Love is all a-Round….

This striking card features a pretty ‘love’ stamp and some die cut circles and flourish. The doodle dotty background is layered onto black card to add definition to the edge. I cut circles in red, white, and black card, layering them before arranging them across…

Bon Voyage!

This card was made for a couple who are off to India (lucky chaps!) The retro travel backing paper is by October Afternoon, and has been layered onto black and mustard coloured card. I had some vintage travel stickers, but as there wasn’t one featuring…

Room With A View

Well, maybe not a room, but definitely a window with a view.This elegant card has a Marianne die cut window ‘looking out’ onto a pretty Wild Rose Studio stamp. I layered the window onto some matching cream card, a floral print and some raspberry card.…

Easter Eggs…..not the edible kind!

Another card made with my lovely glittery Doodlebug Designs stickers. This simple yet striking card has three ‘apertures’ cut in the front, with a yummy egg inside each one. The apertures have a silver lining which sets off the eggs beautifully. I love the pretty pastel…

Button Flowers

I’m glad to be using lots of pretty spring pastels after what seemed like months of festive brights. This card is light and cheery and features some twinkly glittered Doodlebug Designs flowers. I embossed the card front with a Crafter’s Companion ‘Happy Birthday’ embossing folder.…

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,…
