Orange flowers


Good morning all

Today's card follows the sketch from MFT #591

I have used a piece of left over designer paper for the lower portion and die cut it with a stitched edge die (unknown brand)

The flower is one of the first stamps that I bought, and it is still one of my favourites. I stamped it onto a scrap of orange card with Brilliance graphite black. I outlined the edge with an orange marker and yellow WOS The birthday sentiment is from Woodware and I finished off by adding some black sequins to the centre of the flower

Joy, Faith, Love, and Peace


Hello all

 I am back again with a card I have made for the BYSHC Spring into Christmas Linky party

I have used the sketch from BYSHC challenge #21.
The designer papers are from Stampin Up and the stamp is from Stamp-It (Australia)
I used Memento teal zeal and also outlined the layers with Promarker verdigris, which matched perfectly
I would also like to enter this into the Rudolph Days challenge which runs until the end of April

 Hi crafters, It's been a while since I posted, I hope you are all well

Today's card has a piece of yellow card which I ran through my cuttlebug with a folder from Provo Craft, it does not have a name. I swiped over it with dried marigold DI to high-lite the pattern.

My little robots are from a set by TPC Studio, which I stamped in black, cut around, and adhered.

Sail Away


Welcome, I hope you are all well

Something different for me today, and something I haven't done for a very long time, as I have arthritis, and find it difficult to prick the holes manually. I experimented using my Cameo Silhouette, to see whether I could scan the design and then cut it on the machine. I was pleased at the result, so you may see more stitched cards in the future. I mounted the panel on a dark blue card base, after sponging the edges with walnut stain DI. The words are stamped with a red Memento ink pad and clear embossed

Welcome back

A very CAS card from me today, I think it took me less than fifteen minutes to make, so quick and simple too!

I used distress oxides - faded jeans and wilted violet through a stencil across the corner.

Then stamped one of Tim Holtz's crazy dogs with memento ink and coloured with copics

going shopping!


Hi everyone and welcome
Today's card is suitable for a little girl's birthday, and I can add a greeting when I know who I will be giving it to.
I cut out the shape with my Cameo and sponged the edges,
 the flowers were punched from vellum and then embossed with a swiss dots EF. I used a blue pen to outline the edges and then added some blue punched circles for the flower centres.
A ribbon tied to the handle is the finishing touch.
Double D - something with a handle
