My favourites of 2019

The last few weeks have been crazy, and I nearly forgot to put together my favourites post for 2019! But here it is - warts and all.

In no particular order, here are my favourite cards of 2019. These are not necessarily Instagram's favourites of 2019, but I don't care.

Wishing you a safe, happy and healthy 2020 :)




































Blog post at Picket Fence Studios

I have a post up on the Picket Fence Studios blog today - here's a sneak peek!

Thanks for visiting :)

Happy birthday, Jim

Today is Christmas Day - Merry Christmas! It is also my brother's birthday, so the most important card today is not a Christmas card!


 I white embossed the Round and Round Background from Simon Says Stamp onto watercolour cardstock, then watercoloured it with Zig markers. I then sprayed the panel with perfect pearls in water, and added a die cut sentiment from Hello Bluebird.

Alcohol ink Christmas

I know, I've already finished my Challenge me a Christmas Card series, but I have one more Christmas card to share.
I'd like to send out an extra special thanks to all 33 of my lovely and talented guests for my Challenge me a Christmas Card series. I really appreciate you all taking some time to join in with my challenge at this crazy time of year.


I added Alcohol Inks to a panel of Yupo, then when it was dry, I cut it into 5 panels of different widths. I adhered them to a white card base, then added a die-cut sentiment from Paper Rose. Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were the finishing touch.


I liked the look of this card, so I made a birthday card to match!


I ued a sentiment die set from SImon Says Stamp, and a sentiment stamp from Birch Press. I used dew drops from Studio Katia instead of sequins on this one.

Stenciled one-layer card for Picket Fence Studios

I have a simple, one-layer card to share today, using a stencil and a stamp from Picket Fence Studios.


I used my Life Changing Blender Brushes to add Distress Oxide inks in Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch over the Points of Interest stencil. I then added the "I Love You the Mostest" sentiment in Picket Fence Studios Black Hybrid Ink.

Challenge me a Christmas Card with Linda Trace

Welcome to "Challenge me a Christmas Card" for 2019! I have asked cardmaking friends to join me in the lead up to Christmas by challenging me to make a card using a specific style, theme, technique or product.



My guest for today is Linda Trace of "Linda Trace Designs". Linda has challenged me to make a card with alcohol ink.

You can check out her take on the challenge HERE

Here's what I came up with:


I made a panel of yupo with alcohol inks in red and pink, and added some pink and gold foil over the top. I then die cut it with a die from Pink and Main, then added a die cut and stamped sentiment from Birch Press.
