I started out stamping the image on some white paper with InkOn 3 Fadeout Ink. I love this ink as it makes no-line coloring a lot easier. Once I had the image stamped, I took out my Fabercastell Polychromos and started coloring.
I used a variety of pinks and greens for the image. The flowers in this set are great and I’ll definitely be using them again. I wanted to make a simple card so paired it with this fun sentiment that I stamped in Verafine ink.
I used kraft cardstock for the card base to keep everything light and simple. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

I added a frame cut from Coconut White Card using the Double Stitched Squares and matted onto Coconut White, Soft Salmon and Silver Shine Pearl Card.
I cut both dies in the Filigree Artistry Woven Heart Die Set out of Silver Shine Pearl Card. I cut the outer die only out of Soft Salmon Textured Card. I trimmed the decorative edge from the Soft Salmon die cut and glued it behind the Soft Salmon…
Hello everyone, hope you’re all doing well today. It’s not been too long since the St. Patrick’s Day card post but I really haven’t had many card making posts at all this year, have I? I do need to start making cards more regularly.
Well, anyway, if you haven’t guessed already I have some cards to show you today.
I had a number of birthdays to catch up on over February and April so my card making day in the craft room had to accommodate that. After brainstorming some ideas, I settled on some cards that would use up a bunch of the scraps I had left from making the activity cards back in December.
I mixed and matched the pieces of card to make stripes and rather than stamping a sentiment (because there’s a lot of going on in the patterns)…
I hope you enjoyed the shows yesterday. It’s a quick turnaround for me as I have more shows on Saturday – this time with Jane Gill’s latest release of Woodware Stamps. So, I have a sneak peek for you today –
These cards feature the Picked For You Stamp Set and use a technique taught to me many years ago by Sue Wilson – Faux Batik.
Hey guys, hope everyone is doing great. Thought I would share this dreamy make with you.
While I was putting this card together, I was thinking about the dreams that I had. I wrote a bucket list that I update now and then.
I want to see so much of the world. Pyramids in Egypt, dance at the full moon party in Thailand, (I was younger when I put that on in), see Africa and South America.
Some of the others on the list are what a lot of people put on theirs. Hot Air Balloon ride, swimming with dolphins, but what I would love to do is dig an architectural site from the Incas or Romans. Im just fascinated at how people used to live and especially their art and crafts, it’s very interesting.
Most people think this is boring, so I don’t bring it up much.
Anyway, I used Versamagic Chalk ink in Pink Pertunia and Aloe Vera for the background and Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish in Pink Thistle on the Dreamcatcher.
I love spring so much with it’s warmer weather and statement flowers. The daffodil has to be springs iconic flower, but for me it’s the blossom.
Cherry blossom is a beautiful, pink little flower that has stolen first place in my list of flowers.
In honour of the cheeky cherry blossom, I made this card using Chloe Endeans’ amazing stamp designs.
On this make I wanted a sense of movement, like blossoms blowing in a breeze.
I used aqua markers to add the colours, then pulled it out using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle brush pen, they work like a water brush.
I love using Spectrum Noir brush pen in Crystal Clear, as it adds a touch of sparkle that you don’t always notice right away.
Great quotation from Einstein!
I love Chloe’s stamps and use them in my everyday stamping. There is always some eye catching detail in the designs.
Hey, thanks for checking in. As it’s spring I am attempting to Spring Clean my stash. I’ll keep you posted 😊
