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!”

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”

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”

For the first card, I cut a slimline panel, and made a pinkContinue reading “Polkadoodles Valentine’s cards”

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”

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. WhenContinue reading “Dandelion Wishes another way”

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,Continue reading “Dandelion Wishes”
