Pretty in Pink


Hi everyone

Yesterday's card was made with some pretty DP from GaleriaPapieru called Field Lilies

I diecut the edge and adhered it on the left. My triple layered butterflies were cut on my Cameo and I sponged the edges before attaching them. I added sparkly gems for the bodies and a Happy Birthday peeloff

Hi all

Today's card features a gorgeous vintage car stamp (unknown)

I stamped it onto a wonky stitched oblong and made my background with a woodgrain embossing folder, which I swiped with a brown ink to show up the grain a little better.The piece of orange ribbon was a gift with a stamp I ordered from Australia and it gives a lift to the colours. The base card is brown too, and I see I have managed to cut the bottom off in the scan. I am still getting used to my new printer!!

Turquoise birthday

Day 7 of lockdown and at least another 7 to go!

I have been trying to make one card per day and this is yesterdays, but had to wait for some sunshine this morning to get a photo. I was trying to show the WOS sparkle on the butterfly and the fine glitter showing through on the background, but it did not happen. I wish I knew the secret of capturing sparkle!

The background was a piece of watercolour card that already had a glimmery wash on it. I added turquoise Brusho and spritzed with water. After it was dry I added in some random circles with a blue Promarker, then diecut out the part circle. Birthday was stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black and I die cut the 'happy' twice from some leftover scraps The butterfly was recycled from another project, and I added WOS to the wings

Back again today with another card

I found this piece of heavyweight vellum amongst my papers and thought it would be perfect to use for the 'Lets Squash It' challenge

I ran it through my cuttlebug, using a folder from Provo Craft - one of the first ones I bought

I have coloured the raised parts with Copics and Promarkers

Happiness always


Welcome back

We are in the middle of a level 4 lockdown again so I am enjoying the time making cards

For this one, I have used a simple fun fold from Natasha Foote Here is the link to her instructions on her You Tube channel

I used some dp from a 6x6 pad "Out of Print' by Basic Grey. I have had this pad a number of years, and don't think it is available now. I cut it to the same size as my card front, trimmed off  a quarter and attached it to the inside right, and the rest is attached to the left

I diecut the shape,  edged it in orange, stamped the sentiment using my misti, and attached it to the folded back piece. The flower leaf and button were added for further interest

Merry Christmas


I am back for a second post today

I have followed the sketch from BYSHC to make my mini slimline card.

I have used DP from a 6x6 pad by MME and printed a digi that I had in my files. Sorry I do not know who the designer is. It is cut with a stitched circle die, and I also made a tag for the sentiment, which is a peeloff coloured red

Take Time



I have tried 3 times to scan this card, and each time it does not show the border correctly!

I can assure you it is even on all four sides

I have used the stamps from my Jofy 09 set from Paper Artsy, and coloured with copics and promarkers

I drew around the edges of my base card, and then layered my flowers on top

with love


Welcome, and sorry I have not been posting for a wee while!

Today's card uses a beautiful pre-printed ephemera from Stamplorations that I won recently.
I have tried to match the pinks but my scanner has changed the colours a little, I can assure it looks a closer match IRL!
I used this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday as my starting point
The pink background is embossed
A scrap of bazzil card for the offset
A scrap of white card for the diagonal stripe
3 pink sequins 
a tiny butterfly bead
white faux stitching using my Sharpie paint pen


edited to add that the Dare to be artsy linky appears to be full atm so will try again later
