Paper Craft


Today is a bit special - I'm participating in my second Team Tiny YouTube hop. The theme for this hop is inspiration. We have been paired with another participant from Team Tiny and we have checked out their YouTube, Instagram and blog to get to know them and to pick a card that we want… Continue reading #TeamTinyInspirationHop

Autumnal slimline card

I'm not thrilled about how this card turned out... I had the concept in my head of "autumnal, monochromatic with a hint of gold and textured", then it didn't work out quite right... I used my Creative Expressions 'Finishing Touches - Autumn Leaf Trio' dies to cut out whole leaves and the vein shapes from… Continue reading Autumnal slimline card

Rainbow cards for neighbours

I cut down some white card to the same size as my card bases to create a card front and used my Nuvo Glimmer Paste and Prima stencil to create the raindrops for the background. Whilst I was waiting for the raindrops to dry I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow from Neenah Classic… Continue reading Rainbow cards for neighbours

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

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! However, with birthdays come lots of lovely gifts and thank you cards (because everyone likes snail mail that isn't a bill,… Continue reading Birthday thank you cards with SSS flora stamp

SSS watercolour panel update

So I did decide what to do with the lovely SSS embossed watercoloured panel and made it into a 6x6 card with some X cut adhesive glitter sheets and the sentiment from My Favorite Things 'More Essential Sentiments' white heat embossed on a little strip of black card. To add some more texture I added… Continue reading SSS watercolour panel update

Playing with my stamp platform

Hi Everyone! I hope you're having a lovely weekend? As I posted previously this week (I've been posting a lot this week!) my Tim Holtz stamp platform arrived on Tuesday, but I wasn't able to enjoy it as I wasn't well and it was followed by two very long working days where I tend to… Continue reading Playing with my stamp platform

Mothering Sunday 2017

Happy Mothering Sunday to all the Mothers in the world! My Mum loves Boston Terriers, and if she wasn't caring for my aged Birman cat I think she would have a little pack of rescue Bostons. As Mothering Sunday is all about Mums I wanted to create a card that would make her smile, and… Continue reading Mothering Sunday 2017


St Valentine’s Day treat box

As a single person I don't really celebrate St. Valentine's day, but the Simon Says Stamp 'Hey Love' release is soooo adorable, who couldn't help but be inspired? First I used the Stampin'UP! box die to create a box base out of Neenah Desert Storm card. I used my Simon Says Stamp love background stamp… Continue reading St Valentine’s Day treat box


SSS haul! February 2017

Squeal!!! This was an uexpected surprise! I ordered some exciting stamps and dies from the Simon Says Stamp (SSS) 'Hey Love' release and misread one of the reservation dates - I thought it was 10th January, but actually it was 10th February!! SSS don't ship until everything in the order is ready, so I thought… Continue reading SSS haul! February 2017
