The theme of today’s blog post wasn’t intentional. I didn’t exactly expect to mess up one of my cards, let alone both. But I did, and then I fixed them, so that seemed like a linking theme to discuss for them.
We’re in the birthday spirit at Cupcake Inspirations this fortnight, with our theme being Balloons. Although that doesn’t mean you have to make a birthday card – you could use balloons for a new baby, a wedding, whatever you prefer! As long as there are balloons as a feature on your project, you can join … More CIC 524 | Birthday Hedgehog | Balloons
I don’t think I’ve ever made an inchie card before. A quick search of my blog doesn’t bring up any results for the word. As much as I enjoy clean and simple designs, the amount of white space required for a card that only has a square inch of decoration is a bit intimidating! This … More Reindeer Twinchie | CAS Card
We are in the midst of our blue, lime and yellow challenge at Cupcake Inspirations, and I’m back to share my reminder card with you. We’re sponsored by Di’s Digi Stamps, and one lucky person who plays along will win 2 digi stamps of their choice, so it is definitely worth joining in!
I have cards planned for pretty much every day this month. Do I have them made yet? No. Do I at least make them with plenty of time to spare on the day I want them to be going live? Also no. I just got finished with making and photographing this one, and it is … More Beach Day | CAS Card
I really enjoy colouring. But sometimes it’s nice to have other ways to use our stamps. For today’s card instead of colouring I did paper piecing! Actually, there was still a little colouring because I added some shading… But for the most part, the colour all comes from using various snippets of patterned paper.
I have an awful cold. Possibly a chest and/or sinus infection. Certainly feels like it. As a result I spent the majority of the day mindlessly scrolling and looking at cards on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Until I suddenly remembered that the MFT Sketch Challenge is ending soon and I wanted to play along with … More You’re The Best | CAS Card

A few days ago I decided I wanted to participate in Kendra’s Card Challenge. If you don’t know what that is, basically you use 6 patterned papers to make a whole bunch of cards following particular guidelines. Details can be found here. I had already decided I wanted to use Honey Bee Stamp’s “The Bees … More Bees! | Kendra’s Card Challenge
I’m sharing a square card today. And look – a white card base! I found a pack of white card that was hiding, so I do have white bases to play with after all. It’s a bit lighter weight than I prefer, and is EU size not US size, but it’ll do in a pinch. … More Vellum Sakura Blossom | CAS Card
