Sunny Saterday

Hi there crafters
 so the sun is out but for how long 
that is the question
 today I'm sharing two cards with you all
 first one from Brambly Hedge 
i hope you managed to catch some of the shows
here is a card using the stamps coloured with Spectrum Noir
 i love the papers from this CD really pretty 
there is so much on this Cd i haven't touched the surface 
i used my die to make some co-ordinating flowers and the Heartfelt Creation Ornate corner die on this card

 the bonnet was made  using Spellbinder small scallop and plain circle the perfect size for an embellishment  i used Neenah card and coloured with Spectrum Noir

 if you like to make a bonnet 
 cut 2 x 1-1/2"scallop circles and 4 x1"plain circles
colour both sides of scalloped circles then glue together 
colour  just 1 of the plain circles  glue all 4 together with coloured one on top
and attach to the brim 
 while still wet give the bonnet some shape
  i just  formed it over my thumb leave to dry then decorate with bow and seed beads
i used the new Tacky Glue   from Crafters Companion it dries so fast ...

 my second card 
the soon to be released Country  Christmas Range
from Sheena Douglass 
painted in water colours

i love this stamp   i used a backing paper from a Nit wit  paper set some Core-dination  and Centura pearl card  embossed mirri from my stash and craft buttons  and cut glass glitter
for the sparkle
i hope you all have a great weekend 
what ever you have planned

i love how you can simply change the color of your painting to get a totally different season using the same Farm House stamp
went for a summer feel adding color to the tree tops 
 instead of snow we now have grass and flowers 
the DT have decided we are all moving in there to craft all day lol 
great as a retirement card don't you think .... so don't just think Christmas !!!

  The Pebeo Water Colour paint wheel 

this in my opinion it is Fantastic !!! I'm really excited about this
 your very own water colour paint wheel
just look at the array of colours you even have the  mixing wells and a brush thrown in for good 
measure now you caunt get better than that   
to have so many colours in one place  
Brilliant !

got another Brambly Hedge to share

Hi There Crafters
me again  it's just started raining here so i have to put off the painting in the garden
 great stuff lol not grumbling at all 
so are you ready for another sneaky peep of the Fabulous 
Brambly Hedge 
coming soon from 

using the stamp with this little fellow 
Wilfred Toadflax 
he is a mischievous little fellow
 so i had to make an explosion box for his birthday
the box is made from 15"X15" Centura pearl Snow white card stock
 i printed some backing paper from a previous Crafters Companion CD and embossed with the embossalicious patchwork quit folder then cut the fancy ornate corner Spell binders die as a lace over lay

here is a picture of the  lid with handmade flowers  using the Petite Petals die from Joanna Sheen
all colored with Spectrum Noir
pens then sprayed with a hefty  dose of spray and shine they really do look like porcelain 
the lace was from the embellishment kit also from CC 
the inside was decorated to the hilt lol 
well why not it was his birthday after all
 i didn't have any  colored Centura pearl card 
out came the SN pens to color the frames  the matting layers flowers and images
 i made the cake with white centura pearl card then decorated with pearls and ribbon 
the little candle is a piece of flower soft wire  bent into a flame shape colored dipped  in glossy accents and micro beads then rolled very tightly onto a strip of paper

all the elements for this project were firmly glued down with  3D gel 
and the fabulous new  Collall Tacky Glue 
i love that stuff do check it out bonds in seconds perfect for flower making 
 i do hope you have enjoyed your visit today 
 have a great day everyone 
thank you for popping by

What can i say !!!!

Hi there crafters
yes im still here been busy with these !!!
im sure your going to love them 
Brambly Hedge 
  launching  Friday the 14th of June over on Create and Craft as a POTW
there are a set of fabulous stamps a CD packed to the rafters with some beautiful things
 Hunkydory Paper kit
what more can you ask for....
 i had a ball....  i truly did... playing with the stamps
 there is something from every season / every occasion
in fact i couldn't stop  making samples
so here is my  starter for ten 
Mrs Eyebright off on her travels isn't she sweet
 colored with
 Spectrum Noir then distressed around the edge
the papers are from previous launched  Crafters Companion cds

 all the embellishments were cut using dies then colored with SN pens  
all firmly glued into place with  crafters companion 3D gel  and all purpose glue
once dry sprinkled on some glass glitter for frosty effect  then with spray and shine for that extra sparkle 

the black berries are Cotton bud/Q tips glued onto a Flower soft wire colored with pens coated with glossy accents  then dipped into micro beads the centers of the flowers are done in the same way the 
i think they work don't you 
little tip
 if you want to have a go at the blackberries color tip on the stick then cut or pull off then attach to wire saves getting messy  less fiddly to lol 
the wall hanging was cut using Grande Nestabilities then covered with backing paper
 heart shaped gems are from embellishment kit also from crafters companion..
