Window to the Heart

    Hi there,   I’d like to share this project with you today – it’s one of those cards that came to me in a vision – I knew exactly what I wanted to create in terms of colour and layout and felt incredibly satisfied when it looked exactly as I had envisioned it!Continue reading “Window to the Heart”

Enviro Christmas Style

Hi Girls, Well this is a very different Christmas look for me – I was recently asked to create an Enviro/Red Christmas design, and the brief included the idea to totally forego a sentiment.  This felt really strange to me, but once I had created this very paired back design, I realised the Christmas TreeContinue reading “Enviro Christmas Style”

Have you discovered Summer Starfruit yet?

Its a little bit daunting isn’t it? Not yellow, not green – I always think of this colour as Chartreuse and personally have loved it forever – but how do you use it in card making without over powering your project? I like to use it as a highlight colour rather than the main attraction – kindContinue reading “Have you discovered Summer Starfruit yet?”

Watercolour Emboss Resist Card

Hi Girls, Every now and then I see a technique that I am dying to try, and Emboss Resist with water colouring is one of these techniques.  I’ve created cards with Emboss Resist and sponging before, but after seeing a card recently by the talented Tracey Wilson which featured layer upon layer of stamping, embossingContinue reading “Watercolour Emboss Resist Card”

Sympathy Card in Soft Hues

    My card for today started with a scrap of Seam Binding Ribbon in Crumb Cake – I matched it with the same colour card base and added Bashful Blue stamping and DSP (Cheerful Treat). I think I am going to have to order another packet of Newsprint DSP before it retires – IContinue reading “Sympathy Card in Soft Hues”

One Stick Layering – Save Time and Adhesive!

Hi Girls, I had an idea for making a card with many layers of coordinating pattern paper, but knew that putting the card together would be very time consuming and use a tonne of adhesive… So I thought I’d try layering the strips on top of each other, sticking only the bottom side and encouragingContinue reading “One Stick Layering – Save Time and Adhesive!”

Distressing Dots Making Another Appearance…

When new goodies arrive from Stampin’ Up! I often give my favourite new item a good ole’ bashing 🙂 My new background stamp Distressed Dots is definitely one of those items! If you love this stamp and don’t own it yet, there are only 2 weeks left before it retires from the catalogue so best you sendContinue reading “Distressing Dots Making Another Appearance…”

One Stamp Cards (Almost!)

So many of us feel we need an abundance of stamps to make a great card but it just isn’t true! My card for today is one I designed for La La Designs in Leederville, I wanted to keep the layout fairly clean and let the DSP and central stamp speak for themselves.  Lately IContinue reading “One Stamp Cards (Almost!)”

Happy Mother’s Day Mum!

I whipped these cards up yesterday for my dear Mum and Mother – in – Law using a very retired and sought after Parisian Breeze Cardstock weight DSP…that I love! So I only bring it out for special occasions 😉 This one is for my Mum: And for my MIL: I am really into layeringContinue reading “Happy Mother’s Day Mum!”

Pretty Chipboard Butterflies

My lovely friend Chelsea turned 14 this week and I made this card especially for her 🙂 If you have Glimmer paper in your stash you also have a sheet of very nice chipboard that comes in the packaging.  I love creating my own chipboard butterflies out of this – I simply cut it toContinue reading “Pretty Chipboard Butterflies”
