Shimmery Bauble

Hi Friends!

Just a quick post today sharing my DT piece for the Inspiration Post over on the STAMPlorations blog ...


Christmas cards are perfect for adding a bit of shimmer. It's about the only time of year I use mirri card for die-cutting.

Going all out for shimmer, my background was created using Violet and Sea Green Brusho powders with some Iridescent Gold SprinkleIT. It does rather sparkle, but sadly one can't really see it on the photos.

My sentiment was stamped with Elegant Eggplant SU ink.


Here are the STAMPlorations products I used in today's card:

Christmas Doodles

Hi Friends!

Just a quick post today sharing my DT piece for the Inspiration Post over on the STAMPlorations blog ...


I am really loving the doodled look of Shirley's Layered Holly set. It's perfect for those quick and artsy one-layer cards. The holly and sentiment are simply stamped with a darker edge around the solid shapes. Both were tied together with a doodled border.

September Christmas In The Air

Hi Crafty Friends!

Over at STAMPlorations they are introducing two new Christmas In The Air Kits.  STAMPlorations are celebrating the release with a little Blog Hop over on their blog.


I am showcasing the Christmas In The Air Kit #3 in my projects. Have a look ...


My first card uses the Holiday Bell stencil in combination with the Thrill Of Hope phrase die. I used Silver and Gold Glitter Frosting Paste with the stencil and the sentiment was cut from silver mirror card.


My next card uses the Winter Village stamp set in combination with the Stitched Snow Hills. The houses were watercoloured and finished off with a touch of glitter.


For my last card I went a bit retro using the Be Joyful ephemera tiles in combination with some patterned paper and gems from my stash. I simply added a touch of colour, rounded some corners and did some matting and layering.

Over on the STAMPlorations Blog you can find projects by Shirley showcasing Kit #3 and Nancy and Deppti both of whom are showcasing Kit #2.

You have until September 30 to join the Release Blog Hop by leaving a comment on the STAMPlorations Blog and participating designers' blogs.

Prize: one winner can choose either Kit #2 or Kit #3

The winner will be randomly drawn from all the comments left as mentioned above and announced in the September Winners post on October 10 on the STAMPlorations Blog

Here are a few close-ups of my projects ...

Courage Is ...

Hi Friends!

Just a quick post today sharing my DT piece for the Inspiration Post over on the STAMPlorations blog ...


I opted for a mopped-up-ink background colour using Aurore and Cire Izink inks dabbed on my craft mat and spritzed with water. Blossom Sprays #2 was then stamped with Miel Izink ink to complete my background.

The horse was stamped slightly overlapping and coloured with Caran D'Ache Neocolour crayons. My card was finished off with a sentiment, doodles and sequins.

Slimline Birthday

Hi Friends!

Opting for a birthday card in a change from this month's Christmas theme, I got another super skinny slimline card for you today.

Here is my DT piece for the Inspiration Post over on the STAMPlorations blog ...


For this one-layer card I tried something new to me ... watercolouring on pearlised card using my watercolour pencils and a lightly damp brush. The rest was pretty easy, just a bit of stamping and stencilling.

The envelope is a custom made one using my papercutter, score board, ruler, craft knife and corner rounder punch.

Being Together

Hi Friends!

Continuing with the Christmas theme this month, I got another super skinny slimline card for you today.

Here is my DT piece for the Inspiration Post over on the STAMPlorations blog ...


I used these two cute critters from the Christmas Ephemera #1, popped them on a cardbase cut from cream Centura pearlised card and grounded them with a stamped row of small snowflakes. My card was finished off with a stamped sentiment and a red gem.
