Second post of the day

Ok, so here I have used my new MSE stamps that I won. I distress inked the background with Tim Holtz broken china and then stamped with same ink the background stamp. Butterflies are stamped in black soot and coloured in with some copics. I am also using this card for Danni's dreams flutterby challenge #81. Thanks for looking and happy weekend to all.

Stamp sets I won over at Adrienne's blog.

Creative Card Crew Challenge Snowflakes

Here is my card for the Creative Card Crew challenge. Theme this week is snowflakes. I love snowflakes. For this card I have used snowflake stamp & sentiments from MSE which have been brushed with Perfect Pearls. Stamp on ornament is from Hero Arts. I have also used some stickles on the ornament.
I put pop dots under bauble but it doesn't really show on pic.
Thanks for looking..

Another Christmas Card

Yet another Christmas card from me. Not so traditional in colours.. I have used stamps from MSE, Inkadinkado, Kaiserkraft and I can't remember where the background stamp is from. Background has been brushed with perfect pearls. Ornaments I cut out by hand and stamped/embossed with gold embossing powder.

Creative Card Crew Challenge

Vintage style Christmas card.
This is my entry for Creative Card Crew challenge. Theme this week is scallops. I hope my border edge qualifies as scallop. I have used image from the net, stamps are Inkadinkado, Tim Holtz.
I also used cuttlebug snowflake dies which have been inked and distress stickled. Im not sure if I like the quickutz swirl on this card though, the colour and just overall look doesn't look as good in pic as real. I used a bit of perfect pearls on swirls.
Flowers are Prima and my border punch is Fiskars. Thanks for looking..

A few holiday pics

Hi there..

I thought I'd post a few pics from a recent holiday to Cook Islands. We had a wedding to attend and decided to stay a couple of extra nights. The weather was not excatly warm. Quite windy infact and apperently it rains a bit in Rarotonga where we were based. But it was nice anyway. Made a trip to Aitutaki and a few smaller islands where Survivor was filmed. Aitutaki was nice and the water was stunning colour despite the somewhat cloudy weather. My husband went in for a snorkle in the cold water..Last pic is of the massive cocktail, the Island Girl..I'm sure there was about 1 & half litres of cocktail in that glass..=)

Vintage Card

A vintage style card again. I definetly don't fit in to a category of any particular style I think, except oddball maybe =). And I quite like it that way. For this card I used an image from the web, grungeboard, crackle paint, quickutz swirls and yes some more MS butterflies. Roses are from enthaily. And the beautiful corner stamp is from Stempelglede.
