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!

Try a New Technique

I joined a card swap at Technique Junkies this month  and this is my card.  I love their monthly card swaps.  The idea of the swap is to try one of the techniques from their bi-monthly Newsletter.  I have lots to chose from since I have nearly 10 years of Newsletters.

The technique I used this month is called Embossed Colored Pencils. I love the effect the clear embossing powder gives the pencil crayon a richness and depth.

The supplies I used for this card are:

  • Rose stamp by Rubber Stampede
  • Butterfly from my stash
  • Die from Stampin Up
  • Versa Mark Pen
  • Clear Embossing Powder 
  • Prima Color Pencil Crayons
  • Ribbon from my stash
  • Corner Punch from my stash
Thank you for stopping by and have a very creative day.
