More random handmade cards and craft tools!

My sister requested for 2 handmade cards to send to her friends. This is one of them.
I thought the rhinestones kinda look like water droplets. The bird sitting on the branch is the Magenta stamp. I stamped Chipped Sapphire distress ink and quickly dusted Antique Gold embossing powder, flicked it on the back then heat embossed it. The effect of the stamping is that the Chipped Sapphire ink shows through with gold embossing on top. Decorated with Prima? flowers!

Hero Arts stamped "Remember", embossed with Stampendous Pearl Purple and embossed gold tree. Decorated with gem/rhinestones as the "fruits".
I can't remember the brand of the lace ribbon stamp! Noooo!!
Background colours distressed with Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool, Tumbled Glass and Pine Needles. Lace colour is Tattered Rose, coloured in with Cut-n-Dry pen nibs.

Absolutely uninspired with this one. 
Simple Simple Simple!
Panels are made from scraps (Papersource)
Hero Arts "Thinking of you" stamp, glazed with Glossy Accents.
Background ink blended with Barn Door distress ink.

I hope this can be used as a manly card!!
Card method is called "Triple Time". 
Youtube has a few videos of crafty ladies making cards with that method.
Hero Arts "Friend Definition" background stamp, La Blanche "Clock" stamp, coloured with distress inks: Old Paper, Pine Needles and Vintage Photo.

As you can tell, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Hero Arts stamps!!! I also LOVE La Blanche stamps. I also LOVE Distress Inks! :D

On the other hand, I've received my new toys today from CraftOnline. Absolutely AWESOME website and great prices that you can't really find elsewhere in Australia! I ordered the goodies last Friday and they arrived TODAY! YAY!!

The Xyron CREATE a STICKER is a nifty little machine! No heat, batteries or electric needed to run this little baby. Just stick your die cut or paper, widest 2.5", onto the white label, turn the handle on the side, the paper comes out with a sticky back and voila! STICKER! :D Easy as can be!

The pink Papermania heat tool will replace my blue PaperCraft noisy little heat tool. The pink heat tool is a lot more quiet with less fan force! Goodie goodie!

Inkssentials Glossy Accents. I'm in love! The "thinking of you" card above has the Glossy Accents on, making it look like enamel sticker word. Lovely!!

The Martha Stewart Circle Cutter is still in the packaging... I will give it a whirl soon!!
