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!

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! 😉

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!

Tiny Townie – Amanda is Awesome

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.)

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

Stacking Animals put a smile on your face!

SSS - Stacking Animals Jul16 (5)

Hello friends!

I guess you have been thinking I had dropped off the face of the planet! But … even though it has been awhile … I haven’t forgotten all my blog buddies. I am sorry it has been so long! Life has been busy! But … I am not going to bore you with the details except to say that mostly it has been happy busy! 😀

SSS - Stacking Animals Jul16 (3)

I wanted to share a few cards with you and decided to start with one using a stamp set that always puts a smile on my face! It is super fun and perfect for those tricky male cards.

Click on any picture to enlarge!

I had fun doing an embossed, sponged ink background and some copic colouring on the animals. The sentiment is adorable. I have another card to share using this set … hopefully that won’t be too long! 😉

Whimsy – Penguin Oops!

whimsy-penguin-oops-nov16-7

Hi there!

I have done all my Christmas shopping and it is gift wrapped and under the tree! Feeling pretty organised … but still have to think about food for 3 family Christmas events at our place. Christmas Eve is our time with our kids and grandkids. My extended family is going to be away over Christmas so we are having a day together on the 17th Dec … and Gav’s family is coming on the 26th. So … I had better get myself organised … I have cooking to do!

whimsy-penguin-oops-nov16-1

I usually make 4 of each Christmas card … just to be efficient with my limited time. This one I did in two different colour schemes … one mainly gold colouring to match the DSP … the other a little brighter.

A cutie-pie image and some glitter snowflakes on the black background is really eye-catching.
