I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...

Oooh you know when you have an idea, you test it... and it works... Well here it is!
Embossing paste to create a snow scene.

Puts a different stance on you traditional shaker card.  The more the paste is moved around the 'looser' and more malleable it becomes.  "Such fun!"  Great for kids and adults alike.

Using the lovely new Hearts come Home stamp set for the stars teamed up with the matching dies 'Hometown greetings Edgelits dies' which- is you buy now you can get as a bundle and get that 10% off!
Watch the video now of how it was made:

Making Oh So Eclectic into Poppies

With this colder weather here in the UK I am already starting to feel autumnal!  I thought I would load this video of an idea I came up with after playing with the Oh So Eclectic stamp set.  Looking at the shape got my mind thinking about poppies, a quick google search helped me to look at the most realistic colours to use for each poppy.  I was amazed how this simple technique could create great effects.

Wacth the video to find out the colour combinations.  I am happy for my cards to be cased; all I ask is for acknowledgement especially if it is going out on social media, many thanks!

My inspiration was the classic red Poppy and the Canadian yellow orange Poppy
and those other lovely purple and pink ones!

Jar of love, masculine style!

One of those stamps sets that you can keep going back to and get something new each time! Love it!  This time rather than flowers I went for something more masculine, which I ended up using for my Dad's Birthday card as he is a keen gardener.

Click in the image to view the how to video:

I teamed it up with the wood grain stamp to use as a base, cut around the jars for a bit of dimension and mounted it on dimensionals.

You are what you... hoard?!

So as a demo we get to see the new catalogues early- WATCH THIS SPACE for things made with new product

When I first got this set, like I do with most my stamps- I just got stamping.  I like to repeat patterns, try a few different colours, just to see where the creativity might take me.  Then this happened...
I developed it until they looked more and more human. lol!

I even managed to create a whole little family.  For the sake of the card which I wanted to keep fun and lighthearted I selected a few colours from the brights colllection.

Forget me Not!

It always amazes me by simnply changing the colour of stamps it can change the whole look of a card- I'm sure I mentioned that when I made the last wisteria card.  This is my Forget me Not card using the smallest blossoms from the Colourful Seasons stamp set. I love versatile stamp sets and this is sure to be one of them!
