Plaid Daddy

Mixing and matching is a big part of the fun when crafting. Grabbing different colours, stamp sets, dies etc and bringing them together to create final project. This particular project is a great example of that - where originally I wanted to make a plaid top to sit on a box lid, but then somehow… Continue reading Plaid Daddy

Happy Suited Birthday!

I mentioned on a post a couple of weeks ago that I struggle when making masculine cards. Which is still the case and even with a gorgeous suite such as 'Well Suited', I still find it takes me some time to bring a project together. However, this card came to me quite quickly and was… Continue reading Happy Suited Birthday!

Coming Home to You

I love trying out new techniques and whilst I have done sponging before, I've never paired it up with masking at the same time. So I thought I would give it a shot! The moon on this card was masked prior to sponging the gorgeous shades of blue background, to give the effect of a… Continue reading Coming Home to You

Penguin Birthday

My son turned 11 last month - he's absolutely penguin mad, so his card every year is always penguin related in some way. The launch of the new Autumn / Winter was perfect timing for me to make his card this year, especially with the inclusion of the Freezin' Friends Bundle. The gorgeous penguin from… Continue reading Penguin Birthday

Monochrome Love

Do you often find that making a masculine card is more difficult than making one for a female recipient? I know I do. I try to set myself a challenge that 1 in every 10 cards must be purposely masculine - this way I've always got a masculine card for when I need it. I… Continue reading Monochrome Love

Polar Hue

How cute is this gorgeous Polar Bear? Another animal that I get to colour in with my blends - which makes me happy! He looks so happy skating along there.. To make this card, I chose the Designer Series Paper (DSP) to go with the stamp set & my colours went from there. The DSP… Continue reading Polar Hue

Glimmer Snowflakes

How pretty is this card? I can't take the credit at all, I only glued the bits down - but the star of the show has to be the Balmy Blue Glimmer paper, its so glittery and a lovely colour. I had to make it the star of the show, so didn't want to do… Continue reading Glimmer Snowflakes

Triangular Shades of Purple

Happy Hump Day to you all! I hope you are all keeping safe and well? Today, I wanted to showcase some dies recently introduced in the Annual Catalogue. I love basic shapes - squares, circles, rectangles - and we have a lot of these available as dies with stitched effect too. However, we didn't have… Continue reading Triangular Shades of Purple
