I Don't Need A Reason...

I absolutely love this sentiment !!! I mean, who needs a reason to make someone smile, and this card will certainly make someone smile, right !!
This Catherine pooler set of stamps worked so perfectly with our wonderful new Metalline Powders, they work on every detail and give that shimmer that makes you want to keep coming back for more !!
Take a piece of scrap card stock and stamp out a selection of flowers and leaves, embossing in various WOW! Metalline Powders. Do loads and store them in a little bag and when you need a card in a hurry you're ready to go. On the card front stamp and emboss some of the larger circles and leaves. Sprinkle on WOW! Gold Rich Ultra High and heat from underneath, in fact, where possible always try and heat from underneath, you'll get a much better finish. With the matching dies to this stamp set, die cut the flowers and leaves. The Altenew Mini Blossom is perfect for this, as well as being the cutest die cut machine on the market !! Start positi…

Ahhh… For the love of card making...

When you've got good supplies it's easy to make quick, simple and effective cards, and these are no exception…
Here I've used the Catherine Pooler Zen Feather Stamp and Die set

You can find the Stamp set here…

and the Die set here...

On the feather cards I used WOW! Embossing Powder, Bird of paradise and Pink Robin, also First Frost and Kiwi Krush, they emboss beautifully…

If you fancy a quick tutorial on this card check out the link below to see the Face Book live I did.

and lastly when you need one of those 'really quick' cards, three simple flowers stamped and die cut. I used the Catherine pooler inks with the above stamps and dies, alongside a little sentiment from Altenew that I'll be featuring on the WOW! Blog on 4th April. Be sure to check it out !!

The colours I used are as follows :-

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…
