A Little Bit Cheeky!

I saw this stamp set from Indigo Blu and knew I had to have it as I have too many of those friends and family who need to have a slightly naughty but funny card.


I made this card for my friend who has the same sense of humour as me!  Very plain and simple and easy to make...I think the sentiment says it all lol!

New Baby

I recently received a request from a lady to make a baby card in the  style of the large 12" x 6" cards I make with birds on.  I must admit, it had never occurred to me to turn this into a new baby card so added a small nest and all three sizes of the MDF birds representing the parents and baby!  


The lady in question liked it so much that she ordered another one from me in pink!

Birthday Cake

I have been a bad blogger (and crafter) recently, mostly due to family stuff and life in general so sorry.  

Here's a card I saw demonstrated a while ago and I loved the simplicity of it so thought I would give it a go.


Paint Strokes

Here's another clean and simple card - needed something for my brother's birthday and decided this would suit a male card as well as being quite modern.


Used a Tim Holtz stamp for the paint effects together with a selection of Distress Oxides which I then applied around the second layer of cardstock and finally added a large bold sentiment from Stamp By Me.
These are very quick to make so made a few more for my card box with slightly different colours.

The Final Ones!

Here are the last of the cards and because I wanted quick ones, I went for my old favourite of the Altenew butterfly with the watercolour effect.  Again, different sentiments were added.


Batchmaking Part III!

Here are the penultimate cards from last weekend.  This time I used a technique demonstrated a year or so ago which allows you to make two slightly different cards at the same time.  I used a Tattered Lace dragonfly die to stencil through for one card and then used the actual die cut for the second one.  Add different sentiments and you have a few cards made in little or no time at all.




Batchmaking Part II

Here are the next set of cards I made.  When I first made the original new home card, I painted the whole sheet of chipboard shapes in one go, that way I only got covered in paint just the once!





I used different sized cards and different sentiments - these were from Wonky Tonk and thought they were ideal to go with the quirky houses.
