Easter is coming with Cute Card Thursday

Well it seems that Christmas is barely out of the way and suddenly we have easter right around the corner! Time for lovely Spring colours and lots of bunnies, with sprinklings of Easter Eggs.
I have got it all covered on this card thanks to my Polkadoodles Winnie set and my Nitwits papers. My lovely Winnies is coloured with  Blendable pencils and blending solution which gives a lovley soft finish.
Plus I have lots of embellishments which come from an old Polkadoodles CD which I don't think is made anymore as it is no longer on their website, but I am sure you can find something similar by checking out the embellishments section in any of her CDs that you may have.

So I hope you like my card for today, and we look forward to seeing you over at Cute card Thursday!

Thanks for visiting.

My final sample from the Crafters Companion One Day Special

It's time for my final card from the One Day Special set from Stacey Barras.

For this card I have embossed the roe with white embossing powder and coloured with mu Aquablend pencils.

I also used the pencils to create a light wash in the backgrounds and I have used second generation stamping to add the sentiment in the background.

Finally I cracked open my Frantage pot to add some white sprinkles on the background.

So that's my final sample from this set. Stick around though - you won't have to wait too ling for the next new set to come along. :-)

Thanks for visiting.

Trailing leaves

Happy Monday to my followers!

I am back again with my penultimate sample from the Stacey Barras stamps featuring in the One Day Special.

I loved colouring this with my Aquablend pencils, especially all those little leaves which were so easy to cut out.....I can seem myself making a whole frame with these.

Hope you are able to catch some of the shows today.

Trailing Flowers

My final card today from the Crafters Companion One Day Special featuring today and tomorrow.

Again fussy cutting was required but these images aren't hard to cut out at all.

There are also some really nice flourished and fillers in the set, and you can see that I have used one here, which looks really nice with white embossing powder.

Thanks for visiting once again. I'll be back tomorrow with my final samples from this set.

More Stacey Barras florals

So the first One Day Special has now been on Hochanda, with the next show coming up at 8pm.

How are you liking the shows so far?

These are really lovely stamps which work perfectly with Aquablend pencils.

For my next card I have created a circular aperture card, using corner stamps for the top layer, and the large flower for the inner layer.

I'll be back in a few hours with another sample.

Have a beautiful day!!

 Hi I'm back with my next sneaky peak of the lovely stamps coming up on Hochanda at 6pm.

I loved playing with the stamps and my Aquablend pencils, and I wanted to remind myself that spring is coming, despite all the snow, so I decided some blooming flowers and blue skies were needed.

I love these flowers and I especially love the leaves which come in different shapes and sizes.

As you can see, I spent some time fussy cutting for this card, but the flowers and the leaves are pretty easy to cut.

The main flower is the same one stamped 3 times, but I just altered the angle and the length of the stem so that they looked different.

Finally, for the background i used distress inks and of course my trusty I every managed before i had that stuff I will never know!!

Thanks for looking!
