Polar Coffee

Polar Coffee

I had the idea of a gold and white coffee cup and managed to put it together quite quickly. The MFT polar bear waving hi substitutes any further sentiment. But creating that background and how to add the pink I wanted, took me very long indeed. After much playing about with various papers and inks, […]

Icy Glitter Snowflakes

Icy Glitter Snowflakes

Today I’m posting three cards in one psot. So please scroll down to see them all! I am really enjoying using glitter cardstock of late. So here is a snowflake card using more of the same. For the background panel, I inked some white pigment ink through a stencil. The little bird is the focal […]

Winter And Sweaters

Winter And Sweaters

Last year I fell in love with Newton Nook’s winter critters in sweaters. They are sooo adorable! And they don’t have to make a Christmas card. So I ordered them with the coordinating dies and can’t get enough of them. For this card I chose the fox. I started with the silver panel on which […]

Snow White

Snow White

Snow White is this wednesdays challenge by SSS. It inspired me to create this snowfall card.   I had already made the snowflake. It was a die cut from patterned paper on which I added inks in blue and silver and played around with adding clear embossing powder between the inking. This pearled up beautifully […]

I have had these charming tea themed stickers in my stash for a few years, always holding on to them. I am pleased to have finally found them a home on a lovely card where they fit right in. I created the wreath to match the stickers, going with distress ink colours to show them […]

Another Fall Coffee Card

Another Summer Coffee Card

Another Summer Coffee Card

My head is still teeming with ideas for summer themed coffee cards, so I couldn’t resist to make another for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I started out with the coffee cup, stamping hibiscus florals in Distress Oxide Ink in fired brick, also using it to sponge up the edges and colour the lid. Next […]

Easter Rabbit

Easter Rabbit

This card started out with me playing with the Distress Oxide Inks. I used spiced marmelade and worn lipstick on one piece of cardstock and cracked pistachio and iced spruce on another. Then I wanted to use pieces rather than chuck them out and decided to make another Easter card. I used the rabbit stamp […]
