A Star Flower

I'm sure like me you have those paper crafting products that you fall in love with, at first sight. That's the way it was for me when I saw these two items from Simon Says Stamp - the Star Flower stamp and Handlettered Encouragement stamp set.

It then took me a few weeks to find the time to play with them - but oh what fun I had when I did :-))

I heat embossed the Star Flower with Pearl Embossing Powder and then water coloured  with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers using Dark Pink, Persian Green, Cobalt Blue, Light Green and Purple.

Love Kristina Werner's gorgeous handwriting on these sweet sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you again soon...



Little Dog Agenda

Hi there - thanks for visiting today?

As stampers do you, like me, have those stamp sets that you just fall in love with at first sight? I'm sure you do and I'm definitely not alone on this lol. That's how it was for me and Mama Elephant's Little Dog Agenda. As a dog more than a cat person, with two little pooches of my own these little darlings just had to come to my place to play.

And play we did - I have two cards and a video to share with you today...

They are so easy to colour and individualise, just a lot of fun to play with :-) And they make me smile :-)))

I hope you have a day that makes you smile - see you again soon...





Pretty Pink Posh Stampers Challenge

Hi there - I hope you've had a great week :-)

I'm popping in this morning to share a couple of recently published cards - I joined in the fun of a Stampers' Challenge where we got to play with Pretty Pink Posh Rainy Days Stamps and Dies and gorgeous sequins. 

Here are my full of colour and the other more monochromatic -

My heart goes out to those affected by Cyclone Debbie this last fortnight and as my card says, I wish you all brighter days.

Bye for now...



Distress Oxide Playtime

I've been enjoying a little more play time with my Distress Oxide Inks. I had a few cards to make (requested by a friend) using the Kaisercraft Card Front Die so I got busy with the oxides. First of all here are the backgrounds I created...

Have a WONDERFUL weekend - I'm hoping for a wet one here - we need the rain that's for, it's good crafting weather! :0)
