Iris with Illustrators

Good Morning Bloggers,
Happy Saturday!!
Have you been joining in with the Crafter's Companion Birthday Celebrations..
I think ONE of my FAV new releases has to be the brand NEW Illustrator Pens - Oh My just when I thought I didn't need anymore pens lol These are fantastic to work with. Hoping for lots more practice over the coming months but the short time I did get to use them I love them..
Anyway here is a card I coloured using them...
Sheena's Iris Stamp
Illustrator Pens LG1, LG3, DG2, DP1, DP2, Blender
Leaf Vein embossing folder, Create and card Ruth dies.
Simple but effective card I think.. Love using Sheena's stamps like this..
Have a good day..

Hello Crafty Friends
Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend..
Its my turn today to share some inspiration for My Mums Craft Shop Blog,
So for my card I decided to use the adorable little Penguin With Present Stamp by Wild Rose Studio, now unfortunately this is out of stock at the moment but should be back in very soon...
How cute is this little fella? lol I will be creating more of the same design as these will be great for a set of boxed Christmas cards..
I coloured with Spectrum Noir Aqua Blend Pencils
Ebony, Fossil Grey, Papaya, Strawberry, Ruby, Currant, Pine Green
I added Liquid Pearls for the snow and Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter pen for trim on the hat.
I die the frames and image using MFT Die-namics Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames available from My Mums Craft Shop
Thanks for stopping by today..

Box of Dreams lol..

Hello Blogging Friends,

Hope you are all well. Before I get onto todays creation, I just want to apologise for the lack of blogging I've been doing lately. I know its been quite a while since I visited all your lovely blogs and I do hope to get round to visiting very soon. I've just been so busy with design team work and normal life that once everything as been done there is just not enough hours to get onto the computer.. Once we come back from our hols I'm hoping to get back into blogging during the evenings like I used to :-/

So for todays creation, I have a little gift box made using Leonie's lovely new masks and stencils. Now I have to admit these just didn't appeal to me at first as I never use stencils or masks but once I sat down with them, I was surprised at how much fun I had playing. They are just so addictive and easy to use, to create really effective results.. From home décor projects to your card making these are just a great craft tool to have.. :-)

I created a little gift tag here to place onto my matching gift box. The background was created with some ink duster brushes and some Adirondack ink pads
Thanks for stopping by and for the comments you leave, I do enjoy reading them

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends
Have you seen the new masks and stencils from Leonie that were launched on Hochanda this week??
I was lucky enough to get a few sets to play with... :-)
Here Is a couple of cards I made using the Dream Mask, think I favourite is the yellow/orangey one
 You can really play about with these stamps/stencils/masks. Every design is unique and fun to create.. I added gems to the top card and spray and sparkle to the bottom to add some bling to the designs
