I wanted to create a layered card but keep the dimension to a minimum, so it's easy to mail. I've used circles to create scenes within layers. This is a small card, so I only have 3 layers (two plus the card base). The bigger the card, the more layers you can use, but obviously… Continue reading Duh-Nuh Circle Scene Card
I'm joining in with the MFT Sketch challenge with this fun hippo card. I began by applying MFT ink to a white card base, then adding a piece of patterned paper to the bottom edge, cut with a scalloped edge border die. For the top part of the card, I die cut a speech bubble… Continue reading MFT Sketch Challenge 342

Happy Tuesday! Today I'm sharing a card featuring in-laid die cutting. This is one of my favourite techniques for adding depth to a card.

As I needed a smaller rainbow to fit within the box card, I only used the… Continue reading Rainbow Baby Box Card
It's been a while since I've done any watercolouring so it was time to get my zig clean colour real brush pens out again for this card. I started by heat embossing some leaves from the Altenew Hello Sunshine stamp set with gold embossing powder. I added a sentiment from the Altenew Celebrate stamp set… Continue reading Watercolour Roses
I got the MFT Blueprints 31 dienamics set recently. Just looking at it reminds me of minions so I had to make a minion card! I used some Lawn Fawn card stock for the yellow, die cutting it with the largest rounded stitched rectangle in the set. I cut the middle piece from black card… Continue reading Minions
I'm joining in with the MFT challenges again as it's been ages since I have, for one reason or another. What better way then to dive back in and combine both challenges on one card! I really love the colour challenge colours and think they are perfect for a masculine card. I began by using… Continue reading MFT Sketch Challenge 340
Today I'm sharing some jelly bean birthday cards. I just love their funny faces! I used the companion shaker die set with the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? stamp set to make some shaker cards. I've been making multiples of my cards recently as, once everything is out, it doesn't take much more time to… Continue reading Shake those Jelly Beans!
