Tidings of Christmas pretty foldback card

I love this style of card – it is such a pretty way to show off gorgeous patterns – and it is a fun fold that everyone can make with just an extra score line (perfect for Christmas when you might want to make multiples of cards). The die cut foliage and leaves are perfect… Continue reading Tidings of Christmas pretty foldback card

Sweet as a Peach….with Balmy Blue

Having played around with this stamp set quite a bit….a looked at the samples I had made and they were somewhat peach coloured 🙂 yep – i had so many that were Pale Papaya / Petal Pink /Calypso Coral…. and I hadn’t brought out the Balmy Blue elements.

Sweet as a Peach-offset gatefold

So Sunday is generally my fancy fold day…but this one really is just an extra score line to a standard card base – but it just makes it a little different. This pretty card was my virtual swap for an online team retreat 3 weeks ago – it looks just as pretty with peaches or… Continue reading Sweet as a Peach-offset gatefold

Sweet as a Peach with Blended Background

Not a lot to say about this …..other than how pretty a card you can create with a little blending and some scraps of DSP 🙂 Of course the blending brushes make creating this soft and smooth background really easy…and a little sponge daubing on the peaches is my favourite technique with this stamp set.… Continue reading Sweet as a Peach with Blended Background

I am loving the soft colours in the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper (DSP) and for quite a few I like the reverse in preference to the front images…although I am loving most of those too! This is… Continue reading Hand-Penned Diagonal suspension card

You could also repeat… Continue reading Sweet Ice Cream – for a happy birthday

Hydrangea Haven…making the most of the layers

I have called this making the most of layers….as the main pieces of stamping on these projects are the extra layering pieces. I love how these little extra pieces can be used to frame a sentiment and also create a pretty background too. Of course a scattering of the pastel pearls is adds a lovely… Continue reading Hydrangea Haven…making the most of the layers

Hydrangea Haven Side Bar Card

This is another of my Hydrangea haven projects, a pretty side bar card, making the most of the Hydrangea Haven DSP before it retires and of course using some of the beautiful Mercury Acetate sheets too. Although Rococo Rose retired as an In Colour at the end of April, I think the paper works fabulously… Continue reading Hydrangea Haven Side Bar Card
