Winnie & Walter Re-Run Challenge


How are you? Hope you’re doing ok.

Each month Winnie and Walter have a challenge focusing on a previously released set. This month it’s Framed with Evelin T Designs

I’ve gone with a chalkboard look that was so popular a few years back. I had in mind a wall in your house complete with empty frames and flower decked walls

I’ve used the Catherine Pooler inks available from Winnie and Walter – such vibrant colours and juicy inks !

I used the foliage from the set alongside the flowers from the In Bloom; Victoria’s Very Merry Flowers with Lydia Evans which is so great for any occasion ( it’s really a Christmas set!)

The sentiment is from Sketchy Thoughts.

I created this project in the evening and was surprised the white ink didn’t show up. It was only the next morning that I realised it was there in abundance!! Maybe some techniques in crafting are best done in daylight!

Do join in with the sketch challenge- there’s always a chance to win!

Pop over to the Winnie and Walter blog to see what the other teamies came up with!

See you soon!

Clearly Besotted Teasers Day 4

Hello! Nearly at release day!

Today I’m showing the ‘We Go Together’ set.

This is such a fun set! I decided to go ‘designer’ with the pink gin! Not that I drink it- ( I don’t like alcohol – but that’s another story!) so knew this would be a cute pairing!

I’ve added the little hearts on acetate strips with some Nuvo Glitter drops over the top.

There are some other cute pairings that you’ll love too!

Do pop over to the Clearly Besotted blog

Then see what


and Lisa have.

It’s Release Day tomorrow! Which sets have you got your eye on?

Clearly Besotted Teasers Day 3

Hello!! Happy Saturday!

I hope you’re having a lovely day.

I said I’d be doing another version of Perfect Peonies- here’s a watercoloured version.

I firstly stamped onto a sticky note, trimmed out and masked the first stamped image, stamp at an angle and then start to colour with AquaFlows.

Once I’d finished watercolouring, I added some detailing using my Prismacolors and then flicked some watered down AquaFlow colour. Add your stamped sentiment from the ‘Scrumptious Thankyou’ set.

I love this beautiful set and have a sneaky feeling you’ll love it too!

Back tomorrow for a fun look at another set!

In the meantime, visit Clearly Besotted’s blog,



See you tomorrow!

Clearly Besotted Teasers Day 2

Hey! How are you?

Thanks for popping back .

I hope you’ve had a good look at some of the inspiring creations from the team.

Today and tomorrow I’m focusing on the same set- and doing two different takes.

Today I’m using a faux bleached effect with acrylic paints.

Using a white Snowflake Fresco paint , by adding water and taking it more transparent means it gives a bleached look and is really striking on the blue.

It’s amazing how one small stamp, stamped several times over, fills the panel. I adore this stamp set, which is perfectly titled ‘Perfect Peonies’ and can see it being used again and again.

And then onto



Pop tomorrow for a completely different look!!

Clearly Besotted Teasers Day 1!


Welcome to the Teasers for May’s Clearly Besotted release.

Today’s set that I’m showing you is called ‘Fairy Tale Princess’ and fits in perfectly with all the previous Fairy Tale sets.

I’ve just gone with the princess and made a scene with her shoes.

Having a shoe as part of the set meant with a little masking, I could create a pile of shoes!

By ruling a few straight lines and stamping the shoes on top, I’ve tried to emulate a shoe shop and the princess looks like she’s completely in her element!

I wouldn’t like to be the sales person clearing up after the princess but I wonder if the princess will just purchase them all and leave her butler to package them up and transport them home!!

You’ll love this set and the possibilities with it!

Pop back tomorrow for some florals! x

Mama Elephant Pegworks Creative Cuts

Happy Saturday!!

I actually got to play for once! It’s a rarity at the moment and I saw this die and knew there was a tonne of things this set would be amazing for. I’m sharing just one today.

The die is perfect for faux stitching, real stitching and lots more.

I purchased mine (in the UK) from Seven Hills Crafts hereFirst up. Die cut the piece ( minus the frame) onto cardstock and stamp and colour Please excuse the ‘at night time dodgy photo!’I’ve used the Nuvo Alcohol markers which are a current favourite of mine. Then trim out and arrange. The set is also from Mama Elephant ‘Pretty Lovely’ .

I hope you love the technique as much as me! Just think of all your current stamp sets that you could use with this. This would be brilliant for cards for men too. Hope you’re having a lovely weekend- I’ll be back with some more ideas with this die. Can’t you tell I love it!! 😂Kerenx
