2H1120 Silhouette Christmas cards

2H1120 Silhouette Christmas Cards Created by Jessica Ralph.  Cost $20 per person.  These are a stunning set of Christmas cards using the silhouette Christmas stamps and Tim Holtz Markers.  Nice bright and cheery for Christmas.  I know I will be making more of these.  They are a joy to make and don't take too long at all.  If you are interested in doing these cards please feel free to contact me.

Peacock Colour Challenge

This fortnight's challenge was to create a project (anything we liked), that was in the colour scheme of a peacock feather. The idea was given to me while looking through a fab colour site They have these beautiful combinations.

I wanted to try a combination. Out of my comfort zone. Something that I would not normally choose to play with. Boy, did I get that with these colours.

Rustic Silhouette Christmas Cards

I had some quiet time this afternoon, while all my boys were at a working bee for SES. I took the time to create these set of cards for a wonderful group of ladies that attend my workshops Monday afternoons. We are doing Christmas cards once a fortnight until Christmas.
I have been hanging out to really play with the new silhouette stamps. They are just beautiful.
So, with this uninterrupted time on my hands, I sat and stamped and created to my hearts content. A few hours later, I was quite impressed with the finished cards. These will be going in my pile of "please write up and submit". Just give me a little time to do this. I have three projects going in this week and I am holding 4 workshops this week too.

Have fun creating. Be back soon. With more to share.

Watercolor Paper

 Finally Kaszazz is selling watercolor paper.  Those of you who know me well, know I have been using watercolor paper for years.  Now, I can use it and share what this amazing paper can do.  I have created a set of cards using embossing, distress inks, distress markers, stamps and the blending tool.  I have had a ball.   Love the effect this paper gives to stamping.  You get such a clear image on watercolor paper.  Here is the set of cards.  There are many many many layers of ink and blending to get the final results.  Two of the cards have glossy accent over the top to give the flowers a more lifted look.
