Sunday Share – Stefanie Carvey

Sunday Share – Stefanie Carvey Eeeeek what with being super busy over Christmas and then having to play a massive catch up with paperwork, ready for the tax deadline, I really slacked in showing some fab customer makes from the Christmas goodies! However they are too beautiful not to share, so I will be having a series of Sunday Shares and over the next few weeks, you will get to see some of the amazing customer makes (even if some are a little out of season now hehe) Stefanie was very busy and painted up a few of our products, I […]

blood drip stencil sea scene

Playing with stencils – Seaweed

Playing with stencils – Seaweed As mentioned yesterday, I also noticed that the dripping blood stencil could double as great seaweed and make a fab underwater scene, in fact I love the underwater scene created with this stencil I could cut a proper seaweed/sea bed stencil (which I may still do), but its always great to have a stencil that can be used for more than one purpose (and you certainly couldn’t use a proper sea bed one as dripping blood!) I wonder if this stencil could be used for any other scenes or things too? These backgrounds were only […]

blood drips tinselr red embossing

Playing with stencils – Dripping Blood effect and Woodgrain!

Playing with stencils – Dripping Blood effect and Woodgrain! Good morning all, As mentioned yesterday, I said i would share my stencil experiments today First is wood grain, this is quite a big stencil, I think the effect was OK (although it looks more like a zebra!) but its not quite as i wanted! Added to that the stencil is very flimsy feeling, due to so many large cut out areas. So unfortunately although I will keep this one, the design will go on the ‘bin it’ pile and these won’t be created to sell. The next stencil is meant […]

Playing with Masks – Mountains and skies!

Playing with Masks – Mountains and skies! Its a chilly but bright lunchtime here, how is it in your part of the world?  For quite some time now, its been on my to do list, to make some stencils & Masks (and I mean proper flexi-plastic ones, not the paper/card ones I’ve made in the past, that can’t be used for wet application and can have a short lifespan!) And last night i finally found a tiny bit of time to do so! They need a few alterations to make them perfect (like being a bit longer or deeper bottoms etc) […]

Tuesday’s Tip! – Colouring Feathers

Tuesday’s Tip! – Colouring Feathers I need to get more organised in sharing things with all you lovelies out there. I take lots (and i mean lots!!) of photos throughout my working day, yet I never seem to find the time to add the photos to posts with a bit of information. I’m hoping 2017 is going to be the start of a more active/sharing new year for me and I will make a conscious effort to get more behind the scenes things shared You never know you may even find some of them interesting or helpful! I’ve decided to […]

twits personalised birthday card

Love is in the air…..

Love is in the air…..   Well, i’m chasing my tail again lol. I was behind for Christmas after having to wait to get the new laser (Big Red) delivered in the summer and so after a mad panic and rush for Christmas, I had no chance to get any Valentines bits done! So although a bit late, I’ve finally managed to design a few Valentine cards, all very different.    I’ve been sure to include some regular characters – The BFG and The Twits and some cute cards, a card for bird lovers and a card for those who adore piggies! […]
