Getting my glitter on!!

Hello – today I’m over on the Taylored Expressions Blog sharing a card using one of the BEST.THINGS.EVER…. GLITTER!  My blog isn’t called Glitter Me Silly for nothing you know – I totally LOVE it!!  I bought a great set of neon glitters from TK Maxx (one of those “one offs” you find buried under a pile of tea towels!!)  They’re from American Crafts and they are AMAZING!

You're on a roll 1I stamped the roller boots from You’re On A Roll and then “coloured” them in using a fine glue nib and different colours of glitter.  The background was created using Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade (my favourite combo).

Pop on over to the Taylored Expressions Blog and leave a comment for a chance to win this amazing stamp set!!


Faux-marquetry with Taylored Expressions.

Hi there.  I’m over on the Taylored Expressions blog again today featuring a card I made that showcases how amazing the Taylored Expressions steel dies are.  I used the gorgeous Ray Of Sunshine cutting plate and the Tiptoe Through the Tulips dies with some wood veneer sheets.  I used two different shades for a lovely, marquetry-style effect.  I do love how this came together in the end, if I do say so myself (modest much???)

Thanks 1

For all the details on how I made this card please check out the Taylored Expressions Blog.

Thanks for stopping by.



Hello there.  Today I’m over on the Taylored Expressions blog with a couple of funky cards created using the fantastic You’re My Hero stamp set and co-ordinating dies.  I picked this set as three of my children play rock instruments and so this set is going to be VERY useful for them and their rocker friends!

I made 2 cards using one of the guitar images and that amazing splatter background – I LOVE it!

There’s lots of heat embossing going on and with the addition of a few carefully placed sprinkles (Doodlebug) the cards came together very easily (thanks to the amazing stamps of course).
