A round up!

Its meeeee again with my round up of creations! I'm really spoilt for choice with all the new designs and many more coming so keep an eye out so you can be amongst the first to grab em! Also if you pick up this months Craft Stamper (Feb 10) you'll see one of Teresas stamps, The Butterfly Keeper by Hannah Lynn in there for my project on the easel post it note holder. Its a lovely stamp, one of my favs, very bold, can colour any way you like for a variety of occasions. This is a blue and turquoise one below which was inspired by one of my kids snakes lol! Well its more a piece of fluffy material stuck to a stick but they think its a snake :)

This is one from Lemon Shortbreads range and is Gift Melody. When Vera was designing these Teresa asked me what design I'd lke so I said one holding a parcel because change the colours and you can use her for xmas - versatile! She has such a pretty face Melody doesn't she? Theres some new ones coming soon which are also stunning, I absolutely love ALL of them! On top of the parcel here I used a tiny scrap of pink organza ribbon and tied it in a knot and secured with a glue dot just for a more 3d look - see not even tiny offcuts of ribbon are wasted!

This one is Christmas Melody, again versatile as you could stick a posy on there to cover the christmas candles and its an any occasion ;) I did the dress in white on this one but then I scribbled some clear sakura stardust pen on and spread it with my fnger to get rid of the scribble lines and gave the dress sparkles!

This is also one of my favs, Flapper Girl Melody, I love exploring this stamp! My DD asked for an altered candle for someone with black and white decor and she was just right for this. The lady loved it!
Flapper girl done a totally different colourway again, experiment and play with these images to your heart's content!

This is the very beautiful Wintergreen by Hannah Lynn who I've done in green, Blue, red and pink and she looks lovely in any colour you choose. I went for an afro-caribbean tone on this just to experiment and think she turned out lovely with darker skin :)

This is another of Hannahs called Glacier-Lily Fairy I was playing with my new airbrush with this to do the background :D For the bumps on the mushroom when you colour dont worry about going round them just colour over them and use an opaque pen such as sakura souffle or any opaque paint such as the 3d lacquer in the Crafts & Me shop here and then do the bumps at the end :) For smaller details that your nib is wider than such as if you use promarkers then switch to a pen like sakura stardusts or gel pens to do finer detail ;)

This is another angle showing the finish to the card. I use Glimmer Mist on most of my cards and own just 3 colours - Iridescent Gold, Pearl and Dazzling Diamonds. As you can see from above it doesn't affect the design and underlying colours until it catches the light then its wowzers sparkly! I tend to use the iridescent gold on yellow/orange/red colour group cards, pearl on pinks and pastels and dazzling diamonds which is almost clear and the one to use for a really subtle sparkle on darker colours, the blues and purples. You only need a couple of squirts, I tend to squirt it in the air and waft the card through the spray so I dont get big blobs. It really is a beautiful finish to a card and also when your bottle gets down to a quarter add more water back up to about half as theres plenty of mica left in the bottom ;)

This is a stamp by Whiff of Joy - Yes they're at Crafts & Me too! This one is Dancing Willow. I made this for my mates 40th as she's a party girl just like that lol! I actually won this stamp on a challenge blog for my pink version of Wintergreen, this was the prize and then I made this card with her and won more stamps lol! We have challenges at Crafts & Me too so if you've not played before pop over HERE and join in!

And finally Cinderella by Kraftin Kimmie, I just love love love that dress!
I'll be back soon with more - many many more!!
