The same but different

Evening everyone
I'm just popping in quickly with a couple or three Christmas cards I've put together for our close neigbours.  CAS to the max although they are 8 x8 so there was a lot of colouring going on
All using these gorgeous Snowies  from Teddy Bo

As you see, the same but different.  I coloured them up using a mixture of copics and Spectrum Noir markers, oh and lots and lots of sparkle pen from Carfters Companion.  You NEED these in your stash girls, they are the bees knees.
A few wee snowflakes and gems finished them off
Thanks for popping by

Cats with attitude

Oh wow ladies what a treat is in store for you all tonight.
Make sure you tune into Hochanda at 8pm for a one day special from Crafters Companion, packed full of inspirational demos using some fabulous, and I do mean fabulous artwork from the very talented Marylin Roberston.
Being part of the TV design team means that of course I made a couple of cards for the show, 
 There is a CD packed with loads of pre coloured images, backing papers, sentiments etc.  Then, some beautiful a5 stamps, embossing folders and dies to die for!!  I squealed with delight when it all arrived.  There was a lot of happy dancing :)

This first one is totally digital and purely for my own enjoyment.  I do love a wee play around with my graphics programme now and again.

The other ones are all using those huge a5 stamps, backing papers from the CD and of course those gorgeous dies and embossing folders.
All coloured with Spectrum Noir markers which are also available on the website

Do try to catch one of the shows girls.  I promise you won't be disappointed.  The first one was aired at 7am but they are being repeated throughout the day,

Thanks for popping in,  Have a good old crafty day

Grateful Gloria

Hello Everyone
It's my turn to host the Art by Miran blog this morning and I've something a little different for you.  Well for me anyway, it not often I make something other than a card

This is  Grateful Gloria one of the latest girls available from Whimsy Stamps
 Isn't she sweet?

I started out with a little wooden heart which I covered with some lovely First Editon Christmas papers.   The stamp I coloured with copics and once it was dry I very gently dampened the back and rubbed as much of the paper off as possible without damaging the image.  I then decoupaged this onto the heart and added three coats of modge podge.
A little braid round the edges, a ribbon and a few glitter dots finished it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great weekend
