Welcome Precious Twins

When I saw spotted this amazing shutter card by Ptit Ange over on Mes P'tit Ciseaux, I knew I had to make one.

Here is my take for my friend's daughter who has just had the sweetest twin boys. I used my NBUS Stampin' Up Sweet Baby set.






Here it is in action …

Everything's Beachy! Take 2

This is my second take with the Everything's Beachy set. (See first take HERE)

I wondered what it would look like from the beach looking towards the sea. Changed up the colours a little too.




What do you think? Do they both work?

Everything's Beachy! Take 1

Living on a tropical island, it was a must to get Ellen Hutson's Everything's Beachy stamp set. I used the man with surf boards on this card.

Now it's the ladies' turn!

First on the beach (inspired by Carissa Wiley's card) but I went with the beach colours of beach sand and turquoise sea. I added the white edge of the waves with a gel pen.


This view is more from the sea towards the beach.


I wondered what it would look like from the beach looking towards the sea ... I'll do another card soon.

With Sympathy

 I think it's a good idea to make a selection of sympathy cards so that when you need one, you can choose one from your stash.

I hesitated about distressing a soft blue in the window, but in the end thought I'd keep it more CAS. What do you think?

Super CAS one layer

I gave the challenge of "one of 9 rectangles" quite some thought as I didn't want my butterfly to look trapped in a square. So I decided it should go off the edge.

Ink & Spritz 2

This time I'm mixing the ink and spritz background with my new Stampin' Up flowers (Flowers of Friendship) coloured with Copics. I used Distress Oxides (Twisted Citron & Tumbled Glass) on the background paint splatter stamps.

Airbrushed Flowers Take 1

Pairing up the Airbrushed flowers with the Window Slats embossing folder. I kept the outline ink in the same colour tones as the flowers and leaves.

Spring Chicken

I have so many flower stamps (which I love) but these days, I'm also looking to see if I can make cards that bring a smile. We so need more smiles and laughter in these difficult times.

This Hey Chick set is such fun ... and I've taken artistic license with the colours. I didn't have Birthday Chicken set, so I typed up and printed my sentiment before die-cutting the sign.
