P1060548Hello Everyone

Today I picked up some metallic acrylic paints from Kmart and decided to test them out on this card.  IRL the bronze looks lovely and bright and shiny, but unfortunately, it doesn’t look that way in this photo.The image is from Papermania – Just for You set.  The rest of the card is water coloured using Distress Inks.

Challenges: Inspired by all the little things #64, Addicted to CAS – Florals and The Flower  Challenge – Tic Tac Toe (sentiment, white, watercolour).




Wishing you…

P1060546Hi there

My card features layers of  blended Distress Inks  spritzed with blue shimmer glitz to make a starry / misty background.  The heart uses Simon Says Stamps Stretched Heart die cut from holographic paper.  The sentiment is  Mama Elephant – Wishing You stamp set using sparkle embossing powder.

Once again it is much more sparkly IRL.  I hope this photo underneath shows it a little better.

Flower fairy

P1060550Thanks for stopping in

I had lots of fun water colouring this cute little flower fairy from the Papermania Enchanted Fairy Stamps.  I picked them up in a throw out basket a couple of years ago but have never done much with them.

The background is water coloured, spritzed and stencilled using Distress inks. I also added a little Wink of Stella.

I think she’s quite cute.

Challenges:  Just Us Girls – Color week #411, Happy Little Stampers – Watercolour -September – Anything Goes with a Spritz twist and Seize the Birthday – without the topping.

Have an OTTERLY Happy Birthday

P1060543 (2)



I’m here to share a fun birthday card I made for a very special  little girl.  It features the MFT Otterly Love You stamp set, coloured with Distress Inks.  The ‘water’ is a small sealed bag holding some blue / green hair gel to give the water a squishy effect. (I’m sure this will be very popular!). I added some coloured banners and a sentiment.


Challenges:  My Favourite Things – Sketch –  MFTWSC350, Seize the Birthday, Southern Girls – Shake Your Groove Thing, or just make it wiggle a bit,  Alphabet – Nautical and Cardz 4 Guyz – Nature.

Just a Note to Say…


This card uses Distress Inks on a clear block and spritzed with water. IRL the colours are beautiful and subtle, but look much brighter in this photo. I then silver heat embossed Penny Black -Effulgence.

The panel was then cut with MFT Stitched Strips dies.

My card is very simple using Papertrey Ink’s pretty Harvest Berries stamp set.

It was stamped in Versamark on the black background then covered with Wink of Stella to give a bit of shine.  The smaller stamp was gold heat embossed on 3 circles.
