I am showcasing some projects made with one of the new release stamp sets from Kindred stamps - Called Bless your heart. 


I created a fold back card using a 6" white square card blank. 

I used paper designs from perfect Backgrounds stamping pad - Monochrome from Hunkydory
I matted the DP on to black card. 
The image was coloured with Shinhan - Touch Twin brush markers. 




My next card is made using a 5" square card blank. 

The background was created using Spectrum Noir sparkle pens - Inspired Violet - from the Spring - Summer set

Again this was matted on to black card stock. 

The image was coloured with Shinhan Touch Twin brush markers. 






My 3rd card is a diamond spring card. I created this  using Hunkydory Adorable scoreboard craft book

This book is brilliant. So easy to use, and very well laid out. 

The Design papers were from Hunkydory - Perfect Backgrounds - stamping pad- Perfectly Natural  

I matted the DP on to Hunkydory Silver Mirror Matts

I fussy cut the image and adhered it with foam pads. 

I added flat Dazzlers to each side to add a bit of sparkle.

I coloured the image with ShinHan Touch Twin Brush markers. 



I hope you like my creations. 

Thank you for stopping by

Christmas Countdown



Good Evening. 

It may be October, but it won't be long until Christmas is here. So I have made a start on my Christmas cards !

I have used the Christmas Cuties stamp set from Hunkydory 


I adore these stamps. They are so versatile. 

I cut a black card base to 6 1/2 "x 5 1/4 " 

I matted this with a piece of white card measuring  6 1/4" x 5" 

I cut a  piece of  Make it Colour card - Measuring 6" x 5 3/4" 

To make the picture I stamped the Eskimo, and the small polar bear with Grey flannel Memento ink. 

I then stamped the again on to a sticky note, to create a mask. 

After masking of the Eskimo and small polar bear, I stamped the igloo, and Large polar bear in the same ink. 


To create the background. I created a mask for all the images, and cut a circle out of a sticky note, to create the moon. 

I then used Stormy sky, and dusty concord distress inks to create the sky. 


The images were coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Brush Markers

Polar Bear & Moon - YR142, YR133 AND YR132

Igloo - PB 185, YR142

Blue - PB72, PB74, &PB76

Purple - P81 & P82

Skin - BR103, BR107, YR133 & YR132

Hair - BR98 

Ground - PB185 YR142, YR133, YR132 AND PB77

I also use Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen to add some sparkle. 

I stamped the sentiment with Versa Mark clear ink pad, and embossed it with WOW opaque white embossing powder. 

I hope you like my project
