Glossy card...

These cards for Crafty Individuals are all done on glossy card, one of my favourite surfaces:

Although they use similar stamps, you can make them look very different.

Thanks for looking!

Here are two more glossy cards with Crafty Individuals stamps:

You can see how glossy the card is by the light shining in the middle!

Pearlescent PaperArtsy...

The theme over on the PaperArtsy blog is Pearlescent so I've gone to town on the pearly finish with this wooden frame glass picture using Pearl Glaze and Alison Bomber's stamps:

Head on over there and have a look!

A more vintage look...

These two cards use that lovely big floral stamp from Crafty Individuals CI-443 Floral Festival XL:

You can use it to make a background or, as I've done here cut out the flowers to make them the focal point.
I've worked on a kraft card background that's been coloured with Distress Oxides:

In this background you can see I've stencilled first in gesso using one of the new masks - a leaf

Thanks for looking!

One of a Kind...

Here's a door sign I made for the Craft Barn Blog using one of the Zinsky animals:

They're all a little bit mad, which suits me down to the ground!
