• Alcohol ink floral cards

    So, I’m jumping on the alcohol ink trend… I’ve been eyeing up beautiful alcohol ink cards for months, too nervous to try it myself, but it was my birthday recently, so I asked for a few basics to get me started. I won’t go into the detail of how I created these backgrounds today, as […]

  • Happy Tuesday, everyone! How is your week going? I’m feeling a bit more optimistic at the moment, the sun is shining, the vaccine rollout is well underway, and we have a tentative promise of something resembling normality by the end of summer. Good times do (finally) seem to be on the way again! I’ve definitely […]

  • Hello baby

    Hello baby

    I knew as soon as I saw the image of this little bunny sleeping on a cloud that it would be perfect for a new baby card! I started by stamping the bunny onto hot press watercolour paper, then again onto some Gina K masking magic. I used Karin Markers to colour the bunny and […]

  • Don’t worry, be Slothy

    I finally had time last night to play with my new goodies from Time for Tea Designs! I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to try out their Die-Namic Display Card dies, as I’ve seen plenty of cool 3D cards around, but never tried anything like that myself. Seriously, how cute are these sloths?? They’re also […]

  • Polkadoodles Valentine’s cards

    I was recently lucky enough to win the new Hearts & Happiness collection by Polkadoodles. I knew as soon as I saw the two adorable little stamp sets included that I wanted to make some clean and simple Valentine’s cards with them. For the first card, I cut a slimline panel, and made a pink […]

  • Happy Valentine’s Day

    I’d already made a card for my husband but it was a bit… pink. So, when my new Mama Elephant stamps arrived, I had an idea for a more masculine card (but still cute) card using the Wish Upon A Star set. I started by figuring out my scene and placing the stamps where I […]

  • Dandelion Wishes another way

    I am absolutely loving this stamp set at the moment, so I thought I’d do another version with alcohol markers rather than coloured pencils. I decided on the layout I wanted for the scene, lined up the stamps on the page and used the MISTI to stamp them in Gina K obsidian black ink. When […]

    Dandelion Wishes

    Do you ever go through phases with your crafting where you can’t get enough of one particular style or technique? I do, big time! When I first starting cardmaking, I was only really interested in diecutting, and a little stamping. I was never interested in colouring, and certainly not critter cards. Yet, at the moment, […]

  • For our birthday girl

    It’s my daughter’s first birthday next weekend, so I wanted to make her a special card. Not least because she’ll be spending her first birthday in lockdown rather than celebrating with a party like we should be! I started by stamping all of the little foxes from Mama Elephant’s Little Fox Agenda in Gina K […]

  • Hey Mama… You got this

    I recently sent this card to a friend of mine who needed a little reminder that she is doing a great job. I think these strange lockdown times are affecting us all, not least those of us stuck at home with children to entertain and/or homeschool, whilst trying to juggle our own jobs and managing […]

    Heffy Doodle challenge – Tone on Tone

    Hi! Today I’m sharing a card I made for this month’s Heffy Doodle challenge (tone on tone projects). After searching my Heffy Doodle stash, I picked out the Hello Squeakheart stamp set and decided to make my own patterned paper background by repeatedly stamping the cheese image. I mounted the image on an acrylic block, […] Read more

    You Had me at Meow

    Valentines Day is coming up fast, but what if your special someone is a four-legged friend?! We all know how special our pets are, so why not make a card celebrating your own fur baby? To make this card, I started out by die cutting the Dotty Hearts Cover Plate die from soft pink cardstock […] Read more

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year to all my lovely followers. One thing I’d love to do more of in 2023 is memory keeping, so I’m starting as I mean to go on, and sharing a memory keeping page I created with the recent Time for Tea Designs mini-release, capturing some of our favourite Christmas traditions. For the […] Read more

    From Our Home To Yours – no line colouring

    Hey friends, how are you? Are you ready for Christmas yet? Quite honestly, I’m not! I love Christmas, but it seems to have crept up so quickly this year and I’m not feeling festive quite yet – however, getting stuck in to some of my Christmas cards with the new stamps and dies from Time […] Read more

    MFT Card Design Superstar – Coloring Virtuoso

    Well, I’ll be honest – I wasn’t sure whether to enter this card in the competition at all, because some of the entries are just crazy good. However, I did take a lot of care over colouring my characters and I like how the card turned out, so if nothing else, I could end up […] Read more
