Birthday Candles

Playing again with the SSS 2015 April Card Kit and this time case'ing a card from my favourite crafter Laura Bassen.

I created two cards, one with Distress Inks and the other with Versa Colour - guess which is which below...

VC left, DI right - the VC gave a much better coverage -

I'd love to know what your favourite ink for the best coverage is - please tell me in the comments below - I've tried so many and am often disappointed.

Have a great weekend whatever you get up to. I'll be working on keeping cool here in sunny SE Qld - phew 33.5 degrees outside already.


MFT Banner Greetings for Scrapbook Boutique

I've had a heap of fun this month playing with the MFT Banner Greetings stamps and matching die, for Scrapbook Boutique.

Celebrate You

Balloons narrow

I was lucky enough to win a prize from Simon Says Stamp and was delighted when the April 2015 Card Kit arrived in the mail.


I had pinned a number of cards created with this kit so have been having some fun CASE'ing my favourites. The card below was inspired by Laurie Willison -


That little balloon stamp is quite perfect I think:)

I hope you have a great Sunday whatever it is you get up to.


A Trifold Card

Trifold card inside CU

Hi there! I'm popping in this afternoon to share a trifold card I've been playing with recently - an idea from one of the Online Card Classes - Die cutting I think it was.

Here's a few pics so you get the idea...first the outside -

Something a little different for a change :) Loved playing with my MFT balloon dies for the peekaboo windows...and the fabulous Big Scripty Greetings from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for visiting and for your sweet comments.

Bye for now...
