Card making Tutorial

A sheet of A5 was cut in half and the moon stencil was coloured using the milled lavender


The rest of the sheet was coloured with the chipped sapphire. 

This was splashed with water and then using the white the edges of the moon were blended 

The house part of the stencil was coloured in black ink at the bottom of the card and the windows were coloured in white.


The creepy fence was stamped from the stamp set in black next to the house and stars were stamped into the night sky with the milled lavender


The images were stamped, coloured and fussy cut and the outlines were also stamped directly onto the card panel.


The fussy cut images were then glued over the top of these outlines

Sequins were added

The panel was then glued onto an A5 Card base

Christmas Chaos

Is anyone else a bit pedantic when it comes to dressing their Christmas Tree? 
I separate all my baubles out into piles according to their colour and size before I even start.

I can not decide if this little raccoon is doing the same, or if he is the manager. It could be the rest of the work force have scampered as nobody has been ladder trained and so was not competent to put that star on top without supervision....

Festival Plaza

I was just playing really when I put this scene together. But for some reason it makes me think of a festival and all the food trucks in one area where you have no idea what you want to eat because it all sounds amazing, you are literally starving and find yourself more perplexed with the fact the beer tent has an hour queue.
Oh to be young again...

Slimline Otters

I am loving creating scenes at the moment. This watery one is done with a little masking, stamping and alcohol markers.

I am fascinated by otters, I have seen them a few times at various places. I love how shiny their coats look as they glide so effortless through the water. But my gosh their smell is horrendous!!

Thankfully these adorable creatures leave no odour 


There is a very quick video on my YouTube Channel due to a camera malfunction, or was it a camera women malfunction? I would rather not say...

Card Making Tutorial

To being I cut apiece of white card using the slimline stitched die. I stamped my scene by masking the images with post its

I decided to stamp the sentiment directly onto the card base so that it was in the water

This was then adhered onto a piece of dark turquoise card and a sheet of A4


The A4 card was then trimmed down to form a slimline card base



The card was finished with sequins and clear drops


There I told you it was a quick one
