Hello Everyone,


Pick yourselves up off the floor, yes I am back again today with another post!!! WOW, and to make it all the more special I am posting a card that I have been told is the nicest card I have ever made!!!





Teddy is a bit impressed, and he said that if I keep making cards like this he will go full time modelling for me without a whine in sight.  This is a simple easel card and the base of the card and the front is simply the three pieces of the Marianne Creatables die LR0180.  Each is cut and embosssed and then gently inked around the edges with Ranger Distress Ink Vintage Photo.  So Simple so easy.


The flowers are made with a Mariannes Creatables flower die LR 0145 and the flower die from the Mariannes Craftables CR1202.  These are so easy to put together, no stylus tool needed, just a little roll or pinch here and there and whalla a beautiful flower.


The stamps used are from Kaiser English Rose Collection and the only other embellishment is pearls placed on each scallop of the doily and a small string of pearls to help anchor the easel.


This card is being used as a demonstration of how easy cards are to make from the Marianne range of dies for Shelleys Land.


Thanks for calling in,


Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

I really am a little slack with my posting lately, have so little mojo and have searched everywhere for it, but to no avail, it is still missing.

So it took me a week to create this, or I should say it is the only thing I have created this week 🙂


But then I suppose it is very pretty.  I cannot believe that in all the months I have had the punch around the page punches, that I have not thought to make a frame of them, DUH!!

And it does make a perfect frame for the embossed/heat embossed background.  I have used a Craft Concepts Tuscan Tile EF with Ranger Distress Ink Victorian Velvet and then coated it with Versamark ink and embossed it a couple of times with clear EP to give a beautiful depth and a real tile look.  The edging is all done with a ink application tool from Ranger with the same ink.  Flower is cut from MFT die, Sizzix scroll and leaf/leaves.

Oh and I have coloured the brads with pink and then pearl EP… love doing that, never have the wrong colour embellishment this way.

This card is entered into the Twisted Tuesday Challenge this week, I for ink and Embossing Folder. 🙂

Thanks for looking in today, hope your day is going great!!

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,


Autumn is here and it is getting much cooler up the valley, but still quite reasonable here, just like late in the season should be!!


So I made a card that is a bit like me.  Vintage and getting better with the age of it.




This is just a stunner that has completely blown poor Ted away.  When I think Vintage, I think lace and pearls, muted tones, burnished edges and roses and other flowers.  I also think of script or running writing and memories to be fondly remembered.


So I took a piece of paper I got in a pack recently called Arcadia, it is a little pack about 4 and 1/2 inches by 6 and a 1/2 inches with four sheets of each pattern in it.  Mostly oldish, mostly muted and lots with flowers on them.  Perfect I thought.  And the size makes it perfect for a card, it covers the font and gives a bit left to decorate inside the card.


So I put it on a panel for an A6 size card and distessed around the edges with the  Paper Distresser and then inked it with Ranger Distress Ink Antique Linen.  Attached the ribbon along the botttom, inked that too… added the inked leafy flourish (die by Boskut) and then attached some pearl stings.  Then I inked the flowers, and popped them on.


The sentiment is by Lucy’s Stamps and is good one.  The label with the sentiment is attached with dimensional foam.  Finished off with sticky back pearls.


Hope you like it!!


Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,


Recently I got myself a Martha Stewart Score Board, now I know it is in imperial and I am a metric girl, but you know it really does not matter…. it has lines just everywhere…. and it cam with the envelope triangle thingie too!!!


So I made a couple of rosettes and a box, just because I could, and you don’t even really have to measure anything, it is all done for you.




So how cool is this??? The box is upside down in the photo, but if I rotate it, Teddy gets to be hanging from the roof and he is not good at that.


I know I have MFT rosette dies, but it is almost simpler to use the scoreboard.  I got it at over 50% off, no resistance needed.


The box has versamark resist inked with Ranger Distress Ink.  So easy, so effective.


See you again tomorrow!! hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone!!!


Quick post today with a stamp from my new Stamp-It unmounted rubber set with everything time on it.  I have wanted this for a while, so thank you Santa!




I have used Ranger Distress Ink Antique Linen to colour my base cream card. then attached some 3 inch wide cream lace.  I have cut some of those wonderful Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish and used them under the focal panel.


The focal cut with a label die and while still in the die I have sponged over with the Antique Linen.  It is stamped with a wonderful sentiment from this set in Ranger Distress Ink Walnut Stain (deep brown and beautiful), also  inked around the edge.


I have embellished with a rhinestone on the clock hands and a butterfly and flower.


Very simple, easy card.  Thanks for calling in.


Hugs :)

Hello Everyone,


Summer is here to stay I think, too hot for me.  Have to start going south for the Summer and north for the Winter.  Now that would be good, get out the Winnebago!!!


So I had admired a card on my friend Lisa’s blog with a little flower image done in resist and the panel coloured with Distress Ink.  And you know I tried and I tried and I could not get a finish like she had done.  She said easy peasy, and for me it was not….




So I used sponges, no workie, so I had a close up looksie at the Tim Holtz Applicator sponges and the penny dropped.  So I had these little flat, fine make up sponges and I thought these will do.  So I put some loop velcro on the back of them and attached one to my applicator (it has the hook velcro) and whalla, got the result I wanted.


How good is that??  So this card is started the same as my favourite types with a PATP panel that is inked with Ranger Distress Ink Aged Mahogony (beautiful) and then embossed in the centre.  You know I had the set of plates for the Quickcuts die cutter from years ago, little 4×4″ and you know this is perfect as a shim to emboss just the centre of the panel.  The thin, used to be sticky one, not sticky anymore.   I love it when I find something perfect that I already have.


Then added a piece of lace and a ribbon, double bow.  The focal panel with the magnolia on has been stamped with versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder and then coloured over with Distress Ink.  When done, the image is buffed with a tissue to remove any ink build up on it and then matted onto a scalloped oval and attached to the card with dimensional tape.


Lastly added a ribbon cut sentiment.  Like Lisa said, easy peasy when you know how!!


Thanks for calling in, hope your day is going well.

Hugs :)
