Just for you


The background for the card was cut from the packaging that came with some prima flowers, matted on to a kraft card blank. The decoupaged flowers were from Poundland and the 'just for you' sentiment circle from Craftwork cards.

Another special day


I rescued the spotted background from a card I received that also had the lovely black and white border - the black is flocked - lovely to feel and a thin piece of ribbon down the side. I added the hearts that had felt on them and the lovely littlespotted birds with the googlie eyes and the spindly wire legs.

Photo taken at strange angle to avoid flash glare on the shiny background.

Garden gate


A simple card using a shaped blank with distressed edges. The image is one that I stamped and coloured a long time ago and never used. It's a La Pasche foam stamp that was coloure with distress inks. This is then framed with a frame that was part of a Kanban kit long ago.

Inspired by the gate on the photo for Creative creations 19: down at the bottom of the garden:

The cheerful stamp pad challenge 69 week 2


This is my design team card for week 2 of The cheerful stamp pad 69: I love your hat. Once again, I've used the 1935 hat digi stamp kindly supplied by Rick Stdennis, our sponsor, coloured with spectrum noirs, die cut and edged with a purple spectrum. I used a ready decorated shaped card blank on to which I put a horizontal strip of a print that was made with my gelli plate, a stencil and acrylic paint.  Ribbon, flowers and lace/ribbon from stash. Your can enter the challenge here.
