Homemade Washi Tape

Washi tape is all the rage right now and comes in glorious patterns and colours in rolls.

By taking Sookwang double sided tape and applying it to the back of glossy paper which I had already decorated with alcohol inks, I then was able to cut the paper in the strips of tape and voila! ,I had washi tape!

Floral Delight

Two different takes on same technique

Distress inks applied to craft mat,sprayed with water and white card stock swiped through,dried with heat tool,swiped again and dried between each layer, until I liked the colours. Archival black ink used for images on top. I like how the results vary so much depending on colours used!


Gearing up for a Happy Birthday

Fun card for masculine birthday

Same stamp,same colours!

Again using spring distress inks

Spring Colored Distress Inks

These new colours from Tim Holtz Distress Inks are so pretty. I am sure I will be using them a lot!

Ewe are So Sweet

Distress stains ( Peeled paint,Wild Honey, Weathered Wood) on heavy water-colour paper. Trees from Stampin Up stamped with black Archival ink

Tilth Floral Die Cut

This is another die cut from Memory Box, simple to use on the Sizzix but so intricate. Haven’t used my sewing machine for months but pulled it out to attach this lace border! Used Adirondack Lettuce coloured Dimensional Pearls for accents on edge and corner.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom!

For my wonderful Mom!


Using the Tim Holtz’ rusted enamel technique with distress inks and clear embossing powder, I like the depth of the images
