Melle Papillion


Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge which has the most amazing sketch this week! As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to use a triangle as a focal point and thought I’d probably end up using a tree. But, as I was going through my wood-mounted stamps I unearthed the sweet ‘Melle Papillon’ stamp from Penny Black. I got it in 2013 and haven’t used it much at all.

Anyway, I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils and then cut it out using a triangular die. I then embossed a sentiment from my favourite things and added die cut butterflies from Memory Box and Simon Says Stamp.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Hello everyone!

Happy Valentine’s Day! As you know, I have been using my wood-mounted stamps throughout February and I hope to have created at least 28 cards using my wood-mounted stamps by the end of the month. But that doesn’t mean I’ve completely stopped playing with my new stamps! I bought this fabulous Avery Elle peacock just before Christmas. Perfect for today!

I coloured it using my Twinkling H2Os and also added a few die cut hearts which I’d coloured with the same paint.

I’m entering this in the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, plus the current Color Throwdown Challenge (black, dark pink and grey).

Thanks for stopping by!


You are so loved

Happy Saturday friends!

Today’s playing along with two of my favourite challenges – the Color Throwdown and the Memory Box monthly challenge.

The Color Throwdown’s palette this week is navy, grey and green and when I saw it, I knew I wanted to incorporate flowers or foliage in someway. In the end, I decided to use one of the very first dies my mum bought – the Memory Box Serafina Heart die. She’s been taking a break from crafting for a while and I’m ‘looking after’ some of her craft supplies until she gets back into it!

I added the die cut to a navy heart, also by Memory Box and added a few pearls for the flower centres. I then embossed a Hero Arts sentiment on a grey background panel before lightly stamping a My Favorite Things background stamp using versamark ink.

I stuck the heart to the base card with funky foam and added a few more mini pearls to finish off my card.

Bold Bright Star

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along with the current Poppystamps challenge where the theme is ‘starry night’. Now, I admit I was a little stumped when I first saw the theme as I don’t have many star stamps by Poppystamps and none that lend themselves well to a starry night scene. Then I read the blog post and the team is looking for projects with a star this month. Now, that I can do with my Poppystamps dies!

I used the Stitched Star Cutouts die to cut my base card and then I inlaid some pink and purple stars. I also added a few punched stars and an Open Studio/Memory Box stamped sentiment.

Merry Whittle Christmas

Happy Christmas Eve everyone!

Just thought I’d pop in and share I card I made using the super cute Poppystamps Whittle Deer! Have you seen the range? So cute and brilliant price point.

Anyway, I used the Memory Box Countryside Circle die to cut my base card. I then added an ink blended background behind the scene and added the Whittle Deer and a star.

I decided to add the kraft circle to frame the scene and then stamped a My Sentiments Exactly sentiment to complete my card.

I’m going to enter this into the current Poppystamps Challenge – Merry and Bright.

Thanks for stopping by!


Sparkle and Shine

Hi everyone!

I’m popping in with a super quick card that I made for the current Memory Box challenge – Holiday Sparkle and Shine.

I chose two Memory Box dies that I bought at Alexandra Palace in September – the older Alpine Snowflake die plus a 2018 sentiment die – the Merry Christmas Cheshire Script die.

All my Christmas cards are made, written and sent but I think I may well be using these designs for some mass-produced cards next year!
