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.

Bonus day for me at Stretch Your Stamps.  This mirror stamping technique came at the perfect time as I needed a puppy congratulations card for some friends.   They are so excited as they recently adopted 2 new puppies (their beloved family pup died a little while ago), I hope they like it!

Over the Edge at Stretch Your Stamps!

Back with a wonderful over the edge technique that I love from Laura.  I thought it would be fun to try and get some bold colour with watercolours, of course I had to add just a little sparkle in the flower centres but otherwise I kept it pretty clean & simple.
