Fabric and Infusions....

Over on the PaperArtsy Blog at the moment the theme is fabric. I thought I'd make something stuffed and so created this heart shape using fabric hand dyed with Infusions;


To see how I made it (and the other side) hop on over to the PaperArtsy Blog.

It's tree time....

All these cards use the A4 set of tree stamps from Crafty Individuals.
I've not only used them to stamp the trees themselves, but also used the topmost branches to create extra bushes and foliage and  to stamp the cloudy texture in the sky:




There are endless combinations you can do with these trees - that's why I love experimenting with them so much!

Thanks for looking!

Pixie Powder...

......made by Cosmic Shimmer.
I've been having a lovely play with this  - it's a powder activated by water with a shimmer already in.
The first thing I made was a wall hanging using Crafty Individuals stamps:



The shimmer doesn't photograph very well (well, not when I do it - I'm just glad to get it in focus!!!)
but it is there, creating a lovely effect.

Thanks for looking!

Get stitching!

Here's a tag I've made with one of the new Crafty Individuals stamps, CI-452 Nature's Beauty:


I've layered up onto various scrapbook papers and added stitching on my machine, leaving lots of lovely thready bits.

Lovely trees....

Crafty Individuals have just brought out a lovely tree stamp that compliments their A4 tree sheet which I absolutely love. having a little play, I decided to make a tree scene like this:


I've taken the corner flowers from another new stamp, CI-452:


I've used the branches from the trees to stamp the texture in the sky and the leaves on the tree, very easy to do as it only involves one stamp!

Thanks for looking!
