CC Designs again

Better late than never?

We have lots of gorgeous new releases from CC Designs, which you can grab either from our CC Designs section or in our What's New section - I am particulary loving the accessory stamps this time, after all a girl can never have enough fences can she?

Also, have you seen this gorgeous card that Fran made?

A fabulous combination of cute Pure Innocence stamps and groovy quilled flowers - so cute!

PI quilled flower girl

Hello!  Hope the sun's out where you are (it is here, though not quite the 'heatwave' that's been forecasted more of a tepid wave!)  Anyway, here's another Pure Innocence cutie ('flower girl') and she's got blond hair for a change (I tend to colour most of mine with black hair out of habit).

Also, do you see the four paper flowers I've added to the bouquet in the patterned paper?  Well, after seeing all these quilling goodies going up on the site thought I'd give it a go.

The daisy flower is just basic quilling of 6 loose circles pinched at one end to create the teardrop shape and the centre is a quilled tight circle.  The yellow and pink pom pom looking flowers are just strips I have fringed with scissors before quilling then fluffing out.  Then the fourth flower if you can call it that is the teeny tiny lilac rose bud.  You can find loads of instructions for quilling if you just google it.  Quilling is an artform in itself and you can take it to a whole other level but for me, it's just a fun way to add little embellies to my stamped images.  I think I'll be doing more of the fringed flowers as they will be great for the centres of my punched out paper flowers.  

Thanks for looking and have a fab rest of the day.

Eric & Ebony

Eric and Ebony from the Greeting Farm range are just totally Rock 'n Roll.. They are available HERE and don't miss out on the special Bryony has put up for us!

They are a total joy to colour with copics and no colours are too wild for them as you can see :)
