You hold the key


Just a short post to share with you a quick card I made for the next Valentine's Day (What? Already?!?), lol.  All the stamps I used on this card are from one set from Clearly Besotted. To add a finishing touch, I used some red twine to wrap the card round once and tied a bow.  Hope you like my card, and have a great day!  Gotta go, kids' swim lessons start in 20 mins, can't be late.

Ahoy Matey!


I'm here to share a quick card with you all.  It's my nephew's 4th birthday next week, so I made this card for him.  He's really into pirate that stuff, so I used a boat stamp from Clearly Besotted and did a quick colouring with just 2 shades of grey (CG1 and 2 from Spectum Noir), and then cut the image out leaving a white border all around.  I also stamped the sentiment on a piece of paper to ground my boat.  I put the whole thing on a piece of patterned paper, can't remember which pad this paper is from, I had it for a long time, I thought the gold embossed dragons are just so cool, and perfect for my background.  To finish off the card, I added some gold sequins to match the gold embossing and to add a little bit more interest.  And that's IT.

Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by and see you soon.

Have a robotastic birthday.

It's been a while since the last time I posted.  Life is just too busy with 2 little kids and running a home. I honestly don't know where time has gone.

Well, it's that time of the year, the holiday season. My friend have asked me to do a pop-up shop with her this Saturday to sell some of our creations.  So I've been extra busy in the evenings this past week making cards till midnight.  I had fun! I missed making cards till midnight before our kids were born.

So here is just one sample.  I used Lawn Fawn's robot stamp set, stamped the images on a patterned paper, coloured them in with my Specturm Noir marker in cool greys (CG1,2 and 4) and used glossy accents on the balloon.  Super easy and boyish.  Love how it came out.

Hope you like it, too.
Thank you for stopping by.
