Crafty Sentiments DT Card - ATG

Good evening are you all having a good week well all the children are on holiday and it is surprisingly quiet round here think they have all picked the same week to go away.
Anyway this being Tuesday can only mean I am here with my CRAFTY SENTIMENTS DT card and challenge.
This week it is Erins first time to host the challenge so please pop along and join us.
As it is anything Goes no excuse not too. My make was for one of my nephews teachers she retire last week as the school closed for the summer holidays. She is a lovely lady and will be sadly missed. While looking through the shop for a stamp I saw this and OMG this just looked like her so had to use.
The stamp is called JASMIN CHILLING and you can find it here in the shop
 and a close up of the image coloured with promarkers 
I kept t fairly simple with 3d gloss of the image. Jasmin is sat on a background from Make It Crafty. Flowers are Prima Die cuts with gem centres. Lovely big orange satin bow. Tonic punch used on the strip of DP behind the image. DP is Minds Eye 12x12 paper. This is one of my larger cards a 8inch square
Well i hope you like as much as the teacher and my nephew was really chuffed with it as he thought it looked like her.

So onto my project I am bring you a present I made a friend for her birthday last month.


The box is from a local shop which had some lovely white flowers stamped on but the box was a very vivid blue colour so i used some watered down paint to mute the colour. I have used a Cherrylyn Flourish, flowers from wild orchid and ribbon and lace from stash. The centre of the box has a small photo section which I stamped a heart  with a little sentiment and framed it with a Marrianne Heart. 
I hope you like as much as my friend as i saw a nice picture of her new craft room and spyed my little box.

Day 2 Sneak Peep of Crafty Sentiments New Release

Good Morning I am here today with day 2 of the Sneak Peeps for the new release at Crafty Sentiments. All stamps will be released in the shop tomorrow. This has been a secret release so other than this stamp I hadnt seen any of them. I know you will be as keen as myself to see them all. So before you hop over to the blog to check them all out let me share with you mine.

Christmas Seasons July New Stamp Release- Christmas Wreath

 and a close up of this cute stamp

Ingredients to make a Christmas Wreath
Christmas Seasons Stamp, Promarkers, Modpodge sparkle, Wide Christmas Ribbon, Chipboard Wreath, String, Co ordinations Card in 2 colours, Glitter Card, Pearls, Spellbinder Layered Poinsettia Die, Marianne Designs Creatables CR1253 &LR024 fern punch
Method
First I coloured my image with my promarkers then gave alight coat of Modge Podge to seal and protect
Take chipboard wreath and wrap string around to give a base. Making a Loop at the top to hang
Die cut the 3 Large Flowers & 2 Flowers assemble and glue together with a pearl centre
Cut plenty of the foliage and glitter punched fern
Layer the foliage and glue down I used pva glue
Tie a double bow and glue with a hot glue gun
Arrange your flowers and add the glitter fern among them
Cut your image out just slightly smaller than the original size of the wreath making sure that your image is centred so it shows in the opening
When the arrangement is set turn over and add plenty of glue to the backside
Place your image down and glue in place. You can add another circle behind the image the size of the wreath to protect and give the centre strength. Wait for the glue to dry and then display your finished project.

Well hope you like and I was really pleased with the result and must say it is something I dont ususally do more a card person but enjoyed doing. I hope that the instructions are clear enough for you to try it really didnt take me very long. Might be doing a few for the teachers this year.
