Elizabeth Bell Sponsors Crafty Bloggers Network

Frame made using Elizabeth Bell stamp and Dyelusions spray

Wow, I can’t believe it is February already, where did January go? Of course a new month means a new challenge over at Crafty Bloggers network and this month you could win 2 wonderful digital stamps by the very talented Elisabeth Bell, here is what I did with one of them:

Frame made using Elizabeth Bell stamp and Dyelusions spray

I printed the image and sprayed it with dyelusions paints before triple embossing and then cracking this once dry thus making a tile.

I made a frame and sprayed it with dyelusions sprays to match the tile. The flowers are made by stamping an Indigo Blu stamp (Bloomin Great) onto shrink plastic and colouring the underside with copics.

Birthday Flowers

Birthday flowers card

Have you ever had one of those moments when you think, “I’m really not sure if I like this or not”? Well that is how I felt when I finished this card. The greeting and doily in the middle are two of the first things I cut with my new cutting machine. I decided to cover the greeting with 3D glaze and I think that is possibly why I am unsure about it.

Supplies:

Flowers and bow from Mulberry Crafts
Co’ordinations card stock, Swiss Dots embossing folder
Anita’s 3D glaze

Metallic New Year Postcard

Metalic New Year Poscard

One of the swap groups I belong to has a postcard swap each month and January’s theme is Metallic New Year. Perfect excuse for me to get out those metalic flowers sent to us by our sponsor this month over at Crafty Bloggers Network who is Mulberry Crafts, they do some great flowers so please pop over and take a look. Although you cant really see it that well, the Laser cut chipboard clock from Gina’s designs is painted with metallic gold paint. The background was made using a mask and Stampendous frantage embossing enamel and distress ink.
