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!

A new one day special coming up.

Apologies for the rubbish photo, but I wanted to let you know that there is a new One Day Special coming up from Crafters Companion tomorrow, featuring a new set of floral stamps by Stacey Barras.

Kick off will be at 6pm on Hochanda, and myself and the other Inkoids have made a whole bunch of cards featuring these stamps and using aquablend pencils.

So for my card, you will see that I have stamped one of the flowers three times and cut out the petals  to decoupage it. Everything that you can see is coloured with Aquablend Pencils - even the backing paper.  :-)

For the backing paper I stamped lots of small flowers randomly and coloured them in. Next I took a green pencil and coloured roughly with the edges of the pencil in all the gaps. I then used a large round brush and water to smudge it, but not blend it completely, so that there is still some rough texture. Next I took one of the blue pencils and dew round dots randomly in the green area. Once again I smudged these with a small amount of water before finally dabbing on some glitter glue for a bit of sparkle.

Hopefully, although not a great picture, this might inspire you to make your own backing paper, or even decoupage  a stamp.

Thanks for stopping by today.
