Welcome to all my blogging friends! I am now a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.

Sunday 3 January 2010



It fits nicely with two of my favourite challenges, firstly, Craftyann
and secondly, Cynthia

My card base is 5.25 x 5.25 to which I added paper from my stash.
The two stamped images are:
Just for You from Papermania
Swirls & Flourishes Set 1 from Personal Impressions.
Both stamped using Oregano Distress Ink from Ranger

The background of the flower is a piece of glossy card which I covered with Ranger Alcohol Inks, Pesto, Cranberry & Caramel.
This was then put through my Cuttlebug using my Stylized Flowers Embossing Folder.

Both sets of stamps are new and the Alcohol Inks were a christmas present from my sister. I am now hooked on these inks so I will be adding to my collection

I hope that my card is acceptable for both challenges.

Hi Christine. This is a beautiful card. I love playing with alcohol inks and love my cuttlebug so it's right up my street.
I've just been following the blog hop trail to see what everyone chose as their favourite projects and I love yours. Those Inkadinkadoo stamps are fantastic. The hop has been great fun hasn't it.
Happy New Year
