Chocolate Box Toadstool

Chocolate Box Toadstool.

Hi Everyone!

Happy Sunday to you all, hope you have had a lovely crafty weekend!

Yesterday I drove all the way up to Turriff in Aberdeenshire to a fabulous wee craft shop called Madhatters, where I did a Demonstration for Indigoblu.   It was worth the 6 hours driving and 320 odd miles round trip!

Wendy the shop owner was brilliant and kept all the ladies going with cups of tea, then we had a lovely wee buffet lunch (I even got a wee doggy bag to take with me for my drive home)!    So a special thank you to Wendy for your hospitality and fabulous wee craft shop.

I bought a couple of these toadstools, they have the best selection of decopatch shapes, boxes & things I have ever seen and just had to bring these home with me… so guess what today’s project was 😉

I used the following Indigoblu Products to transform this wee cutie!

  • Indigoblu Flitterglu, Phat Foam & Scoochie.
  • Indigoblu Chocolate Box Megaflake
  • Indigoblu Snow White Metallic Cottage Acrylic Paint
  • Indigoblu “Enjoy Life” Stamp Set .. using the “With Love” Stamp
  • Stazon Ganache Ink
  • Stitched Tag Die

Here is the wee toadstool transformed into something rather special, I love this and will be making another one very soon which will travel with me to Indigoblu Demonstrations around Scotland.

I will be back on Wednesday over on the Indigoblu Blog with a lovely project made with one of the brand new stamp releases

Bokeh Effect

Hi Everyone…

Sharing a card that I made for CHA with you today… it features the Dramatic Eye stamp from Indigoblu /Limor Webber..

Dramatic-Eye-A6-insert-front-IND0135-180-x-120

The finished card is highlighted with the bokeh effect, which seems to be rather popular at the moment, it is achieved by creating a template with circles, placing this on the card, then applying an opaque white ink over top with a sponge dauber… I do love the look.

I also used Indigoblu acrylic paints to create a brayered effect background, and added some script stamping to give it a nice wee background.

I also used some recollections textured cardstock that I had bought to make christmas cards, (and never got used lol) which sets it quite nicely against the black card base and layers.

As always, thanks for popping round.. see you all on Wednesday as it’s my turn over on the Indigoblu Blog.

Sarah 🙂

 

Remember you are Loved

I hope you all had a great weekend.

It is my turn for the design team post over on the Indigoblu Blog today, so I thought I would share them over here too.    First of all I have an 8″x 8″ Card to share using the new Limor Webber Circles stamp set and the sentiment from the Becca Stamp (both available to pre-order now on the Indigoblu shop.

Dramatic Eye Canvas

Hi everyone!!

Long time no see!!  I have been absent from my blog since well before Christmas, but I am back now 🙂

Where have I been?

I have been very busy creating projects for Indigoblu, they attended CHA 2015 in Anaheim, California… very exciting indeed.. my projects were all there too, really really pleased and humbled that they were good enough to go.

Which leads me on to the blog post for today.     Indigoblu have collaborated with Limor Webber to bring a range of gorgeous mixed media stamps and stamp sets, and they are absolutely fabulous!

It is my turn back over on the Indigoblu Blog today, after the festive break and my project is using one of the new Limor Webber stamp releases, this one is called Dramatic Eye and comes in 2 sizes, I used the larger stamp in the canvas below.

and here is my project, it is a 5 x 7″ canvas, I tried to keep it monochromatic 😉

There are lots of bits n pieces used here, including Indigoblu cottage acrylic paints and alter ego flourishes

I also used the snow white metallic paint watered down in a spray bottle to create a shimmer spritz spray..

Well, that’s me for today, I will be back, with lots more things to share in the not too distant future, so as always, thank you so much for popping in

The Bird, The Box and The Bauble.

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are all well .. can you believe December is here already!

I have a few Christmas sparkles to share with you today, and to say that I won’t be around on my blog much between now and the new year, I have a lot of stuff happening.

My husband broke his leg in two places the other week, and will be off his work for the next 6 weeks, which means, my workload has increased… Hospital appointment with the consultant to see if they are going to operate/pin/plate the bones to stabilize tomorrow.

I was at the dentist on Monday… I’m on antibiotics for a week as I have an infection in my jaw from a broken crown (just my luck!) and I go to the dentist on Monday to have the root removed (not looking forward to it one bit!)

I will be busy between now and the end of December preparing samples for Indigoblu for their CHA releases, which unfortunately I can’t share.    However there will be a blog post from me every Tuesday over on the Indigoblu Blog and another card share on the challenge blog around the 19th December.

My Indigoblu Demonstrations have now finished for the year and I have one final workshop to do this Saturday over in Edinburgh for Stampers Grove,  there are still a few spaces left if you fancy joining me making Christmas shaker cards, money wallets, gift card holders and Christmas tags!

Phew!.. and did I mention in amongst all the December mayhem, I still have to make my own  Christmas cards for friends and family and do all of my Christmas gift shopping  eek!

Now onto my sparklies…
