Mint Friend

I do love making cards using just two colours - they're so simple and use very little supplies! Today's card was made using a stamp that's not often used from the Beauty Abound's stamp set, the bubble style motif is often overlooked in favour of the flowers or butterflies. I think the same can be… Continue reading Mint Friend

Butterfly Thanks

Good Morning - how are you all? Can you believe that it is already the end of June? Me neither! It's incredible just how quickly 2020 is disappearing! During lockdown, I found myself at a loose end and turned to crafting more to pass the time - I found colouring in therapeutic, so made a… Continue reading Butterfly Thanks

Unicorn Magic

So, I have a confession to make! I wasn't the person who designed and made this card - it was my daughter, Mia. She is a fan of unicorns and absolutely loved the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP) when it arrived in my new catalogue order. The Hippo Happiness Stamp Set is her absolute… Continue reading Unicorn Magic

A very simple card on the blog today, one to make if you're running out of time or perhaps want to mass produce them for family / friends. This card takes just 3 supplies plus ink and adhesive. Amazingly quick to make and can be reproduced in a number of colour ways! I chose to… Continue reading Merry Merlot Christmas

Boyish Birthday

Do you find that you struggle to make male orientated cards or projects. Those where a flowery Designer Series Paper (DSP) just won't suit the recipient. As a mum of three children, two of those being boys, I sometimes find myself struggling for a theme to make a card for them. Now they're no longer… Continue reading Boyish Birthday

Thankful Cabana Thoughts

Coastal Cabana is a colour that made its return during the colour refresh back in June. It's a beautiful blue, when you don't quite want to be as bright as Bermuda Bay and co-ordinates with the gorgeous Team Room Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP). The Team Room DSP is thinner than other suites, making it… Continue reading Thankful Cabana Thoughts

Many Merry Thanks

How gorgeous is the deer on this card? I couldn't wait to use it when I first opened the stamp set but wasn't sure what to do with it. Doing my usual browsing of Pinterest and other craft forums, I came across a card from a fellow demo Karen McClure using the Dashing Along Designer… Continue reading Many Merry Thanks

Mango Floral Card

As the weather starts to get a little colder, thoughts go back to the warmer summery days that we were blessed to have for such a long period this year. To help keep that summer feeling alive, I set myself a challenge - Summer on a card. Summer means bright weather and so of course,… Continue reading Mango Floral Card
