Another Sheena Sneaky Peek

Morning lovely crafters on yet another wet morning. I have heard that we are promised a sunny and warm Friday though, so at least that's something to look forward too. I will clear my diary in readiness!!!!

I thought I'd just pop by this morning to share a couple more of the samples I've made using Sheena's new stamps. The first was another from the grasses plate stamped with H20's again. I've been asked how you do this on a few occasions so if you'd like me to do a tutorial just leave me a comment and I'll see what I can come up with. It's a very easy but really effective technique and a great use for those poor neglected pots we all have.

This second one is from the Deer plate and I love the tree branches and owl. The background is sprayed distressed inks and the stamps have been black embossed.

It's been a hectic weekend in The Craft Garden as we approach the last week of DD's Primary school life. There are parties, a talent show, a drama production, a leavers assembly and a presentation of their Northumberland week to look forward too and I'm expecting many tears!!!

It's the party tonight so I've been making buns using up all that bright icing left from the Wedding cake last week and helping to make a fancy dress costume. She wanted to be the Olympic mascot, Wenlock. I have to admit having to google it but here's what we came up with!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a good week. I'll be back on Wednesday with some pics of that Wedding cake!!

Two more gorgeous cards using these stamps! Love them and the H20 stamping and I, for one, would like to see a tutorial please. I think I have a pretty good idea but have never tried it so a few tips from an expert would be very welcome.

Love the Wenlock costume! The torch is brilliant too.

That's a great costume! And yes I would love a tutorial - I'm always trying to learn new things. Haven't been in for a while but I'm catching up now.

Sally H said...

Two totally stunning cards. I love them both, and you are really tempting me with those stamps now! The Wenlock costume is amazing! It is very hectic for our year sixes this week too. When Meg left primary school we found some bottles of beer for her teacher called Roaring Meg! (there were tears, so it was very apt!)

Beryl said...

Fab cards and yes please - if you get a chance to do a tutorial that would be great.

These are great cards, Lisa! I noticed that The Gopher has got 70 already in the gallery so Sheena certainly isn't going to be short of samples!
Well done with that costume too, you've done an amazing job there!
