Plane and Simple Embossing

Today I’m sharing a card featuring a white heat embossed acetate panel. I love the look of this technique, especially when layered over a panel of colour. I shared another card previously using this technique - click here to check out that card too. I cut a piece of heat resistant acetate and treated it… Continue reading Plane and Simple Embossing

Triptych with Cherry Blossoms

I’m sharing a triptych style card today featuring the Pretty Pink Posh Cherry Blossoms stamp set. A triptych is a picture across three panels, and the stitched pieces die is great for creating this look. I wanted to do some watercolouring with my zig pens, so I cut a piece of watercolour card to the… Continue reading Triptych with Cherry Blossoms

Me and My Galaxy Dragon

I shared a photo the other day on instagram of a dragon from the Mama Elephant Me and My Dragon stamp set, which I’d coloured to be a galaxy dragon. I used Faber Castell polychromos pencils to do this. I’ve done plenty of distress ink galaxy backgrounds before, but never tried using colouring pencils so… Continue reading Me and My Galaxy Dragon

Spotlighting with Sparkle Dot Patterns 2

The spotlighting technique is one of my favourites for using on cards. I thought I’d try it with the new Sparkle Dot Patterns 2 set. I die cut two scalloped frames, in the smaller size, from white card. I used one as a guide to know where to stamp my sentiment, one of my favourites… Continue reading Spotlighting with Sparkle Dot Patterns 2

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 24 – Fun with Dies

I’m joining in with the Lawn Fawnatics Fun with Dies challenge today. To begin, I die cut two Lawn Fawn stitched squares, slightly smaller than my 4 inch square white card base. I then used a Lawn Fawn Zig Zag square die to cut a window in one of stitched squares. On the other square,… Continue reading Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 24 – Fun with Dies

Spring Brushstroke Blooms

Spring is my favourite season. I look forward to the tree blossom and daffodils, and hopefully some warmer weather! My card today has a spring feel to it, with the sunshine yellows, complimented by a touch of soft grey. I began by stamping some flowers from the MFT Brushstroke Blooms stamp set. I used MFT… Continue reading Spring Brushstroke Blooms
