Guest Design for Crealies

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I would like to thank all of you that follow my blog and for your encouragement in leaving kind comments.   I'm sorry that I have not been in blog land as much as I had been, but life is busier these days :) 

I was happy to create this card & tag for Crealies as a Guest Designer again.   Their products are quite beautiful my collection is growing :)

The background was created using Picked Raspberry Distress Spray along with Vibrant Turquoise Dylusions spray ink.  I spritzed with water to let it blend and blotted with paper towel.   I sprinkled a little Turquoise and Purple Brusho ink powders and spritzed with water again.

Next I stamped with Bits and Pieces No 26 - Splash with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.  Then using Crealies Stencil No 20 (circles) I added more Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and white Acrylic paint.

The Flower Die Set of 3 No 17 and Uno Flower No 17 were die cut on white cardstock.  I blended Blueprint Distress Ink on the ends and molded with a stylus and mat on the back.  I also rounded the petals on the stylus.   I added parts of Duo Die No 20 and Decorette No 11 - interlocking circles.

I also made a little tag from the left over background.

And here is a close up of the flowers.

I used the following products:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day


  1. Really beautiful creations. Love the background you created. Skipper said to tell Archie he could come over and enjoy the warm sunshine we are having. Purrs.

  2. Another lovely card and bookmark Shirley. I love the colours that you've used and the die cut circles work beautifully with the stenciled circles. I really love your flowers too, they are coloured beautifully, as always. I remember a comment that you left on my blog a short while ago and life does get in the way sometimes but I hope you can find a little peaceful time for yourself. Sandra xx

  9. Beautiful work, Shirley. Love your use of colours, always shiny and bright.
    Think a lot of people use all different kind of social media, like facebook and all kind of different groups.
    It gives you more time to create and a post on it is quicker.
    I have the same problems.
    Only when you take part in a challenge you have to link your work from blogger!
    I will follow you anywhere,
    Have a nice weekend.
