Video: Stencilled/Ink Blended Christmas Cards

Hi there! I hope you're having a great week so far.

I'm popping in to share 4 Christmas Cards with you today.

I have been inspired by all the ink blending I've been seeing around blogland (particularly from Yana Smakula)

and Debby Hughes' recent stencilled tree card inspired me to combine the two.

I SOOOO enjoyed ink blending again with the original Distress Inks - it's been toooo long since I've played with them and I was reminded

that it's one of my favourite things to do when making cards :0)

If you'd like to see the process (and all four cards) please enjoy the video below or in HD on my YouTube Channel -

 Not long now and It's Friday! I hope you have a lovely weekend planned.

See you again soon...


60th Wedding Anniversary Card

I have a personalised card to share today - created for Hubby's Mum and Dad, who are celebrating their 60th Wedding Anniversary later this month.

I completely CASED Therese's beautiful cards for my design - in fact I didn't even own the Ampersand Die until I saw Therese's cards lol.

I knew that big Ampersand would be great for this card - not to mention more Chrissy cards just like Therese's ha ha.

I made mine into a shaker card though - so brownie points there for changing it up a little hey :0)

Nana and Pop CU

The alphas I've used are from Impression Obsession and have come in very handy since I bought them at the Brisbane Craft show a couple of years ago...

Inside I've used a Waffle Flower stamp set -

I hope the week ahead is fabulous and you are able to spend some time doing the things you love.

Bye for now...



Radiant Ornament Cards

I've been having some more paper crafting fun with the Birch Press Radiant Ornament Dies and have 3 cards to share with you -

Trio of Ornament Cards

I had lots of fun playing with Lawn Fawn's Really Rainbow Christmas Paper Pad, and glitter and foil cardstocks for these monochromatic cards -

Ornament card blue

The three word dies come from Cottage Cutz' Love, Peace and Joy Die.

Ornament card red

Ornament card green

It's such a beautiful die and you don't need much at all to make a gorgeous card.

I hope your Christmas cards are mounting up - I'll be back with more soon :0)
