One single die…2 different cards.

Hello, today I thought I would share two cards I recently made using one die and lots of Stix2products.

I wanted to make a nice Clean & Simple congratulations card to show off the lovely Stardust Glitter card from Stix2, and decided to use a flower die from Sunshine Wishes by Stampin Up! I have been a demo for years and always love dies that I can make lots of different cards with.

I, like everyone else, loathe making Sympathy cards, and I really don’t like a lot of colour on them either. I used this simple flower die to show how versatile and elegant it is.

Balloon Birthday Card

Hello, it has been a super busy quick week here. Today I am sharing a birthday card I made using card, adhesives and card blank from Stix2.

The punch and stamps are from Stampin Up, and are really versatile. I find them really hand for a wee quick card.

Anniversary Card.

Hello, today I am going to share a card I made for a friends wedding anniversary. I was stunned to find they were married 18 years, I am sure, like me, she was a child bride 😉

I am loving the Swirly Scribbles dies from Stampin Up and have turned into my go-to dies for most cards. If you would like any more information about Stampin Up products, please feel free to email me at

I also used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set from Stampin Up for this card, and I am loving my new Hero Arts Ombre Ink Pads.

It’s Saleabration Time!

Hello! It’s time for me to have a wee blogging catch up with a few cards I have made in the past couple of weeks. I am a bit behind as it was my birthday during the week and we managed to sneak a couple of lovely relaxing nights away for the first time in almost a year, it really was bliss and very much needed.

It is also Saleabration time at Stampin Up! I used the “Hello” stamp set to make this card for a friend.

1 Measure a piece of Black card to be 5.75x 3.75″, and rub over it with an anti static bag.

2 Using Versa Mark ink, ink up the stamps you are using and stamp them onto the black.

3 Cover with embossing powder, shake off the excess and heat from behind with a heat gun.

4 Stick down your black layer, and add some neon dots as accents.

Art Deco Feather Card

Hello, can you believe it is only 12 days until Christmas? Where has this month gone?

I have a few friends birthdays during December so it is always nice to take a break from Christmas cards and orders to have a wee play with stamps and papers.

I made this card for an amazing friend who is one classy lady and is always there for me!

First Christmas Card Of The Year!

Happy first of November, can you believe it is Christmas next month? I really can’t so I thought I should try and get a start on my cards.

I got some lovely new dies from Stampin Up and have been looking forward to playing with them, I love this set because it can be used all year long, well except for the sleigh one! They are also great for using up scraps of paper, I have loads of wee strips of white pearlised paper which is just perfect for this card.

1 Get a 6×6 card blank and measure up a white layer for it. Then cut out a square where your snow scene will be visible through.

2 Measure a piece of white card to use as your picture, I measured out about 4×4″. I used a piece of white linen card to add some texture.

3 Pick your distress colours, I used Chipped Sapphire and Tumbled Glass and blended them across the square.

4 Sprinkle some Frantage or white embossing powder across the inked card, I use a teeny dry paintbrush to pick up the powder and tap the brush to get it off and scattered. Heat from behind to melt it.

5 Die cut which ever strips you would like, I went for one of each. I then gently rubbed the sponge applicator from my Tumbled Glass over the sleigh just to highlight it. The stick them down.

6 Stick down the “picture”, then the frame on top and you had a card.

I am really loving crafting again, I forgot how much fun it is, even when your fingers are all blue and you resemble a rather large smurf!
