By The Seaside Tag


Hello, today I have a tag to show you using some free stamps that I got with a magazine last year. I cant remember the name of the magazine, but the stamps were created by Emma Ball. I have stamped the images with Memento ink and coloured with Copic markers. The background papers are from My Minds Eye and the shells and gems were from my stash. Hope you like it and thanks for visiting. This tag measures 4 x 6 inches.

George The Chameleon


Hi, today I have a stepper card to show you using a chameleon stamp by Crafty Stamps that my Mum has 'named' George. I have stamped the chameleon using Memento Ink, then coloured with Copic markers and painted him with some Prefect Pearl Sprays and a coating of Glossy Accents. The background paper was made using 'Peeled Paint' Distress Ink and Perfect Pearl Spray Mists. I then used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to create the foliage pattern on the background. The leaves were made using Cheery Lynn dies and the gems were from my stash. This card is made using a 6 x 6 inch card base. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

A Gentleman's Birthday


Hello, today I have another Steam Punk inspired card. The papers are from the 'Industriana' paper pack from Kanban and the stamps are from their 'Jasper' stamp sheet. I have stamped and embossed the suit onto the diamond pattern paper and added shading with my Copic markers. I over stamped the diamond pattern background paper with the cogs stamps from the same stamp sheet using Frayed Burlap Ink. I then added silver embossing powder around the edges. The sentiment is from Woodware and again embossed with silver powder. The ribbons and gems are from my stash and the screw shaped brads are from Creative Expressions. This card measures 7 x7 inches. Thanks for stopping by.

Steampunk Pink


Hello, sorry for not posting for the last four weeks, but once again one of my cats had chewed through the power cord for my router. Today I have a card to show you using some Kanban stamps from their 'Vivienne' and 'Insignia' stamp sheets. I stamped and embossed the dress with copper embossing powder, then used my Copic markers to add a bit of shading to the dress before adding Perfect Pearls and Cotton Candy Distress Stickles. The wings were also stamped and embossed with copper powder, but were painted using Perfect Pearls. The key background was made using some Perfect Pearl Spray Mists and 'Without A Lock' embossing folder from Couture Creations. The background paper was over stamped using the heart and again using copper embossing powder. The hearts were painted with Perfect Pearls and the shadowing around the hearts was created with my Copic markers. The ribbon and lace are from my stash and the keys were from my local craft shop, which I coated with Copper Embossing powder to make them match. This is a 7 x 7 inch card. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
