Lots of New Flowers Have Arrived

After months of negotiating with a company in Thailand the first of our own, Craft Fairy, brand of paper flowers have arrived.

These three packets are just three of the nine new colours that we have in stock.

Now, I chose the colour combinations myself. Did I make good choices? You tell me in your comments.

Back at Last

I must admit that I've not blogged for quite a while as the shows have taken me away from the computer. I do miss it though and so I am getting on with creating again. This is today's effort which uses the fantastic hydrangea stamp from Time To Stamp that is made by I Brake for Stamps.

To make it:
  1. Colour the hydrangea stamp with the Art and Graphic Pens from Kuretake and stamp it twice, colouring up between stamping. Use the H2O water brush to move the paint a little and added some extra colour where the shadows should be.I cut the images out and then got on with the rest of the card.
  2. Cut a base card 10.5cm x 28cm. Score this at the 14cm point to make a card 10.5cm x 14cm when folded.
  3. Cut a piece of pink card and scored it and then cut it to fit over the join in the base card.
  4. Stamp the message, which is from the Inspirational sayings plate, on a piece of card and cut it out to leavea a small border. Mounted this on to a piece of pink card. This was then stuck to the base card.
  5. Stick the hydrangea images slightly overlapping on to the card with a mixture of adhesive and foam pade. The adhesive was for the bottom hydrangea and the foam pads for the upper image.
  6. Decorated the lower part of the card with a broken line of green, use one of the greens that used on the stamp for colour continuity.
