Christmas card


My second post for today. This is my third Christmas card of the year, my stash is growing slowly.
I used a circle mask and Wendy Vecchi cornflower blue archival ink. The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp and I then drew the frame with copic pen.

Still making cards for Cat Protection shop in Cambridge, this is the latest. The background stamp, word  and the train are all Third Coast stamps. I used a Crafter's Companion embossing folder and applied pebeo gilding wax on the dark brown card.

Orange card


Treated myself to a craft magazine yesterday which had a set of Sheena Douglas stamps. They were crying out to be played with when I got home.  The background was made with liquid watercolours and the image stamped with Versafine ink. It's a really simple card but I really like it. Hope you have a great day.

Pastel colours


Hope you are having a good week. I found this Sarah Kay stamp I had for years and decided it needed to be used. I used my new Sue Wilson dies, Spellbinders and Memory Box dies. The image was coloured with watercolours and the background floral stamp is one I had for many years.

Spring card



It sure feels like Spring today. I just love these Penny Black images with these cute cats.  The image 
was stamped onto textured card and embossed. It was coloured with watercolours, my go to colouring medium.  Used a Dienamic die to cut out the main image and a Sue Wilson die for the bow.

Basket of flowers card


Hope you are having lovely sunshine today. Wanted to share this card I made for my local craft shop. I used the new Crafter's Companion embossing folder for the background and the basket. The basket die is a Sizzix original die I had for many years and thought it was perfect for this card. The green background was made with glimmer mist, applied with a brush onto white card and then embossed. The edges were then inked with brown dye ink. The tag shape is the waste from the basket. 
Have a great day.

Easter card


Hope you are having a good Lent. I am doing the Do Lent generously: 40 Acts. It has been really wonderful to do something positive for Lent to get me closer to God and people. 
This is an Easter card I made as a request. The main image was stamped and embossed twice and the flowers and banner cut out and decoupaged. The image was coloured with watercolours. I used one of my new embossing folder for grey strip and added gilding wax to it.
