I am sorry for my long absence here - I have been suffering from terrible all day morning sickness and have not been able to work at all. I am sure that those of you who have followed me for a long time will have guessed I am pregnant - my previous two long absences have been for the same reason. :)

So, just letting you know that I am working hard to get back to normal round here, and am hoping to be able to start creating again soon.

Thanks to help from my family, my shop is finally open again, though products may be out of stock longer than usual... Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience. I will get things going again properly as soon as I am able.
Thank you so much for your patience.

Hero Arts Color Layering Blog Hop with Giveaway

Hello, and welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts Color Layering Blog Hop.
Hero Arts have just released a new catalog with a really fun concept. They asked each of the Hero artists to choose their favourite 4 inks to go with a specific stamp set, and then they created fun 4 ink cube packs with the resulting recommendations. 
Here's the stamp set I worked with, and the ink pack I designed - Lucy's Floral Favorites... perfect for Spring and Summer cards. The ink and stamp packs are available separately or as a bundle.
And here's the card I created with it...

I love these colours and reach for them regularly... so very pretty.

I stamped and watercolored my animals, adding Star Dust Stickles for some sparkle. I added a stamped sentiment from Thank You, along with the You Word die which I die cut from black card and coated with more Stickles.

Please Forgive Me

Hello again, today I have my second Clearly Besotted Stamps teaser card to share with you, and today's card features Forgive Me, a mini set with gorgeous florals and pretty mixed font sentiments.

I stamped my flowers on some rustic card in Hero Arts' Fresh Peach and Soft Cantaloupe Ink, adding the dots with Light Ruby to Royal Red Ombre ink. I stamped the sentiment, then added Wink of Stella details and some sequins from my Pink Lemonade Shaker Selection.

Birthday Wishes

Just popping in to share a sunny and happy birthday card created with some fun Simon Says Stamp products.
Birthday Wishes by Lucy Abrams
To make the card, I die cut three Stitched Daisies from some MFT patterned paper and adhered them together, adding a Sparklet to the centre for a bit of bling. Next, I trimmed down some more MFT paper (love this pad), and stitched some coordinating polka dot strips  down the side. I die cut the Painted Happy Birthday from black card, adhered it to the card and stamped a sentiment from Best Hugs below. Finally, I added the flower.
