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 is a masculine birthday one, which any crafter will tell you is more tricky to make than female ones. I’ve been asked to make a few for a friend so had to get my thinking cap on. I’m using another one of my inky mop-up backgrounds from cleaning… Read More Two trees birthday
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. I’ve decided it’s time I started using up some of the inky backgrounds that I create by mopping up spare ink from my craft mat. Today’s card is the first of several over the next few days. I’ve used one of my all-time favourite stamp sets – the ‘birdhouse garden’… Read More hope
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. Today’s card uses another one of the fab stamp and die sets from Julie Hickey Designs – this time the ‘fresh florals’. I love the style of Julie’s stamps, they’re always so well drawn. I’ve used this week’s TicTacToe Challenge grid for my card – I went straight down the… Read More polka dot flowers
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card picks up a technique from Barbara Gray over on her blog, using these great new backdrop stamps from Clarity. You can find her detailed step by step here. I started with the larger of the square backdrop stamps and dabbed Distress Oxides onto it in ‘chipped sapphire’ and… Read More subtle poppies
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. Thanks for joining me in the next instalment of my lookback through the Claritystamp New Design Club since I first joined it. Today’s card features the square texture stamp from May 2013, and has only been used a couple of times over the years. Now I’ve brought it out again,… Read More Clarity new design club lookback – square texture stamp #79
