A Grateful Heart….

For this card I started by using a circle Die and cutting out a large circle that would fit within the square card blank that I chose, I then inked my craft mat with Distress Oxides inks in: Wilted Violet, Broken China and Worn Lipstick, spritzed the ink with water and dabbed the circle cut out in to this. Next I used my heat gun to dry the ink while still spritzing with water to get the desired oxidation effect, set this aside.


Stamp out your Gorjuss girl stamp and the foxes, colour using Spectrum Noir Markers being sure to layer and shade. Once I finished colouring with the markers I went over the coloured images with my Pencils and further shaded and highlighted the images which make them “pop” even more.

I used the star stamps in the set to create a background, glued the circle on, and then stuck on the stamped images with foam squares.

For the sentiment I chose one from Jane’s Doodles, stamped in black and used clear Embossing powder over the top, added a few dew drops for effect and voila!




This sweet little card was made using the following:

distress Oxide Inks

Spectrum Noir ColourBlend Pencils – various colour packs

Spectrum Noir Markers – various colour packs

Gorjuss Girl Stamp – The Dreamer

Circle Dies

Card Blanks

Clear Embossing Powder

Memento Black Ink

Dew Drops

Jane’s Doodles Sentiments

I’m back!

So, I’ve been out of the country for well over amonth, first on holiday, and then to say goodbye to a dear friend and love and support another.

I’ve been missing my craft studio, so will be spending a lot of time there in the weeks to come and have lots of projects to post!

Keep your eyes on the shop section as there will also be lots of new products coming in the next couple of months as well.

In some other exciting news, I am pleased to say that I am part of the 2017 Crafter’s Companion Design Team and with that will be running some specials to highlight some of my favourite products from them, this will be coming in April.

I will end this brief update with a few colouring projects I’ve been doing while getting over my jet lag, the Markers used are Spectrum Noir alcohol markers from Crafter’s Companion.

Honey Bee Stamps – Little Pick Up

The more I play and use Honey Bee Stamps and dies the more I fall in love with them ALL! Tonight as the business of Christmas card orders has wound down I had an opportunity to make my first card using the Little Pick Up Stamp Set and coordinating dies.


The quality of these products is top-notch and the images are super fun and unique, I highly recommend you trying out this line of products (which are available in my shop) and will post links to the items used below my photo steps of creating this card.
