Welcome to my crafty blog. I’d intended to share this card yesterday evening but life got in the way once again so here it is now! I’ve been playing with the linocut texture background stamps from Claritystamp thanks to the recent online session with Barbara Gray – I’m very taken with the effect they give… Read More good luck cat
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card uses a set from the current Stampin’ Up! annual catalogue that I haven’t used for a few months – the ‘birds and branches’. I think these little birds are so sweet, and they work for lots of different occasions. I’m getting back into the swing of combining blog… Read More two bluebirds
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
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card uses the retired ‘painted harvest’ set from Stampin’ up! (again!), and I adapted a design I did last week as I liked it so much. I’ve managed to combine three challenges for this card, starting with the inspiration photo and colours from The Card Concept. I’ve teamed it… Read More sunflowers!

Welcome to my crafty blog and a quick post this evening for two reasons – first because I’m very late sharing this, and secondly because I forgot to take photos during the process! And it’s only Monday…! I’m playing along with two of this week’s challenges with this card. The layout is courtesy of the… Read More happy feathers!
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. It’s Sunday so time for another dip back into Claritystamp’s new design club – this time it’s the ‘follow your dreams’ stamp from August 2015. I’ve combined it with the ‘fly away’ stamp set (I love the energy in the boy taking off into the sky). I started by cutting… Read More claritystamp new design club lookback – follow your dreams #106
Welcome to my crafty blog and some more delicious strawberries! You’ve no doubt worked out by now that Stampin’ Up!’s ‘sweet strawberry’ set has become a firm favourite and it was an obvious choice when I saw the top row on Joanne’s grid for this week’s TicTacToe challenge. I’ve combined it with the colour scheme… Read More more strawberries!
