Good morning my dears,  I'm here to share this cute altered paper gift bag
for our  current challenge over at

I've inked up 3 stamps from the I believe in Unicorns collection 2017

coloured them with Copics and Derwent soft pencils.  I also used
the Text from Yay it's your Birthday  collection 2017 and popped it onto a Tonic die.
My Tag is the Oh so Lovely heart Doohickey die.
 Papers are a selection from Maja Designs,  Summer Crush, 
Coffee in Arbour and  Vintage Summer basics.


I love love love this collection (didn't buy it when it was released) but popped
over to Magnolia Sweden Boutique store and they were all there so they kinda
fell into my basket along with quite a few others.

Scrap & Craft Inspiration DT - Foamiran flowers - All shapes and colours!!!!

Hello my dears,  I'm sure that mot of you know how much I love my Flowers when
crafting and adding them to cards/boxes/canvases/home decor etc.  Well I've had
a lovely few days using up some of my Foamiran and experimenting with various
dies and pastel oils.  Wallah!!!!!  Here is the end result.  

Shades of Pink

I started off with  2 sheets of White Foamiran 3 different dies, and three different shades of oil pastels.  I used various flower dies from my stash (which I have far too much of) 
to cut the shapes before moulding them to the required shape.
The flowers on the left are Salmon Pink,  the centre ones are pastel baby pink  
 and the flowers on the right are Raspberry pink.  I used mostly products from



Blues & Yellows

I used 1 sheet of White Foamiran and moved on to pastel lemons,
 blue and canary yellows for these flowers
Once again I used 


Golds & Lilacs

These two flowers are HUGE!! the die used is the largest Rosy Dot flower die
 designed by Aga C.  I used half a sheet of Foamiran and coloured the centres
 with Gold pastel oil and  some of the petals with pale lilac


White Poinsettias 

There was no colours added to these flowers, they are just perfect in white.


Hues of Blues/Pinks/Lilacs

Last but not least a mixture of colours using white Foamiran and pastel pink Foamiran.
I used  pale pink, lilac and blue oil pastels to colour them. 




Thank you so very much for popping in to visit,  I hope I have inspired you
to try Foamiran using some of the flowers dies I'm sure you have in your crafty stash.
