Mothers Day Card

Unfortunately this card hasn't scanned too well so will look better if you click on it and view close up I think! The background is done with the "direct to paper"technique in shades of pink & green then over-stamped with versamark & heat-embossed with white. The butterflies were stamped on rainbow paper then embossed in white, the upper wings decoupaged and decorated with 3D paint and glitter glue.


This card is for a friend of my daughter who has just taken over as landlord of the pub.

Altered book

Ok - here are the beginnings of my altered book. I think because it is done by me , for me I don't have to follow any rules so can just go with the flow.
The front & back cover is a K&Co paper, the scrolls hand drawn with glue pen & flocked.The frame is chipboard covered with gold
utee & stamped, the picture a rub-on over black utee.The heart is stamped and embossed.
Below are the first 2 pages - I may do more to them later.....or not, who knows?!

Apologies for the quality of these photos!
I did this little book just for fun.It is called "dreams" and the quotes inside follow this theme.(I seem to have been having a bit of a pink moment but I am sure I'll get over it!)

The book is made from mountboard, coloured with inks , patterned with bubble wrap printing, stamped & embossed with white . The front cover is made from acetate.

Metal notebook cover

This little notebook has a cover made from thin sheet metal in gold which has been stamped & heat embossed with verdigris embossing powder. The centre embellishment is made from shrink plastic which has been coloured & distressed then stamped into whist still hot & a green gem in the centre.
This is my entry for the Lots to Do Weekly Challenge.


This kcould be a key ring or handbag charm - I used white shrink plastic (which has been lurking in the craft box for a long time waiting for inspiration!) used an Anna Griffin stamp & Jumbo Java & Pixie Dust Versamagic ink to colour , punched the holes then shrank it down, then added the metal tag & rings.


Pennant swap hosted by Monalisa on Lots to Do. The theme was "distressed" I used papers from Cosmo Cricket & some chipboard embellishments.

Recipe swap

Recipe swap hosted by AngC on Lots to Do - recipe was 1 button, 2 suares 1 image and green somewhere on 1 atc, 1 skinny & 1 arch.

Fabric bookmark

Fabric bookmark - the base fabric is a scrap of khaki linen which I have stamped & embossed in candy turquoise & gold then added the stamped image, also edged in gold & added the ribbon. The inner of the bookmark is thin mountboard but I would probably use fabric interlining or paper in future as it is a bit too chunky.
