Morning my crafting friends, good to have you with me again today, I hope you are all safe and well with all the high winds we are having? Ang I can just imagine you chasing that board lol! Pamellia, lovely dream, sounds very inviting but not sure about the Sherry lol! I do have a mixed media all waiting to be shown but waiting on the right theme lol! As soon as I can I shall do another one for you my friend.

Now its only 1 more day till our Sheena is on our TV screen again, 9am tomorrow morning on Create and Craft, she will be showcasing her wonder Perfect Partners stamps and dies of these wonderful Country Cottage flowers. I made all these flowers from the sets using just copy paper, you can cut 4 layers at one time, possibly more depending on your machine, so it was very quick to make a batch up all at once and keep in a bag to use later, they are very quick to make, a little messy but who does not like a bit of mess!!!

I have two cards for you today:

My first one is showing the beautiful Fushias again in the more natural colour we tend to find them. For this card I used Sheena's script stamp  'Simply Scripty' for the background, stamping it with Tim Holtz Brushed Cordroy Distress Ink and inking round the edge of the card with the same colour. I then ran it through an embossing folder 'Twisted Vine Frame' to add some texture to the background.

I wrapped a piece of lace ribbon around the bottom and some seam binding ribbon down the side adding a triple bow.

The Fushia's that I had painted with Aqua Markers were then placed coming down the card as seen. I stamped the word 'Fushia' onto a piece of card coloured the same way as the background and placed this over the top of the leaves as seen.

To finish this card I matted and layered it up onto Black card then onto the base card.

For this card I coloured the background with Tim Holtz Distress Inks Stormy Sky and Peeled Paint then stenciled through the branches of a tree using Sheena's 'Shady Meadow' stencil and Distress Ink Black Soot, I apologize for the lack of colour on this one as the leaves are Black and the card it was mounted on was also Black card even though it looks Brown in the photo!!! I then embossed it with Sheena's stencil 'The Grunge Tree' and inked that with Distress Ink Brushed Cordroy very lightly, just enough to show the detail. 

The two Butterflies I painted pieces of Black card with Pebeo Iridescent paints then stamped over the top using the Butterfly stamp and Black Stazon ink. I then die cut two of the Butterfly wings one out of Black card the other White card, the black card wing I covered with Dovecraft Glitter Glue Crystal, this is an iridescent colour glue which turned Green once on the card. The White card I covered with Gold Gilding Wax. These were placed on the card as seen.

I layered this up with Black card that I had stamped the word Butterfly using a White stamping ink, Ranger Pigment Ink Pad Glacier White, around each of the corners where my focal card would sit. I matted this onto the base card and there you have the finished card.

These are such easy dies and stamps to work with, I do hope you can tune into the shows to view all the stunning creations from the rest of the Design Team and to see Sheena in action.

Thank you for looking, have a wonderful Sunday.

Love Jacquie xxx

    Two wonderful works of art but the fuchsia is my favourite as I have a real soft spot for them.
    Didn't bother putting the A Frame out today as I had no inclination to play Duncan Norville with it again lol!
    Best wishes.
