Masculine happy birthday card

Do you enjoy making cards for men? I have to admit, I have to specifically address my mind to it, as most of my cards probably lend themselves to female recipients! This month is my Dad’s birthday, so I searched my stash and came up with this amazing Hugs Enclosed background stamp from Honey BeeContinue reading “Masculine happy birthday card”

Rainbow Jammy Dodgers!

Yes, you read that right… as soon as I got my new Teariffic Pals stamp set from Time for Tea Designs, I knew I wanted to make a jammy dodger wreath… In rainbow colours! I used Gina K’s original wreath builder to help me stamp the images with even spacing. I started with the jammyContinue reading “Rainbow Jammy Dodgers!”

A mice day to celebrate

Guys, my baby nephew just turned 13. 13!! I can’t believe it. But, it did give me an opportunity to use the new Mice Day to Celebrate stamp set from My Favorite Things, which I’ve been dying to do! If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know I’m a sucker for a shakerContinue reading “A mice day to celebrate”

Hoppy Easter

I can’t get enough of these adorable little bunnies from Mama Elephant! Today I’m sharing some mini slimline cards that I made with this set and the Landscape Edge dies from Time for Tea Designs. I started out by stamping all my bunnies and their Easter eggs in Gina K’s obsidian black amalagm ink, whichContinue reading “Hoppy Easter”

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!”

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”

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”

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”

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 KContinue reading “For our birthday girl”
