Just For You


I just love this stamp!!!  It’s from a set of free stamps that came with a magazine I bought.  Lot of open space for colouring.  I coloured this one up with Shinan Touch Twin markers and added a little Prismacolour pencil to highlight.

Loving my Distress inks


This card was painted with Distress reinkers.  The stamp is an oldie from Stampin’ Up.   I found this scrap of “handmade” paper in my stash that just seemed so right for this card.

Definitely a girlie girl card


Lots of girly glam with this card, eh?  Stickles, flowers and shoes that I definitely can’t wear.  ( too bad. so sad).

Things that Fly


I recently bought this Magenta stamp from someone ready to send it on to a new home.   I painted it up with watercolour, added some layers, mounted it to a base card that I embossed with a long rectangular Nestabilitie that my sweet sistah gave me for my birthday.

Thanks for stopping by.

Uptown Girl


Here’s another card using another one of Stampingbella’s gorgeous stamps.  This is Uptown Girl is coloured with Touch markers and highlighted with a bit of pencil crayon.  I added some Liquid Pearls and sponged Distress ink on the Spellbinder Nestabilities label.

Waiting for My Master


I’m really smitten with this stamp from Stampingbella.  I coloured it up with Touch alcohol markers and added a little Prismacolour pencil crayon for highlights.  The sentiment is by Magenta.

Thanks for looking.

What happened to summer?

Last week we were enjoying temps in the high twenties with lots of sunshine.  It went on for 6 days and was it ever nice to feel the warmth of the sun.  Mother Nature loves to tease us though as  we’re back to single digit temps with mixed precip.  I refuse to believe that winter has returned, so here’s a couple of springy cards.

Framing an Image


I’ve framed around my watercoloured image with a square Nestabilitie and I absolutely love this look!    If you’ve not tried this, the sandwich recipe is on the Spellbinders packaging and can be adapted to the die cutting machine you have.  When my Cuttlebug “passed on” I replaced it with a Big Shot and I absolutely love it.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.

This was a fun card to make.  I kept the colour pallette quite neutral.  I’ve used Inkadinkadoo, Magenta and a few other small stamps from my arsenal.

Red, Black & White


I know, long time no bloggie.  What can I say; it’s either stamp or blog.  LOL.  I’m going to try updating my blog on my lunch hours at work and see if that works any better.

Anyways, enough of the blah-blah.  Here’s a card I made a while back and I love this colour combination.  I find it quite striking.     I used one of my favourite text stamps from Hero Arts and the Spellbinder butterfly die was run thru my Cuttlebug.  

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!
