Sunday Stampers Feeling Blue

Gosh second post for me today i am doing well your all well and enjoying this lovely Sunshine we are having in the uk!Especially with the Kiddo's on half term does help if the weather stays fine.Well i have found a wee bit of time to craft mainly if the girls are out!

Today i have for you a Tag Called "So Tweet" This is for the lovely Challenge Hels runs over at the "Sunday Stamper" this week the theme is: "Blue" Well i think ive incorporated the theme as well as some stamping. I have used dies from Tim Holtz the lovely Tag die and also the New Release Rosette Die whihc i have to say prefer to the bigger one!Maybe thats because it's relatively new nad i won it in some I have also used the beautiful Ranger Distress Stains Wow i am just in loveeee with these and so pleased i bought these when the set was on offer!Yes i have all 12 .But on this creation i have used only 3,these being Broken China,faded Jeans and Weathered wood. I stained the tag then i stamped the image "Bella Tolle" beautiful stamp from stampin up.I used the stains to stamp with .These are so versitile as you can control how much you want and flow by the wee sponge top.I then stamped Tim Holtz stamp From one of his latest collections down the side in Stampin up distress ink "Tea Stain"which i also have fallen in loveeee with! I then used another T/H die the birdcage and have used my copper leaf Krylon pen to colour it. I have added a wee pearl charm i made to the top and used some blue co-ordinating firbers too.The Flower is from the T/Holts die and using his new stack papers crowdid attic.The sentiment is recycled from a gift i received but i have added punch and stained that with the distress stains too.I positioned the birdie so it looks like he's half in and out of the cage ..if you get me drift!Distressed the edges with T/Holtz tool slightly then inked with Tea stain. To finish off i have added a seal to the center of the flower. I am slos going to enter this into Simon Says Stamp & Show . This weeks theme is "Distressing"
Hope you like my creation have fab day and enjoy the weather whilst you can!

WOYWW........97...Creative Mess

Good Morning Woywwers yes it's Wednesday already school hols in full swing But so is the lovely hot weather.We have had lovely sunny hot days since last Tuesday so we have been lucky got all my seeds i needed to put in the veggie patch done and dusted.So i can now concentrate on some essential over due crafting including DT work.Now if your wondering what this WOYWW is all about well .It's a whole bunch crafters around the world snooping at each others craft desk.Thanks to Julia the boss it is now a ritual of Wednesdays .So if you wanna find out more and join in then pop over to her blog "The Stamping Ground" First of all the desk above shows a frame which i have altered as was plain cork .I have made it look as though the piccy is 3d sort of in box frame .The piccy you ask is the beautiful ATC i won a couple of weeks ago from the lovely talented Hels . The Frame is not finished yet but the ATC was absolutely stunning and thought i couldnt just put in my ATC folder and forget so thats whats happening with that one. Also i have on my desk some die cuts yes been playing with MR V(vagabond)and the dies that i won from the craft barn,as well as others i already have of course. At the back you will see the lovely bottles 3 infact of the lovely new Distress Stains.I have to admit i have the whole set and they are just to die for with their wee little sponge top.So you can control the flow.I have used them on the piece of work you can sort see on my desk .Which when completed later today will be my creation for the "Sunday Stampers Challenge" .This week is something Blue. In the above piccy is a basket(again 20p find in charity shop) that is full of creations im working on." altered Books which open up.Then afraid to say the altered matchbox which hasnt got any further than last week .Except gone from rt hand side of desk to the left in a basket .Also a green frame which i picked up at charity shop for 20p which im alterning sanded down and painted thats about it thats the green you can see popping through. Here you can see the tag that needs finsihing today drying from last night and also i covered a beer mat/coaster in the distress stains too which will end up being something.Also see the small rosette die cut awaitng to be shaped for the tag.The stamp at the back is creativity by Tim Holtz. Now theres a story well i had already made my WOYWW anniversary gift to pass on and on Monday decieded id do something else .So now i have 2 completed creations and i love the second one best so think some lucky person will receive that one the other i shall keep as a reminder.Also if you want to know more about making a special creation and passing it on again go to Julia's blog and read all about it.So that stamp was left on my desk from that project. Hoping to get round you all this week think i managed most last week bar a few. Well have fab week enjoy the weather whilst it lasts never know this may be our UK!!! Love n hugs
