Moonbeam Meadow

Hello lovelies, 
I have some more sneeky peeks for you today of a gorgeous new range from Crafter’s Companion…the whole design team have fallen in love with this range…i think a lot of you will too ! 
It is called Moonbeam Meadow and has some beautiful images…both Animals and Peoplte, and there is some amazing stuff in the range too. 
It is going to be a Four Day Deal On Create & Craft from Next Monday (29th September) And included in the range is the following- 
12 stamp sets, 2 CDS
Everyday collection:
Everyday CD-ROM 
Hugs and Kisses 
Just a Note 
Love Birds 
Time for Tea 
Time Out
True Love

Christmas collection:
Christmas CD
Christmas CD-ROM 
Festive Cheer

Here is a couple of my Design team samples for the shows. 


This is one of the Frame Cards from the CD ROM, I printed this onto Kraft card and added some glitter and some Ribbon…these Frame Cards are brilliant if you want to send something a little bit different. 

How cute is this stamp ? I have coloured it using my Spectrum Noirs- IG5,IG4,IG2,IG1,DR6,BG1,BG2,BG3,BG4,GB9,GB8,EB3,JG6,JG5,LG4
The paper is from the CD Rom, I kept this card a bit more simple and added the black lines around the edge using a gel pen.

This is one of the Fabric Companions and I have printed it onto watercolour card and then embossed a panel of Centura Pearl Hint of silver with one of the Vintage Christmas Embossing Folders, I then just added some ribbon.

Hello lovelies, 
I have sneeky peeks for you today of a gorgeous new range from Crafter’s Companion…the whole design team have fallen in love with this range…i think a lot of you will too !

Here is a couple of my Design team samples for the shows. 


This is one of the great frame cards from the CD ROM. I have printed the frame part onto Centura Pearl and then just added some glitter, one of the embellishments and some ribbon and twine. 

I LOVE this stamp, this is coloured with my Spectrum Noirs – GB10,EB3,EB5,EB1,EB2,GB1,JG7,JG6,JG3,DR6,CR8,IB1,IB2,IB3,TB1,TB2,TB3,TB4,TB5,GB7 & Blender 
I have used some of the papers from the CD ROM and mounted them onto Crafter’s Companion Kraft Card, the sentiment is from the stamp set. The Die is from the Die’sire Range and can be found here.  

This is one of the Fabric companions from the CD ROM and I wanted to show that you don’t have to use them on Fabric, I have printed it onto Vellum and then created a tree hanger, the papers are from the CD ROM and I have given them a layer of Spray And Sparkle Gold…this will look great with some twinkling fairy lights behind it 🙂

Pansie in a teacup.

Hello Lovelies, 
I wanted to share my latest Treasured Times Rubber Stamps card with you today. I have used the beautiful Pansie in a tea cup by  Tracey-Lynn Miller which can be purchased here
This stamp is truly beautiful and so versatile…and brilliant to colour. 
I went for a slight vintage feel with this and coloured it using my Spectrum Noir Pens 
I don’t think you need to add much to the card with this stamp, so i just added some cheesecloth, die cut corners and some distress inks. 
I made this card for a special friend to say thank you,  but this image can be used for so many different occasions.  
Have you checked out the website ? There has been TWO exciting new releases this month, by some amazing artists so make sure you check it out. 
Also don’t forget to check out the Challenge Blog  the team always make some fantastic cards and you can win some great prizes 🙂

Thank you for all popping by and leaving such lovely comments x
This months challenge at Crafter’s Companion is Autumn, I wanted to do something different for my DT entry and decided to do a card with no colouring !!! ( I know shock horror) 
I have used one of the brilliant Taste of India Embossing folders by Sheena….(pssst they are currently on offer and can be found here)…I have used some Core’dinations card in Autumn Colours and used some Gilding wax around the edges. The sentiment stamp is also from Sheena and is from the A Little Bit Sketchy Poppies & Daisies Stamp Set

Some Odd Girl Alice Mae

Morning lovelies, I hope you are all good ? 
A huge thank you for all your lovely comments…i really am very blessed to have such lovely friends 🙂 
I wanted to share my latest card with you today, I have used the cute Alice Mae from Some Odd Girl…I haven’t coloured any SOG images for ages and had forgotten how much fun they are !!! 
Here she is…
Aint she cute ? I coloured her with my Spectrum Noirs (list below) and used the inner oval from the Die’sire Cameo die and then inked over it with Broken China Distress Ink. 
The sentiment is one of my favorite Alice in wonderland quotes…
“I know who I was this morning, But I have changed a few times since then” 

Which I did on the computer and them inked around the edges, I went for a simple card because i think she is such a fab image you don’t need much else. I added the brads and mounted the sentiment and image both using Collall 3D Glue to give it some depth. 
I hope you like Alice 🙂 
Items used: 
Spectrum Noirs- Skin – FS2,FS4,FS3,TN3,FS8 

Hair- EB1,GB10,GB2 

Eyes, dress & shoes- TB1,TB2,TB3,TB4,IG1,IG3,IG4,IG9,IG10 True Black

Love and be loved

Morning lovelies, I hope you all had a nice weekend ?? 
Thank you to everyone who took the time to come and visit my blog over the weekend, it is always lovely reading all your comments x
I wanted to share my latest Visible Image make with you today. I have used some of the stamps from the new release celebrating 75 years of The Wizard Of Oz. 
The Stamps I have used are from The Tin Man set 
I decided to make a tag…well you know me, any excuse to get inky !! 
I used Crafter’s Companion Watercolour card for this….it works brilliantly with any inks. 
I have used my Dylusions and then stamped the heart and picked some sections out using white paint. I then sprayed a strip of card using Cherry Pie Dylusion and stamped the sentiment and heart and then ripped along the edges and glued onto the tag.
This was a total non planned just go with the flow thing. 
Don’t forget the current challenge is Make It Sparkle and you can enter via the blog or via the Facebook Group, just make sure you use a Visible Image Stamp and you could win £20 to spend in the shop !!

I have used Whatever the Weather…what do you think
I went for a really bright and bold card and had so much fun ! 
I have of course coloured with my Spectrum Noirs (list below) and i have used white paint to add some dots…not sure if i like the dots or not…I then added some die cut flowers, enamel dots and sequins. I really did have fun making this card and will definitely be colouring more of these images.
