I’m feeling a little Bohemian!!

I have discovered a new challenge blog which has just started and this is my first time joining in!! It’s TGIF Challenges!!

I always love a good sketch challenge and I really like the one they have for this week.

My idea for the card altered as I was going on due to a stamping mis-hap!! But I’m happy with the end result!!

I have used a few new products which are coming out in the 2015-2016 Catalogue. Firstly, I’ve used the new Bohemian Borders stamp and the co-ordinating Bohemian Designer Washi tape. I actually got my colour combo from the back of the Bohemian DSP. Did you know that all of the co-ordinating colours are listed there!! So I used Blackberry Bliss, Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay and the new Delightful Dijon.

I also did my favourite technique, using the marker technique on the stamp. I love this look!!

Here’s a close up of the detail.

And, of course, no card is complete without a bit of bling, so I added some Bermuda bay sequins. Love!!

I’d love to hear what you think!! And if you would like a copy of the new catalogue, let me know and I’ll send one out to you.

Happy Stamping!!

1 January 2014 – Can you believe it?

Can you believe that it’s a new year already!!! I can’t!! I hope you had a Merry Christmas and a great new year with friends and family.

I wanted to share a project that I made for a fabulous friend’s birthday.

I had received a Christmas version last year (woops, sorry the year before!!) and wanted to make a non-xmas one for my friend.

I picked up the cane heart for $4 from a Homewares store (which I then saw for $2 in the Boxing Day sales!) Then it was just a matter of deciding on a stamp set and away I went.

My friend loves purple so I used Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum. I also used a couple of embossing folders, Lacy Brocade and my first favourite, Perfect Polka Dots and the Oval Accent Bigz die and of course, the Deco Labels Collection framelits. Gee, the Big Shot really got a work out on this project, didn’t it!!

A bit of hand cutting and then I was ready to assemble it and attach it to the heart with my trusty hot glue gun.

I hope you like it!!
