Pretty Quick Stained Glass Peacock Sentiment Spinner :D


A vibrant gold Peacock sentiment spinner card using the phenomenal Peacock die set from the new additions to the Pretty Quick Stained Glass Collection by CraftStash :D Available here :D This is the second video I've shared using this stunning Peacock die (and I have more ideas, fingers crossed I'll get round to them soon!!), and I decided to make this card bigger than I usually do, and to incorporate a spinner :D That gorgeous Best Wishes sentiment was just screaming out to become a spinner :D I used a few colours of Pixie Powders to create my mystical background, then I used some Topaz Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer paint to colour my peacock die cut :D My final touch was the addition of some gold gems, those little circles in the peacocks feathers are just perfect for adding a bit of bling :D

Pretty Quick Stained Glass Peacock Distress Oxide :D


The second installment of the phenomenal Pretty Quick Stained Glass Collection of Dies Launches tomorrow on CraftStash, so here's a sneaky video using the stunning Peacock Die set :D I created a soft chalky background using Distress Oxides and the smooshing technique, added some details with Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels, then used a plain white die-cut for that instant contrast :D Hope you like the card :D I really love this way this turned out, and I think it would look just as great in other colour ways too :D There'll be three more videos using dies from this collection throughout this week :D If you're interested in buying the whole collection, there's a great bundle deal :D

A Tonic Party with Magical Dragons :D


A fun magical card today using lots of Nuvo Embellishment mousse to create a nice scenic background :D I also used the Tonic Lets Party die in the foreground, then coloured the adorable MFT Magical Dragon stamps using my Nuvo Creative Pens (linked below :D) I had lots of fun making this card, creating the scene with lots of different dies, and adding the cute Magical Dragons characters!! That knight and princess just have to be on a wedding card at some point (maybe soon ;) lol) they're far tooo cute :D :D Top tip, the best way to get a nice even coverage of Nuvo Mousse on your die-cut pieces of card, is to apply it with Cut N Dry foam (link below) it goes on much smoother than just using your finger (as you can see in the video :D) Hope you enjoyed today's card :D

Spellbinders Seahorse Thanks :D



A sea themed card using lots of gorgeous Spellbinders dies :D I had the idea for the background of this card while on a car ferry, I was looking out of the window down and the sea and was inspired by the gorgeous colour of the sea with that white spray (created with the white acrylic and natural sponge) then I finished the card off with a cluster of gorgeous Spellbinders dies :D Links to where you can buy them below :D This was actually a thank you card to one of my new crafty friends, Christina, shes been sooo generous and lovely, that I just had to send her another thank you card to show how much I appreciate everything :D

I used the cool brayer attachment for the Tool N One to create my background :D I've only just gotten this, and it's a fab nifty little brayer, I can't wait to try it out on my Gelli plate too :D I think it'll be great for creating some cool ombre backgrounds :D The background was probably the most complicated part of this card (see video below for full process) :D After it was all dry, all I did was die-cut lots of elements from white card, then I used lots of colours of Embellishment Mousse (listed below) along with my finger to colour in the die-cuts :D Hope you enjoyed today's video :D
