Love You Longer

Love You Longer

is a great sentiment stamp from Visible Image that can be used for so many things.

I’ve combined it with the feather from Learn To Fly Again for this card.

 

The background is made using alcohol inks and the sentiment is masked off and stamped in two parts.

I’ve made a quick 5 minute tutorial on the technique for creating this background

which can be found here on Youtube.

It’s Just A Number

It’s Just A Number
at FSC this month.
That can be anything to do with clocks, special age, birthdays, anniversary, random numbers whatever you like really with numbers.
I’ve made a door!
Now…you might think that is an awfully looong street with this number on the door? Probably the longest street in the world!
After making the door I couldn’t think what number to put on it…
so I’ve used my birthday numbers lol
A little while ago I received a lovely surprise package from Shirley with door stamps in it (thanks so much Shirley). This was the perfect opportunity to use them.
The background was some scrap card from some experimenting with alcohol inks.  It had a gorgeous streaky effect. A wood grain stamp over the top of it gave it some character ~ and then the stamps did the rest.
I think it looks kind of real.
The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the same theme.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
 be inspired, and maybe join in our fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 picked by the DT as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!


Just a reminder that I am a stockist of Visible Image, Rubber Dance and Stampendous stamps in Australia.

Heralding in the New Year

Herald In The New Year
This jazz player from the “Jazz it Up” set seemed like the perfect way to kick off the new year.
I hope everyone had a fantastic night for the New Year’s celebrations, partied hard and stayed safe.
For me…it was down at the beach, slouching back in a camper chair and letting the fireworks fall down right over the top of me. Catching up with old friends, meeting new ones and having a couple of quiet drinks…it was another great night of seeing out the old and heralding in the new year.
This is the beginning of my 2nd year with Visible Image and I can’t wait to see what exciting things Mark and Helen have in store for us all.
Mark and Helen have also settled into their new HQ and are raring to go.
The background for this one is quite simple, using alcohol inks. 
The brightness of the colours make the silhouette of the jazz player stand out.  This Jazz It Up set has been a favourite of mine since the very beginning…so versatile and full of fun! 
I love the new additions to this set and what has been introduced across the whole range at Visible Image.  The new stars from the Feel The Beat set were a perfect finish for this card.
For me, I have been adding to my stock and now have quite a good range of Visible Image stamps for sale in Australia….so, exciting times ahead. The link to the Visible Image shop is on my sidebar, along with my e-mail addy for any enquiries.

FSC – Trees

Trees
is our theme this month at FSC.
We all have some tree stamps right?  Now is your chance to play with them to your heart’s content.
This card is a simple Christmas card. Christmas seems to creep up on us doesn’t it?
The background is made using a mix of blue alcohol inks.
I love how this gives a real mottled effect, perfect for a night sky.
When you add drop or two of the blending solution, let it sit for a minute and then blot, it has a bleaching effect.
After working out roughly where the words would go, I used the blending solution to lighten this area.
The trees is a stamp from Stampendous called
‘Silent Night’
To finish I have splattered some white paint from a paint pen…I think it adds that starry night look. And a little white gel pen around the branches finishes this card off.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the same theme.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
 be inspired, and maybe join in our fun.
