Hello Everyone,


Well the fine sunny weather has disappeared and the rain is here again, brrr cold too!! So I am staying in the craft room with Toby with the heater on.


So while I was here, I made a card for you.




I have had this die from Memory Box for a long long time, and had not used it because when I bought it, I thought it was a cut out of a flower, but alas no, it is the negative die.  The only one I have, so it took me a lot of thinking about it to make something worthy of it.  Simple but stylist, almost Clean and Simple for me.


Yest just black and white, A6 size card with a thin border of black and an embossed panel, then the negative die cut with a label to frame it.  Usual ribbon treatment and bow, couple of butterflies and that lovely little B Size stamp from Stamp-It Australia.


Hope you like it.


Hugs 🙂

Hello Everybody!


Freezing cold today with the wind coming off snow nearby, I am thinking that Winter is having a last shake before she says goodbye! 


So I have been playing with some inks.  Yes Ranger Distress Inks and sponge applicators to make a stunning background.




This first one is just a blend of Vintage Photo, Dried Marigold and Mustard Seed.  Starting with the lightest across the centre of the card and blending up and down, then the next colour spreading further up and down, and then the Vintage Photo at the top and bottom and a little down the side edges.

Then the exciting bit, the stamping of that fabulous Windmill stamp from Kaszazz and the Happy Birthday from the set from  Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Simple Sayings.




Then this one is done very similarly with the base card inked again with the same 3 colours and then spritzed with water.  The panel is inked and then stamped with the beautiful Stamp-It Australia Stamp Tranquil Dawn and the Simple Sayings Happy Birthday.




Same colours of ink again, this time the background is a circular one with pale surrounded by darker and the edges with areas of pale.  The Lucy’s stamp Large Tiger is stamped and then masked so that the Bamboo can create a background with repetitive stamping.


Hope you like them as much as I like playing with inks!


Hugs   🙂

Hello Everyone,


Another beautiful day here today and it is fabulous looking out my windows while I craft away the morning 🙂


So here is a card I made the other day with a new Joy Craft  Butterfly Border, it is so beautiful, so I had to put glitter on it to make it more special.



I love this Joy Oval frame, it sets the sentiment  so well and the new flower dies are awesome 😉


Hope you have a great day.  Thanks for calling in.


Hugs 🙂
