Stamping - Snowdrops

Sheen Douglass stamp - Snowdrops

This stamp is so pretty, I have used Distress Inks (two)
on this stamp and then used a damp brush to pull
some of the ink to other areas in the stamped image.

It makes for a very delicate image.
Spell binder die to cut out the image frame,
go green back ground papers, Anita's ribbon and
a magazine freebie tag.

A very simple, but effective card.

This is a wooden box which was bought in its plain
state and I have used acrylic pearl paints to decorate.

Once I had painted at least two coats on and allowed
enough time to dry, I stamped the snow drop image
on the front. 

Sheena's stamps are good quality
with deep etching, so even though the wooden surface
is pitted the image still remains true.

Great for a gift.


I am not into fairies as a rule, but this range
from Papermania is just brilliant.  The colours
are out of this world, and the drawings
are to die for.

Very simple stepper cards but they look
so enchanting the more you look the more
you see!

Neighbour Wood Cards

These cards all come from the Neighbour Wood Range.

I love countryside/nature images  and these fit
the bill nicely.

The first card is a card on a card, just undo the
ribbon bow and put your secrete message inside.

Side stepper card rabbits having fun!  Great for
male or female.

I love this one of the fawn.

I have made the pins from my bead collection
just to add that bit of bling.

A little birdie told me..... another sweat image
and it looks as if it is in the tree.

Hot Diggity Dog Box

I started with a plain wooden box and painted it
with pearlized acrylic paint inside and out.

I then added various items from the Hot Diggity Dog

This is one of my favorite images from the range
and it is decoupaged.

I painted the inside with a different colour I thought
these two colours went well together.


These cards come from the Jayne Nettley Meyhew CD
Again these are very simple, because the work is
already done for you.

I just love how well these have turned out.

German Shephard again this is decoupaged and
kept as a sepia drawing.

This kingfisher has it's wing decoupaged,
just to give added interest.

Gate Fold Elephant Card

Butterfly Cards

Here I have made a selection of very
simple cards.
I have used Papermania Capsule papers, blooms
and ribbons which all match together a dream.

The butter flies are from Anitas range of Flutterbys.
All these cards are on 6" x 6" white cardstock.

The one below is my favorite
