In between the rain showers today I managed to take a few photos of this card using the December Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. I was intrigued to try the Rainbow Embossing Glitter included in the kit and combined this with the lovely graphic tree image from the Gifts Of Love stamp set to stamp a Fog, Lake Shores and glitter forest.

On a panel of white card I started with the two dye inks first, stamping a random pattern but leaving space for three glitter trees. These are stamped in Versamark, sprinkled with the Rainbow Embossing Glitter then heat set. The body of the glitter is clear embossing powder which when heat set traps the glitter flecks inside so no messy glitter falling off your card later on :D In Lipstick Red ink I stamped the sentiment so it overlapped the trees slightly.

I couldn’t resist using the cute critter from the Gifts Of Love set again. Initially I thought it was a dog, but after great debate where it was suggested to be a cat, mouse and fox I think the general consensus was cat :D So I stamped the cat and presents directly on the panel with Memento Tuxedo Black and then stamped them again on spare white card, colored with Copics and trimmed out. To give a finished look I blacked the cut edges with a Memento marker before glueing on top of the stamped images on the panel. This way I had the images overlaying the forest but you still had the nice details of the scarf trim and bow on the present. Oh and I also stamped and colored part of Dexter the pig from Simon & Dexter Christmas so I could borrow his santa hat!

To finish I added a couple of strips of the PinkFresh Studio patterned paper, stickers and sequins from the kit before foam mounting the panel on a top folding Fog card base.

Gifting a basket of cards to a local old people

Sorry the lighting is awful here with more rain and barely any light so this photo is rather grainy but I wanted to post this today as part of the Share Handmade Kindness challenge from Jennifer McGuire.

This is my hall table; I use an antique blanket chest that used to be my Great Aunt’s and the little inlaid wooden box, that used to be my Great Uncle’s. Brother and sister, these two relatives of mine were both classical musicians with traditional values but a total hoot too! Unfortunately they have passed away but I’m left with the memories of them and one of those is their love of correspondence. I’ve got a treasured collection of silver pencilsletter openers and beautifully penned letters, cards and postcards. I think for our elderly generation snail mail has so much more meaning, after all there were no texts or facetime when they were younger and many haven’t got to grips with modern technology.

This week the Share Handmade Kindness challenge concentrates on kindness for strangers. All this got me thinking; as a card maker I create a lot of cards and I send a lot of cards but I usually have a few more than I need that family and friends enjoy being able to use. However, today I’ve gathered together this basket of cards and I’m going to take them to the local old people’s home. Many of the residents aren’t mobile enough to get to the hight street to buy a card so I’m hoping having a basket of cards available to them will enable them to send a note to a friend or relative that they might not have been able to otherwise. I think my Great Aunt and Uncle would approve :D


Also in honour of #sharehandmadekindness I have the winners from my posts this last week.

  • From 17 November post Dee Earnshaw “Gorgeous delicate colors and pretty. Love it:0”
  • From 20 November post Kim “Oh how I LOVE your plaid cards! Just gorgeous! Love me some plaid, I’ll have to try it! Thanks for the explanation of tartan vs. plaid. I never knew that!”
  • From 21 November post Varada “Lovely card as always, Debby. Love your coloring.”

Congratulations Dee, Kim and Varada, ! I’ve emailed you to get your snail mail address, but if for any reason my email doesn’t find you, please get in touch. Many thanks.

I couldn

One of the techniques I’ve most enjoyed exploring in 2015 is watercoloring and if you are a regular visitor here then that’s probably no surprise. As such I was particularly delighted with the watercolor paintable prints Suzy Plantamura has designed for Simon Says Stamp included in the From All Of Us release. There are 12 designs in the pack which are printed on the smooth side of Tim Holtz watercolor card so they are perfect for watercoloring. With something for everyone the designs all have a different feel from quotes from the movie Frozen to gingerbread houses but it was this snowman that I couldn’t resist. You can see all the designs in my video walk through of the new release with these watercolor prints being shown at around the 2.10 minute mark.

I couldn

I taped the snowman print to a piece of old mount board to stop any warping, covered the polka dots on the scarf with masking fluid and when dry spent a relaxing few minutes painting with Winsor & Newton tube paints. After removing the masking fluid, there wasn’t much need to accessories but I did add some rock candy distress glitter to the tree and snowflakes. The sentiment is from the Simon & Dexter Christmas set, stamped in Versamark on black card and white heat embossed before trimming in to a banner.

I couldn

The print is sized at 4.25 x 5.5 inches but I cut a slither off each edge so that I could add it to an A2 white card base but before mounting I added adhesive backed wood tape around the edges of the base which easily adds a lovely rustic feel to the finished card.

    Hi there, Debbie!
    i’m loving your precious snowman. the colors are wonderful. As good as you are at watercoloring, its hard to believe how long you have been doing it. I didn’t realize that they made those cards on distress WC paper. that is so wonderful.
    I’ve been up all night, its about 8:30 am here. I will go to bed soon. I have the best time looking around to see what everyone is doing.
    I have been really watching your props in your photos. they are really lovely. I was able to go to michaels yesterday and I went through the store looking for small items. I found some cute things. i’ll be making some cards and putting them on instagram soon.
    well, i’m hoping you will have a great day. I loved todays card. hugs, treenReplyCancel

Its frightening seeing the smoke plumes in the sky, knowing its coming from someone’s back yard. We could do with some of that winter cool of your cute little card, or at least some rain. Anyway, thanks for the moment of distraction away from the heat! I must say I love your blog :)ReplyCancel

Tartan inspired thank you cards. Find out more by clicking on the following link:

You’d think living in Scotland I’d know the difference between plaid and tartan but when stamping and stencilling for today’s blog hop to celebrate the new From All Of Us release from Simon Says Stamp it got me thinking!

“With most every tartan, the pattern on the stripes running vertically is exactly duplicated on the horizontal axis too. Basically, this matching pattern in both directions will create a grid … When looking at a simple plaid, you’ll notice that the stripes — either in color, size, or pattern — are not the same in both directions.” Source

So there you go, I guess the patterns on my cards are tartan, being symmetrical in both directions, except perhaps for my wonky stamping :D

Tartan inspired thank you cards. Find out more by clicking on the following link:

Either way, the pattern today was inspired by the wonderful Kristina Werner, Day 2 of her Holiday Card series had a wonderful watercolored tartan. So inspired to reach for red and black I started with Lipstick Red card and for the bold pattern stamped wide Slate stripes with the Basic Stripes set. For the smaller tartan I used the same Slate ink but sponged through the Gingham stencil. Then for both patterns I chose a skinny stripe to stamp in Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink.

Tartan inspired thank you cards. Find out more by clicking on the following link:

Having got two panels of pattern I took the Thanks Scallop Border die and cut it from White card to overlay the bold pattern, cutting it a second time from Wood Tape for the letters spelling out Thanks. This is then mounted on a White Card base and tied with twine.

Tartan inspired thank you cards. Find out more by clicking on the following link:

I cut the smaller patterned piece with the Thanks Scallop Border, again using the Wood Tape for the letters, adhered this to a card base and tied with twine then rounded the corners of the white areas on each card. To accent I added leaves in Midnight Green and a few enamel dots for berries.

Tartan inspired thank you cards. Find out more by clicking on the following link:

The Birch Wood envelopes matched perfectly with the wood lettering and I get a real feeling of open fires and Scottish hills with these cards! Probably accentuated by my neighbours son playing the bagpipes LOL.

If you’d like more tartan/plaid inspiration here’s a few I picked up from Pinterest :D

  • Dottie J

    Here in the US, it’s all plaid. What caught my eye on your beautiful cards is the contrast between the scalloped edge and the plaid. Normally,I don’t round corners on cards that have lots of square or rectangular elements, but on these cards it adds a bit of elegance and works beautifully. Makes them feel even more festive somehow.ReplyCancel

    I think us North Americans tend to use the word plaid regardless of whether we are talking about plaid or tartan. I generally only hear the tartan used when talking about a kilt or something along those lines. Well, whatever you call it, it’s fab! Beautiful cards.ReplyCancel

  • Marie Butler

    I love your cards! The tartan patterns are great!ReplyCancel

  • Maureen Hayes

    Oh Debby,

    I love tartan plaids, always have, and am amazed at how you made this pattern. The cards are gorgeous, and I can see how you could adapt your idea for any time of the year, making this die very versatile. I LOVED the inspiration board you included below, you had my tartan plaid, plus a kitty cat, what more could I want?! I am currently away from home at a major medical facility going through testing and treatment and missing my kitty terribly. This made me smile through my pain and tears and I can’t tell you how much that meant to me. Thank you for making my day better.

    Big hugs,

  • Kay N.

I found you and followed you. soon, I will have an afternoon with a cup of tea and looking at your boards.

  • lisa a mares

    A plaid/plæd/(PLAD) is a cloth made with a tartan pattern wrapped around the waist and cast over the shoulder and fastened at the front. The literal Gaelic meaning is “blanket”.
    Tartan is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colours.
    Tartan is often called plaid in North America.ReplyCancel
