Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge for April

Good morning Lovelies, popping in to share a card I made for Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge for April. I always enjoy crafting to a theme, whether is colour or a topic, it's fun and challenging. The rules and instructions to join in are on the blog, if you click on the highlighted link above it'll take you there and you'll find all you need to do etc in the tabs.

So here's what I came up with, I used the gorgeous "Key to my Dreams" set 
I used Distress Oxides to colour my background and heat embossed with gold and black, the key I fussy cut to give dimension.

 

Thank you joining me today, I hope I've inspired you? Have a great day xx Zoe xx

New Sweet Poppy Stencils pt 2

Good evening Lovelies.
I promised yesterday to post more samples of the gorgeous new Sweet Poppy Stencils and I've only just remembered!!! Oops!
So here they are.

These beautiful Delphiniums are just super and I've just simply used glitter medium in various colours. My first one is actually the clean up from number 3, I just laid it onto card and used a wet wipe to clean the stencil, thus transferring the waste onto the card.

 
  
If you're going to Ally Pally over the weekend, pop along and say "hi" to our lovely Lucy, and of course purchase a few Stencils, you won't be disappointed.
Have a wonderful weekend xx Zoe xx

New Sweet Poppy Stencils

Good morning Lovelies.
I just wanted to share with you some projects I've made using the wonderful new stencils by Sweet Poppy Stencils, they will be at Ally Pally so if your planning on going check them out, they are fabulous.

I love these perfume bottles, I've used Distress inks and translucent paste.

 

I used Linen textured card and Pan Pastels to create a scene then used the glossy black Sweet Poppy Paste.

 
Please pop back tomorrow as I have more to share with you, have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx

This months theme for Lavinia Stamps Creative Challenge is - Sparkle and Bling. You don't need a blog to enter the challenge, the details are here. Theres an amazing £40 prize for the winner, chosen by Random.org.

Here are my creations.
My first card I used a small Gelli Plate with Adirondack inkpads, I heat embossed using glitter Wow Powders.

 
My second card I made a Masterboard using a stencil that I'd cut using my Scan n Cut of the flowers, which I'd inked through using Gesso after having first creating my inky background with water splatters on Distress inks, I used Glittery Wow Powders and Versafine to heat embossed the flowers, a few sequins and Voila!

A couple of birthdays

Good afternoon Lovelies.
I hope you've managed to avoid the awful winter virus going around, it really is very unpleasant, day 5 for me and I'm still feeling poorly, the cough and cold I can cope with, the dizziness, nasty taste in mouth, aches and feeling cold I can't. I'm feeling quite sorry for myself actually and I'm not one to give in usually but this has pulled me down.
Never mind, tomorrow is a brand new day!
I just thought I'd share a couple of cards I've made for birthdays coming up.
The first is a dear friend and the second is my lovely Daughter Ashley, her birthday is in March.
I used Chocolate Baroque stamps and the fab new Distress Oxide inkpads, my second card is Indigoblu stamp and Brushos.

 
 

Thank you for visiting, have a great day xx Zoe xx
