Purple Cows love on Valentines day

Hi all Michelle here with my little corner of the pasture for this week over at Purple Cows! So have you seen all the udderly cool new toys coming out of the ranch in April? The craft Geek range is about to hit and you can check it out in all its purple gorgeousness here.

I knew you would be gone a while once you clicked the link, excited? I know I am and I have been lucky enough to get to play with some of the new lovelies already. This ....

... is an ATC I have just made using the ‘punch it’, the ‘wind it’ and ‘roll it’ (such cool names!)

Using the dots ‘roll it’ ball I created a texture on the background of my ATC by rolling it round a colorbox ink pad and then rolling it around the card, and look you can even write with this beauty ... oh the possibilities!! The ball is so easily changed so you can use the other lovely patterns available.

Then moving onto the ‘punch it’ I created a complete pattern on a slightly lighter red coredinations card. I used the winter pattern; it is so easy to line up to create an infinite number of patterns.

I then cut out half a heart from my punched card and look you can create your own doyleys in whatever colour you want to create whatever shape you want!

This was followed by creating a smaller heart from white card and using the ‘roll it’ with the heart ball and some red colorbox ink to create some texture and then it was the turn of the ‘wind it’ to create a metal embellishment threaded with some red coral chips. Such a cool way to create metal embellishments for your work!

Adding some cosmo cricket tiny alphas finished of my ATC which is now destined as a topper for the front of my hubby’s valentines card but heh love is not just for the 14th of February right?!

If you clicked on the link to see all the new goodies or you saved it until the end of the post you will see 2 more ATC offerings from me in the catalogue. This one .....

‘Silent sea’ using the ‘roll it’, the ‘wind it’ and of course my all time favourite Purple Cows tool the freestyle mouse, and this one ....

‘I craft therefore I am’ using the freestyle mouse and the ‘pin it’ as featured by the lovely Robin last week, now we have the ability to staple ANYWHERE on a piece of work, even slap bang in the middle of a 12 x 12 scrap page .... how cool is that?!
