I am very excited to be able to announce that I am joining the Merry Monday Design Team as a Guest Designer for the rest of the year! I’m really looking forward to working alongside the wonderfully talented cardmakers that are on the DT. Given the name of my blog and my blogging name this … More Christmas Joy (With Video) – MM 255
A couple of days ago I mentioned that I had, unusually for me, started working on a card and then set it aside to make a different one instead. This is that card! I’d done all the colouring and stamping, but wasn’t sure what else I wanted to do with it. Today I got it … More Balloon Hugs
As I get myself back into the routine of making cards regularly, I’m trying to make life easier for myself with sweet and simple cards. Things that are not too time consuming to make. I still want to have fun with them though. That’s partly why I experimented with two new-to-me techniques in this card … More Kissed Flowers
This card was one of the more time-consuming ones I have made because I had to wait for the paint to dry between layers. It makes a change for me to do proper watercolour painting – usually when I watercolour I use watercolour pencils. It was certainly a nice change doing it this way!
I’m back! I do apologise for going AWOL. I wanted to make cards, but I just haven’t had the energy. I barely had the energy for it today, but did manage in the end. This card actually involves a technique that is new to me – smooshing.
When I had the idea for this card I really wasn’t sure how it would turn out. I was a bit sceptical if I’m honest. But now that it’s done I actually think it worked very well!
Sometimes it is really difficult to come up with names for these cards… My reasoning behind the name for this card was the colour scheme for the butterfly. It seemed rather royal to me! In any case, naming aside I had a lot of fun making this card. And I do love the look of … More Royal Butterfly
I didn’t have a definite plan for this card when I got started with it. I knew in a very rough sense what I wanted to do – card with a channel with butterflies in – but beyond that I had no idea. It’s fun sometimes just to sit down and see where the creativity takes … More Butterfly Hugs
This card was put together in a bit of a rush. Today’s schedule went totally out of the window and I ended up having to make this quite last minute. There are bits of it I like and bits I don’t.
I had a lot of fun with this card. It didn’t come together exactly as I intended, but close enough for me to be happy with it. I think I’d need to practice a bit more to get it “perfect”. For some reason all the pictures I took of it came out blurry… I only … More Anniversary Doves
