A Fairy House....

I love making things with tiny details so this Fairy House suited me down to the ground:


It's for a class at The Craft Barn next Saturday 26 August and uses some of the new Tim Holtz stamps and dies.
Here are some close ups of the details:

Teasels to tease...

This card uses a lovely collage stamp from Crafty Individuals coloured loosely with Distress inks and mounted on some of their background paper. The corners come from their Must Have section.


Crafty Individuals are going to be bringing out some more new stamps soon so keep an eye out on their website.

Thanks for looking!

Dandelion clocks...

Here we've got two cards using the Dandelion Make a Wish stamp from Crafty Individuals.
On each one I've stencilled over the solid area on the girl. I've used a stamp positioner to stamp her so that I could stamp in colour and then add a shadowy outline.





Thanks for looking!

Flaming Flamingos.... (and a wonky leg!)

Here are some cards I made with the Crafty Individuals Flamingos stamp and some of their papers. Before you say anything, I realised afterwards that I don't think flamingos can bend their legs that way! Oh well, he can always be a bit wonky!



This one is also the flamingo on a Distress Oxide background with the correct knee bend!


Thanks for looking!

Miaow....

Thought I'd show you my cat themed cottage, using That's Crafty stamps, stencils and die cuts:


I coloured with wax crayons for a change. I just love this cat:


My roof is actually a pair of wings that I ran through an embossing folder:

The birds and the bees...

I've got a class on Saturday 29 July (next week) at The Craft Barn and we're making this canvas:


We'll be painting the background directly onto the reverse of the canvas and then building up detail over the top and on the frame:
