starting with an apology that i have not blogged recently, nor have i taken part in the design team challenges for the Stamp Man recently. i have just been in a bit of a personal situation recently and had no inclination towards being inky and crafty.
however i have recently discovered a new passion --- Spellbinders!!
watching the amazing Sue Wilson [see her blog HERE] recently on Create and Craft i was just blown away at the totally beautiful cards she makes using spellbinders, and she said that it was possible for anyone to produce them using these dies and embossing folders. so i decided to get the overdraft utilised and bought myself some of the latest releases which are quite stunning. and now im hooked!
these 2 cards are incredibly easy to make using the new extendable backgrounds and the new flower die along with various other pieces.
i have been using black, grey and cream a lot for these cards.
lots of my embellishments, sentiment stamps and goodies are from sam poole's Creative Studios - another recent addiction. check out what she has in her store HERE.
a complete change in my usual style but it works for me at the moment as i am in a bit of a sombre head space.
more to come
thanks for looking x
