Cheers or Bottoms Up!!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning to you all

Hope you are all enjoying your long Easter Weekend, I did not get to wish you a Happy Easter yesterday, so will do that today :) the reason I was not on, well, I made my first silhouette cameo, vinyl cut and then etched my first piece of glass. WOW !!!! oh sorry cannot show you it yet, not long and I will promise.

I had a fabulous night on Easter Friday with our A Team of crafters, we had a great catch up, drank lots and ate lots of chocolate oh and of course crafted honest, you can see us here towards the end of the night.  They were making one of my first own designed on the silhouette cameo, vintage or in Polly's version shabby chic, Easter Baskets
Thank you ladies, a great night :)

Now on to my make for today.  I have been enjoying hours of fun playing and this was from another one of my colouring days
I made another female birthday card, well you can never have enough of them :)
The base layer and contrast on this one is lemon yellow, it is paired up with some gorgeous Papermania Turquoise papers, layered with MS punched edges and some gorgeous lace from Grimsby Crafts.  The ribbon is from the ribbon girl, the flowers on this one in the main are from Click it 4 Crafts, just gorgeous aren't they, see my post below for the linky to find them :)  I added a sentiment from Wild Rose Studio and some Frantage from the Hobby House, along with the Hobby House rhinestone sparkler and little star charm.

Here is the close up of the copic coloured image

Happy Easter and a New Blog for Wild Rose Studio Inspiration

Good morning to you all

as you all know by now today is my day to showcase some more of those gorgeous


products.

Inspirational blog

we would love for you to come and follow us, for not just my own creations but the whole Design Teams

Back to today I have for you

Using
Papers - Peach Blossom
I made an Easter Card
Now I don't normally do this size of card, but wanted to enter the Sketch Saturday challenge, this for me and my Wild Rose Studio papers, caused just a little thought process, to allow the 6 x 6 papers to fit, so I needed to split the page and hide the join.  I did this with two of the complimentary papers out of this stack, adding the divide with a punched border with some ribbon wrapped around it.  I added my circular image, but then mmmmmmm the star stopped me again, so I replaced this with a large daisy flower and finished off the Spring spray, before adding all of those lovely string pearls, pearl bows,  pearls and pearl flourishes.  The sentiment was drawn with my silhouette cameo sketch pens and then neatly cut out with the silhouette cameo, all I did was colour it up with my distress ink, cool, will be doing this again. The flowers on this are from here

Love at Christmas

Good morning to you all

What a lovely weekend, had plenty of time to get the housework done and to play, all with a little sunshine that does help us get in the mood for lovely creations. Today I am off to the opticians to get some new glasses, that might help me to see better on my colouring :)

So today I have a little House Mouse for you, now this does not meet the current theme of flowers and flourishes on the


but I would like to encourage you all to hop over and view the eye candy on offer for the mid week squeek!!!!!!!!!!!!

So here is my card
Just had to use my berries to match the image, I treated myself to them from Live and Love Crafts and they are gorgeous
So the base colour and contrast on this one is red with some of those gorgeous papermania papers.  I used my grand nesties for the circle layer and my holly PATP to create the corner detail and panel for the ribbon.  The little gold pearls are from the Hobby House and the ribbon on this one is from the local garden centre called Pennels, it is a wire edged ribbon so holds it shape really well and the double looped bow can be shaped for depth.

Here is the close up on that copic coloured image
So darn cute!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Best Friend and I

Good morning to you all

Wow what a gorgeous day it was yesterday, I did a bit of housework and then played.  I had popped to see my best friend on Wednesday for coffee and we ended up colouring and playing as you do, this is one of the images I needed to finish off, that I did on Thursday and I made up the card yesterday.

So I made a birthday card with my image and then as I am enjoying my crafting, it has been a while, with the old mojo running low, well anyway I sort of got carried away with the embellishments again.

 So girly, isn't it...................
 I used a base layer and contrast of lilac card from Grimsby Crafts.  The papers are the lilac Papermania ones.  I punched the first layer on the right hand side corners before layering up the other two panels.  I slipped the off the edge Joy butterfly die just under the punched edged panel.  I added lace under the centre panel on the right hand side.................. I know then I almost hid it altogether :(  I added pearl strings, heart pearl flourish, pearls, pearl medallion, charm and frantage all from the Hobby House and then the flowers were white and from Wild Orchid Crafts but I used TH distress ink Liking Lilac and airbrushed the others with my V15 copic, before placing on the cards with some silver twiddly bits and some leaves.  Oh then I added a couple of tags and finally the sentiment, which is a Wild Rose Studio new release. Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmmm did I miss anything.................oh gosh yes I did that would be the lovely ribbon and bow from Lidl. Can I just say they do sell the most amazing ribbon :)

So on to that image coloured in copics with a little antique linen distressing around the edges

Vintage Easter

Morning all

hope you have had a good week, and Happy Friday almost the weekend, which for some or us whose husbands go to fishing matches, means that tomorrow is my play day :) yipeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!

As I could not play last weekend I will be making the most of it this weekend.

Anyway enough of all that two weeks ago when he was fishing I decided that it was about time that I created my very first Silhouette Cameo own design SVG file.  I have since designing draft one which is this creation, made a few small adaptions (thank you Polly for your lovely eye and Steve for your ideas to improve, I adore truthful constructive feedback)  So here it is and would love to know what you all think.

The amendments have meant that the sides will be more rounded and the handle slightly thinner.

I have used some digital papers from FAR FAR HILL, now if you have not seen these gorgeous papers please do hop over, they are free for download and you just need to leave a comment and they are beautiful. I added some lace from Grimsby Crafts and then used my cameo and some online store files to make the flowers, I added a Hobby House rose to the centre of the large flower and some Hobby House ribbon around the top and bottom. 

Now that I know how to create my own wow I cannot wait to create again, I have so many ideas :)
