Crazy 9am show

Wow, wow, wow!!!.  What more can I say???.  So pleased everyone is loving Sheena's new stamps.  As you could see they are defiantly magical.  I bet you will all be stalking the stamp now, waiting to get your hands on them.  Can't say as I would blame you can they are fantastic.

I wanted to do a masculine card suing the stamps, which I hope I achieved.
The background is distressed using black soot, and peeled paint and walnut stain distress ink.  I then applied luminart pourables with a sponge to give a more blended and twinkling effect.  Using the corner stamp (my favourite) I stamped it four times with Versamark, and applied a distress embossing powder to create the background.  Brads were added for effect, some straw twine was wrapped around it, and the Matt and layered.  The bird and branch was stamped and coloured with Copic pens,  the berries had glossy accents applied, and then using Collal 3D glue stuck to the card.  But, underneath it I applied some small pieces of the straw twine to make a little nest.  The sentiment was embossed and matted and layered.

I hope you like the card.  Don't forget to watch Sheena at 4pm.  I believe more stamps have been arranged at the multi discount price on advanced order, so if you missed out this morning, hurry and get them ordered, because they are a bargain at that price.

Take care. Caroline xx

Sneak peak number 3

Hello again.  Well, tomorrow is the day when Sheena will be bringing you her fantastic new stamps....A Little Bit Magic.  I cannot wait to see all of the other Inkoids samples on the telly.  Luckily, I am on holiday from work this week, so I will be glued to the telly at 9am and 4pm.

Today's sneak peak is a bit different for me.  This is a glass frame that's found in a supermarket and I heard it shouting out "BUY ME", so obviously I had too.  The outside 2 corners are stamped with white Stayzon, and then using pebeo outline and paints, I have coloured the leaves and roses in.  The cream frame is stamped and then embossed with gold WOW powder.  The picture is created by doing alot of  the masking technique.  
I started off by stamping and masking the leaves at the top of the picture, then stamped Honesty, then made a mask for her, stamped the doorway after I had masked her off, then stamped the smaller bricks and then stamped the piles of leaves on the floor. PHEW!!!!!.  I then began the process of colouring the picture, using my Copic pens (yes I do love my Copics).

Anyway, you will hopefully be able to see this better tomorrow on the telly with all the other samples myself and all the other fab Inkoids have made.  Ohhh, and not forgetting the lady herself...Sheena.

Take care, and have a good evening. Caroline xx

Sneak peak number 2

Good evening.  Well, as promised here is another one of my samples using Sheena Douglass new stamp range called A Little Bit Magic.

I have made this box by painting it with emulsion, distressing the edges with Black Soot.  The brickwork was created by masking and then adding the doorway.  These were coloured by using Copic pens.  The brickwork was then glazed with Glossy Accents.
I stamped the roses and coloured them the same colour as the door.  Glossy Accents were added to these.  Then I used leaves, pearls and owl from my stash.  It's was then matted and layer using gold mirror card and a dark paper from my stash.  The ribbon was added around the edge of the lid and then a flower added to cover the join.
The sides were again made by using the gold mirror card and dark paper.  I stamped onto the paper and embossed using gold powder.

Don't forget to watch Create and Craft on Thursday at 9am and 4pm.
Thank for stopping by.

Sheena's sneak peaks

Hello my crafty friends.  Well I hope you are all ready for Thursday when Sheena is back on Create and Craft with some brand new stamps from A Little Bit Magic range. These stamps are amazing.  I cannot tell you enough how much you will love them.

My first sample is from the stamp set called Honesty.

The background has been stamped numerous times with a corner stamp off the set, and embossed with WOW powder.  I have stamped the 2 sizes of roses numerous times, as I have the leaves (which are off another of the stamp plates), and coloured with Copic pens.  Honesty is also coloured with Copics.  I have used shrink plastic to make her bouquet.  The roses and leaves are raised around the outside of the oval by using collal glue.

I hope you like her, and I will be posting a couple more samples tomorrow

Thanks for stopping by.
