Precious Baby Set


Easel Card

These two projects above were made using Beccy Muir's Precious Baby digital set. It is a great set that comes with many images and sentiments. In my creations I have combined some of the images to for one image, which is so easy to do with digital images.You can mind more inspiration on Beccy's Place blog.  You will really like this Precious Baby set.

The canvas took a bit of time to complete as there are lots of different elements to it. The main image was printed onto white card and coloured with inktense pencils. I die cut the frame around the image and hand-stitched around it with two colours of crochet threads. The flower was die cut and machine and hand-embroidered. The canvas was coloured, stencilled and stamped with various mediums.
Hope you like it.

The easel card was much easier to make. I combined two different images from the 'Precious Baby' set to create the main image. It was coloured with pencils and the frame around it was hand-drawn and coloured. I added a die cut  and button to finish it. 

Do hope you will visit Beccy's blog to see what the rest of the design team have created.

Superb Fairy Wren

Time to show you what I made with Beccy Muir's latest digital stamp set called 'Superb Fairy Wren'. The set contains images of the bird and sentiments.  It is a beautiful set and I really enjoyed working with it. You can find more inspiration from the rest of the  design team on Beccy's Place blog.

My first card started with colouring a piece of white card with blue pearlescent ink. Then using a flower stencil to add the flowers on top with a bronze pearlescent ink. Then used a script stencil to add more detail. I printed the black and white bird image and sentiment onto white card and coloured it with pencils and touches of glitter.

In the second card I used the same flower stencil for the background. The main image and sentiment were printed onto white card and coloured with pencils. I used a die to cut out the green frame and the main image. 

Thank you for visiting and have a great day.

The birthday card I made with one of my newest stamps I bought over Christmas but only just getting around to using it. The background was done using Brusho Cystals and some colouring was done with pencils. 
Have a great day.

Time for another new release by Beccy Muir. This time I am sharing the cards I made with the lovely photopolymer stamp set called 'Celebrations'. It is such a useful set and they stamp really well. You can find this set and many others in Beccy's Place Shop.

The first two cards are quiet simple. The images were stamped and coloured with watercolours. The background in the second card was handmade with gelatoes and embossing folder. The third card was made using a tutorial I found online and plan to make a few more of these cards. 

Hope you like them and if you have any questions please ask.

Wedding card

Sharing a wedding card I  made yesterday. The main image is a stamp from Lili of the Valley, which I have had for years. Coloured the image with watercolours  and glitter pens. The dies used are all Sue Wilson ones. The sparkle background was made using Imaginations  crafts Starlight paint. The pattern paper is from  a DCWV  paper pad, which I have had for over 9 years.
Sorry for the poor photos. 

Just wanted to say my heart goes out to all those who were caught up in the terrible incident in London.

Little Cottage

Lets start with the base layer of this canvas. I used three shades of brown paint and blended them together. Then used a stencil and pearl paint to create the rays. The 'Little Cottage image and sentiment were printed onto white card. The house was then coloured using inktense and coloursoft penicls. The windows and flowers had glossy accents added to them.

One layer card

After the dreadful weather we had yesterday it's so nice to get some wonderful sunshine. Made this one layer card for a friends birthday. It's so hard to keep cards under 20g for postage. 
Made a circle stencil by die cutting a circle and then used distress inks and a flat soft brush to apply the ink to the circle. I wanted a bit of texture  which I got from the brush. Then stamped the various images and sentiment onto the card front. The stamps were free with a magazine. 

This is my baby in the garden a few minutes ago. Since her attack by that bad cat, she only goes out when one of us is with her. She is sitting on her dried cat mint plant which is showing signs of life. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
