We have also had confirmation of our first show on Create and Craft is in November. As you can imagine we are delighted that we are able to share Dreamees products and demonstrations with you all, so be sure to watch  I will let you all know the date nearer the time after we have had our screen test.

Right back to the card I am showing you today , it has been made using the Berry Wreath which I coloured in with 3 different pale blue promarkers  I also used the let it snow sentiment which is in the Let it snow Tree stamp set  I used various blue papers from our Christmas cds available from www.dreamees.org.uk

Also a bit of exciting news for Dreamees , we have just had confirmation we are to be on Create and Craft very soon with our original products so hope you will follow us on this next incredible journey.

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.
