My shining star

My shining star

Friday 14 September 2018


Hello there! How are you? I do hope you are well. Today I want to record my makes for our coffeepot session on Tuesday. It was a very quiet session with only 1 lady turning up other than myself and my mum. Still, we had fun! Here are the cards I made for it.

All very quick cards this time and using Lavinia stamps and dies.... First one - I used distress inks through a circle to create a backdrop and then stamped on top and added sparkle to the wings.

This one is on a background that was gifted to me by the lovely Linda Simpson many moons ago - thanks Linda! Simple stamping and a little colouring....

More circles of distress this time linked up with a die. I combined this with some Clarity stamps...

For this one I created the background then stamped the seahorse, vegetation and jellyfish before cutting and mounting on the black card.

Finally another distress circle teamed up with a die.

We were busy indeed!

Have a great day!
