New in the Store

Hey all!  I just added some new stuff in the store :)

Emma & The Cake ( oopsy girl be careful! )


Diamond Rose + Paper Pricking Pattern



I made this card from a laser print on watercolour paper.  It's my first attempt with my new Letraset Aquamarkers :) This pink paper pricked background is actually cream card stock sponged with spun sugar distress ink before I paper pierced it.

The Diamond Rose Sets are totally customizable.  I added lots of extra configurations so if you don't like the diamond shape - Great! There is a version with no frame. Cut if out with an oval or what ever you like :)

 I have a few more designs to work on ( ahem... Nolan with a Heart - yup he's still free LOL and a wee baby bunny) and will be adding some long overdue cutting file patterns.  Workings as fast as I can ;)

Have a great weekend!

:)* Fred

One Stop Craft Challenge

Yey!  Fred She Said is sponsoring the One Stop Craft Challenge. It starts today :)



 DT Michelle & I are playing along with their DT.  The theme is "Button It!"



When I think of buttons I think of flowers :).  Still my favourite are  Fred's Foldy Flowers - the first ones I did.  There's nothing like relaxing while colouring ( with whatever! ;) ) and cutting out a sheet of flowers.  I coloured these with watercolor pencils, blending pen, Ranger Inkssentials Black Enamel, and Black Soot Distress Inkpad. I coloured up another Daisies foldy Flower and made a sun out of it. I did something out of the ordinary and assembled and attached the flowers and leaves with a GLUE GUN... fast & fun!.. but a bit stringy LOL!  Cheerful card for a dreary day.  We are in between snow systems and we should get quite the weather today along with 70 km winds... yahoo!

Have a great weekend!
