Miss your Hugs!

 I think this card is fun! I hope you agree with it.

Green and Gray cardstock
White cardstock 14.1 x 9.7cm
Tim Holtz Textured Fades Brick
Distressed Oxide Pumice Stone and Black Soot
Multi Matt Medium
WPlus9 That is all stamp set

First, before doing anything stamp your sentiment. Emboss the white cardstock with the Texture Fades -Brick. Draw using the brick work as a guide to make a whole in the wall and cut out using a craft knife. Put a scrap piece of gray cardstock behind the white panel and draw in a shadow where you want it. Personally I had a shadow underneath the brick and then on the left side of exposed brick. Check out the above and below photos.

Using more scrap cardstock make yourself a "creeper" The head is 2.5 x 2.5cm and the body is about 1.9cm. Sponge with Black Soot and use foam mounts to rise the head, apply more foam dots. Position in the middle of the whole. I also used Pumice stone to help the brick work stand out.

Kaisercraft Whimsy Wishes

 This paper range is so pretty. My only problem is the fact it is winter based which isn't Aussie experience but, I love the colours and I love snowflakes. Plus all Christmas papers are winter based. One day I will have a white Christmas.

We have 2 cards today.


Kaisercraft Whimsy Wishes
Whimsy Wishes Collectables
Clear drops
Walnut Stain
Multi Matt Medium.

The strips of paper are cut randomly, so I have no measurements for you in the area. I glued them onto a piece of copy paper that is measured at 13.4 x 9cm. Trim off the excess. Frame the sentiment with the branches. Add some clear droplets with Multi Matt Medium.

This card is very simple in design. The only thing I really added was Walnut Stain distress oxide ink around all the elements. The presents and sentiment are all raised up using foam tape.

You can check out the video here.

Paper Rose Christmas Snowflakes

 This card is similar to a recent card class I taught but I wanted to have abit more of a play. This time with some blended ink and embossing, some variation.

Paper Rose Christmas Sentiments
Paper Rose Christmas Snowflakes
Distress Oxide
Cracked Pistachio
Evergreen Bough
Black Soot
White and Black Embossing Powder
Multi Matt Medium
Snowy Sequins

 Before you blend your inks heat emboss your white snowflake and sentiments. Blend thru your inks and sprinkle water. Leave the water for a few seconds and pat off. Make sure the panel is dry before you emboss your black snowflakes.
Use foam tape to mount the panel and scatter sequins in between the embossed snowflakes.

Cosmic Shimmer Pixi Powders

 Here in Australia, we got introduced to the shimmery pretty powders before Nuvo powders but I believe they are very similar products. Well, they were the first I found anyway. They are similar to Colorbursts and... there is another Brusho!! But these have Mica powder in them.

You can use these powders in a few ways. Alot of people like to apply the water first and then TAP (do not squeeze them!) but I like to tap colour on first then spray the water, only because I like seeing the colours pop altogether. It is purely personal choice, in that area. If you were wanting a lot lighter application then spray the water first.

One thing I have found is that you need to let it air dry, heating it seems to disagree with the powders.

Pixi Powders
Lava Red
Midnight Blue
Plum Twist
Kaisercraft Whimsy Wishes 
White Pearls
StarDust Stickles
Multi Matt Medium


Once you have completed the background it is literally just layering up the elements. I placed foam under each element. Finished it off with pearls and stickles scattered around.

Paper Rose Lead and Element Builder

 I don't know about you but I find solid stamps pretty daunting. Unless it is you are happy just to stamp them and leave it, which is fine, but I have trouble.

My solution is to use my Copics to add extra dimension and interest.

Paper Rose Leaf and Element Set 18620
Paper Rose Sentiments 2 17904
Distress Inks
Weathered Wood
Pumice Stone
Victorian Velvet
Milled Lavender
Bundled Sage
Peeled Paint
Glack Glaze Pen
Grey cardstock
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Clear embossing powder

Copics Used:
BG99, BG96, BG
V99, V95, V93
B97, B95, B93
I stamped the image 2/3 times using either Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint or both. This was because I was using distress ink and solid stamps. Once all the stamping is done, I then added some texture with Copics. Some making them into roses some just adding extra interest to the images.

Altered Tissue Box

 Today, is  a very different post than I usually do.

I have had a wood tissue box for AGESSSS! I mean ages!

I also had papers from Kaisercraft Craft a noon. I wanted to use it for cards so I cut it up into 14.4 x 10cm. I regretted it only because I do a variety of different projects. If you were a card making only it would of been fine. But for me it wasn't a good choice. They would of been awesome for an album... but... doesn't matter. We use what we have and make it work.

I had alot of cut-a-part elements, large pieces (which I used in this project) and smaller ones as well. The collectables have something for everyone, knitting, sewing, painting... Then I had alot of scraps to play with as well, so really the scraps were very useful as I didn't have odd shapes to try to incorporate. It took some of the decision out of the process , it worked out well.

This project is very simply in regards to work.I had already cut everything out, quite a while ago and the Collectables (ephemera, Kaisercraft called them Collectables) So it was literally decided where to put it and plonk it down. No extra sponging or cutting out. You can be I had elements I just wanted to use it up.

I do hope you enjoyed my project.

CASE me a Christmas Card

 Today I am joining my friend Michelle Lupton in her challenge CASE Me a Christmas Card. You can check out the card I CASE here

Crealies Stencil CLMM27
Distress Oxide Ink-
Aged Mahogany
   Barned Door  
Abandoned Coral
Clear Embossing Powder
Ranger Emboss It Dabber
Versamark Embossing Ink
0.3 Copic Multiliner Pen
Taylor Expressions Simple Strips Christmas
Stickles Star Dust
I made a mark on the top and bottom of a 14.4 x 10cm panel at 3cm then 7.2cm down the right hand side. I masked this off with painters tape- delicate surface.


The stencil I used doesn't have a  name just the code but it looked the most like little Christmas baubles. I didn't have red embossing powder so I used Distress Oxides. I need to try this with other embossing powders!

Once the ink was blended I used the Dabber first but my area was too big for it so I put out the big guns and used Versamark. After the clear embossing powder was applied and melted I used the Multiliner to add 2 thin lines to frame the embossing.


I used a T ruler to make sure the sentiment is straight and applied the Stickles to some of the 'baubles'

I hope you like my card and you can check out the video here.
