So next offering:

 This is from my main Card sheet. The Boys at KH do give loads for the money, so lets try and describe my main card offering.................

So an easel card, matted and layered as given by the boys, the main image has been Tim Holtz'd with Crackle glaze, there's beads on wires overlaying the design by the boys, theres Faux Pearls imitating the beads provided in the design, liberal application of faux pearl beads around the frame, the Stopper is mounted onto some laxe trim I had lying around, and the base card underneath has lightly been distressed with Vintage photo.

Vintage Treasures 5

Well Back again, One week until the Create & Craft show on Tuesday February 19th at 1pm and 6pm. 
So here's another one for you.............
This a sweet little easel. Again a 3 3/4" square card base, backing papers from the Cd, Topper and Matt, and as a stopper a small section of one of the tiled lace papers, you'll see in more detail on the show, but they are fab for doing things like tiles, corners, etc,
Again I used the Pinflair Pearl wand for the faux pearls, and would you believe that the blue ones on the bottom, and the orange ones round the image came from the same tube? Because they did, which reminds me I need to order more!

Have fun, dont forget the Webshop, and the inspiration from my Teamies

Vintage Treasures 4

Okay seven more day to go until the show on Create & Craft show on Tuesday February 19th at 1pm and 6pm, so lets cut to what I have been doing.......

This is one of my Favourites! The stuff you need is hidden away on the cd, so you will have to go find it, its full of scrummy Yummy ness.
I printed 3 of the toppers off, and used 2 of the prints to decoupage the Fan up, carefully trimming with a knife, then scoring and glazing with Holographic embossing powder.
This time its on an 8x8" card base, the paper was printed from the cd, and the inside is covered with a handmade paper. The addition of a few pearls, and I really like this card, hope you do too, 

Dont forget to pop to the webshop for supplies and visit my Teamies for more inspiration

Vintage Treasures 3

Well another of the offerings from my latest bout of sample making:
Again you can see more on the Create & Craft show on Tuesday February 19th at 1pm and 6pm.

This was a scrummy image to work with, so sweet. again one of my 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" base cards, backing paper from the cd, and the topper and its matching layer. I also added some lace trim from the embellishment section of the cd, and finished it with a couple of Cosmic Shimmer faux Pearls.
Check out the webshop for supplies, and dont forget to drop in on my Teamies for more inspiration.

Vintage Treasures 2

Well another one from me:

You can see all these samples and more on the Create & Craft show on Tuesday February 19th at 1pm and 6pm,

so my offering for now.................

Dont forget Mike and Ian do toppers and matching layers for the toppers, and this is a small 3 3/4" square card base, with ribbon, and some lace. The pearls were made using Pinflairs Pearl wand, for some reason it seems to absorb the colour slightly of what it is placed on so is always a perfect match.
Dont forget to check out the webshop, and my teamies for more inspiration, 

hugs Lou

Vintage treasures,

Hi guys,

Well here's some of the reasons I seem to blog in spats just lately: Currently I have been working on samples for the Boys at Krafty Hands, for their new disk, Vintage Treasures, on Create and Craft at 1 and 6 pm Tuesday 19th Feb.

So now I can give you some sneaky peaks,

Each of my posts are going to be short, but do remember that I only worked on a few sheets from the CD, there is loads more to see, and you need to visit my Teamies to see more examples.

This is one of the extra toppers from my Card Set, cut into 9 small squares glazed with embossing powder, and mounted on some scrunched up brown paper. Then I just added some ribbon to frame it.

Hi there,

Hope you've been well, I bin busy, loads of stuff I cant show yet, which is par for the course for me, sigh!
Anyway First Saturday of the month, and a New Challenge over at Krafty Hands.........Spring Colours!

Now People lately have been turning Easel cards on their sides, and having done it, I'm not too sure...............

Mine is a simple card this month, nothing fiddly or phaffily, simple, and more or less as it came from the CD, Daisy Farm.
The Decoupage was printed onto glossy photo card, then mounted onto some orange base card.
Papers were printed onto some Supersmooth and used to Matt onto the base Burnt Orange card stock.
The paper Ribbons and sentiment were printed onto plain card stock, and Matted into position.
The button under the sentiment, was punched and then glazed with crystal accents, as was the Tiny Cow Head under the main image.
Then add some glitter and gems, and a very simple card, quick and easy, and Ideal for the new challenge this month, so what will you create?
