Happy Birthday Gamer!

Men’s cards are always tricky to make, but this range of Kenny K toppers from Hobby House have something for everyone. I used some polka dot card from Anna Marie Designs for the background and layered this cool Cheery Lynn chain border die over it.…

From Paris With Love

For this card I have used a romantic Wild Rose Studio image and plenty of sparkle! I stamped the image with black Memento ink then coloured it with my Spectrum Noir pens: EB2, 6, 7, TN1, GB10, DR3, Blender I covered my card blank with…

Jigsaw Jigsaw

No, you’re not seeing double – this is a jigsaw of Jigsaw! The terribly twisted people at Haunted Design House have inspired me with their ‘Let’s Play A Game’ theme and I spent the evening creating my macabre offering for the challenge. I have to…

Pretty In Pink

One of my favourite colour combinations is pink and brown. It manages to stay pretty and feminine without becoming too sickly sweet! I can’t get enough of this polka dot card from Anna Marie Designs – it is so versatile and seems to go with…

Love Vintage!

Vintage shops have really come into their own over the last few years. Maybe we are all feeling a bit let down by current designs and fashion and feel the need to get back to those great eras of the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.…
