Robot Card

Hi everyone,

I had so much fun making this card. I've had the idea for a few weeks and glad it's out of my head. I used darkroom door robot vol2 stamp set and stamped it on sanded silver kromekote card using StazOn jet black ink, slightly coloured the robot with waterpencil and waterbrush. My son really loved this card. Who said you can't put beads on a boys card!!

I hope you like it.


My New Hobby!! he he

Hi everyone,

As if I have time for another hobby!!! but I can see how making your own jewellery can be fun. I went with my sister-in-law and my daughter to the Bead & Gem show, they both make their own jewellery, my sister-in-law sells pieces and has just just been published in a beading magazine, so exciting for her and us.

These are my purchases, on the left are pieces for a necklace that I'm going to make, only one! I was soooo good. All the other goodies are for papercraft creations, so you might see them soon. The chandeliers drops are going to be Christmas decorations, Jenny Crossley did some for Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft last year and I just loved them.

I'm off to downloads some cards I've made, stay tuned.

Just for me!

Hi everyone,

Well I decided I would make something for myself and here it is!! I started it last night but managed to finish it today. I love trees and birds. The tree stamp is from the darkroom door tree set. All the other embellishments are broken pieces of jewellery that my Dad picks up for me, aren't I lucky. I have a box full of these goodies now and have been desperately wanting to make a piece to wear.
The background paper is made from Distress inks and water with a mixture of perfect pearls in it, you probably can't see the glimmer. I added a mixture of gold leaf around the edges of the Ranger Memory Glass frame. I'm going to wear it to the bead show tomorrow, hopefully I'll find a better chain for it.

Thanks for looking, more cards to come, I've been creating again Woohoo!!

Nicely Rested!!

Hi everyone,

I've been away for the long weekend with the family at Copacabana on the Central Coast, it was hard for hubby to drag me away, I sooo wanted a weekend of creative play!! But the rest did the world of good. I started reading a book called Too Close To Home by Linwood Barclay, it's fantastic. I started reading Friday and I've saved the last chapter for tonight!! he he.

I did take the laptop away with me and finished Stampabit's newsletter and I got all the workshops organised! WOW.

Hubby has cooked a baked dinner, we've had take away all weekend!! naughty aren't we, we're so lazy when we go away. It did rain a bit but that just means you sleep in longer and read a bit more.

Back to work tomorrow. I shall post a card very soon made with darkroom door stamps, yes I bought a few sets, check them out at I love them all but especially the robots and trees.

Catch up soon.
