I made this card using the Prima Marketing collection Time Traveler’s Memories. It is a collection with beautiful creams, burgundy, sepia and black colours, and various vintage images. The base card is actually once piece – a gorgeous stripped and embellished bit of card – from the A4 pad, folded in half. Other elements have […]
One of my friends had his 50th recently, and I made a grungy steampunk card for the occasion with metallic inks, aged patina paint, copper layering papers and an awesome large stamp called Mister Bright Ideas by Darkroom Door.
Despite good intentions, I once again got behind with posts. This was due to a number of reasons, including: making cards for the crazy Christmas period making different cards for the New Year period going into hospital for major surgery on 23 December while I was recovering from surgery, my brother visited from the UK, […]
One of my colleagues had her birthday a while back, and I wanted to play around with some new papers and wooden embellishments I got around Christmas time. The papers are from Prima Marketing’s Epiphany collection (specifically the Striking Appearance design), which has distressed, watercolour-esque backgrounds with black doodle style images. There is a light […]
Recently two of my friends had a joint birthday party, fancy dress theme. (ok the theme was Game of thrones but I wasn’t feeling it). I had these gorgeous papers by KaiserCraft from their ‘Through the Looking-Glass’ paper set. They are very floral and vibrant, but there are also the classic illustrations by Tenniel throughout […]
Another birthday card for someone at work. This time I tried a layout I saw in a magazine, it is simple but effective I think. Fold craft cardstock, ink the edges. Trim a piece of ‘La Spa’ paper from Prima Marketing’s Fairy Belle collection, and then distress and ink the edges in a lighter (contrasting) […]
My brother’s birthday was in July, and he is a big fan of cats (like all my family). I have a tin of Cavallini & Co vintage cat poster stickers, and I found one that actually has July on it – a Harper’s cover from what I can tell. Because I am trying to use […]
This was for D’s sister, her birthday was in June. He was after something ‘not girly’, so I had to have a think about it, and what papers and stamps I have. I went with a steampunk themed card using Graphic 45’s Steampunk Debutante collection.
Recently Daedalist requested a card for a male family member. I decided to try out some new things I had to play with, and a different colour scheme to my usual ones. I think it is quite striking.
I’m a little behind with some of my updates. I’ll try to get them up over the next week or so. First up is a birthday card for one of my work colleagues. I liked the background paper and wanted to make it a feature. So I found a stamp that had a similar style […]
