Tree Friends Card

Ok, last one for today. This stamp is very cute. It is Tree Friends. I have coloured it in, using the Lyra Watercolor Crayons. In the background I have used Mayhem Multi Madness double sided paper. The Bazzill used is Yam (orange) and Lemonade (yellow). Both the Happy Birthday and the Tree Friends have been inked in Coal Black Ancient Page. These images have also been edged with Lavender Colorbox Paintbox Ink. The edges of the bazzill have been inkeed in Crafter's Fresh Green.

Blossoms Card

Blossoms, have become one of my favourite stamps. This card was one of the first ones I made using this stamp. I have our Lyra Watercolor Crayons to colour in the images. Dark Brown Colorbox Chalk Ink has been used to stamp the image. Crystal Stickles has been used to add a little glitz to the centre of the blossoms. Another favourite stamp at the moment is called Journey. It is stamped on anything that has enough space. On this card it has been stamped in Warm Red Colorbox Chalk Ink. Am thinking I may use this in a 2 hour workshop, that is running around in my head. Must find sometime, to make up some samples and test them out.

Trio of Butterflies

This card was made with left over oatmeal card. Once again, I think these butterflies are really special. Two of the butterflies are inked in the Colorbox Chalk Inks - Prussian Blue and Dark Peony. The last butterfly is inked in Vivid Ink - Butterscotch. The brown strip of paper is Java Bazzill. Happy Birthday is stamped in Colorbox Chalk Ink - Olive Pastel

Blossom Eyelet Cards

This workshop shows how many cards you can make with limited paper supplies. From 1 sheet of green tea bazzill and 1 sheet of the blossom stripes paper, you make three cards. We all really loved the corset looking card. With the teddy bear on the oatmeal card, was not my customers favourite. Mainly because they could not see how the oatmeal matched the rest of the cards. One customer opted to make hers a little different. I really like the butterfly stamp.

Mini Crackled Journal - Fire Brick Red

I feel like I have been away for so long. I am back with lots to share with you. The great news, is I finally got of by big backside, and sent some projects into Kaszazz. So far, 3 out of the 4 have been accepted. As, soon as I get notification that I can share with you, I will post some photos. For now here are some photos of workshops I have been holding. The Crackled Journal, (designed by Cheryl Devlin), is just stunning, especially in the Dusty Concord (purple). However, in a hurried attempt to get all the right supplies delivered, I ordered the incorrect chipboard covers. So, we made mini versions of Cheryl's design. Hope you like what we did.
