Paisley


I thought I would try something different today. I found this lovely large paisley stamp from elusive images. So I heat embossed it in a nive glossy balck and had great fun colouring it with sakura pens and sprinkling glitters. It turned out better than I was expecting, but I think it was shaping the acrylic text stamp to the paisley contour which finished it off.

wet wonderland

It seems it is sunny everywhere except the North East of England. While the sun scorches the fields inland, we have mist and drizzle on the coast and a temperature drop of about 7 degrees.

I needed to bring some spring into my life so created this layout of our cat lyla sunning herself last week. I used the new Wonderland digital kit from O’scraps. I think it is a brilliant kit and may get used for lots of cards.

Back to work



I has been a lovely weekend, even though the sun was not scorching the grass it was warm. The Cats were out in the garden chasing flies and stalking each other in the bushes. Back to work today and I am being trained on a new computer system. On a less techie thought, I created a card for a colleages birthday yesterday using the craft robo to cut out the age and then my beloved cuttlebug for embossing the background. Magnolia stamp coloured with prismas and blended wih sansador. Lots of glitter for one of our ‘Glitter Girls’.

The baby card is also for a colleague and used the Litte Cotton Rabbit stamp which as coloured with water colours first then highlighted with Sakura pens. The background papers are TLC and the letter cut from felt card.

Dancing Maggie

The new Sugar Nellies have arrived and I have been playing over the bank Holiday. Hubby is off to the pub and I am in heaven with bits of paper and stickles.

The A5 blue card is for my mums 65th birthday next week. I used Bazzill cardstock and a background papers which were free from a magazine. These were stitched seperately. Of course I have been playing with nestabilities and stickles to layer up the Dancing Maggie stamp. The stamp was coloured with Primas pencils, blended with sansador and highlighted with glitter. The dress and face was curved and layered up to show a bit more dimention.

The red card uses Cosmo Cricket ‘Twist and Shout’ papers, bazzill and basic grey which was hand stamped up to make it a bit different. The fabric tag was ‘scrapped’ from a clothing label. I liked the way this Maggie looked a bit Christmassy with her ‘tartan’ dress.

Both cards have the insides decorated with coloured stamped images to finsh them off I added the glittered image on the back with contact details.

Off to play with Hamish now…
