Hugs for your birthday

I love this kaleidoscope die from Catherine Pooler - especially over an alcohol ink on yupo background!
I added a sentiment using dies from Pink and Main, and a stamp from Simon Says Stamp.

Valentine bouquet

Is it just me, or do these flowers look like a heart when they're all coloured in the same colour? (Or have I just missed this for every other card I have made with this stamp?


I used the Blooming Bunch stamp set from Studio Katia, along with Zig markers, and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

Embossed Yupo

I watched a video from Jennifer McGuire yesterday. She made over 20 cards, and aimed to use her supplies in ways that aren't immediately obvious. She used embossing folders and mentioned that they are underused. And a little light went off in my head that I hadn't used my Geometric Next Level embossing folders from We R Memory Keepers nearly as much as I should have. The other thing that made another light go off in my head was when Jennifer said that we should think outside the square and try to think about our supplies in different ways. She also has a drawer of partially completed pieces, scraps, leftovers - I have a folder. I pulled out the folder, and right on top was a piece of Yupo with alcohol inks on it. The rest is history.
I posted a video of the yupo piece on Instagram yesterday, and it was quite popular, so I had to make a card from the piece!


The friend die is from Studio Katia, and the sentiment stamp is from Simon Says Stamp. The thing I like most about this card is that it is touchy feely.

Rainbow bouquet


I was in dire need of a rainbow, so I made my own.


I used a floral bouquet stamp from Studio Katia, and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

Rainbow on yupo

I made a yupo rainbow and posted it on Instagram yesterday, and I had a few comments asking about how I made it, so I decided to make a video.


I used Tim Holtz Ranger alcohol inks on Yupo. The dies are from Altenew and Simon Says Stamp, and the sentiment stamp is from Birch Press Design.


And here's the video!

Happy birthday flowers


A very girly girl birthday card today!

Happy birthday, friend

I made this card on the same day I made a Valentine's Day card that I posted a couple of weeks ago. I used exactly the same technique, just different colours and a different sentiment.
Thee flowers are from Altenew, the die is from CAS-ual Fridays, and the stamped sentient is from Simon Says Stamp.

Crafter's Choice at A Blog Named Hero

I'm still on a kick to make birthday cards - I never have enough!

I used the Leafy Vines stamp to remove alcohol ink from a yupo panel using alcohol lift ink. I then added a sentiment white embossed on vellum.
