sorry, it’s had to be photographed flat, as the Pearlidoodles are still drying.
It’s the first time that I’ve had a chance to take part in Isa’s Ismaki Challenges.

Just to prove I can still do arty. Here’s the Charm to go with yesterday’s page. I wonder now if I should have done an arty page to go with it?
I don’t get to indulge in the use of my Cricut very often, but decided to have a play with the Walk in the Garden cartridge to make a 60th card for the Parental Control’s friend, Jayne.
It was so super easy to do, just cout out the individual flowers, and the 3 flower border, then stamped them with versamark and embossed with the Galactic Gold EP, or stamped with the SU dye ink.
Then layers them over the ribbon.
Just placed some Zoomz in the centres of the border flowers, and tied a bow of ribbon through the button.
I’ve tied lace down the side, and will attach a 60 tag to this later on.
Note: the swirls to the left hand side of the larger flower, were the centre bits left over from cutting out some leaves (they make a great alternative if you don’t have a swirl). I must get a cartridge with a swirl, so anybody got any suggestions which one I should get?
Super easy, super quick (probably 20 minutes including cutting out), and I’m quite pleased with it.

I’ve been very busy at the Kingdom of Blah, and felt a bit tired and emotional when I got home, but soon cheered up after a piece of two of toast, and the cheerful news that it seems the adored (Funny & Gorgeous) Jon will be carrying on the Sunday show. Russell Howard might even be staying (at least for a few weeks). Yay, my Sunday remains intact!

I actually broke out my embossing powders and Ecoline inks last night to make a birthday card or two for some friends next week.
Stamp the Savvy Dahlia both in Perfect Puleria & Aegean Blue, and tie around the purple ribbon.
Then prepare the background image by stamping the heart image from the Magenta Nov/Dec Stamp Club, and then emboss with Chiaro Flo embossing powder.
Paint over the whole thing with the Magenta Ecoline, allowing light and dark areas. When dry, iron off the EP to leave the white image. Stamp the vine from the Nov/Dec pack, and colour in with G16 marker, add Peralidoodles to the small dots on the image.
Over stamp the Magenta flower image in Palette Noir ink, and add the metal flowers/Prima. Matt onto the Razzleberry Light cardstock, and ink with Pefect Pulmeria Versamagic. Mount on the front of the card.
Place tiny dots of Perlidoodles in both Pink and Pearl in the centres of the stamped Dahlia images. Also add three larger dots of Pearlidoodles in the top and bottom righthand edges.
As usual, you can click on the image to view larger.

more makes from the Blush card kit, this time I used one of the chipboard pieces – the heart.
Finger-painted it with Jo Sonja’s Napthol Crimson, then stamped with the Anita’s Heart background stamp in Jet Black StazOn, added Versamark over the top and Chiaro Flo Clear Embossing Powder (SG-me!).
Also added some of the Hero Arts 3mm gems to the flower centres of the floral background paper.
and we are all set to go with this new product now.
You can check it out here.
but we are just waiting for the product labels at the moment. I have popped it in the shop for anyone is wanting some and can’t wait.
Thank you for the suggestions for the name of the new white EP. Please could anyone who’s suggested something so far email me at email@example.com with their snail mail so that I can send you out a jar of the Chiaro Flo.
