A change of direction…

 

 

Good evening all, thanks for popping by

I think I have a problem, I can’t stop buying crafty stash

As soon as I order there is something new that I like more and I must have that, I need it, and so it goes on…

sometimes, and I hope this is not just me, I see a product and have to have it, don’t even look at the price…

 

GP stamps

 

…I saw these stamps by Gabrielle Pollaco and had to buy them all. I know that I will be able to produce stunning pieces of work just like hers with them (!) and they are the next thing that I will be playing with

…unless I see something else before I get round to using them!!

I think I’m a bit done with cute for now, I’m trying some new things and I adore the Brusho powders. If you haven’t tried them they are little pots of magic, just sprinkle a few grains onto your paper and spritz with water to produce the most amazing effects like this background. This is just one colour, isn’t is a gorgeous effect with such little effort…

 

Brusho Christmas

 

This is very different for me but I enjoyed making it. I cut out 4 of the house/tree die (Memory Box) from card and glued them together so it was thick like chipboard, you can’t see on the picture. The snowflakes are Lil’ Inkers and the embossing folder is Snowflake Mosaic from Creative Expressions

Hope you like it, and I’d love to know what you think as it is such a change from my usual style

Have a fabulous weekend crafters, I’m working my way round your blogs and really enjoying having a catch up, you are a clever lot!

  2. Oh, I understand very well your problem with new craft items, Anne!!! How much "must have" every day!!! But I haven't money to buy, and perhaps this is my salvation LOL :D
    I have brushos, and loooove them! They arer magic! Your background is fantastic, and just perfect for this Christmas scene! The white design and the few elements in black look great!! Love your new style!

  3. Hi Anne, love. love your background. Hubby has bought me some brushos..yet to try, but have tried pixie dusts. I think your card is lovely and yes like you I have changed style a bit from cute and flowers, though I don't have a signature style. Looking forward to seeing what you create with your new stash. In answer to your question in your comment on my blog...yes I do live in West Yorksire......maybe we should get together and play brushos!!

  7. Fantastic card Anne! It's good to try new styles out and this has worked brilliantly. You've created a wonderful background with the Brusho powders, it looks so effective. I just love your card design.
    I'm just like you buying new goodies. I'm disappointed if a parcel doesn't arrive in the post but I have run out of space. I've just made a card completely different to my usual style with balloon animal stamps and when I showed it to my son and hubby they didn't like it and said I should stick to my usual style, talk about knocking the wind out of my sails! Ah well, I'll have to buy something else to try :D! Debra x

  8. I think we're all a little addicted to getting new stash. I have been trying really hard to use stuff I already have and not buy new stuff for a bit, and I've not been too naughty this last month, but I have to say that it is quite depressing when there are no parcels waiting for me when I get home from work lol! love your card, that Brusho powder looks amazing, I may have to succumb and buy some....I'm blaming you if that happens! ;) xx
