Another really easy fun fold card. That looks super effective. This one incorporates stamps from the Daisy Mae Design Village Bakery Collection and really makes me want cake....

Wizardly Magic Dutch Door Card

Image
I have a Harry Potter mad daughter who is Team Slytherin 

The Inspiration for this card begun to grow when I came across the ribbon on eBay on a late night shopping experience. I purchased the ribbon and then spent along time searching for the perfect stamp set to match it with. I eventually decided on the Hello Bluebird Halloween set featuring Tabitha, it has a girl, a cat, some bags, a witch hat and some potions  and spell books. It looked perfect. I ordered it from America and as her birthday drew closer it still hadn't arrived. Then I discovered the Wizardly Magic from the Little Dudes Collection at Polkadoodles and my mind was made. This was just perfect for what I had in mind.

Fathers Day Card

I always struggle when it comes to male cards, the inspiration just does not flow like it does with female cards. So when Creative Stamping magazine came with a free set of Hunkydory, For the Love of Stamps The Great Outdoors stamp set, earlier in the year I knew that I would save them for this occasion.

Tent Stepper Card

Image
I wanted to create a card where I could show off the vast majority of the Daisy Mae Faraway Collection. I wanted a woodland scene but all the folds I tried just looked swaped with the size of the toadstool and the tree stump house. But the tent stepper allows the little scene to play out perfectly

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.

VE Day Memorial Inspired Sympathy Card

Image
I have known what I wanted to do with this stamp since the moment I ordered it. It is not often that happens for me, but I knew the moment I saw the stamp flash up on my facebook news feed early one morning that I just had to have it. 
It is the 75th Anniversary of VE Day and our village had a street party and entertainment planned. The bank holiday had been changed from the Monday to the Friday to commemorate the day. But Coronavirus put an end to our planned celebrations with lockdown been on the cards instead. 
So our VE day bank holiday consisted of decorating the house in home made bunting and an afternoon tea of dairy free scones (child with an allergy) which were an absolute disaster. I actually had to ask the children not to use them as weapons as they would do some serious damage.

A Vibrant Fun Fold Card

Image
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.
