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 Script embossing folder

One of the things I like doing is to make my own embellishments, mainly because it gives me the opportunity to experiment and mess about!

I made this tag by embossing a piece of silver mirri card with the CB Script folder, then changed the colour with  alcohol inks.  The stamp is from Creative Expressions Birds which, of course, I triple embossed.  Only a wee postage stamp, but just enough to finish off my tag.   A case of less is more!

This is how I used the tag....

A simple, but effective card using alcohol inks to enhance and give life to the embossing.

Wow - you would NEVER know that the tag was originally silver mirri. The AI's have a wonderful effect on it - its great to indulge in some messy stuff from time to time.

Looks brill adorned to your card.
