Rudolph


Hello crafters! I have a silly Rudolph Christmas card today.

This is my first time using the Simon Says Stamp Picture Book Deer die. He's such a cutie with his jaunty scarf.

I die cut Rudolph from a variety of cardstock and adhered him on top of a background that I inked with Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron.


For a little fun I added pompoms onto his antlers and gave Rudolph some googly eyes.

I'm submitting this card for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, Happy Holidays, here and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Christmas, here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Galaxy Christmas


 Hello crafters! Today I have a Christmas card with a galaxy sky background!

I used my Distress Inks to create a night sky to showcase Poppystamps Simple Lantern Oval die with a little wintry scene.


It was my first time making a galaxy sky and it was a lot of fun getting inky!

Lovely Leaves


Hello crafters! Today I have a card for the Altenew October Inspiration Challenge, which is a photo challenge of the pic below.


I used my brand new Altenew Leaf Mix Dies to create the card. Love all the leafy options in this set. I coloured a bunch of glossy card stock with alcohol inks in a variety of colours and die cut my leaves from them and added them to a kraft card base that was flicked with metallic gold paint. The sentiment is from the older but a fave Label Love stamp set.

MFT Card Design Superstar: Clean & Simple


I managed to squeeze in some crafty time and made a card for the annual MFT Card Design Superstar Contest. As it happens I just received the new MFT Holly Jolly Cardinals dies and wanted to use them for my card. Love these cutie birds.


I paper pieced my bird and decided I didn't want it to be a holiday bird so instead of using the fuzzy trim for the hat I used some small dies in the set and made them into little flowers and used them for the trim on the hat.

I used the MFT Rainbow Whimsy die with gold and silver sparkle paper and stamped the sentiment from the older MFT set Peaceful Wildflowers. I also did a bit of inking behind the bird with Distress Ink.

This was such a fun card to make and can't wait to send it to a crafty friend!

Have a great day!

Floral Thanks

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer! Today I have a card featuring Poppystamps stamps, patterned paper and an embossing folder.


I wanted to use some patterned paper for the wild rose image and really liked how different the black paper with colourful flowers and leaves looked with white heat embossing. It's a little unexpected I think.

To make this simple card a little more interesting I added a bright pink panel that was embossed for some texture and visual interest.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
