Summer

Morning all. I'm here today with an inspiration post for a summer themed card. I could have created so many different cards for the current challenge over at Polkadoodles this fortnight but decided to keep it CAS and even if I do say so myself pretty 'cool' 😎


I thought the backing paper here was just so bright and vibrant all I did was use a little spray glitter to make it sparkle in the sunlight, I then opted for the sentiment and made that the focal point with a little bit of matting and layering, I then printed off a couple of the sunglass images and layered them up adding them to the corner for a bit of interest.

I do hope you like this weeks creation, thanks for stopping by, feel free to leave me a comment as I do love to read them.

Happy Birthday Karen!

Hi everyone, today I'm sharing a card I recently made for a very dear friend. For a change I had a little play with my Inktense pencils & Octavia Moonfly Wistful (skin: baked earth, willow, deep rose, hair: mid vermillion, red oxide, madder brown, dress/tights: felt green, hookers green, beech green, shiraz, crimson, hot red, eyes/wings: iris blue, leaf: ionion green, iron green, mushroom: sepia ink, bark, oak, saddle brown, shiraz, crimson,hot red) the pretty floral arrangement was created using Birdhouse Doublet & Flowers 1 die sets. The sentiment is from the Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Collection. I hope you like it?

Robin Cuddles

We are still concentrating on 'Christmas in July' over at Polkadoodles this fortnight & I decided to have a play with the new, uber cute Robin Cuddles stamp. I pushed myself this week by giving water colouring another go, I'm not very brave when it comes to using different mediums but I think it came out ok although I could definitely do with some more practice!


The backing paper & sentiment came from Festive Christmas. I added some snowflake embossing behind the main image along with some red ribbon. The additional piece of holly is another stamp on the Santa Clause stamp set.

Many thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave me a comment. I do love to read them.

Christmas in July

So over at Polkadoodles we have decided to get you thinking about Christmas. After all it does have a habit of kind of creeping up o you. So with that in mind the DT are here to give you some ideas.

I fancied giving a flip flop card a go. I found a simple to follow tutorial on You Tube made my base card and then used elements from Winnie Winterland & Ribbon/Gift Dies to decorate. I'm really happy with the result. What do you think?
