Happy birthday – New Wow Trio

I love a Wow Trio, do you? Today they’ve released two new ones, and they’re lovely- to me, they feel very autumnal and rich! For today’s card, I’ve used the Ancient Orient Trio (Tarnished Brass, Vintage Turquoise and Turkish Coffee). I’ve been wanting to try a new-to-me Stamp Your Life project kit from Altenew calledContinue reading “Happy birthday – New Wow Trio”

Rediscovery hop – Beach theme

Today I’m taking part in an Instagram Hop that is designed to encourage you to dig into that stash you’ve got sitting in your craft room, waiting to be used!

Jubilee celebration card

I couldn’t let the Platinum Jubilee pass by without making a card to celebrate! It was the perfect opportunity to finally use my Oh Crumbs stamp set by Heffy Doodle! I stamped and coloured the images from the set with Copic markers, then cut them out with my Brother Scan N Cut. I used theContinue reading “Jubilee celebration card”

E-I-E-I ‘ello!

Hey crafty friends, I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend. Today, I’m sharing another interactive card, this time using the new Platform Pop-Up dies from Lawn Fawn.
