Welcome to my world, sometimes a little hectic but a fab place to be!

Knitting up a storm!

I’m hoping that the jumper I started this week won’t take as long as the last one I did which took two years, in my defence it was packed up after moving house for months and months!

This one is much easier though and made using super chunky yarn so I’ve got a big chunk of the back done already! It’s a self striping yarn and I’m not 100% sure I love it yet but I definitely love the colours, I think I’d like it more if it went back from blue to green etc but I think that is being a bit picky when the yarn was half price lol! I’m sure once it’s done I’ll love it and even if I don’t it’ll keep me very toasty 🙂

I’ll keep you posted on its progress….

Tatty Twinkle Sample 4

Here is my final sample for the Tatty Twinkle launch of the latest four designs.

This one was much easier than it looks, that’s the beauty of the stamps and Tattered Lace Dies! I cut an aperture in the card front with a Nestability die and also cut an aperture in a sheet of butterfly paper from the Tatty Twinkles CD Rom, I cut this to size to fit the card front and used Fotoglue to attach it. I cut the hydrangea border a few times and arranged around the aperture. I then stamped and cut out the flowers, added gems to the centre of the flowers and attached the stamped image swinging from the aperture.

I finished with a stamped sentiment, also decorated with a couple of the flowers and some Tattered Lace self adhesive gem flourishes.

Tatty Twinkle Sample 3

Here’s the full image of the third card I made for the tv launch of these stamps.

This is another quite simple card, I embossed the front of the Kraft Card card blank, inked it with Walnut Stain distress ink and then embellished using the Elegant Flourish from Tattered Lace Dies before I did some simple matting and layering and added the stamped image, this is a card where you let the stamp do the talking!

Tatty Twinkle Sample 2

Here is my second sample for the latest tv launch of Tatty Twinkles, this one uses papers from the Tatty Twinkles CD Rom, I scuffed the edges with scissors and then inked the edges.

Another thing to mention on this one is the Tattered Lace Hydrangea Border that I cut from funky foam and used as a stamp on the plain layers to add a little detail.

Tatty Twinkles, Sneak Peek!

So I thought that as the new collection launches on 13th September I ought to start giving you some sneak peeks of my samples for the fabulous new Tatty Twinkles stamp sets! I will share the full cards nearer to the time…….

I love the colours on this one, it uses an off cut of one of my favourite DCWV sheets and I just happened to have promarkers and flowers that matched! I wanted to do something different to the regular pretty colours that I use so here we go, hope you like….
