You're COOL!

 It's Word Week at Just Us Girls and our Host Cecile
has chosen a pretty special one - FRIENDS.

While I was going through my stamps to find
a Friend word I came across this really 'cool chick'
from STAMPlorations - perfect for something
a little different to the soft feminine card I was planning on.
Went rummaging in my bits box to see if I had a
background suitable - yep found the one I used here
and the colours are soft and feminine-ish.
She was heat embossed in black 
as were the 'cool' sentiments.
Added part of the CUTplorations Clustered Heart Die
covered in Cosmic Shimmer's Frosty Heather.
A pearl holds her scarf together.
Finished with adhering to card stock that blended
with the background.
Head over to Our Blog to see what's in store for you
from the Team and come play with us this week.
Thanks for visiting.

It is such a sweet stamp and makes for a card
for any occasion. 
I went with the sentiment that goes with the flowers.
Heat embossed and coloured with Tim's Oxide Inks.
Using the same inks I made my background.
I then die cut a corner with a

NOTES for 2022

The Design Team at Creative Artiste Mixed Media 
are back for 2022 and for my project I thought I would make
a cover for an old shorthand pad that has been 
lying around for ages.
It is going to come in hand for all the notes I try and jot down
as I create for Design Team Projects or
just for my own reference.

Here's how it began
I cut out a piece of wc paper to adhere to
the front of my notebook.
Inked the AALL&Create Stencil
in Peacock Feathers, Spiced Marmalade
and Ground Espresso in different directions
adding more stamping and stenciled around the flower
with texture paste and again in ink
I cut out a second flower head
from Visible Image Creative Chaos
using the same oxide inks and adding shine
with Ranger Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint
which didn't crack very well.
Decided to add some Art Alchemy Peacock Wax to the 
centre of the flower and some beads 
and a scattering of prills.
Die cut my Notes from an old CB alphabet die
onto a leftover scrap piece and adding a few more prills.
This was popped as was the flower head.
Glued to my notebook to complete.
This was a whole lot of fun.

Here are the stencils and stamps I used

Pop over and see what my Talented Team Mates
created this month and we would love to see you
add your project to the Gallery.
