Today I have a very clean and simple design to share. I used one of the cute Penny Black hedgehogs to sit on top of a sentiment that was discarded from a previous card…. and I didn’t want to put it aside because you already know that I would never use it, so while I’m motivated I’m using it!
Today I have an extra special collaboration video with Olga Direktorenko. She creates the most amazing papercraft projects with a focus on die cutting and her blog is called Building Your World (what a perfect name)!
The focus today was water lilies and the Lotus set from Altenew was an obvious choice for me.
When I saw the smaller sized Action Wobbles I just knew I ‘had to have‘ them, and now my world is complete lol. They are seriously the perfect size… and for a person who makes very few ‘interactive’ cards, I’m hooked! I decided to film as I created so you can watch the process.

One of the most beautiful ‘flowers’ ever and so perfect on a Christmas card, especially in ‘gold’. Our Poinsettias have just finished flowering as we are now heading into Spring / Summer here, but they do add such a brightness to the garden, actually I have a memory that they are not flowers but that they are coloured leaves? Do you know, or did I dream that? Oh, and I also decided to film as I coloured.
Hi there, today I have a focus post for Altenew and that means you get to see three cards all created using the same stamp set. It’s another fab layering flower set which we know Altenew does so well, this one is called Remember This.
For my first card (and video) I was inspired by this card HERE created by Lisa Johnson, she is amazing and I’ve had this card pinned on my board for ages and purposely didn’t look at it before I started creating as I wanted to create my own version…. there are still lots of similarities though, but how do you improve on perfection. Thanks Lisa for the inspiration.
Here’s my next card, I thought I would go for a vintage style look,
For my final card I couldn’t stop adding gold…
So why not head over to the Altenew blog for some more info on these cards as well as lots more inspiration from the rest of the team with this fabulous new release. ps. the products are linked below. Hugs,
This time the call was for Diamonds / Jewels for the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine and I realised that I had not one….. sadly. But I got creative and this is what I came up with, it’s hard to see in this below average photo but each section of the diamond is a shaker… so cool!
Loving the sentiment too which is a wood veneer from Freckled Fawn, they have such fun embellies. Have a great day,
Happy Birthday to my sister and Happy New Year to you all!
My sister has an owl fixation and this year for her birthday her card had to include an owl, of course. So out came this little cutie from Mama Elephant and I just love how he stamped out in orange. I filmed as I created so you can watch the process.
Hope you’ve had fun this New Years and that you’re head is not too sore… I would just like to take a moment to thank every one of you for your visits and supportive comments , it really does mean so much to me. I would also like to wish you an absolutely wonderful 2016, may there be lots of smiles and laughter! Big New Years Hugs to you,
