Peony Posey - IndigoBlu


Hello and welcome to you today, it is my turn to post for IndigoBlu and this month its all about flowers. I've decided to mix some older stampswith some newer ones this month.


For the main image I have used Peony Posey stamp which is a stunner and perfect for all occasions, teamed with Grandma Teacup.


For the background I painted some IndigoBlu stamping card with Grandma's Teacup. Peony Posey was stamped with Flitterglu and I added Wow super fine white embossing powder before heating it. Flitterglu is brilliant for embossing powder as it stays tacky until you adhere something to it, which means you can leave it and come back to it when your ready, be sure to clean your stamp in cold water straight away. To finish the background I took a scoochy and some white GeeSso Good and dragged it down the card,


The sentiment is from Mindfullness #1 which I stamped with Stroke of Midnight paint by adding some paint to the phat foam and using it like an inkpad. Make sure you clean your stamp straight away.


I then mixed some Stroke of Midnight paint with water and added some to the flowers to add some contrast to Grandma's Teacup.


I stamped and heat embossed part of the Peony Posey Stamp again to layer with glue gel to add some more dimension. Finally I added some Stroke of Midnight to the edge of the card.

Thanks so much for taking the time to pop by today and your lovely comments.

Butterfly Bird Box

Hello and welcome to you today. I hope you have been having lots of crafty fun since last time.
Today i'm here with a post for 

It's all about Butterflies over at IndigoBlu this month so today i've revamped a boring birdbox with yummy paints and gorgeous stamps.


I have used the stunning Victorian Garden stamp set, to change the colour of the bird box I gave it a light coat of Steam Whistle paint I didn't prime the box before so the wood grain would show through.

To add a few more grain effects I added some White GeeSso good with a scoochy.

Once dry I stamped the flowers in different colour paint all around the bottom the of the birdbox in Leather Corset, Rouge, Olive Waistcoat, Warm Tan and White GeeSso Good. I had a piece of spritzed card left over from my previous project with Lime Marmalade, Costal Walk and Marshmellow. So I stamped one of the Butterflies several times with Versamark and added fine embossing powder and heat embossed them before cutting them out.

I stamped the sentiment onto the front in Black Archival Ink and added a Butterfly inside the birdbox and arranged a few more around with glue gel.

Sometimes we need a little Courage

Hello and welcome to you today.
I'm here with a DT project for 
This month its all about stories and we would love you to share yours with us.

There was a young girl of 25 years old who was told she had breast cancer, her whole world fell apart before her eyes. She went through lots of treatment and thought she had beat it only to find a few years later it had returned and once again she had more treatment but was told they didn't think she would make it. This hit her family hard along with her very young children. She put up a fight and suprised the doctors but yet again a few year later it had come back again but she looked at her young daughters who gave her the added courage she needed to fight and do it all over again. She decided enough was enough moved herself and her daughter miles away from what she knew and set up home by the seaside to begin a new life once the treatments had finished. Since her move her life changed for the better she has had to have a few operations and now has a few health issue's but is Cancer free and very happy and she loves to craft and along the way she has meet some of the most infuluenceable people in her life today and some of the bestest friends who have made her the person she is today.
Moto: Have a little Courage as you can do it.
The Young girl is indeed Me.

Here's my inspiration this month for you.

Here's how I created it:

I added the Mulberry bush paint to the Phat Foam and used it like an ink pad to the stamp Courage sentiment from the Wordblocks #2 stamp set.

I added some Iced Pink Gem paint to some Phat Foam as before and with the Victorian Garden Stamp Set I stamped some of the flowers in both the Mullberry Bush & Iced Pink Gem.

Finally I stamped the Butterfly from the Victorian Garden stamp set and coloured it with a water brush and both the paints. To finish off I added a little twisted string and attached the butterfly with some glue gel.

There with have it.

Hello and welcome to you today.
Today i'm sharing my DT creation with you for
We are feeling or Spring like over on the IndigoBlu Blog so I couldn't resist using the gorgeous new


First I made a spritz from the New Junk and Disorderly Paint range this one is Stroke of Midnight. To make your spritz use 4 parts water to 1 part paint and if you want it darken just add a little more paint to the mix or a little less if you want it lighter. Before spritzing I masked off half the card as I only want the top blue.
 

I then did then same but with Warm Tan for the bottom of the card. 

I stamped a few of the flowers in black before stamping some more with Olive Waistcoat paint

I also used Leather Corset on some of the smaller flowers. 

I also stamped the stunning butterfly from the set with Stroke of Midnight.  I stamped a few tiny flowers in the same colour at the top of the card. I love stamping with the paints it really is effective.

Finally I added one of the setiments from the set and then mat and layered onto some IndigoBlu Black Stamping Card and attached the butterfly with glue gel.
They we have it a field in spring.

Believe In Love - IndigoBlu

Hello and welcome to you today.
We are feeling the love over at IndigoBlu this month. Seeing my first post of the month was Hearts I thought this time I would go with
 I Believe in Love.....
Do You?



 First I took a plastic ornate frame and gave it a coat of

Once dry I added some Flitterglu to some Phat foam and rubbed it all over my frame.

I then randomly added some Sheffield Steel Mega-Flakes, I didn't scoochy the flake straight away as I didn't want it to go all over the frame.

 Next I added 3 different colour Luscious Powder's with a soft brush. Once I was happy with the mix of colours, I used a scoochy on the flake to bursh of the excess. I just love how the Luscious blend so well together to create other tones.

 I mixed some Clear embossing powder with Silver Luscious powder to create my own coloured embossing powder and then stamped one of the sentiments from Wordblock #2 sets with Flitterglu.
Flitterglu is great for heat embossing as it stays tacky till you adhere something to it even then next day.



Thanks so much for dropping by today I hope you will pop back again soon.
