Welcome to my crafty blog and another card using Stampin’ Up!’s ‘plentiful plants’ set. Thank you cards are always useful to have in my stash, so this week’s theme at Global Design Project was very helpful. I’ve used the colours from this week’s Color Throwdown palette, and also picked up the task from Inspired by‘s… Read More gratitude
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been playing with Julie Hickey’s ‘birthday messages’ and ‘fresh florals’ stamps for this card, which is inspired by the challenges at CAS Colours & Sketches and Color Throwdown I’m back to one of my favourite techniques for this card – blending inks. I used Distress Oxides in ‘mowed lawn’… Read More birthday messages
Welcome to my crafty blog and a card for a friend who’s celebrating his birthday this weekend – and I do know that he’s partial to a cheeky little glass of red wine! Stampin’ Up!’s retired ‘half full’ stamp set was perfect for the job, and I took inspiration from this week’s sketch over at… Read More a glass of wine

The fab colours are the current… Read More happy birthday wishes

I picked up their sketch as well for… Read More a pot of pansies
Welcome to my crafty blog and another outing for Stampin’ Up’s ‘artistically inked’ set. I’ve used the colours from the current challenge at Colour INKspiration, which is on Facebook. They aren’t a combination I’d usually pick up myself, but do work really well for floral cards though. I started by making a 6×6 card blank… Read More birthday flowers
Welcome to my crafty blog. Another quick card today – for some reason I’ve been really tired all day, although that may have something to do with the fact that my sister came to stay for the weekend and we’ve been out & about in London. I’m clearly out of practice! I’ve taken inspiration from… Read More plentiful plants
Welcome to my crafty blog on a very grey and wet day in the UK. I’m so glad we went to the flower show yesterday – it wouldn’t have been much fun today with all this rain. I’m continuing on my floral theme, however, inspired by this week’s ‘flower power’ challenge at Global Design Project,… Read More flower power!
Welcome to my crafty blog. I decided to pick out another Stampin’ Up! set that I bought last year, played with a few times and then haven’t used for ages – the ‘many layered blossoms’ dies. I think I need to get a better system going for working through all my stash so it doesn’t… Read More die cut blossoms
