Just for you

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJust for you – An A5 card using papers from the Craftwork Cards “Al Fresco” pad. It is such pretty, bright pad – so cheerful. I have used parts of several papers to mat and layer on this card to continues the cycling theme that has been a major part of our summer this year. The “Tour De France” starting in Yorkshire this year has given everyone a great sense of community here, along with a renewed interest in cycling. We have had a wonderful summer this year, and while it is still here, I’m grabbing it with both hands x

Back in 5 Minutes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA 6 x 6 card using some JOFY stamps on some watered Distress Ink background. I’ve painted in the flowers with Salty Ocean and Mustard Seed distress inks using a water brush. The sentiment is from Indigo Blu – only I think it would be more apt for me to say – “out of my mind …. never coming back”. I edged the topper with Salty Ocean distress ink and then I’ve mounted the topper up on mats and layers of Turquoise blue and basket weave yellow.. Thank you for taking the time to look and I hope you like it x

Pink Roses, Blue Butterflies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA 6 x 6 tent card made using the Graphic 45 “Botanical Tea” Collection. I’ve distressed it a little by roughing round the edges as this collection can be used to make both very contemporary or vintage style cards. The colours in this collection are lovely and there is a lot of different subjects within the collection to make many different types and styles of card. I added a little Stickles to the rose on the topper for a bit of sparkle. Hope you like it x

Time for Tea



A 6 x 6 card made at a recent Make and Take at a Craftwork Cards event in Leeds.

I love the colours in this collection – they all co-ordinate beautifully and are so refreshing in this heat. I love making these flowers – so simple, but so effective. Hope you like it x

Pretty in Pink

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI have used an Aspire Crafts dekromount tag for the base, onto which I have stenciled with texture paste. I added Micro beads to the texture paste before I stenciled it on. This makes the end result quite different to texture paste on its own. After it was dry, I have brushed over the whole tag with 3 different distress inks – Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserve – before highlighting the flowers with a pearl Brillance pad. I added a vellum die-cut butterfly which has been brushed with matching distress inks, and gems. To finish I stamped the “Create” stamp from Graphic 45 and added ribbon and a sparkly button X

Loving Hearts

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHere are 3 MDF heart tag hangings that I have decorated with Craftwork Cards papers. I have used the “Time Flies” Collection for the middle heart, and the “Vintage Boho” Collection for the other 2 hearts. Decorating¬† MDF shapes and cabinets are one of my favourite pastimes, and I can lose myself for several hours becoming completely absorbed in it. I’m sure that many other crafters experience the same when they are enjoying themselves with a project. Hope you like them x

A Wonderful Day

An MDF tag I decorated a while back. Not sure where the papers are from, but I have it in my craft room. The sentiment makes me feel good and reminds me to be cheerful whatever the weather xOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
