Well it is my turn to host this week's Challenge at Allsorts and my title is Let's Get Cute. I have chosen the following card to show you just how cute I can go!
Is that cute enough for you!!
Arrrrrrrr I hear you say. This is one of the most gorgeous images from the stamps from Joanna Sheen's Holly Hill Pond. It is quite a simple design using papers, inks and a few fishy embellishments. The fish were cut from a Cottage Cut die and then coloured and glazed with Crystal Lacquer. The image has been coloured using pro-markers.
Pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog to have a peep at the other Design team members designs.
I hope that you like this. I have also got the last few (for now!) from the Spellbinder samples.
This one was a really quick and simple demonstration to do and I used the Adouring squares in quite a simple format. I used the very outside die and one of the inner dies which cuts and embosses but doesn't cut it totally out. I also used the Argyle mask from Special Touch but it isnt easy to see this. A rose embellishment and some swirly pearls just finish off a quite romantic card.
This second card was made using the Timeless Rectangles. I cut the biggest die and one of the smaller inner dies to cut a framework. This really makes a fabulous result. I have punched a few flowers, stamped a greeting and finished the card off with some black pearl pva in places. The background was made using the Quilted designs and some of the Creative Expressions Crochet ribbon.
I would love to hear from you all again, thankyou for some fabulous comments and so pleased that some new members have been able to find me and join the blog.
Tomorrow I have a day at the shop making samples for my future shows. Some rather delicious products to work with and will share these really soon.
I hope that you all enjoy a lovely weekend
and if you have a few minutes leave a comment I just love to read them.
Bye for now
