About Me

Okanagan, BC, Canada
Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

I Love Your Style

I made this card for a card swap at Technique Junkie.  The idea of the swap is to use one of the tutorials from one of their newsletters.  I chose to use the Shadow Title  tutorial for this card.  I stamped a crackle stamp on my card stock then with my scoring tool I created a grid pattern.  My next step was to create a shadow effect on the tiles with distress inks. 

Once I had my background completed I added some burlap ribbon, added some pendants, sentiment and this lovely stamped image of these ladies dressed in I think clothes of the 50's.  The stamp is part of a wonderful group of stamps that I got to choose from when I won a challenge at the Fashionable Stamping Challenge.   The stamps are by a company from Australia called Flonz

Thank you for stopping by to take a look and I hope you have a very creative day.
