Distress Oxide With Tonic Cerys Fairy :D


A best wishes card experimenting with Distress Oxide ink blending and using the gorgeous Cerys Fairy stamp and die along with Nuvo Alcohol pens to create my focal element :D  I got these gorgeous fairy stamps and dies a while ago, and I've used one or two of them, but I have been dying to colour one with my Nuvo Creative Alcohol Pens, and I've finally gotten round to it :D And as I had the coordinating die (this also has a stand alone intricate inner die too) I thought I might as well create one of my inky messy backgrounds, so I used a couple of colours of Distress Oxide and a Tonic stencil to create a washy orangey pink background :D I added some dangling hearts using one of the leaf stamps from the Modern Buttonhole stamp set, and some hand drawn ones too, then I finished it off with the Best Wishes sentiment and a scattering of pre-made black and white Nuvo Crystal drops :D Hope you liked the card :D

Spellbinders Feather Scripty Greeting Quartet :D


For this weeks Spellbloggers video and blog post, I decided to do a quartet to feather cards, using the stunning stamps by Stephanie Low!! :D And I took my inspiration for the colours from the two sets of sequins in the Spellbinders celebrations range :D :D I LOVE LOVE LOVE this feather stamp, and I hope to own the others in the collection at some point too as they are just GORGEOUS!! :D I combined these gorgeous Spellbinders stamps with some sentiment stamps from Avery Elle, I love the long extended ends of these stamps, and I think it works perfectly on this card, as it looks as though the feather has written the scripty sentiment :D I had so much fun colouring in these images with my ProMarkers, but I also have ideas for heat embossing and watercolouring, or perhaps even paper piecing too :D Hope you liked the video :D :D :D

Fuzzy Lemon Fancy Heart :D


A pair of lovely bright cards using this gorgeous new Fancy Heart die from the Fuzzy Lemon range exclusive to CraftStash :D :D :D This stunning die will be available to buy tomorrow, and it is such a gorgeous versatile die too :D I love how you can put it behind a frame and completely change the effect!! It turns and feminine heart shape into a more masculine shape :D :D :D In this video I cut the die from Funky Foam, and used it as a stamp :D On the portrait card, I stamped in water to give a ghosting effect on the ink sprayed background, and on the square card, I stamped in multiple colours of Gilding Polish to give a nice subtle shimmery pattern to the background :D Hope you liked the video!! Plus scroll down a bit further, and there's an extra video I did a while ago too :D :D :D
