Welcome to my Blog

Hello and Welcome to my Blog I am so glad you found me. Here you will find a mixture of cards made from digital sheets purchased from the Craftsuprint website, cards made from rubber stamps and other bits and pieces. I got into cardmaking a few years ago by going to a class, then I got the bug. The thing I really like about crafting is that you are constantly learning so you never get bored. Please feel free to follow my Blog and you are most welcome to leave a comment.

Happy Birthday Joyce

Hello Everyone, I thought I would share the card I made for my sister-in-law for her 80th birthday, she is a lovely person and is always cheerful with a very uplifting voice. We are all going out for a rather long lunch and as we are all spread around different counties it will be great to catch up. 

I used a digital sheet designed by Janet Briggs you can view more of her work here 


This design comes as a kit and I printed all the sheets using glossy photo paper except for the pocket and the insert which I printed onto matt photo paper, then cut out all the pieces and shaped all the elements and decoupaged using pinflair glue gel. To finish I added lots of gems, glitter touches and a greeting. The name of the sheet used is Square Scallop Pocket Delicate Roses Mini Kit & Decoupage


I cut out some silver numbers three times and stuck them altogether to give the numbers a 3D effect, the dies are from the Robert Adams collection of  All Occasion Dies and finished with glitter touches and lots of gems. 


As Joyce wanted cash as a present I made up an envelope by using the Tonic Studios Sweet Nothing dies such a useful set of dies ideal for gift cards. Hope you like it and please feel free to leave me a comment.
