Work of Art birthday card


(excuse the grey line running through the image.

I’m having terrible difficulties with all things photo related on my laptop      😦


A quick and easy card.

I particularly like this as I think it would be suitable for male or female of any age. (it’s for my lovely hubbys’ birthday but ssshhhh, don’t tell him!

I’ve fallen in love with the 2014-2016 In-Colors and with this little stamp set in particular (Work of Art). I had originally thought it would be a bit boring however it is anything but! It’s Fab!

I’ve attached a quick brief and list of products used and you can find the link below for my online store. Open 24/7 yippee!!!.

Do drop me a line as I would love to hear from you. Sometimes it can feel like am writing to myself       😉

Swallowtail Desktop Notebook/Journal


swallowtail notebook

I love this little notebook. (you could use it for a journal if you like)

It was quick and relatively easy to do.

I did make a couple of mistakes (like forget to use my embossing buddy before heat embossing!!) but nothing too drastic. It’s the mistakes that make it uniquely mine   🙂

Using the ’emboss resist’ technique (emboss then use a sponge/dauber to colour in image and wipe away excess with a piece of kitchen towel) is really easy and effective.

And I also used a neat little trick using bleach in an Aqua Painter (keep this one solely for this purpose). Credit for this little tip goes to the lovely France Martin.

You could use Stampin’ Up! traditional Stampin’ Write Markers or the new Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to add stronger colour where required.

This technique is such fun to play with.

Go ahead! Give it a go!

I’ve attached a brief doc to detail products used etc.

I would love to hear from you so, any comments or questions, do drop me a line.

Happy Stampin!   🙂
