Wee Winter Friends

My first Christmas card for 2016 is done and dusted.  Eek, eek, eekity eek!  Where’s the first half of this year gone?

I’m still on the Wee Stamps roll, this is Winter Friends from Whimsy Stamps, which I’ve paired with some new dies.  Well, when they’re on sale it would be rude not to buy them, wouldn’t it?  The snowflake doily is by Wild Rose Designs (LOVE this die!) and the super cool North Pole Air Mail die is by Cottage Cutz.  I fixed it on to a blue scalloped circle to help it stand out a bit.

Wee Cindy

I’m still on my Wee Stamps trip and today I’ve paired Wee Cindy from Whimsy Stamps up with new Pion Scent of Lavender papers and some of the delish goodies now in stock at Noor Design.

Coloured with Copic markers, I used:
Hair: E43, 41, 40
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, R20
Dress/wings/shoes/envelope/flowers: V95, 93, 91; E42, 40

The stunning lace butterfly just fitted perfect for this card, so pretty and quite dimensional too. 



bev-rochester-whimsy-wee-cindy2



The tiny bit of scalloped border peeking out is from the Magnolia Club Kit Volume 9.  That’s all sold out now but I believe there is a one or two Volume 10’s still up for grabs.  These are amazing value for money, when I saw what I got for my money it about blew my mind.

The large shabby/frilly flowers I made using the new Flowers of Joy dies (links below).  I followed Norma’s tutorial which is fantastic and easy to follow too and works perfect every time.

I finished this off with the stunning lace and pretty corner die cut.

I have one more Wee card to share, that’ll be posted here on Friday

Tilda and a bit of shabby too

Blooming heck, Bev’s lost the plot … TWO cards to post today and first up is Miss Tilda! I’ve used one of those brilliant Crealies Create-a-Card dies to make this one.  When I first saw the die I had no clue what to do with it, but Crealies have got some extremely helpful tutorial videos and download sheets on their website which made the card really simple to do and a heck of a lot easier than it looks.

I hope you can see how the pieces in the centres are cut away by the die, leaving a central panel that I popped Tilda on once I had decorated the card with yummy Lemoncraft papers and that gorgeous flower border along the top.

And next up is a shabby chic card using some delectable tulle trim that Tracy is now stocking at Noor Design as well as the latest delivery of sublime Lemoncraft Papers.  The links to all the products are at the end of the post.

Isn’t that Prima Trinket clock just fab?!  It got a dose of gesso to shabby it up a little.  The small lilac flowers in the picture below (top left and bottom right) were made with watercolour paper and the Joy Crafts Vintage Flourishes Bloom 6.  So quick and easy to do.

I just love the dimension on the tulle, so soft and pretty too.

That’s it from me today, after all that crafting I needed a darkened room lol.

Wee Oak Tree Girl

I went Wee stamp crazy a few weeks back and coloured up quite a few images.  This little Oak Tree Girl from Whimsy Stamps is one of them.

I coloured her up with Copic markers, I still tend to reach for those when I’m in a hurry.

Hair/Bird/Acorns: E43, 41, 40
Clothes/Shoes: R02, 01, 00, 0000; E41, 40, W00; E44, 43, 41
Leaves: YG95, 93, 91

I used a large Crafters Companion doily die behind the image.  It’s been discontinued but they are to be had on eBay, that’s where I managed to get mine from.

bev-rochester-wee-oak-tree-girl-peach1

The paper is Trimcraft’s Floral Muse.  The leaves are a really old Dovecraft punch that embosses at the same time.  I unearthed quite a few of these I can’t even remember buying lol.

My Father

My Mister Tom papers by Pion arrived this week, and they are just brilliant for those tricky male cards.  This one about made itself it was so simlpe to do!

bev-rochester-pion-mr-tom1

I used the stunning new Joy Craft Big Fence and Background die to add an extra layer.  I did this in dark brown, and it really helps to lift the upper layers.  A clock charm, some ribbon and a key along with a stamped image and one male card done. Smile
