Fabulous .....


Made a card using AAll & Create stamps and die-cuts ......

I stamped the girl on a Gelli Background with Versafine Clair black in, coloured with watercolour brushpens and trimmed this out. I matted onto black card and trimmed to leave a black edge. The eyes are adhesive pearls coloured with Posca pen.The dress was covered in green decoballs applied on Glossy Accents.

I die-cut a white card square and applied some green acrylic paint with the brayer. Onto this I attached a die-cut and some numbers. I coloured with Posca pens and some more decoballs. The numbers were edged with grey Inktense pencil and spread with a waterbrush. I then stamped with a couple of stamps and Distress Oxides in red and orange.

The panel was edged iin orange Versamagic chalk ink and applied to the white card base, the girl was added on foam pads and the sentiment added and again edged with grey Inktense pencil and waterbrush to finish .....

Made a card using AAll & Create stamps,dies, stencil and Washi tape .....

The background is a an acrylic paint Gelli print and I have stencilled circles in various shades of Versamagic chalk ink. The girls and flowers were stamped in Memento black ink and coloured with Copic markers and posca pen. These were trimmed out.

I die-cut the octagonal cell stencil and trimmed it to suit. This was stuck in place on the card as shown. I then stamped the background with numbers in Archival black, added torn Washi tape and gold lines.

I added the girl & flowers on foam pads and grounded them with Posca pen. Finally I added some gold dew-drops and metallic gems. The words were layered on black card and applied n more foam pads to finish.

Gold ......


Made this card for a challenge over on the 'Less Is More' blog .....


The card was made on a pure white square card blank and I decided to go for the Red & Gold .... I took a piece of gold card and trimmed to a tall triangle. This was then embossed with an embossing folder.

Next the sentiment 'Merry & Bright' was stamped in Versafine ink and heat embossed with a red/gold Moonglow embossing powder.

I attached the tree as shown and die-cut a number of red glitter stars which were applied on foam as shown.

Leaf .....


Made a card using a Gelli plate print of a real leaf found on a walk in a park recently .... for sale in my Etsy Shop .....

I made the background with grey and mustard acrylic paints applied with the brayer. I then applied a layer of brick red acrylic paint and placed the leaf - vein side down and placed a piece of paper over this removing all paint except that which was under the leaf. The leaf was removed carefully and the original background placed on the plate to pull the final print.

I mounted the trimmed print on white card , matted this on mustard and gold cards to form a frame and heat embossed the sentiment with red embossing powder on more mustard card. this was matted on gold card and then on foam pads as shown.

The finished front was then applied to a white card blank .......

Kisses .....


A set of ATC's made for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum ....

The theme this month is 'Furry Things'  !

I used white card (reinforced with re-cycled packaging). I stamped the cute cats (Simon Says Stamp) in black Memento ink along with the sentiment. These were trimmed out and the cats coloured with Copic markers.

I then applied a strip of pink/silver Washi tape as shown and stuck the cats over this. A couple of paw prints were stamped in pink Versafine Clair in and white posca pen was added. The sentiment was matted on pink card and applied on foam pads.

Each of the ATC's was edged with pink Colorbox chalk ink to finish .....

House .....

Made a little Christmas House ......


I made the panels from greyboard which were covered with printed papers. The roof was made from distressed corrugated cardboard.

All the panels were assembled and the roof and base were painted with white acrylic paint and treated to some clear glass glitter.

The front of the house was decorated by a stamped and die-cut deer head made from brown kraft card and applied on foam pads. A die-cut glitter snowflake was applied at the top.



I then layered up fern, twigs, pinecones, ribbon & twine using hot glue and applied this assembly below the deer head to complete the House ....

I have entered this into the Country View Challenge for November - 'Anything But A Card' Theme
