Forest Fairies and Friends

Good morning

What do the forest fairies and their friends do at night do you think?
All stamps used on these cards are from Kaszazz.

I first masked and coloured the backgrounds with distress inks.

Images were then added using archival inks.

Touches of  wink of stella and stardust pens were added.
More shading round the edges to draw the eye inwards, then a coat of distress glaze.

The finished panels were taped to the card bases, glitter glue highlights added, and a glitter glue frame applied.
Stamps used were Kaszazz Forest Fairies, Forest Friends, Forest Floor, Fairy Dust,  Asian Botanicals, Doodle design flowers and stems, Fern Leaf, Springtime, Sea Grass, Grass, Silhouette Leafy Branch  and River Bank.

Add a little whimsy to your inspiration.

Till next time

Mannequin Cards


For these cards I have used Kaszazz Mannequin and Notions stamp sets.

For this card I stamped and white embossed oatmeal card with sweet florals background then stamped the mannequin and fussy cut it out. It was then mounted over the stamped base.  The flowers are coloured with watercolour pencils.

Here, the notions have been stamped on to oatmeal card with black ink and the panel embossed. The mannequin is stamped on to patterned paper then fussy cut and mounted.

The background panel is treated the same as previously. Diamond background was stamped to ivory card then the mannequin stamped and fussy cut. Lace border was stamped to pink card then cut out and fixed over the ivory piece. Washi tape, ribbon, brads, pearls and gems were used to finish off.

I hope you find these designs inspiring.

This card is a double angled easel design.

Stamps used are Poppies from Kaszazz.

A panel of paper has been added inside to write your message.

For this card, the paper and stamps are from Stampin'up,

The flourish die is from Kaszazz and the flowers have been created using Tim Holtz tattered florals die.

Again, a panel was added for a message.
A little inspiration for when you want something different.

Pretty Cards


On going through my paper drawer I discovered this small pack of Melissa Frances papers and a die cut sheet. These pretty cards are the result.



After punching a few paper edges and adding a couple of die cut shapes
I  simply added ribbons, lace, flowers & leaves, brads, gems and Stickles glitter glue.

Spiral Notebooks...


Today I am sharing with you a selection of covered spiral notebooks, different sizes and styles. I have used a variety of dies, stamps, papers and embellishments to decorate the covers...

Spirals on the side - various themes...

Spirals at the top - masculine themed...



These are a quick and easy project. I keep the embellishments fairly flat, so you can easily carry the notebook in your bag/purse etc.

Hope you have a great day planned,
visit us again soon,
