Well, well, well ... I have got the best news ever to share (well, for me!) - I have been asked to join the Design Team over at my favourite place on The Internet....Make the Day Special! I can't believe it, I am such a megafan of their blog, and their shop - oh my oh my - I think I own half of it haha. Pretty much my full stamp collection is from there - Tara who runs it (amazingly well, and all on her own I might add!), has THE best taste, and the prices are unreal amazing. Yes, I'm gushing, but i really really love it!!! So I obviously wanted to share my very first post here as well - and here it is :)
Jill here. I can't tell you how pleased I am to be part of this amazing and talented team, it really is a dream come true. I only hope I do you guys, and all the awesome products we all love, justice!
So, without further ado, here's a sneak peek at my first offering...
Deciding what to do for my first post was such a tough decision! I came to the conclusion that the best way to introduce myself was to stick to a couple of my, (and hopefully your) favourite things - Mama Elephant and watercolouring!
I used Mama Elephant's 'In My Heart' set, Lawn Fawn's 'Grassy Border', and 'Spring Showers' dies and a whole lot of watercolour, to create my bright Springtime scene.
I die cut my back panel into several pieces, giving each piece a watercolour wash using Distress Inks, and pieced it back together so it remained in one layer. My little cutie patooties from the 'In My Heart' set, are watercoloured, again using Distress Inks, fussy cut, and added to the front of my card using foam adhesive to really make them 'pop' off the page. I stamped out my sentiment direct onto my card, and heat embossed using a Black Sparkle powder. I finished by embellishing with a couple of bright yellow enamel hearts to give an extra splash of colour, and there you have it. The sun isn't shining up here in the North of England, so I thought I'd make it shine on my card!
I really hope you like it, and all the products I used are listed below, so go and give them a closer look!
See you all next week.
