Exploding Blooms box.

This is a commissioned piece for one of the ladies at my son's karate club. It's for her mum's birthday. The brief was "something flowery"!

I haven't used these templates for a while so thought I'd do something a little bit different for her. The templates are Wendie Rhodes Exploding blooms, and they are just lovely!

I used Joanna Sheen's Perfume Bottles rubber stamps, and stamped and embossed them in white, and just added a white bow and some peel-offs to finish things off. I think this piece will go down really well, as it is really quite pretty and girlie. I'm really pleased with the end result too.

Thanks for looking in,

Take care

Joanna Sheen Decoupage

This is a Birthday Card for my mum. I used Joanna Sheen's Decoupage Botanical 1 set for this. I do like this image, very soft and it was also an excuse to do something green, which I very seldom do because I struggle somewhat with Green.

Anyway, I'm not too sure I like it, maybe I should have used the gold peel offs on the decoupage page instead of the small flowers. It just doesn't look 'quite right' to me. Never mind, we live and learn, sadly it's too late to change it now, I've got such a busy week ahead that I just won't have the time to do another one.

I also used the Glitter Girls Tall Stories board for this, which I must admit to having had for ages and seldom used, suppose this card was as good an excuse any! lol.

The 'best wishes' tag was made with the Eazi-Score Mandalla board, which I adore because it has sooo many different uses!
Take care and thanks for dropping by,

Apologies for the lack of blogging recently, but life has just got in the way of things just now.

Anyway, I made this ATC gift pack using instructions from the Inside secrets of a Scoreboard book by Eazi-Score Phylis. I also used some of the Elusive Images stamps for some of the phrases and also the decoration on the pack as well as some backing papers from the Artylicious Filgree Fusion cd.

I haven't made atc's in such a long time so I really enjoyed tryoing these out again.

Thanks for dropping by
