Easel card - cottage.

Black and Gold Christmas

This must be one of my favourite create-a-scene set of stamps by Creative Expressions and I do like to make Christmas cards in non-traditional colours.

Moonlight and seeds

Sunset and seeds

Nativity

Nativity scene, heat embossed, on distress-ink background, and faux-bleached. I love this nativity stamp.

Summer Garden 2

Another Tom Holtz background with heat-embossed images and faux-bleaching techniques.

Summer Garden

This card is made with what has become a favourite technique of mine. The background is created with Tim Holtz distress inks and then spritzed with water. The images are from different create-a-scene stamps, stamped and heat embossed. I've then used a paintbrush and water to 'take out' the background ink.
