Fiesta card using alcohol inks and stencil

I won't lie - I'm not sure about alcohol inks yet! I saw a video by Michelle Short of The Card Grotto using stencils with alcohol inks and I thought "Wow! That looks amazing! I want to give it a try!" so I gave it a try and I think maybe, I should leave this… Continue reading Fiesta card using alcohol inks and stencil

Birthday thank you cards with SSS flora stamp

It was my birthday last week, to be honest it was a bit overshadowed by passing my viva - it still doesn't feel real and I'm wandering about in a bit of a daze!

Step sister’s black and gold birthday card

Disclaimer: I made this card back in November for my oldest step sister, but this is the first chance I've had to blog about it.

So I was apparently in such a rush to get to my Mum's house at the weekend that I didn't take a photo of her birthday card, so the only photo I have of it was taken on my phone on her laminate flooring!!! I'm really sorry that the photo quality isn't great! I wanted… Continue reading Mum’s birthday card

Neon Shaker card

I have been working on this card for AGES, so I'm glad it's finally finished! I was going to share it for MFT Camp Create Spectacular Shakers, but with one thing and another I didn't get it in for the deadline and then it went right to the bottom of my priority list! I'll share… Continue reading Neon Shaker card
