Party Frock

Party Frock (1)

Evening all. It’s officially the start of the Summer Holidays! Mr 7 finished up on Friday but we had Miss 4’s preschool leavers service at our local Church today before the Holiday’s got properly underway. And to kick things off we are having a movie evening (watching Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) and off to Legoland tomorrow….I think I’m more excited than the Children.

Anyhoo, back to the point of my post is that one of my favourite shops Noor Design UK are having a design team call and although my style isn’t the most frou frou (for want of better words) I love the papers, embellishments, dies etc that they sell. and couldn’t resist trying out.

First up is a picture of my card and I’ve used an All Dressed Up image which can be found as a rubber stamp here:

I love making Easel cards, but (and I know I always say it) they are a bit tricky to photo:

The papers are by Craftwork Cards and were part of a previous Crafteezzee collection.

Now Tracy has asked us a little about ourselves, something I find hard, but here goes…..I’m a stay at home Mum to Mr 7 and Miss 4, and as of September Miss 4 will be starting school so I will have a little more time for crafting (but shush don’t tell Hubby)! I’m not ashamed to say I’m addicted to crafting and barely a day goes by when I don’t craft or colour in or both.

As I said above I don’t think my style is quite as embellished/layered as Tracy’s lovely team, a style I admire but just can’t achieve , but I think I would be able to show the products in a different way.

Ooops quick edit….forgot to say what social media I’m on: Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Right that’s enough waffle and I’ll just leave you with the supplies.

Fun in the Sun

Phone Case (6)

Afternoon all. We had a busy day yesterday as it was Miss 4’s Preschool Sports Day and the Preschools 10th Birthday Celebrations. So I had a lazy evening watching Bridget Jones Baby. And after a little lie in and lazy lunch I’m about to get crafty, but first I thought I would share another sneaky peak.

There are new Cherry Green stamps that will be launching on Hochanda on 26th July and today I have another make to show you, this time a phone case:

Phone Case (4)

I stamped the image onto tissue paper and very carefully coloured it with Spectrum AquaBlend Pencils, using only the teeny tiniest amount of water to Blend the Colours.

Phone Case (7)

I then very carefully stuck the coloured tissue paper into the phone case with a generous amount o Ranger Glossy Accents.

Mermaid Kisses

Mermaid Kisses (2)

Morning All! It’s Fab Friday over at Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and decided it was about time I made another Mermaid tag.

I’ve had this little cutie from the Amy and her Mini Mermaid Friends coloured up for quite a while:

I have nearly complete the little set of tags, I just have one more mermaid to go.

I coloured the watery background with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens and although it doesn’t show in the photo it gives a nice shimmery effect.

By the Sea

Canvass Picture (1)

Morning all. I have a sneaky peak today of some new Cherry Green stamps that will be launching on Hochanda on 26th July at 10am.

I tried something a little out of my comfort zone on this make. I wanted to incorporate stamp into a picture:

Canvass Picture (3)

I found the old canvas picture in a charity shop for £1…bargain. So I painted over it with a mix of emulsion tester pots and acrylics to create the background. I then stamped in the little girl with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and painted her in flat block colours (painting over the details). Once dry I re-stamped the girl to add back the details, which I enhanced with ColourBlend pencils.
