Good afternoon everyone , I do hope you are all well. I have had a few aches and pains this week, but it doesnt stop me doing things, so therefore got quite a bit of crafting done while I have been sitting alot ha ha.

Here are a few cards I have made I will give you a run down on how I made each one.

The first one being very Bright yes Purple and yellow, I covered the base card in purple backing paper,all used from the Dreamees Back to basics cd rom available at www.dreamees.org.uk as are all the items I have used in making the following cards. I then cut 9 pieces of my chosen backing papers into squares, to make the faux patchwork effect, which I attached to the base card. Then I added the lace strip, across the top of the card and made a bow with the same lace,  attached this to the right hand side of the lace. I then stamped the Large Flower 2 ,again from Dreamees in the  Mustard Seed distress ink pad and coloured the centre in the same yellow, cut this flower out and attached to the main card in the bottom left hand corner, then I used embellishments with the die cut leaves and swirls again available from www.dreamees.org.uk.

 

The second card, is one of my faves I have made for a long time in my opinion. The papers are from Dreamees Elegance cd. I first of all covered the base card with the stripe backing paper which give s a lovely base to the card, I then matt and layered a piece of the pink and green paper , added it to the right hand side of the base card, then again matt and layered a strip of the backing papers and attached across the card hanging over the edge a little and then made the flag effect on each end. I cut out an oval scalloped and straight edge nestabilities die, stamped Dreamees Baubles stamp in the centre of the straight oval using Victorian velvet Distress Ink Pad, and while in the oval die I distressed the base of this oval to give a shadow effect, added glue using the quickie glue pen, added glamour dust silver to give the sparkle to the Bauble stamp. matt and layered these two ovals together, attached to the base card slightly to the left of the card. I cut another scalloped nestie out in the green backing paper and stamped the Recipe of christmas stamp again from dreamees (this stamp is amazing) added the oval to the top left hand corner of the main card. I then stamped 3, small flowers 1 in the victorian velvet cut out attached to the right hand side added 3 small green button s to the centre of each  flower. I cut 3 different sized snowflakes from Dreamees Cuttables range of cds available for the craft robo/cameo machine cutting gsd files, just rubbed the victorian velvet ink pad over them all attached these on top of each other added a pink gem to the centre. The card was then complete.

Well Hell everyone, sorry yet again for my lack of posting on my blog.

We have been really busy with getting ready for the Great British Craft Festival show in Donington last weekend, although it was a brilliant show what marred it for us was having quite alot of stock pinched, so that was a down side and very depressing for us, but hey we get up and go again and now being more vigilant and watching customers.

Anyway on a better note I have some new cards to show you what either Hayley or myself have made I hope you like them.

Also this coming weekend with it being bank holiday we are at home then back the weekend after to the Ross Papercrfat show in Sheffield.

Anyway here are a few cards for you to have a look at.

These pictures also include the stand at Donington and the new stamp baubles which is now available on the website at http://www.dreamees.org.uk

Good evening everyone, I hope you are all well.

Everything is great here, we are so busy, we have had a great show again in Birmimgham at the NMM, last saturday.

This weekend coming we are in Hull so if you are in that area pop by to the Bonus Arena for the Ross Papercraft Show, they always put on a great show with plenty of choice for every crafter.

This week I have been quite busy making sample cards for our stand at the Great British Craft Festival, at Donington in August, same again if you are in that area this is sure to be a fantastic show. Lots of celebrities will be there too.

Here are the cards anyway from various Dreamees cds, also we have a brand new cd out today called A BOYS LIFE, its a great cd for the boys lots of things on it so grab it at www.dreamees.org.uk

Hi Again crafters, I hope you are all well, and not too stuck with all this rain we have been having lately, I just wish we could have it a bit warmer and sunny, i dont want it too hot but just nice days would be nice.

Anyway today I have a card to show you from our latest cd called Christmas Memories, which you can purchase online at www.dreamees.org.uk it is £9.99 with free p and p.

This card is just a classic black and white on from me today, I have used 2 backing papers from the cd, the main topper, and sentiment.

I have used a square base card of 12cm, covered it with one backing paper, then matt and layered another onto white to leave a small border, on the second backing paper I added glamour dust to make it sparkle a little, attached this to the main card. I then cut a small piece of white card and attached some pleated ribbon from my craft stash for embellishment, used a spellbinders die to cut around the main topper to make it stand out more, then added random gems to the topper ornaments to give it some detail. Last but not least I used a sentiment again from the same cd, mat and layered up, attached with sticky pads to raise up a bit. I hope you like it.

Thank you for looking.

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all well.

We are all fine here, the weather has been really shocking just lately, I think it is the same everywhere though.

Dreamees had their best show ever at Rainton Meadows in Sunderland last sunday. It was lovely to see our customers old and new and great to hear how much they all liked our products.

Today I am showing you a pen pot, in which we bought when we were exhibiting at the Whichcraft Show in doncaster a few weeks back, Hayley has now decorated it for me using distress ink pads, dreamees Bon Voyage stamp set, isnt it just lovely. It has been made in my fave colours and stands proudly on my desk.

The stamp set you can get at www.dreamees.org.uk in the new products section.

Well thats all for now. Take care and have a lovely weekend.

Carol xx
