Something's Fishy!

I used my Cuttlebug (Tiny Bubbles) to emboss the purple card.
I punched out 4 leafy feathery things -don't know what that punch is:( - & used aqua green dotty brads, one on each diagonal corner.
After colouring the images I placed a piece of clear plastic (from the Cuttlebug embossing folder when it arrived!) over the images, then layered the purple card on top.
The idea was from a card from Stamp Owl. Her's is a Gel Card, which I have yet to make! Check out the tutorial on her blog . Look for gel card.

The Three Gossips # 2

Here are the Three Gossips again, this time in their Red Hats!
This image is not the's a bit out of focus. I like to scan my cards but it takes soooo long to upload them! Maybe if I scan them at a lower dpi it will be better.
I used my Cuttelbug to make the fancy corners & have also used it on the red centre strip, behind the ladies.
(Love that Cuttlebug machine!)
This was a bigger card then normal, so it had to go into a square envelope.
I gotta learn to make cards that fit in 'normal' size envelopes! (or do I??!)


This is "Max"! A slightly tipsy frog in a glass of pink champagne!
I don't know what company he is from as he was an un-mounted stamp I bought from "Calm Crafting" in NZ. I just know his name is "Max"!
He has a gold dragonfly brad in the top right hand corner of the card.
Once again I have used the half circle punch from SU.
Before I forget, I get alot of my inspiration from Stamp Owl, so PLEASE check out her blog - her stuff is awesome!
And thanks to Frances, my blog is now up & running! :)

The Three Gossips!

I just love these ladies! I'd love to know what they're talking about?!
This was the first time I had used my Stampin' Up half circle punch. It's a neat little punch & is easy to use.
Since making this card recently, I bought the same 3 ladies, but with their hats on - very similar to this one & also by Art Impressions. (T - 2782). Great for making Red Hat Society cards! It'll be on my blog somewhere soon!

Cuttlebug Card

I was "doodling" with my Cuttlebug when I made this card! I punched out the white scallop circle then decided to Cuttlebug it! I tried to centre the white card so the Bloom Dot flowers were even, with one in the centre.
Then I sponged over it with a Pearlescent Olive Brilliance stamp pad.
I hand cut the olive scallop circle - don't look too closely 'cause it's not even!
I didn't have a plan when I made this, I just sort of put it together as it went along!
The dark wine coloured card has vertical lines embossed on it, hard to see in this photo.
The dotty paper is double sided, it has lines on the reverse side.

When my beautiful cat "Mickey" (My Handsome Printz!) passed away, I received a lovely pet sympathy card from my vet. It was totally unexpected & most thoughtful of them.
I was so impressed I had a rubber stamp made of "Mickey's" face, plus two word stamps (one of which you can see here) & made several pet sympathy cards.
I gave them to the vet to sell & said to donate the money they got, either to the RSPCA or to help someone pay for their vet fee's.
I love cats & as far as I am concerned, pets are part of the family, they just have a shorter life span. "Mickey" would have been impressed at being on a rubber stamp, over his 18 years of life he won me many photo contests & was quite "famous" for his hilarious photo's I took of him And now here he is on my blogspot!! (He'd love that too!)
Photography is another one of my passions.

Tree Ornaments

Here is a more "colourful" photo of my little snowmen ornaments! They were alot of fun to make look very cute! (of course, I'm biased!)
They have icicles on their hats but you can't really see it in this photo. :(


This is "Sebastian" the snowman! He is from a company called the Artful Stamper.
I got him in time for my Christmas cards last year. (2006)
I stamped him onto glossy white card & then added several layers of colour until I got the depth of colour I wanted.
I made several of these using different colours to colour him. He also has Kindy Glitz on him.


September 29th 2007
This is a Christmas card I made a few years ago now. The LOVE stamp is from All Night Media. (Mary Engelbreit - 849J08)

What you can't see on this card is that I've used Kindy Glitz on alot of it, to add some sparkle. The stamp is about 5 inches in length by 4 inches in height. I handstamped the green background - hopefully I have improved since then as the lines are not even! I think I'll use background paper on my next one!
