One set of stamps, one design, myriad cards

Hello lovely ladies. My submission this time round is a simple card design that you can repeat using different stamps from the In A Word set and scraps from your stash to create cards for lots of different occasions and people.

I just cut three lengths of paper from some leftovers I had in my stash, I keep these in 12 x 12 bags in colours so it's easy to find something when I need it. These I inked and tied a bow round each one to make the bows stepped. Then, using a glue pen and glamour dust I added a bit of sparkle to the flower centres on the paper.

I then took a prima flower and stamped it with another Sugar and Spice flower favourite. Whilst that was drying, I stamped the Happy Birthday on another scrap of white, adding the pink bling to the corner and attached it to the flower with a coordinating brad. It's really simple and quick to do but quite effective.

I feel very privileged to have been asked to design some cards using the fabulous Oakhouse Studio Products. Not only does she have some great stamps, ink pads and accessories but she also sells some amazing dyes that are so versatile, I love them !!! You have to check out her pipettes!!

Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
