Making a fun flowers card with Stylish Shapes dies

Hello! Today’s card was inspired by a button picture I made many years ago. I can’t find a photo of it but essentially I layered up brightly coloured buttons to look like flowers and used green yarn for their stems. So I’ve done something similar for this long slimline card using the 2022-2024 In Colors […]

Slimline Birthday Card with coloured Shimmery Embossing Paste

Hello, I hope you are well. I am a late convert to the Shimmery White Embossing Paste and until I made this card I hadn’t coloured it, but wow I LOVE the effect you get… I added a couple of little drops from my Highland Heather reinker to approximately a teaspoon of the embossing paste […]

Saying goodbye to Hippo & Friends

Hello, I hope you are well. I don’t normally fall in love with cute critter stamp sets but Hippo Happiness really has been an exception to my usual rule. The hippo and the unicorn are my favourites but the lamb and butterfly are sweet and have been used a time or two as well. I […]
