A couple of recent cards

Howdy! Hope your having a good start to the weekend, it’s been quite hot here in the U.K. which has been lovely. 

Here’s a few cards I made recently 

I have started using my copic markers a bit more, which has been fun. Although I still love using watercoloring too I just really love the bright colours you get with markers. 

Have a lovely weekend!!!

Your Next Stamp Feature Day


Its feature day at Your Next Stamp and we are creating a card that is inspired by a famous painting.  You can also win a stamp set of your choice by leaving a comment here on the YNS blog.

I thought about a famous painting and there is so many to choose from but I decided to go with Van Gough starry night over:


I really loved the night time theme with all the pretty stars and it inspired me to make this card:


I used the gorgeous stamp set Fairytale Friends and I  made the night sky with distress ink. I am seriously in love with this stamp set.

Recent cards

Hi! So today I’m sharing some of my recent cards that I made over the past few weeks, I really love making shaker cards and I just think they would make someone smile so it’s well worth taking the time to create them.

This monster has to be the most adorable monster look at the glasses 😍 it’s a digital stamp by 2cuteink and Heidi has some lovely designs.

I made this card for my daughters birthday which she loved. Shaker cards are a big hit with young children. And older kids too 😉

This is my “first” cactus card they seem really popular right now and I coloured them with copic markers and used a background stamp for the background. I added some vellum too. 

Another copic coloured stamp, this kangaroo is so sweet and I was going to make an Easter card with it but just ran out of time so this is sitting in a box in my craft room for another day…..but hey that’s life we sometimes find it really hard to fit everything in and I’m learning not to get stressed about it. Poor kangaroo…..

This monkey was coloured in with my derwent inktense pencils I haven’t used these in so long but I actually enjoyed working with them again, and that’s what crafting is all about. 

I will be back soon and hopefully I would of got a few more pages done of my project life album 🙂


Sweet baby card

Hi! I found this little bunny stamp from your next stamp it’s so sweet for a baby card. I used a diagonal background stamp for the background and used a scallop die cut to put under the burlap.

I coloured in the bunny with distress ink and then I heat embossed the greeting.

Hope you like it!
