Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve had a lovely afternoon crafting online with my sister and friend – we’re all members of Claritystamp’s Craft Club, so get together once a month to play with the latest club stamp. What I really love is that we all make very different cards despite using the same stamp.… Read More girl power
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 card inspired by the current theme of ‘brave’ at Time Out challenges. I’ve teamed the ‘happy birday’ set from Claritystamp with the ‘brave and strong’ sentiment from Visible Image (and used another background from my stash in the process!) I started with a stamped background I found in… Read More be brave
Welcome to my crafty blog, and some stamps from Claritystamp that I’ve had for a while but only recently started to use – the ‘hats 2’ set. I thought it would work well with the inspiration photo from Time Out challenges, and the colours from Just Us Girls were ideal. I started with one of… Read More friends are the family you get to choose
Welcome to my crafty blog. I decided to have another play with a Stampin’ Up! set that I’ve struggled to get the best out of – ‘Hydrangea Haven’. Am I the only one who has some stamp sets that look great but I find difficult to put into practice? The current theme at Fusion card… Read More a single flower…
Hello friends and welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card features one of my favourite fruits – I do love a summertime bowl of English strawberries (and they’re also a ‘free’ food on the Slimming World programme!), so I knew immediately what I would use when I saw the latest theme over at Time Out… Read More sweet strawberries!
Welcome to my crafty blog and another masculine birthday card. This one has got a movie theme (I know, I’ve already given it away!) courtesy of the current challenge over at Time Out so I’ve gone with one of my favourite films. It’s such an iconic movie and I knew this Mini image from an… Read More The Italian Job?
Welcome to my crafty blog. Another quick post today, as it’s very close to the deadline for one of this week’s challenges and I don’t want to miss it. I’m really pleased with how this card to congratulate a colleague who’s got a new role has turned out – and it just uses scraps/card offcuts… Read More well done
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been playing with one of Claritystamp’s three way stamps – I love the effects you can get with these. This one uses all three of the stamps, and I picked up the colours from the new challenge at Color Throwdown. The birds and rabbits made me think of spring,… Read More the earth has music
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been making a few more Father’s Day cards, which I’ll be sharing over the next few days, starting with this one using Stampin’ Up’s ‘Whiskey Business’ set. I bought this last year as it was perfect for a card I was asked to make, and it’s been carried over… Read More it’s a whiskey business!
