Hi Everyone, I am struggling to come up with ideas for my craft club and after looking online I saw iris folding, last week my cards were a little too easy, so I looked for easy, taking a little time? It's placing paper onto lines I thought, that could be OK, so I cut all the papers needed and more, then printed out a free pattern I got online. I cut the tree shape out of card, all using my digital die cutting machine, when cutting lots, it's a real boon for me.

Hi Everyone, Well! what weather we are having, rain rain and more rain. I'm afraid this weather makes me not want to do anything, however I did a card while the sun the was shining a few days ago.
I saw a stamp on someone's blog and now can't remember where I saw it, sorry! I had to buy it, as it reminded me of a clover and a card I did a long while ago. I had bought some Kraft ready made cards for Christmas cards, (at least an idea, that doesn't seem to be working out) but, I stamped this around the card and then stamped the sentiment, I decided to colour the flowers and the leaves with DI's, not that it shows up well, but enough I thought.

Hi Everyone, I'm stamping again. I blended the background, and then stamped with blue, however I had to stamp twice and just moved the card, I hate waste! so I used some water and blended the most obvious parts, I think it's worked? You will be my judge!
I also splashed some water over the whole card and added clear glaze in spots, all added to a navy card base and ribbon added. For all the faffing around I did on the card, I think it's OK. Maybe?

Hi Everyone, my card today is for my Great Great Niece Dorothy, who is 4 years old and such a little lady, that I had to make something feminine for her.
I had a cut file from Lori Whitlock that I used as a pattern for the pop up card. I then went looking for paper and images to use. Luckily I have lots to choose from!
All are print and cut with extra layers on my digital die cutting machine. I had so much fun designing this for Dorothy. I started with looking for a mermaid and found a paper with lots on. I chose one and copied it from the paper in Photoshop. However I also had a digital stamp I thought I could use, indecision had me cut both out, but I chose the already coloured image. Call me lazy?
This is the layout of my images, I wasn't sure which mermaid to use, so I printed both and decided on the already coloured image. the digital image is by Paper Nest Dolls
