Shades of teal


Hi Everyone
I loved yesterday's card so much, that I made another one in the same style
My stamp is unknown, and if anyone does know it I would love to know the details.
I stamped with Brilliance Graphite black and clear embossed.
The colouring was done with Memento teal zeal and two different Inkit ink pads. I smooched them onto my TH glass mat, added some water, and used a paint brush to colour
I have again doodled around the image, trimmed and mounted onto some teal card and adhered to a white card base

Another Merry Christmas


Hi everyone
This scan looks as though the right side of the card has been trimmed wrong, but I can assure you it is correct IRL!

I have directly coloured with Memento dewdrops (thank you Chris Dayton) in Bamboo Leaves and Lady Bug, my 2003 Penny Black stamp called Brush Holly
I have done some doodling around the image following a tutorial by Natasha Foote, a fellow Kiwi

Hi, another Christmas card today

I have used a stencil (unknown) and Memento Bahama blue to make my pretty snowflakes.

I then ran it through my cuttlebug using a swiss dots embossing folder.The red sticker was adhered to a scrap, and the edges coloured with the stamp pad too. I ran the stamp pad around my base card which was white, to frame the embossed piece

Christmas Wreath


Another Christmas card for the box!

I have used a very old stamp (I think from PSX), stamped with Versamark and embossed with white detail embossing powder, as was the Merry Christmas messsage

I have used red Kindiglitz on the berries and added a wee bow to finish

Coffee Break


Back again this evening with my entry for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers hop

I have used a delightful digi from Stamplorations and coloured it with Promarkers. I trimmed down to an oblong to fit on my card and sponged the edges with DI walnut stain. I printed the words with my PC

Hello all

I am sorry that my image is not very clear.

I have used designer papers from Kaisercraft pad called 'Bonjour' I love the soft colours of these papers.

I have added a strip of lace where the papers meet, and also some flowers from my stash and diecut leaves

Merry Christmas


Another Christmas card from me today
I watched JoFY on FB showcasing her Let it Snow stamp, but I liked the idea so much I went ahead and followed her idea using what I had.
I cut my kraft card slightly smaller than my white card base. I found a scrap of vellum in my 'bits' box, stamped the sentiment, embossed with white detail EP, and wrapped it around the kraft piece
I then splattered with some watered down white ink, then attached the snowflakes. I coloured only the Merry in a blue pen and added some blue gems too

Best Wishes


Hello and Welcome

Today's card follows the sketch from MFT
I have used a pretty soft green DP for my background and cut the strips from some white canvas that was amongst the jumble on my desk
The flowers and bird are from a packet of ephemera from Ultimate Crafts, and the sentiment is from my peeloff mountain

Hi There!



Today's card follows the colours from MFT and also their sketch

I hand punched the circles that are around the sun, and used diecut ephemera from Cocoavanilla, which is an Australian company
