Wonderful Washi Tape

I have a small stash of washi tape that I like to dip into occasionally. I particularly love black and white so I thought I’d have a go at creating a card with the ones in my stash. I don’t remember where these have come from but you could achieve the same style with any tape or patterned paper.



I’ve wrapped the washi tape around another piece of card and used sticky tape to make sure it’s secure at the back. Then I cut the fish tail at the end an mounted it on foam tape. The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Birthday Basic set and the buttons are from my collection.

Just a quick post this week – we’re off to sunny Queensland for a while! Have a lovely week!

Cheers for now



Pretty Felt Colours

Good morning! It’s overcast and drizzly here in Sydney. Not too humid yet so it is actually quite pleasant. I’m planning to head off to do my laps at the local swimming pool later this afternoon, so I thought I’d post before I go.

I have quite a bit of felt that I’ve not used very much, so I decided to try using it on this card.

P1100070 v2

I die cut the circles on my trusty little Cuttlebug and pinned them together with some Kaisercraft brads. The stems are from the Annabelle Stamps Stemmed Flowers set and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp’s Cupcake Party set. The inks are Ranger Archival Ink – Sap Green and Versafine – Onyx Black.

I think it turned out pretty well and I hope you do too!

Cheers for now


OK, here we go…

Hello out there!  This is my first post on my new blog.  I’m planning to post at least once a week with a pic of my latest handmade cards and other odds and sods that interest me.  I might not have much to say but there’ll always be pictures!

Anyway here we go…


I made this one for my wonderful friend Tania’s birthday.  I’ve used a Kaisercraft stamp called Birthday. The background is a technique I picked up from the very talented Kristina Werner at kwernerdesign.com  and it is done using Tim Holtz Distress Inkpads.  Rub the inkpad onto a craft sheet and spritz the ink with water. Then rub the watercolour paper onto the wet ink smudging the colour around. You can dry the paper with a heat tool or leave it to air dry if you like. Then stamp the image using Versamark ink and and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

I mounted the watercolour piece on a some kraft cardstock, stamped and embossed the little scroll at the top and finished off with some crochet thread and a button. The finished piece was then mounted on to my card base with foam squares.

Tania loved it and I hope you do too!

Cheers for now
