Wax, fish and Toadstools, what a mixture !

Morning all , it's Monday again so that means Grandma time.
Yes she is fast asleep , so time to blog.
Missed the  Sheena show this morning but will catch up on my IPad when Mia has gone home. The inkoids had another chance to play with the embossing folders again, ther are so many different techniques you can do with these.

This one uses glossy card and the wax paper technique along with three colours of Distress ink. The card didn't finish like this, I decided to add a wording topper to it, felt it needed something else.
I've also had fun recently playing with Create and Craft's  own card stock for a show Jak Heath was on. Out came all the Spellbinders and Tattered Lace dies along with some of Sheena's stamps, remember these ?

The background stamp is one of Sam Poole's from Creative Expressions which was stamped and embossed using clear EP. I used clear as well with the reeds and cut them out, the fish was stamped in black on an gold piece of the mirror.
Still have more Tattered Lace to show here from the last POD,

Love these Toadstool dies, great to add to those fairy stamps and dies but I think this card would be good for a man's card.
Three cards today and what a mixture , hope you like them.
Happy Crafting.


  1. Hi Karen.
    Thanks for the inspiration, have lots of fun with Mia. Take care Kitty.lovely techniques.

  2. Hi Karen. Glad you got to blog while Mia was sleeping, you have quite a while yet before she grows out of needing a nap don't you : )
    What lovely cards : ) Love all 3. The circle background on the fish one is great and what is the background bark? Is it paper or an embossing folder? I love it. Take care.

  3. Hi Mrs B, thanks for your lovely comments, yes the bark one is sneak embossing folder. You get it one from Creative Expressions or I think Sheena had one as well . I used American Crafts card stock and sanded back after embossing.
