Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

More Snippets Cards Ready to go!

Hullo there everyone.. well just doing a very quick update here again of some cards I have made. I posted back on this post here.. the cardstock I had saved from the Christmas Bonbons or crackers .. too good to throw away so putting it to good use, on the cards below.

These were very hard to photograph because of the sheen on the cardstock. Used the Britannia die for the poinsettias and also the labels 4 fro the greeting with the Our daily bread stamps set. use various embossing folder, all CBs and discontinued as quite old now. Mostly from the Christmas Winter wonderland set.

Here was trying out my not so old, but very hard Creative memories gilding wax, which upon googling found they recommended softening it with mineral spirits which in Australia is turpentine, (or turps as we call it) and to my delight it worked a real treat.
This card, like the ones above, is also a snippets card well and truly. The base was in my mauve purple bag of snippets, the  background (multiple cuts of the MB Piestra tile striplet die) was left over from another card, the coloured hedgie and butterfly from Penny Black were also rejects from a card years ago now. The verse  from WAW of Isaiah 41:13 also left over. This is what happens when you need a card in a hurry you go through your leftovers :D
  Please check out this month candy for my fifth blogaversary (link here). Candy will go overseas to "Wonderful encouragers" of this blog who chose to enter.

Thanks so much every one for popping over for a peek as chat, and may God bless your day wherever you may be!  (behind on commenting but will catch up)

Shaz these are gorgeous cards - love the glimmer and sheen on the gold ones (ingenious use of the (waste) card), and the hedgie one is so sweet, especially with that beautiful background. The embossing with the gilding wax is amazing.

Betsy said...

Glad you were able to figure out how to get the gilding wax to work for you again, that is a beautiful result on that background also!

What stunning Christmas cards Shaz. The sentiments are lovely. I was interested to read about softening the wax - that's where I've been going wrong! I love that little hedgie and the background looks gorgeous. Barbxx

Woooow your Christmas card is brilliant,
I also have the gilding wax and it works quite a treat, I must add some terps to mine next time as I love the effect on your embossing. I like the red I might add that to my next order from Joanna
All your cards are beautiful as always.
Enjoy your week.
sharon :)

Our shiny golden cards look amazing! Similar designs, yet each card is beautifully unique. A lovely set. I need to make some cards trying to use the same materials too, for the fun and the need to spend up my Christmas card stash. I suddenly realized I need 20 more cards than I had planned for for Christmas, which is bad news for a slow card maker as myself...

Jo Ann said...

Your golden card varieties are awesome as well as your Scripture card. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful project with us this week at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the encouragement of God's Word in Psalm 27:1 which says, "The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?" Hugs and blessings!
