One card and some very exciting news....

Now you remember the fun I had with Pixie Dust and stencilling didn't work for me.....well I was going to throw this piece in the bin, but didn't.... I kept on working with it picking up bits of colour off my working mat that I had left......

 Then used some of my stencils inking through with distress inks to add more colour and using my favourite Doo Lally Pip stamps to create this bright fun card !!  I stamped and fussy cut out the boy and dog,  then coloured using Spectrum Noir pens. How right is that Doo Lally Pip saying !!

Now for my bit of exciting news.......

Three months ago I was asked by the lovely Enfys if I would join the Fiskarettes UK as a permanent Design Team Member !!  It was a very big yes from me and start in June !! Whoopeeeeee !!

Pixie Dust fun !!

Had great fun playing with Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Dust at AMOM card club yesterday. 
 1st technique: colour burst spritzed background plus painting on black card

The colour and shimmer is amazing  !!  I've just added some background script to the colour panel and card blank and 3d the flower.

2 technique: colour washed background and water colouring an image

This one I added some dots of colour on background, some wavy line edging and a sentiment by Stampin Up

3 technique: stencilled background and using pixie dust to "ink" a stamp

Can't see stencilled background ??  

There was a wee one of circles...........I was rather heavy handed with pixie dust and water and tried several times , but with no luck so just added more fabulous pixie dust and water !!  Did have success with my inking a stamp !!  Whoohoo.....
Tomorrow I'll show you what I did with one of my other non stencilled backgrounds......

Just Because...

I wonder how many of you send "just because" cards ???

 We all spend so much time on social media we forget to make and send a card just because !! The shame of it is,  we all love to receive something in the post other than BILLS !!

Anyhoo my "just because" card came about because my lovely friend Nicki went to Ally Pally and as well as buying herself a few crafty presents she also bought me a few fab presents "just because", how sweet was that !! One was this fantastic Heartfelt Creations stamp set called "Sugar Hollow Hangout"

 Sugar Hollow Hangout Cling Stamp Set: click to enlarge

 If you're not a fussy cutter out like I am then I recommend you buy the die set that goes with this set of stamps....the tree is a bit fiddly to cut out. Done my usual of making my ink cloud background, stamped, fussy cut and then coloured my tree, owl and swing, punched then shaped a few flowers adding pearls to centres and loads of faux stitching. Finished off with some lace, lace bow and big pearl centre !!
