I have worked out how to do a watermark on my images. Very pleased with myself and need to thank Kurtis Amundson (check out his web page stampinkub) for his tutorial although I only have Paint Shop Pro I managed to work out the difference. Thanks Kurtis...

The Next Images are some Challenges I took part in over at splitcoaststampers I've really enjoyed them I hope you like them and feel free to ask any questions or leave a comment Thanks for Looking...

I made this card for my Great Aunty who God Bless Her isn't very well and I wanted to try todays colour challenge. I didn't have any olive paper but did have olive coloured pencil. I used dcwv old world paper to get close to olive.
The butterfly which is a little hard to see in pic is stamped with staz on onto shrink plastic coloured with peel off pens (permanent) cut out and heated & shaped over tweezers. (I will post a tutorial for making the butterfly very soon).
I cut the circle with my scallop scissors and matt & layered on 3d foam. I punched the daisies form the different card stock I had used on the card and layered on 3d foam. Then added the bling.

tfl my first challenge
GOOD LUCK - New Home

Ribbon challenge; there's not much ribbon but I like how the colours go with the patterned paper. I couldn't resist using the sizzix stuffed bear I stamped over him with linen stamp and layered him.

I stamped the home sweet home stamp and coloured and layered it with 3d foam. I created the hinge and attached with eyelets (because I like the flower on the patterned paper underneath and this way you can still look if you want). I coordinated the ribbon folded and attached with brads.

I textured the backing paper with distress embossing plate and inked the edges.The Good Luck is stickers, thanks for looking.

This was for the sketch challenge

I folded Navy Card stock on the length to create a different card base. I embossed the decorative paper on the inside of card & outside edge with swirl HOTP stamp & Blue glass embossing powder.

I triple embossed the warm wishes HOTP sentiment stamp with utee & 2 different embossing powders onto square of grey board. I matt and layered onto gold paper then mounted on 3d foam.

I finished off by stamping faux stitching on the edge and heat embossing.

(I will post the tutorial for this very soon)

This is a close up it looks a little like a tile.


This was for the Inspiration Challenge on slipcoaststampers.

The Image was of a Christmas Bauble and when I saw this image for the inspiration challenge I thought of making an acetate card straight away to give the impression of glass.

I stamped over the acetate with white StazOn ink and some of the swirls with embossing powder.

I drew the tree free hand with a versamark pen and embossed with black embossing powder. Then I filled in with permanent pens and gelly glaze. It gives a lovely stained glass effect. The dots (baubles) are with gold glitter glue but is hard to see in the picture.

I punched different size circles in mix of colours edged in ink and layered on the acetate with re positional adhesive. I positioned the finished tree over with silicone adhesive so it wouldn't be so noticeable through the transparency.


I enjoyed this Challenge I like bright colours...

I stamped the flower on three coloured card stock and cut out at different sizes. I layered these and cut to fit in with the design on the card. With just ONE flower.

I scalloped the edge of the card with my corner rounder punch. I created a window with my frame and window circles on my Big Shot machine. With the turquoise card I textured with distress embossing plate and inked over with white chalk ink pad to represent water.

I die cut the frog an letters and embossed them with versamark and clear embossing powder.

Thanks for Looking, I hope you like It.


This was for the card sketch challenge on slipcoast stampers.

I really love the backing paper which is a floral embossed vellum. Soooo yummy I really wanted to use it.

I created the hat boxes by piecing and layering on the scallop matt I was feeling in girly pink mood. The stamps are from a set by See D's hats off to you. I only put double sided on the vellum underneath the shaped motif so the corners are still free.

This took a little while to post and I hope you come back to check for new posts I have lots more pictures to upload. Thanks for looking and feel free to add a comment.
