3 Birds Clearly Hand Stamped

I just love this stamps there are so many things that you can make with them. They are small enough to make a card with a scence or just on their own. So I thought that I would share another card with you.

These stamps are from Crafters Companion, I also used the flowers which are again you guessed it from Crafters Companion. To cut out the aperture I just used a spellbinder die and my Bigshot. I coloured it in using my Papermania Whisper pens.

Time to share

Hello well I thought today that I would share a card with you, the idea was given to me by my friend Jayne Davies. Jayne is a design team member for Debbi Moore Designs and we usually go to Debbi's craft day in Darlington once every month. The is a really unusual idea for a different style of Easel card and if you would like instructions how to make this then just e mail me on

To make this card I used the lovely SWALK 3 stamps from Crafters Companion

Just love these stamps

Afternoon everyone well its another grey day here in the North East but at least the snow has kept away. We went out yesterday and drove through Melsonby and the snow there was about 2 inches. Hate the white stuff hope it stays away. Thought I would post a card I have made using the 3 Birds Clearly Hand Stamped set from Crafters Companion. This is a lovely set of small stamps in their own cute little box which can be used for any occasion, I had such fun using them.

To make this card I used standard white card stock to make the easel card and for the matt and layering used gold Mirri card and some backing paper again from Crafters Companion.The flowers are yes yet again from Crafters Companion, Perfectly Pretty Petals and for the centre and easel sides I used the Candi dots from Craftwork Cards. I stamped onto white card and cut out the shape using a spellbinders die and for the grass and sky I used a Big and Juicy Vibrant Primary ink pad. I stamped the cloud separately and cut out and edged with glitter.

These stamps are beautiful

Hello everyone, thought I would share with you a card that I made using the new SWALK 3 stamps from Crafters Companion. These stamps are just adorable, but I said that about the other SWALK as well, there are so many occasions that you can use these for they are a must have. This one I made using the best teacher stamp would be nice to give as an Easter gift. I am sure any teacher would love to receive a card with this stamp on.

Just love Beatrix Potter

I just love this Beatrix Potter CD and stamp set Appleby Dappley from Crafters Companion. This is a really cute card that I made using the CD and I cut the oval frames using my Cricut. The card is also from Crafters Companion Centura Pearl and I just used clear plastic thread to hang the ovals in the middle of each aperture.

Romance is in the air

Afternoon all from a very Windy North East of England, just been told it is going to get worse tomorrow, so good excuse to stay in and craft. Thought I would post a card with a Romance theme with a difference. I used the lovely Love CD from Crafters Companion and made it into the shape of a handbag. The bead for the handle where put on with thin wire and I just used ones I have had in my stash for ages. To decorate the inside I again used papers from the Love CD and cut them out using an XCut butterfly punch, I just love this punch. The flower on the front is from the range Perfectly Pretty Petals and from Crafters Companion
