Cut round the image and stuck on the embossed heart. Used Lemon dot embossed paper behind. Added lemon and white ribbon tied with blue thread. Hope you like this card.....loved making it.

garden things

Even though we no longer have a garden I still like to look round garden centres and see all the flowers in bloom..Get so much inspiration from photos like this.

Lottie Easel card

I love this stamp and use it alot. Did this for my class and made a simple easel card. Lottie was stamped using Distress ink Walnut Stain, then with a damp paint brush just drawed the ink out.

Hello. Been making so many cards as I design for my local craft shop.  This is just overstamping the image and adding a few gems and silver and black card.

Love this bear stamp by Indigo Blue. Made him for baby cards by just changing the background colour. he stamps beautiful and doesn't really need anything else on the card. Just added a couple of buttons as I think buttons have become my trade mark.......

This is a beautiful stamp by Hero Art. Used Poppy pro-marker to colour the flowers in.
I get asked for Poppy cards so often. Just used a little stickles for the inside of the flowers and a white gel pen to give some highlight to the petals.

Hello to you all. Sorry for lack of absence, but had alot going on. Just come back from 5 days in Scotland. The weather was glorious and Scotland was FAB. So many photos that I need to sort out.
Since I last blogged I got approached by someone opening a shop and wants me to supply my cards and handmade gifts to her. Also I am on a design team for our local craft shop, so been very busy.
Been getting to grips with getting really messy with inks and stamps and must admit getting hooked.
Have made this card with Indigo Blu stamps. Added bit of lace which I distressed with Walnut Stain. Mounted onto a Kraft card. Hope you like.......
