Welcome to my blog, I hope you have found some inspiration from these talented ladies. I have been really busy working on all new product as I am going on a stamp camp next weekend. I am teaching so I have a lot of samples, but until after camp I cant share sorry. But I am going to share with you a card I have made. I still have not put a sentiment on it, as I feel this one could be used for multiple occasions.  I made it for my mum to give a friend but she said it didn’t really suit the guy, but that’s ok, I have another masculine card to add to my collection. I have used the stamp Set called Moon Lake, this is a beautiful set and to me has so many different uses.


I have stamped on Whisper White in Staz on, then water coloured the image. For this I have just used my Aqua Painter and taken colour from the lids of my ink pads. For the back ground I have used the stamp set called Woodgrain. I have finished it off with some Twine around the image and tied it into a knot. This was a nice easy card to put together and easy to re-create.

I will share one thing I have made for stamp camp, and that is this beautiful flower made using the Bouquet Bigz Die.


I have placed it beside my scissors so you can compare the size. This is huge and takes a whole sheet of DSP. but it was fun to make, and I love the effect it will give as an embellishment on a project.

Thank you for stopping by.

Raccoon Love

Good morning, today I thought I would share with you a cute 3D project my kids will be making this afternoon at craft class. I found him  on pinterest and just fell in love with him. its a great punch art project.

For the box though I have used the retired Fancy Favor Bigz die. I have also used a bit of bling for his eyes as the technique she used would be too hard for the kids to do.

Here is a link to Kimberley Morris’s website:

I have placed a small bag of lollies inside the box.

Thank you for stopping by.
