Good evening, it has been a miserable day here, i dont think it has stopped raining all day, it's like winter outside. I have got a couple of cards to share with you. Roy from Dimension Stamps was on Create and Craft today showing some of their new stamps, and a few of my designs were shown. It was nice to see the other design team cards, they had some beautiful designs. My first card I have used distress inks to colour my card, but first I stamped the Rose and the Larkspur flower with Versamark then embossed them with white embossing powder, I then dabbed a couple of distress inks onto a plastic sheet then spritzed them with water, then swished the images across the wet ink to pick up the colours. When the images were dry I cut them out using a square punch, and arranged them in a random pattern. For my second card I stamped the Poppy stamp onto the bottom of a piece of bazzil card with black memento, I then used bleach to take the colour out of the card inside of the poppy flower.


  1. Two gorgeous and very different cards, Mary x

  2. Hi Janette

    Two completely different looks and techniques and both giving a beautiful finished result.

    I love the colours in the first card very much.

    Hope your weather has improved. We have started today with sunshine .. .. I wonder if it will last?!?!?

    Have a good week.

    Love Jules xx
