Country Girl Masked Step Card

Hello Everyone

I have made this step card using two of the new cuties from the country girl collection.
That I bought from Swedish house crafts.

Be warned, this post is a little picture and chat heavy, if your time is of the essence, then please click on the first picture and scroll though. 


I have used two of the country girl Tildas and my molly blooms seed tray background. 
All my papers are lemon craft and I have coloured everything with Copics.


Sitting Tilda with clogs is masked onto my Molly Bloom background. I have stamped around the edge using one of the magnolia stamps from the unicorn collection and the sentiment is from my stampelglede stamps. 


How cute is Tilda with flower in her pocket? 


I made my own tassel and as I didnt have any of the pink background paper left, I cut a white one and distressed and stamped it on both sides with pink & Cocoa pigment ink, using the same background stamp, that i have used on the image.
 Looks quite similar, there are 2 tags both cut from the same card/paper and I have tied the edges of my own hand dyed seam binding with hemp twine, one has a strawberry charm too!


There are lots of other pretty details that you can see too!

Thank you for stopping by today and have a weekend!

Sylvia Zet SCAD Card

Good Afternoon Everyone
Well, we have had a heat wave here in the UK, making it very difficult to sleep at night and are expecting thunderstorms today!!!
Fickle weather!
I have just returned home after collecting my daughter to bring home as she has now finished university, I am still a super proud mum, as I have been saying over the last three years he he!!!
Although I haven't got a clue how she is going to fit everything that she has collected over the last three years back into her bedroom.
Luckily we converted the loft (attic) recently so she can store some things up there until she decides what she wants to keep!
Anyway enough waffle, here is my card which I created with one of my SCAD stamps.

I have used one of my old SCAD stamps from Sylvia Zet, I am especially pleased with her hair, it took me a couple of hours to create all the strands and shading, but I enjoy the colouring process.

Both my designer papers are lemon craft and a gorgeous little tag from behind the image. I have distressed the image with DI's and added some shabby frantage and several cute butterflies.


I made the 3 Foamiran flowers and painted/decorated butterfly charm, I also made a little hand made decorative pin!

Have a lovely weekend,
