Just a thought away

Hellloooo!! I hope you are well and enjoying this summer weather we're having!?! I know it isn't to everyone's liking but I love it!!
Today I have a card to share using a new stamp that I brought from Katy Sue Designs and coloured with my trusty Spectrum Noir Pens

The stamp is from the Simpler Times range drawn by Elisabeth Bell and is called Just a thought away ....isn't it gorgeous!
To make the card I used some First Edition papers which was an 8x8 pad called Rose Garden, I brought this earlier this year at the NEC from the Which Craft stall. The image was stamped onto some Neenah card and as I mentioned earlier coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens. The frame which the image is on is a die called Circle&Flower stitch by Marianne designs which you can by here you can also find the small flowers there as well.  The larger flower is made using my favourite Quilling Die'Sire dies to make the flowers I used the stamen, lace flower and small rose dies. The sentiment also comes with the image stamp :0) With a few finishing touches with ribbon and gems the card is complete.
Here is a couple of close ups of the image along with a list of all the pens that I used...


Hair- CT2, GB10 & GB8

Skin- TN3, TN2, FS9 & TN1

Dress- PP1, PP3 & PP5

Apron- EB1 & EB2

Hair flower and Ribbons- PP1, PP3 & PP5

Grass- DG1, DG2 & DG4

Teddy- GB8, EB2 & EB1

Cat- TN2 & TN1

A box with Barkley

Good afternoon!! Well have you been watching the pick of the week shows? It seems a lot of you have fallen in love with him and are already getting your orders delivered!!

Today I am going to share a couple more things I made with the cd rom. The first being this sweet little pillow box.

I simply printed the box onto some Centura pearl card cut out and assembled. :0)
I also added a topper which I had shrunk the page down to a5 size so they were small enough for the box, and a sentiment.

Next is a card I made from the Christmas cd.

This is one of the card companions, and some backing paper to match...a nice,quick and simple card :0)

Hello Barkley

Good evening! Did you manage to catch any of the pick of the week shows yet? Today has been the launch of the new Barkley range brought to you by the lovely Leann Chivers from Crafter's Companion

Here is a card that I made using the Everyday cd rom.

I used a topper, doilie and backing paper from the cd...I just love this image!!

I also used some of my die'sire quilling dies to add a 3d embellishment, there were...small rose, lace flower and stamen. I also embossed some Centura card with my Flower power embossing folder. Here are a couple more pictures...

Be sure to time in to Create and Craft to catch the shows and check out the inspiration from the rest of the talented design team :0) I'm sure it's going to fly!!

Exploding Barkley...

...well not literally!!! I am here today to finally share my first sneak peek from the new Barkley range from Crafter's Companion. He is GORGEOUS!! and today I am going to share my first ever exploding box.

Thanks to the cd rom all the hard work is taken out for you. It was simply a case of printing out cutting out the elements and then assembling.

Here's a pic of the inside...

The only thing I added that wasn't printed was the punched butterfly but was still using coordinating paper.

I will be back tomorrow with another sneak peek!! Bye for now :0)
