Stamp Ink Paper 147 – colour it

The theme for Stamp Ink Paper 147 is colour it: I decided to give the Lawn Fawn a rest and used an Avery Elle stamp and die set instead: I went a little crazy with the colours, but it was meant to be a cheery card after all! Thanks for stopping by!

Color Throwdown 489

The colours for Color Throwdown 489 are red, green and white: Kinda summery, or even Christmas-y. Continuing my clean and simple streak, this is what I made: I used the versatile Neat & Tangled Medallion Flower Builder stamp set. I want to play with that one some more one day. That wraps up my challenge…

dragonflies and flowers

I have discovered that I love stenciling backgrounds. If I had more time I think I might do it for the majority of my cards! Here is a birthday card I made recently to get you in the spring mood. It features a nice stenciled background and some winged friends: I got the stencil years…

sympathy cards (set)

Sympathy cards. One of the hardest types of cards to make. They have to be both specific and general. They have to be serious, but not morbid. Heartfelt (non-generic) sentiments are difficult (you can’t make puns or other types of jokes or word play). Themes can be tricky because though someone may have loved trains…

bunch o cards

A family member requested ten general-purpose greeting cards. I was a bit pressed for time so they are on the simple side of things, but sometimes basic is alright. My favourite I think is this cactus one. Sure they are probably soon on their way out trend-wise but they are still cute. I took out…

new baby card trio

I made a few cards to congratulate new parents. They turned out kinda cute so I wanted to share them with you. I didn’t realise how crooked this was… Cute and simple, like a baby 😀 The pink and blue ones are still available here. Thanks for stopping by!

Mother’s Day 2017 card round up

Hello! Long time no see! Now that my “real” job has started to quiet down I am trying to catch up with my crafting related things. Here are most of the Mother’s Day cards I made (that haven’t already been posted for challenges): Here they all are in a slideshow: I upped the embellishments big…

Freshly Made Sketches #284

Hello 🙂 I almost went with Karren’s hearts in the layout for Freshly Made Sketches #284: …but I had these burlap flowers and decided to go with them instead. I went with neutral colours. I felt the patterned paper was a great match for the flower embellishments. It could work for a just thank you…

Stamp Ink Paper #95 – sketch

Check out this offset sketch for Stamp Ink Paper #95: Here is my take on the sketch: It’s a pink and feminine Mother’s Day card embellished more than my cards usually are. I am trying to make sure I use what I have (so I can buy some new stuff!). I’ve got two different pink…

Stamp Ink Paper #93

It’s all about flowers for Stamp Ink Paper #93: I needed to make some Mother’s Day cards so I knocked one out for this challenge: Not much to say here 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! (this card is available here)

S.I.P. #87 – kindness

Kindness is the theme for Stamp Ink Paper #87! This is what I rustled up: I embossed the patterned paper to add some texture and to enhance the petals of the flowers. I layered with dark grey, giving the card a more elegant feeling (instead of working off the red or yellow for a brighter…

SIP 49 – burlap flowers

It’s a floral challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week: In my ongoing effort to go through older supplies, I took out the last of my burlap flower stickers. I used spray ink to colour them. The back panel is dry embossed and had punched corners and inked edges. The sentiment (Art-C) is stamped….
