Diamond Wedding Card

I was asked to make a Diamond Wedding Card, this is what i made.
This is using the Bookatrix Board by The Glitter girls and I used Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion stamp from Simply Sweet set of stamps and painted it with her paints and a touch of Tim Holtz Adirondack Mixative Gold Alcohol Ink for some of the foliage, i didnt paint in the flowers instead i quilled tiny white roses and attached using pva glue to the painted image. I scored and cout out the bookmark and side panel and sprayed with  Spray & Sparkle Multicolour spray,on Lilac Centura pearl card, all from Crafters Companion.

Officially Approved Demonstrators for
After and extensive and amazing weekend with Sara,Leann,Claire, Michelle & Meg and a we had to be assessed!!! Arrrgghhh!! to see if we were good enough, i think we all went grey over night, not that we cant do it but we were doing it in front of Sara, Leann & Claire!!
We were personally invited to go for a weekend at Aston Hotel in Darlington, the food was amazing!! The room was wonderful!! It was a very packed weekend being taught the business end of the company rather than, being on the design team, the craft side of it.
Then on the Monday afternoon we had a workshop with the wonderfully talented
Sheena Douglass! Learning all the ropes with her products too!
Anyway I passed !!
And met some truly wonderful people that i felt like i had known for years and will never look at chocolate cake again with out think of Meg and a big jug of Custard!!
Please keep an eye out for where i will be demonstrating!! Could be near you, im the South East area.

Brand new collection of
Adorables by Jayne Nestorenko!

This card was made using my new Ecraft, which is Solely distributed in the UK by Crafters Companion, the card base, the tag, the flowers the sentiment all cut out on the New Ecraft. For the image i used Jayne Nestorenko's new stamp from her latest collection of Adorables and I added colour using Derwent watercolour pencils.
The Ecraft cuts up to 12x12 and doesnt need a cutting mat!Also can cut from 1-50 sheets from the tray, so it would be like a printer, no more loading each sheet onto a sticky mat!

Joanna Sheen-Rachel Hale-Furry Friends cd

Here is another sample for the Rachel Hale launch,by Joanna Sheen for Furry Friends.
Here i made a simple A5 easel card, printed two of the images, one on glossy photo paper and one on vellum, as the kitties are hanging on a sheet on the washing line, so i decoupaged the glossy print onto the vellum, by cutting the legs and kitties out of the glossy paper and layered on the full vellum sheet,leaving the vellum loose, only attaching to the card by the top half, so the vellum stands away from the card.
The hearts were made using Marianne Creatables and shading slightly with Tim Holtz Distress ink pad and cut & dry foam.
The speech bubble is from the interactive sentiments page on the cd and the tartan strip is from the backing papers.
I love the subtle colours in the image which allows you to emphasize any colour you like, be it a male or female card, i chose a light pink for this, but could equally use a light blue or silver for a male card.
