Coral birthday

 I made this card recently for my choir's conductor, Jan - Happy birthday, Jan! 

I used a floral stamp from an Altenew/Pink Fresh Studio collab set, and a text background set from Hero Arts. I stamped the background in white ink over a panel of ink blending (using Catherine Pooler Inks.) The sentiment is from a Studio Katia set.

Autumnal birthday card

 Today, I'm sharing a simple masculine birthday card for Paper Rose Studio.


I made an autumnal pattern using leaves from Leaf and Element Builder, with a range of ink colours. I finished with a printed sentiment from All Occasions Sentiment Sheets.

Alcohol ink and a cover plate

 I made this card months ago - I keep forgetting to blog cards I've made!


The cover plate die is from a company that is no longer around (Lil' Inkers Designs) and the hello die from Pink and Main is, sadly, discontinued.

Icicles shaker card for Picket Fence Studios - and a video!

 Today, I'm sharing a card for Picket Fence Studios - and I made a video! (Yes, it's a shaker card, and I made a video - hell should be freezing over any time now! LOL!). 


 Here's a video of how I made this card (warning, it's prettier on the outside than it is on the inside! LOL!)

Floral happy birthday for Paper Rose

 Today, I'm sharing a floral birthday card.


I stamped the Big Bloom clear stamp set in copic safe black ink onto white cardstock twice. I coloured them in Copic markers, and I then cut a piece of black cardstock to be 1/4 inch narrower than my card front. I adhered the  flowers around the edge of the black panel, trimmed the excess, and them added the off cuts to the other corners. I adhered the completed panel to a white card base, and added the Happy Birthday Chunky layered die cut in the centre, popped up on some foam adhesive.
