Good morning Lovelies and welcome to my final post of May.

Here are the rest of the samples I made for the shows on The Craft Store TV last month.

My first project is a Journal page.
I started by heat embossing in white on the topper and a spare piece of card, I cut the circles using a circle cutter in different sizes and blended Distress inks over the embossed background which created a resist, and randomly stamped parts from the same set using Versafine Claire ink and edged with Black Soot Distress ink, I repeated the same technique for the topper but also splattered some water and dried it to create some texture, I stamped the Mushroom on a another piece of card and used Distress inks to colour it, and then decoupaged it. I used a white gel pen to add some dots and lines for finishing touches and a bit of splattering too, I used a charcoal grey Inktense pencil to create a drop shadow, it really gives it that 3D look.
I used a Die to create this card which has a cross stitch fabric type effect but it’s card! I used low tack tape around the edge to create a frame and stamped the Mushroom, I masked it using Masking Tissue from the CB website, I then heat embossed in white the Seed Pods and blended Distress inks over the top, removed the tissue and used Inktense pencil to create drop shadows.

I stamped my Envelope with Distress Oxides and Versafine Clair inks.

My Bookmark was a scrap of card from my stash which had been a Gel press print, I stamped lightly using Distress Oxide inks to create some texture, I also had some Acetate in my stash which I had already coloured with Alcohol inks so I used that as an uneven overlay, the pocket watches are heat embossed with a variety of chunky embossing powders and stamped into, cut out and stuck on.
Simple stamping with Distress Oxides on my next Bookmark 

And for the last 2, simple stamping and masking.

Thank you for visiting today I hope you have enjoyed your visit.

Have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx

Good morning Lovelies and welcome to my second post for this month.

Here are some more of my samples from last months shows on The Craft Store.

The Retro Flowers and Vases sets we’re older Stamps that have been revived after a period of retirement and the pine cone and seed pods were designed by the very talented Kim Moody.

I actually thought the Pinecone made a pretty flower.

I heat embossed and coloured with Watercolour markers the Pinecone cards and the Seed pod projects I used Pan Pastels.

Thank you so much for spending your time visiting today I hope you like my samples.

Have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx
