Hi Quick post for you. I have a card that I made using the sketch from FreshlyMadeSketches and the theme from CASOLOGY: I inked up an oldie, but goodie, stamp set from SU called Dragonfly Dreams. I stamped the base color and then added gold embossing powder for the body and wing filaments. I used a new background die to create the ovali-ish shape and blended some ink over the top of it so that it would co-ordinate with the dragonfly, and show the pattern from the background die. To finish off, I added some paint splatters with both... Read more →

Hi everyone. Happy Sunday. It's my turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's Tic Tac Toe week!

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great theme for us: I don't often make cards that aren't the usual A2, so it was fun finding elements to fit a taller and thinner card. I created my card using a stamp set that I had never inked up. In fact, I can't even remember where I got it, especially as it isn't my usual type of purchase :-) However, I am a sucker for nutcrackers! So I inked up the nutcracker and colored him - and...
