Sheena Douglass Perfect Partners

Hello everyone and thanks for dropping in.
I am still slightly overwhelmed by all the comments I received on my last project, both here and on Facebook, thanks so much for that, so much appreciated.

Today I am showing you the first set of cards I made for Sheena Douglass's shows which are due to take place on Thursday March 12 on Create and Craft
Shows are taking place at the following times: 8 am, 11 am, 2 pm, 4 pm and 7 pm, and if you love Sheena Douglass stamps, trust me, you don't want to miss this! New stamps, dies and embossing folders. Ok, so here are the first few of my samples, - I'll be showing more as the days go on.
An easel card, using some of the new stamps and dies. I also used an embossing folder, but that is hard to see on this one. The great thing is, the folders match some of the stamps, so you can layer them up over each other.
For this one I just used an embossing folder. This one has a matching stamp too, but I did not get that one. The great thing is though, If you colour the embossed image, it pretty much looks like a stamp. The flowers and leaves are all made using matching stamps and dies.
Finally, a box, again using one of the folders, stamps and dies. I particularly love the different flower and leave dies, they are so versatile and can be used for so many different projects.
The bird comes with its own matching die, it can be coloured in so many different ways. Here I coloured it to make it look a bit exotic and would match my background.

Well, that's it for the first installment. Like I said, there will be more in days to come.
Don't miss the shows!!
Thanks so much for visiting and see you next time!

Your easel card is very pretty and elegant! If I may say so, though, I love the gorgeous box with the beautiful colors and birds on top. The flowers and stenciling look amazing as well. Lots of inspiration within the walls of this blog!!! Thanks for sharing!

The card! Ohhhh the card. I'm drooling over the card. I like all the projects, but I fell into deep love of the card. Big M is going to divorce me when I tell him that he has to get his credit card out again on Thursday. Perhaps I should catch him at 8am, when he's still only half awake. lol
Sending love. (and still drooling...) ... ~ Cobs. x

Birthday Card

Birthday Card
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
