Not one in sight ….then like buses three come together

Bad Girl Bernie I missed a blog post on the 12th Jan so sorry peeps but in my defence I have been unwell …I wont bore you with all the details but to make up for it I have not one …not two but three projects to share with you .

The first is using a rubber silhouette stamp which is of an oriental poppy.

You will need 4 circles of card 2 white and two red the 2 white cards need to be cut at 4 inches and 4  1/2 inches the red need to be cut at 4  1/4 inches and 4 3/4 inches so when you layer them up you will have a graduating circle ….

Next ink your stamp in black onyx versafine and heat emboss in clear embossing powder. Then cut through the middle and make an asymmetric cut on both sides of the card as shown in the photo layer onto smallest red circle then onto white and last onto red again and tape to card. add verse as required DSC07170

The next project I would like to share is a tag well two tags using the same stamp but two very different looks …The first is clean and simple a white tag using the Silhouette Grasses which is a grey rubber stamp. How I did this is I inked in Antique Linen distress inks and then taking distress markers using the brush end tap the marker over the already inked stamp I used a selection of different greens for the stem’s of the grasses and then tapped lightly over the tops of the flowers in Peacock Feathers stamped and heated with a heat tool to set and popped a Happy Birthday sentiment on the side .


This is a tag using the Fleather effect with the Silhouette grasses on one side and the Butterfly’s from the Butterfly set on the other all the colours are gilding wax I hope you like them xxxxx
