Blog Catch-up and CraftStash Offers

Good Morning

Firstly a little catch-up to explain my abscene.  As I mentioned previously my freelance work has increased which is good news by it does mean my time to write blog posts and be creative has decreased.  I am also in the process of changing the furniture in my craft room so things a little disorganised on that front but once this is sorted it should at least take me less time to find the things I need to create projects. I'm still hoping to get back to my three blog posts a week on here but for the time being I'm going to take a short break to allow myself to catch-up and, if possible, get ahead of myself!



In the meantime I wanted to share that CraftStash are offering FREE DELIVERY and double loyalty points for today only!  You can see my small crafty haul from CraftStash in this video.

Blue Burlesque

Good Morning Crafters

Today's creation is a card for the Crafty Army with Carley Facebook group.  The brief was to use the feather and to make a shaped card.




The feather immediately made me think of this Kanban stamp.  The image is coloured with Copic Ciao Skin Tones markers and water coloured with distress markers.

I have another busy day ahead, whatever you are up to I hope you have a great day.

Creative Blessings.  x

ATC Swap Letter B

Good Morning Crafters

I hope you had a pleasant week and enjoyable weekend.  Mr W was on holiday from work last week so we were out and about enjoying ourselves and also doing a spot of gardening and DIY which included collecting some furniture we found on Gumtree for my craftroom - now I have to organise my stash which may take some time!



Today I am sharing 3 ATCs made for a swap on Facebook, this time the letter was B.  Once again I made all three cards connect.  I created the scene on one long piece of card and then cut it into three.



Craft Supplies used;
Stamps from Creative Stamping magazine
Distress Markers and water brush
Wall stencil - That's Crafty!
Noor! Design (Joy! dies)
Old dictionary - Cancer Research charity shop find

Crystal Art Stamps

Good Morning Peeps!

As many of you know I am part of the Crystal Art Design Team which normally means crystallising canvases and cards but the next launch is Crystal Art Stamps and self-adhesive gems.  I was lucky enough to be able to have a play with one of the sets (Mandala Magic) and here are the cards I designed.


Inspired by Henna tattoos


Inspired by lace doilies.
Using coloured card to compliment the gems.
Distress Oxide background
It doubles up nicely as a snowflake too with some red self adhesive pearls, and ribbon from my stash.

These will be the one day special on Hochanda at 6pm this evening. 

Creative Blessings.  x
