Enjoy today

Mind over matter on a Monday can be pretty important especially when it's dark and stormy outside and you need to go to work. Sometimes you need a little reminder to enjoy today.

For this simple card, which looks anything but simple I used the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies to cut the Whisper White and Daper Denim cardstock.  I used the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the message, and Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers, and some left over vellum I had in a draw. 

I love how it turned out and how it looks really complicated but it took about 3 mins in total to make 😀 . Best cards are cards that look fancy but are easy to make. Incidentally this also probably the best I've ever managed to take a photo of my cards. I wish I could remember what I did to make it look so good.

I hope this brightened your day and that you enjoy today.

A good vinatage

If you know me at all you know I love a glass of wine... or two. It should come as no surprise that I fell in love with the 'Half full stamp set'. One of my favourite things about having a glass of wine is the conversation with friends that goes along with it. So it's fun to be able to make some great cards for those friends with our favourite theme as a base.

I used 4 of the stamps from this stamp set in the card, stamping them in Stayz On Black ink and then using my Aqua Painter and some inks I water coloured the wine in the glasses and bottles.  For the sentiment I stamped it in Versamark ink and added gold embossing powder before embossing. A few embellishments to add some layers and depth and it was all done.

The sentiments in this stamp set are really versatile and have you covered from everything from friendship & birthdays to Christmas and new years. A great one for wine lovers. Don't tell but I may have combined a glass of wine or two with the making of …

Cheers to a New Year

Happy New Year! And yes I know it's already March - better late than never right? I don't know about y'all but this year started pretty rough for us. After dealing with some family health issues (aging is never easy) we decided to take off for a week to try and rejuvenate and prepare ourselves mentally and physically for the busy year we know 2018 is going to be. Sure enough the first quarter of year has been big - good - but big. It's when things are crazy like this that I think it's even more important to be kind to yourself, and find something in the every day to give you an opportunity to refresh your body and mind. For me that's been yoga - every day so far this year - here's hoping I make it every day all year... and craft. There's something so good for the brain when you get creative. It really does help you to thrive not just survive!

Here's a little card I made for the new year. I wanted to make some fun cards to give to people at the end …
