Dreamcatcher Cards... Kaszazz Dreamcatcher and Dreamcatcher Large...


How are you today? Hope you have had some sweet dreams... Todays cards have been created using Kaszazz stamps - Dreamcatcher and Dreamcatcher Large. I have also used a Woodgrain stamp for the background layer.

The cards are created using white card bases, then a stamped and coloured (with a sponge) layer.  Next is another white layer featuring the stamped image, followed by a further layer with the top section of the dreamcatcher mounted separately.  I have then added liquid pearls and sequins as the decorations through the weaving and feathers.

Have a beautiful day!

Mini Album - Adored


A mini album for you  this time

This album has been created with papers and products from my stash. There are six internal pages with pockets, tabs and tags, and plenty of room for photos, stories and other mementos.

The album is bound with rings, so pages can be added or rearranged if desired.

Till next time

Tiger Cards - Kaszazz


These cards have been created with Kaszazz Tiger stamp.
All card bases are black, with the stamping and matting in ivory.

Brick wall was stencilled in Pumice stone distress ink down the left and accross the bottom. The edges were sponged in Forest moss leaving the area for the tiger clear.
The tiger is stamped in black archival, masked, and the leaves stamped in olive. Fern leaf was stamped in fern archival and tea dye distress.
The tiger is coloured with watercolour pencils and waterbrush. The eyes are highlighted with gel pen. Twine was knotted round the bottom and the panel matted and fixed to the card base.

Leaf paper from Earth Elements has a circle die cut from it and forms the card front. The tiger is stamped in archival ink on to ivory card to correspond with the circle aperture. Fern leaves are stamped round the tiger. Tiger is coloured with pencils, the paper taped to the stamped panel and fern leaves stamped to the paper. Twine is wrapped twice round the panel, knotted through a button, and the panel fixed to the card base.

On this card the ivory panel is sponged all over with antique linen distress and then with stormy sky leaving the centre clear. The tiger is stamped with archival and is coloured with inks and a waterbrush. Ink streaks  were added round the edges and fern leaf stamped. This was then matted to ivory card and fixed to the card base. Eyes again highlighted with white gel pen.

All inserts are stamped with Fern leaf.

Striking aren't they?

Dragonfly Cards... Judikins Dragonfly...


We have a couple of dragonfly cards to show you today.  I have used the Judikins Dragonfly stamp which I have coloured with a selection of colours and added glitter and rhinestones to.

The first card has a green card base with a couple of coloured card layers as well as a layer of music patterned paper.  I have also used a honeycomb die threaded with a green ribbon (as a vine growing on a fence).

The second card featuring two dragonflies has a very similar layout to the first card.

I was searching for a dragonfly quote to add to the bottom of my post... I actually found many but have decided to share with you parts of a couple of different ones...

Live like a dragonfly,
Be colourful and just wing it!

Today's cards feature a beautiful stamp from Prima Marketing #580070.  I have created the same card using three different colour schemes...

First black, 


followed by red,

and lastly, purple.

Coloured card bases, followed by a patterned layer, then a matching cardstock layer, finished off with the stamped image on white card.  Rhinestones, ribbon flowers and bows and a brad complete the three cards.

Hope you are having a lovely day!
