Lilac Freesias

Hello. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

Today I'm sharing a card I made with my first go at using Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium.

I started by applying Milled Lavender Distress ink onto white card and then applied Silver Sparkle Medium using a flourish stencil.
The Freesia Decoupage stamp was stamped using black Memento and coloured with Copics.
For the right side of the card I stamped and embossed the leafy flourish (from the Freesia stamp set) onto lilac Bazzill card using Versamark and Crystal embossing powder.

All in all a fairly simple card with a simple layout.

Pretty In Pink

Helloooooooooooo!!!!  See, told you I'd be back ;)

Today I thought I'd share one of the cards I made for The Glitter Pot's Spring Spectacular - I think that this one was my favourite out of all the cards that I made for the weekend!!

All products used came from The Glitter Pot.
Paper by Basic Grey (from the Knees High collection)
Stamp by Penny Black - Fashion Leader
Dies by Memory Box - Grand Oak Tree; Cityscape Nightline and Spellbinders - Grand Labels One
Punches by Martha Stewart - PATP Cherry Blossom; Monarch Butterfly
Wording by Craftwork Cards

Panel coloured using my trusty Copics. Plus if you look closely on the card and panel you will see some subtle sparkly flowers which was achieved using Imagination Crafts Diamond Sparkle Medium and their Apple Blossom stencil.

And talking of Imagination Crafts, Sue is back on QVC this Thursday 11th July at 10pm - I for one can't wait to see what lovely new products they have!!!

I'd like to enter this card into a couple of challenges - Penny Black and More July Challenge - Dies and Punches and Allsorts Challenge Week 214 - Favourite Things, with my favourite things being pretty papers, dies, punches, copics and my new favourites of Sparkle Medium and stencils!!!

Hope you like the card and I'll see if I can return again soon as I have loads to share with you :)

Blue Freesias!!!

Oops!!!!  Well I know I said I'd be back in a few days and my intentions were good at the time.  However things change around here and we all decided to have a break away in the West Country for a week, then upon my return I had to get creating again!!

Anyway I can now lift my head up from my work desk so here is a card that I made a couple of months ago using the Freesia Decoupage stamp by Imagination Crafts

I've taken it at a slight angle so that you can just make out the glimmering background which was achieved using the Flower Flourish Imagination Crafts stencil along with a pearlescent mica spray.
The Freesia stamp was stamped and embossed using Versamark and White Detail embossing powder and coloured using Weathered Wood and Chipped Sapphire Distress inkpads. Then I stamped the flowers again with black Memento, coloured them with Copics, cut them out and decoupaged them over the top.
With a bit of luck I'll be back again soon with some more cards to show!!!
