Watercoloured card with the Painted Posies embossing folder

Hello! I have been playing around with a new embossing folder, inks and water painters to make today’s card… I started with a card base of Basic White Thick card measuring 11-1/2″ x 5-3/4″, scored and folded at 5-3/4″. I then cut a layer of Highland Heather card to measure 5-5/8″ x 5-5/8″ and Shimmery […]

Pop Up Birthday Box card using Sun Prints suite

Saying goodbye to Hippo & Friends

30th Birthday card featuring Playful Alphabet dies

Hello! Today’s blog is a little bit different from my usual blog as I’ve used some retired favourite Stampin’ Up! products for this card. Today is my best friend’s son’s 30th birthday and I used a very familiar road sign around Edinburgh as my inspiration for his card to celebrate the end of his 20’s… […]
