Vintage Vogue

I know i've been missing in action for while now, but i've been working in the background on alot things, which should all soon become obvious, until then, here is a little something i was working on this morning
(was sulking as i had to cancel my trip to the NEC today!)
This is a sneak preview of things to come. New stamp set called Vintage Vogue, which i have absolutely fallen in love with! Im' absolutely loving the vintage and grunge looks at moment, so hopefully you will see more of that sort of thing... so please bear with me... i havent forgotten all of you, i have just been so busy.

Craft Club Tuesday ....

 Hi all, Hope you like the look of the blog? needed a bit of a face lift i thought? was getting bit bored with the original colours, so hope you like the new look?
Well, it was craft group on Tuesday, and we were using medallion peel-offs (must admit i very rarely use peel offs now.... but these were pretty!)
This was the first one i made, which are peeled and stuck onto acetate, then cut out and layered for this look, was quite pleased with the medallion, but not sure on the design of the card? needs something else, but not sure? maybe ribbon???

This is a closer look at the medallion (in case you wanted to look closer that is?)

and here is the other one i made, like the layout, not keen on the extra little peel off bits i added tho? The card actually looks red, but was pink to match the paper, but it dont look it does it?

Mother's Day... not long now!

With Mother's Day less than 2 weeks away, this was the card i made for my mum and was monthly creation for the Sugar and Spice Design Team for February.
I used several different stamp sets and products to make this card:
All lined up stamps, funky flowers stamps, punches and glimmer mist and some ribbon
and gems from stash.

Above & Below - Close up of the flowers i made from Punches, which i then stamped with the Funky Flowers stamps, and finished off with Leaves punch, (did you know there is the cutest little ladybird in this punch!)

this is a close up of the flower, which when id stamped it, and used inks to colour around the edges, i used glimmer mists to give them that gorgeous shine. Finished off with little pearls for the centre.
