A Heron Reflection and a Sorry

Hello there,

Thank you for all of your lovely comments on my last post.  I'm here today to share a few more of my Inkylicious samples and I'll share the rest of them over my next few posts.




I'd like to enter my third card into this week's challenge over at 'Allsorts.'  Their theme is 'Handmade Flowers.'  My flower was made using Spellbinders Rose Creation dies.

Thank you for your visit today and I'll be back on Sunday morning with more of my Inkylicious samples x

Inkylicious on Hochanda

Hello there, and I hope that you're all enjoying a happy and peaceful Sunday.

I would like to say a big thank you for all of your good wishes regarding my cold, you are all so very kind and I'm pleased to say that it's slowly improving.

I just wanted to let you know that Inkylicious will be on Hochanda today from 2 - 4pm.  It's been quite a long while since they've been on telly and I was thrilled when Deby asked if I could help out in making a few samples for their show.

I'd like to share with you one of my personal favourites today and I'll be back at some point soon to share more of my cards with you but just for now, here's a little peak at some of the lovely stamps that will be on today's show.


Enjoy the rest of you day and I'll be back soon x

Only a very short post from me today as I'm nursing yet another cold with a sore throat, so it's lots of honey and lemon for me but if you'd like to see more of the lovely samples made by my teamies, then why not pop over to the Crafty Individuals blog where you'll find lots of inspiration.

Take care of yourselves and I'll be back soon x

Anything With Flowers at Stamping Sensations

Hello there my crafty friends,

It's time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations and our theme this time is 'Anything With Flowers.'  Here's my card:


I started by stamping and embossing the BEAUtanical Lily by Bee Crafty.  I then coloured it using Derwent Inktense pencils.  The background was created by using various Distress/Distress Oxide inks and stencils.

We are very kindly sponsored this month by 'Bee Crafty' and the lucky winner will receive a £25 gift voucher.


I was lucky enough to meet Bev from Bee Crafty at the Stamp Magic show at Doncaster last October and she's such a lovely person, so friendly and just as you see her on telly.  It was really nice to be able to thank her in person for sponsoring our challenge.  It was also a good excuse for me to add a few Bee Crafty stamps to my collection.   If you've never tried them before, then I would definitely advise giving them a go.  I am really impressed with them and they leave such a good impression, fabulous packaging too.

I do hope that you'll be able to join us in this month's challenge but please remember that Stamping Sensations is a stamping challenge, so we must see a stamped image as the focal element of your artwork, not just a stamped sentiment or stamping in the background, this means: 
Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

All the details of our challenge rules can be found here

Please note:  If we don't comment on your entry it will be because it doesn't follow our theme to qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third part hosts such as Instagram, Flickr or Facebook etc.  We really don't want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who follow the rules.

That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x

Published in Craft Stamper - February 18

Hello there,

Before I start this post, I would just like to say a big thank you for the many kind comments that I received on my Crafty Individuals samples.  I just wanted you all to know that your kind words are always very much appreciated.

I few months back, I was asked by Jean Hardy of 'Crafty Individuals' if I would like to make a couple of projects for 'Craft Stamper' magazine, and of course, the answer was yes.  Jean made a lovely box and there were two more beautiful projects made by my lovely Teamie Florence Langley.  Jean wanted us to use any of her tree stamps and the bird stamps that were recently released, other than that, it was left to us to create what we wanted to.  It's been so cold recently that I decided to create a winter scene and the stamps that I used were just perfect for this. Don't the sheep look right at home in the snow!

The background was made using Distress Inks and the stamps featured are:

My Second Project
I wanted this project to represent the coming of spring and the warmer days ahead.  These colours here are very true, as the image in the magazine looked a little bleached out. 
Featuring:  CI-453CI-478

The background was made using Distress Oxides, StazOn and tissue paper.  The back was made using Crafty Individuals paper, Versafine and white acrylic paint.

My thanks go to Jean for giving me this opportunity and to Craft Stamper magazine for featuring my two projects.

Wishing you a happy day and I'll be back with you on Sunday morning when we have a new challenge starting over at Stamping Sensations x

More Crafty Individuals Samples January 18

Hello there and a happy Sunday to you all.

If you've been one of unlucky people who's been ill with one of the the colds or flu that have been going around, then I wish you all a speedy recovery.  It feels like it's been winter for a long time now, and I for one, am looking forward to brighter and warmer days.......roll on spring.

I'm here today to share a few more of the samples that I made for the Crafty Individuals shows that were on Hochanda on the 24th.  If you missed them, then you can always catch up here for the next couple of weeks.  I love using 'Tree Stamps' and so I was in my element making these samples:




That's all from me for today but I hope to be back with you all very soon x

Rudolf Days January 18

Hello there,

I'd like to share with you a card that I've made for the 'Rudolf Days' challenge over at Scrappy Mo's blog.  It's the first one of the year and I'm hoping to make a Christmas card each month, right up to November, so here's my first offering of the year:


All of the stamps that I've used are by Inkylicious with the exception of the sentiment which came free with a paper crafting magazine.

I'll be back with you tomorrow as promised with a few more of the samples that I made for the Crafty Individuals shows that were on Hochanda earlier in the week.

Enjoy your day x
