Sheena's samples

 Sorry I've been a bit quiet for a few days but me and my hubby have been on holiday in the Peak District.  We are campers, but it's the first time we have out the tent up when it's windy, hailing and then snowing!!!!.  Yes snowing in May.  Even though the weather was not kind to us the whole time, we did have three sunny days, and even though the weather was testing, we still had a fab time away. 

 So, I thought I would have a break from the mountain of ironing, and share all my samples that I did for Sheena's last stamp release.  These stamps are just amazing, and if you have got them, I hope you share all your creations with us.

I don't now if you are aware, but Sheena has a DT call out!!.  Yes, us Inkoids are definitely after world domination (hehehehe), so Sheena is wanting 2 mo lucky people to join us.  If you are interested have a look on Sheena's Facebook page, and also the other Inkoids page and the info is there, asking for 3 samples and preferably using Sheena's products.  Go on, give it a try.  We are a great bunch of Inkoids, and look forward to working with the lucky couple.  We do have a lot of fun.

Anyway, here are all of my samples.

Well, must go and conquer this mountain of ironing.

Bye for now

A blingy sample

Hello, hope everyone has enjoyed the show so far today.  I thought I would share this one I did using the Hibiscus stamp, luminart pourables, heat resistant acetate and gold WOW embossing powder. 
I stamped and embossed onto the acetate and then using crystal lacquer, luminart pourables and some tissue paper I made this caught in crystal. I left it overnight to dry and then cut the flowers and leaves out. 
It's hard to get the bling across in this photo, but it's definitely there. 

Don't forget the 3pm show today  
Bye for now

Sneak peak number 2

Hello, here is my second sample to show you. 

This is from the Hibiscus stamp plate.  The picture does not show it vey well, but the flowers and leaves are coloured with luminart pourables.  I initially distressed the paper using Distress Ink, and then apply the pourables with a damp sponge.    Using black pearl card, I embossed it with an 8 x 8 folder and the raised areas I have applied gold wax to.

Thank you for stopping to have a look.

Hugs Caroline xx

Sneak peak number 1

Hello.  It's been a while but I'm back blogging.  

I am sharing my first sneak peak of Sheena's new stamps which will be on Create and Craft on Saturday at 10am and 3 pm.  I am in love with these stamps, and the new clear rock a blocks.  They make stamping so much easier now, and I don't think I will use anything else now.

Anyway back to the stamps. As you can see I have used the Lily of the Valley stamp plate.  There was a lot of masking with this card, but I thoroughly enjoyed making it.  The image is coloured with Copics, a grand spellbinder nestability had its edges distressed with peeled paint.  

I hie you like it, as with this one I wanted it to look quite clean and simple.  

Keep your eyes open for more sneak peaks.

Thanks for stopping by.
