We'll get straight into the cards :)

Here is a card using the lovely, lovely girl image from Born to Stand Out set.

Next is the cutest owl from Bountiful Owl set

From Sep KOM

Finally from the recent Stamp of the Week releases

Thanks so much visiting me.

Faith Tag

Today I was inspired by Laurie over at Papertrey Ink to create a tag using a Cover plate and a Tag die.  I have been hoarding lots of Papertrey Ink products because they are so pretty - always not having time to play with them.  Finally... a chance to use some of the supplies for the first time!

I used the In The Woods Cover Plate die, Faith die and Tag Sale #3 to create this tag.  The sentiment is from the Faith Mini Stamp Set.

A pretty simple tag.  I die cut the Faith die twice, once on patterned paper and another on a piece of foam just to give it a bit of dimension.

This was so fun!  Feeling Happy...

See you!

Unity Hop {25 Aug 2016}

Hello Friends!  Time really flies and we're already at the end of August.  So glad you stopped by!

How many colouring mediums do you keep in your stash?  I can't help myself when it comes to trying out different mediums.  I am really into colour pencils recently and here is the card using Prismacolors and the beautiful stamp set Steps Of Courage.


A few of you have asked if I can share some videos on how I colour using Copic Markers.  I will try to get started with the videos - it will take some time but once I get going I will share them on my blog :).  Thank you for all your wonderful messages.

Here is a card with the latest release Spirit of a Mermaid by Susan K. Weckesser with Copic Markers.

Enjoy the hop!

A Watercolour Card

Although I am a massive Copics fan, there are times I wish I can do a reasonable job with Watercolours.  Here is one I made recently using the WPlus9 stamp Beautiful Bouquet : Ranunculus - love this stamp set.

I heat embossed the image on watercolour paper (recently bought this from Ellen Hutson and I had good results with it) with detailed white embossing powder, then used my Zig clean color markers to colour the image.  I must admit I am quite addicted to how well these Zig markers work - I splurged and bought not just the pack of 60 but some loose additional markers as well.  The sentiment is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black - my fave black inkpad.  Keeping the card simple, I embellished it with some twine.

I think I'll have to practice more with watercolours in the near future.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
