Birthday card using Pantone color of 2019 – Living Coral

This week I made another card 'to sell' to my Mum because she asked for feminine birthday cards as well. My crafty mojo is rock bottom at the moment - unfortunately my Seasonal Affective Disorder is really bad at the moment, so I'm constantly tired and I just don't have any energy. I wake up,… Continue reading Birthday card using Pantone color of 2019 – Living Coral

Masculine Birthday card

My Mum talked to me over the holidays and told me that she had to buy some cards for upcoming birthdays and that when she got to the till the cost was extortionate - if I make cards, why don't I sell them? Well, to be honest I'd been thinking about it for a while… Continue reading Masculine Birthday card

Mum’s birthday card using Prima princess stamp

It was my Mum's birthday on Tuesday, but this week has been demanding at work so I'm only able to blog about it now! This card is completely inspired by THESE CARDS that Amy Rsavy created at the beginning of the month, so not my original idea at all. So I don't have the Picket… Continue reading Mum’s birthday card using Prima princess stamp

Pinata card using MFT dies

I see a theme emerging! Last week I made cards using the MFT fiesta word die, this week I've made some pinata cards! I feel like I should call this post "When Nuvo drops don't behave!". Initially, I created a card using the pinata dies and the largest 'In and Out Stitched Oval STAX' die… Continue reading Pinata card using MFT dies

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
