Tale ......


Made an Artist Trading Coin with a fairy tale ending ..... it's 2.5 inches in diameter.....

I die-cut the base from re-cycled food packaging and then used a butterfly stamp to stamp on paper multiple times with distress inks in green, red & black and then with a blue Versafine Clair ink pad. 

I have then added some white and gold penwork along with some white splashes. The words were applied in the centre and edged with black Posca marker and three self adhesive pearls were applied.

I went around the edge of the coin with a Krylon gold pen to finish the coin.

Love ......


Made another Valentine suitable card .....

I used a 5 x 5 inch white card base. I then cut a smaller matt from watercolour card and coloured it with pink watercolours .... allowing it to dry completely before edging with gold Krylon pen. This was then applied to the card front.

I stamped the heart (Chocolate Baroque) in glamourous Versafine Clair ink on white card and heat embossed with clear embossing powder before trimming out and selectively colouring some of the design with a gold pen.

I then used some fine metallic gold thread and placed this behind the heart which was mounted on foam pads as shown. I then die-cut some mini hearts and applied to the card front.

The 'Love' (PaperTrey Ink) was stamped in more Versafine Clair on white card, heat embossed as before, trimmed and edged with black ink and applied as shown to finish the card ......

Heart ......


Made a card which could be used for Valentines day .....

I used a 5 x 7 in white card blank. I then cut  a matt from cream watercolour card and into this die-cut a square stitched edge aperture. I then die-cut a red heart from red flock card and applied onto the cut-out.

I then used a score-board and scored 4 lines through the aperture. The watercolour layer was added and the square with heart added on foam pads.

I then die-cut a number of leaves in white and cream card, arranging these as shown under the square. A little crystal Stickles glitter glue was added on a couple of the leaves. I also added some liquid pearl dots in Champagne.

The card was finished with a love stamp in black archival ink as shown ....

Forest .....




Made a card for a Challenge with a prize over on UK Stampers Forum in the theme of 'A Walk In The Forest' .....

The card base is a white 6 x 6 inch blank. The background was made with Acrylic paints, a variety of stencils and a leaf stamp with Archival ink. I have used Posca markers to highlight areas and applied some torn spotty Washi tape. The base was then matted onto some black card to form a border.

I then stamped a tree and sentiment from Crafty Individuals in Versafine black ink on white card. They were heat embossed with clear embossing powder and trimmed out. The trees were then coloured with Distress ink washes before attaching to the base on foam pads. There are a few clear glass cabochons scattered about on Glossy Accents. The sentiment was edged with black ink and stuck in place on the card.

The base was then applied to the card front to finish .....

The image was stamped again on white card and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Elements were trimmed and applied over the original as shown. The edge of the coin was rolled in a Versamark inkpad and heat embossed with gold embossing powder (2nd image).

The coin was finished with dots of black Posca marker around the perimeter .....
