Rock Chick
This card was made with the music notes wheel, grunge rock stamp set and the two step bird punch.

Iris Folding
This is my first attempt at iris folding and was taught to me by the talented Bev Poultney. It was easier to do than I expected but that may have been due to the good teacher, aye Bev! All the ladies in our group that made this card agreed that this technique was fun and therapeutic. Leave me a comment if you will like to see this technique taught in one of my classes.

Gift Box
I had one of my customers ask me to design her a gift box that she could use to put in a selection of cards to give as a gift to her mother. This is what I came up with. It holds between 20 to 25 cards and envelopes, depending on how much embellishments are used on the cards. (ie how thick the cards are)

The lid is made from one sheet of A4 card and the base is made from one sheet of 12 x 12 card. It is stamped with stamps from the popular vintage vogue stamp set and the design was inspired by Shona Edmonds. Both Bev and Shona are demos on my team.

This Luminaire has a battery operated tea light inside. When the light is turned on, it flickers and glows through the 'windows' just as a real candle would do. The window images are stamped onto vellum with staz on ink.
The bands of glitter around the top and bottom of the box are created by sprinkling dazzling diamonds over the exposed sticky strip tape. Very simple really but effective!

Rose Lamp
This lamp is made from a wine glass which holds a battery candle and then the cover sits nicely over the glass. The cover is made from vellum and has the diecuts from the Rose Wonder Stamp set glued on and then coloured with marker pens.

Vintage Style Cards from the Archives:
Here are some cards from 2011 onwards that I have featured in past blog posts:
If you are interested in some of the techniques I used to make the clock card below, scroll to the end of the post to read more.

The Clock Card was for a sketch challenge featuring a big circle. I put a lot of layers on it, to achieve the look I wanted. The clock image is done using a technique called faux linen. The base is glossy white card which has been stamped with background images, then sanded both horizontally and vertically. It is lightly sponged with pink pirouette ink and once again sanded. The finished look is more matte than glossy but with a depth and richness to it that normal white or cream card doesn't have. I have also used the platium shimmer paint all over the card. Some of the paint has been stamped on, some sprayed on and some sponged on. Sorry this is hard to see in the photos.
