Flowers for you–All Dressed Up

A pink and girly card from me today, and I hit the distress inks for colouring again too.  The Fabriano watercolour paper from Noor Design makes colouring a total breeze.

Love how Lemoncraft co-ordinate their papers with tags, buttons, etc so everything comes together so easily.

Candibean Honey Pot

I had a tinker with the distress inks last week, I really am rusty with them and find grabbing my copic markers so much quicker and easier to colour with.  But, I’m persevering, and gave colouring this adorable little Candibean Honey Pot by LDRS a go.

bev-rochester-candibean-honey-pot

The pen nib started off it’s life a vintage gold but I needed it to be silver to match the pearl string that I had used, so out came the Krylon pen and voila!  One silver nib

Love this pearl string, so pretty

Shabby Chic Dream

After shooting a brief video for the new Crafteezee Monthly Subscription Kit last week I decided to shoot another video as I was making up a card using the kit.  It’s been quite some time since I did a video, so I back to being a beginner lol. 

bev-rochester-crafteezee-collection-nautical

The only things I added that weren’t in the kit are some of the flowers and the no-hole pearls, and I still have loads of stuff left for more projects.  

A closer look at the divine lace and organza trim.  Just exquisite!

The white and silver berries were a perfect match (links at the end of the post)

I absolutely adore this kit!

Hedgehog and Ladybug

Monday saw the start of the Whimsy August 2016 Release Party over in our Whimsy Stamps and Inspirations Facebook group. The Whimsy DT will be sharing sneak peeks at the new products releasing today, so pop across and join us for games, fun, and a chance to win Whimsy prizes.

To join our release party event, just pop over to the Whimsy group any time during the week from Monday, August 8th through Friday, August 12th.

I’ve used Hedgehog with ladybug on my card today along with the super AWESOME Bold Banners sentiment stamps and matching Bold Banners dies, also available Wednesday, August 10th in the Whimsy Store..  These stamps are never going to be put away, they are going to be in constant use that’s for sure.  I asked Denise a while back if she could do something like these, and man oh man did Whimsy ever exceed my expectations.  They are fab-you-lass!!




This little cutie was super easy to colour.  I used copic markers:
Hedgie – E13, 11, 00, 000, R20; E70, 74, 77, 79
Flowers: G20, W1
Leaves: G94, YG67, 63, 61, G20, C9




I dug out some old MME papers and love how the soft yellows and corally reds work together



A mix of handmade and bought flowers with Prima doily and leaves



Keep checking back in the Whimsy Facebook group, there’s lots of inspiration and prizes up for grabs.

A quick and easy Christmas card with handmade poinsettias today.

bev-rochester-noor-christmas-bauble-aug-16

I made the flowers uisng flock paper and added a layer of glittered paper petals for a bit of extra bling.  I also die cut some glittered leaves.

And what could make an easy card even easier than the gorgeous Scrapiniec chipboard shapes?  I painted the bauble with white paint and glittered the top layer before adhering them together.

Shabby Chic … again

I think these shabby chic cards are fast becoming my favourite type of card to make, I’m in my element faffing about adding all sorts of stuff I’m unearthing in my craft room.

bev-rochester-noor-lemoncraft-pink

I made the gorgeous lace butterfly from Noor Design the focal point on this one (links at the end of the post), and teamed it with a pretty floral frame and lots of PINK!

The tiny little pale pink flowers (bottom right in picutre above) was made using dies and mulberry paper

‘Tis the Season

It’s a new challenge on the Noor Design Blog today and this month the theme is Christmas.  I’ve had this little Giordano Snowman stamp from Joanna Sheen for a while and never got round to using it.  It's my new favourite stamp!

bev-rochester-giordano-snowman


Isn’t he just the sweetest little snowman?  I coloured him up with distress inks for a change


bev-rochester-giordano-snowman-5


I made the gorgeous poinsettia flowers using the new die set from Noor Design.  I layered up some glitter card inbetween the white card for a bit of extra bling.  All links are at the end of the post


bev-rochester-giordano-snowman-6


The little button is adhered to a piece of Scrapiniec chipboard that I heat embossed with Wow embossing powder.  The little sparkly bells are die cut also from the poinsettia set.

I love making Christmas cards – they’re my favourite.  You can never have too much sparkle Open-mouthed smile
