Give It A Whirl Dies

 Hello everyone.

When I saw the Give It A Whirl dies in the annual catalogue I knew I just had to buy them.  They make such fun cards and the set comes with a lot of added extras which is always a bonus.

I wanted to share the card today that I had made with the set.  I also made a little how to video which you can find over on my You Tube channel : CLICK HERE

I found that the Nothings Better Than stamp set work perfectly with the dies and I thought it would make a super fun card for all coffee, chocolate and cookie lovers, like me.



All you do is turn the little disc at the side to reveal what's behind each window.  I love it and its so much fun to make and send to someone.

Daring Cardmakers - Peacock

 Hello everyone.

Its challenge time from the team at the Daring Cardmakers and our lovely host this week is Joanne.  

Joanne would like to see Peacocks featuring on your cards.  It might be an image of the bird itself, feathers or simply the beautiful rich colours of the peacocks plumage.

I decided to go clean and simple and back to a technique that I haven't used in a while, heat embossing.

I love watching the powder melt revealing a beautiful image.


I have used a retired Stampin Up stamp to create the peacock.  I just stamped the stunning image in versamark ink and added some white embossing powder.  I then added some pretty sequins to the tail feathers and a little wink of stella to the body.

Thanks for stopping by today and please head over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a lovely weekend.

Pretty Pansy

 Hello everyone.

I am sharing a card today that uses the dies from the Pansy Patch bundle and the gorgeous designer series paper.

The pansies are super easy to put together. The hardest part was deciding what colour to use, I have used some lovely purple shades.


I also wanted to showcase the fabulous designer series paper so I used a lovely big piece on the front of the card.  I also used a little ink underneath the flower just to add a little detail.

I finished the card with a sentiment from the matching stamp set and added some sparkle.

Shadow Box Inspired Card

Hello everyone.

I have a fun 3d card shape to share with you today.  I found the idea over at Jennifer Mcguire Ink and it also gave me the opportunity to use the fabulous blending brushes to create a lovely sea inspired scene.

Once I create the base of the card I used two stamp and die sets that work perfectly together, the sailing home and friends are like seashells sets.  If you are a big fan of the beach then these sets are a must have.

I used the blending brushes to create the sort of sunset background, which I love and the brushes made it so easy.

The best part of this card is that it folds flat to fit in an envelope so great for posting and it will just pop back up.
