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….

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!

Less Is More 369

The theme for Less Is More 369 is bring something back.   I took out a Darice embossing folder I had sitting in my stash for a long time and some Studio G stamps from Michaels that were pretty lonely. With all the new stuff I have picked up lately, it was interesting to rifle…

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…

holidays 2017 – more cards

These are some of my favourite cards I made for this holiday season: These ones feature spray-inked stripes for a background and wooden Scrabble-style tiles: This one is for Emma: Whipped spackle dots, snowflakes stamped in gesso and a brick embossing folder ftw!

Halloween cards 2017

Halloween is a time to celebrate for me and I love any excuse to make spooky crafts. Here are some cards I have made so far this year: This one was sent to Switzerland to a dA friend:     I love how the embossing looks on this recycled packing:      

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…

birthday cards for my sister

My sister is by no means a girly-girl so I love to make cards for her. I like to break out the pink and frills once in a while, but a card for her is a welcome challenge. Here is what I came up with: Here, I inked up a bunch of wooden embellishments to…

cupcake birthday card with icing

I picked up some Faber-Castell whipped spackle a while ago and kind of forgot about it. But one day I needed to make a birthday card and inspiration struck while contemplating a cupcake stamp. I like the numbered paper. I almost didn’t use it because some people don’t like to really bring attention to the…

CASology #249 – warm

CASology #249‘s cue card was particularly inspiring: Here is where I went with it: I used a punch for the circle in the middle (forgetting I had just bought circle dies… :D). Some extra sprays of yellow/orange spray ink made it darker and warmer, but maybe a bit too dark cause the sun stamp needed…

CAS(E) This Sketch #218

There is so much potential for CAS(E) This Sketch #218: Here is what I came up with: I stamped a Jillibean Soup sentiment on some ribbon with StazOn and it worked like a charm. I love that ink! I felt like making that middle bar with something other than some paper and thought that the…

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…
