Father's Day for the men in our lives

Father's Day will soon be upon us again (where is this year going!) & time to do the thing we all dread, (go on admit it!) & design a card for our menfolk. I've used 2 of the fab sea themed masks & a stamp set from Imagine Design Create which I shall be using in my workshop at IDC on Tuesday 19th June. I've used them with Distress Oxides & Stix2 products which are also available from Imagine Design Create. Let me talk you through.

Here we have an A5 white card blank. I've white embossed the shells from the stamp set & the sentiment. I've sponged over the shells with the Oxides. The foiled strips at the sides of the card come from Stix2 Transfer Foils.   

A simple gift bag to put Dad's goodies in which I've stencilled using the masks & Oxides again. I've also added a Stix2 die cut tag attached with some paper raffia.

Flowers, flowers, flowers!!

Could it be that summer is here at last? I'm getting excited as my hols are coming up soon & I'm just hoping that the weather is going to be kind as we're having a "staycation" this year. So I've been out in my garden lately too tidying up after our vicious winter & seeing what has survived so I guess that's what has filled my head with flowers. I just love these stamp sets from Imagine Design Create which I will be using in my afternoon workshop at IDC on Tuesday 19th June. Here's what I've come up with.

Here I've white embossed onto a craft paper gift bag & coloured with water colour pencils which I find give a stronger colour on craft card/paper but I haven't activated with water.

This is a 5 x 5 card & I've stamped each flower with different shades of Memento ink pads, cutting them out & after giving them a little shaping I've layered them together with 3D foam pads.  I've also stamped the background with the smaller flowers & paler shades of Memento.

Now this one was a "happy accident"! I stamped the flowers onto a background I'd made earlier (in true Blue Peter fashion!) using Versafine Onyx Black. Unfortunately me being my usual impatient self I smudged the black ink but then I thought "Do you know what? I like that!" So I smudged a bit more & got more of a grungy effect which is more me anyway. When I layered onto black card it really "popped"! What do you think?

OK enough for now here are the 2 sets I've used click on the link below all the other fab products from IDC. Bye for now!

Fabulous Summer Florals

A few more samples for my first workshop at Imagine Design Create Seaton Devon.
I just love working with these 2 stamp sets with Memento ink pads. We'll use masking techniques to create this bright summery design with no layering so no extra postage! 

Triple layer stamping. Here's a quirky technique which looks effective but is oh so simple. Monochrome effect with a pop of colour. 

Here's the 2 stamps sets I've used available at  Imagine Design Create Seaton Devon.
