Hello there, since the water coloured look is so popular right now I wanted to have another go with it and make a 'pretty' card. I have made the background panel but first stamping and heart embossing a script stamp and then I have gone over the top with three TH Distress Inks - Evergreen Bough, Spun Sugar and Milled Lavender. I have then liberally sprayed it with water and left it to dry. I wanted a focal point for my card but I didn't want to cover up too much of the background.
I took the SSS Chrissy Butterfly and die cut it from vellum, I added this with a teeny bit of Matte medium to the background piece. I then die cut the SSS thanks die four times and layered them up, the final layer having a layer of WOS. I also added this with Matte Medium on top of the butterfly. I have then finished off with a few Doodlebug sequins. The panel has been added to a white card base with 3D foam.


Thank you so much for visiting me today, I may a bit quiet again this week, I have another essay due in on Sunday so need to finish that.

Easter Daffodil

When I saw THIS amazing card by the one and only Amy Wanford I was blown away by it. Not only is Aimes an amazing card maker but she has such an eye for design and see's things in a different way than most people do. She used the CBS Pretty Plus dies to make a 3D daffodil and so I stole borrowed the idea and did the same on an Easter card for my nan. I added the daffodil to the CBS Scalloped Tag die and stamped the sentiment from the CBS Fresh Flowers set below it.


Thanks you so much for visiting me today, I hope you all enjoy the rest of the Easter break.

Hoppy Easter!

Hello there and happy Easter to you! I am sharing a card I have made my brother, SIL, niece and nephew for Easter. First of all let me apologise for the poor photographs, I have only just managed to take a photo of it this morning and it is pouring down outside and so grey :( I love this cute Honey Bunny set from Mama Elephant though and I couldn't resist using the bunny teamed with some Clearly Besotted dies for this card.


Thanks you so much for visiting me today, I do have another Easter card to share which I will post tomorrow :) Wising you all a happy and blessed Easter.

Birthday Butterfly

Hello there, good afternoon. Sorry I am so late with my post today. Time has got away with me this morning! When I made THIS card I also made some pink butterflies using TH Picked Raspberry ink too. I love this colour, so beautiful. I think it looks nice against all the white in this card too.


Yesterday me and my craft room were featured over on the Cut Out + Keep blog. If you fancy hearing a little about my room and see some more photographs then please pop over and have a look! Anyway, thanks so much for visiting me today. Wishing you a very happy Easter weekend!  I will be back over the weekend with at least one Easter card (I am a little late in getting them finished this year!).
