Hello crafty friends. So here we are on day 7 of my ’12 Dies of Clarity’ with the ‘butterfly tangle’ die from July’s Craft Club. I have actually used this one before, so thought I’d re-share the link to that post as well as creating a new card. Here’s the one I made earlier, back… Read More 12 Dies of Clarity day 7 – butterfly tangle
Hello crafty friends. Who doesn’t love a cup of hot chocolate? I decided to christen my ‘nothing’s better than’ stamp set from Stampin’ Up!, picking up the themes from the challenges at Inspired by and Inkspirational I attached a piece of brown polka dot paper form my stash to the front of an A6 card… Read More hot chocolate!
Hello crafty friends. I’m still on Christmas cards and have a nice quick one to share today, inspired by a couple of challenges. The theme over at Inspired by is ‘winter beauty’ and I drew on their photo and sketch for the design of this card, together with The Paper Players‘s theme of ‘winter wonderland’… Read More winter beauty
Hello crafty friends. I’ve had a busy day today out Christmas shopping (got it all virtually done!) so I thought I’d share a more general card today for a bit of balance. Regular readers of this little blog will know that ‘Tina’s floral spray’ from Claritystamp is one of my all-time favourites, and I decided… Read More birthday floral spray
Hello crafty friends – well I’m back to Christmas cards today! This time I’ve once again used the retired ‘wreath builder’ dies from Stampin’ Up! – I still find it odd when I produce cards that don’t use ink or stamping (apart from a tiny bit for the sentiment.) I’ve picked up inspiration from a… Read More merry little Christmas

Hello crafty friends and welcome to another late evening blog. I just can’t seem to get myself organised to share my cards earlier in the day! Today’s card uses one of the Christmas rounds dies from Claritystamp – I bought it last year and hadn’t used it so far so it definitely deserved an outing!… Read More Christmas Santa
Welcome to my crafty blog and another Sunday delve back into Claritystamp’s new design club back catalogue. It’s a bit of a contrast from yesterday’s cards, when I was using the most recent Craft Club stamps – the butterfly on today’s card is from April 2017. I’ve taken inspiration from a couple of current blog… Read More Claritystamp new design club lookback – butterfly #126
Welcome to my crafty blog and a Christmas card today. I haven’t shared any Christmas ones for a little while, so thought I’d better crack on with a few more. This card uses Julie Hickey’s ‘oh Christmas tree’ stamp, inspired by the current challenge over at Inspired by (!) I’ve taken a bit of a… Read More oh Christmas tree!
