Tim Holtz Papers

These are 2 cards I made during half-term using Tim Holtz papers. I adore Tim's products but never manage to find the time to play with them fully. I need to invest in more of his alcohol inks very soon!

Oriental Bookmarks

I wanted to make something other than a card for an Oriental swap I am in this month. I decided to make these bookmarks and am quite pleased with the result, but then blue is my favourite colour!

Card for a Friend

A friend I met over the Internet asked me to make a card for her dad's 70th birthday. Although I was quite worried about making it - would she like it, or not - I was quite pleased how it turned out.

Valentine Card

I know I shouldn't say it myself, but I really like this card. I love the colours and think they work well together.

First Kiss ATC

Once again, I used the triple thick embossing method for this ATC. The rub on was a freebie on a Do Crafts magazine and the brads are by Papermania.

Loving Moments

I made this ATC for a swap, but liked it so much I'm keeping it myself! I used triple thick embossing powder, stamped into it then sprinkled on more powder and heated it again. I like the effect I achieved.

Triple Thick Heart Embossing

Triple thick embossing is my favourite technique at the moment. This ATC is a happy accident! The blue embossing powder I thought was clear when I picked it up. I think it works quite well though!
