Welcome to my crafty blag and a quick Christmas card using Stampin’ Up!’s new ‘stars are shining’ set. I decided to go for a bit less of a traditional colour scheme with the palette from the new challenge at Color Throwdown, which I teamed with the layout from Freshly Made Sketches I started by stamping… Read More Christmas baubles
Welcome to my crafty blog and another Christmas card. This one uses the retired ‘Festival of Trees’ set from Stampin’ Up! – a standard favourite of mine. I’ve teamed it with a sentiment from the new ‘Stars are Shining’ set and taken inspiration from the photo at Inkspirational – I don’t have any fox stamps,… Read More celebrate the wonder
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card uses several Clarity stamps, including two for the background. I haven’t used these ones much, but got inspired following Barbara Gray’s live demo last Friday evening. I based this card on two current blog challenges – the layout picks up the new sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches… Read More pink poppies
Welcome to my crafty blog. I had a great morning doing an online class with Joanne James using the ‘merriest moments’ set from Stampin’ Up! It’s a very versatile set and I have fallen in love with the hybrid embossing folder that combines with an outline die to cut out and embossed image! I’d been… Read More joyful Christmas
Welcome to my crafty blog and another Sunday delve back into Claritystamp’s new design club back catalogue. It’s a bit of a contrast from yesterday’s cards, when I was using the most recent Craft Club stamps – the butterfly on today’s card is from April 2017.

I’ve gone with another all-over background pattern, but this time have mixed it up with stamps from the ‘Holland buttons’ set. I started with a piece of Clarity’s ‘Rainbow River’ designer paper (turned to the… Read More paisley pattern
Welcome to my crafty blog and a Christmas card today. I haven’t shared any Christmas ones for a little while, so thought I’d better crack on with a few more. This card uses Julie Hickey’s ‘oh Christmas tree’ stamp, inspired by the current challenge over at Inspired by (!) I’ve taken a bit of a… Read More oh Christmas tree!
Welcome to my crafty blog and a card with a new stamp set that arrived earlier this week – Stampin’ Up!’s ‘delicate dahlias’. I’ve been using quite a few of my older sets recently after tidying my craft shelves, so thought I’d ring the changes with this one. I took the layout from the current… Read More dahlias
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card has got some rather unusual holly on it – I decided to use autumn colours, and I have to say I quite like the effect! I was inspired to try this by the photo on this week’s Inspired by challenges and the layout of the leaves immediately made… Read More autumn holly?
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card is for my son’s birthday – although he’s now in his thirties, he was obsessed with dinosaurs when he was small so I just couldn’t resist going for a card that I’ve based on the Jurassic Park films logo, using Stampin’ Up!’s ‘no bones about it’ set. I’ve… Read More a Jurassic birthday!
