Falling Leaves...

Happy Friday,

Its day four of the sneak oeaks and today I'm sharing the Leaf Media plate and the skeleton leaves clear stamp set.  One of the most popular demos I have done with the media plates has been using a skeleton leaf I thought it would be handy to have a set of stamps to make this easy and to match!
















Here i have used a selection of the stamps in the background wit the foreground using the same stamps in a brown on white.  The sentiment t is form the same set.




Here I used a selection of the leaf stamps along with the Leaf media plate and some fantastic new Izink sparks for the background. Tune into the show to see what these are and how they are used.


More Tomorrow,

Enjoy...

More Dragonflies...

Happy Thursday,

Its day three of the Sneak Peeks for tis weeks launch of my new stamps and media plates, today its the turn of the Dragonflies.  As i'm sure you all know by now I love a dragonflies which Ive included in my die range, now there are matching stamps and media plate that all work together.  The Good News is that if anyone missed the dragonfly dies when they sold out last time they will be back in stock on Sundays shows.

I love the way the Dragonfly media plate has come out I really feel I can get some of the lightness of wings that they exhibit in real life.  Here I have used the smaller stamps on the plate and above with a mask to add texture.





More tomorrow,

Falling Feathers...


Happy Wednesday,

Its day 2 of the sneak peeks of my new ranges launched on Sunday.  Today its the turn of the Feathers stamps.  One of the most popular demonstrations Ive done with the media plates was using a peacock feather and I wanted to make this easier and have more feathers to work on the smaller plates.  Therefore i designed a set with all different sizes of feathers.

I am a large fan of peacock feathers and especially the colour mix they come in!


Again to see how these were made and to see the full range tune in on Sunday night at 6pom or through the day on Monday.

A Host of Butterflies...

Happy Tuesday,

Today sees the first sneak peak for my new range of stamps and media plates which launch on Hochanda Sunday evening at 6pm.  Today I am sharing the Butterflies, a new Butterfly shaped media plate and set of butterfly stamps.


















This first card uses the new Butterfly media plate simply with izink pigment ink brayered over and stamped.  You can also see a few of the butterflies form the stamp set.


The second card uses the media plate again this time with a Host of butterflies in black accross the front.  I also used my new smaller brayer for the stripe down the front.

Tune into the shows to see how these were made!


Another peek tomorrow,

Enjoy...

Red Drama...

Happy Monday,

Last day of samples using the Gerbera Daisy collection today as I will start to reveal a new range tomorrow in my media plate and stamping ranges which launch on Sunday night at 6pm on Hochanda.  I thought I would share this card today which is, in my opinion, really dramatic.

I started by cutting the Gerbera Lattice in white I then added this to a piece of red card that was covered in my double sided adhesive sheets.  I then cut the same die in black and paper pieced the centre squares back in using the fall away pieces form the black die cut.

Next I added tickles dry glitter over the exposed adhesive giving the patchwork look to the outside squares.




I rotated the die cut, with mats and layers of course, onto a panel of red embossed with the Crafts Too daisy lattice A4 embossing folder.

Finally I made up one of the gerberas shading the edges of the petals in red using all 6 of the flowers from the die cut.  I added a diamond gem ( from crafts too) in the centre of each of the flowers and added a dragonfly in white and black to finish.

Yellow flowers...


Happy Saturday,

As I have an unexpected Saturday off I am attending a workshop today rather than running one, Im really looking forward ti making an MDF Steam Punk grandfather clock with All Reeve!  Ill share some pictures of the day on facebook!

back to today and a simple card made with the gerebera daisy die and flower foam.

I cut the die three times form a piece of white flower foam.  I then shaded each flower using light yellow izink pigment ink pad.

I heated each flower to make them curl and threaded yellow stamens through the centre.


Enjoy...
