Valentine’s Day 2019

Hello! Long time no blog! I haven’t been in a crafty mood since November and I wasn’t even going to make Valentine’s Day cards this year, but I happened to get inspired one free afternoon… This year was big on puns 😀 The cards were a hit and I like the way they turned out….

wedding cards summer 2017

Marriage! People do it, and they often appreciate cards to acknowledge the occasion. Here are some such cards: I love those vellum hearts. I would probably put it on everything I make. (The above card is available here). This one was made to match the colours of the invitation, light yellow and a wine colour….

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…

The colours for Color Throwdown #436 are: …light yellow, green and blue! Here is what I made with that combination: Kinda cute and springy 🙂 stamps: Jillibean Soup Thanks for stopping by! (this card is available here)

belated Valentine’s Day 2017

Hello! I just wanted to do a post about the Valentine’s Day cards I made this year. I forgot earlier in the month I had a lot of stuff left over from last year so I tried to use more embellishments than I usually do. These are my favourites:

S.I.P. 81 – black, white and…

Hey there! The colour challenge at Stamp Ink Paper this week is black, white and a bit of colour: As February is coming up and I have been seeing so many fantastic black, white and red Valentine’s Day cards, I chose red as my additional colour. I have been drawn to cards with embossed layers…

CYCI 143 – sketch challenge

I am keeping up with my “back to challenges” streak with the three week-long challenge at Can You Case It? I have been meaning to start my Valentine’s Day cards and thought this sketch might get me in the mood. It certainly did, but my cold says that one card is enough for now 😀…

Sweet Memories greeting card

This card was born from a desire to use up some materials I had been hanging on to for way too long. If I use them up I get to buy new stuff, right!? It was made as part of my family-themed collection but it could be given as a birthday or a just because…

love greeting cards 2016 – last batch!

These are the last ones I had to make this year. The more I make, the more experience I get and the more knowledge I gain to make a card come together. Of course they are not going to be perfect, but if they were there would be nothing to strive for the next time!…

Stamp Ink Paper challenge #34 – love

Here is what I came up with for the Stamp Ink Paper challenge #34 (love theme). I loved using my new Valentine’s Day materials I got this year!  

love greeting cards 2016 – minis!

Here are some mini cards I did, gift tag size. I suppose they could go with a bottle of wine for a friend, or a hunk of metal and jewels for that special someone ? 😉 They were fun to make because although the small size was a bit limiting they felt so complete with…

love greeting cards 2016 – white edition

Here are a few more from this years batch: I was happy to work with the blues and greens, which I think are still romantic colours. It is a change from the pink and red, and might go over better with those who tend to shy away from those colours 🙂
