You may have noticed I haven’t been posting a lot recently. This year, and even into a good portion of last year too, I’ve been dealing with a serious loss of crafty motivation. I used to be a very prolific craft maker. In 2018 I made 400 cards over the course of the year. In … More You’re A Star | CAS Card Design
It’s starting to feel summery here in Finland, and I thought I’d channel that energy into my card for this month’s Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge. Our theme for the month is Bottoms Up, which (despite not indulging myself) brings alcohol to mind. You can of course interpret the prompt however you like along as … More HLS CAS Challenge | Summer Drink | Bottoms Up
This pair of shaped cards were entirely inspired by the sentiment from Skull and Cross Buns’ Crafting Is My Superpower stamp set. I decided that if crafting is a superpower, why not make super hero inspired shaped cards! Female super hero outfits often seem to be ridiculously skimpy, so I played up to that with … More Skull And Cross Buns | Shaped Superhero Card | Video
The Love From Lizi July card kit is so full of summery goodness. You may have already seen how I combined the tassels that came in the kit with some of the stamps and a touch of ink blending.

I was aiming … More Chunky Monkey Crafts | Alright Summer | Lifted Ink Blending

With the coffee hop going strong I couldn’t resist making a coffee card for my The Little Paper Tree design team project. (You can see my previous entries to the hop here, here and here.) I kept it clean and simple, and played with the ombre stamping technique for adding colour to my card.
I was on the Blank Page Muse blog earlier this month sharing a pretty floral birthday card using the emboss resist technique. I was ill at the time and didn’t manage to share about it here! If you haven’t seen it yet you can find it here. In the post I show how to create … More Floral Birthday | Emboss Resist | Blank Page Muse
Today is the start of a new challenge at Watercooler Wednesday. This time it’s all about occasions, and I created a birthday card. This card could also be used for any other celebratory occasion.
I enjoy watercolouring, but I’m not that confident at it. I think my biggest issue is that I am not patient enough to work in layers. I managed to find my patience for this card, and really enjoyed the process of creating the watercolour background panel.
