All Change

My life is about to completely change and I am in the process of transition.

I will be taking a short break from my blog and groups for a short time, but I will be back, please just bear with me for a short while, whilst I work out the logistics.

Don’t forget you can still access my shop to take advantage of the great offers we have at the moment.

Until next time, happy crafting

Pansy Petals Card

This is one of those bundles you really have to have a good play with to get the most out of it. I would also suggest checking out YouTube if you are struggling with it, as there are several good videos on there showing you how to use all the different elements.

Pansy Petals Suite – Annual Catalogue 2021/2022 pages 28 and 29

Card Base – Bermuda Bay Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″
1st layer – Mint Macaron Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
2nd Layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″
Scraps of Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party and Soft Saffron Cardstock for the pansies
Scraps of Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen Cardstock for the leaves.

Inside layer – Basic White cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

Die cut out the elements as shown in the picture. For the overlay pieces I would recommend using adhesive sheets as it is very messy using liquid glue.

For the inside of the card I used the smaller pansy stamps.

Don’t forget it is also a great time to join and you could pick a bundle from the mini catalogue for free. Check out my shop for more details.

Until next time, happy crafting

Anchor Card

Another simple Card today using the Sailing home set. I loved this set as soon as I saw it and have used it so many times. This time I wanted to concentrate on the anchor.

Cherry Blossom Card

I have come to Nailsea near Bristol to visit my daughter. Spent some time with my parents today, as they have just moved here. It was lovely as I haven’t seen them in over a year and a half because we don’t drive and obviously we haven’t been able to go on public transport.

A very simple card for you today as I didn’t want to distract from the image, and also I like cards that I can use if I want to send a simple note to someone. I use cards like this if I have to write a note to a teacher, or to put in a parcel.

Card Base – Flirty Flamingo Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″
1st layer – Basic White Cardstock 4 1/2″ x 2 1/2″

Inside Layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

The image on the front of the card was stamped in Memento Black Ink and coloured with our Stampin’ Blends. For a large image like this, I like to use my Stamparatus.

The front panel was secured using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The dies that coordinate with this Stamp set are great too. It really is one of my favourite sets for images.

Until next time, happy crafting

Gold Dragonfly Card

I wish this weather would make up it’s mind. I don’t know what to pack for my trip. I have lovely new summer dresses that I bought when the weather was hot, but now I’m thinking I may need more weather-proof clothes. Although I am always hot, so I end up taking my coat off. Do they do waterproof summer dresses? 😆

Base Card – Basic Black cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″

2nd Layer – Basic Layer – Basic Black Cardstock 5 1/4″ x 3 1/2″

Inside layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3/7″

The dragonflies were heat embossed in Gold embossing powder.

The Be Dazzling Speciality Paper is free when you place an order of £45 or more during Sale-a-bration. I wasn’t sure I would like it when I saw it in the catalogue, but when I saw it for real, I loved it. Someone I know described it as like an eighties boob tube material and it is, but it’s great 😆

We have a great joining offer during Sale-a-bration too.
