Elegant Primula From Chocolate Baroque

Hi there, whats happened to the weather?? We've had beautiful sunshine all week and  Saturday morning arrives and its grey and drizzly. I hope its a bit better where you are, but i'd better not moan as we do need the rain. My card share today features one of the gorgeous new stamps from Elegant Spring Flowers, one of the new releases from Chocolate Baroque. 

I love this delicate primula with the beautiful script background, I  coloured with image with promarkers and added a little glitter to the centre  of the flowers, unfortunately the sparkle doesn't show up too well in the photo.

I've edged the image with pumice stone distress ink and matted on some dark blue card. To create the corners, I used the bottom die from Shapeabilities Fancy Tags 2 and trimmed the top and bottom of the die cut shape and attached them behind the image. The paper is from one of the Guild paper packs that I've hoarded for ages but I had to cut it as I thought it complemented this image beautifully. to finish off I added some blue ribbon and a little bow

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Lollipop Crafts: anything goes
Wags'n'whiskers: Flowers

Christmas in March at Crafty Ann's

Hi there, time for a new challenge over at Crafty Ann's challenge blog and this time Crafty Ann wants to see Christmas in March!! Its never too early to start making Christmas cards especially with Ann's gorgeous images and papers, or perhaps you'd rather scrapbook some of those precious photos. For my DT card I've created a digital card, printed it out twice and layered the poinsettia and the lacy border up. 

The backing paper, book plate and borders are from Crafty Ann's beautiful 'Cream Dream' collection and I've combined them with the snowflake from Traditional Christmas collection. The main image is one of Ann's scrummy metallic images. You can find them all at Crafty Ann's Digi Shop. All I added were some little pearls and I stamped the sentiment using a rubber stamp from Chocolate Baroque

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Purple Frog: anything goes
Crazy Challenge: Add a sentiment
Lollipop Crafts: anything goes

Snowdrop Easel Card

Hi there, can you tell I love snowdrops lol. I fell in love with this beautiful stamp which you can find on one of the stunning new stamp sheets available this month at Chocolate Baroque. This stamp is from the stamp sheet, Elegant Spring Flowers

This was a simple card to make, I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with promarkers adding very pale dots in the background.  The image was die cut with nesties Labels 4 and I used Bundled Sage distress ink around the edges. I accented the flowers with some glossy accents but you can't see that too well in the photo. To create the shaped easel I folded some pale green card and placed the largest die on the card so that the top overlapped the fold and cut the shape out. I cut another identical shape to mat the image and make the easel topper
. The base of the easel card features the sentiment from Elegant Spring Flowers, stamped again with Memento Tuxedo Black, die cut and distressed with Bundled Sage.  I added generous blobs of Rock Candy Crackle paint to give the sentiment a frosty crackle and popped on some clear dew drops to support the easel. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Art Impressions stamps: Monochromatic
Crop Stop: shaped cards
Fussy and Fancy : anything but a square or rectangle

Thanks for popping by today. Keep a beady eye over on the Chocolate Baroque DT blog as my talented teamies have loads of gorgeous inspiration for you over the next few days

Sparkly Snowdrops

Hi there, its not often I make a clean and simple card,  I'm definitely a more is more kind of girl lol but I thought the clean and simple beauty of this elegant snowdrop stamp, from the newly released Elegant Spring Flowers from Chocolate Baroque lent itself to a CAS design.

The image is coloured with promarkers and then I added lots of rock candy crackle paint through a Crafters Workshop Template (Mini mosaic) and left it to dry. It gives a lovely frosty sparkle in real life but its so hard to get a decent photo, hopefully you can see it better in this pic. The image is just matted on green card with some little green gems in the corners.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
2 Sisters: Spring is in the air
One Stop Craft: clean and simple
Paper Play: Spring colours
Paper Sundaes: spring blossoms
Sweet Stampin: Anything goes

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you've got some spring flowers in  your garden. Its been so warm and sunny here we've got all sorts of gorgeous flowers in the garden but nothing beats snowdrops, they are so delicate and pretty.

Bright Colours at PanPastel UK

Hi again, time for a new challenge at PanPastel UK and this week our theme is 'Bright Colours'. PanPastels will be on Create and Craft at 3pm today so I've got my place booked on the sofa to watch :-). If you fancy trying out PanPastels, check out the bargains at Your Creativity Store as Berni has a fab 10% off deal at the minute!

I had a lot of fun making this tag, I've used Magenta and Diarylide yellow for the tag and then a little black through a Crafters Workshop Template. The sentiment is from the new Artistic Expressions themeplate by Chocolate Baroque.
To make the flowers I die cut some Clearly for Art film with my tattered florals die and gave the flowers a coat of multi medium. Once this was dry I coloured the flowers with PanPastels and added some rock candy crackle paint. Once this was dry I splashed on some drops of twinkling h2o's in yellow and hot pink. Once dry I overstamped with a large crackle stamp (again from Chocolate Baroque), I heated the Clearly for Art and shaped the flower petals  and layered them up. The smaller flower has a black button in the centre. The larger flower has a flattened bottlecap filled with Ranger black enamel accents, while this was wet I scraped some more PanPastel onto the surface and left it to dry. Once it was dry i added a layer of glossy accents to seal the PanPastel. 

To finish my tag off I  used some pink and black velvet ribbon, black lace, some dots of black enamel accents and some die cut swirls.
I'm entering my tag in the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T: handmade flowers
Craft your passion: Just sentiments
Paper Pretties: New technique (the flowers)

As always our lucky winner will receive a fab prize of a PanPastel trial set from the lovely Berni at Your Creativity Store so I hope you're going to join us to be in with a chance of winning

Spring is in the air at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hi there, well Spring is in the Air here in my little corner of the UK and its also our theme over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. We have a fabby prize from the lovely Marina of Cottage Crafts, our generous sponsor and as always my talented teamies have come up with some gorgeous projects. Sorry for the dreadful pics of my DT project, my camera has given up the ghost and I'm using hubbys at the minute, unfortunately its a bit too technical for me and I can't seem to take decent photo with it. In fact they're even worse than usual lol. 

I always think of flower and the beautiful shades of yellow in our gardens when I think about spring, and of course Spring is the season for weddings.  In fact 50 years ago today, my lovely MIL and FIL were married so I decided to make a spring themed Golden Wedding card for their special anniversary. Its even more special as my FIL has been very seriously ill and a couple of weeks ago we didn't think we'd be celebrating so this is a very happy weekend for our family :-)

Anyway to make my card, I used various shades of yellow and gold h2o's on watercolour card to create the background, I splodged them on and covered it with clingfilm to dry. I'm really pleased with the effect, it looks almost like taffeta. The lace border and corners are stamps from Joanna Sheen, embossed on vellum with Gilded Ivory EP and cut out.. The focal image is an image transfer of one of the happy couple's wedding photos, popped onto canvas and framed with a crackled and pearl embossed frame. I added a venise lace heart, and some paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. To create the '50' I cut the numbers from shrink plastic and popped them in clear UTEE in my melting pot. Once they were cool, I brushed them with flitter glue and added gilding foil, you can see them a bit better in this pic.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's :Vintage/Shabby chic
Crafts and Me: spring colours
Gingersnap Creations GC141: Granny's photo album

Thanks for visiting today. pop over and check out my teamies creations if you have a minute as they have come up with some stunning projects again this time around

House and Home at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog

Hi there folks, this week seems to be flying by doesn't it? I can't believe its Thursday already but it is and that means its time for  new challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge and this time around our theme is 'House and Home'

I've used a shaped card blank from Crafty Boots and created a brick effect using a Crafters Workshop Template and distress inks. I'm really pleased with the effect of this but I'm still struggling with hubby's camera so its not a very good pic so you'll have to use your imagination a bit lol. I swiped pumice stone distress ink all over the card then added tea dye through the Crafters Workshop template, followed by a touch of vintage photo here and there. I die cut the window shape using one of the lovely new Lattice spellbinders dies. The scene in the background was stamped using stamps from Chocolate Baroque's Sunburst Scenes and Country Views and coloured with promarkers. I added a green gingham bow and some tiny paper roses around the window to finish off. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafts and Me: spring colours
Crazy 4 Challenges: use some green
Paper Pretties: new technique (brick background)
Scrapbook Sisters: Anything goes

. Its definitely starting to look like spring here in my little corner of the UK. I've got this week off work (well most of it) and for a change the weather is being kind to me so I should really drag myself out of my craftroom and tackle the weeds lol.

New stamps from Chocolate Baroque!

hi there, todays card features some of the gorgeous new stamps from Chocolate Baroque, there are some really beautiful spring flowers but for my first sample i've used stamps from the stunning Baroque Eggs theme plate.

I've used various shades of brown mica sprays to create a background and stamped the egg with versamark before embossing with a pastel pink embossing powder. I cut the egg out and matted it on some brown card stamped with the beautiful corner stamps from Butterfly Flourish and embossed with the same pink embossing powder.

To create the background I sprayed some white card with shades of pink and brown mica sprays and stamped and embossed the smallest egg from Baroque Eggs with pale pink, deep pink and brown embossing powder.. The background is again matted on some brown card and I added some pink organza ribbon for a finishing touch.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Add a flower at PanPastel UK

Look no stamps lol! Here's my DT card for our new challenge at PanPastel UK where our theme is 'Add a flower' and I haven't used a single stamp for my card. I can't remember the last time I made a card without any stamping but i got carried away making my background with PanPastels and masks and decided i didn't want to cover it up lol.

I started with a square of white card and applied Diarylide yellow, ultramarine blue and permanent green PanPastels over a layer of white PP. I used a gorgeous prima mask and applied Paynes Grey PP around the maske adding more green and a little Permanent red to pick out the foliage and flower. Next I used Tile Texture template from Crafters Workshop and applied more Paynes Grey, Blue and a little Permanent red PP here and there. I absolutely love the effect of this template, i seem to be using it on everything at the minute .

I used some gorgeous rose lace from Chocolate Baroque and added some red chiffon ribbon. To create my flower I die cut 3 flowers using some crinoline fabric and Tattered Florals and coloured with Permanent Red PanPastel. I layered them like the grungepaper roses, curling the petals as I went along and added the flower to my card. To finish off I added some faux pearls in the corners.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crazy Challenge: No designer papers
Flourishes: Lace and Scallops

As always our lovely sponsor Berni from Your Creativity Store has a fab prize up for grabs for our lucky winner! 
We've had some very exciting news this week too!! PanPastels are making their debut on Create and Craft next week, you can see them on Wednesday at 11am and then on Sunday at 3pm, what  a treat!!  . The lovely Kay from Indigo Blu will be demoing so its definitely not one to be missed!!

Spring in to Spring at Crafty Ann's

Hi there, I'm running a bit late this morning as I've pulled a muscle in my back so I'm a bit of an old crock at the minute lol. Anyway better late than never, this time around our challenge at Crafty'Ann's is 'Spring into Spring' and i've been inspired by a lovely early climbing rose in my garden. As soon as I see the flowers appearing I know spring is really here and the bad weather is over. 

I've used Crafty Ann's beautiful 'Rose Trellis' image, coloured with promarkers and matted on gold card. The bp is from Crafty Ann's Sweet Sage collection (its a real shame to cover it up as its so beautiful and has little butterflies on it). I've overstamped the paper with some  swirls from Chocolate Baroque's Artistic Expressions stampsheet and embossed with gold EP. To finish off i've added lace, ribbon and a paper rose from my stash.

Hitting the bottle

Hi there, i've had a lovely play in my craft room today. My son received a lovely pressie of a special bottle of booze for his birthday and wants me to alter it for him. I'd never tried an altered bottle before so my boy and his friends kindly emptied a bottle of Jack Daniels to practice on (yes they did let me have a little drop lol). 

(Apols again for the crap picture, I still can't work out hubby's camera lol)

I started by painting the bottle with black gesso and then a coat of black acrylic paint. I added black soot crackle paint to some parts and left it to dry. I've used train tracks from Creative Expressions gold embossed on tissue paper, and dandelion clocks from Chocolate Baroque's Punky romance Stamps, I stamped these directly on to the bottle and embossed with gold EP. Next came my favourite Crafters Workshop template, with magitac paste and gold mica powder.

To embellish I've added lots of Idea-ology bits, salvage stickers, some chain and ribbon from my stash, grungeboard swirls painted with gold acrylic paint and lastly a flower made from Clearly for Art modelling film. I vaguely followed Wendy Vecci's youtube tutorial adding crackle paint and colouring with alcohol inks before diecutting with Tattered florals. The button in the centre is recycled from some clothes my boy was throwing out. I also made a smaller flower that I popped on top of the bottle.

I'm so glad I managed to get some crafting time to make this, I spotted that this weeks challenge at Simon Say's Stamp and Show was 'Bottle it' and had to play along as this bottle was sat in my craftroom.
I'm also entering this in the following challenges:
Let's Ink It Up: show us your flowers
Paper Play: recycle it
Totally Gorjuss: anything goes with a button

Thanks for popping by, I hope you've had a lovely crafty Sunday too

Girly/Mothers Day at PanPastel UK

Hi there, i'm back with my second post already today, this time my DT project for PanPastel UK where the theme is 'Girly/Mother's day'. I'd made this beaded bracelet for my MIL and decided to alter a PanPastel box to pop it in

Sorry about the blurry pic, my camera has given up the ghost so I had to borrow hubbys and I can't seem to suss out the settings at all. 

I crackled the box using purple emulsion paint, watered down pva glue and cream emulsion and distressed the edges with vintage photo distress ink. I made the flowers using fabric from my stash, the purple pompom flowers are coloured with violet panpastel.

To make the gift tag, I stamped a Chocolate Baroque background stamp on a kraft tag with versamark ink and applied Violet PanPastel with a sofft applicator. I used my scrummy new lattice spellbinder dies to create the embellies, again using violet PanPastel to highlight the diecuts. I love this colour, its my favourite at the minute. To finish off I added a little purple ribbon.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Allsorts: Say it with flowers
Divas by Design: Favourite things (Panpastels, making flowers and kraft)
Fabulous Friday's:  kraft paper
One stop craft : Mothers day with ribbon

As always there is a fabby prize for our  winner from Marina, our generous sponsor at Cottage Crafts!

I've used a backing paper from 'Vintage Shabby' paper stack, distressed with a craft knife and a little tea dye distress ink and matted it on some blue tissue paper. I then added some texure using a Crafters Workshop template (mini mosaic) and Magi-tac paste dusted with silver mica powder. You can see the effect a bit better in this pic

The ribbon, lace, butterfly and glimmer misted doiley are all from my stash. The silver embellie over the bow is from a broken necklace. The flowers were made using more blue tissue paper, die cut with tattered florals and buttons in the centre. The metal frame for the sentiment is from my stash and I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of vellum. I also added lots of faux pearls with my viva pearl pen.

The focal image is a Kanban stamp, coloured with promarkers and coloursoft pencils and cut out. I stitched the lace up bodice with silver thread, it look me ages as the blinking thread kept getting in a HUGE knot for some reason.

A colour challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog

Hi there,  its time for a new challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog and this week our theme is to use 'Red Brown and Cream' although I've cheated a little bit and added some green leaves to my project 

I've used my favourite Poppy paint fusion stamps from Sheena Douglass and some scalloped Decor Plates from CaroLine's Rubber stamps, they are perfect for paint fusion as they are a really good weight and take the layers of paint beautifully.

I began by creating a crackle background with a layer of brown emulsion paint, once that I was dry I slapped on some watered down pva glue and a layer of cream emulsion. Once that was dry I stamped on my poppies and painted them with acrylic paint. Next came the daisies which I painted with grey and cream acrylic paint instead of my usual pale blue and white. I added the centres to the flowers and then decided to add  a few leaves at it looked a little bare. I gave the small scalloped frame (also from CaroLine's) the same background treatment and then dry brushed gold acrylic paint around the edges of the painting. The sentiment is from the new Artistic Expressions themeplate from Chocolate Baroque, stamped with versamark and embossed with gold EP.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

If you get chance pop over and check out my teamies projects, they are stunning as always :-)
