Handmade Card Simple Giraffe

I totally forgot about this digital stamp, it was a lovely surprise when I found it. I had planned to leave it as a very plain CAS card but I stupidly left it on the table and someone stood a drink on the white card, so he had to be die cut out.

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Sweet Treats

This simple card uses The Sweet Favourite Stamp Set by Daisy Mae Designs. I really love the details on the sweet jars on the shelf. It makes me think of Beamish (an open air museum in the North of England telling the story of life in the region from 1820 right through to the 1950's) and days out with family and friends. Which is just what we need at the moment 

Polkadoodles Bunnita Card

My daughter got a jelly cat bunny the day she was born from a friend of my brother. The jelly cat bunny is affectionately known as Bun. Bun has travelled everywhere Martha has. He has camped, been to Eurodisney, down a coal mine you get the drift. Martha loves every inch of Bun's ever thinning fibres.

Embossing and Negative Dies

Having the kids at home and trying to home school, work and have some form of family life is an interesting concept at the moment. I am running out of ideas to keep them entertained while trying to limit to some extent the amount of screen time they have. 

Spring Clean

I love cute animal cards but never thought I would describe a frog as cute!!! However the Daisy Mae Design Spring Clean stamp is an exception to that rule.
This cute little guy looks like he is throughly enjoying his scrub in the bucket and as such it needed a plain and simple card to allow the stamp to do the talking.

Distress Ink Background Card

The stamp in this card was one of my bargain finds, a few weeks ago and I love the vibrant flowers in the cart. It reminded me of marigolds which got my little mind working and reminded me of the dried marigold distress ink I have in my stash.
I wanted to create a background that complimented the flower colours but which did not deter your view point from the stamped image as I wanted that to remain the focal point.

Up, Up and Away Easy Fun Twisted Gatefold Card

I have had this gorgeous cloud paper for a little while now and feel this has given it the justice it deserves. It was a free download paper and Mr Printables Mr Printables Website is well worth a look, there are a lot of lovely prints.

A Vibrant Fun Fold Card

I feel like I am getting braver with distress inks and it is starting to show, I love the vibrancy of this card.

It feels really summery to me and reminds me of a red hot sunset and marigolds. Not sure why the marigolds maybe it is the orangey red.
