I've been trying to finish three commissions which all had to be sent today if I was to make the deadlines - Oh Boy! And my workspace now looks like a whirlwind has been through! I'm sure…

Anyone For Ice Cream?

Fancy an Ice cream? It is Raspberry Ripple... Mmm yummy! The ice cream is one of the cute stamps from the Sweet Chocolate My Cute Stamp set available over at Make The Day Special. I might have gone a little glitter crazy on this one! The sentiment is from the same set.  So with or without the chocolate flake?

Ok – So No One Said I Had To Be Tidy

After tearing the edges of my card blank for my make on Friday, I'm now finding it very hard to go back to the straight line! I had made the topper for today's make with all the texture, Unity stamps and mass of horizontal and diagonal lines but it just would not sit right on the straight edge card blank. So I…

Making It Clean And Simple – Notes On Designing

I don't know about you guys but I think that clean and simple (aka CAS) is quite tough to do. Actual there are two things I find hard to do and that is the highly embellished designs and the clean and simple designs.

I've used the Layers Of Colour Joyful Noise which is back in stock over at Make The Day Special. I've added colour using a mask to a background that I textured using the PVA…

Inky For You

Been getting a bit inky with my Make The Day Special and {Ippity} Inspiration stamps this week. This make is part of a series of ideas based around an ATC I did for the Idea Gallery in the Craft Stamper recently. I kinda liked it so thought I would explore the design a bit more and on a bigger scale! The grass is from…

Are You Crazy About Sardine Tin Art?

I am! Ok so you guys are going to start thinking that I have some sort of Sardine Tin obsession - it is just coincidence - honest! But you got to admit it Sardine tins are perfect size for a little bit of altering into art? Don't you think? I've recycled this tin with a Spring theme and using a variety of…
