Fairy New Year!

My Friday class started the New Year  on a strong note with the beautiful fairy cards that I designed using the Enchanted Forest Star Dust die from Crafters Companion.

This first card was designed with the Star Dust Fairy and some Stampendous stamps and dies. The fairy was coloured with pencils and her outfit was Antique Pink embossing powder from Stampendous. The leaves were coloured with Chameleon markers and the background was created with Palette green ink and a soft brush.




The second card was cut out and the design hand drawn. The background was stamped with the same leaf stamps as the first card but coloured with pencils. The sentiment is a Gemini die from Crafters Companion.



 On this third card I used a Martha Stewart punch to get the small flowers and another puch for the tiny butterflies. All three cards have vellum behind their wings.


See more of the Enchanted Forest series on the website. There are stamps. dies. stamp and die sets as well as some adhesive images for foiling.

Happy crafting,
Julie

Whimsy Design Team - How to colour white images with Copics



This link takes you to the blog of one of the Whimsy design team members who shows you how to colour white images with Copic markers. I am not a Copic girl but the lesson in how to colour is appropriate no matter what medium you are using.

Whimsy Stamps have started a Wednesday Workshop day that may prove to be very helpful in giving you ideas on how to use their stamps. Don't forget that if you want a stamp that I don't currently stock I can order it in for you.

Happy crafting,
Julie

Crafters Companion Winter View

Hi everyone.

I have been using the Crafters Companion stamp and die set called 'Winter View' to make and teach classes with.



This is a great set that includes 2 clear stamps, an embossing folder and metal die. I made two cards of which one is A5 size and the other a normal A6 size. The Christmas tree on the inside of the A5 card is just stamped whereas the other Christmas tree has been coloured with a mixture of pencils, markers and metallic gel pens.






I used a Cottage Cutz Die to create the Poinsettia embellishment on the second card. The brick embossing folder is brilliant. It is a large size and fits a card mat even for the A5 card. I think it looks great with normal brick colours but was pleasantly surprised how good it turned out using non traditional colours.

These sets are only $25 on the website.

Happy crafting,
Julie

New release Whimsy stamp 'Sleeping Cutie'.

This has to be one of the cutest stamps I have had the pleasure of colouring for a long time. It is from the newest release of Whimsy stamps which is available from the shop.






Lets see what I come up with to finish it. I am thinking a little glitter and perhaps some fussy cut flowers that come with this stamp.
