Oh Christmas Tree

Well its nearly upon us, just four days to go. And still I find that I am short on hand made cards. People expect them now. So here are three simple black and white Christmas cards with just a hint of colour.
I love the three designs of Christmas tree's that Marion has used in her clear Christmas stamp sets.

For this one, I stamped and cut out the three Christmas trees, added a different coloured gem for the top of each one and mounted them on the card with foam pads. My card was too narrow for "With Love" sentiment from the Christmas scribble writing set, so I chopped it in half. Each word then sat perfectly between the trees.
I left two thirds of the next two cards with "white Space", stamping on the bottom third only.
For this card I stamped straight onto the card and again on another piece of card, cutting out two trees which I then mounted using foam pads. This time I added clear gems to the smaller trees and cerise gems to the larger to look like baubles.

The same principle was used for this card. I added small black gems for the snowman's buttons and used a clear gel pen to highlight his hat.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas. I hope that Santa brings you everything from Sugar and Spice that you have on your wish list and have a great New Year.

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's the first one of the three I designed.... You can check it out on her blog HERE, along with instructions...
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…
