I created the template free hand on thick cardstock to make a template for the coffee cup, lid and coffee collar. Then I used the templates to cut each piece of colour coordinated cardstock from my stash. The cardstock I chose for the coffee collar is a very finely corrugated paper that I felt best resembles those one gets from a coffee shop. I punched snowflakes from coordinating cardstock and put a wee tiny red jingle bell in the centre. The sentiment is from Gina K "Sparkling Christmas" Stamp TV Kit.

Happy Holidays

Mod Squad Challenge "Trees and Snow"
The sentiment and the snowflake dies are from Gina K Designs.
To create a "shadow" for depth on the snowflakes, I also cut them out in black and placed them just a tad over from the gold ones on top and then popped them up with dimensionals.
The base of the card is gold with tiny white snowflakes. Then a layer of black cardstock, then a layer of white velum with gold snowflakes and finally, another piece of velum that had a pine tree print in black. 
I heat embossed the sentiment on black then framed it in gold sparkle paper. These papers are all from my stash.

My card was published in "Creative Scrapbooker Magazine"

Greek Card for friends


This is a card I made for some dear friends thanking them for a delicious dinner.
The Greek letters spelling "opa" is a phrase we Greeks use to express delight.
Over the years I have been fortunate enough to acquire a small collection of very hard to find Greek stamps. And of course, the card was made with the colours of the Greek Flag.  OPA!!

Spooky Halloween

I had lots of fun with the design of this card. The stamp is comprised of all different themed sections, and therefore, when focusing on one particular area, I had to keep in mind colour coordination to keep it flowing together. 
The medium I used was Twinkling H2O's watercolours.
This type of watercolour has a shimmer/glitter mixed into it and, after adding water to the H2O's, you apply with a watercolour brush. 
Very time consuming method, but the end result is a project well with the effort.
