Pink Girly tent card

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.
Thank you for looking you can get the above products at

Tent card

Hello Friends,
Here I am again , wow doing well eh?
Today I have a tent image card to show you all, this one again has been made using Dreamees Out of the ordinary cd rom available at Everything I have used on the card is on the cd except for the flowers, they are from my stash.
I personally think this image lend itself to men but you can girl it up a bit say colour a pink tent, or even do it like a festival outing lol .

Sneaky Peek 1

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all ok, we started off today with rain and a very dull day , now it is evening time its getting quite nice out typical. lol

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.

I coloured the image with promarkers which I do love these pens so much I personally find them so easy to work with.

I edged the matt and layer papers with one of the promarkers I used in the image so it all matched nicely.
I added some of our lovely flowers I think they add a really nice touch to the card.

I hope you enjoy looking. Thank you

Peachy Perfume

Hello everyone,
I hope you are all well, I am very well and enjoying the cooler weather much better than the real heatwave we had. At least I can enjoy the days and get the work done for Dreamees without being terribly hot.
Today I have a card to show you using Dreamees Gorgeous Girls cd ( also the perfume stamp set ( I stamped the image and then paper pieced using papers from the cd , I then cut a spellbinders circle and trimmed the top and bottom off so it made a different shape , also did the same with the scalloped circle die. I then just matt and layered the papers on the base card, I then added a piece of orange ribbon and bow, added a doily from mt stash, stamped the sentiment on two little tags added to the corner, also added a metal corner to the bottom left hand corner, and embellished with some paper flowers.
I hope you like this card , you can find all the Dreamees products at
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog.

I have only just got back to normal after the big show in Warwickshire , THE GREAT BRITISH CRAFT FESTIVAL we had a brilliant time met some lovely new crafters and lots of our current customers.  We got some lovely comments on our cards and products so by doing this show we ave reached a lot more potential customers which is fantastic.

This card has been made using the backing papers from the Gorgeous Girls cd rom, and the small butterfly stamp, I really adore this stamp you can do so much with it. Both products you can get at be sure to check out the website as we have a summer sale on.

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
