Tropical Chic emboss resist card

Hello and thanks for joining me. I mentioned my ‘give it a go’ list a short while ago and now I’ve ticked another box on it, the emboss resist technique. I combined this technique with a stamp set I’ve not used for a little while; Tropical Chic… I made my normal card base with Very […]

Exploding treat box

Hello. After showing you the ‘exploding’ card I made yesterday I thought I’d also make an ‘exploding’ box. I hadn’t made any little boxes for Fererro Rocher chocolates recently so I combined the 2 ideas… I decided not to add any decoration to the lid but once you lift it off this is what is […]

3 Layer stamping

Hello and thanks for joining me. I am rather forgetful, it’s not my age, I’ve always been this way, lol. To help me out I have many lists. One of them is my ‘give it a go list’ and this card ticks off the ‘3 layer stamping’ written on this list… Over the years I’ve […]

Thanks for being a Friend-a-saurus

Hello and thanks for joining me. The Dinoroar Suite is just so cute and I hope that my card is doing it some justice… I made a card base from Whisper White thick card measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm. I added a piece of Pool […]

Reinforced book style box

Hello and thanks for joining me. I didn’t know what to call this type of box but it reminds me of a hardback book where the pages inside are slightly smaller than the cover. The cover of my box is bigger than the actual box part inside… I made this one in Night of Navy […]

Woven Threads milk carton box

Hello and thanks for joining me. I love making milk carton style boxes. They are so easy to make and just as easy to resize if you want to. I’ve made this size so many times than I could count but I still love to try it out with new colours and papers so here’s […]

Here’s […]

Hello and thanks for joining me. Today I have 3 cards made with the 1 stamp and all coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I made one but couldn’t stop there so here’s all 3 I’ve made, so far… Isn’t that little bee so cute? For each card the image was stamped with Memento ink and the […]

Nice and neutral thank you card

Hello. Today’s card features an old favourite stamp set, Flourishing Phases and the coordinating Flourish dies… We sometimes get a bit distracted by the new stuff in the catalogue and forget about sets like this that have been around a little while. Or is that just me? Lol I started with a card base of […]

Votive candle Thanks box

Hello. Today I have a little box that’s just big enough to hold a Yankee votive candle… I used Mint Macaron card for my base that measures 8 & 1/2 inches by 6 & 1/2 inches. On the long side score at 2, 4, 6 and 8 inches. On the short side score at 2, […]
