Staying Positive for Easter

Term 1 down of the first year of high school - and aren't we glad for the break.  It has been an eye opener for my daughter in terms of assessment and a big step up in responsibility.  This has occupied much of my spare time these last few months as well as becoming a rowing mum.  Don't think this new pastime will work too well with dancing, we shall see.

So, while the creativity hasn't been flowing too well, it was great to come across this sketch and an idea immediately popped into my head.

Given that science is my line of work,  I couldn't resist this stamp set from Clearly Besotted and pairing it with "graph" paper (no idea what brand this paper is).  

What you need
Cardstock - PTI black;  Canson gold
Stamps  and Dies - CB Scientifically Speaking
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black
Black enamel dots

This next card is for my sister in law who has just celebrated a significant birthday and felt she may not have wanted to be reminded of the number.  We will be celebrating with her on Saturday night.  You can't really see it in the photo but instead of sequins or gems I have put droplets of Glossy Accents around the rose.  I can't go past a bit of glitter somewhere, so the black matt has black glitter covering it.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI red, black; X-Press It Blending Card
Stamps - Clearly Besotted Happy Everything, Happy Birthday
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black;  Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics - R27, R39, R59, G21, G24, G28
Glitter Ritz Black
Glossy Accents

This nicely fits with the latest SSS Wednesday Challenge.


  1. Both are lovely! I'm a huge fan of graph paper, and the Glossy Accents worked really well! I remember well the hours we spent on the soccer field with both kids. But I'd do it again in a flash!

  2. These are gorgeous - I love how you used the CB sets - great cards.
    Thanks for sharing your fabulous creation with us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
