Snowman from Woodware and papers from K & Co. I stamped the snowman using Stazon on acetate and also direct to the card. I painted the acetate with H20s and liked the different effect it produced. The star brads are from Papermania.

The snowman is an acrylic stamp from Woodware (link below). He is coloured in using H20s. I stamped the background card and then cut out the snowman without his arms and present. The present is decoupaged. The Winter Wonderland stamp is from Delta and has been a favourite of mine this year. The snowflakes are from Cuttlebug.

The flower has been dabbed with colour (using a baby wipe) from Distress Ink pads. I tapped parts of it with the Essential Glue Pad and then dipped it into a tub of Gold leaf. The flower is chipboard bought from Poundland. My husband hates pound shops, but even he will agree it turned out ok! The corrugated mat at the back is also a pound shop purchase - can't remember how much it cost though:)

I cut hearts from white card with a Quickutz die and applied Distress Inks with a babywipe. Next I dabbed round the edges with a different coloured pad. Finally I spritzed them with water, waited for them to dry and mounted them on 3d foam. I caught the pointed ends of the hearts underneath a button brad before adding a ribbon.

Made this card with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads. I inked up the stamp and spritzed the stamp with water before stamping on the card. I tapped the ink pad around the edges and spritzed again. I left it to dry before adding a ribbon. I quite like the smudged effect that it left. Not everyone's cup of tea I know, but I am pleased with it.

The stamp is from a range of stamps by Inkadinkado. It's my first purchase from the set, but won't be my last! I stamped the image with StazOn black. The image is coloured using Blending Blox (the pinks) and Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad (broken china). I mounted it using Quickutz photo corners and used a couple of new papers I have as backgrounds.

I made this background with Distress Inks. I covered a sheet of acetate with ink from different coloured ink pads, spritzed it with water and placed white card face down. Next I placed another sheet of acetate over the top and squidged the sheets together. The resulting patterns were a little pale so I pressed an ink pad over the top and spritzed it again with water. I think the whole effect looks pretty good. The butterfly image is made using the new Tsukineko Glue Pad covered with metal flakes.

Here are 2 cards I have made for a recent swap. I have used Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks Colours I have used include Egg Plant, Gold, Cranberry and Lettuce. I used Tim's applicator tool and dabbed the inks onto glossy white paper. The Remember When image is by Inkadinkadoo. The alphabet I used is by Stamps Away.

These are 2 Time ATCs made for a recent swap. The TIME letters were cut on my new Cricut machine using the George cartridge. The stamped images are all by Hero Arts except the lady who is by Personal Impressions and the small watch which is by See-D's. The brown watch is stamped into funfoam and highlighted with a metallic rub-on. The background of the blue ATC is made by scrunching tissue paper and then rubbing over it with a Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad.

These are the tags I have made for the monthly tag swap I am in through an internet group. I struggled this month to think of a topic, but decided as April is the first time I have ventured into the garden since last Summer, and as I stumbled across the gardener stamp that I have hardly ever used, I thought this was the ideal subject! The tiny flower stamps are by Hero Arts and the gardener is, I think, by Fun Stamps.
Yet another card made with the same paper from the 'bargain bin' mentioned earlier. The corrugated card is from the local Pound Shop - a great find by my mum who has always had the ability to search our bargains! The rub-on is from a Spring set purchased from The Works for just 99p. The only item I paid full price for in this card is the Papermania gems. Now I just need someone to buy it and I'll be on my way to making my first million lol.

Here's another card made with the 'bargain bin' papers I mentioned before. I have used jigsaw pieces from Lakeland (as previous) and coloured them with a Brilliance Dew Drop ink pad. The flower at the bottom is one of the Prima Flowers which are widely available.
I made this card with some papers I bought from The Range in Bolton. I have used jigsaw pieces from Lakeland - reduced to half price. I used 'direct to paper' with Staz On in black then stamped an image on top with the same pad. The flower at the bottom is punched using an X-Cut punch with a Papermania 'gem' to finish off.
