Spring Flowers.

This is the view from my craft room today, the sun has come out but its bitterly cold so I decided to make another spring themed card.

Again I have used the SSS "Artful Flowers" and coloured them with Zig Markers to look like Primroses.  The leaves are from the SSS "Spring Flowers set " not sure where the lattice die came from. Then just added the gold embossed sentiment.

I shall add this to a couple of challenges, the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Easter Inspired" and the SSS Flickr Group Challenge "Easter/Springtime"

Have a great week.

More Snow and Spring Flowers!!

As I write this post this is what's happening in my garden, after a week of spring like temperatures we have been plunged back into winter with this snow storm!! It looks so pretty out there but I am wishing for Spring and all the lovely Spring flowers!!

I have been playing with my new "Modern Flowers Card Wrap " die from Simon Says and decided to cut two and place on my card base to from a circle.  I then stamped and embossed in gold Some SSS "Artful Flowers" and watercolour in yellow to look like the primroses that were just flowering in the woods near here. I layered these along the die cut join then added pearls and sentiment.  They make me smile even though we are snowed in!!

Adding this card to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Easter Inspired" and the SSS Flickr Group Challenge "Springtime/Easter"

Hope the weather is better where you are.

Blue Cosmos

Just a quick post today as I am getting ready to travel up to Surrey to help my daughter with an art project she is doing at school.  We are making felt and I am looking forward to helping the children, I love to see them creating!

After making the Pink Cosmos card at the weekend  I wanted to try the stamp in blue.  Used Peacock Distress ink for this card and then washed some of the image with water and a brush.  Love this flower stamp I am sure I am going to use it a lot.

I shall add this to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Girl Power" and also to the SSS Flickr group challenge "Cut it Out", lots of dies used for this card.

Hope you have a great week.

Pink Cosmos !

Its raining today so I have had more time to play with my new stamp from Simon Says the "Cosmos Background".  This time I have stamped with Distress ink onto Bristol Paper and then with my paintbrush just dragged the colour into the flowers.  Added a die cut sentiment, then decided against any bling, hard but I don't think the image needed it!  Love this new flower stamp I can see lots of possibilities with it.  Watch this space as they say lol!!

I shall add this card to this weeks Simon Says Wednesday challenge "Girl Power" and also the SSS Flickr group challenge "Cut it out"

I have a new stamp!

Its a lovely spring like day here and I want to get out in the garden but I have just received the "Cosmos Background" stamp in the post from Simon Says Stamp and I had to ink it up.  So I made this really simple card by stamping and embossing the image in white on some Kraft card and die cut with the SSS "Stitched Square Die". Love this pretty stamp and it is stunning without any colour although I can't wait to give it a try in pink!!
Just added my die cut and stamped sentiment tied with thread and a few sparkles and hey presto!!

Now to get out in the garden, its hard to believe that this time last week we were in the midst of a snow storm!

Pretty in Pink!!

We have had some really bad weather here in Dorset, snow and freezing rain which is very rare for this part of the country.  I have been stuck indoors as the roads and pavements are sheet ice and its too dangerous to go out.  So what's a girl to do, make cards of course!!

Here is one I made using the "Kaleidoscope Background" stamp from Simon Says and die cuts letters from, Altenew.  I stamped and embossed in white then watercoloured with Zig Brush Markers,  I then fussy cut an extra shape to add some dimension before adding the Die cut  "Hi"and sentiment.

Here is a close up , I am adding this card to two challenges, the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge

Thought I would also share this card again using the Altenew  "Bold Alphabet Dies", this card is for my Goddaughters little boy who is five today.  It was very easy to make with the die cut letters and balloons cut using my Silhouette machine. Love this simple design.

Before I go here is a  couple of views from the front of my house, so pretty but so cold and the sky is full of more snow!!

Hope its warm where you are
