Dragon card

June is a busy month for birthday cards for me. Made this one for a friend who is very much into fantasy. The background was made by using masks and glimmer sprays. The dragon and the planets are Sheena Douglas stamps. The images were stamped and embossed and coloured with water colours and Brusho crystals. The sentiment stamp is by Personal Impressions. The die used is a Sue Wilson one. 
Would like to enter this in the Allsorts Challenge: Happy Birthday.

Colourful card

Hope you are having a lovely sunny morning like we are. Sharing a card I made for a friend's birthday today. I used lots of glimmer sprays and a really lovely stamp by Woodware. I stamped the image and embossed it in white and then masked it. Used three different colours to spray the background and then coloured in the flowers with watercolours. The backgrounds were all done with glimmer sprays as well. I used Memory Box dies, and Spellbinders in this card.

Lion card

Hope you are having a good Monday. I had a bit of time to play in my craft room today and made this card. The background was done using a star mask and custom blended paint, once dry it was embossed with a dot pattern. The lion was done using a Sizzix set of dies and pattern papers. The circles and tag were cut using Die-namic dies and the sentiment is from Crafter's Companion.

Gone Fishin' set

Sharing a couple of projects I made using Beccy Muir's Gone Fishin' images. You can see the projects by the other DT members on Beccy's Place

The cushion, above, was made by combining one of the images from the Gone Fishin' set and one of the sentiment which comes in the same set.  I then printed it onto a plain piece of calico fabric using my inkjet printer. Once I ironed it to make sure the ink was dry, I made it into a simple cushion. 

Then hanger was again pretty easy to make. I used two colours of glimmer mist and sprayed a piece of white card and let it dry. Once dry I put it through the printer and printed the image and sentiment from the Beccy Muir's Gone Fishin' set. I cut out the black and green layers with large Spellbinders dies. The other embellishments were Tattered lace dies coloured with Pebeo gilding wax. 

As you can see Beccy's images are very versatile so do have a look at all her wonderful images in her SHOP.

Decorated box

Decorated this storage unit, from Tonic, a few weeks ago and just around to sharing it. The cat papers I used have been in my stash for years and it's great to finally use them. The box was painted in green paint and then the papers applied to the cardboard pieces then to the box. Still trying to find a use for it.  
Hope you are having a lovely day.

Bit of sewing

Good morning and hope you are not getting too wet today. It has gone very dark here but no rain as yet. Got my sewing machine out yesterday, first time in ages. Made this portable ironing surface and iron holder. Saw a demo on C&C and it looked so easy. I made it a bit larger  and it's not prefect but it works. 
Thanks for your visit.

Splash of sunshine

Got some wonderful dies for my birthday and I just had to have a play. The flowers were made from one of the Sue Wilson dies and the leaves from Sizzix die set. The sentiment is a X-cut die and the background is a Sue Wilson. Hope you are having lots of lovely sunshine.

Yellow Rose and lots of glitter!

Good morning and hope you had a good weekend. This is a 8 x 8 card, a size I don't make very often. 
Firstly the cream card layers were all embossed with embossing folders (floral and dots). The blue and yellow background was made by cutting a piece of double sided sheet and put onto a piece of card. Firstly I put a mask with the crosses onto the paper with the sticky side of the tape exposed  and then added yellow glitter over it. The mask was removed and then the blue glitter (very fine glitter) was added and burnished well. The main image is a stamp by PSX which I just adore. I stamped and embossed it and it was then coloured with watercolours. I then used the water colours and the brush to add the background speckles of paint. 
Hope you like my creation as it's a bit different for me as I don't use this much glitter very often. To be honest I just find it too messy. :)

Simple card

Made a set of cards for a friend's birthday and this was one of them. It's a simple card but hopefully she will like it. Started by stamping a background (Club Scrap) stamp directly onto the base card. Then cut the decorative frame (Sue Wilson die) from cream card and the pink from a piece of card I painted with Brush crystals (made over 2 years ago). The sentiment  (Club Scrap) was stamped and cut out with one of the Sue Wilson dies. 
Hope you  have a lovely bank holiday weekend.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; 
bind them around your neck. 
write them on the tablet of your heart.

Hand painted bag

Made this bag for a friend's birthday. I used a 12 x 12 stencil and sponged white, yellow and red paint through. Then used Deco Art Ink effects fabric transfer into to transfer the image of the cat onto the painted background. The image did not come out as dark as I had liked but I went around it with a black dimensional paint and it looked ok. 
Thanks for looking and have a nice day.

Birthday card

Good morning and hope you are having a lovely bit of sunshine. The sky is blue and the sun is out, looks like a wonderful day.
Wanted to share this card I made for a friend's birthday. The background was made by first spaying two colours of glimmer inks through a stencil. It was then embossed and the corners punched out and the edges were inked. The flowers and vines were die cut (Memory Box, Pinflair and Tattered lace) they were all cut from spayed pieces of card. The dies use with the sentiment are Sue Wilson ones. 
Thanks for the visit and have a great day.
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
