Stamped out the flower head onto newspaper , Fussy cut it out and coloured using the same inks.
I stamped the complete flower over the newspaper , coloured the leafs using some bright green paints
and adhered the flower heads
Stamped on the sentiments , how yummy are they!
I then used the star from the second set and randomly stamped I added Nuvo drops to the centers
(Carnation Pink & Plum Pudding)

Then doodling around the newspaper and card edge

Fiskars Day

What a very wet Wednesday we are having
I have just come in from shopping luckily the rain missed us but is absolutly pouring down now
For my little project that I am sharing today I went with a card and matching tag.

 I cut lots of little lines of paper so easy with my paper trimmer and weaved together my center . For my flowers I used a mixture of punches, heart/circle/flower, and feather for the leaves. I'm loving sitting playing with shapes to see what I can make .

 I added a few sparkly sequins , some matching pearls and a snip of ribbon to finish

Lady Bea Strikes Again

Happy Sunday to you all I hope you have not got the rain we have had this morning
Well did you spot my post yesterday
I had coloured up Lady Bea from Julia (JMC Art & Design)
As I was colouring her the colours Turquiose were screaming in my head and they just would not go with what  had already painted , sooooo whats a girl to do? Colour another of course...
I adore her I wonder what colours I should use next?
Do you love her as much as me?
If you do pop across she can be yours for free
You can find Lady Bea here
Let me know when you have coloured her up I would love to know your colours
Soooooo I used Distress Inks to colour up
and Oxides on the background
I have a thing for using scraps of newspaper just now so I did just that, colouring and stenciling over.
I used various stamps and a little stencil sequin waste here and there
Spot the teensy stamps I love these and think they suited Lady Bea
I then used the stamps Hello Friend ~ thats to all my lovely Friends out there
I then had a accident *OH NOOOOOO* I dropped a stamp across one of her arms so covered that using yay stamp and I actually quite liked it so *OH NOOOOOO* became *My Happy Mistake that was completly planned)*

Huge Happy Friday , The sun is shining
I have had suchhhhhhhhhhhhh a good week with one thing and another (more on that soon)
But lets just say dreams can come true....
Have a great Bank Holiday Weekend to my UK friends
and a Happy weekend to everyone else too

Anyways on to my Fiskars project for this week

I made some little  little pillow boxes , I used my Fiskars heart punch to decorate the front punching out twice, so the patterned one sits onto the white. I then used my lovely heart shaped hand punch which is so cute and now lives forever on my craft desk.

 I used the tag punch for my sentiments just trimmed to fit my projects. I finished off with the butterfly punch and added some sparkly gems to finish, Perfect for those little gifts or fill with sweeties

Fiskars Meets The Craft Cotton Post

Happy Friday to you all
I am so excited to be sharing these projects with you I had great fun making them
Fiskars and The Craft Cotton Post are having a collobaration

 For my first project I decorated a canvas board using the Eastern Botanicals collection fat quarters for the dress. I do love a pretty dress! I used the mini heart shaped punch for a fancy border. The small flowers were made from my little circle punch these are so much fun to make . I used some lovely papers on the background and then punched some hearts and a butterfly to match. I finished of with a little stencil work on the background and adding a few more tiny hearts

I totally loved making this adding lots of stencil work , an MDF swirl

For my second project this was based around my Granddaughter .
 If we are not found crafting together we can be found baking ~ Of course mainly fairy cakes! So we decided to make a matching little apron and hair bow. This time I used the heart punch as a template and using some fusible interfacing cut out my hearts 😊.... Felicity has decided it may be nice to have matching bows for all her outfits

(spot the whisk )

Thank you so much for stopping by today

As You Like It ~ Fav non card project
I liked both of these projects for different reasons. It was nice to make a change from playing with paper - Also being a very basic sewer it brought me out of my comfort zone , but who doesnt love a challenge . The apron and bow really suited my Granddaughter and she is over the moon which makes me very happy :-)
The canvas I just love the elements and the colours

Happy Tuesday to you all
Today I am sharing with you a little card that I made using 
2 x A4 Stamp Sets from Crafty Individuals
I totally love there stamps
the two sets that I am playing with today are
Ladies & Gentlemen
Vintage Collage
I saw a challenge the other day which really appealed to me , Over at Country View Crafts and the theme is opposites. So searching through my stamps I found these beautys that were both free on Creative Stamping Magazines (issues 67 &70)
I used the Gentleman and Lady as my opposites and tried to to incorporate different images for each 

These were first stamped onto rice paper

I added a few odd scraps of paper and a postage stamp etc
I was quite pleased how it turned out .....eventually ......this was attempt 3

I love all the the little stamps 
I added some lace to finish off - Volcan Viscose Lace
