Same same but different

Hi!  Back again!  I continued playing with the shimmer paint spritzing last night and I tried it with some reinker.  Ooooh the possibilities girls!!  It looked great!!  I tried to take some pictures but they’re not very good.

Anyway, the stuff from my previous card was still on the desk so I continued playing with the sketch (which I loved Keesh!!).


Can you see??  It’s a bit hard to tell but on this Baja background i’ve used the same spritz soloution except with the Not Quite Navy Reinker.  It kind of makes it a bit darker.


I like these colours together!  Anyway, hope you are all enjoying your Sunday.  I’m off to spend some time with the Family!!

Until next time,
Happy Stamping!


Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #41

Hi!  Back again!!  I’m still procrastinating.  I’m supposed to be unpacking boxes but I decided I needed to participate in Makeesha’s challenge this week!!  heehee.  Shhh, don’t tell anyone!!  LOL


I have been dying to give the make you’re own shimmer spritz with the New Shimmer Paint since I saw some of the awesome things done with it at Regionals last week.  It’s great!  I just made it up with Isocol, a wee bit of water, and the Frost White Shimmer paint.  Mix it up in a spray bottle and Bob’s your Uncle etc etc.


I sprayed it on a Baha Breeze Base.  It looks really cool in real life!!  I’ve also used Cherry Cobbler, and Soft Suede.  I think this is going to be a new favourite colour combination!  I’m afraid I had to use an oval as I’ve misplaced (read: lost) my middley bit out of my Circle Scissors!!  (Insert muttering here!).  I’ve also used the new Scallop Trim border punch and one of the delicious Antique Brads.  Yummy!! Ohh oh and the stamps are Growing Green & Great Friend.

Anyway, enough procrastination, I should get to and deal to my family!!

Until next time,
Happy Stamping!!


edited to add: I think I must have been channelling Kirsty Brown this week!!  LMAO  Great Minds Mrs Brown!!!

Don’t hate me…

But i’m in Heaven in the new Studio/Craft room!!  Ooh it’s BLISS to be in my own space again.  It’s twice the size of my last room and so light and bright!  I’ve not moved all my crap errr stuff err  quality crafting supplies in yet but hope to have it completed by the end of this weekend.

Wanna see pictures???  Promise not to be too jealous??  Okay.  Well let me show you some pictures of the space I was creating in “before” the renovation.

old craft room

Cramped.  Messy. No storage for my stuff.  Horrid.

New room??  Much, much better!!  Here it is before I put stuff in it:

craft room empty

Things to note – a yummy yellow wall!!!  I am having an affair with yellow at the moment.  It makes me really really happy.  Take this as fair warning that you will be seeing yellow on the blog. A. Lot. Of. Yellow.  Specifically – Daffodil Delight!!  heehee

I thought I had a whole bunch of photos with pictures of the room with furniture but none of them are really great, so i’ll take some more this weekend and post them up soon.

We’re half way through the school holidays here!  Gosh time flies when you’re shouting at children to stop fighting!! LOL

Anyway, I’ll be back soon with some more pictures.

Until then,
Happy Stamping!


Jemma’s Birthday

Hi! Hi!  Is anybody still out there visiting me??  I’ve dropped off the blog radar a wee bit haven’t I??   Oops!  Sorry about that!!  Soon (as in less than a week! yaay!) I’ll have my new craft room/studio/classroom.  I’ll have room to spread out again, and my own space to create in.  It will be heaven!!  I’ve been sharing a room with hubby for the last 5 months and I only have a wee space (in comparison to my last house!) and I find it a little difficult to work in!  Soon though! Soon!!

Anyway, just a quickie to post the card I made for Jemma for her birthday!  (Happy Birthday again!!)  It was a simple design because I wanted to showcase the roses.


I’ve just used the sanded Background stamp on the Pink Pirouette.  The Whisper White is embossed with SU spots folder and I’ve also used Lots of Tags die for the frame.

The roses are fairly easy to make and look very effective.  I had fun making these!

I hope that you are all well and haven’t abandoned me totally!!  I shall post some pictures of my room soon ok??

Until next time,
Happy Happy Stamping!!
