Gorjuss red headed twins

I was asked to make two cards as an order for a lady who has twin girls both who have the most amazing red hair. So I chose one of the gorjuss stamp sets and stamped twice and the. Coloured using spectrum noir alchohol markers and pencils. This was a great fun card to make and she was absolutely delighted

Butterfly thinlets layering card

This fab thinlets die from Stampin up is gorgeous and there are so many ways to use this die.
Today I have mounted one on shimmer paper and then embossed the tiny one in copper added a button and some twine for added depth and texture.

Give us a shout if you would like one made. This was a customer order for a sisters birthday.

Father's Day card

I have been asked to make a Father's Day card that was simple and modern with a bit of sparkle. This customer did not want old fashioned with boats, golf, etc and I thought about it and she was quite right that there are so many cards for guys which are quite frankly dated.  So this is the card I made. She was absolutely delighted. If you would like one made then just give me a shout as there is still a couple of weeks to go.

Everybody loves butterflies

Out of all the cards I make. Butterflies are by far the most popular. I think it is probably the delicacy no gorgeous colours that attract people to them. I always remember the old film with Steve McQueen Papillon and how the film was about freedom and never giving up however hard the journey may be.

I have been making some more commissions for customers and was requested to make a butterfly card for someone who wanted shimmer and sparkle, so this is what I came up with
With a row of rhinestone added for that finishing bit of sparkle.

If you would like a special card made then please just get in touch.

Pollyanna Pickering new photopolymer stamps

I have recently received the new Polyanna Pickering photopolymer stamps and they are absolutely brilliant.  The quality of these stamps is stunning and the images are exactly as if Polyanna had hand drawn each one herself.  I love the fact that with stamps you can create your own designs and cards although little fleabag the hedgehog just looks perfect on his own with just a touch of colour.

Take a look and see what you think and if you would like one of the cards handmade by myself then just drop me a line.

Basques for a burlesque party

I have a customer who is having a burlesque party and wanted a basque theme invite so I have made two cards one in blue with a bit of blingy sparkle and the other in red and black.

Be fun to see which one she chooses but was great fun making them.

As always just get in touch if you want something special made.
