Thermal Weather

Hi Everyone,

I finally found some time to colour.  The image is called Thermal Weather by Saturated Canary and is coloured with distress inks onto Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper.


I used the Quilted Dragonfly embossing folder, goodness these emboss so well that I always want to leave them white so you can see the detail.  I added the Majestic diecuts around the edges.  The image was cut out using the Fancy Squares and Little Things die set.




The flower arrangements were made up using Glistening Berries in Red, Shabby white cones, shabby white sprigs and metal leaves.




Hope you like it.

Foamiran Exploding Box

Hello Everyone,

At our recent Noor Design UK Class we made with new Foamiran and made flowers.  You can get everything you need to make your flowers, a choice of 19 Foam colours, Moulds, A huge selection of stamens ranging from Vintage Matt, Two-tone and Pearl Stamens, Flower Tools, Dies, Moulds and a variety of centres.  I will be adding a tutorial to the website shortly too :)  So where was I, oh yeah here is the exploding box with all the handmade flowers.

This is a view from the top.  The leaves were cut with the Trailing Leaves Die from Pion Design Palette Green I, all available from shop and links below.


Of course I chose Pion Design papers and the newest beautiful collection, Where the Roses Grow.  The vintage images are also by Pion Design Grandma's Attic Bouquet.

I love the butterflies that are on the Borders sheet so I decided to add more flowers to the centre panel and arrange the butterflies on accetate as though they are flying over the top.


 From this picture you can see the butterflies in more detail.

 Here's the box closed.  I used Rose Linen for the outside panels and added Lace Desiree around the top of the lid.


You can get everything you need from Noor Design UK



Hope you like it.

Pear Tree Partridge


Hello Everyone,

I was playing with white again and the fabulous LDRS Creative Embossing Folders, this one is called Picnic Quilt.  The detail is just so beautiful that I love using them on white but then don't want to cover it up.  I added the Pear  Tree Partridge Die and I coloured the Pears with pencils


Finished with some beautiful Berries, Pomegranate Aplles and vintage seam binding in traditional red/green and a few sprigs of the Tiny Gypsophilia.

Hope you like it.

Sparkle wherever you go

Hello Everyone,

I'm sharing a card that isn't winter or Christmas, must be a first me for at this time of year, lol.  I have used the LDRS Creative All Dressed Up image "Love the Weekend".  I love her as she has taken her doggie out and stopped for a cupcake, yum.  Although my 3 doggies would love a cupcake each, lol.

I used paper by Lemoncraft House of Roses.  I cut the Dotted wings and the tags from the paper also.

The image was coloured using distress inks onto Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper and diecut using the LDRS Creative Fancy Rectangles and Little Things.  The die set comes with a few dies, one of them the tags on the left that I also cut out using the House of Roses papers.


I cut the butterfly string using the Dotted wings die set love and again cut using the House of Roses papers.


Here's a close up of the stitched tags that come with the Fancy Rectangles and Little Things die set.


The little button in the centre of the large flower was cut from the Fancy Squares and Little Things die set using foamiran and heated so it shrank.



Hope you like it.
