Another girly card today for my friend's daughter - I used a lovely bright Sandylion paper called Hoopsy Daisy and added an element sticker from the Two Scoops range. The image I printed from Pink Petticoat and coloured using pens, mounted onto yellow card and then gold mirri and finally mounted onto card with foam tabs to give some dimension. Two flower elements with gold brad to finish. Thanks for visiting.

Another card using the resist technique - I thought I would go all girly and
use pink as I have a friend whose birthday it is next week . I love the effect this
technique produces. Now to get back to making some Christmas cards !
Thanks for looking.

At last, a new technique for me :) I found this technique fully explained on Deby's website - Just Add Love - and think the finished card is just lovely. I stamped the cow parsley image from the Elusive Images set with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I then overstamped the image with a brown pigment ink pad. The card was then sprayed with Creme De Cocoa Glimmer Mist which allowed the stamping to bleed and give a softer image. The tag was misted with the Glimmer Mist and stamped with a saying by Picasso. I then added the ribbon and mounted the cream card onto beige card and just touched the edges with the brown ink pad. This was then mounted onto the cream card - I really enjoyed making this card and will post pics when I have played around some more with different stamps and colours of Glimmer Mists. Thanks ever so much to Deby for her instructions and inspiration. Thanks for visiting.

It seems quite a while since I updated my Blog, I have been quite busy making christmas cards and christmas atc for swaps but have now managed to try out some more new stamps from Graphicus. I stamped the snowflake stamp and embossed with gold powder onto cream card. I then stamped the town image stamp on the first card with gold powder and with clear on the second card. The gold image was then mounted onto brown card and then gold mirri card and mounted onto card along with greeting. The clear image is mounted onto gold mirri card, snowflake embellishment added which gives a lovely sparkle and a greeting mounted onto gold mirri card. I am really pleased with the finished results. Thanks for looking.
