About Me

My photo
I live in Wattle Grove NSW and I'm married to a great guy. We have 3 fur-babies, Abbey the Dachshund x, Benny the Maltese x, and Chocco the cat. I am addicted to card making, scrap booking, and OTP's... basically anything papercrafty! I'm also a mixed media wannabe. I've been card making for the last 20+yrs and never thought it would last this long! I'm also a Stampin' Up! demo. We move all over the Country and have lived in 6 states in last 13yrs!

Hello hello!

My husband loves to inspire me, and my crafty friends, to step outside the box or our comfort zones. He'll often grab an ink, a punch, a framelit set and stamp and issue "Matts Challenge!". He'd love to extend that challenge to Periscope and left us a post it note with his challenge. 

Here's my scope explaining it all: https://ktch.tv/8yxD

* Cupcake Punch
* Blushing Bride Ink
* Gorgeous Grunge stamp set
* Emboss Folder - any

I will edit this post once I have completed my creation.

Here's my entry for #mattschallenge 

I used the Extra Large Polka Dots TIEF to create the background. The cupcake is stamped with 2 images from Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and mounted on a 2 ½ inch circle that I embossed with Distressed Dots. "Celebrate" is a wooden embellishment that I coloured using Blushing Bride ink mixed with Gesso (video here: https://ktch.tv/8BXWthen coated with clear Wink of Stella. I had to finish the card off with some silver Glitter Tape. 

Here's the video of me finishing this card https://ktch.tv/8B-9
