Frosty owls

Dearest Minions,

 Here is my latest offering for the less is more challenge- use birds. (The pun is strong in this one...) I am trying to make Christmas cards at the mo, but world domination is manic at the mo and I haven't had as much craft time as I would like (24hrs per day with napping, cheesecake and possibly noodles for variation.)

The stamp is stampotique, sentiment peg letter stamps, background a mask and distress inks, blended and sprayed with water. I then made my own embossing powder with clear powder, diamond dust and a tiny bit of white powder, it really gleams like frost.

I am also spreading my wings on the following challenges:

Jolly Holly Christmas challenge blog - one for the boys lots of male bird watchers about.
Through the craft room door -anything goes
Cards for men- anything goes

t'was a dark night...

white on white winter card

Dearest Minions,

Greetings this a white on white xmas card, using memory box die a circle and scrap of paper not to shabby, although I did a smudge on the stag (gggrrrrr) so it is whitish on white. Anyway this is my DT piece for the ever wonderful TIOT. I am also entering this to Less is more - designer paper as the deer are made with a beautiful flocked card/papers from my mind's eye.

thank you, with roses


I have been after the Soul of the Rose stamps by Oxford impressions for two years and last weekend I finally got my hands on them. They are really rather speacial and here is my first card with them. The sentiment is from an steampunk Inkadioink.

brights! TIOT


This is my DT piece for the latest TIOT challenge which is brights/seasonal colours. This is a really simple card. I used my new lushious hero art stamp- over exposed trees- and then coloured over it with various distress ink. I will grandly name it "firework tree." like totally warhol darlink!

We would love to see your designs, so please go mental with colour.

I am also entering this into:

card mania- anything goes
purple haze challenge blog -anything goes
