Barkley stamp set, Barkley designer paper, Barkley epoxy stickers, Barkley 'Dottie' embossing folder along with Die'sire sunflower and blissful quilling dies, Die'sire scalloped tags die and Die'sire lace border die. The stamp has been coloured in using Spectrum Noir markers and edged with distress ink. I will be back with more Barkley samples through the week, enjoy the rest of your day. :-)

Die'ing to craft with Die'sire


Have you been catching the sneak peaks of the fabulous new Create A Card die's from Die'sire? The design team have been sharing their beautiful samples and the dies are being launched this weekend on Create and Craft Tv, catch the tool shed on Sunday where Leann will be showing exactly what can be achieved with these beauties. My first card has been made using the 'Enchanted' die, I have cut and embossed it onto designer paper and inked through the die with distress inks, the flowers have been made using the Die'sire quilling dies, Marigold, Sunflower and Blissful. 


The inside ~ Lace border 5 from Die'sire and the centre from the 'Extravagance' die.


My second card has been domed, I think these dies are perfect for this type of design as the edge of the die does not cut which means your not stuck with a 6x6 cut out. I put acetate at the back of the template and the centre has been stuck on the base of the card. I will be back tomorrow with more sneak peaks. Enjoy your weekend. x

Create A Card Die Sneak Peaks

Hey peeps, I'm very excited to show you some new products on the block, these are amazing! The new Create A Card die's from Die'sire are being launched this weekend on Create and Craft Tv. I have two samples to show you today, the first is using a die called 'Enchanted' which I've made into a little easel card. The dies cut and emboss the intricate design and I've also used it as a stencil to add some versamark ink which I then covered with mica powders, I then gave it a little spray with some 'Spray and Sparkle' iridescent which also helps the mica powder from smudging.  I quilled some flowers using Die'sire Rose quilling die and marigold quilling die using Centura Pearl Dark card. The base of the card has been embossed with 'Regal Swirls' embossalicious folder and the sentiment is from the Sentimental Stamps range. 


My second card is what I call my 'hippy chick' card using the Create a Card die 'Extravagance'. This card has been made in a dome with acetate and the non shiny side of centura pearl card. I've taken 5 colours of distress ink and some cut n dry foam and blended the colours all over the card and flowers before I have made them up, I love how the flowers turned out which have been made using Die'sire large and small sunflower quilling die. I will be back with more samples using these gorgeous die's tomorrow. x

R.A.M. Sneak Peaks

Hi there, I'm a bit late with my sneak peaks, I planned to do this on Saturday but I've been floored with the flu, seems everybody is suffering from it at the minute and its awful, avoid anybody with it!!! You have been warned! On a brighter note, I am so excited to share my Rachelle Anne Millar samples with you, I totally love her adorable images and Crafters Companion are releasing two amazing Cd roms and stamps on the 7th March on Create and Craft Tv. For this card i have used one of the beautiful animal stamps and coloured it with spectrum noir pens, the sentiments that accompany the stamps are fantastic, love this one. I have used the gorgeous Die'sire cameo stamping frame with the image, fits this stamp perfectly. The background has been embossed using 'Beautiful Bunting' embossalicious folder and cordination card sanded back to reveal the embossing and the grass has been made using the Die'sire Icicles die, didn't it work well as grass? 


I will be back tomorrow with some more R.A.M. samples using the cd roms. Omg they are so cute!!

Exciting new launch :-)

Hi there, I have a couple of samples to show you that i made for the latest launch of some stunning new embossalicious folders from Die'sire. The launch is tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9 on Create and Craft tv and your certainly in for a treat, not only are there fabulous folders on show but a fantastic Embossalicious resource cd rom with gorgeous papers, embellishments etc and ontop of all that four new stamp sets from the sentimental range!! 
My first card has been made with elements from the cd rom and the 'Gothic Script' folder, I embossed some vellum paper with the folder and lightly inked it with distress ink. The sentiment has been taken from the new 'Vintage' set of sentimental stamps and has been stamped onto kraft card die cut from Die'sire Chantilly Lace stamping frame. 


I have taken one of the stamps from the 'Vintage' set and triple embossed it with gold embossing powder giving the look of a wax seal. 


My second card was made using 'Antique Keys' embossing folder along with the embossalicious cd rom and sentimental set 'Nature' . I love the cute flowers and bunting from the cd rom that match perfectly with the folders :-) 


I will be back with more samples tomorrow, enjoy your evening. xx

For Girlies and Dudes :-)

Hi there, Just popped on to share some more of my samples from the new Angelica and Adam collection, which is currently the four day deal on Create and Craft Tv. These cd roms are fantastic as they have even more features than previous cd roms, including a Spectrum Noir Companions section , Scrapbook Companions, Digi Stamps, and loads more! Your going to LOVE them. My first card features one of the adorable digi stamps, isn't she a cutie? I have coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens and although you can't see it she has been well and truly glittered. The little flower has been made using a Die'sire rose quilling die and leaf 2 die, love coordinating these flowers with my images. 


Now for the little dudes. This card was made using the card companions section of the cd rom, I've put a bit of embossing in the background using a 'Dottie' embossalicious folder but all the other elements are from the Cd rom.

Angelica and Adam Sneak Peak

Hello crafty peeps, hope your keeping well....and dry! The weather has been terrible, thankfully I'm in the house for the rest of the day as I near got the head blew off me earlier, walked into work looking like a banshee!! Anyway, I'm here to tell you about a new release from Crafters Companion. The Angelica and Adam collection is the four day deal on Create and Craft from Monday and your going to just love it! Below are two cards I've made using the cd roms. The digi images have been coloured using Spectrum Noir pens and these images are a delight to colour and the best thing is you can make them any size you want as they are digi images :-). My first card has been made using papers from the cd rom and I've embossed using 'Floral Frenzy' embossalicous folder from Die'sire. The sentimental sentiment is from the 'Love is all you need' set which has been stamped onto the gorgeous Cameo Stamping Frame. 


And here is little Angelica again, coloured with spectrum noir markers, just a pity the glitter isn't showing up in the photo :-( I will be back with more sneak peaks from the Angelica and Adam range. Enjoy your weekend and stay safe. x
