Stampscapes Birthday Card


Created for a challenge on splitcoaststampers.  The mix-ability challenge this week was to add static electricity which I did by adding the lightling.  Todays card was created using:  Tim Holtz distress inks, water colour paper, memento ink, dina wakely acrylic paints, sharpie white paint, silver lead pencil, copic markers, watercolour wax crayons, watercolour pencils.  I had a wonderful time working with all these mediums.

Simple Cards

The weather has been horrible the past couple of days so I have locked myself in my craft room and have undertaken a mission.  I am going to make clean and simple cards using up scraps from my scrap pile, I am also going to start using some of those items that I bought but have just not gotten around to using.

The following cards were created with Memory Box – Chloe die.

And these cards were made with a set of stamps I received from a class I took at CKC Manchester.  The class was called Kick Start by Technique Tuesday.  The stamp set is really cute and works great with clean and simple as the stamps are quite small as you will see in the card set I created.

As usual, my photography lacks lighting but you get the idea.  Thanks for stopping by and stay safe.


Prima Marketing – Priscilla meets Tim Holtz

Todays creation is inspired by Trina St. Michaels Steampunk class that she taught at Crop A While here in Ottawa, ON Canada. My background is created with Watercolour wax crayons, I then cut out and added the balloons with ek tools Gloss Glace, from their I added the different flowers from Prima and the cogs are Tim Holtz, so are the spinners and the clock.  The mocking jay is from the new movie release Catching Fire.  Pricilla is dressed in suede paper and various prima papers.

I hope you like what you see.

Happy 5th Anniversary

Today I celebrate five years of marriage to my soul mate and best friend.  Warren this ones for you lover….

The traditional gift at five years is wood so I have created a photo album celebrating out five years together using this wood frame available at Hobby Lobby.  The idea came to me when I saw a similar one posted on Prima Marketing site.  This album has five pages for photos and journalling – that is one page for each year of marriage.


Prima Marketing – Julie Nutting Mindy meets Lizzy


Pictures of my Son, his family and my parents, and two pictures of my darling grand daughter.  These pictures are a little old but I am finally getting around to finishing her album and I am gathering photos from everywhere.  For this page I am using Mindy to represent Lizzy as she is today to what she was when the photos were taken.  Lizzy is maturing into a beautiful young women from an amazing young girl.

Mixed Media – Prima Marketing – Bloom Collection – Gardenia

Todays creation started with cardboard, an image of Gardenia and pink tissue paper.

I gesso’d the cardboard, modgepodge the tissue paper then I added the snow flakes and let everything dry.  Once dry, I spritzed everything with Dylusion Spray – Crushed Grape and London Blue.  Now keep in mind the tissue paper was pink so I now have very intense colours.

I then coloured with copics Gardenia and fussy cut her.  The dress on her is created with stickles and gelato to give the pink blue hue.  The Snowflakes are cut out with my punches and silhouette, the flowers are Prima Marketing, the letters are cut out using the Silhouette Cameo as well, the flourish at the bottom made with pears is hand formed using pearl strands I had hanging around.

Once I had everything layed out and glued down I added some extra touches, I outlined the snowflakes to give them depth, I added pearls and more stickles to some of the snowflakes, the letters are highlighted with smooch.  My only problem now is to find a way to flatten the board without loosing the depth and to learn to take a decent picture.
