It’s Your Day!

Hello. Yesterday was my lovely friend Fiona’s birthday and I just had to make her a card using her favourite colour purple… It also gave me an excuse to use 2 new stamp sets that I bought in the recent Stampin’ Up! 24 hour sale; Around The Corner and Crackle Paint. I love a bargain. […]

Mosaic Mood sketch challenge

Hello. Today’s project is a card made for the weekly sketch challenge set by Patricia Smith in her Facebook Group “Crafting Stamping Club – Smiths Crafty Creations… I thought that the background sections were a bit like tiles and thought Mosaic Mood would be the perfect designer series paper to use. I hope you agree… […]

Band Together birthday card

Hello and happy birthday to me! I thought as it’s my birthday I’d share a birthday card with you, using the awesome Band Together Bundle… I couldn’t decide which of the beautifully ornate dies to use, so I used a total of 4 of them! Who says less is more? Not me, when it comes […]

Delightful Day shaker card

Hello and thanks for joining me. Today’s card was created for this week’s ‘Crafty Stamping Club – Smiths Crafty Creations’ sketch challenge… The image uploaded on the Facebook Group was a bit blurry and I thought it was an oval instead of the circle so that’s what I used for this card… It would work […]

Magnolia birthday card

Well Written Happy Birthday

Hello. Today I want to share with you the card I made for my husband’s recent birthday. He’s not a man for a lot of fuss so I kept it clean and simple. As my old favourite Happy Birthday die has retired I used the Well Written dies instead… I used the new 2019-2021 In […]

Happy Birthday with party hats

Hello! Today I’m showing you yet another Stampin’ Up! product that will be retiring on 3 June 2019 and has been one of my favourites for quick birthdays… The Happy Birthday die does all the hard work for us and will always remain handy for that last minute card. For this version I used a […]

Hello and thanks for popping by. Lots of people seem to have a bit of trouble when it comes to creating cards for the males in our lives. Jill from Paper Daisy Crafting set us a challenge in the Stampin’ For All Facebook group so that we could share our ideas for masculine cards. I […]

YAY! It’s #simplestamping Sunday

Hello and happy Sunday to you all. I mentioned the other day that my supply of birthday cards was running low so I’d made some to top it up. The ones I made were rather flowery so I thought I’d better try to come up with something a little less girly too! I picked the […]
