Not A Single Stamp!


I think this paper speaks for itself and rather than obscure the beauty of the paper I opted for just a simple strip of dotted paper and some flowers from my stash.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree…….


I love this tree stamp from Magenta.  I coloured with Prismacolour pencils and Taltine and added some gold Liquid Pearls.

HPIM1809-1 HPIM1805-1  HPIM1807-1 HPIM1808  

I so love my Rubbermoon stamps and these 4 cards were such fun to make.  All of the images were coloured with Prismacolour pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits.  I find that Prismacolour pencils really are the best pencils crayons for this technique.

Have a super day!

Twinkling H2Os

HPIM1798 HPIM1791 HPIM1792 HPIM1793 HPIM1794 HPIM1795 HPIM1796 HPIM1797

I was definitely on a roll when I did these cards.  I followed the same process for each of them; painting  the rubber stamp with H2Os, slightly misting with a mini mister and then stamping on to white cardstock.  My Cuttlebug definitely got a workout  too.  LOL

I think I like the last one the best.  How about you?  Do you have a favourite?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

My Oasis


This is a page I did in my Art Journal.  I started by applying a coat of black acrylic paint to the page and once that was dry I combined flower stencils with hand-drawn flowers.  The flowers were first done with a lead pencil.  I then painted them all in with my “Twinks” (H2Os).  To finish the piece off, I outlined the flowers with black and white markers.

I’m really pleased with the end result.  What do you think?

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day!

How many of these can I whip up?


I SO love this stamp and am wondering how many different colour combinations I can come up with.  I was doing a happy dance whilst colouring her.  Like yesterday’s card, I stamped with Memento ink on smooth cardstock, coloured with Touch Twin Markers and added a bit of Prismacolour pencil to highlight.  And of course, I had to use some Stickles and Glossy Accents.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!

‘Tis that time of year once again!


Jumping on the band wagon with Christmas cards and I decided to go with non-traditional colours for this one. 

I stamped with my fave ink (Memento), coloured it with Touch Twin markers and highlighted with Prismacolour pencils and to finish it off, added some Stickles.

Do I like it?  Yup!

Coffee with a Friend



I absolutely love this stamp and it was such fun to colour up with my Touch Twin markers.  

I decided it looked best on a smaller card and this one measures 3.5 X 5.5 inches.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Quilt Card


This is a 5 X 5 card I made using some scrap cardstock which I ran thru my Cuttlebug and I added a little patterned paper.  It’s nice to use up some of the scraps that build up SO quickly.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a nice day.

A Day of Colouring

HPIM1774 HPIM1770 HPIM1771 HPIM1772 HPIM1773

Sometimes is just nice to sit and colour the hours away.   Here are a few images I coloured up using stamps from one of my favourite stamp companies, Rubbermoon.   These images will eventually be used for ATCs or a card or two.

Another Stamping Bella

Daisy Bloom


At least I think that’s her name. LOL.  I coloured her in with Touch Twin markers.  The image is cut out with Nestabilities and I added some Stickles to the background. 

Have a super day!

5 min. card


I just love this piece of 6 X 6 Basic Grey Wisteria patterned paper needed absolutely nothing, other than the stamped sentiment that I added.  Talk about quick & easy!

Thanks for visiting!

Coloured Embossing Powders


I seldom use my coloured embossing powders.  Actually, heat embossing is something I rarely do.

For this card I stamped the image (stamp unknown) on a piece of matte, silver paper, added some blue embossing powder from my stash and heat embossed.  I layered the stamped image on to silver, mirror cardstock, and then on to some matte, blue metallic paper.  This was then mounted to another piece of silver, matte cardstock that I dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  I then randomly sponged the piece with Versamark ink and sprinkled on some more of the blue embossing powder.  I’m tickled pink with the final result.  What do you think?

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Can You Resist?


This is a quick card I made using a simple resist technique and a couple of oldie but goodie Hero Arts stamps. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


Saturday, October 22, 2011



I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  Here in Montreal it is very damp and quite chilly.  But, better than the rain we’ve had the past three days.

This is an ATC I made using Distress Inks.  I love the Fall colours!

Stamps are from Hero Arts and Tim Holtz.

I Miss You!!

Whipper Snapper has such cute stamps and this one is no exception.  Lots of open space for colouring.  I didn’t add much to this card.  I guess I am more of a Clean & Graphic sort of gal.


Until tomorrow, take care and thanks for stopping by.

I Wonder What She’s Looking At?


I actually went about making this card the “right” way for a change; picking out my papers and then colouring the image to actually match the papers and cardstock that I had chosen.  I must say, it sure does make the whole process a lot easier. 

The papers I have had for years and years; probably some of the first patterned paper I ever purchased.  The stamp is a Magenta favourite of mine.  Lots of open space for colouring.  I’ve stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Touch Twin markers.


Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

I Hope You’re Having a Wonderful Day?


I absolutely love Stamping Bella stamps and am particularly fond of these Ketto gals.

I’ve stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured with Touch Twin markers and added a little bling.

TTC03 – Florals

I’ve been using Touch Twin markers for a couple of years now and I absolutely LOVE them.

This is a card that I made for their challenge.  I stamped the image from the Daisy Love set using Memento Rich Cocoa ink, quickly heat set it and coloured with Touch Twin markers. The colours I used are listed below.  The background was done with Distress Frayed Burlap and I outlined the image with a gold Krylon pen.  To finish off the card I added two gold peel-offs and a little gold Stickles to the flower centre.


The markers I used:

Leaves: Y169, GY175 Y41, Y42

Flowers: Y36, Y34, YR24, BR107, Y38, Y45

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

I'm Back

It's been almost a year since I've posted anything to my blog and I would like to welcome all my stamping friends back to visit my little place on the web. I thought of starting over with a new blog, but there's a lot of history here that I would like to keep. So, if it's okay with you, I'd like to pick up where I left off.

This was an easy-peasy card to drum up. I coloured the Penny Black stamp with Twinkling H2Os and stamped directly on to hot press watercolour paper.

Thanks for dropping by!
