Many Thanks

Here is a card I made a few weeks ago for my mum. I followed the Retrosketches #15 sketch for it. I have first taken a sheet of white PTI SS CS and then cut a Nesabilities Label Five with PTI Wisteria Wonder CS and added it off the edge of the white. I have wrapped around with PTI Wisteria Wonder Twill Tape and and tied in a bow at the front. I have then taken another piece of the white CS and stamped the peonie from the PTI Pretty Peonies set with PTI Wisteria Wonder ink. I have stamped the sentiment from the Paper Smooches Word Salad set using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I have then cut this out with a Nestabilities Rectangle die and added with foam pads. Three rhinestones added to finish.


Thanks so much for visiting me today, I hope you all have a great weekend!

Hexagons - DTDF

Hi all, I am back with another hexagon related card! I am loving the hexagons at the moment. This card was made for my lovely friend Sarah who celebrated her birthday earlier this month. I have taken sheets from the MME Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing collection and cut them witht he MFT Die-Namics Hexagon die. I have run them though my Xyron and added them to the card base in the pattern shown. I have then stamped the greeting from the Personal Impressions - Paula Pascal Big Sentiments set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I have run the Memory Box Butterfly Dreams die through my Cuttlebug with a sheet of PTI Vellum CS and added these teeny butterflies to the hexagons with Tombow Mono Multi Glue. I have adorned each one with Bazzill Jewels and The Hobby House rhinestones.


Thanks so much for visiting me today, I really appreciate it.

World's Greatest

Sorry I am late in sharing it but here is the card I made for my dad for fathers day. I simply took a sheet of PTI SS White CS and stamped the ties from the PTI World's Greatest stamp set using Enchanted Eveing, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores and New Leaf PTI inks. I have then stamped the greeting from thye same set in black Versafine ink. I have added the layer to a PTI white card base with 3D adhesive sqaures. This card is inspired by one made by the amazing Maile Belles.


Thanks so much for visiting me today, hope you are all happy and healthy!

DTDF Challenge & LIM

Hi all, I am back with my card for the latest DTDF Challenge of Pink & Green. You have to make a card using the colours of pink and green and utilise a die in your card too. I made this card with the latest Less Is More challenge of 'Something Shiny' in mind too.

For my card I took some paper from the MME Miss Caroline Dolled Up Collection and die cut them using the MFT Die-Namics Hexagon die. I have taken a white 5x5" card base and cut 1" off the bottom. I have added the hexagons on the base with my Xyron machine. I have then stamped the sentiment from the MFT More Essentials Sentiments set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I have taken a CC Butterfly Cutter and cut this with PTI Vellum CS and added this to the base with two pink Bazzill Jewels. I have then added three Bazzill jewels in clear to finish.


Apologies for not getting my DTDF DT card in on time, as you will be able to tell from my previous post I wasn't well. Hope you can play along with the challenge, please see the blog for details on the challenge rules.

Sketch N Stash 89

Hi guys, first of all I am really sorry that this post is a week late. I was taken ill during the bank holiday weekend and ended up in hospital. Since I came out I got worse and ended back at my GPs. I have been signed off work for a week and still not feeling great but wanted to just come on here to add this card as it's so late.

This fortnight we have a great card designed by the lovely Sarah-Jane, here it is:

For my card I used PTI Aqua Mist CS and Pattern Paper for the background, a CC Designs Pixie Pet stamp {old neglected stash} for the image coloured with Copics and the message is a Waltzingmouse Stamps sentiment {new stash} stamped and then cut using a MFT Die-Namics Tab. **I will add proper details here when I am feeling better**


Thanks so much for visiting, sorry for the rush post. Please visit the Sketch N Stash blog for more details on the challenge. Hope you are all well and hope to be back soon!

Personalised Stamps

Hi all, I just wanted to take the time to tell you about some excellent customer service I received last week. I ordered two personalised stamps for the back of my cards from Stamping All Day and Nicky was so nice. Not only did she send me proofs before going ahead with the order she changed the sizes and fonts for me. So if you are looking for a new personalised stamp maybe head over there.

Just so you know Nicky didn't ask me to do this post but I think everyone is quick to say when they have had bad customer service that they forget the good ones :0)

Hope you all have a great extended weekend for those in the UK celebrating the Jubilee. If you are visiting from somewhere else then I hope you have  great weekend too! :0)
