Daisy Stencil | Butterfly Stamps

Hello and Happy Friday to you! Sorry our blog has been a little neglected for a few days, it’s been such a busy week! We have also been doing live demos over on our Facebook PAGE most evenings so check them out if you haven’t already! Our wonderful Design Team have been really enjoying creating lots of projects with our NEW stencils, and Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog today with a gorgeous summer canvas featuring our ‘Daisy Daisy’ stencil with our new ‘Summer Wings’ stamps, a perfect combination…



Sharing the same name as my Granddaughter Daisy, I just had to use this stencil for my first make with the new release.

How gorgeous is that!



I wanted to create something very light and summery so I got out my distress sprays and had a play on watercolour card.


I love that you can use the spray ink left behind to print with too (these are the images on the white
card)




I decided to use stamps from the Summer Wings set to make a very summery canvas.

I stamped lots on inky mop up card and then added some more inks as needed.



I also stamped and cut the words into “banners”



I used this stenciled image.


I stamped my butterflies in place



and then decoupaged the wings adding glossy accents to their centres, and to the the centre of the daisy stencil.



Here is the finished canvas..

and one last shot..



This is such a pretty stencil and would work in so many different colourways and with so many different stamps. A real “must have” for any crafter.


The new stencil release is available to pre-order now! There are 8 more stencils in the release, do check out social media and the Facebook page where there are lots of samples being shared.


Thanks so much for stopping by.

Bye for now,

Making A Splash!

Hello there… hope you are well. Wow it’s been a hot one today! And it’s been one of those brain frazzling kind of days here too! Apologies for not blogging for the last few days, we will make up for it though as we have lots of fabulous inspiration to share with you!

Here’s Jane Tyrrell making a splash….


I am here with my weekly Visible Image inspiration. We have a brand new challenge running for July over on Facebook and the theme is  “a splash of colour”. As I have recently returned from my holiday in Portugal I took the theme literally and wanted to make a card with a seaside splash of colour.

There is nothing like the sea and a clear summer sky abroad. I wanted to try to recreate the feel of a hot summer day by the sea. I chose a couple of summer blue distress inks and added them to my craft sheet. I sprayed a spritz of water and then dipped my card into the pools of inky blue dye until I had a created a sea splash/wave pattern I was happy with.




I knew just the image to use… the sea jumping Katie stamp from the Tomorrow Doesn’t Exist set



I also wanted to add summer into the mix so I got out my Alphabetical set 


I selected the stamps to spell summer… I couldn’t resist using the # again too! I stamped and embossed my images and letters.


Here are a couple of close ups. The light reflects off the embossing and the inks give a feeling of the splash of colour in the sea.

 



I hope you enjoy a wonderful summer and that you get the chance to smell the sea and feel the warmth of the sunshine on your skin…. such a fabulous feeling.


We hope to see lots of you joining in with this month’s “a splash of colour” challenge over in the Visible Image Facebook group.

The sun has returned and it looks like we have a week of gorgeous blue skies to look forward to ?.  I have lots of crafting to catch up with in my garden studio!

Back soon!
Bye for now,
