Cinder-hell-a…..you shall go to the ball!

I love making Halloween cards as it’s the one occasion where you can really let loose your imagination and mix together some great colours. Rich oranges, greens, and purples contrast so well with black and make for a really eye-catching card. Every year I go…

A Bit More Barkley

I really like the Barkley range of stamps by Crafter’s Companion and having made this card, wanted to share another I have made. I stamped the image with black Memento ink and then coloured it with my Spectrum Noir pens. Then I used some Nellie’s…

Off To See The World…

No, I’m not about to take a year out to go travelling (although that would be lovely!) I have, however made this travel inspired card to enter the Spectrum Noir Challenge this month. I love this stamp by Kenny K, and coloured it using the…

Trick or Treat!

I decided on a break from all the festivities of Christmas cardmaking, and turned my attention to Halloween. Every year Graphic 45 outdo themselves and release a gorgeous collection of papers to celebrate the season of the witch. This year is no exception, and their…

Christmas is Coming…

I’ve already been busy making sample Christmas cards for a few weeks now, so when I saw this month’s challenge on the Crafter’s Companion blog I just couldn’t resist having a go. They have so many beautiful products in their Christmas range that I was…

Out of this World

It’s birthday time again! I made this spaceship card for someone special, using these fantastic retro space papers and stickers. The card is a concertina type which gave me plenty of room to layer on loads of images. Happy Birthday Keiron xxx  

Mothers’ Day Card

After a short break away in the Lake District, I’ve been looking forward to getting back into my crafting routine. The next ‘big’ event on my list is Mothers’ Day, so I sat down last Friday and made my cards. I love these cute Tilda…

Nyan Cat Card

My daughter is a Nyan fan! Nyan Cat (for those of you who have somehow managed to avoid the phenomenon) is a pop tart with a cat face that flies through a starry sky leaving a rainbow trail behind him. All this to a background…

Happy Valentine’s Day

Love is in the air……and I can now share my Valentine’s card with you all as the big day has now arrived. Hopefully the recipient loved it (well, there are no ‘Poncy Bears’ on it, so that’s a start!) I wanted to make something classic,…

Goodbye, Good Luck

This week, a lovely work colleague is leaving and I wanted to make her a keepsake gift. I had read about handmade Survival Kits on the internet last year and thought that this would be perfect. I used a tin (from Ikea) and various bits…
