Elizabeth Bell Apple Blossom

Hi everyone! I've had a really busy day, but have found some time to upload this card that I made using Whimsy Stamps, Elizabeth Bell Apple Blossom stamps. I adore these designs and this was my second attempt at colouring using Tim Holtz distress markers and I have to say that I kind of get on with them well. I really like how you can blend the colours like a watercolour.
The papers were from the Fairy Belle 6 x 6" paper stack and the roses and flowers were purchased from Wild Orchid Crafts. I was so impressed with a recent of order placed with them and the quality of the flowers are exceptional!
The die cut is the mini fanciful flourish die and the leaves were punched out of some green card. I also used a Spellbinders die called Fancy Framed Tags Two for the top right hand corner and added a piece of bakers twine.
Thank you for taking the time to look. Toodle pips!

First Upload In A While.......

I have been a really bad blogger as of late! My excuses are that I've had a couple of holidays and been really busy with work, but I've been thinking none stop about crafting and recently visited the show at the NEC, which was fab! Bought lots of new goodies, which hopefully I will be able to showcase in the near future...
Here's a recent Christmas card that I made with a snowflake theme. I used Cardio Majestix Winter Flurry stamps to create the background and layered this onto silver card. The snowflakes were cut out using my Cricut and then the piece of white card layered on top was hand sewn with a mixture of silver beads.
I then added a silver ribbon with snowflake charm and a "Merry Christmas" sentiment in the middle.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and toodle pips for now! Hopefully won't be as long for my next post.
