Sarah Hallam's last two Samples

I am posting today the last two samples I created for Sarah from her brand new CD above as it will be  previewed on Create and Craft tomorrow at 8am and I do so hope that you will be watching and seeing the fabulous and stunning samples she will be showing from all her Design Team and especially from Sarah herself, I can tell you she has made the most beautiful carousel and Im sure if you pop across to her website you will see it for yourself  http://www.spanglefish.com/peerlessdesigns/newreleases.asp 
and be amazed at it as I have been.
This is the first sample and Ive used a digi stamp from the CD that I have printed then coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I cut it out with one of the Octagonal Nestabiltie Die then used a Scalloped one for mount, the sentiment is one from my stash its probably a Hero Arts one though I carnt be totally sure at the moment.
The easel card is a 7"x 7" card and Ive used two of the beautiful papers from the CD, I chose a base blue one for the first layers which were stuck to blue card, the second paper on the front is another from the same set but is in a pinky colour and Ive created two squares with one of my corner and border punches this was then off set to create a star, across the centre Ive used a lace strip that has had a ribbon threaded through the centre, it was attached to the back of the first layer.
The inside is the same first paper but I have just created a strip across the middle with the same pinky paper and on top of this I have stuck the stamped sentiment. To finish of the front I have stuck my image in the centre and created a flower spray in the left hand top corner, and popped two blue gems at the top and bottom of the right hand side.


This is the second sample its a Christmas Shaker Card, and for this one I have used a gorgeous image from the CD, it looks so like a Xmas horse that I decided to use it for such, for the outside I have printed the image onto photo paper and mounted it onto a piece of red holographic card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer is another piece of the same holographic card, and on top of this I have used two papers from the same design set, a red one which I have punched along the edge and positioned it down the right hand side of the card, then on top of this I have put the second paper, and around the seam I have used a sentiment ribbon, a white one with red writing on. To finish of the front I have stuck three poinsetta's along the bottom.
For the inside I have used two more pieces of the same holographic card for the first layers and then used a further dps from the this design set, its a lovely one with a line of carousel horses along the bottom of the page. On top of this I have created a shaker, and that has been down my printing two of the horse images onto photo card, and then used one for the background and then stuck foam tape all around the four edges, then dropped some flowersoft in the middle. Then on top I have used another of the printed toppers that I have cut out and stuck a piece of acetate behind to create the shaker topper this was then stuck on the right handside  page of the inside of the card.
I do so hope that you will be watching the program on Thursday 16th at 8am and she will also be on Create and Craft again on Friday Morning the 17th again at 8am, to see what a fabulous Cd this is, Sarah is a really wonderful talented lady and I have known her for many years and have always marvelled at her work and I think you will to, though you can always buy her products directly from her website and she doesnt charge p&p which certainly helps in this day and age and you can also see her other beautiful CDs as well.

Both lovely cards - great colours. Re the potty training - he's loving going to the toilet (won't use the potty) but once he's sat down he wants to get up after 5 seconds, so he never actually does anything lol. Lisa x

Hello Shirley, I have to say that those horses look fabulous. I recently went to a fiesta in Murcia and they had dancing horses in the parade. They looked just like your cards.
