Slimline Hearts Background Die - Whimsy Stamps

 Happy Thursday everyone!

I'm whizzing by today with a card made with a fab-u-lous new slimline die from wonderful


I have an up front apology here - the photo's are grim!  The card is glittery which is no bad thing but trying to get a decent pic in Gloucestershire winter light was difficult!  This is as good as it gets - I do hope you can see enough to enjoy this card!

I created the inky piece of card by blending Distress Oxides in Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire over a piece of Strathmore Bristol Vellum Card.

Then splattered the card with water and Mica Powder. 

When everything was dry I die cut the card with the 
and then splattered white paint over it.  (I do this after diecutting as white paint leaves a slightly raised texture which I rather like and it gets crushed if you add it before die cutting!

I then die cut a piece of purple glittery card with the same die and mounted it behind the inky die cut, showing the edge slightly like a shadow.

I fixed the die cuts to a piece of white glitter card and added a strip of purple glitter card along the left hand side.

Finally I stamped a sentiment from the 
onto a strip of torn vellum and heat embossed it in blue.

Woodland Slimline Die - Whimsy Stamps

Hello everyone!

I hope Wednesday is being kind to you!

I'm here today to show you a card I made which is something a bit different from me as there is no colouring!

That said, I had a lovely time creating the inky background and putting the design together!

Bundle Girl Winter Friends - Stamping Bella

 Hello friends!

This is the last card from me this year - I'm so sorry to not really have made very many!

It has been a fairly mad, bad and sad year every way up!

I did consider that it may be a bit lightweight to keep blogging throughout the awfulness of it all this year but I decided that as it keeps me happy and sane, it might just be doing the same for you!

Twelve months ago I never expected that the world and the UK would be in such a state!

Neither did I expect that a simple slip whilst on a summer walk along the cliff side in Dorset would cause such damage to my leg!  It has been a horrible ordeal to break bones!  The only thing I've ever broken in my life is the speed limit and an occasional nail!  However, it is small fry given what so many others have to contend with!  I have surgery scheduled in January to remove the metalwork in my leg and then all should be good to go!

I am genuinely moved and quite bowled over by the love and support of so many of you - thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I think this beautiful image and sentiment says it all!...
Bazzill Basics Kraft Card

Snowy Trees - Whimsy Stamps

 Hello everyone...

I am such a bad example!... (:

I leave everything until the last minute and am probably the only person still madly making Christmas cards! 

I am so thankful that wonderful
has so many lovely products!

I cobbled together a set of cards using the beautiful

These were so easy to make! (...and did I mention quick)!!!

I swooshed some water colour card through some ink spritzed with water.  (I used Sparkle Pens but you could easily use which ever you have to have to hand.

I then cut a small rectangular piece of hammered white card and die cut the smallest tree in the centre of the rectangle.  ( I eyeballed the sizes and did nt write them down!  If you wanted to, you could cut the tree out first and then cut the rectangular shape to a size you are happy with)!

I cut the inky card 5ml wider than the die cut tree pieces and fixed them together as shown with foam tape.

The sentiments are stamped on in grey ink.

Thank you for popping by!
Happy crafting!
love from Sue...xxx
