On my card today, I used the Ghosting Technique. I'm sure you are saying "What is the Ghosting Technique Anne?".

The Ghosting Technique: Stamp image in versamark, and sprinkle with Clear Embossing powder. Shake off excess powder and heat set. Then using a brayer and ink colour of your choice, brayer until you get your desire colour. Wipe off Swallowtail with a tissue to take off excess ink! How cool is that!!!

Swallowtail Hello Card


Have you seen this beautiful stamp set from the Spring Catalogue? At first I was like that is great, but I don't need it. I tend to shy away from big background stamps as I find them hard to work with and awkward to hold since they are so big. But after seeing all the gorgeous samples on Pinterest, I decided to give this stamp a try. Am I ever glad that I did...I love it!! The best thing about this stamp is you can use it for any occasion!!

My card today was inspired by one that I saw on Pinterest. I love how the Rich Razzleberry butterfly pops on the Crumb Cake card stock.

Accessories: Colour Spritzer Tool, Crumb Cake Marker, Distress Tool, Needlepoint Impression Folder, Big Shot Machine, and Twine

Two of my favourite tools on my desk these days are the Colour Spritzer tool, I love how it adds that extra little detail to my projects and the new Distress Tool, I love how you can add different looks to your project by distressing it!!
