It is black tie at Dynamic Duos challenge. As soon as I saw the colours I wanted to make a birthday card for my husband’s 50th. We are planning (well, I am planning) a holiday driving across Australia.

I do apologize for the quality of the photographs.


Paper – Recollections cardstock precious metals
Stamps – Inkadinkado road trip, Stampendous popular phrases, Hero Arts paisley and flowers backgrounds
Ink – Old Paper distress ink and marker
Brads – American Crafts elements neutrals


I was really surprised and thrilled to find out I have won the challenge


I am trying to make these as simple as possible as I will have to make do many of them in such a short time. I think I will try this design in different colours, although I do like the red.

Paper – my trusty simple white nameless cardstock, Best of K&Company

Ink – Barn Door distress ink

Stamp – Technique Tuesday Pocket full of posies

Embossing Floder – Cuttlebug Swiss Dots

Ribbon – Celebrate It

New Year Cards

The Jewish New Year’s Eve is on the 16th of September. As I am on holiday at the moment, I thought it would be a great use of my time to start making all the cards now. I will probably make 10 of these

Paper – simple white cardstock, light blue patterned paper I have had for ages and can’t remember which brand it is
Embossing Folder – Cuttlebug Swiss Dots

Stamp – Inkadinkado Patterned Bugs
Ink – ColorBox pigment Robin’s Egg, Frayed Burlap distress marker

Ribbon – again, no idea what brand it is. Very simple ribbon which I bought by the meter.

I loved the ‘Dynamic Duos’ number 14 Challenge, these colours are so vibrant and for some reason really remind me of Nairobi City Market.

Paper – Recollections white cardstock,  plain white cardstock which was coloured with Bundled Sage and Dried Marigold Tim Holtz distress markers
Embossing Folder – Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy
Stamps – flowers: Think Spring Studio112, sentiment: Beary Fun Fiskars

I have been avoiding this for as long as I could, being very slow to embrace any sort of technological changes, but I guess it is time to take a plunge and hope for the best.
