Christmas Essentials card

Hi everyone,

I am so sorry for such a long time since I posted , we have been so busy at Dreamees. Last week saw us at the NEC in Birmingham for the Hobbycrafts show over 4 days, it was a lovely show but so hectic on feet and body lol. We did meet lots of new faces too so that was lovely as well as seeing our current customers again. Everyone who visited our stand loved the cards and Hayley did demo a few days .

Now since we have got back from Birmingham we have been really busy with the website orders and getting the stock sent to Create and Craft ready for our show on Wednesday at 8 am we do hope you can watch and love our products.

We are really excited to say the least.

Today I am showing you a card I have made using Dreamees Christmas Essentials  cd rom and this is only £5 and £1 p and p so well worth buying.
I added some frontage to the recipe card too, just lately I am loving the distress ink pad Gathered Twigs , its a really rich nice brown colour to use .

Thank you for looking and hope you will be able to watch Hayley and myself on Create and Craft tv and I promise it wont be so long before I post again.

Vintage Santa

Hello everyone,

I hope you all have had a lovely weekend , we have had a rare one at home no show or workshop lol.
So this morning after doing a few household jobs I got on with this Vintage Santa card, I hope you like it . Its something a little different from me , as most of you know  I am not really an inky person but I did enjoy making this one.

I used backing papers from the out of the ordinary  cd rom, also the Santa  stamp, which I stamped onto watercolour card with gathered twigs distress ink pad and dragged the ink in with a water brush.
I also used some cardboard for a backing on this card. I also made two tags  to hang out of the sides for more interest.

Thank you for looking today I appreciate it.

Autumn Delight

Hi everyone,

I hope this post finds you all well. We have had a mixture of weather here this week, and to finish the week off its rain.

Today I have a card to show you which is not normally what I do but I did enjoy making this one. It has been made using the Autumn  stamp set, available from Dreamees  .

I used gathered twigs distress ink pad to distress white paper then used the various leaf stamps in the set to make the background. I then stamped the main tree image again in gathered twigs, also around the edge of this topper image I stamped just little bits of the top of the tree to just give a little interest.
I then matt and layered the various pieces of card added a little lace and ribbon across the card and added a bow too.
The flower embellishment in the bottom left corner has been created with the leaf stamp , and same again in the top right this is just 3 leaves and a small flower added for extra detail.

I then added a few gold gems to the tree to finish.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at this card and I would appreciate and comments.

Workshop projects

Hi Everyone,

Well here we are at the 1st October already , I really just do not know where this year is going, I suppose I will have to start Christmas shopping soon.

Last Saturday saw Dreamees at Craftstation in Kirkby in Ashfield  doing 2 - 3 hour workshops , they were both fully booked which was great, all the ladies enjoyed what they created , which makes it all worth while for us.

The ladies made everything in the picture here , in which we used stamps, and cds by Dreameees.
The Heart ornament was made using Christmas extravaganza which was something a little different for the ladies.
The tree Christmas card was made using papers from the Christmas essentials  cd and the Full Christmas tree stamp.

The third project was a little tag using the stamp Berry tree which the ladies could either use as a tag or as a topper on a card.

Thank you so much for looking, our next workshops at Craftstation is 15th March 2014.

Hello everyone
Yay its the weekend , I hope you all have a great one planned , Im going to be hopefully doing some house jobs , they really need doing, the thing is now I cant do what I used to do in a day lol so it has to be an ongoing job .
Anyway today I have a girly tent card to show you, I really enjoyed making this card its so me at the moment.
I decided on a pink spotty tent, so I stamped the image onto a backing paper from the Out of the ordinary cd , then stamped the tent again onto white card  then distressed it in blue for the sky and coloured grass with promarkers then distressed with green ink over the top , paper pieced the spotty paper over the top , which then made my topped , I used a spellbinder oval straight die and oval scallop die to mount it on.
I then matt and layered the backing papers again from the above cd added lace and crispy ribbon from my stash.
I then printed a very small camera resized in my graphics program from the cd , to add as an embellishment. I also used the sentiment from the cd then used the definitions stamp to add another saying attached with a memo pin. I then added flowers to embellish to finish the card.

Last week at Dreamees HQ we had yet another busy week, Hayley has also been designing more and the new cd and stamps should be launched this week, I am giving you a sneak peek of one of the stamps here in my post today, I hope you like it.

New Releases.

Good Evening,

First of all I must say sorry for not posting before now. It has been very busy for us at Dreamees, after Summer Crafting Hayley was ill and out of action for about a week, but thankfully she is all fine now .

We have also been busy building our stock up for the next big show  "The Great British Craft Festival"  I hope we see lots of you there. Then after all this we now have a Dreamees stockist in Hong Kong ,we are so  delighted with this too.

Right back to a few cards I have made recently, they have been made with our new release stamp range. I hope you like them.

The first one has been made using the new Dragonflies stamp ,I adore this stamp set you can do simple cards or more intricate ones. I chose a blue and green theme.

The next card has a vintage feel ,using the monarch butterfly stamp, its a large stamp but yet again so versatile , I stamped it in distress inkpad Victorian velvet then added glamour dust glitter over the top, Hayley even let me try the crinkle ribbon wow  thats amazing I love it as  you can ink it in any colour and it can be made to match your card.

The third card I used our new recipe stamp bundle ,this one I used the Recipe of a Crafter ,and went for a blue theme, which isnt really me but I must say I do love the card I also used the shell stamps to make a background which is so nice to do.

Right thats it for tonight I will blog more cards later this week. All the cards have been made using Dreamees

products and are available at

Summer Crafting Show.

Good Evening Everyone.

I hope you are all ok , at this moment in time Hayley isn't too well, I think she picked up a sickness bug from somewhere , so its been rather quiet at Dreamees HQ due to her being a bit off.

We did get to the Summer Crafting show last weekend and it was an amazing show so nice to meet old customers and lots of new ones too, thanks to everyone who visited our stand . We are now looking forward to the show next year. I also have a picture of our stand which Hayley wasn't completely happy with but the customers loved it so that's all that matters and we sold out lots of products too.

This Saturday we were going the the NMM in Birmingham Hayleys fave venue but sadly we have cancelled our stand there due to Hayley being ill so we will be there for the next one which is September.

We still have a few on the 99p cds left so be sure to grab them as once they have sold out they will not return.

I just wish this heat would go cooler for a while its far too hot for me, I am longing for something cooler lol.

Anyway have a lovely rest of the week. Enjoy the picture I am posting  too.

Elegant Flowers

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all well.

Today I have a card to show you which I have made using Dreamees Elegance Collection cd, also it is on offer at just 99p, orders below £5 will incur £1 postage, so well worth treating yourself to it NOW !

I have used backing papers from the cd, and black card from my stash. The flowers are all from the cd , not resized at all just printed out from the sheets as it is on the cd, I then cut around each flower leaving a narrow white border. I then scored down each petal and pinched the petal to give a bit of shape and layered the different sized flowers on top of each other.

I then added a little flag, round sentiment, and some pearls to finish off the card.

Have a lovely day.
