Two mixed media cards


I've been using my gelli plate again and made a few cards with some of the backgrounds. I've stencilled and stamped over the top and stamped and fussy cut the butterfly and flower.

Happy Little Stampers April ATC Challenge




To make my ATCs I created a background half and half, using a pretty printed tissue paper and a gelli plate stencil background. I heat embossed and water-coloured my rose and leaves and fussy cut them.

April CAS Stencil Challenge


Hi everyone, it's time to start the April challenge at CAS Stencil and we are looking at using embossing pasts and gels with our stencils. 


Here's how I made my card.
1. Smoosh two colours of ink pads separately onto craft mat and blend some white embossing paste into both.
2. Mask off part of the card and place stencil on, apply embossing paste. I used the darker colour at the top and blended the two together a little bit in the middle.
3. I heat embossed my flower and sentiment and used the same two colours to water-colour the flower.


We have some video tutorials at the challenge blog and our guest designer and the other DT members have some gorgeous inspiration for you. Looking forward to seeing your beautiful cards!

CAS Stencil March Challenge - Reminder


Hi everyone, a reminder that there is still time to join in at the CAS Stencil Challenge where the technique is Ghosting.


I inked my background with blue distress ink, placed the stencil over the top and misted lightly with water. I used the leftover piece to make a die-cut sentiment, and butterfly to which I added glossy accents.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Springtime Azaleas


The challenge at Less Is More is "Take 3". I wanted to make something with a "Spring feel" and thought these pretty azalea stamps would be good.  The three flowers and leaves were stamped, water-coloured and die-cut.

CAS Stencil March Card Challenge


The technique for this month at CAS Stencil Challenge is "Ghosting" - a fun technique where a stencil is placed over an inky background (made with anything water soluble such as distress inks, paints, distress crayons) and then rubbed over with a baby wipe or misted with water to remove some of the colour leaving a 'ghost' of the stencil. We have some helpful tutorials on the CAS Stencil blog.


To make my card, I inked a background with two colours of distress ink, placed a leaf stencil over the top, misted with water and then mopped up any excess moisture with paper towel. 

The other DT members and our guest designer have some fabulous creations to inspire you and we look forward to seeing what you make.

Thanks for looking!
