Tiny Townie Mermaid

Hi Bloggies! I have to say this is one of my favourite stamp sets. This tiny townie Mermaid is just so gorgeous. Stamping Bella has nailed it again! The background is stamped and white heat embossed on black card and the I have use my Prismacolor pencils to blend colours all over the background. Stamping…

Sending lots of colour your way.

Hi bloggies! Just a quick little card today … lots of colour … but sweetly simple … We have a big cleanup going on at our place today. All the boys are here! (And the rest of the family too!) Imagine … a big 3 space shed plus another smallish lean to shed. Imagine ……

Multiple Minis!

Hi bloggies! I have several cards to share today. When I was doing my destash … I found a box full of these sweet little mini cards that I was hoarding in preparation for setting up an online link for purchasing my cards. Yep …. you guessed it …. I never got around to it!…

Stamping Bella Unicorns

Hi again bloggies! I am a tad tickled about today’s card. Sometimes things just “work”. This card was one of those times. And … the stamp set is soooo super cute! I can’t wait to play with it again. I very carefully measured and cut the square windows separately with a Simon Says Stamp stitched square…

Kool Kat – Cowabunga Dude

Hi bloggies! Cowabunga Dude! Isn’t this the cheekiest little cat! I love the expression of joy on his face and imagine this is how all the boys in my family felt when they were skiing in Canada earlier this year! (And how Sandy feels when he catches the perfect wave!) 😀 This is a pretty simple card. The image…

Bubble Chicks

Hi bloggies! Here is the 3rd of 3 background experiments that I tried recently using my distress oxide inks. This was supposed to be a galaxy background… BUT … I made a mistake of wetting the sponged ink background with shimmer spray instead of just water!! The colours merged beautifully with this gorgeous sparkly shimmer on top and I just couldn’t bring…

Tiny Townies Mermaid

I have enjoyed a couple of Saturdays up at Robertson recently at Mel’s Camp Papercraft. Last month my sis came with me and we played with my Distress oxide Inks. She loved them so much she bought some of her own! My last post was the 1st of 3 Distress oxide backgrounds that we tried….. Today’s is the second ………

Happy Birthday Shaker

Hello friends! I mentioned in my last post that I get a lot of inspiration from YouTube. Another of my favourite card makers is Laura Bassen (laurafadora.com) and today’s card is inspired by THIS ONE that Laura shared recently. So… for this card I started by blending several of my new Distress Oxide Inks all over the background. I love how the…

Pizza My Heart

Hello bloggies! I get a lot of inspiration for my cards from YouTube and have several favourite card makers that I follow. Amy R (Prairie Paper & Ink) often creates her own backgrounds with repeat image stamping and often watercolours the images. I thought I would give this idea a try! Sometimes Amy heat embosses the image which is a good…

Mermaid Kit

Hello friends! I managed to get my hands on the May card kit from Hero Arts. It was a fabulous kit that included a sweet mermaid stamp set plus matching dies, a great wave stencil, some gorgeous papers, 3 mini ink cubes, some irridescent silk “liquid ink” and some gorgeous sequins. It was great value. I also bought an “add-on” stamp…
