I was on the Blank Page Muse blog yesterday sharing a one layer Valentine card. If you haven’t seen it yet you can find it here. In the post I show how to create dimension by masking. There are photos of the process, and you can see the finished card over there too, so I … More Love Birds | Dimension On One Layer | Blank Page Muse
If you saw my post for The Male Room this morning, this card may look somewhat familiar. I used the same layout and basic design for both, but for that one I used patterned paper and a masculine theme, whilst for this one I went one layer, clean and simple, and of course feminine for … More WWC207 – Helen’s Feminine “Anything Goes” Challenge
It’s time for a new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations, and this time our theme is Magical Creatures!

After the fun I had with the ink blended clouds yesterday I decided to have another go at them today. I made this card for Thing 1, who is turning two tomorrow.

It’s been a few months since I last used these fairy stamps, so I figured it was about time I pull them out to make a card. I believe this is the first time I’ve used all three of the fairies on one card, and I’m very pleased with how they look together. I really enjoyed … More Amongst The Clouds
Interactive cards are a lot of fun! It’s so satisfying to play with them after finishing creating. I’ve made a few types of interactive cards – mostly shakers but I’ve also done a slider as well as a spinner card. Today I had a go at another type of interactive card – a pull tab card!
I really enjoyed making this card. I’d had the rough idea for it at the beginning of the week, and yesterday it finally solidified into a definite plan which I went ahead and made!
