Wishing you a purple birthday


Yes, it's another purple card, this time using a background shape printed with a faint snowflake background on to which I stuck the oval with the sentiment stamped with stazon vibrant violet. The flowers with button centres were from Poundland and the butterfly was among some crafting goodies given to me by a friend.

More purple


I do love crafting with purple - while the flowers were out from making a commissioned card a day or two ago I thought I'd make some more purple based cards. Once again this is a pre-coloured card blank with an oval aperture. I lined the inside of the card with a sentiment sheet. I tore ovals around perspex templates using pieces from my offcuts boxes, edging these with stazon vibrant violet. The middle oval was originally a piece of white card that has been dabbed with alcohol inks and lightened with blending solution. It was then stamped with the lovely Leonardo stamp by Stampington. The flowers are from stash and the centres are Prima.

Happy purple Christmas


I really am in purple mode atm! This card has a faded snowflake background on to which I've stamped the Clarity stamps 'we three kings' stamp inked with memento grape jelly. I also inked up some of my favourite snowflake stamps from the inkadinkado 'doodle frames holiday' set and stamped randomly on to the shaped background which was then mounted on to a purple stardream card blank.
