Morning folks, just popping in to share my samples for the Katy Sue Release which is being aired on Create and Craft tomorrow. It' s a new Christmas Angels pad that can be made into fabulous Christmas cards and can also be used with the wide range of MDF products that Katy Sue offer.
I love the blue palette of the pad, but there is also some purples and yellows too! And aren't these deer images so cute!!
Just to show there's some colour variation, I brought out the pink of her waist ribbon, by using some Katy Sue snowflake peel offs as masks then inked the paper with pink ink! I further brought out the pink shading the flowers and dies with pink too.
For this MDF star. I cut one of the angel images out, using the centre star as a template. I've then added Frantage Shabby Blue enamel to the base star and round the edge of the image. Perfect as a gift for a Christmas baby!
I'll have some more samples to share with you tomorrow - don't forget to tune into the shows on Create and Craft at 10:30am and 3pm tomorrow with Dawn Bibby.
Isn't this new winter image from Mo's Digital Pencil delightful! He/She is called Walking in Winter and can be found here in Mo's store.
I've coloured the image, using my favourite blue combo, coloured the night sky masking of the moon shape which I've then used some Shabby White Frantage for a bit of sparkle. I've continued using the Frantage for falling snowflakes and I've also added some white gel pen to further enhance the snow.
The snowflake border and snowflakes are Marianne Dies as are the enamel dots, and the background paper. The side border paper was from my scraps. And the sentiment comes with the image so I remember to add it to the image before printing!!

It certainly feels like the weather is on the turn at the moment - just not quite winter, thank goodness!
I made this wreath using a gorgeous set of ready die cut flowers from Katy Sue Designs. They''re so nicely cut and so easy to use.
To make my wreath, I used some large circle dies on some Katy Sue Grey Board - it's construction grade so gives you a really nice firm centre to the wreath. I then cut out two further wreath shapes in in white card to cover the greyboard.
Once I'd pressed out the flower layers and leaves from the sheets, I inked all the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink to give them an aged look. I then spent a little time shaping and curling the petals with a ball tool. I then made the flowers by layering up the petals remembering to place the petal layers in between each other to give depth to the flowers.
Before fixing the flowers to the wreath base, I punched a hole at the top and looped in some
co-ordinating ribbon to hang the wreath. I then arranged the flowers and leaves until the wreath was filled.
As you can see from the picture of the flowers on the sheets, you can really change the feel of your make from cool and pretty to aged and shabby, so they really are versatile and saved on a whole load of punching out or die cutting flower petals!
Hop on over here to the Katy Sue site to find the flowers.
