Merci Beaucoup from Mama Elephant & Me!

Can you believe that it’s already time for the new challenge at Mama Elephant and Me!  This month it’s a ‘Paper Piecing Thank You’ and I’ve wanted to stack these cups for soooo long that I thought that it’s now or never lol.

Do you like my paper pieced gold trim?   I’ve gotta say these cups wouldn’t last long in my house because they couldn’t go in the dishwasher (wink)!

Back with a slightly different card today, I don’t often play with my Distress Inks (because that would mean that I would get ‘ink’ on my fingers…. oh gosh!) but today I had ink everywhere and had heaps of fun too.

I have a publication share from the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine today using one of the cutest sets from Mama Elephant.  Very CAS designs but so much fun to colour and create.  This little monkey was also very lucky to make the cover.

Time for Graffiti at Cards4Men (video)!

One of my all time faves when it comes to masculine cards is the Graffiti technique.  It may be because I get to make a real mess and join up heaps of different stamps sets (which I love to do).  Hope you are having fun with this mini series, I know I’m having a blast making it!

Stretch Your Stamps – Multi-Inking & Gilding”ish’ flowers!

Back with Day 9 and I’m trying Jennifer’s technique Multi-Inking and Gilding: Floral Builder Stamps.  I used some fine glitter to create my stripes and ‘gilded’ leaves instead of embossing them as I was hoping the glitter would shimmer just that little bit more….   probably didn’t expect it to glitter up this much though, is there anything as too much glitter?

Cards4Men – Celebrate Colour Blocking (video)!

Here is my next card in my Cards4Men mini series and like I’ve been saying it’s all about being bold and bright and cas….   colour blocking is perfect on a masculine card and a great way to use up those scraps of cardstock (because you know if you use them up it means you can go shopping again, really!).

A Graphic Ombre Smile at Stretch Your Stamps!

mmmmm,  Where am I???  That’s right it’s now Day 8 at Stretch Your Stamps (well for me it is anyway, I had a hiccough with Day 7 and am still at a quandary).  Loving the graphic look and thought I would try Kristina’s Ombre repeat stamping technique.
