At Last ………………

Hi everyone. At Last a post.

I have been busy drawing out the designs for my Digi images which will be available soon through Scrapbook Sisters ( I will have to get Julie to show me again how to do a link!).  I have thoroughly enjoyed doing them and once I got started I couldn't  stop! Anyway I have been making a start on the cards I need to get done for various birthdays coming up in September – so here is the first one.

This is for my sons Girlfriend Rachael's  Birthday. I decided on a very feminine pretty card.

Sorry about the shadow and the pictures have come out a little dark. The fairy stamp is from Lili of the Valley stamped onto white card and coloured with Copics. The background paper is ordinary copy paper coloured with Spun Sugar Distress Ink pad using Cut & Dry pad and over stamped with French Script stamp from B Line Designs.

The flowers were made from torn strips of the same paper. I used little white pearls for the centres and edged the flowers with Glamour Dust. The leaves are petals  from white flowers and coloured with Copics.

Sorry ……….

Hi everyone

Sorry for the lack of posts lately but have been busy at work and busy drawing out my Christmas designs for my Digi stamps to be launched at my next class at Scrapbook sisters in September. I must admit I am having fun doing these as Christmas is my most favourite time of the year.

Julie did show me how to do a link but I’ve forgotten what she did. What am I like!! Absolutely hopeless when it comes to computers.

I have a lot of cards to do for September Birthdays – it seems to be a popular month in my circle – mine being one of them.

I shall be at the Scrapbook Sisters September crop which I am really looking forward to as I haven’t been able to get to the last two due to work.

Anyway I am sharing with you a couple of cards I made for Scrapbook sisters shop using the Nitwits die cuts sheets Julie gave me to “see what you can do with these” as she often does. I am not normally a lover of die cut sheets but I must admit I did fall in love with the images on these. The quality of die cuts and the backing sheets is beautiful. The images are so cute and the colours are beautiful.

This first one was an acetate card and I used glossy accents to give the effect of water droplets sprinkled with a little Glamour dust.

Card no.2 I made the main card from one of the Nestabilities Labels and I decoupaged the bunny. His head was then attached to the main card with a fine wire coil so his head bounces.cards 009

Card no.3 was again decoupage and the corner of the card cut away.

Favourite stamp

Apologies for the lack of posts lately but I had been preparing for my class at Scrapbook sisters. I will share these with you at a later date. So in the meantime I will share a couple more cards featuring my favourite stamp with you ‘Paris’ by Stamps Happen.


I stamped them on to watercolour paper and water coloured them using the Adirondak and Distress Ink pads. The brooch was centred with tiny beads and I cut out some strands of a pink feather and added them with Glossy Accents. Now I have my Copics I will have a go this week and colour the same image and see what I end up with. I will also hopefully do the same with a couple of my Fashion Stamps I designed.

Hope everyone has a good week. Thanks for stopping by.
