Happy Mother's Day

With Mother's Day just 2 weeks away, thought id better get my card done for my Mum for this months post!
I used several different stamp sets and products to make this card:
All lined up
Funky flowers
Martha Stewart Leaf and Punch Set
Glimmer Mist
Martha Stewart Double Loops punch
some ribbon and gems too from Sugar and Spice shop.

Above & Below - Close up of the flowers i made from Punches, which i then stamped with the Funky Flowers stamps, and finished off with Martha Stewart Leaves punch, (did you know there is the cutest little ladybird in this punch!)

this is a close up of the flower, which when id stamped it, and used inks to colour around the edges, i used glimmer mists to give them that gorgeous shine. Finished off with little pearls for the centre.

Till next time, take care

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

Happy December everyone Marion xxx

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…
