Snowflake


Hi everyone, I've made another "Joy" card for the CAS Christmas Challenge and it seemed like a great reason to use my new snowflake die. It did cross my mind to do a bit of light inking around the edges, but I think it looks great withouts so I  just placed it over some light grey card and added the silver foiled Joy die-cut popped up on top.

One rose


Hi everyone, here is a card I made using the lovely fresh colours at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I quite like the idea of stamping a sentiment in a colour other than black.

Joy to the world


Hi everyone, I have made a card for the CAS Christmas Challenge where the theme is "Joy".

There are a few different ways I could have approached the stamped wreath. I started out using watercolour pencils, but switched to no-lline watercolour. The wreath was then die-cut and enamel dots and die-cut word added.

More sweet peas



Hi everyone, when I saw the colour choice at Rainbow Card Challenge is "fuschia" immediately I thought "sweet peas" and here is my card.

I heat embossed the sweet peas in white and coloured them with a watercolour pen. Also used some of the ink watered down to make a background.

Christmas bears



Hi everyone, I love this cute stamp set and couldn't resist making another Christmas card using the lovely cool colours line-up at CAS Watercolour Card Challenge.  My first Christmas card of 2020! I guess there's nothing like getting started early. 

I stamped, water coloured and fussy card the little bears. The background was made using brushos and water, with heat-embossed snowflakes using a stamp from the same set.
