Hello Stranger!

It has been a while(again) I am slowly getting or attempting to get back into a crafty routine, which is proving easier said than done.

I made this card a while ago for a friend to give to relatives, the wee baby has a Silver Cross pram and the card was to reflect that.

I used lots of Stix2 products including the card blank, 3d Foam, double sided tape and card stock.

I hope you like the card, I promise I will try and post more often.

Planner Bookmark

Hello again! It’s been a busy couple of days and I would love to share my latest make with Stix2 products.

I am absolutely loving my planner and always looking for new wee things to help my awful memory! I decided to make a reusable weekly bookmark using the Bookmarks and Bookmark Sleeves. I picked out some stamp sets that I thought would be helpful and got to work.

I am really delighted with the results and hope you like them too.

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

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 domesticgoddesscrafts@gmail.com

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.

Pretty Butterflies

Hello, today I am sharing a birthday card I made for one of my crafty besties who absolutely loves greens.

I thought I would have a play with the gorgeous new Painted Butterflies Stamps from Altenew that I got when the team at CraftStash.co.uk had a great special offer on.

1 Measure out a piece of white card 5″x3″ and stamp your butterflies in the lightest shade you are using.
2  Using the darker shade stamp the outline of the butterflies over the lighter shade.
3 Apply DST to the back of your piece of card and place it onto some green card, using a perfect layers ruler trim the paper down to create a border.
4  Put lots of 3d foam on the back of your green card and place it on the card.
5 Stamp your sentiment et voila!

Shark Attack!

Hello, I was recently asked to make a card for a guy who is going swimming with a great white shark later in the year. The card was from his kids so I didn’t want to make the shark too scary.

I used my Cameo and made this card, which the recipient loved.
