Black Ice Technique

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for popping by today.  I have been experimenting with a beautiful new technique I have found.  It is called the Black Ice technique.  I apologise but this image doesn’t do it justice, I am not the world’s best photographer.  This is a very monochromatic look but still impressive.

I used the champagne foil sheet, black archival ink, versa mark and clear embossing powder to create the look.

If you would like to see a video please let me know and I will do one and post it.  I would be interested to hear your comments on this card and the black ice technique.

Thanks again for dropping by,

Today’s Coffee and Card Class

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Monday!  Being the second Monday of the month it was time for the coffee and card class at Roundtable Coffee in Bracken Ridge where the coffee is phenomenal!  I had three lovely ladies today, Sue, Dorothy and Isa who did a great job of making the card shown here.  Lots of fun.  Here’s a couple of pics from today.

I think next month we may make a male card!  We all seem to have trouble when it comes to making a card for the males!

If you would like to come alone, please call me to book in on 0419721461.

WOW! What a Party!!

Well the guests have all gone, Tilly the dog is dog tired, but we have had so much fun celebrating Phoenix’s 11th birthday.  The girls made two lovely cards and did such an awesome job and also a lovely handbag to put their cards in.  With the french themed party there was pink and black everywhere and even some french poodles from the Birthday Delivery Suite!!  The food was yummy thanks to Linda Symonds and even a couple of the dads helped out and joined in on the fun.  I make the Bonjour sign for the magnetic board where I keep my thinlets and framelits!  I gave this to Phoenix as she might like to put it in a frame.

These are the two cards we made.  The girls also made a one sheet DSP handbag which went down a real treat. Thank you to my wonderful husband who did a great job helping out today as well as the dads who came!

Thanks for a great day everyone!!!

Colouring with blends – Springtime foils

Hi everyone,

How wet is Brissy today!  Can’t wait to see the beautiful green grass in a few days when it stops raining but I guess that means more mowing!!!

Had another play with the stampin blends to colour in the beautiful Springtime foils paper and then fussy cut some of the flowers out to add to this card.  Love the Pink Pirouette colour that Stampin Up has.  Oh and that reminds me that there is only about 8 to 9 weeks left to order your refills and colours of the incolours which will be going out so get your orders in now!  Check out this video that a lovely demonstrator by the name of Helen Read created to remind everyone about the retiring products and retiring incolours.  Cute video!


Hope you have a great day and stay dry and take care on the slippery roads around Brissy!

Until next time!


Springtime Foils

Hi everyone!

Welcome to Wednesday!  While I have Billy asleep in our bed, thought I would whip up a quick card.  Some of the ladies on Sunday were asking about sympathy cards.  These are the hardest cards to make so I don’t do them very often  due to the emotion involved.  But as this is for no one in particular, I found it easier to make.  It is using the lovely new Springtime foils from the second release Salebration catalogue.  As you can see in the picture, I have coloured the flowers and petals using our stampin blends.  The paper below is the uncoloured version which is just as beautiful uncoloured.   These papers are absolutely devine!  Hope you like the card, please let me know what you think.

Hope you have a fantastic day and see you soon!!
