I really like the floral stamps from Woodware – they’re nice big images and stamp really well so I thought I’d use the one I recently bought for this card. This is similar to another card I made a few weeks back in the way that I roughly coloured the image using Distress Oxides and… Continue reading Large Sentiment, Eclipse, Kraft
I had a cover die I recently bought with some windows and shutters on so thought this would be a good way to cover the ‘window’ part. I have a few dog-related stamp sets but went for the My Favourite Things one which I don’t have dies for. Because of this, once I’d cut out… Continue reading Stencil, Window, Dogs
I needed to make a thank you card for my friend who is having us all round to hers in a couple of weeks (finally we can all see each other indoors!) so ended up with the 3 above elements to put on my card. I love this scooter stamp set I have but have… Continue reading Travel, Masking, Alphabet Dies
I don’t know about anyone else (well actually, I’m not having it that this doesn’t happen to every crafter) but I have LOADS of half-finished projects; there’s folders with random die-cuts, backgrounds, shapes, sentiment strips, sentiment die-cuts… Basically I’ve got bits of cards that I’ve started but then for some reason changed my mind.

I used a Wink of Stella pen to lightly… Continue reading Card Challenge

It didn’t take that long to make and was more paper-piecing than stamping but I like the way it turned out. I die-cut the pop-up cactus out of some teal cardstock and then… Continue reading Card Challenge #4 – 2nd Card
I’ve always had trouble when it comes to making cards for men/boys: it’s not so bad when you know the person you’re making it for because then you can tailor the card to suit them; but when it comes to making a generic ‘masculine’ card options always seem quite limited. With this in mind I… Continue reading Card Challenge #3
I’ve finally tidied my craft desk of all the Christmas paraphernalia and started making some new cards. The following card is for entering into the Simon Says Stamp blog Monday Challenge which has the theme “Something New.” I’ve bought but not yet used the ‘Let’s Toast’ stamp & die set from Lawn Fawn – I… Continue reading Card Challenge #1 and #2
