I really love this sentiment – and the font on it is really lovely. I used the JustRite Sweet Flowers & Vines stamp set to create a resist background using white embossing powder, then I used some Distress inks as... Continue reading

I'm a bit late blogging my card this week. I'm on holiday in Spain and didn't get a chance to schedule my blog posts before I went. Luckily I brought my laptop with me, so today I'm sitting in the... Continue reading

This is a quick card I made using this month's stamp kit from Simon Says Stamp. I really like these 'doodle style' flowers. I think this set will get a lot of use. I used some watercolours to loosely colour... Continue reading

When I opened my DT package this month and saw these bookmark blanks I was really excited. I don’t veer away from card making very often, and the main reason for that is because I often don’t know what to... Continue reading

This lovely stamp set has been on my wish list for a while as I had to wait for it to come back into stock. It was worth the wait though, it's just perfect for watercoloring. I made this card... Continue reading

Something a bit different from me this week! I had some gorgeous MDF pieces to play with, together with the matching stamp set (By The Sea). Since some of the chipboard pieces were quite large, I decided to get a... Continue reading

As you can still, this Sweet Cherries embossing folder is still one of my favourite things. Sorry if you’re bored of it already! I embossed the kraft card with the folder, then rubbed a white ink pad across the front... Continue reading

I’m really enjoying using the ‘In the Garden’ stamp set, and I love that there are co-ordinating wooden shapes to match the designs. For this card I used one of the wooden topiary trees as the focal point. I coloured... Continue reading

Here’s another card I made with the WPlus9 Freehand Floral stamp set. This time I stamped directly onto the card front. I love the kind of vintage feel these roses have. I added a simple strip of gold glittered card... Continue reading

I’m so in love with this Creative Expressions Sweet Cherries embossing folder. I can’t stop using it. When I first got it, this was the first idea I had for it. I never really think to colour my embossed cards... Continue reading

I just love the colours on this card. I can’t claim the idea as my own though. I saw a card on Clarissa Wiley’s blog ‘Sprinkled with Glitter’ where she added glitter to the bottom of a word die cut... Continue reading

The style of these sentiments from the Just Rite ‘Stacking Sentiments’ stamp set made me think of chalkboard writing, so I decided to go with a chalkboard effect for my card. I stamped the greeting on a piece of black... Continue reading

This might look like a simple card, but the masking involved to create the little scene required a little bit of planning! The stamps are from the ‘In the Garden’ stamp set – I really love all the stitching details... Continue reading

I’ve put together a video showing how I made this pretty birthday card. I used the Zig Pearlescent watercolour paints from Kuretake – they are lovely to work with – high quality like the Gansai Tambi watercolours, but with a... Continue reading

I’m really in love with this embossing folder. It’s called ‘Sweet Cherries’ and I just love the design. It would look lovely with all those cherries coloured in, or glittered (I’m sure you’ll see a card featuring that technique very... Continue reading
