  Today’s post is brought to you by Rock ‘n’ Roll. No, you don’t have to head back to the 50’s and 60’s for this card. It’s a technique called Rock ‘n’ Roll. Cool isn’t it? I inked up the stamp with Marina Mist and then rolled the edges of the stamp in Dapper Denim. It took a little practise but I think you’ll agree the outcome is great.  I added the Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon and some sequins from… Read more »

I’ve been designing shaker cards for my Technique Classes and having a lot of fun along the way. This card is suitable for a male and has lots of celebratory elements.

The sentiment is from Celebrate Today which is a photopolymer stamp set and coordinates with the Balloon Framelits Dies which I have… Read more »

Here’s my card: I needed to make some male themed cards and decided to use the sketch for my inspiration. I just love this Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder… Read more »

Saturday often means Challenge Day and today I’m participating in the WWYS Challenge #78 Sweet Cupcake Challenge. I was excited when I saw this challenge as I have the stamp set. However, it’s one which hasn’t seen any ink yet. It did today after the power was turned back on. The local electricity people were upgrading something and turned the power off at 9 am mid load of washing, but I did have coffee in hand. Now back to the card.  … Read more »
