Sitting here thinking by Clearly Besotted stamps

I have been having a little play with the adorable 'Sitting here thinking' stamp set from Clearly Besotted stamps. The stamp set comprises of 6 adorable little animals and a background scene as well as some sentiments, I used my Spectrum noir pens to colour in the images, masking the fox with a post it note on the first card before overstamping with the background.

This little scene was so much fun to colour in, the little fox is so cute! I die cut the finished image with a stitched square die then added it to card base I had covered with paper which I think came from an Echo Park pad.

I coloured and fussy cut three little critters for my next card and popped them on a inked grass background which I then stamped with a sentiment.

I got more adventurous with my colouring for the last card and popped the images in to some polaroid frames which I backed with text print paper and added them to a gingham background.
I hope you have a lovely Thursday!

Lili of the Valley is 15! New release of Rubber and Digi stamps today

Good Morning everyone, it's a day for celebrations today as Lili of the Valley is 15 today and there is a new release of rubber and digi stamps. There are 3 stamp sets being released today.

I used stamps from the Wedding set to make a card and coloured the adorable image with my Spectrum noir pens. I'm still practising with the new pens and collecting all the pens in the Colouring System range and the Triblends too.

Here is my finished card which I embellished with lots of flowers and pretty things from my stash.

I hope you have a lovely Wednesday and remember to check back on the Lili of the Valley website at 12 today for all the new release images!

Lili of the valley release on the 15th of May

Good Morning, I hope you are all well. I have some sneak peeks for you today of some new stamps which are being released on the 15th of May to celebrate Lili of the Valley's 15th Birthday.
There will be some new cute animal and wedding images and some very useful flower pot birthday stamps and sentiments

I couldn't wait to colour in this adorable little mouse with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I have been practising with them this week! 

Here is my finished card I made using old papers from my stash and some pretty embellishments. I love the way the pens work so well with the blender pen.

I made this card using some of the scraps from the first card and an image I coloured when I was practising with the pens, I'm going to be spending more time at my desk this week with my new pens! 

Not many gaps to fill in now, can't wait to complete my collection!

Crafters companion and Spectrum Noir Design Team news!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and looking forward to the Weekend. I certainly am, I only wish the Sun would come back, it's been so cold and rainy here. As my blog post suggests, I have some exciting news to share! I have been chosen to join the Crafter's Companion and Spectrum Noir Design teams! I am so thrilled to have been given this amazing opportunity and cannot wait to get started. 

I have been having a play with all the goodies from the latest Crafter's Inpsiration magazine over the past few days and have made two cards with the products from the Magazine.

I used the beautiful rose die and stamps for the first card, I love the die, it has a lovely vintage feel and would be perfect for wedding cards and invitations. I used lots of different grey inks to create a background paper using the stamp and made a frame which I inked and added on top before popping the die cuts on the corners.

I used a stamp from the Magazine coloured with Spectrum noirs for my second card and embossed a panel made from strips of scrap card using the embossing folder from the Magazine.

I then added with lots of sequins in coordinating colours and layered the panel on to black card adding a sentiment also framed in black.
You can find the latest issue of Crafter's Inspiration on the Crafter's Companion website  it's packed full of lovely projects from the Crafter's Companion Design team.
I hope you have a lovely Friday!
