Heartfelt creations

Morning...
Last night I had another evening out with my daughter to see the brilliant McBusted.. We've seen them countless times.. It's like an annual outing (originally to see Mcfly).. Anyways I'm aching from head to foot from all the dancing .. My Fitbit recorded over 14 thousand moves!!! Hence the aching lol.. 

Anyways today I am gonna share with you a thank you card I made using the new heartfelt creations everyday hero stamps and dies.. 
The flowers are also made using heartfelt creations (the name escapes me!)


I started with white gesso and used a mixture of shimmering paint and distress ink.. I stamped over this with archival in blue..


All my bits awaiting assembly.. 



Here is the finished card.... 



Thank you for your visit..

One day to go

Mornin..

2 more samples for you from
The launch tomorrow on create and craft tv sky channel 674.. From Sheena Douglass ..


This  one of the new stamps, simply using chipped sapphire distress ink and some stickles.. 


I used an alcohol ink background.. 
I used tin foil stuck to card to use with the new embossing folder.. Again colouring it with spectrum pens and I used a little stazon over the raised bits 
The stamps and dies I used were from the perfect partners. 

Reet .. I'm off to look for a holiday.. I've just fed my pond fish guinea pig food, so I really do think it's time for  a holiday!! 
Didn't envisage spending 20 mins with a net fishing in the pond this morning that's for sure..
Thank you for your visit..
