Katy Sue Green Man mould

I've just been looking through some of my draft posts and there's quite a few that I really should blog - including this pencil pot made for hubby's 60th - nearly three years ago now!!  I rusted up the tin with some Rust Patina Paint and Treasure Gold Waxes.  The Green Man mould is a fabulous one from Katy Sue Designs made with airy dry clay and then rusted and waxed again.  The clay has cracked a litttle but I quite like the aged feel it gives.
I also decorated a note book for him below.

Finally, after giving it a proper clean(!) I used it with cake decorating clay  for his cake.

You can find the mould here at Katy Sue Designs.

More birthdays this week - my daughter's partner, and our Violet's 7th who's having a crafting and nature party at ours!  I'll see you on the other side!

Hugs, Juliexx

Passion for Markers Colours of Spring

Well it's snowing up here in The Lakes today so not very spring-like but hopefully the Passion for Markers challenge this week can give you a feel of spring!  Yes, our fabulous Sue has chosen a theme of the Colours of Spring.  I've used these pretty papers called Springtime to take my colours from with a pop of pink for this cute image from Stamping Bella called Girl with a Snow Drop - here at Dies to Die.

I've also used this cute frame set from Marianne Designs - you get the frame, stitched circle die, two dragonflies and the little petals for the flower but you could also use them as leaves - I think it's a really versatile little set. All the deets of Marianne Products below.

Marianne Products Used
Circle Frame, Flower and Dragonfly set - LR0795
Parasol Die - COL1520
Sentiment - Hello Spring and Easter - CS1044
Arrow Banner - Banner Set - CS1058

Our sponsors are the fab online store that is Dies to Die For - I actually bought this Stamping Bella image  here from them a few years ago at a show.  They are offering the very lucky winner and amazing £15 voucher to spend in their store - wow!

Don't forget to check out the beautiful makes of my PFM teamies here.  And don't forget you must use markers of some type on your card and tell us which ones you have used to be eligible for the prize draw.

A very Floral Frieda

Another Frieda card using the Craft Stash stamp set- this time for my M-I-L's birthday.  Layered onto this beautiful Marianne XL Floral die, CR1586, and then onto an inky background, prepared earlier.  The flowers are various from stash, including some vintage pansies, which were probably from Renee in the first place!  

I added a few crystals and sentiment from the Frieda paper set and done!

Hope the snow is not causing you too many problems.  I travelled down to see my Dad in Norwich a couple of days earlier than I intended - happy I did as I think they closed the A66 snow gates this afternoon!

Keep warm!
