Lately I can’t get enough of Kraft.  That’s kraft (or crumb cake from Stampin’ Up!) coloured cardstock and ink and ribbon and all sorts of earthy natural tones. So for this card I combined that earthiness with some shine. I have had this card in my “To CASE” file for quite some time. And since […]


……. for a while anyway.  These last couple of cards are from the combined inspiration of my friend Deena and I.  Back to more traditional colours this time.  This first card using the Dasher stamp from Stampin’ Up! uses Pear Pizzaz, Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.  And the striped Riding Hood Red […]


Deena and I thought we’d try a different colour combination for these Christmas Cards.  Real Read and Tempting Turquoise.  I actually really love it.  I’m more of a red and green girl for Christmas.  But this is fresh and bright. What do you think?  What colour combinations do you like for Christmas?


Well, I said that I would try and keep you posted as to what I’m up to lately.  I haven’t been on here since I said that so I thought I better give you something to look at. Here are a couple more Christmas cards that my friend Deena and I made: Not the best […]


….in the shopping centres and all over the place.  It’s only October!  Isn’t it too early for all that? Having said that, I know there are some things that have to be done in advance.  Like making Christmas Cards.  I’ve had a request to make 100 cards for a lovely lady.  These will be her […]


….and a tiny bit of “bling”. Over at Just Add Ink the challenge this week is to add pink and bling to your creations.  This is to help raise awareness for Breast Cancer as it is National Pink Ribbon Day on the 25th October. I pulled out a left over card from a workshop that […]


If you can believe it, I’ve never used the colour Real Red from Stampin’ Up!.  And now that I’ve used it, I don’t know why I haven’t used it sooner. A friend of mine, Deena, and I are doing a class together for a group of ladies and needed to come up with a card […]


I saw the new challenge over at Just Add Ink and had to play along.  I think the layout is perfect.  But I did have to change it a little to make this card: Love this girl and the little sentiment fits perfectly “Girly, you rock!”


Look what you can do with only one stamp set!  This is a new set called Friends Never Fade.  This is such an easy set to work with and it can be used for the main image and the background too. I saw Amanda Reddicliffe’s card like this and knew that I would have to […]


I love a challenge, and the team from the Helping Hudson set a good one.  It’s Challenge 9 – Colour, and the task is to use only one colour.  You can add one neutral colour, I chose white, and use your main colour in varying shades to make your project.  I set myself an even […]
