Magical Dragons + Distress Oxides

Seth turns 4 c

Hi bloggies!

IMG_1205Seth turns 4 f

I have had some fun with some new goodies …

 Seth turns 4 dSeth turns 4 e

I finally caved and got some of the new Distress Oxide inks. The colours in the 2nd release were more to my taste … plus i got 4  from the 1st release! I am TOTALLY SOLD on these new inks! Yes! …. they blend “like butter” and are very forgiving. They react beautifully with water … they are great for stamping on dark card … and work well for heat embossing. I won’t be getting rid of my dye inks … but am LOVING using these new ones!

I had a lovely, lovely day at Camp Papercraft … and am eager to go again. I just hope it warms up a little … the weather in Robertson at this time of the year is a little chilly!

These last two photos were taken before I had decided on sentiments. I decided to use the green one for my Seth’s 4th birthday coming up in August! (Grandson)

SSS – Emma Double

SSS Emma Background May'17 (3) - Copy

Hello my friends!

The story of my life … busy … busy … busy! But … it is happy busy … so I am not complaining!

SSS Emma Background May17 (13)

This card happens to be a stunner! And … I say that with all sincerity … the photos just don’t do it justice! The gorgeous Emma Background image has been embossed with gold embossing powder (left card) and with gold glitter embossing powder (right card). Both are amazing and I love both … but there is something about the sparkle and shine of the glitter embossing that just is mesmerising! (Particularly IRL!)

SSS Emma Background May'17 (2)

The images are coloured with COPIC markers … and yes … it did take some time to do these cards!!! But  … so worth the effort!

I am going to find it hard to part with these two … will have to find someone special to give them to! 😉

SSS Emma Background May17 (16)

Hope you are all having a great day! I am sorry I have done absolutely NO blog hopping of late. I am missing all my blog friends … but one of these days I might stop long enough and also have enough internet download Gigs to allow myself some indulgent delights! Until then … happy stamping!

Sweet Shoppe

Sweet Shoppe & Oh Happy Day May17 (10)

Hi again!

I am supposed to be doing some painting of signs for the wedding deco … but just popped by quickly to add another card! I hope you are enjoying my latest creations! ??????

Sweet Shoppe & Oh Happy Day May17 (9)

This was super fun! I sat in front of the TV one night and coloured all the images (with Copics) … enough for 2 cards! Very relaxing and satisfying!

Sweet Shoppe & Oh Happy Day May17 (13)

And … of course … I had to add sparkle and shimmer to this one! I just can’t help myself! 😉

Tiny Townie – Amanda is Awesome

SB - Tiny Townie - Amanda is Awesome Apr16 (7)

Hi bloggies!

SB - Tiny Townie - Amanda is Awesome Apr16 (1)

Just a quick post today … trying to get on top of a long “to do” list. How about this cutie pie stamp!!! I just love it!

SB - Tiny Townie - Amanda is Awesome Apr16 (8)

I am wishing I was more generous with the sequins … and that I had dusted the edge of the inside tape. But … you get the general idea! 😉  Don’t you just love the sentiment! (I stamped it inside the card.)

Some sunshine!

IMG_2672Hi bloggies!

This will be quick as I am doing this post on my phone. I decided to leave my computer at home & bring my iPad with me for our mini break at the beach! But … then I realized that all my recent photos of card creations are on my phone … so if I want to share … then phone it is!!!

IMG_2671This is a recent card I made for a special birthday! It is a little ray of sunshine, don’t you think? I just smile whenever I see it!

IMG_2675There is a beautiful shimmer (wink of Stella) on all of the centers of the flowers and on the “smile” word. It’s a shame that the photos don’t pick it up better!

All the watercolouring is done with Zigs & a water brush.

Hope you are having a great day! I am enjoying a little respite at a family favourite holiday cottage for a few days. See you soon! Hugs xxx

Mother’s Day Floral Shaker

Mothers Day 2Hi again!

So much to share … so little time! Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much effort you put into a card … it just doesn’t translate the way you have in your mind. But … then there are other times when everything seems to fall into place and the result is more than pleasing! This card made me happy! 😀

Mothers Day 1

I always love playing with this stamp set. And … of course, the matching dies make it so easy to pull a card together more quickly. This did take some time to do the COPIC colouring … I was doing enough for two cards … but the result was worth it. Some ‘wink of stellar’ sparkle was the perfect finish. My two mums loved their mother’s day cards. 🙂

Sorry the photos are a little dark. The Windows update to photo editing just isn’t as good as the previous version. I was so used to the old one! Hugs xx

Hi bloggies!

MMMmmmm … I was pretty tickled with this card. One of my first using my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers for watercolouring!

whimsy-abby-and-jade-sep16-7

The watercolour wash on the background worked a treat … and I found the colouring for the images flowed pretty well too! I have heat embossed the background stars using WOW silver pearl embossing powder and layered it over the black inked stars. It is pretty eye-catching in real life! (IRL)

This was a thank you card for a friend who helped me with a recent assignment for a course I am doing. She definitely has a way with words. And … I made a second one to put into my stash “you’re in my thoughts!”

Spring Flowers

Hi bloggies!

I love how vibrant the colours are on this card. I have done some watercolouring over a clear embossed image. I made sure the card was quite wet to allow the paint to flow into the sections of each image.
