Just hanging around...

Good morning peeps!

I'm back with another of these fabulously cute new
 Wild Rose Studio stamps and dies!
This little Fox Cub just loves hanging around on his branch!
This is how he appears in the catalogue and he was even chosen to be on the stockists front cover.
Here's some of my close ups!


As with all my stamps I colour with Promarkers and add shading with Spectrum Noirs.

The new papers were such beautiful muted pastels
that I chalked the images edges and gave the card a
woody vintage feel.


Kraft card was just the thing for layering and the punched leaves.
I added a splash of lime green in the flower and the layered butterflies on the die.
Wooden flower button completes the natural theme.
A strip of lace adds to the texture.



Challenges:

Papertake Weekly...Bingo Grid

I think I have the bottom row covered Buttons, Lace and Bloom
a diagonal Punches, Free and Buttons.

The Pink Elephant...Happy Birthday

Simon says Wednesday... Add a little Texture
(Lace and wooden button)


Thanks for coming to look.
Please leave me a comment and I'll come visit you!

Love from Sally.

Wild Rose Studio stamp launch

Good Morning.
It's a great day for Wild Rose Studio fans as the new stamps papers and dies are being unveiled at Stitches at the NEC.

I'm still really proud to design cards for them and to be an original DT member that started with them at the beginning.
I'm going to start off by showing you this cute little panda card using one of the new stamps, dies and papers.
I colour with Promarkers and used some soft pastel shades to match the silver grey and golden tones in the paper.
Lots of lovely creamy vintage lace and peach pearls in the cente of the flowers
 on the floral spray die cut.
I always add a touch of glitter to my flowers and butterflies.
This is the official shot from the catalogue.

Here are some of my detail close ups...


Challenges:
Passion for Promarkers...Perfect Pearls
ABC Challenge...Die Cuts
My time to Craft...Oriental (My Panda)

All the details for this card and all the other new products are on the Wild Rose Studio site.

Hope you come back again to look at more from me and WRS!

Love from Sally.x

Anniversary flowers...

Hello there!
Oh my goodness, at last I have found my cameras software disc and found out how to download my camera so I have some photos downloaded onto my new laptop!
Hooray!
It was just a question of finding the time to tidy up and do some clearing out!
This week I have set myself the task to clear and paint my eldest daughters bedroom while she is on holiday in Alicante.
We are having wardrobes built in so it was a good time to do it!
Going from shocking pink to white and purple!


 So I'm still playing with my doodles and drawings and colouring them in, making cards with them and sending things to
Stamp-press.com to be made into stamps.

Challenges:
I love Promarkers... Weddings/Anniversaries
Allsorts...Any Occasion except Birthday

Tomorrow is the launch of the new Wild Rose Studio catalogue so I can show you what I have been doing for them too!


Hope you have kept me on your blog lists.
Please leave me a comment if you can so I know that you have seen this.

Lots of love on this Valentines Day!

Butterflies for Grace.



Well... Hello February!
and hello followers ...

Getting a new laptop was great...however I am rubbish getting used to new things.
I've lost the camera leads and only just found my cameras software so all pics are from my phone at the moment.
I think it may be a new camera soon.
I have been creating new cards and have some things to show you using new Wild Rose Studio dies and stamps but I'm not allowed to show you just yet!

So this card was a recent make just before Christmas for a work friends grand-daughter.


This is using my favourite WRS dies. These gorgeous butterflies!

Papertake Weekly challenge is Anything Goes this week.
Hope they like my card.

Looking forward to getting back to some more regular blog posting now.
Come join me on
Sally Bees Handmade cards on FB  for more regular postings!

See ya soon

Look out for lots of jewels on my cards as I went for the large pack of bling from hobbycraft recently.
