Bird Ballad Frame

I want to share something with you today that I made some time ago now, almost as soon as the last annual catalogue came out I think. The Bird Ballad suite was one of my first purchases, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on every single item in the suite, they all just co-ordinate so beautifully together. The stamps are simply gorgeous and the papers…. well, I am lost for words. I love making samplers, and really enjoyed this one, on a canvas frame. The frame itself is 10″ x 8″, to give you an idea of size. Sadly, […]

Positive Thoughts…

This stamp set really called to me when I made this card on Saturday. I wanted to use fairly bright but soft colours and lots of layering, I am really starting to enjoy these more ‘fussy’ cards. The stamp set has got co-ordinating dies which have been available and ‘may’ be available again soon but everything can be fussy cut too, if you are in to that kind of thing! I’m not going to give you a full step by step today, but look closely and you will see some of the detail I have added. I have used every […]

How to Make a Mother’s Day Card using the Daisy Lane stamp set…

Mother’s Day is fast approaching (UPDATE: 14th March 2021) so I thought I would show you how to make a Mother’s Day card to go along with the wreath that I made in my last post. Haven’t seen it? Click the link to see my Spring Wreath. I sadly lost my Mum to Motor Neurone Disease in 2015 and have found it really difficult to see or promote these cards the last few years, but things do get easier with time, as they say. I will always miss her though and it makes me sad that she will never see […]

Spring Wreath…

I know it doesn’t yet feel like spring has sprung but I wanted to make something bright and cheerful so that when the sun is hiding I can look at this and remind myself that brighter days are just around the corner. I have not used any stamps for this project, just two punches are all that you need to make this gorgeous piece of home decor. I have used the medium daisy punch and the leaf punch (both £15), punching out 36 daisies from Whisper White card and about 30 leaves from Pear Pizzazz card. To get colour onto […]
