Serene scene!


Hi everyone.

I am back today with my card for a couple of challenges that are about to close soon.I printed the image on photo paper and trimmed it down. The blue layer has been embossed twice with a border die.

I have added 3 blue rhinestones and a peeloff which I coloured to match. My card base is white

Full 0f Happy!


Hello and welcome

Today's card features some bright rainbow colours on Yupo paper. It was in my background box, and I can't remember exactly how I did it. I trimmed it to layer onto a black card base and stamped my crazy bird onto a scrap and coloured him to match. I also stamped the message on a scrap with 'Shades dye ink' in orange, and outlined the 'happy' with a black pen

Under the sea


Welcome back to my blog
Today's card started off with a 'painty' background that I did not like, so I swiped over it with a small DI ink pad 'faded jeans' and then splashed some water on.
My stamp is from  Kaisercraft called  Coastal Escape, and I lightly coloured some of the seaweed. I diecut the sea horse with my cuttlebug from a scrap and coloured with copics, then used the seahorse stamp from the set to stamp some detail. The two little starfish and the rock were diecut as well. It is adhered to a black base card

Nautical Napkin


I am sharing a male card today using the napkin technique which I was reminded about recently.

I applied it to a card slightly smaller than my base card and sponged the edges with Faded Jeans DI

I then added a knotted piece of string and the birthday peeloff

Best wishes


Hi everyone

I have just returned from Radiology where I had an ultrasound on my thyroid. They found a couple of 'lumps', so now will await another Doctor's appointment. It seems to have been a never-ending round of specialist appointments  in the last six months!

Back to my card.

 I adhered a piece of DP to my black card base and then added the 3 green strips which I coloured by swiping with my Memento 'bamboo leaves' ink pad. I then added a double layer flower from my embellishments box, and the peeloff which I had coloured black.

Birthday Wishes


Today's card is made from a piece of DP (Colorbok) cut out with A Stamplorations die and layered onto the base which has had the edges sponged with 'Shades' dye ink in Orange

I stamped the flowers onto orange Bazill card and fussy cut them, and the 2 big leaves onto a green scrap of Bazill. The other green leaves are diecut. I then added the white and black dots and stamped the sentiment with Brilliance Graphite black
