Merry Christmas

I just love the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper with the colours of Merry Merlot, Copper, Gray Granite, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Tranquil Tide.  I almost did not want to make the first cut in the sheet of paper.  I had a good think about the design of my card before I started cutting.


I have used the Merry Christmas to All bundle for my card with some of the gorgeous Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon and a Star Wire Element.

Tropical Chic

Hi everyone, sharing a little Tropical Chic with you.




I have used a colour scheme of Petal Pink, Gray Granite and Calypso Coral.

The Corrugated Embossed piece of Gray Granite as been distressed by rubbing the White Craft Ink pad over the embossed piece .  It highlights the corrugations a little more.

The two tone effect in the flowers was created by inking up the image with Petal Pink and then Calypso Coral added using a Sponge Dauber before stamping.

The sentiment panel and leaf images were all created using the Tropical Chic stamp set and the matching Tropical Thinlits dies.

Just Add Texture

Hi everyone, I am playing along this week with the Just Add Ink challenge 'Just Add Texture'.  


I have used the stamp set Postcard Pals and coloured the image using Watercolor Pencils. The texture part of my card is the embossed piece behind the image which was embossed using the new Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The finished piece of cardstock reminds me of the corrugated iron on the sheds on our farm. 

I love the cute images in this stamp set, and they are perfect for colouring either with the Watercolor Pencils or Stampin' Blends.

Thank you for visiting,

A Little More Shimmer

Another card using the Shimmer Paint Smooching technique (that is what I am calling it as I have not found a name for it).


This one uses the Champagne Shimmer Paint with the Gray Granite, Balmy Blue and Pool Party re-inkers.

The flower and leaves are from the Falling Flowers stamp set coloured with Watercolor Pencils and cut out using the May Flowers Framelits.

Champagne Shimmer

I have been playing with the Champagne Shimmer Paint trying out some new techniques.


For this card I tipped the Champagne Shimmer Paint onto my finger and rubbed it onto a piece of Window Sheet.  I added some reinkers in the colours of Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Black Momento.  I spritz this with Isocol Alcohol (Rubbing Alcohol) and swiped a piece of Glossy White cardstock through the mix.

I swiped 4 pieces of card through the mix, getting a deep colour coverage the first time with it getting lighter each time I re-swipped.  You cannot see it in the photo but there is a great shimmer to the finished piece from the paint.

The candles and sentiment are from the Broadway Birthday stamp set.

I kept the design of the card pretty basic as I did not want to cover up the background piece.

Daisy Pillow Box

This is the card and my ladies made in class yesterday along with the pillow box that they decorated to match.



The daisy was stamped with Soft Suede ink on Whisper White cardstock and coloured with the Clear Wink of Stella pen.  




A piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper was cut out using the largest Stitched Shaped Square and layered onto a Basic Black Scalloped Square made using the Layering Squares Framelits. 

The sentiment is from the Balloon Celebration stamp set.




The pillow box was decorated the same as the card, with a piece of Gold Cord added behind the flower and leaves.  The leaves were cut using the Bouquet Bunch Framelits and the May Flower Framelits.

These pillow boxes are perfect for a small piece of jewelly, a gift card or some lotto tickets.  You get 10 in a packet for only $8.75 AUD.
