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!

Friday's Followers Gallery

Good morning, today is Friday and it's Follower's Gallery time!

The card going into the gallery today is another beauty!  Although Eileen says I'm to blame for her spending lots on money on folders and dies, I have to say that her spends have been well worthwhile if this is an example of her crafting!  So I won't say anything, but WELL DONE!

The Sylized Flower folder has always been a favourite of mine and embosses really well on white cardstock.  It can be coloured with chalk or glitter, but for me plain is classic elegance and with the colours from the Big and Juice Ink Pad range that Eileen has used on the flower and butterfly dies - stunning result!  Pop over and see details of how she achieved this, you will not be disappointed.
Thanks Eileen for your supporting the Cupboard and for sharing your work with us.

Hi Ikki- That card is lovely and it reminded me to ask about embossing cards. I bought some ready embossed to mount my brooches on for the blog shop. Now I have used them up and was wondering if I could manage to do my own. I need an embossing stencil with a plain centre area to fix my brooch to. Any suggestions??
