Happy Camper!

Today is Lynn ‘The Campervan Queen’s’ birthday, and although this card doesn’t have a campervan on it, it does have a pretty retro caravan which I am sure she will love equally. The images are from Handmade Harbour, and I thought that the little bunting…

Queen Bee

I fell in love with the inspiration photo at Fusion Card Challenge as soon as I saw it. Black, white and yellow make such a striking and cheerful combination, I couldn’t wait to get creative. I knew that I wanted to use my pretty Echo…

Birthday Picnic

This card was inspired by the photograph on Jill’s Craft Challenge.   I wanted to recreate the woven texture in the photo, so I cut strips of stripy paper and wove them diagonally to create my background. I then cut a frame from brown leather-feel…

What a Hoot!

Sweet Stampin’s current challenge is ‘Your Favourite Style’. I’m gradually changing my style from using lots of embellishments (flowers, ribbons, etc) to a more streamlined clean and simple look. I love stamping though, especially cutesy images – and I think that this card reflects where…

Nostalgia Stamp Easel Card

I love the sketchy feel of this stamp based on John Byars’ illustrations, and as I haven’t used it for a while I decided to make a feature of it for this easel card. Continuing with my ‘use it or lose it’ philosophy for 2014,…

One of my favourite colour combinations is brown and blue-green, so I jumped at the chance to enter this new challenge at ‘Just Us Girls’: I have been experimenting with clean, unfussy layouts for my cards since Christmas, and I like the slightly retro feel…

A Day Full of Happiness

All of Magnolia Stamps’ Tilda images are beautiful, and this sweet fairy Tilda is no exception: I have coloured the image with Prismacolour pencils and added some Stickles to her wings and dress for a pretty sparkle. I used a Memory box floral wreath die-cut…

Paper-Pieced Patchwork Elephant

Sorry to disappoint any of you who were expecting an elephant quilt here, this is another card project! However, it is a very sweet card, perfect for welcoming a new baby into this world. I have combined the themes of Jellypark’s ‘New Beginnings’ challenge and…

Blue Monday

Monday is usually a trying day, but I’m not feeling blue about it…..however my card for today is blue. I’ve combined two challenge themes for this project: Handmade Harbour’s ‘Pink or Blue’ theme, and Sweet Stampin’ s ‘Girly But No Pink’ theme. The result, of…

Peek-A-Boo Bebunni In A Box

Crafters’ Companion have gone all romantic this month with their Challenge theme of ‘Hearts’. I spotted this great (but easy) tutorial for a pop up box card on Split Coast Stampers and decided to use it for my entry. The box is made from purple…
