Paint Fusion, stamps without the paints

Good morning out there to all in wet and windy land, well that's what it is like here in this part of the North west and dare I say it? yes even cold, so say I.
Just a quick post this morn as I am trying to finish a Christmas card I started using a new stamp I managed to get from the Shop before they sold out, you know the one it comes in, you love it!, you want it!, it's gone, not this time baby lol, I got one ha! ha!. Anyhow back to this card I made at work last week for one of the classes in September. I have used the Paint Fusion Holly stamp set and Alcohol Inks on glossy card with some clear embossing on the main background panel.
Hope everyone has a good Bank Holiday Monday and thanks for stopping by x :) x

Floral S W A L K

Good morning this fine morning Not, cloudy,dull and damp, well what do you expect after all it is nearly Autumn!
Well at least it's not raining, moving on.....Here is a quick card I made yesterday the background is stamped with  Crafty Individuals floral CI-293 and Colorbox pigment ink pads, the white panel I stamped and embossed one of the flowers in white opaque powder sorry it's quite hard to see in the photo's due to bad light and nothing to do with the photographer lol, image is of course s w a l k and coloured with Promarkers, ribbon is seam binding
and again Promarker (Apple) used to colour it, buttons and brad from stash. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and you've guessed it a Promarker to change the colour

 Sack the Photographer........... this one is blurred! soz.
Hope every one has a good week. Thanks for stopping by, off now to get ready for work. We have a class this afternoon and I'm not sure which one it is better go and check T T F N :) x

Hello out there to all., just thought I'd share this very quick card that I made and it is for my Granddaughter Robyn who will be fourteen on Saturday.
Robyn loves football and even more she loves to play the game, in fact she plays for a girls team and I have to say that she is brilliant at it, she also loves the music and songs of Katy Perry, so I thought I could put the two together for her birthday card and this is what I came up with. The main image is a
 S. W. A. L. K. stamp Daydream Believer from Crafter's Companion coloured with Promarkers, peel-offs and embellishments from stash and
Distress Ink Black Soot for some of the background panels. She is sooooo not girly girly but I hope she still likes this concoction  that I came up with! :)
I bet you can't guess which team she supports??? lol xx

This is a very quick card I made for my brothers birthday granted it is a little childish considering he is ten years older than I am but who cares I just wanted to use my stamps from Creative Expressions designed by Lindsay Mason who came and did a demo day for us a few weeks ago and we had a great time! thanks Lindsay & David, it was a good day. My Bro said on opening his card That don't look like me it looks more like Miesha  (his granddaughter). So what, I just wanted to use my castle stamps and I did! he! he!

Butterflies & Birdcages!

OH Look!
 Butterflies in a cage!
Whatever next? maybe they can get out through the bars. someone should tell them lol.....

Just a quick post seen as this weekend has flown by like so many others before,  
this card is in the same style as the last one just a different colour. I gave it to my daughter-in-law for passing her final exam to congratulate her as she passed with 94%, What has she passed I here you ask?..... Well ..... she has passed her Embalming  exams, the stuff that undertakers do! good for her not many people could do that line of work.,well someone has to do it! and believe it or not I find it quite interesting and I have learned a thing or two along the way although I don't think that I will put it into practice any time soon, but you never know!!!!!  Anyhow, I have used Distress Stains & Distress ink pads on this card to create the backgrounds and the flowers and butterflies

PaperArtsy Christmas

Good morning to all just thought I would show these two very quick and simple cards which are on the classes for this week. As you can see I have used the Egg and Nog set from PaperArtsy, smooth white Advocate card stock glitter card, mirror card, stickles glitter glue, and Promarkers for the coloured panels and tree. All of these products are available in the shop

How come it is the 1st of August already? am I the only one to have blinked and missed July???? Has someone speeded up my life clock but not my metabolic rate as the time just flies by whilst the pounds keep piling on. What's it all about I ask you?????
