Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card is a bit of a special one – my ‘outlaws’ are celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary! (They’re known as the ‘outlaws’ as I’m not married to their son any more). 70 years is a platinum anniversary, so WOW’s ‘metallic platinum’ embossing powder was the obvious choice for their… Read More A platinum wedding anniversary!
Welcome to my crafty blog. Here’s another masculine card to share with you today, this time using my new ‘enjoy the moment’ stamp set from Stampin’ Up!. I’m not sure that seedpods are around much in spring but, hey, just call it artistic licence! I’ve taken inspiration (and a bit of liberty) with this week’s… Read More seedpods in spring?
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card uses another of the new stamp sets I recently got – this time the ‘corner bouquet’, one of the Sale-A-Bration packs from Stampin’ Up! I’ve taken inspiration from a couple of this week’s blog challenges – TGIF has ‘sale-a-bration’ as it’s theme (hence the decision on the stamp… Read More corner bouquet
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card is something a bit different for me – always good to ring the changes. I wouldn’t normally use so many colours on one card (three is usually my limit), but this week’s challenge theme over at Just Us Girls is ‘rainbow colours’ so what else was there to… Read More rainbow flowers
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m back with another Mother’s Day card, using the new ‘art gallery’ set from Stampin’ Up! – this one is for a friend to send her mum next month. I do really like this stamp set, and decided it would make a great contemporary style card, rather than the more… Read More lovely mum
Welcome to my crafty blog. This card should come with a serious sugar warning – and won’t help me get through those final few pounds to my Slimming World target, that’s for sure! Although I could argue that this is the low calorie version, rather than the real thing… I’ve resurrected another stamp set from… Read More keep calm and eat chocolate!
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been very excited as my order of new Stampin’ Up! stamps finally arrived a couple of days ago (there have been major delays in shipping to the UK thanks to Brexit!) My biggest decision today was to choose which ones to play with first – in the end I… Read More an art gallery bloom
Welcome to my crafty blog. Just a quick post today, as I’m on a training update all day for a new part time role. I’ve delved back into my Stampin’ Up! stash again for this card, with the ‘beautiful friendship’ set, which I’ve used a few times recently. The colours are inspired by this week’s… Read More sending rosy thoughts
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m celebrating a milestone today – this little blog was only started 11 months ago and this is my 150th post! I started shortly after I retired from full time work, and planned to blog a couple of times a week. That gradually increased over the year, and I’ve now… Read More A centenary and a half!
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve used another retired Stampin’ Up! set for today’s card, and it’s one that’s right up my street! The cups and sentiments in the ‘Coffee Cafe’ set work for so many occasions – today’s card is intended to send support to a friend. It’s definitely true in my world that… Read More Life happens, coffee helps!
