Watercoloured garden

Today I would like to share this new watercolouring technique I have rediscovered.  I recently attended a craft show and Art Impressions stamps were “demoing” this technique.  Using stamps, inked with water based markers, you create your little scene and use a brush and water to smudge the lines of the stamped image.  Very easy […]

Clean and Simple 4 class Day 2

I loved this technique shown by Debbie Hughes for the OnLine classes Clean and Simple 4 Day 2. It’s called Faux Paper Cutting and it’s a “collage” of pieces of die cut shapes. She did hers in a heart and I tried mine in a circle. It’s very therapeutic… almost like making puzzles…

Here’s my […]

Clean and Simple 4 class

I am taking an Online class again. I really love these. Even though I have been stamping for over 20 years, I always find some new technique to learn. And these are fun – lots of videos and exemples…. This class is called Clean and Simple 4.

On Day 3, the technique was about background.


Papertrey ink Tinsel and tags kit - more cards

I made a few more cards with the Papertrey ink Tinsel and Tags kit.

I was inspired by a card by Betsy Veldman – actually it’s only slightly modified :)….

I tried to do a shaker card, but for some reason my tinsel completely stuck to the back of the plastic window and would not […]

In Sympathy - Thinking of you

Very sadly, one of my cousins died suddenly a few weeks ago. He was only 68! This is the card I made for his family.



The stamp I used is labelled 1996-2010 “Just for fun” – not sure what company it is…. I stamped it in black Archival ink and then created […]

OnLine Card class watercoloring day 8 – 2

I was not quite happy with my attempt at the watercolour rose from my previous post, so here is a second try. I also used the StampinUp rose stamp inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink and watercoloured with Inktense pencils and a fine round brush. I also did the leaves differently and went for a […]
