Paper Players PP544 Challenge

After a gap I’ve had chance to enter a card to the Paper Players Challenge this week. The theme is ‘Signs of Summer’ so I went for cute, colourful and flowery.

Paper Players Challenge PP536

The week the Paper Players had a colour challenge. The colours chosen were quite masculine so I moved away from my usual designs and produced a new home card. I don’t know anyone who is moving house at the moment but I’m sure I will do before too long. The house dies are from a…

Paper Players Challenge PP535

I created this card for the Paper Players Springtime Challenge. I used layering stamps from Crafters Companion and added some Stickles for extra sparkle. I felt it fitted the theme really well, a splash of colour to welcome spring. It was made as a notecard and I know exactly who I will send it to.

Another Chloe Stampalong

Chloe Endean has restarted her Stampalongs and last week did the first one with her wonderful new sugared collection. It is such a pretty collection and I couldn’t resist buying it all. In her instructions she had said to use pearl card but as I didn’t have pearl card in the right colour I used…

Birthday Card

Another birthday card using products from Chloe’s Creative Cards. This time I haven’t gone for the usual 8 x 8 card as these don’t fit in our local letterbox. I’ll be able to post this size with a ‘large’ stamp. The card didn’t take too long to make. I had the flowers and foliage left…

Stencilling and Embossing

I love the effect that has been produced, even though this wasn’t the original intention. What they call a…

Football Supporter Card

Hello again. It’s absolutely ages since I’ve posted on here, don’t know where all the time goes. There always seems to be so much else I want to do and to be honest a lot of that involves crafting. This card may look simple but it’s a design I’ve adapted several times to make cards…

Chloe Stampalong 9

I think this has been my favourite Stampalong so far. All the details for making this card can be found on Chloe’s blog. The card uses the new Clematis stamps and one of the new backgrounds. Of course, when buying, I couldn’t resist the ‘I need it all!’ option. I’ve deviated from the instructions a…

Butterflies – My New Stamp

The lockdown means more time on my hands so I have finally got to posting my first entry, hope you like it. You may realise I have a thing about cards with butterflies! I bought this butterfly stamp at the Farnborough Craft Show in February and I just love it. I stamped onto Crafter’s Companion…
