Sneek Peek! Pick of the week- Toread's

Well they are nearly here! The legendary Tiny Nymphs! 
The delightful little characters called 'Toreads'
On Friday 28th September 2012 on Create & Craft tv, Ideal World 
Crafter's Companion will be launching stamps and cds.
My sneek peek is slightly different, but shows just how versatile the characters are!
I used the image flora from decoupage section and imported into my software and made into a sheet of cupcakes toppers,quite easily,to print onto a sheet of edible icing,printed with edible inks .
So all you cake fanatics can make use of the cd's also! And what an eye catching display they would make for a celebration!
Keep checking back and popping over to Crafters companion blog  News & views and join in the competition.

What ive been doing...

Ive been taking a creative break for a while, needing to revitalise my mojo, so i started to have a play with Sugarcraft again.
I did city & guild sugarcraft when my son was small and loved making sugar flowers.
Here is one of my projects, a Celiac cake made for a Sister who is celebrating her Golden Jubilee of becoming a nun.

Each rose has been made using Squires Flowers paste which i rolled out so thinly you can read through it, its then cut into petals and formed with 4 layers of petals shaded from a darker pink up to a very light pink. 
The rose is then steamed with the steam from a kettle to give the dew look on the petals.
I now have a new website, where i sell and post sugar cake toppers, not the flowers,unforunately as they would break in the post.
Please take a look.

Sheena Douglass sneek peek!

Sheena has always had a wicked sense of humour, im sure you will agree and her new stamps are indeed keeping that going!
Next week sees the launch of her
'A little bit different' stamps!

For this sample, i stamped the large stamp with black soot Tim Holtz Distress ink and heat embossed with Deep impression clear embossing powder, tinted up with tattered rose and vintage photo, then stamped another image, again heat embossing, but this time i cut the cows out and decoupaged them onto the first image. Finally for the main image i stamped the head of the cow onto the pink piece of coredinations and cut out the crown, added many layers of clear deep impressions embossing powder to make the crown look like glass! And added a gem, taken from the Beatrix potter elements range of gems,from Crafter's Companion and added to the decoupaged cow using collal glue gel.
For the newspaper effect on the backing paper i stamped, randomly with the print part of the stamp, edged with black soot and again clear heat embossed the edges.
Finally matting onto the matching pink coredinations card.and adding apiece of ribbon again from Beatrix potters elements range.

Demo at Jendenink Craftworks Fareham

Last year, i did a demo day at Jendenink Craftworks in Fareham.
It's an amazing shop, huge and i mean huge! And the staff were just lovely, lots of cups of tea from Dawn.
I was demonstrating Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion Christmas range, with others thrown in to!
If your down in Fareham area, you really must pay them a visit! 
I was too busy to have a mooch properly, which probably was just aswell, as wouldnt have room in the car to bring it all home!

Strawberry Kisses... Another sneek peek

Now this sneek peek is one of my favourite images from the stamp sets,
it screams less is more!
Didint think it needed a sentiment, as can say, Im sorry, I miss you, with Sympathy, just for you, you name it this can say it without saying a word!
I stamped the image and coloured with Spectrum Noir Pens and lightly highlighted the petals with 
pale cherry pink 135
 and then cut the image out and attached to the card, which i scored using the Crafter's Companion Ultimate pro board, with  Collal glue gel.
For the ribbon, i used Bridal white Organza ribbon from Crafter's Companion and added the matching colour of Pale Cherry Pink with the Spectrum Noir pen, which dries almost immeadiately, this means you always have a ribbon to compliment your card!
Pick of the week starts this Friday 6th January, on Create & Craft tv with Crafter's Companion
