Christmas tags 2017

This is just a very quick post to share with you the AMAZING new dies I got from Leane Creatief 'Holly Leaves Pine Branches' and 'Pine cones 3D' that I've used to make my Christmas tags this year. I die cut the smaller of the two pine cones from brown card and inked through the… Continue reading Christmas tags 2017

Nadolig Llawen

I have a lot of Welsh friends and wanted to make Christmas cards using the Welsh sentiment dies I have from Tattered Lace. Unfortunately (as per usual) this card was WAY more intensive to create that I had anticipated and I've only been able to create one as opposed to several... I die cut the… Continue reading Nadolig Llawen

Umbrella card

My Step Mother lives in Hua Hin in Thailand, and so when I heard about the bombings on Friday I was fearful that she might have been injured or killed. Thankfully she was at home because the bombings were early in the morning so she wasn't out and about at the time. I wanted to… Continue reading Umbrella card

Granny’s Birthday card

Today is my Granny's 96th birthday, so I wanted to share the card I made for her with you this evening. I've been loving all the white with a splash of colour cards I've seen on Pinterest, so this is my take on the look.

Niece’s birthday card

I love Gorguss by Santoro because it reminds me of my youngest niece, so this year I made her a card using the 'The Runaway' stamp set by docrafts. The main image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Classic Crest card. I coloured it with my Specturm Noir pens. The horse's body:… Continue reading Niece’s birthday card

Step sister’s Birthday Card

I saw this card on the Heartfelt Creations site and I loved the colour scheme and how sparkly it was! I wanted to re-create it for my Mum's birthday card because she loves purples and greens, and then I realised that it's actually my step sister's birthday before my Mums! (Yes, I am very scatty!)… Continue reading Step sister’s Birthday Card

New Baby card

I'm so pleased that one of my former colleagues has been safely delivered a baby boy! He and his wife have been waiting for a baby for years, so this is such a wonderful moment for them. I love water lillies and I think they are a sign of new life, so I wanted to… Continue reading New Baby card

Masculine birthday card

Today is my oldest Step Sister's boyfriend's birthday. He loves history, so I know that 'vintage' stuff would suit him. I ran some black card through the Crafts-Too 'Geared' embossing folder. I stamped the image from the IndigoBlu 'Little Voice' stamp set onto Whisper White card stock and inked over it with Vintage Photo Distress… Continue reading Masculine birthday card

Granny’s Christmas Card

I'm sure I've mentioned it hundreds of times, but my Grandmother is 94 and lives alone, so I like to make her a card for Christmas because she doesn't get very many. Unfortunately her sight and hearing are both very bad, which adds to her isolation - she has a carer who comes in daily… Continue reading Granny’s Christmas Card
