About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. You can buy the black and white version of Granmargaret Fairy at

Christmas card club - mixed media for Christmas

Mary picked the theme for this fortnight for the Christmas card club - mixed media for Christmas

This was a challenge for me.  I have done some mixed media on journal pages but not usually on cards.


I stamped Stamp It stamp Kings of Orient onto white card.   I have had this stamp for many years.
Painted background with black gesso and burnt sienna acrylic paint.  Painted over star stencil with moulding paste.  Added glitter and glitter pen to large star.  Added dots of glitter.  Printed precoloured holly leaves from We are 3 Holly Leaf with berry printable.  Added red pearls.  Doodled with white gel pen.

 If you would like to see the cards made by the other members of the Christmas Club their blogs are listed down the left side of my blog.

Bonnie has made two Digital Christmas card sets with openings for your photos and is giving them away to the Kit and Clowder facebook group
https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/WeAre3?ref=l2-shopheader-name&search_query=Christmas+card
or you can add other papers and digi stamps
both cards have this year on one card and a blank scroll on the other for you to add your own message.

I made two quick cards, I didn't have a current photo to add so I have added digital stamps.


For card one I used We are 3 Christmas card blue knit added We are 3 paper from Toasty Warm collection behind the opening and precoloured image from E-scape and Scrap Vintage Nativity.

For card 2 I used We are 3 Christmas card green knit and added paper from We are 3 Winter Sunshine paper collection.
Added precoloured image from We are 3 Winter scenes (there are 4 in the set)

You can buy the We are 3 papers, sentiments and digi stamps at
