Card using Tim Holtz Mixed Media die and Altnew stamps


This card was very quick to make

I used my Tim Holtz Mixed Media die, from Sizzix, to cut a pattern into the card top, exposing a complimentary patterned paper.
I created the topper using Altnew layering stamps and embellished with a butterfly which I coloured with Promarkers then dipped into UTEE to give it shine

Hope you like it

A birthday card for a two year old

Very soon it will be my  granddaughter's second birthday.
How time flies, it seems like she only arrived yesterday!
This is the card I made for her

I used some patterned paper on a pink card base, then used a Crazy bird image, which I coloured with Promarkers and added as a slider.
I am happy with it -  I hope it will amuse her.

A simple Anniversary card

My next card is an anniversary card which I made using a variety of Sizzix dies, from Tim Holtz, and cream and kraft card.

I do like the combination of kraft and cream card, and this was so easy because the dies did all the work for me - simple

All for now

Clean and simple floral card with subtle colouring


I can't seem to decide if I prefer a clean and simple style of card (CAS) or one that is more complex.  This post features one of the CAS types which is very quick to make - I am really happy with this.

The stamp is called magnolia and is from Chocolate Baroque .  I stamped the image with grey ink and simply coloured it with a pale pink Promarker.  Then I pulled the colour into the paler areas with a blender pen.

I also experimented with a darker shade of pink -- and now I can't decide which I prefer.

Hope you like these, which is your favourite?
