Dreamees meets Tattered Lace POTW

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all well, I wont say enjoying the weather because its only been nice weather for ducks here with all this rain again. I hope it is a bit better where you are.
I have been very busy again making more card samples, cutting stamps etc for our next Create and Craft show on the 13th June.

Today I have a card to show you using Dreamees Shoes and Handbag stamp set available here also using the Tattered Lace Elegance Collection Vol 2 wow these dies  are so beautiful, I just want to use them on everything, so pretty and delicate. You can find Tattered Lace dies here  at the minute the dies I have used are only available from Create and Craft the link is -

I have used an 8x8 scalloped white card blank, inked the edges with a gathered twigs distress ink pad, I then matt and layered a patterned pink paper from our Forever Florals cd which at the minute is available from here then matt and layered a white piece of card edged with gathered twigs distress ink pad again and a diamond piece of printed paper again from Forever Florals double cd rom.
I then cut an oval die from the Kedleston collection of the Tattered Lace dies, stamped the Dresser stamp, available here onto the oval, coloured the image in with promarkers in different shades of brown, and pink for the flowers. Then I cut a piece of the pink paper again to use the Kedleston border die matching it up was so easy as I wanted it the length of the card to fit down the left hand side on top of the inked white piece. I then added pearls onto the border where the circles overlapped.  I added a piece of pink striped ribbon across the card and added a bow to the right hand side of the card a pearl in the centre too..I then cut a Hardwick corner die from the same collection inked it again with gathered twigs just pulled the petals of the flower up added a Dreamees pearl to  the centre, placed this on the  bottom right hand corner of my card, also cut a Doily Flourish from the dies we have had a while this is so gorgeous too added this to the top right of the card again added a Dreamees pearl to the centre.
I then added my coloured topper onto the middle of the card, printed and cut some flowers from the Forever Florals cd , layered these up to make an arrangement on the left, also added a swirl rose to the centre of each one. I then cut a circle  from the Hardwick die placed that onto the right hand side of my image, printed a sentiment off the cd added this on top of the die cut to finish the card.

I must also add we have had the new blush E-Bosser this week, it is an amazing machine and it cuts everything we love it.

Thank you for visiting my blog please come back soon.
Thank you for your support.

Lots of Love

Hello Everyone,

First of all I must apologize for it being a while since I have blogged any cards, since our last show on Create and Craft on the 9th May it has been non stop work, we don't know how we have got it all done, but we have he he.

Tomorrow sees us on Create and Craft at 10 am with the lovely Martyn Parker, we have 3 new stamp sets which are on their web site now here is the link you get to choose from Dainty Doodles, creative corners or beautiful blossoms, or you could treat yourself to them all, they all work perfectly together.
We also have the Forever Florals cd back at a great price so make sure you don't miss out this time.

Also today I have a sneak peek for you at a sample  I have made for the show, I do hope you like it.
I have used Perfect Projects cd  for the papers, Dainty Doodles, Beautiful Blossoms and Creative Corners stamps, which shows you perfectly them all working together, Gathered Twigs distress ink pad,our new  pearl collection  which are on the show. The swirls and butterfly I have embossed in cosmic shimmer Ivory embossing powder. I stamped one of the creative corner stamps to make a doily then distressed the edges. I have matt and layered the different pieces of card and paper  to add a bit of dimension to the base card, poked the doily just in between the layers. I then stamped and heat  embossed  3 of the swirls cutting them out leaving a narrow border arranged them in the bottom left hand corner, I then stamped 2 of each size of  flower in the Beautiful Blossoms stamps in gathered twig ink pad distressed the edges and layered them offset from big to small to make a lovely flower added a pearl to the centre. I then stamped the butterfly with versamark inkpad and heat embossed again with Ivory cosmic shimmer embossing powder, added three pearls down the body of the butterfly and attached to the doily in the top right hand corner of the card. I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment Lots of Love and matt and layered onto brown card added this to the card to finish.

I am also adding a picture from our last show the presenter Nigel May the director and producers  too.

Hello Everyone,

First of all I must apologize for my lack of postings just lately, to say it has been a bit manic here is an understatement. I think we are just about back on top of things now.

I must also thank you all for making our last show on Create and Craft a fantastic one we really enjoyed it back in April and that is why we have been so very busy which is fantastic that you all love our products. We are almost ready now for our next shows  which are  on Friday at 11am and 6pm. We hope you can join us.

I am showing you a sneak peek of what to expect on the shows, we have  new stamp sets and some returning ones too so be sure to watch and dont miss out lol.

This card is featuring one of the new recipe stamps, and our new laser embellishments, they are so lovely to use , I have also added some of our letter stamps onto this card which will be back on the 6 pm show.

I have used colours green and pink for this card, the papers are from the Templates and More cd which is available here also I have used the Essential Flowers stamp set, which is as it says in the title essential you can do so much with these they are a must.

Thats it for now hope you can join us on Friday to see more.
