#stampingsunday - Zentangle Bloom

I decided to give the Blended Bloom a go with Zentangling.......it turned out quite nice I think!



I am a bit limited with my knowledge of Zentangle patterns,  but the good thing is that you just go with what you feel - no right or wrong. Gotta love that and very therapeutic!

I also used the new Kinda Eclectic stamp set.

#stampingsunday - 3D

Sunday all ready!!

I was making some Napkin cards today and ended up with Iridescence Ice Embossing Powder everywhere!!! Well, they are not finished off yet, so I thought I'd share with you a fab Gift Card holder and mini post-it note holder.




What a gorgeous colour combo - Pool Party, Whisper White and Basic Black!

Work of Art cards #4

Here's my last Work of Art card for you.

This time a touch of Christmas, which I was inspired by the wonderful Diane O'Hare and her many creations.
I have used the Mosaic Madness and Petite Pairs stamps sets this time as well.


Hopefully you can see this stamp set is quite versatile, as I must admit when I first saw it, it was no where near the top of my must get wish list.

Ok, so which stamp set shall I obsess with now????

Work of Art cards #3

Here is another card using the Work of Art stamp set.
This card is a CASE from the talented Beth Robinson

It uses both the Work of Art and the Perfect Pennants stamp sets.
I have changed it only in that I didn't add the brush stroke over the saying.

Work of Art cards #2

So here's some more Work of Art cards I've been making.

This set is to showcase 3 of the new In Colors along with existing colours for a monochrome effect.
The new colour is the middle one on each card - Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon and Tangelo Twist.


And this one has four of the 2013-2015 In Colors with Real Red in the middle.
I've used the new Thicker Crisp Cantaloupe Bakers Twine for the bow.

Work of Art cards # 1

I have been busy playing with my new products I was able to preorder.

Here's a few of the cards I made with the new Work of Art Stamp Set.

I have been inspired by the many many cards I've seen posted over the Internet.

The first one is using the new Tangelo Twist card stock, ink and ribbon.
I have stamped the stamp once and then again a second time before inking up to have the lighter shade - very nice effect.
The bud is a retired Pumpkin Pie Brad.


This second one is just stamping the once and leaving some white space there.
I have used Tangelo Twist again with Baked Brown Sugar.
Unfortunately they retired these buttons and stretch ruffled ribbon a few days ago.
