Bird Canvas

Hello all. Today's post here and over on Chocolate Baroque Design Teams blog marks the end of me being the guest designer for January. I have really enjoyed it and loved playing with the Punky Hearts and Fluttering Hearts stamp sets. Today I have a mini canvas that I created using stamps from both sets. The main bird image was stamped into Iridescent Paste and coloured with Promarkers. The heart strings have been highlighted with glitter and Glossy Accents, the "grass" was created from green jute and a few seed beads and the border has been made from string and gold Perfect Pearl paint pen.

Many thanks for popping by and I will be back very soon with more makes.....

CD Plaque

Hi, thanks for stopping by. Today my second post as a guest designer is over on the Chocolate Baroque design team blog, that I created using the Punky Hearts and Fluttering Hearts stamp sets. I have absolutley loved playing with both of these stamp sets so for my own post today I decided to use the Fluttering Heart set to make this little CD plaque. I cut a piece of card to cover the old CD and then  stamped the border with sepia Versa Fine and then coloured the whole area with blue Distress ink. The little hearts were coloured with Promarkers and then glittered with crystal Stickles. The flower, heart and butterfly are part of two different stamps but I picked out these elements from the two images to use in there own right. I coloured them all with Promarkers and added a few splodges of crystal Stickles. To save faffing with the butterfly's antenna I decided to be brutal and cut them off, but replace them with some beaded wire. I edged the disc with a black Promarker and mounted the disc in a die cut stand.
Thanks for looking and I will be back soon with another post along with my last guest post for Chocolate Baroque design team.

Chocolate Baroque Door Hanger

Hello and thanks for stopping by. If you have arrived here via the Chocolate Baroque Design Team blog then I hope you liked my very first guest design team post. I was so excited to be invited as January's guest designer and could not wait to get started with these fantastic stamps.
My little blog has been a bit neglected over the past couple of years but I am hoping to turn that around this year and make it a proper showcase for my crafty creations, so I would be most grateful for your return visit.
 The two stamp sets that Chocolate Baroque sent me for the January blog posts were Punky Hearts and Fluttering Hearts and have used stamps from both sets to create this resist technique, door hanger.
I started by covering the wooden door hanger with Peacock Feathers Distress Stain and then stamped and embossed the heart stamps with white embossing powder. I added some Teal and Cranberry Tinka Billa inks and then wiped the excess from the embossed images. I stamped and embossed the butterfly and heart image using black detail embossing powder and painted with cranberry, teal and orange Tinka Billa inks. After cutting out and mounting onto the hanger with Pinflair Glue Gel I finished the design off with some beads attached to a strip of chipboard using eyelets and jump-rings.
Many thanks for looking and any comments would be most welcome. I hope to be back soon with more Chocolate Baroque makes.

Christmas Round-up........late I know!

Happy New Year blogger Peeps. I thought I would just do a quick post to show what I made as my Christmas card selection this year. I know it is a tad late and the shear lack of posts in the past year or two has been underwhelming to say the least, but I hope to rectify the problem this year. Well we can start off with good intentions can't we..........
