Creating Some Cards With Altenew Stamps

Hi there lovelies. Thanks for stopping by. 
Today I have some cards I created for an upcoming card class
I am teaching using some lovely "Altenew Stamps" & watercolours.

I absolutely adore these stamps. I have teamed them with some watercolours,
a little fussy cutting & some black leaves & flourishes that I have die cut.

I think combining all three elements adds a little pizzaz!!

 Well thats all from me for today, I will be back
 tomorrow with another new DT reveal.

Until then.

were all just coloured black with a stamp pad. Just too easy.

My October DT Reveal Part One For
2Crafty Chipboard
"Beautiful Little Girl"

Hi there lovelies, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have part one of my October DT reveal for 2Crafty Chipboard
and featuring my gorgeous grandaughter Mia.

These are the 2Crafty chippie pieces I have used.

2Crafty Chipboard Used..
Beautiful Little Girl - title
Geo Triangle Border
Geo Triangle Panel
Addy's Butterflies

All of the chippies I have used were firstly coated with gesso &
followed by some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays "Hottie Patottie" & "Azure Sea Asters"
brushed on, followed by a little water to create an uneven watercolour effect.

I love this "Geo Triangle Panel". It is a 6" panel but I have cut it up & placed
 it randomly underneath my photo. I repeated the pattern in the stamping too.

A couple of 2Crafty "Addy's Butterflies" added around the layout.
I always bend them in the middle to add a little dimension. 

This is one of their new borders called "Geo Triangle Border". It is a perfect
match to the panel. They work so well together.

I always cut my chippie pieces up to suit my layout so I teamed all the little
left over bits to create a cluster in the bottom left corner of the page.

Hope you like this, if you do, I would love you to leave me a comment.

Back in a few days time with part two.
Until then.

My 49 and Market - October DT Reveal
"On This Day"

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have my October DT Reveal for 49 and Market.
These beautiful photos are of my daughter in law on her wedding day.

These are the products I have used. All the names are listed below.
49 and Market Products Used...
Conservatory Paper
Heirloom Cut Outs
Passage Paper
Multi Pack of Flowers - Lavender

Gabbi's Texture Stamp Set

All of my chipboard including the title, frames & flourishes

For my background I have used the gorgeous "Conservatory" paper from the 
newly released "Heirloom Botanicals" collection. It matched the bridesmaid
dresses perfectly.

I also used lots of the "Multi Pack Flowers-Lavender". These packs are amazing.There are 
fourteen different size & shape flowers as well as some leaves, all in the one pack.

I also did some fussy cutting of some flowers from the 
"Pasage" paper too & just poked them in here & there,
perfect for creating layers.

I also cut out some various bits from the "Heirloom Cut Out" sheet,
like a clock & some butterflies etc.

Lastly I stamped some leaves with the 49 and Market 
"Gabbi's Texture Stamp Set" & coloured them with some
pink & lavender Lindy' Stamp Gang Magicals. These look beautiful in real life.

Well thats about all for today.

Makes sure you check out the 49 and Market blog,
there is sooo much inspiration there.
Until next time.

My More Than Words Challenge
October DT Reveal
"Timeless Beauty"

Hi there lovelies, thanks for calling by.
Today I have my October DT reveal for the new challenge over at
More Than Words Challenge.

 The October challenge is to either use, or be inspired by, the word CHANGE
& the creative challenge is to create a layout in OMBRE. Which means
various tones & shades of one colour. Going from light to dark.

As usual I have used some lovely 2Crafty Chipboard pieces on my layout.

2Crafty Chipboard Used..
Timeless Beauty - title
Corner Gemma's
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Pack
Leafy Shrub Set #1

 I have used the challenge word, CHANGE, in a little quote.

I have done lots of mixed media on both my background & chipboard.

I have also done some mixed media on some plain white card & used my
new favourite 49 and Market stamp set to stamp these leaves & cut them out.
I love that they are a perfect match to my background etc.

I even coloured up some old Prima flowers to tie in with the whole OMBRE theme.

Well thats all for today. I hope I have inspired you to create an OMBRE layout
& join in the fun with us over at More Than Words.
As always we have EIGHT Prizes to give away.

Until next time.
