T4TD Swap

I signed up to take part in the Time For Tea Designs Card Swap on Facebook, my recipient has received her card so I can now share

Then I had a big on a mental block on the sort of card I could send and eventually came up with this idea

Kindness Hop

 I am participating in the kindness hop on Instragram. I love to send homemade cards as we have no idea what another individual is going through and yet my showing you care may lift someones spirtis in a tough time

Shake Your Tail Feathers

Fancied a change from drawing trees so thought these fabulous birds could do with a lovely garden to relax in. That one on the perch looks like he is quite enjoying the sunshine.

Card Making Tutorial 

Using the gallery die frame with the patterned paper 

I laid it over a piece of white alcohol card to ensure that my stamps lined up

These were stamped and coloured up

the frames were applied and it was adhered onto a slimline card base. It just did not look right though there was too much white so this was decorated with Nuvo drops

Thank you for reading

Card Making Tutorial

I begun my stamping and colouring Anya on the kraft card. She was coloured using alcohol markers. She was cut using the torn nesting die.

She was layer using cream card and patterned papers. These were mounted together

I used the smaller stamps in the pack with the verasmark ink and heat embossed them with the pink embossing powder. 

The background was trimmed using the deckle and blended in speckled egg


The sentiment die was cut using the same papers i used on the nesting die 


This was adhered onto an A5 Kraft Card base. The card was finished with ribbon and nuvo drops

Paper Hug Shaker

 My inspiration for this card came from this months monthly class at Kit and Clowder. The class is called botanical notes and the first chapter starts with colouring a vintage, aged envelope. This was where I got the idea for the edges

Auto Immune Awareness Hop

I am honoured to be asked to participate in a YouTube and Instagram hop to promote Auto Immune Diseases. I do not have lived experience of this but living with no thyroid does mean that I have a little insight into chronic illness and how you just wish your body would participate as you want it too. Individuals who suffer from autoimmune diseases really are warriors
