Funky Fossil Designs - Let the Magic Happen....

 Well, its raining again!! I don't know whats happening with the weather of late but its rained on a Wednesday 4 weeks in a row. Although the last two days have been pretty hard work so I'm glad to have a little rest to try out a cookie recipe and make more Christmas cards but its getting rather frustrating. Especially when I need to try and fit everyone in before Christmas Day....

I wanted to share this card with you using one of the new stamp sets from Funky Fossil Designs and also an experiment I did with some embossing powder that turned out really well:

 So glad I was able to capture the sparkle of the embossing powder, usually I have to get 'up close and personal' so you can see it.

I started by stamping the word image from the new 'Musings A5 Stamp set' using my MISTI and blue inks from Catherine Pooler and Waffle Flower. I adhered a panel of turquoise CS to the card front and then put the stamped panel on a piece of white foam.

I stamped the 'yoga pose' from the 'Serenity A6 Stamp set' on white CS using Versafine Onyx ink. I did it 4x to get really good coverage and then tried something new. I sprinkled over some WOW! Clear Sparkle Embossing Powder, used my heat gun and was so excited with the result. It seems to have a turquoise sparkle to it, so I'm not sure if its picking up on the ink colours I used around it. Will try it again but maybe on pink next time to see what that does.

I fussy cut the yoga image and put it on foam tape, along with the white heat embossed sentiment (from the same 'Musings' set) and glued on some sequins from Neat and Tangled.

I have a few jobs to do in town but I don't really have the enthusiasm to go running around in the pouring rain. I need to take Phoebe to an appointment at 1.30pm so might wait till then and potter inside in the mean time. There is always something to clean (like my kitchen floor) so I'm sure I'll keep myself busy.

Take care




  1. Just don't hurt yourself scrubbing the kitchen floor. Maybe it will stop raining for you to get to Phoebe's appointment. Try meditating like the shimmery woman on your card. She looks peaceful & amazing against that incredible background.

  2. What a stunning card Shona - is your kitchen floor sparkling like you yoga lady now?? I love how you have created the background too - that's one amazing card
    Stay safe
