Seaside Inchie Background

Ahoy there! I have used the Seaside Inchies set from Darkroom Door as a background on this card:



I used some circle dies and some twine to create a life buoy. The word is from the Whimsical Words set.

It's nice to be able to cater for the men in our lives.....in a card making sense anyway!

Thanks for stopping by!

Butterfly birthday card

This card is a collaborative effort (my 9 yo daughter visited the craft room one night during the school holidays and would have just burst if I didn't let her help LOL!):



The sentiment is from the new Happy Birthday set by Darkroom Door, and the beautiful chipboard butterfly is from Your Creative Wings.

The butterfly has been covered with Metallic Melts, an awesome product made by my mate Beck Beattie. The best way to describe it is an embossing enamel with shimmer. I covered the chipboard shape with Versamark ink, sprinkled on the Patina Metallic Melts, heated it with a heat gun until it was melted and while it was still hot, I stamped the Darkroom Door Flourish Texture stamp into it. In typical fashion, the stamp was a little dirty from my last project, so the butterfly ended up with some brown in her wings, but my daughter was just delighted with the result, so I just rolled with it :)

Thanks for looking!

Seahorse card

I'm getting a little nostalgic about the wonderful summer we just had. A few cold mornings in a row and my brain thinks it will never ever be warm again!


The stamps for this card are all by Darkroom Door : Under the Sea set, Mesh Texture stamp and All Occasions.

Hope you're having a great weekend.  Thanks for looking!

Hello Butterfly!

This is a simple card made with pretty patterned paper and die cuts:



The butterfly is by Spellbinders, and the word is by My Favorite Things. I think the paper might be FabScraps, but any pretty patterned paper would work.

Thanks for looking!

Gelatos Rainbow card

I used my Gelatos to create a rainbow background for this card:



I stamped and embossed the Circles Background by Darkroom Door with white embossing powder. Then I applied the Gelatos to a craft mat before spritzing, and picking up each colour with a brush and putting it over the embossing.

The words come from a Dyan Revealy stamp set called The Right Words.

Thanks for looking!

Watercolour stamping

I had a little fun with some Darkroom Door stamps and my Distress Markers:


The sentiment and the flowers come from the Art de Fleur Vol 1 set. When the ink dried, I added some Stickles to the flowers and a ribbon bow to the stems. Simple!

Thanks for looking,
