A card for my Mum's retirement

I made this card for my Mum's retirement. I love this stamp!! I have clear embossed the image and used a brad to finish it off. I like the waterfall effect card and just love using ribbon.

Mum loved it! xx

Sunday Stamper - Words

This week I thought I would try something a little different and something not so different! So I made two pieces for the Sunday Stamper which theme was words.

An ATC to start with, I have stamped and embossed with clear and gold powders and used the word "Time".

Secondly I have altered and miniature cup and saucer, I have used the word "Art" embossed in gold, it's a little hard to see from the picture and I have covered the cup and saucer in paints then embellished with gems and mini grungeboard. I am quite pleased with the results.

Sunday stamper - Faces

After receiving a stunning, beautiful canvas from Hels for my birthday I decided to make a canvas for myself (one of those things you mean to get round to but never do!) and base it on the Sunday Stamper theme. It was certainly inspired by Hels but no where as stunning as hers! I loved doing it however and enjoyed getting inky and messy!! I have used all sorts of mediums, hope you like it. By the way its stamping mixed with a few beautiful papers!

Sunday Stamper - Travel and transport

I was over the moon to have this challenge as I had to do a card for Darren's birthday. I have used moon glow sprays to make the background paper which I have torn and inked and wrapped around a white card. I used the moon glows on the tag too. I then stamp a TH car image on to the tag and added some words. Hope he likes it xx

Canvas Crazy! ..... the third and forth!

I have used Perfect pearls and moon glow sprays to create the backgrounds, I used versa mark to help the perfect pearls to stick and sealed them with hairspray. I must say in the flesh the colours are fab! I have stamped using black Stazon and used bottle caps as embellishments. The bottle caps have images in them which have been covered in glossy accents. I used crackle paints on the edges. One of them has some sticky beading on it too. I love them, hope you do too.

From me to you Metal slide box

I have made this box for my next "from me to you" project. It started out as a mint box which had the mirror on the inside. I have covered the box in black and green TH paints. I have stamped on the mirror and added some gems. I am really pleased with the results I hope the recipient likes it!

Dominos Swap!

These are the dominos I have made for the Dominos Swap. I used TH inks and stamped the images using black Stazon. I finished by edging the dominos with gold Krylon pen. Some have gems on.

Christmas Fat book pages

These were the last 5 pages I needed to make for the Christmas rubber stamping fat book list. I used TH inks for the background and the images.

Canvas Crazy! ..... the second!

Again for Lesley's birthday. I have used TH Ink pads, Stazon and some crackle paints. I have also popped on some embellishments along with a flower I made using my Melting pot.

Fat Book page and ATC

This was also for Lesley's birthday. I kept the face theme and used stampbord to create the ATC and Fat book page. I used TH ink pads and Stazon ink to stamp the image.

CD Tin

I made this for Lesley's birthday. I inked the tin with TH Inks and then covered a 2in x 2in piece of card with copper TH dabbers and stamped an image on a piece of glass. I then dribbled some embossing power mix from my heat pot around the edge of the glass to make a frame. I then stuck this to the top of the CD tin. I covered the CD with Copper dabber and inks and placed a circle of stampbord in the centre which had been inked with distressing inks and stamped with Stazon.
