relax…

Hello crafty friends. Today’s card uses the ‘in the moment’ set from Stampin’ Up! – I did an online class with Joanne James using it last month, but haven’t had it out since. It’s not my usual style, but a good opportunity to practice my colouring skills. I took inspiration from Time Out‘s ‘on vacation’… Read More relax…

April showers

Hello crafty friends. Welcome to another card that features quite a bit of die cutting, using Stampin’ Up!’s ‘tulip’ dies. This week’s theme at The Paper Players is ‘April showers’ and Time Out challenges have gone with ‘spring’, so tulips seemed an obvious choice. The ones in my garden are just coming to the end… Read More April showers

puppy happiness

new life

Hello crafty friends. Today’s card uses Stampin’ Up!’s ‘birds and branches’ set, which I always think is great for a slightly different new baby/ baby shower card. I’ve used it quite a few times in various ways and thought of it again when I saw the theme of ‘new’ for the current challenge at Time… Read More new life

you inspire me

Hello crafty friends. I’m sharing a card today using Stampin’ Up!’s ‘delicate dahlias’ set that was a freebie as part of the last Sale-a-bration. I have to confess that I haven’t used this set very much, but I do like two-step stamps with outlines and infills. I’ve picked up the theme of ‘inspiration’ (for inspiration!)… Read More you inspire me
