Caroling Snowmen

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas with the Cuties and the theme this month is Favourite Festive Digi.

I used the fun  Caroling Snowman image from our sponsor Paper Nest Dolls to create my card.


My inspiration came from a card I saw on Pinterest, of course I can't find it again now!  I coloured my snowman family with a combination of ProMarkers and Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens before cutting them out with my Sue Wilson Pierced Ovals dies.


I printed some Pink Petticoat snowflake papers onto Kraft card stock and stamped a Lawn Fawn Sentiment.  The snowflake embellishments are a Clearly Besotted Snowflake die.


Make sure you pop over to the Christmas with the Cuties challenge blog and take a look at the Design Team inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Favourite Festive Digi challenge.

Let's Party

This is the second of the beginner Z-fold cards that I created for this months Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine. I was commission to produce a Masterclass on making Z-fold cards.


I used the Trimcraft Make a Wish 12” x 12” Paper Pad for all of the cards in the series, for this one I added a die cut sentiment and stamped sentiment from the Crafter’s Companion Sara Davies Birthday Party Signature Collection.


These cards really are quite simple to create, I produced a step by step guide for the magazine, make sure you check it out.

Delight in the Beauty

This is the third card in a series of four that I created for the July edition of Making Cards Magazine, I used the beautiful Petals & Parasols Collection from NitWit Collections.


I printed the topper several times so that I could fussy cut lots of decoupage layers.


The only things that I used that are not part of the Petals and Parasols collection were a couple of very old dies.

Floral Lattice

This is the third of six cards that I have published in this months Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine. I was commission to create a Masterclass on making Z-fold cards.

This is the second of the intermediate designs.


I used the Trimcraft Make a Wish 12” x 12” Paper Pad along with some dies from a couple of Sara Davies Signature Collections. The pink flowers are a Joy Crafts Stamp, I stamped them with pink ink and fussy cut them.



I really enjoyed making these cards, it's not something that I normally do - they are certainly a challenge to photograph.

Quick Cards Made Easy Bonus Papers

Have you picked up a copy of the new Quick Cards Made Easy magazine, there are some super bonus papers in this months edition.  I was invited to join the Reader Design team this month and was sent the papers in advance.  These are not the cards that I made for the actual magazine, these are a couple of extras that I created - I don't know if my card is in the magazine or on the website, I haven't managed to get hold of a copy yet!.


There are seven lovely picnic themed papers and a selection of sentiments.


All I have added is some pink card stock, everything else is from the bonus papers.


On this card I just stamped and fussy cut some additional flowers.


Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated - please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.

Elegance is ...

This is another of my cards that were published in the July edition of Making Cards Magazine, I created four cards using the beautiful Petals & Parasols Collection from NitWit Collections.


I think you could be seeing a lot more of these papers in the future, they are one of my favourites from NitWit Collections.


As usual I have added a decoupage layer, I kept this card quite simple though - I was trying to achieve an elegant design.


Thank you for popping in today.
