Lots of detail on this one – maybe a little too much? It’s a mixture of inks with some resist stamping on glossy card.

Flutterbies is the challenge at Our Creative Corner

Summer Colours is Hels’ theme at Sunday Stampers


Words in art is the challenge at 3 Muses.

Some Work in Progress….

Woohoo, Playtime!

Just had a lovely hour playing in my half organised Stamping Room and I can’t find a flipping thing…  I think I need to go mad and label things this time, not to mention finish sorting through boxes!

So this is my entry for Artistic Times ‘’Sea of Greens’.

There’s quite a bit of heat embossing, too, so it fits FSC, Challenge 20, which is Embossing.

AT Sea of Greens 

Back to sorting out after ‘Brunch’.

Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend!

[Edited: the dragonflies are Non Sequitur and the inks are a mixture of Dylusions, Adirondacks, Distress ink and Starburst Stains. The dragonfly words stamp is one of Jo’s wonderful designs for Stampotique]

Forgot to say that one of my cards was chosen as a Spotlight winner on Penny Black and More and went live today, so thank you very much to the team for that!

Thank you for all the lovely comments you’ve been leaving – they really brighten my day!


Withdrawal symptoms – Numbers

I haven’t stamped for almost a week, despite being home, because I’m (shock, horror, gasp…!) reorganising my stamping room but after spending time with one of my really good friends, I ‘snapped’ and just had to make something with one of the backgrounds I was messing with while she was here… in the midst of all the disorder and half painted walls, he, he.

Here’s the result.

Believe it or not, that’s pink and orange, but I put the yellow back without screwing on the lid tightly and mopped up the spillage with the card, so it looks more orangey.  The coneflowers are from a SU discontinued set I really wanted (for the grasses – not this one) and it’s a BIG stamp but I love it!



I’m in a flutterby mood and although these started as LIM entries, I decided not to enter them because I’m not over happy with the two qualifying ones – ie the green ones.


Not flutterbies but definitely greens and I went a bit overboard on the edging because it was glossy card and I was using pigment inks.


This one isn’t all green – there’s lots of turquoise/aqua on there, too. I couldn’t scan it because it’s 3D and it looks as if the top wing is a bit curled, lol.  The beads aren’t quite as I wanted but I still like it.

LiviNg out Loud

I’ve had this book a while and wanted to work through it when I first got it but didn’t have either the time or the desire but yesterday, I was inspired by Willy’s post about 21 Secrets and decided to look for it.

I spent most of the evening working through the first ‘chapter’ of it and here’s what came from it.

Then, this morning, I was up early and started messing around with Prismas. I can’’t begin the next step because it’s too steep for me yet and I need to get used to Step 1, which is being comfortable with making mistakes – a BIG lesson for me!

Wishing you all a Happy and Blessed Easter Sunday!
