Book the sofa ...... grab the remote control ...... Sweet Poppy are back on the TV

Happy Wednesday ........

What's everyone up to this week? I hope you're having a good one.

I just want to give you a quick reminder that the lovely Lucy Ellis and Sweet Poppy Stencils will be back on our TV screens again this week.
There'll be some brand new stencils ....... everyday designs and possibly a touch of dare I say it .....Christmas! along with some old favourites and back in stocks  There's some brand new products too ..... exciting stuff!  And, as always great tips and demonstrations from Lucy.
Book the sofa and the TV remote NOW!  Or ..... if you can't watch live, set the shows to record.
Friday August 11th ....... at 12 and 4pm ........ on Hochanda Sky Channel 663/Freeview 85/Freesat817

Here's a little look at one of the new designs that's on the show ....... the gorgeous Mehndi Flower ..... how pretty is this!


A great size too ...... use the whole design to create stunning cards.
Classic black and white for that elegant look........


Glossy black paste onto plain white cardstock ..... simple


With just a touch of gold embossing to make it extra special ......


A few tiny gemstones for added sparkle ...... and a bit of matting and layering to frame the image


 Here I've used the same stencil ..... but created a totally different look .....


Add a bit of colour to the background ..... I used Distress Inks simply brayered onto a piece of white card


White paste this time through the stencil, and one of the gorgeous fine glitters from Sweet Poppy sprinkled over the top whilst the paste is still wet.

I used the same paste and glitter for the Inspirational Word down the side too ......


The Sweet Poppy glitters are super fine and they sparkle beautifully .... and there's lots of beautiful colours to choose from too .... this one is Penny Copper


Don't just use your stencils for the focal point on your cards ...... create interesting backgrounds with them too .......


I've used just part of the Mehndi Flower randomly on the edges of the black layer of card, with the black paste, to add a bit more interest to my design .....


Use your stencils with your patterned papers .......


I did a workshop a few weeks ago using patterned papers ...... even the ones we didn't like!  This is another version of one of the cards we made
We all have patterned papers that we love .... and don't use!  We also have some designs that are not so well loved.  Don't just throw them out or leave them on the bottom of the pile ........ cover them up a little and change the look ......


Use pretty stencil designs, and add a bit of glitter ......


Throw in a bit of rubber stamping, a sentiment too ........


Ooooh .... have you spotted one of the brand new products there ....... look at the bottom of the sentiment banner .... tiny 3D cement balls.  How cute are those ..... and great for adding texture to your projects.
I simply used my finger to apply a little bit of glue to the edges of my card, sprinkled on the tiny balls and left them to dry.  Once they were dry I gently rubbed over the top with a little White Fire Treasure Gold ......


If you click on the pictures you'll be able to get a better look at them! I can't wait to have a proper play with these ...... most of my samples were finished when they arrived but I had to use them somewhere!!!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.
It's time I made a start on tonight's meal .... hubby will be home soon!
I'll be back tomorrow though with a few more ideas for using your Sweet Poppy Stencils ....... I think we'll go a little bit festive maybe.

Cheerio until next time ........
