Floral Corona - Tattered Lace

Good morning everyone, today I am sharing samples from another new Tattered Lace launch.

The Floral Corona collection.

I was sent 2 of the add on dies to work with, here are my samples 

At the time I didnt have the matching charisma images to use so I use alcohol markers, guiding wax and glitter glue to colour my images.

The dies used are linked below

On the product page you can download the free charisma image to use again and again.

Duo dies - DT samples

It's Friday at last and that means the last school day for a while as we break for Easter today, I'm looking forward to 2 weeks of rest and fun with my children, before that I thought I'd share some cards with you.

I was recently sent some new Duo sentiment dies to work with, Never having worked with them before I didn't know what to expect. Below are the cards I created and link to the dies which are being launched tomorrow on Create and Craft TV.

They font used is beautiful, very pretty and delicate. I love how they add to a card without over powering it.

The launch is happening on Saturday 24th March at 8am on Create and Craft TV.

Masking Unleashed - Altenew Educator Certification Program

Today's post is all about masking and is my last card for the Level 2 Altenew educator certification program.

I haven't worked with the Painted flowers stamp set for some time and thought this would be a good time to dig it out and spend time with an old favourite.

I started by stamping the flowers I was going to be using onto some making paper and cut them out. I used the masks to allow me to place images in the back ground while protecting the stamped images in the foreground. 

I chose a combination of pinks and peach colours to work with. I stamped the peach flowers in the lower part of the card first, I then masked them and stamped the pink flowers and outline images.  I then repeated this process in the top part of the card.

I added a sentiment from the Beautiful Quotes stamp set and embellished with sequins.

I've added links to the products used for your convenience.

I hope you've enjoyed today's post, I will be back with more very soon.
