Brand New Fuzzy Lemon Dies

Hello Blogland!

Guess what!
It's time for a brand new release of Fuzzy Lemon dies available over at Craft Stash.


I was so excited when I opened my DT package to find the Peacock and Feather dies.
Anyone who knows me knows I have a thing for Peacocks.

Here are a few samples of what I made using them.






Aren't they just GORGEOUS!!

I have been making Samples for Craft Stash now for over 18 months (I think) and I have really come to love the dies available exclusively to them.
These dies are, in my humble opinion, really cheap BUT fantastic quality.
You get such a nice crisp clean cut every single time you use the dies, even cutting foam without losing any detail - I know because I do it often and turn the dies into stamps.
The designs of the dies are so well thought out and are really versatile that it doesn't matter whether your style is clean and simple or more multi-layered, these dies will always stand out.

Why not pop by and grab yourself a bargain, don't forget you get a fantastic 20% off your first order, you also build loyalty points which offer you discounts on future purchases.
On top of that Craft Stash offer up so many bargains - just sign up to their newsletter to keep up to date with the latest releases as well as discount codes/offers.

Brand New Releases from Craft Stash

Hello Blogland.

Oh boy am I excited to share some brand new releases from 
out today from the fabulous

These dies are so versatile and a must have for anyones die collection.
They are thin dies and you get a crisp clean cut every time.

So let me show you the dies I have been fortunate to work with.
I got the idea in my head to have the bird cage suspended (well that style of cage usually are right?) so I matted a card blank with my background paper then used a die to cut a large circle out in the center. I used the cut background paper on the inside of the card for a backdrop.
I then glued flowers in place to make a frame.
I cut the Bird Cage twice and glued together to make it nice and thick then used gilding wax in a brass tone for a gilded look.
Using 2 large bronze jump rings and poking a tiny hole in the top of the card I attached the cage to the card.
VĂ³ila.

You have no idea how much I wished I had this die a while ago!
I love the simplicity in the design of it and as you can see the die cut mirror card stock easily.
The moment I saw this die in my package I just knew what I was going to do.
Make a wedding card (believe me this is not a theme of card I make often).
I wanted to keep this nice and simple.
I cut a piece of black cardstock slightly smaller than my base card and embossed it using an embossing folder.
I cut 2 wine glasses and glued those to the embossed card, I then glued 2 bows to the stems.
I then stamped the sentiment in versamark and brushed perfect pearls over it.
matted onto mirror card and glued this to the card.
Tada.

Another nice and simple card using different technique.
I masked a border on a card base and brushed ink in different colours blending them into each other.
I then used a background stamp with versamark stamping all over. I then brushed perfect pearls to 'highlight' the design.
I cut the Happy Birthday in both black and white and offset them to give the illusion of shadow.
And that is it.
Simples.

This die threw me completely so I was grateful to have been sent an embossing folder that matched it (no link for that at this moment).
I took some green cardstock cut to size to fit the folder and run through the machine.
I lightly smudged ink to emphasize the design.
I cut the Toucan in black and glued to some white and orange card and cut around to make him stand out a bit more.
Glued him onto the embossed card and matt and layered onto matching cardstock and card base.
I added a sentiment at the last moment which I thought finished the card brilliantly.
Not bad for going out of my comfort zone.

Hope you like the samples I have made,
if so leave me some comments below and then go check out the rest of the new releases.

Watch this space for further new releases.

New Release from Julia Spiri

Hi Blogland

I am excited to be able to share with you details about Julia Spiri's Brand new Colouring Book release.


From the Author: In this coloring book you will find lots of unique, whimsical characters from a gentle world of fantasy. There are 50 different images to color. Creating a character is a long creative process. Once an idea has formed in my mind I begin sketching, until I have a clear image that I am happy with and want to paint. Once this is complete I finish the final drawing with clean lines, sometimes using traditional pencil, and sometimes digital pencil. Creating so many characters for this book was a long process, but so much fun. I hope you enjoy coloring it as much as I enjoyed creating it. 50 Different Images printed on single-sided pages



You can find her Etsy Store Here


You can follow and support her website Here


Or follow here on Facebook Here


I was fortunate to be able to colour one of the brand new images available only in the book.


The image is name is 'Whimsical' isn't it just fab!
I used a mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noirs (some of my green copic pens ran out *sob*)

I love how versatile these dies are, they lend themselves to so many different concepts of being used (You should check out the other DT samples shown on the links above, O.M.G can you spell AMAZING!) I can see these becoming some of my go to dies for sure.
