Sneak Peak

Sneak peak of my project using the Build a Wreath digital set.

The Build-a-Wreath set is a very versatile set.

All of the individual elements have been saved as .png files, which means they have a transparent background for clean and simple merging. That feature, combined with the ability for resizing and flipping, means there is an almost endless array of possible configurations you can discover.
Coming on 1st October  to Beccy's Shop

More tiles and Skipper

These Pebeo paints are such fun to play with. Got a few more unqlazed tiles and this is what I did with them. 

This was Skipper on Sunday on the hunt. She did cat a furry and thankfully she did not eat it. She is doing well.

Have a great day.

Birthday card for BIL

Background of the card created using Brusho crystals and lots of Tim Holtz stamps. I just love making my own backgrounds, it's so much fun. 

Coloured the gray-board with black gesso and then added various colours of wax and then edge it with Pebeo antique gold gilding wax. The name was cut out from card that was coloured with green pearlescent paint . The washers (real metal) were coloured with alcohol inks.

Really hope he likes the card. I am happy with how it came out.

Sewing project

Hope you had a lovely weekend. Was nice to get a bit of rain for the garden. Spent today making this beach bag for my sister, really hope she will like it. Did not measure the fabric just folded in half and cut where I thought it looked right, cut out the lining fabric by using the main fabric as a guide. Then cut out a square for the bottom corners of all the layers of fabric. Also made a pocket for the inside and covered a piece of mount board with main fabric for the base of the bag. 
Really please with how it turned out. 

Skipper is doing really well, she caught two furry things yesterday and brought one inside (alive)! 

Have a great day.

Playing with Pebeo paints and Skipper

This is Skipper's new best place to sleep. She is doing well but has been sick a few times recently so we are keeping a close eye on her. 

Below are two of the ceramic coasters that I made this week. Had lots of fun playing with my Pebeo fantasy paints. On these two I used both the moon and prisme paints and I just love the textures they produce. Have a great weekend.

Monkey Madness!

Time for another new release from Beccy Muir and this time it's a super fun set of digital stamps and sentiments. The new set is called 'Monkey Madness'. You can find the set in Beccy's shop and more inspiration on Beccy's blog. Very exciting things happening over at Beccy's Place so do check it out.

Really adored working with these images and can see myself using them for lots of different occasions. 
A lot of work went into making the fist card as all the backgrounds are handmade. The blue was done with Brusho and then over printed. The next layer was done by stamping the fancy image and then stencilling over it with the flower image. Piece of paper was coloured with Glimmer mist and the leafy branches were die cut. The sentiment is from the 'Monkey Madness' set. The main image was printed and then coloured with alcohol markers and some pencil on top.

The second card was made by printing the image and sentiment and colouring it with pencils and then stamping the leaves over the edges and colouring them with Pitt pens. Layered onto patter cards and then button added.

Hope you will take a look at Beccy's Place blog .

Playing with Pebeo fantasy paints

First two projects using my new set of Pebeo Fantasy paints. Hubby does not like the colours but I like the effect of the paints.

She is loving being outside whenever she wants. 

Have a great day.

65th Wedding Anniversary card

Was asked to make an anniversary card for a friend. Really pleased with how it turned out. The base card was cut with a Tattered lace die and so were the layers and numbers. The image is a Penny Black one and coloured with pencils. 

Skipper is doing really well.

Would like to enter this card in the
Penny Black and More Challenge: Anything goes with a stamp.

Have a great day.

Mermaid set

Hope you are enjoying the lovely sunshine today. It's time for another release from Beccy Muir called 'Mermaid set'.
You can find the set on sale at Beccy's shop and inspiration on Beccy's Blog.

I created the card above with the image and sentiment from the Mermaid set.  Firstly I printed the image and sentiment onto white card and set it aside to dry. The image was coloured with pencils and some glitter added to the hair and tail. The back ground was made using glimmer paint onto white card. Used a free stamp which came with a magazine to add the detail at the top of the background. The sentiment was cut out with a die and tinted with panpastels. The twigs were cut using a die and coloured with panpastels. 

Thanks for looking.

Sewing project

(updated photo with the top-stitching, much better)

Finally got around to making my own microwave bowl potholder. Saw this tutorial on Syzygy of Me blog a few weeks ago and knew I had to try it. Bought my 100% cotton batting from Amazon as it was not easy to find. 

Update on Skipper
She is doing really well and want's so desperately to go out again but until she has her boosters and flea shot she is grounded. After the 12th August she can go out as much as she likes. 
Thank you for all the kind words and thoughts for her.

God Bless.

Easel card and Skipper

Hope you are having a wonderful day. Sharing this card I made for a friend's birthday. The image is from the 'Cool Chicks Set' digital image set. The image and sentiment were printed onto white card and the image coloured with pencils. A black marker was used to add the dots and the stitched lines. Used a new alphabet die set to cut out the name. Hope  he will like it. 

Also Skipper is doing really well. The feeding tube site is almost completely healed so as a treat I let her out to play. She had a sniff at all the plants in the garden and then went along the field to one of our neighbours bridge. She is eating but still not as much as she should but we will get there. 

Can't thank you enough for the kind words and prayers for my beautiful girl.

Light in the Darkness release

Thank you again for the lovely wishes for Skipper. She is doing better.

Time for another release by Beccy Muir and this time it's a wonderful set of lamps and sentiments called 'Light in the Darkness' and there is a paper set to complement it. As always the set contains both the black and white images and coloured. You can find more inspiration on Beccy's blog and the set in her SHOP.

My creations, using two of the images and sentiments, are a card and a fridge magnet. The card was made by printing out three of the papers from the digital paper set 'Light in the Darkness' and the images from the image set. 

The images were coloured using pencils and odourless spirit. Once coloured they were cut out and the image for the card was attached to the card. The fridge magnet was done by adding some pieces of magnetic sheet to the back of the coloured image and sealed with gloss medium.

Hope you enjoyed looking at my projects.
Have a great weekend.
