Con-grad-ulations

As soon as my friend Rebecca told me she was going to apply to retrain as a nurse, I knew she’d ace it. She’s super caring and smart and of course she was offered a place everywhere she interviewed! So, obviously I had a card already made and waiting to go when she was offeredContinue reading “Con-grad-ulations”

Hey dumplin’… It’s bento long!

Who doesn’t love a good sushi pun, right? Finally got chance to break out this adorable Gina K set (I Like The Way You Roll), to make this fun little bookmark. I started out by stamping the images in Gina K obsidian black ink and colouring them with Spectrum Noir markers. Next, I fussy cutContinue reading “Hey dumplin’… It’s bento long!”

Patterned paper thank you cards

My daughter turned one a few weeks ago and so I needed to make a bunch of thank you cards for our kind friends and family who sent gifts. I like to make matching card sets when I’m doing thank yous, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to try out a technique I sawContinue reading “Patterned paper thank you cards”

Get well soon

I love this botanical diamond die from Taylored Expressions. It comes with a number of sentiments, so it’s really versatile! On this occasion, I needed a Get Well Soon card for my good friend who, along with her family, is suffering with Covid right now. I started by heat embossing the image in gold onContinue reading “Get well soon”

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, asContinue reading “Alcohol ink floral cards”

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 andContinue reading “Hello baby”

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 alsoContinue reading “Don’t worry, be Slothy”

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 pinkContinue reading “Polkadoodles Valentine’s cards”

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 IContinue reading “Happy Valentine’s Day”
