The background of this card is made using a spritzer filled with water and some drops of Distress Re-inker by Tim Holtz in Fired Brick and a 'pinch' of Gold Lustre pearl powder from Blonde Moments. The flowers are stamped in Black Soot Distress Ink Pad and topped with clear embossing powder. The embellishment is a sticker I have had in my stash for a while. I don't think the effect has photographed that well, but it looks quite stunning in real life!

Tag with Tim

Here's a tag I made when I went to the Tim Holtz demo day. Obviously all the products used have the name of the man himself attributed to them! I love the clock stamp - must add it to my ever increasing wish list.

Here is a tag made by the man himself Tim Holtz. He was demonstrating how to ink a stamp and this was the way he didn't want to do it, although he thought it was still cool. I claimed the tag for myself and asked him to sign it, which he did. What a guy!

Eiffel Jigsaw

The background papers for this card are from Basic Grey who make the most gorgeous papers. The stamp is from Putting on the Ritz and the jigsaw pieces were a bargain from Lakeland last year. The ink pad I used is by the fabulous Tim Holtz.

Made this card using Dovecraft papers, Cuttlebug embossing folder and a cat stamp from my stash. I was pretty pleased how it turned out and is one I don't want to give away!

Floral Duo

These cards are made using the newish papers from Dovecraft. The message stamp is by Hot off the Press and the floral embellishment is from the gorgeous Prima range.

Footballing Variation

Here's another card featuring Jolly Nation's footballer rubber stamp. The background is made using the Cuttlebug 'happy birthday' folder.

Football Fan

Made this card for a colleague's husband who was 70 recently. I love the simplicity of the Papernation (or should I say Jollynation now?) stamps. The 70 is cut with my Cuttlebug and the Birthday is a section cut from Cuttlebug's embossing birthday folder.
