{Dove of Peace stamp - Grungy style}

Ok, so this card was a bit of an experiment, so instead of filming the making of it I've had to explain the steps. I love how it turned out, and it was fun raiding my stash of stamps to find patterns for the background, they included... Everything Eleanor, Perpetual Birthday Calendar, Butterfly Basics, Kinda Eclectic, Gorgeous Grunge and Dove of Peace

This stamp is so pretty and lovely to work with.  If you love spending some time colouring in, you'll love the detail on it.  It's available on wood mount and has a lovely Bible verse sentiment on it too, I have actually cut the sentiment and the dove apart and mounted just the dove so I can use the two elements separately. 

I'm loving the new Fine Tip Glue Pen. It's great for adding a glossy accent to detailed stamps. It's going to be available from Sept 1st.

-{Banner masked Christmas card}-

I've been enjoying a few days of experimenting and trying to come up with the new ideas and techniques to show you.

Here is a couple of cards I've made with the Hello December 2015 stamp set (available from 1st September).


I was inspired my fellow instagrammer Keren's stunning card here...

So... OSWW... I've done another set of tags, because they're just easy and so useful to have a stash of!



Here are some more pics...

-{Making cards from scraps}-

Had a tidy and decided to make some cards with some of the bits I found! 


I tried to be really strict and only use items found on my craft table, it's suprising sometimes what you can make without really planning it too much, enjoy!

-{One Sheet Wonder Wednesday}- Week 14 Butterfly box


Today's OSWW features how to make a custom inkpad, and the imperial measurements to make the triangle box.  I have used Kinda Eclectic, Papillion Potpourri and Gorgeous Grunge.

I realised after I had made the video I should have given simpler measurements, so here they are if you would like them...

Cut the paper into a 7" x 10.5" rectangle, score down length ways at 3.25"
After stamping, cut the rectangle into three at 3.25"
Mark the middle of the rectangle at top and bottom, then score the triangle as shown in the video.
Hope that makes sense, please contact me if you need further clarification.


Here is an extra video showing what else you can make...

-{Birthday Bunting for a Special Lady}-

It was my Mother in Law's Birthday this last week, I had to send her card and present off early as we wouldn't get to see her on the day.  I wanted to make her something special as it was a "big" one"

This is what I made, sorry I have no photos as I forgot to take any before I sent it...
