Good enough to eat?

Hello fellow ATN's (all things nice).

The good news is the weekend is almost upon us. And that's rarely a bad thing! I'm all organised this time round and have my project ready in advance. Wonders will never cease.
I've only used one set of stamps this time, the gorgeous Happy Birthday with a Cherry on Top set, and got to play with my stickles collection. Cupcakes, stamping and stickles. Perfect night in really. Ok with wine and friends then.

With the exception of the pink vellum, I made this entirely from bits and bobs I had in my stash, scraps of paper, ribbon, stickles and the threading water punch. You have to love card making for that. I built up layers of stickles on the 'frosting' of the cupcake to give it dimension and mounted it and the cherry on foam pads. Two layers of ribbon also add interest. I only used a single layer of vellum inside the card rather than a full insert to keep the colour light.

Happy stamping!

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!!

I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....
Enjoy xxxx


When it's a dress, of course !!!!
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…
