Gardenia Flower Card - Build a Blossom by La Pashe

I thought I would showcase another of the brand new Build a Blossom flower by La Pashe this time a Gardenia flower, they are such a pleasure to make and they are made up in no time at all.
I think they make the perfect card or even popping them on top of a gift box and with 3 to each sheet you can give co-ordinating gift and card. Ooo Mothers day card and gift (just the ticket for Mums)

I used the ScorPal to add the lines at the bottom of the card and Cuttlebug embossing folder Victoria for the top, the Blossom is mounted on a Spellbinders Nestabilities die. I really must invest in a Spellbinders Grand Calibur and some Grand Labels I think it will be my next big buy.

Isn't it beautiful? each Blossom comes in 3 colours on one sheet.

Wonder- Digital Pencil Too

This is such a sweetie with her little dungaries with the patch pocket and worn patch. I love the way Mo Manning captures her characters her drawing lines just flow. I teamed the image with Bo Bunny glittery papers and a satin aqua ribbon and some wooden flowers and heart coloured with copic makers to match the colour scheme.
Colours - Copic markers
Papers - Bo Bunny
Ribbon - Satin, Papertrey Ink

Teenager Card - Paul Texting

Doesn't this make just the best teenager card? I can see this been used so many times, why is it that teenager boys cards are the worst to find a good image for.
This one Paul Texting by Mo Manning is just perfect for the job and you can purchase it here.

I'm going to have to put in a request for more in this style as it would solve many a teenage card problem.
The image is coloured with Copic markers and the background was airbrushed, teamed with Stampin Up designer papers a bit of word art and some buttons and a bit of love to bring it all together.

Please remember to say a prayer for my dear friend Katie

Look who popped in, Jack is quite the chatterbox now although your guess is as good as mine to what he is chattering about haha! this is him pulling his funny face at Granda while he takes a picture of us. he did go on to blow raspberries at Granda and I have a great chocolatey dribble picture which I will keep until he is 16 years old lol!

Coming soon.... Nice 'n' Easel decoupage sheets from La Pashe 8 sheets with stunning floral designs, they are the perfect size for your Easel cards or alternatively would make a stunning square card.

Psssst.... Something New. Sneak Peek

It's nearly here..... next week bring the launch of 8 fabulous A4 sheets of Build a Blossom by La Pashe.
As most of you will know one of my loves is producing realisic 3 dimensional flowers. Well if you love them as much as I do you just won't want to miss out on these.

Won't it be fabulous to do some floral crafting without the expense of a different punch or die for each petal, stamen or leaf and better still we have got the colours sorted out for you too.

The flowers make stunning cards and also the most amazing finishing touch to a gift box, we will even provide some gift tags on the sheet.

Not only will you be able to get the sheets from La Pashe real soon but you will also be able to get the shaping tools to use too

I will also make some video's with tips amd techniques to get the most out of the blossoms so watch out for those too.

I think if you head on over to the DT girls you will see even more sneak peeks

Project of the Month - Vintage

Its that time again and this Month's theme for the Blog Hop is Vintage and our host is Debbie and that's is where the blog hop begins.
So I chose a once upon a time approach to it and did the fairy that lived at the bottom of my Grandmothers garden.
We will hold this every third Thursday of the month , we aim to give you a little inspiration and hopefully a few Oooo's and Awe's along the way.
The Dream Team is made up with some of the most talented ladies so be sure to give them all a visit.
This Month my image is Finna and she can be purchased here

I have used Copic Markers and sakura pens to colour her, she twinkles much more than is shown in the image. I coloured some wooden hearts and my flower center with the copic markers too. I teamed the image with DCWV cotton linen paper and used lace ans a ribbon die cut flower and frames to embellish
I figured that Vintage doesn't have to be brown so I'm hoping you agree with me.

Next up on the blog hop is one of our new team members Bea so pop by and leave her a comment
Once you have done the Blog Hop why not give the Dream Team blog a visit there are many more wonderful creations on there just for you inspiration the link is on my side bar.

Some Thank You's

I just wanted to say a few thank yous to everyone who has donated to the Help for Katie fundraising that I have been doing, I know the goods that you get in return are a very big sweetener to people that donate but without your kind hearts this wouldn't be possible.

Also everyone who hopped over to Katie's blog and left her words of encouragement I know just how much it means to her and Katie writes an incredible journey of what is happening to her.

Katie has had her 2nd batch of chemo and is just coming out of the other side of this now as it left her weak and fatigued this time round and in Katie's words "very foggy"
Katie has took control of her hair loss situation and got Kevin (husband) to shave her head, which as you can imagine wouldn't have been an easy task for wither of them.

I am sharing a couple of Katie's photo's with you today.

So onto the fundraising, we have raised a great amount but i know that with your help we can do even better so please please tell everyone you know about the fundraising and lets do our utmost to help Katie and her family.
