About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Day 28 - A Sneak Peek!!

Evening!! An easy choice to share today, as tomorrow sees the launch of a fab new CD alongside the Spectrum Aqua Pick of the Week. It's another stunner from Morgan Ftizsimons, and is called A Country Life. 
Today's sneak peek is one of the gorgeous Heart Easel cards that comes on the CD. I printed it onto Sheena White Stamping card and it's teamed up with co-ordinating papers which I printed onto the back - I do hate white showing! Along with decoupaging up the rose image that comes with it,  I also used Die'sire Large Rose Quilling die and the matching Design Set paper, to create extra flowers, along with Stamen and Leaf 1. 
The leaves were cut from Core'dinations card, and embossed with Embossalicious Everyday Rose Garden folder. I edged most elements with either Bundled Sage or Spun Sugar Distress Ink, and sprayed the flowers and leaves with Pearl Diamond Spray & Sparkle. It's finished off with a few flat backed pearl embellishments.

Keep an eye out for more sneak peeks from me - and the rest of the team - and be sure to tune in for the shows:
Back tomorrow!!
