Hello crafty friends. Today’s card is a birthday card for my niece, who’s off to Paris with her sister this week to celebrate. I thought the colours from Just Add Ink were perfect for a French themed card, and the sketch from Fusion Card Challenge (which I rotated) worked well with Claritystamp’s Paris aperture die.… Read More Paris or die!
Welcome to my crafty blog and another of the new stamps from Julie Hickey Designs – the ‘garden blooms’. I thought of these when I saw the inspiration photo and colours from The Card Concept (especially the pattern on the wellies), and teamed that with the sketch from Fusion (which I rotated) and the theme… Read More spring garden
Welcome to my crafty blog. Well after yesterday’s cards with the latest stamp & stencil from Clarity’s Craft Club, I’m back with my Sunday dip into previous years and this week it’s ‘Santa’s Christmas delivery’ from November 2018. Another one that hadn’t seen the light of day until now, but in my defence I was… Read More Claritystamp craft club lookback – Santa’s Christmas delivery
Welcome to my crafty blog and another die cut from Claritystamp. I’ve gone for paper piecing with this one, rather than ink blending – I love the way you can get such a different look with these aperture dies just by varying the technique. This card was inspired by the challenge photo at Fusion, and… Read More colourful birds
Welcome to my crafty blog and a calorie free cupcake -what’s not to like?! This one fits in perfectly with my weight loss plan. Stampin’ Up!’s ‘hello cupcake’ set was one of the first of theirs I bought a few years ago, and it’s definitely been a keeper. I immediately thought of it for the… Read More chocolate cupcake!
Hello crafty friends. I’ve been making a few more Valentine’s cards and decided to go for a bit of a different look with this one. Black & white isn’t the usual colour scheme for a Valentine’s card, but I was inspired by the chalkboard photo over at Fusion, which I’ve teamed with the layout from… Read More love you more than…
Hello crafty friends. Well it’s Sunday again so here’s the next in my trip back through Claritystamp’s Craft Club. This ‘buddleia’ stamp was from March 2018 – these are such great plants for the garden as they attract the butterflies (although it’s a bit early in the year just now for them to be flowering,… Read More Claritystamp craft club lookback – buddleia #137
Hello crafty friends. It’s another quick Christmas card today, using Stampin’ Up!’s ‘merriest moments’ stamps again with the ‘wintry’ embossing folder. This one has been inspired by the photo and sketch over at Fusion I started by making an A6 card blank from a piece of dark silver card. I then embossed a piece of… Read More leafy joy
Hello crafty friends. Well my resolution to share today’s card earlier in the evening has failed miserably! Never mind, it’s the thought that counts as they say, so here’s a thank you card I’ve made using Stampin’ Up!’s ‘art gallery’ set and ‘expressions in ink’ paper. The current challenge at Festive Friday picks up World… Read More just a thank you
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card uses the ‘friendship flower’ stamp set by Julie Hickey and the layout sketch from Fusion card challenge. I also took inspiration from Fusion’s photo with the red flowers (although these are clearly not poppies) and added in the elements from the diagonal on TicTacToe‘s grid – scoring, stripes… Read More red and stripes
