Very Versailles Double Heat Embossed card

Hello. I had so much fun with yesterday’s emboss resist card that I couldn’t stop heat embossing. No matter how often I use this technique I still marvel at the way the embossing powder melts and transforms into a lovely shiny image right in front of your eyes. Today’s card is monochrome and I’ve used […]

Always thinking of you

Hello. I enjoyed yesterday’s card for a sketch challenge so much that I decided to make another one. This time I’ve followed the layout set by Ian Potter in the Stampin’ For All Facebook group… I decided to use Pretty Peacock and Blackberry Bliss colours and the gorgeous Perennial Essence designer series paper and this […]

Thinking of You for a sketch challenge

Hello and thanks for joining me. This week the lovely Patricia Smith has given us this sketch to use for the challenge in her ‘Crafty Stamping Club – Smiths Crafty Creations’ Facebook group… As I hadn’t used the lovely Rooted In Nature stamp set for a while I chose it for the main sentiment. I […]

Anyhow, lack of time […]

She regularly crafts with a group of ladies and teaches lots of techniques and shares her ideas with these lucky ladies.  This was my first time joining in, but won’t be my last! […]

Thinking of you card featuring Stampin’ Up! Serene Garden

Today’s project is a card made with the Serene Garden stamp set and Garden Scene framelits dies… If you buy the stamps and dies together as a bundle you save 10% on the cost of buying them separately. I used this set for my most recent blog hop but simply heat embossed the main corner […]

Thinking of You!

I think Soft Sea Foam is one of my new favourite colours!  This was just introduced into the 2018/2019 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue when it launched in June 2018.  There are so many lovely new colours to choose from and Soft Sea Foam is one of the Subtles family. I’ve used Soft Sea Foam card […]
