Hey...It's World Cardmaking get your stash out and PLAY.... Here's some INSPO for you..
Need some quick easy Crimbo cards to make, here you go....
WOW embossing powder and a simple triangle punch!!
Distress ink technique, using water to remove the ink (as originally shown by Lindsay mason)
Using the Bazzill Half the Edge strips - gives it dimension and interest
This one was inspired by Barb, I've used my Butterfly Kisses Stamps, and it was only cause Barb told me that you could make a tree from the little "twig" and I was like, "so you can"!!! Ta - Da !!!
This one was designed by Jayne and Polly at Alley pally, so simple all you need is a scalloped circle punch...way to go girls!!!
Here's some other cards just as easy to make, I've mainly used Sugar and Spice/Personal Impressions Stamps along with WOW embossing powders (seriously these are stunning) !!
Stamp and then emboss in another colour over the top
Don't forget to stamp onto your ribbon
Colour your plain white flowers with the Shimmerz Blingz - soooo many options !!
To make the leaves, just punch a circle then pop the circle back into the punch half way and punch again, then repeat on the other side !!
I know we've sold out AGAIN of the Butterfly Kisses set, but bear with us we should have it back in stock in a few weeks...sorry !!
Hope you've enjoyed taking a looksie, if you've ANY questions just drop us a line.

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…
