Coloured Dry Embossing with Anna Griffin Dies

Hello dear friends and followers, hope you are all well.....today I have two cards created with my new Anna Griffin floral dies and embossing folder.
They look fabulous left just dry embossed on white card, but I thought I would try colouring them.  My first card was printed with Pink Petticoat Ombre in Dainty Daffodil. I then cut and embossed my Anna Griffin die. I coloured the flowers and leaves with ProMarkers, then added my butterfly, which is from Spellbinders Les Papillons Two. I then stamped my sentiment from JustRite 'Good Friends Labels Twenty Nine' set of stamps.....
To finish I added some bling to my butterfly and card base.....
For my second card I used Pan Pastels to colour the flowers and leaves through the die before removing the card. I layered this onto a plain piece of card, and then onto an embossed piece of card, embossed with the Anna Griffin  'Ogee Damask' folder.....
My sentiment is from JustRite 'Celebrations Labels One & Bracket Borders One' set of stamps. I stamped onto Spellbinders and added some colour with Pan Pastels.....
Thank you for stopping by today
Lots of love, Sasha x

White On White Christmas Sparkle

Hello dear friends and followers, hope you are all keeping well. And a warm welcome to my newest followers.
I've made my first Christmas card, which is really early for me, but I felt a touch of sparkle coming on as it's a bit cloudy and dull here today in West Yorkshire.
To create my card I used lots of white card, and quite a lot of Glamour Dust!! Spellbinders, 5x7 Elegant Labels 4 dies - Poppy Stamps, Blooming Poinsettia dies - A flourish cut on my Cameo, and my sentiment is from Flourishes 'Naturally Merry' set of stamps.
If you click on the picture you will get a much clearer image.....

Thank you for stopping by
Love, Sasha xx

Flourishes Beautiful World Tour - English Rose

Hello dear friends and followers. Sorry for my lack of blogging this past week, we took a short break.
 Today, being the first Monday in August, it's time for another Beautiful World Tour. If you're on track, you should have arrived here from Bridget's blog in beautiful Northern Ireland...but if you get lost along your way you can start your hop back at the Flourishes blog in Florida.
By joining in with our tour you get the chance to see some of the beautiful Flourishes stamps used by the designers, and by leaving a comment on each designers blog by 31st August, you get the chance to win a FREE Flourishes stamp set!!! 
This month Naomi is our lovely hostess and she has asked us to create something with the flower that represents our country.  For me it had to be the English Rose, and I chose a lovely pink one within a sweet bouquet...
My image is from Flourishes 'Roses are Red' collection of stamps.  I did use this stamp before for a red rose, here...so this time I chose pink! I coloured my image with markers and I also used some dimensional paint for my viola centres and berries. I inked the edges with Spun Sugar distress ink.
My sentiment is from Flourishes 'Old Tea Rose' collection. 
I used quite a few layers, created with dies and some embossing. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
Thank you for stopping by! Your next stop along the way is Naomi's blog in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
