Wishing You the Joys of Christmas

P1060875 (2)

Hello Everyone,

This is one of my first Christmas cards featuring Papertrey Ink –  Year of the Flowers – Poinsettias. They are stamped and watercoloured in gold Delicatta Ink on both card and on vellum.  I bought this set years ago, but it is still one of my favourite stamps.

I stamped one large and two small on white card and one large and two small on Vellum, then fussy cut and layered them onto the front of the card. (The top small flowers have only the inner row of petals).  The sentiment from Kaisercraft is stamped inside the card, using Brilliance Lightning Black Ink, so it can be viewed through the die cut window. The dies are from a set called Simply Dies form Catchy Crafts.

Celebrate – Stars Background


These cards came about as I was in need  some male cards.

My cards feature several stamps from different sets to form a bright and rather busy  background. I finished  them with stars die from Poppycraft and Celebrate from My Favorite Things which I layered up with some coloured fun foam.

Happy Birthday – Leaves




My card tonight features MFT leaf dies.  The background was the result of some fun playing with Distress Oxide Inks with layers of smooching and finishing with some gold paint flicks.

IRL the colours are really pretty.  It’s just a shame they have bleached out a bit with the flash.  😦

Hello again

This card features Poppycraft’s Dreamcatcher die over a Distress Ink watercolour background. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession -Birthday Top Edgers.

I finished with some silver acrylic paint, Delicata silver ink, and Nuvo Crystal drops.

I always love a navy and white combo and a little silver is just so much better!!! 🙂

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).
