Birthday Girl


I made today's card for my dil's birthday
I cut a square of patterned paper slightly smaller than my card base, and then used a matching plain paper to die cut the zig zags and the TH flowers. The centres are brads.
The black happy day is made from wood, and a made the 'birth' piece from scraps and peel off stickers

Good morning all, I hope you are enjoying your day.

We will shortly be going to do our weekly grocery shop, so just time to do this post beforehand

This design is similar to one I saw recently

I stamped my flower (Paperbabe) onto a scrap with Shades Dye ink in purple majesty, coloured with  Promarker orchid and Copic Sketch amethyst, and the centre with Wink of Stella gold.After trimming down I edged both layers with gold pen and marked out a square onto the first layer. I also outlined with gold the message piece and used a peeloff for the message. I have hundreds of these to use so you will be seeing a lot of them!!

Blue Lily


Good afternoon all

I found some time today to have a play with some of the goodies I received from Mrs A for winning one of her competitions recently

I wet  lines through one of the pretty papers, so that I could pull off a strip to layer across my card.

I have coloured the flower with the Spectrum-Noir  'Starry Sky' Sparkle pen and dragged out the colour with water. I then used the Nuvo glitter Marker 'Imperial Blue" to highlight the edges.

The green leaves are painted with  Magic Colour 'grecian olive'

I have added a peel-off which I coloured blue to match

Best Wishes


Welcome back
I am quite disappointed with the result of this scan, it looks so much better IRL
I have used the same die again as in my last post, which was a freebie with a magazine, and loosely followed the directions from there .
I used a white card base, a diecut rectangle frame, and a piece of dp for my background. I also added a silver peeloff to finish

With Love


Hello again

To make the background for today's card, I first swiped Broken China and Peeled Paint distress inks onto an acrylic block and spritzed with water. Then pressed onto a piece of watercolour card. When it was dry, I trimmed it and layered it onto black card stock, and then onto my card base.

I used my Misti to stamp the words, and added the diecut flower panel and 3 red heart sequins. Unfortunately they show black in the scan!

With Love


Hi everyone
Seeing that it is Valentine month, I thought I would make this card with a cute pair of cats that I have had for too many years that I care to remember!

I used a heart stencil (unknown) on my background, and then stamped and embossed the 2 cats on a scrap of black card
They were then fussy cut and attached over the hearts, and a little gold paint added to the eyes
Finished off with a couple of peel-offs and then attached to my black base card
