Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Cuttlebug embossing and stamped tags

Today I have followed my own advice to pick a paper before starting to colour anything!   
I knew I wanted to make a tag and use a new stamp, but in the end used two tags and 4 stamps.  Distress inks enabled me to shade the tags to the DP's.  Two years ago I never stamped, but these days I have to admit an addiction, add Distress inks, inky fingers and I'm happy! 

The top layer of the flower was made using a Provocraft die, which I embossd with the script folder for texture. 

Have a great Sunday.
