Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been playing with more of my Claritystamp designer papers today, this time pairing them with the ‘Hot Air Balloon’ stamp set. My starting point for this card was the current theme of ‘float’ over at Just Us Girls , and I then went to the sketches at Global Design… Read More Up, up and away!
Welcome to my crafty blog. I decided we needed a bright and cheerful card today, as the weather here in London has not been great. This is another one of the new sets from Julie Hickey – ‘floral happiness’, and I thought it was perfect for this week’s photo inspiration challenge from Just Add Ink.… Read More floral happiness
Welcome to my crafty blog. It’s Sunday, so I’m on to the next stamp in my lookback through the Claritystamp new design club – today it’s #92, the ‘row of trees’ from June 2014.

They’ve brought these stamps out in new shapes (which are now on my wish list) but I’ve gone with the large square one for this card. I also took… Read More ombre treescape
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been doing a spot of crafty gardening today with this card – have to confess that I’m not a big gardener, although several of my friends are. I’d much rather just sit in mine with a glass of wine! I am off to the Chelsea Flower Show in September… Read More Plant a garden, water your soul
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been playing with Stampin’ Up!’s ‘art gallery’ set again – I do really like these flowers, especially this little spray. I think this set will definitely be a keeper! I’ve taken inspiration for today’s card from three of this week’s challenges: the layout reflects the sketch over at Freshly… Read More I can do all things…
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been playing with masks again today (and not the facial type!) My new ‘city skylines’ masks from Claritystamp arrived last week and I wanted to do some more cards using the ‘riverside landscape reflection’ set as well, so you’ve got a two-for-one offer today on this little blog. Let’s… Read More more masking!
