Punched flower cards

Just finished these 2 cards.. I used an embossing folder on white cards.. then I punched flowers out of patterned paper off-cuts for the pink and purple flowers and I used offcuts of my gel press backgrounds for the card with the blue and pink flowers... I added gems to the centre of all the flowers. The Happy Birthday is from Darkroom Door's Happy Birthday set.




Recycling ATC's

I used make and trade ATC's I no longer do that.. but I have thousands of ATC's so rather than throw them away I have been recycling them so other people can enjoy these pieces of art... the backgrounds for all 3 cards are the ones I made the other day...





July challenge

This the 2nd card I have made using the July challenge stamp..


Some cards I made using the backgrounds I made with my gel press etc.

After having lot's of fun playing with my gel press, embossing folders and Tim Holtz oxide inks.. I decided to make some cards using some of the backgrounds I made...

Been playing with my Gel press, embossing folders and oxide ink

I was playing with my gel press plates today with embossing folders and oxide ink.. I had a lot of fun.... it's how much you can do with a small amount of ink.. when I did my first colour on the gel press I didn't think there was much there but when I lifted the paper and then did the ghost print..I was surprised at the results..





Christmas Easel cards

I made these cards using some freebie embossing folders and dies and some off cut background pieces




Christmas tree cards

I made these cards Using Darkroom Door stamp set, Archival ink , glitter glue and Brilliance ink...
