Just right for Wimbledon. A strawberry card

I recently bought the latest issue of Simply cards and papercraft which had a free die and stamps with it.

This is the card I made using the free gifts.

The die is a corner die, which I cut out 4 times then stuck onto the green background.

I coloured the die with Promarkers,  then added glossy accents to the fruits.

This is a little different for me, but I really enjoyed making this, hope you like it

A Father's day card using Tim Holtz Crazy Dog stamps and dies

Just a quick post today to show you this Father's day card.

I stamped the dog onto corrugated card, then cut it with it's die and coloured with distress inks.

The die set also has dies to cut out the dog's eyes, nose and collar, so I cut these from plain card, glued them into place before colouring with Promarkers and adding glossy accents.

I hope this gives you another way to use the stamps and dies

All for now, Pat

Crazy Bird Happy Anniversary card


Today I would like to share an anniversary card which I recently made for friends

I found some paper in my stash that was ideal for the background.  After matting it onto a card blank I simply cut a white frame, stamped a sentiment on it then positioned it onto the card with foam pads.

Then I used a Tim Holtz Crazy Bird stamp from Stampers Anonymous, cut it out with it's matching Sizzix die and coloured it with Promarkers.

I placed the bird as if he/she was looking through the frame, then added a hat (also from Stamped a Anonymous Crazy Accessories set)

I finished by stamping the hearts, from the Crazy Accessories set, coloured them with Promarkers,  and applied Glossy Accents to make them stand out.

Hope you like this, thank you for visiting

A sunny Crazy Dog birthday card

Today I decided to stamp and die cut a Crazy Dog image onto craft card.

The air balloon and glasses were from the Sizzix Rainy Days die set, and the dotty card is from my stash.

Let's hope we get some sun soon here in the UK

Bright card using Tim Holtz mixed media die from Sizzix


I began this card several weeks ago but had put it to one side until I could decide how to finish it.

I am quite pleased with the result.

The background card was made by dissolving Brusho crystals in water and spraying onto white card - I used red and yellow.

I cut into the card using the Sizzix mixed media die by Tim Holtz, then sat it onto a black mat.

Once embellished with flowers , leaves and a sentiment I added a couple of orange stones.

Hope you like this

Robot birthday card

Hi, here is a card that is very different to any I have made before.

This is a card I made for my grandson's birthday.

The background centre portion is from a sheet of card which I sprayed with Brusho crystals, and the robots have been cut in Engraving Art card then lightly sanded back to reveal its copper core.

Very different for me, hope you like it

Tank you for visiting

Crazy Dog birthday card

Hi, I was really happy this card turned out so well.  It began with some scrap paper from my stash and just evolved into this super cute card - I hope you agree.

The dog stamp is one of Tim Holtz's Crazy Dogs by Stampers Anonymous, which I cut out with it's matching Sizzix die.  I had to cut around the dog's front legs so he would appear to be standing through the black frame.

I finished with a couple of sequins and a wrapped present from Tim's Crazy Accessories stamp, also by Stampers Anonymous- which I had to fussy cut as I do not have the matching Sizzix die.

Hope you like this

Come back soon
