Eclectic Silhouette for AALLandCreate

Welcome, today I am delighted to be sharing with you another creation using my newly released "Eclectic Silhouette" A4 stamp from AALLandCreate. All the new products are available on preorder from our stockists which you can find HERE.
I hope you like this stamp as much as me, I am absolutely delighted with how this turned out and there are so many possibilities.
I opted to create a card using the top detail from the stamp this time around.
I stamped the imagery onto white card and kept the background predominantly black and white and then added pops of colour to some of the elements.
The silhouette could be used on its own and so could the other elements within the stamp design.
I opted for Tangerine and Magenta for my colour palette and I am delighted with the pops of colour against the black and white background.
There is so much detail on this stamp and the silhouette has a couple of words and musical notes inside the body.
I added some vellum sentiments to give a touch more interest and to give the card further texture and also included some delicate splatters of Magenta Paint.
A jigsaw piece has been included for further dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Field Notes

Welcome to my weekly post for AALLandCreate and today is a very special post as today I can showcase one of my designs using one of my new releases. You can find a list of our stockists HERE.
I have decorated a passport book using my new A4 stamp Numbered Botanical which I have to say I am absolutely delighted with. The detail is truly amazing and so many possibilites. This time around I combined my stamps with Eileen Hull's Passport Die.
I have added the stamped design to both front and back cover and the spine.
Touches of Lime paint to add just a hint of colour and I also incorporated vintage watch parts.
The watch rim highlights the detail on the fern a little further and I also incorporated some Remnant Rubs to the top of the watch glass piece.
I adore the background on this stamp and I can see me using it many times. A few delicate splatters of paint are added for further interest along with a vintage nail.
There are so many layers on this stamp and so many possibilities.
I hope you enjoy my first showcase of one of my new releases. I also incorporated my Date It Stamp to add a touch more detail to the cover.

The stamps used in my project today are shown below:

New Release AALL&Create - Tracy Evans

Hi everyone and welcome to a very special post. Today marks the release of another new range from AALLandCreate and I am delighted to have 7 stamp sets this time around.

I need to send a huge THANK YOU to Autour de Mwa and Olga without whose help none of this would be possible.

I will begin by showing you a card I have made with one of my new sets "Doodled Blooms" this is going to be a Make and Take at Ally Pally show this weekend, so if you are going on either Saturday or Sunday I would love to see you, pop by and say hi.
A few close ups so you can see all the layers in the design. I won't go into too much detail so that if you are coming to the show you can perhaps pop by and make this little card alongside me.
I have added lots of layers and I am absolutely delighted with this flower from my "Doodled Blooms" stamp set. Being a keen gardener this really has lots of potential for me.
Of course I had to incorporate a vintage nail somewhere into my design.
From this picture you can really see all the layers I have incorporated.
Hope you like my first sample showcasing one of the new designs.

Below are all my new stamps from this release.



We are also delighted to have some acrylic blocks with this release perfect for our Border and A4 stamps. These acrylic blocks have some flexibility too so that you can be sure of a good print impression, especially in the central areas of the stamp. I can highly recommend these.

If you would like to order any of the stamps, they are now available on pre order from our stockists, which you can find listed HERE.

Natures Garden

Another card this time around, a little more clean in design. I love experimenting with my card designs.
The blooms from my Natures Garden Stamp Set take centre stage here and really pop against the ore muted colours of the heart.
I began by creating my own torn heart stencil from a scrap of paper and I then blended Iced Spruce and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks over the aperture, blending the colours as I moved around my stencil.
I used my Date It stamp set as a background stamp to add further interest to the backdrop.
A touch of texture is included using Autour de Mwa's Stencil.
I gave my blooms a bold pop of colour to complement the more muted tones of my heart.
A few delicate splatters of paint and my card is complete.
I added a couple of Index Clips for added dimension.

The products used in this card are shown below:

DREAM

Welcome, today I have a card combining my Natures Garden stamp set with lots of texture along with my A4 Layered Grunge stamp.
I began by brayering a piece of white card with Lime Acrylic Paint from Dina Wakley, brayering a good layer to the card. I then added touches of Night and Turqoise to give depth to my design. I then repeated the process to add light layers of the same colours, brayering each colour lightly over the top. The paint was then dried with a Heat Tool.
I am loving these colours together at the moment and I love how each layer is visible and the touches of white lift the design perfectly.
The DREAM and flower heads have been stamped onto a piece of card that has been brayered with Turquoise Acrylic Paint.
I added some texture using Kassa's stencil and once the Texture Paste was completely dry I added further touches of acrylic paint.
I love the shading from the Night Acrylic Paint, a colour I am often afraid to use but I am really pleased with the combination here.
A touch of background stamping and random staples added to my flower stems along with delicate splatters of white paint complete my design.

The products used in my card today are shown below:
