Tim Holtz Paper Tool

Just for those who were asking for it,
here is the short video I made showing the TH paper distresser tool.

So here it is! :D

Next two Christmas cards.

Morning all!!

These two cards were made yesterday but this is me just getting the chance to post them here!!

The blue card:

Stamp by fairy doodles. Stamped with memento tuxedo black and coloured with promarkers.
Flowers by wild Orchid Crafts.
Paper edges distressed with the Tim Holtz tonic thread cutter.

The red card:

Stamp by Penny black from the new range.  Stamped with memento tuxedo black and coloured with promarkers.
Flowers by wild Orchid Crafts.
Paper edges distressed with the Tim Holtz tonic thread cutter.

I like these two cards and enjoyed the fact that for once I got to make two in a morning!!!

After these were shown on Facebook, I have had three offers, one from a shop to sell my cards for me.

Something to ponder.

Late night colouring.

I couldn't sleep last night because of the pain in my back and foot so I ended up colouring with promarkers!

Hi all!

Me and Dad found loads of craft stuff lurking in his back room left over from when Mum was alive.

New Goodies

This is what my postman brought me this morning.

I was determined to create a mess later on in the day however a trip down a flight of stairs has saw the end of that temporarily!!!!

September's friendship card swap

With being signed off from work with my back playing up again, I managed to make another card!

This time it was for the friendship card swap on Docrafts forums! :)

Love to shop decoupage with highlights of sakura glitter pens.
Distressed love to shop papers and decorative paper flowers with buttons as centres.
I also used the Dovecraft paper lace heart as a backing also.

Sentiment and card base edged with metallic silver pen.

Thanks for looking!!

My First Ever Tutorial Video!

Hey everyone!

I decided to make a youtube video of how to colour stamped images in the style of forever friends bears.

I had a few people ask me how to do it and it is not the kind of thing you can explain over typed text.

So, I grabbed the camera and made a very quick and rough around the edges video.

Be kind *hides*

They fell in.....honest.

Well I had an appointment in town this morning and stupidly went for a nosey in Millers art store at the paper craft section.
They had the DC stuff in and some stuff may have well ended up in my basket.
Buttons, berries, decoupage and stamps!!

I found the buttons and berries for £1 a pack which I thought was good value!!

Some of the newer stamps are lovely too!

Oops.....bought something else

I really shouldn't leave money in the banks because those late night purchases all mount up!

I am a photographer and have loved this penny black stamp since I first saw it so treated myself.
