Regal Poppies

One of my favourite things about making cards is watercolouring stamped images with ink. I used my aqua painter and stamp pad ink to colour these gorgeous poppies. I love how when you watercolour with Elegant Eggplant it starts to break down and you get a touch of blue appearing in your ink.



Happy Anniversary Card

It's our 5th Anniversary today so made this card for Dave last night. I wanted it represent love but not be too girly. Glimmer paper never fails to make a card shine. This is my first time using the red one, and it looks lovely with real red ink.

Shadow Box

I found this lovely shadow box today while looking for a frame to make a present for a 7 year old for tomorrow. I was able to handmake flowers from various dies and punches and they sit beautifully under the glass. The smallest flowers are from the boho blossoms punch, I love how miniature they turn out. I also used 2 sizes of scallop circle punch and one flower from the blossom party originals die. I hope Hayley likes this for her new bedroom.





Mother's Day Card with tiny boho blossom rose

I made this card yesterday for a friend who is going overseas next week and needed a card before she goes. I've made a few handmade flowers lately and really love making them. This one is a very tiny rose made using one the boho blossom punch. I love adding teeny tiny embellishments to my cards, those little finishing touches make all the difference.

Back to work

Back to work this morning after 5 days off. Had a nice restful break and got to visit the twins twice :-)
This is the other card I designed over Easter, love how it turned out. Can't believe these gorgeous colours will retire in June/July this year! I think I will have to stock up on them before they go, I haven't even begun exploring what I can do with them. Hope you all had a nice break as well and that work is kind to us all today.
