Hi everyone.   First, I want to say that I'm not happy with this card, but decided to post anyways.  I love this image, and I love the mica powders used to watercolour.  But the black mixed media paper I used warped and I couldn't get it flattened, no matter how hard I tried.  From now on I will be taping down the black mixed media paper when using. :)  You might save yourself some grief if you do that as well. :) I also decided to try making larger cards this year.  Why not??!! :)  Well, because I found it really hard to photograph the larger size.&n ..read more

Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card done with Stenciling Gesso and then sponging ink over top to create a soft, dreamy background (video by Eileen Godwin).  I have done this technique before ... click HERE or HERE. :)   I used the beautiful Festive stencil from Tim Holtz, pouncing over top with a finger dauber sponge that had been dipped in a little gesso.  You need so little gesso for this technique.  It acts as a resist and once you sponge over top, the design appears.  I sponged with Salvaged Patina and Mowed Lawn for the background colours ..read more

Hi everyone. A few days ago, I posted a card using Mica Powder stenciling onto black card.  I set the mica powders using Sticky embossing powder (Ranger) and it worked really well.  Then my friend Susan suggested that the same sticky powder might work with gilding flakes.  I had to give it a try. It worked so well!  No mess and fussing with glue.  I added Versamark to my image (Together - Penny Black), stamped onto black card stock, sprinkled Sticky powder over top and then heat set.  I pressed some gilding flakes into the image and burnished using Rub-it Scrub ..read more

Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing a card I made using Heat & Stick powder to adhere mica powders through a stencil onto black card stock. I'm really happy with how this turned out, but taking a good photo has been hard.  The colours are more subtle than this, and the flowers are a mix of blue and purple ... oh well. :) Sending the above card to Stencil Fun January Challenge. And also to Seize the Birthday Challenge #253 ... no topping today. :) Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone.  Today's card was made for the Color Hues Challenge #55 - Light Pink and Gold.  I do love pink ... :) I smooshed the background panel with a mix of Worn Lipstick distress ink and Delicate Gold ink.  I used gold foil card stock to die-cut the sweet pot of hearts,  Plant Our Love from Penny Black.  To finish, I added a white sentiment banner at the bottom, heat embossed in gold with Smile from the Stampendous Spring Sentiment set.  The panel is popped up to add some dimension. This was a quick and easy card to make, although it took me a while to fig ..read more

Hi everyone.  I know ... we just finished celebrating Christmas from last year. :)  But, I make over 100 Christmas cards every year, so I wanted to get started right away.  I actually made these late last year and sharing them now. :) I was inspired by a dear friend (Leslie - Running with Scissors) to create some cards using patterned paper.  Click on the link above to Leslie's post with her beautiful cards using patterned paper. All of us have patterned paper hanging about.  I'm more of a collector than someone who uses it. :)  Leslie's inspiration prompted me ..read more

Hi everyone.  A quick card using one of my new sets from Pinkfresh Studio.  Have to be honest.  I started by heat embossing the matching image.  It didn't go well.  The etching of the stamp image is very light and shallow.  It took me several tries of restamping and heat embossing to get the whole image embossed.  And by then, it was very noticable that some areas where thick and some thin.  I do like the stencils and will definitely get good use from them, but not a fan of their stamps so probably won't be buying more.  For this image, there are 5 ..read more

Starting off the year with a quick and easy card using some new toys I received at Christmas! :) Sending this card over to NBUS Challenge #46.  Thanks Dolly! * * * * * And you may have noticed that I've updated my blog design.  This was a fun project I did for myself between Christmas and New Year's. :) As some of you know ... pink is my favourite colour, with orange a close second.  I found this image last year and have been holding on to it until today.  I love flowers, especialy in these co ..read more

Hi everyone.   Today is my final post for this year.   I am using my favourite technique that I learned this year from the very talented Chrissie Stokes.  I followed Chrissie's second video, using a single stamp to create my design, inked with Stampin' Up! markers.  The image is Full Bloom (Penny Black) and even though it's not technically a Christmas stamp, I think it works really well to make a Christmas card.  This is my most favourite Christmas card I've made this year and I sent it to a very dear friend. :) To finish, I die-cut two rectangle frames ..read more
