Another Southwest theme - embossed lizard and cool scale effect embossing folder for background with Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint inks

Watching a Bollywood movie over the Holidays inspired me…. Spiced Marmalade ink stamp for the background for that Henna effect, and tag resist embossed and using Peacock Feather, Mustard Seed and Festive Berries inks.

Victorian mixed media theme, using Ranger distressing inks and Glossy Accents for the clock faces.

Another inspired card.  Love the coral stamp as it is so textured and the end result looks great.  Glossy accents on the Rising Bubbles stamp gives it very realistic water effect.

Using the beautiful Ornate Leaves stamp by  with clear and gold embossing on black background

Trip to Arizona paid off with some great stamps from - if you are ever in Scottsdale, check out this amazing store with lots of very different stamps and amazing customer service.

This card is with Kokopelli motif and hand distressed background, using a border stamp to frame it.

Using favourite new stamps from   After stamping, I added Glossy Accents to each bubble and the end effect looks exactly like water.

Distressed with Festive Berries and Mustard Seed Rangers inks, using a South West lizard stamp from Arizona (embossed).  Mounted using scales embossing folder and Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed inks.
