White on white embossing

I saw some cards this week using white on white embossing and I liked the effect very much, so I decided to have a go and add my own take to it. My first card was a get well card using Dandelion Wishes and Forever Fern. I also made a sympathy card using Forever Fern […]

Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #23

Welcome to our Blog Hop #23. This month we had a colour challenge using Pretty Peacock, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry. These colours shouted out for me to use Whale of a Time Suite. I made two different cards. In both I used the Seabed 3D Embossing folder and the same sheet of Whale of […]

Father’s Day Card

While Father’s Day has passed, I was holding off on posting this to use in this month’s Blog Hop – but then I forgot to sign up for this month’s challenge. So here it is as a stand alone post. I used the Beautiful World DSP and dies and Cinnamon Cider and Whisper White cardstock. […]

Pampered Pets

I bought the Pampered Pets Bundle from the 20/21 Catalogue but hadn’t been inspired to begin using it. I find sometimes using Pinterest as a springboard can be a good way to get the creative juices flowing. I CASED a few cards from Pinterest and then created one of my own for the July blog. […]

Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #19

Welcome to our Blog Hop #19. For this month the challenge was to create a card using these three colours. I have really, really struggled with this one!! My problem is that I personally don’t like Rich Razzleberry and Gorgeous Grape together, but the challenge is accepted! I decided to design my cards around the […]

10th Birthday card

I have come back to the ‘World of Good Suite‘ for another card. My grandson turns 10 on Sunday and he is fascinated by anything to do with the world and nature. I decided to leave dinos, dragons etc behind and make him a card that he could enjoy into the future! It is a […]

Parisian Blossoms Suite

I am sad to see the Parisian Blossoms Suite go at the end of May. However, some of the components will continue to be available as the Forever Blossoms stamp set and Cherry Blossoms dies are carrying over. I used the Parisian Blossoms DSP for the main part of the easel card. I had also […]
