Hi there, here is a card I made with a set of stamps that were in the sale basket at my local newsagent, "Fabulous 50's,"  I stamped all the images with StazOn Black Ink Pad, and coloured them with my Faber-Castelle watercolour pencils, I shaded the edges with Tim Holtz Mini Ink Pad, Barn Door.   I am sending this in a gift of scrapping bits to my friend, I think she will get a laugh out of it, I hope so!   Thanks for visiting!!

Technique Inset

Hi everyone, this is my second posting for today, I made this card to enter into this weeks 52 Christmas card throwdown challenge,, it is a technique card with the Christmas baubles inset into the card, the blue one was the hardest one to do, as it has lots of tiny pieces, I used glitter paper for both of them, they are cut with a Marianne's creatables die that I have had in my stash for ages, but still love them, the card base is a shiny but dull colour silver, and I put wide Sellotape on the back of the openings to hold the pieces, in some of them I had to use wet glue to help the sticky-ness.    I then put a piece of cardstock cut to size on the inside to hide the sticky tape.   I used a sentiment from Cre8tive a clear stick on.   I drew the hangers using a stabile fine line pen. 

Thinking of you

Hi there, here is a card I made for my stash because we all need to keep some "Thinking of you" cards.  I am often asked if I have any in my box.   This one is on purple shiny cardstock, and is dry embossed with an mpress embossing folder "Jackies Flowers"  and I added a dragonfly cut from silver cardstock with a Fancy Free cutting die, I used silver cardstock to cut "Thinking of you" with a Cheerylynn and Memory box dies, on the inside.  Thanks for visiting today!!!

Wallet style Mini Album No 2

Hi there everyone, hope all of you are well, here is today's project, another little mini album wallet style.   I used a small paper pad from Cre8tive, which I bought on Boxing Day while in Queensland for $2.00. at K mart. There were 24 pages of 6" x 6" papers, and are all very pretty, I used a Tim Holtz "on the edge" cutting die "Ornate" for the front edge, and plenty of other pages in the collection, they are all lovely, and used the magnet closure.  The inspiration for this album came from Dawn's Inspirations, Sassy Scrapper, My Sister's Scrapper and Megs Garden, they all make lovely Mini Albums and I thank them all for their inspiration,   The little doily on the front is from "Birch" crafts, thanks for visiting today!!!

 Hi there everyone, this is my second post today, another card for my friend, with  this one flowers were asked for so I found inspiration from Tammy Tutterow, one of her many tags, I used a Tim Holtz stencil "Doily" for the left hand side and a sheet of paper from a small paper pad I bought from Kmart, there were 24 sheets in this tiny pad, but the papers are pretty, the pale brown paper has flowers on it and I used a Graphic 45 stamp and Vintage Photo ink pad for the right hand side, and a light ribbon that I sprayed with dylusions "Vibrant Turquoise" spray for the ribbon and also for the doily which was white cardstock, that I edged with Burmuda Blue Memento ink.  The ribbon turned out a lovely pale colour while the cardstock is quite bright.  The dies for the flowers are Die Namics "Mini Royal Roses," and" Daisy", and the other ones are Marianne's Creatables "English Rose" the paper is Graphic 45 from "Bohemian Bazaar" and I used the same for the sentiment on the inside of the card, also the Indigo Blue stamp for the lower edge, with the Memento Ink "Bahama Blue"  The Butterfly was cut with a Spellbinders die and I heat embossed it with a variety of Gold, Dark Green and Faded Jeans, to make a pretty butterfly which I attached over a little circle piece of card stock stained with Vintage Photo, one of my favourites, with dimensional tape so it is standing up a bit.   Hope she likes it, as much as I enjoyed making it for her, Thanks for visiting!!!!
