July is here

Hello there,
Sorry I been absent for so long been so busy, my father in law has move with us and need to adjust a lot of things ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway I am starting to get my groove back and some time in my hand again so I have entered the Wednesday Sketch Challenge – Sketch 287 and this is what I have done, have a look,

I used the blissful butterflies to make my background and used some distress ink to resist the embossing.

For the center I used the cheeky monkey set and colored with my markers, I think it looks cute.

Well thank you for stopping and looking at my blog much appreciated.

Happy crafting,

Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 287


March is here

Hello there, wow alredy in March that is quick.

Ok I been experimenting with foil and I have to said it has been a lot of trial and errors but I have to said I am happy with my results.

What I wanted to find out was a solution to use my stamps with the foil technique, and I have to said I am happy with my technique now.

I bought a cheap ( $120.00) mono laser multifunction printer, it has copy, scan and print function.  What I did was I stamped the stamp in a normal printer paper and after I make a copy of that, I loaded the paper were the foil is going to be applied or vellum and it works,  well I am happy to do it that way because I can use all my stamps not a problem.

After I applied the foil and I passed through my ($25.00) laminator and I am happy with the outcome.

Have a look at the results :



Well thank you for talking the time to read my little spill.

Hello there,

I am trying my best to keep up with my blog, so I got ย this card today is done with the lawn fawn chit chat stamp set.

Foil, foil, foil, I been hearing a lot about foils so I decided to try it my self and this is the end result, I have to said I do like this technique but I would like to find a better way to use my stamps with this technique.

The front of the card has been embossed with an embossing folder I am sorry I cannot remember the name of the folder, and I used the lawn fawn sweater weather petite paper pack for the front panel of the card.

Since the images are small on this stamp set I decide to add a sentiment inside the card too.


This card has been made for mojo monday # 435 and also for lawnscaping challenge #124

Happy Australia Day !

Hello, here in ozzy land we are celebrating Australia Day, due of the public holiday I decided to make this card with the theme of Australia day.

What is more Australian that a bbq on this day hey

At the same time I want to enter a Lawnscaping challenge, is double challenge for me because me and water colours do not match at all, is hard for me to do anything using water colours so I was really interested in doing this challenge.

The stamp and die set I used was the lets bbq from lawn fawn, the frame was from mama elephant die set and the salty ocean and picked raspberry distress ink from Tim holtz.

I used embossing powder Zing Rouge and White from American Crafts and clear embossing powder from Stamp-it ย and here it is the end result.


Celebrate Australia Day
