A Walk Through The Flowers

Hello there on this cold and frosty morning,

I'd like to share with you a couple more of the samples that I've made for Crafty Individuals.  You may be familiar with these two already if you follow the Crafty Individuals blog as Jean shared them on there a few days ago:

Featuring: CI-411, CI-449, CI-454

Featuring: CI-417, CI-415, CI-464

I used Distress and Distress Oxides to create the backgrounds and Derwent Inktense pencils to colour the flowers.  These stamps are so beautiful and they were an absolute joy to use.  

I hope that you're enjoying the samples as I really enjoyed making them.

Until next time, stay warm and safe, and be happy x

'Winter Trees and Flowers' at Stamping Sensations

Hello there my crafty friends.

It's time for a new challenge over at 'Stamping Sensations' and I can't believe that this is the last one of the year.  This year has flown by so quickly and I've really enjoyed being part of the team, and I'm really looking forward too, to seeing lots of new crafty creations in the year ahead, both from my lovely teamies and from you crafty lot too :)

Our theme this month is 'Winter Trees and Flora' and here's the card that I've made:


As I absolutely love to use white ink on Kraft card, I thought that's what I would do to make this card.  I started by creating the fallen snow using white ink and a mountain stencil and then I went on to stamp my moon and then to use a circular stencil to give it it's shape.  Next, it was time to add my Winter trees and the Deer.  Once everything was in place, I used a white pen to highlight the snow on the trees.  Finally, I heat embossed the Winter sentiment using with white embossing powder and then I dusted around the edges with the white ink and added a few snowflakes.

All of the stamps and stencils that I've used today are by Inkylicious and the inks that I've used are: Colour Box: Frost White and Distress: Ground Espresso.

We are generously sponsored this month by 'Stix 2' and we really hope that you'll be able to join us.


Stamping Sensations is a stamping challenge, so we must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork, this means: Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

All the details of our challenge rules can be found here

Please note:  If we don't comment on your entry it will be because it doesn't follow our theme to qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third part hosts such as Instagram, Flickr or Facebook etc.  We really don't want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who follow the rules.

That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x
