These three masking techniques using Washi Tape, from Jennifer McGuire, are really inspiring.

I particularly like the second use - the white outline effect on the flowers is very attractive and I can think of a lot of stamps that this could be used on.

I love Vicky Papaioannou's YouTube videos, her tutorials are such a pleasure to watch.

Here she makes a sweet and simple dinosaur card.

My son complained that I had made a “cool dragon card” for my nephew and wanted one too, for his birthday - he is 24!
So… here is a dragon, a griffin and a pink unicorn.. on a sparkly shaker card!

A really easy, but really effective way of transferring the “left over bits” of an outline sticker so you can use them too.

I have just tried this myself and it worked perfectly.  Certainly a LOT easier than trying to reassemble them yourself!

A simple little woven pouch to hold the 3d glasses for the TV.
Woven on my trusty 1950’s Spears Weaving Loom no 3.
The brown wool is also from the 1950s.  The grey is modern.
Now, do I add some little crochet flowers, or is less more… decisions, decisions.

I couldn’t wait to make a card with my new Lawn Fawn “Critter Ever After” stamps and dies.
Now I need to stamp the unicorn a few times and make a herd of pretty coloured ones.  Of course.

My first attempt at making a digistamp, shown here “raw” and coloured in with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
I think that I need less fussy details in places.. but it turned out better than I expected.
