Bird zig-zag card on floral background

I enjoyed creating the panels for this card and playing around with my paper pack with the delicately glittered birds. I spent a air amount of time fussy cutting the birds only to decide to keep some sides with just the floral paper. (don’t worry i put these pieces to good use on another card…

Experimenting with zig-zag card making with a cat card

The photos I again really struggled with but hopefully they show the card well enough. I recently got scorable adorable matt from Hunkydory and loved creating a few interesting card designs. This is the first of two zig-zag cards made with a pale blue card but note I made two cards with one A4 piece…

Another few Christmas cards made using red and gold

Why fight with tradition? Red just begs to be placed with gold especially when it’s Christmas cards. I recently made a red circle card but on the same day I also made these two Festive cards. I love my new sentiment die and deicded to team it up with an old festive stamp using gold…

Blue patchwork card using flower embelishments and faux stitching

So this card was made at the same time as my pink butterflycard. It was another base deisgn that was awaiting inspiration to strike. I used two tones of blue for the faux stitching and really enjoyed adding the detail with lots of simple dashes. Sticking down the blue fabric embelishments was super easy and…

I have seen other people’s slider cards and looked forward to creating my own. I loved helping this bird die cut take flight with such an easy to make interactive card. I knew I wanted to use the bird and a sloped slot for the movement but it took me some thinking as to what…

Pink butterflies on a patchwork background

I have had the patchwork card for a while just waiting to be embelished and I finally got inspired to finish off the project. I love doing faux stitching and found my pink felt tip pen to create a subtle stitched border around the edges of the patches of patterned paper. I love the subtle…

Golden butterflies friendship card

I used some good quality card stock with a subtle pattern to create a folded tall card. I wanted to have the butterflies off the page so I made the fold to allow the inner card to be seen slightly. I used just a few paper flowers and die cut butterflies from my stash, seriosly…

Pink and purple flowers created using two different techniques

I have been challnging myself to create my own background papers with stamps and I just love the slightly metalic shimmer to the purple ink on these delicate flowers The shimmer of the purple ink doesnt show well in the photos. I used the same ink for the sentiment, it felt a shame to cover…

Loving watercolouring: blue and yellow flower cards

I love to play with my watercolour paints. I knew I wanted a bright card and my first attempt used reds blue and yellow but i felt it was too busy. I then used just the yellow and blue liking the very basic shaped flowers with little attempt to control where the paint went. It…

Fussy cut festive card

I just love the big golden bow on this card and plan to make another Christmas card using this as a sketch. It took alot of time to carefully cut the trees but I wanted them to have the proper prickely texture. I used a small snippet of the ribbon to create the bannerat thetop…

Creating paper flowers for spring themed budget card makes

I have been watching Creat and Craft TV a lot for inspiration lately and I came across a few inspiring paper flower demonstrations. Having only recently bought a great amount this month I knew I couldn’t afford to buy their set but wondered if I couldn’t achieve something with my papers cut using my circle…
