Just a Hint

How many little pots of odd Brads, Buttons and little Gem Stones have you got in your stash and never seem to get around to using? Well this is a simple way of using them up.

I love black and white cards. It's my thing at the mo. That and Kraft paper.........natural and raw........but that is another project.

I used all the flower stamps from the various sets of Sugar and Spice clear stamps, stamping them on plain white card with black ink. Using a black glaze pen, I dotted some and drew straight lines on others rather than colouring in the petals. Even a black glaze pen on solid black stamped petals adds interest.

But the flowers still needed a little something to liven them up when I placed them on the card. So in the centre of each flower I added a small coloured brad, button or little gem to give just a hint of colour.
The sentiment "Just for You" is from the new All Lined Up clear stamps. I love this sentiment because it's not just for a Birthday is it?
Why Hello, Hello, Hello? Cos I was watching the Bill whilst making this card it just sprang to mind. The Hello is from the Scribble Flower set of stamps.

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…
