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”

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!”

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”

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”

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 managingContinue reading “Hey Mama… You got this”
