Hero Arts My Monthly Hero August kit

 This month's My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts is all about the desert. I decided to use a colour scheme that is not usually associated with the desert!

Bunny Cuppa for Paper Rose

 Today, I'm sharing a card with a cute little bunny who may or may not be over-caffeinated!

I stamped the "Perfect sized coffee" stamp in dark brown ink and coloured it with copic markers. I stamped the face of the bunny in black to give it some extra definition. I used a pale blue copic marker to draw in the gingham tablecloth, and then stamped the sentiment from "Super Day Sentiments".

Enjoy your trip for Hero Arts

When I was young, my brother owned a detailed globe of the world. It had a gold coloured base and arm, so when I saw this die from Hero Arts, I knew I had to emboss the base and arm of this globe in gold.

Friendly Flowers

 How many cards do you send just because? I've sent a lot more of them since 2020. I usually send hugs cards or hello cards, but I sometimes send just a note.

Birthday card for Paper Rose Studio

 Today, I'm sharing a birthday card using products from Paper Rose Studio.


I cut the Etched Flowers dies from white cardstock, and blended some Distress Oxide inks around the edges, before adhering the layers together. I cut a panel of paper from the Peony Garden paper pack and adhered it to the centre of a top folding white card base, adhered the flowers, then finished with a printed sentiment from Big black and white sentiments.

Santa Lane collection from Spellbinders

Spellbinders has a new release today - the Santa Lane Collection includes stickers, glitter die cuts, shaker mixes and various other Christmassy ephemera! I was lucky enough to be sent some of these products to play with, so here's some of the cards I made with them! 


This card in particular was VERY difficult to photograph, so I will post a quick reel showing these cards to Instagram - the shine will be clearer to see in the video :)
