The theme for the challenge this week at Watercooler Wednesday is often a popular one. We’re looking for feminine themed cards. Any card that you would make and give to a woman or girl is perfect for this challenge. For my design team project I created a thank you card with a gorgeous stamp and … More WWC164 – Marsha’s Feminine “Anything Goes” Challenge
I made a lot of cards in the lead up to Christmas, and have made a fair few more since during my time off work. As a result I have almost entirely run out of white card bases. I think I have one left. Just one. I am also out of the card that I … More What’s Up Gnomie?
I’ve been playing catch-up with my card kits this month. This is actually the fourth card kit post of the month – I shared the October and November kits earlier in the month, and the tag one a couple of days ago. I’m hoping to get the STAMPtember kit sorted in the next couple of … More 10 Cards 1 Kit – SSS Card Kit December 2017
After the fun I had with yesterday’s one layer card I decided to make another today. Where yesterday’s was fairly gender neutral and featured a lot of heat embossing, today’s is definitely more feminine and whilst it has some heat embossing it focuses more on colouring. It was a fun card to make, and I’ve … More Mehndi Birthday
I’m back from my holiday! Did you miss me? I definitely missed card making. Although I did actually do some whilst I was there – I finished off the thank you cards I was making as a wedding present. Took me a lot longer than I’d expected, and I was a bit fed up with … More Summery Kraken – SSS Hello Summer Card Kit
Mother’s Day in the UK is quickly approaching. As I am from England, and my mum of course still lives there, I try to send her a card each year for their mother’s day, rather than doing it on the day that mother’s day is celebrated here in Finland. If that made sense… Anyway, I … More Mother’s Day Flowers
This card was so much fun to make. I really enjoy playing with these Altenew flowers, and they’re great for practising my colouring. I think I’m improving! I was originally planning on making this a mother’s day card, but I wanted a big, bold sentiment and didn’t have anything that quite fit the bill for … More Thanks For Everything
I have a box absolutely full of patterned paper, but I rarely seem to use it! Today I decided to rectify that, and used this bold patterned paper to create my card.
Most of the Christmas cards we send go internationally – off to England to my friends and family, one to Denmark for a close friend of ours, and some further afield like Canada and the US to my penpals. But there are a few that we give to people here in Finland. Last Christmas I … More Onnellista Joulua
Here is a colourful, (mostly) one layer card that I put together today. I experimented with no line colouring a bit more. I like the technique, but I think the combination of paper and colouring medium I used here made it not work quite as well as it could have!
