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

Golden anniversary card using emboss resist technique

So, yet another disclaimer - I made these cards and filmed the making of the cards back in September of 2017, but I didn't want to blog about them until I had the corresponding YouTube video created as well. Dear me, this video has taken FOREVER to edit!! When I put all the clips together… Continue reading Golden anniversary card using emboss resist technique

Hey Foxy birthday card

Disclaimer: I made this card in November 2017, but this is the first chance I've had to blog about it. I made this card for a friend who was writing her Thesis at the same time as me - our friendship has been forged in the fire of PhD hell, so we've seen each other… Continue reading Hey Foxy birthday card

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. I was really pushed for time because I was spending almost all of my time writing my Thesis, so this was a really quick make. I used my embossing buddy… Continue reading Step sister’s black and gold birthday card

Mum’s birthday card

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!!!

Step sister’s birthday card

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm having a little break from all of my ocean/beach themed cards today as it's my step sister's birthday! She's a classy bird, so I wanted to make a black and gold card for her, because I think black and gold is classy. I also needed it to be quick as I'm… Continue reading Step sister’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
