So pretty


The Memory Box Butterfly Exhibit die is so pretty. I put it over an alcohol inked yupo background and added a greeting from Quietfire Design

Quietfire Design’s Thinking of you


The alcohol inked panel was so vibrant that I didn’t want to take away from that so I used Suzanne’s calligraphy “Thinking of You” stamp from Quietfire designs heat embossed in copper. I then die cut a square and popped it up

Northern Lights Shaker card


Alcohol inks on Yupo background and the Grand Madison Window die by Memory Box. The sentiment is from a Hampton Art set. Unfortunately I couldn’t find my sequins for the shaker part, I know they are in one of these boxes!



Color Burst surprise


I heat embossed the hummingbird from Inkadinkadoo and the Altenew roses in white on Bristol paper. Then spritzed them with water and added Color bursts. The greeting is one by Inkadinkadoo that I have had for years



Stained Glass Window

Another alcohol inked panel, this time using the blending solution on a piece of felt on the blending tool for that wonderful stained glass look. The “With Sympathy” die from Elizabeth crafts and Quietfire design cut from the rest of the panel.


Hummingbird silhouette

I used Alcohol Inks on Yupo but with blending solution this time for more movement in the colours. I also put some Snowcap white mixative in there


Galaxy technique

On Stampnation one of the challenges is to try the galaxy technique, it inspired me to make my first Christmas card of the year



Stampnation has challenges going for World Card Making Day. I am entering this one in the cityscapes one. Distress ink blended background with a taylored expression die.


I am also entering this in Winnie & Walter’s background challenge

World Card Making Day!


I used stampin up’s woodlands embossing folder and put versa mark on the inside before I ran it through the sizzix. Then added added Lindys stamp gangs two toned EP, they are a bit hard to photograph.

Quietfire’s Suzanne ‘s calligraphy happy birthday die and it’s complete!
