I have loved making cards ever since I was a young girl. Little did I know when I was making cards with paper, paint, crayons and even mum's lace and sequin supplies that I would keep enjoying this hobby later in life. The cardmaking/papercrafting women and men all over the world are absolutely inspirational and have created this great community which I'm lucky to be a part of.

Two Cards For Valentines Day

I’m sharing two cards I made for Valentines this year…both cards have the same background where I added a bit of distress ink on plain red cardstock and then used a Simon Says Stamp heart background stencil with some white embossing paste…

For my first card I added an image and a sentiment from MFT Bionic Bots stamp set….and for my second card I used a funny flying hippo stamp from a Katzelkraft stamp set called Les Jungles….the sentiment for this card is from Clearly Besotted stamps…

Thanks so much for stopping by today…hope you will have a happy and crafty day…


Altenew Mod Vases

This is the card idea I had instantly thought of when I saw the new release Mod Vases stamp and dies by Altenew.

I have also used these Altenew products to make this card – Focus On You stamp set, Sentiment Strips stamp set, Metallic Watercolours, Crisp Dye Inks.

For the embossing I have used sizzix gold tinsel embossing powder as well as Nuvo glaze to give a bit more shine and dimension to the gold flowers.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Happy crafting!!
