The Cosmic Shimmer background inspired this card. I was playing around with Cosmic Shimmer Mists on black card, loved the way the light 'played' with the Cosmic Shimmers, it looked like the reflections from a light source. This in turn prompted the thought of Messy's candle. I stamped Messy and his Teddy on scrap white card and coloured with Promarkers. A very sweet little card that is sure to raise a smile

I haven't posted for quite a while, I've felt so poorly I just couldn't be bothered, I am so sorry to have ignored you all for so long. This is a lovely stamp and I can't remember where it is from. I just love it though and all I have done is used some scrap card for the backing card and edged the image background with Pentouch Gold and coloured the image with Promarkers. A very simple card but one I enjoyed making

I loved creating this card. It is once again a U-Mount stamp stamped in distressed ink and the colour bled out with a koi water brush. The paper was then torn and distressed with a distressed ink pad and cut n dry foam. A few little embellishments completed the card.

A really cute little stamp from Sugar Nellie. I treated the image simply as it speaks for itself. I coloured the image with SURPRISE!!! Promarkers, cut out the image and mounted it on 2 pieces of gingham paper from Joanna Sheen Ltd. I just adore this image and I am finding that it is very easy to get the shadowing on with the Promarkers. I think I am finally getting the hang of it. I really NEED more of these glorious pens though lol

This photo doesn't really do this card justice, it is a mixture of cosmic shimmers, distress ink pads, Glenda Waterworth stamps and heat embossing. I just played, dabbed, stamped and spritzed until I was happy with it. It was such a lot of fun and very messy. I just wish I could remember exactly what I did to it!
Plans for the wedding are now well in hand and I must stop playing and print the invitation inserts. Or else it will be a telephone or e-mail invitation job lol

I have made this card for a little girl who becomes a teenager. I decoupaged the Rock Hard Fairy and mounted her on a navy blue card blank. I then created a bubble with acetate onto which I put 2 cobwebs which I cut from the Paper Dolls cartridge on my Cricut. To cover the edges of the acetate bubble I put 2 strips of silver mirror card. I scattered a couple of big scary spiders which came on the decoupage sheet.

The backingpaper and decoupage are from Joanna Sheen's Egyptian Adventures. The paper pieces are from the scraps box. I made the paper damp with a mister, I scrunched it up and dabbed it on a weathered wood distressed ink pad. I then dampened the paper again and rescrunched it and dabbed it in a little bit of cosmic shimmer mist in Ancient Copper. The images are stamped in distressed ink in Soot Black.

I am having a scraps binge at the moment I stamped Messy onto some white scrap card and coloured the image with Promarkers. I stamped 'BABY' onto a light blue gingham stripe and heat embossed in gold. In the depths of the scrap box I found some lovely white card with an embossed diamond pattern which I used to mat the stamped images onto. This was then matted onto a darker blue gingham. The Messy Rabbit and gingham papers are both from Joanna Sheen Ltd

I expect you have already realised that my workroom is in the process of having a massive sort out and tidy up. Consequently my scraps box is bulging at the seams. This is a little card that I put together very simply using scrap card and paper. The bear is from Joanna Sheen ltd and is coloured with Lyra Aqua Colours. Its a card that I have to send frequently telling people I'm sorry, I seem to suffer with very bad 'foot in mouth' and only take my foot out of my mouth to swap it for the other one.

Today I have been on a mission to use up some of those 'bits' that have been sitting in my scraps box for a long time. A piece of aqua glitter card was put through my cricut and cut using George and Basic Shapes. I then used the aqua Cosmic Shimmer and cut a smaller mat with the Cricut. The heart was just a pink piece of card which I cut with the Cricut using the wedding cartridge. The basic cardstock was a piece of card which I trimmed to make a 5"x5" blank
