Sneak peak number 3

Tomorrow is the day when Sheena launches her new stamps on Create and Craft at 11am, and 7pm. I will be watching with a cuppa tea and a digestive in hand.

Here is my last sample before tomorrow's shows. I decided to go clean and simple with this one. I have used centura pearl and silver mirror card and stamped the sentiment in archival. The wings are stamped onto acetate with Stazon, and then I covered the whole of the acetate in dries clear glue and added Glammer Dust glitter to it.

Hope you like it, and don't forget to watch Sheena tomorrow.

Thanks for dropping by

Sneak peak number 2

Morning!!!!!. Well what a difference a day makes, glorious sunshine yesterday, dull and wet today. At least when the weather is like this it's ideal for crafting.
Here is another sneak peak of Sheenas new stamps which will be launched on Friday on Create and Craft.
I have used elements from three of the stamp set (Oak Tree, Wings and Ironworks).

The tree is stamped using Walnut Stain Distress Ink, and the edges distressed with Vintage Photo. The grasses are stamped with Peeled Paint and then blended with water. Ok, I confess, they are not really grasses, but I've used the tips of the wings to create the grasses. I have when spritzed overhead image with water, and then with some Gold Pearl Glimmer Mist.
The Ironwork corners are embossed with WOW embossing powder.
Matted and layered onto Centura Pearl, and then the frame is cut from Spellbinders Grand Labels One.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all have a lovely day. Xxxx

Sneak peak number 1

Good evening.
I hope everyone is well and looking forward to Friday when Sheena is back on the telly with some new stamps. OMG they are just fab, and if work hadn't got in the way, I would have made tonnes of samples!!!!. My head was a buzz with ideas, but time just got the better of me in the end, but I will get the ideas made into cards.

My first sample is a bit different for's a tag!!!.
I have distressed the tag with Salty Ocean, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade distress ink. I have then spritzed it with water and Kiwi Perfect Pearls mist. I have then used stamps from a couple of sets of the new stamps. The wings have then been stamped and cut out(using same inks etc as the tag) and stuck on with collall 3d glue. I have gone around the edge of the tag with gold paint dabber.

Watch out for some more sneak peaks tomorrow from myself and other DT members.

Take care xx
