Hello everyone

This is the new Stamparatus you can order from the 1st June 2018 it is the best stamping positioning tool around as the plates can be moved across and up and down making it great for multiple stamping.
In the video you will learn 5 basic steps to using your stamparatus.


A warning do not let your magnets touch each other as they will easily snap.TH_Stamparatus_Metric_03

I am very excited about this stamping tool and I don't know how I lived without one.
So make sure you get yours.
Much more versatile than the Misti.

Hello everyone.

Sorry it has been a while since I have been on just been very busy with other things.

Today I would like to share with you how I made this card.

base card was Dapper denim cut @ 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
#145601 Glimmer paper layer one measures 4" x 5 1/4"
dsp layer 2 is 3 3/4" x 5"
Basic grey 1 @ 2 3/4 x 1 5/8"
Basic grey 1 @ 2 3/4" x 2 1/2"

A scrap of basic grey approximately 4" x 5 " run this piece through the big shot using brick embossing folder. This will be cut into sections and adhered to the basic grey pieces to create the bricks these can be placed where ever you like I used my basic black watercolour pencil just to give it a bit more shading.
 I fussy cut the dragon and knight from the myths and magic specialty dsp
I cut a piece of dsp approx 1/2" x 6" and layed it on my grid paper to mark the squares to cut out then I layed them on top of basic grey to get the right length that I needed. I cut a triangle for the roof out of the darker grey cardstock. I also cut a grey window just by eye or you could use the home sweet home framelits if you have them.
Stamped the sentiment onto soft sky card stock then trimmed and flagged to size.
stamp colour was archival basic black.
I used dimensionals for the dragon knight and the sentiment has a double stack of dimensionals to raise it higher.
Almost forgot the glitter flag piece

Well I hope you like the project for today.

Well hello everyone, so excited to be here today with some great news.
Seeing as I have been so busy of late, I have decided to do My New Catalogue launch at the Haven Market on June 3rd 2017.
 So save the date, as there will be some awesome products for you to see as well as some give away's and you can play with some Brand new products as well to make and take away with you.
Haven't quite decided on what the give away items will be yet. They maybe some retired items or they may be some new items, it will be a surprise package I think at this stage.

This is the promotional catalogue cover we are allowed to share with you all.
The new catalogue is full of some very awesome products this year and the New in-colours are so vibrant, that they have to be seen in person to really appreciate their beauty.
The new DSP papers are the best I have ever seen, I will have some at the market for you to view.
Some new DSP on it's way order in.

If you missed out on the Eastern Palace Suite bundles (available to 31 May 2017) i have some good news, they are available to order in the New Catalogue from 1st June 2017 but not as a bundle. 
I have had some great fun with the premiere bundle as You can see from previous posts here.

This is all for this post but stay tuned as I will be doing a later post tonight as well.
