Blank: Mini Gorjuss girls

Another catch-up post; these cards were originally made between February 13th and 22nd as part of the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. Earlier this year Santoro came out with mini versions of their Gorjuss girls and my other half picked up a bunch of them for me. I decided to make a selection of blank… Continue reading Blank: Mini Gorjuss girls

Hello: Bunny with gift

Another catch-up post; this card was originally made on February 4th as part of the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. I am slowly working through my backlog of digi stamps and using them to experiment with different mediums. This is my first proper attempt at colouring with Stabilo markers. How: I wish prints from… Continue reading Hello: Bunny with gift

Thinking of you: Artist Mae

Another catch-up post; this card was originally made on February 12th as part of the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. This is the coloured pencil version of my "colouring on kraft" trial. I find pencils to be physically much harder work than Copics, but I do like the results so I shall persevere, occasionally...… Continue reading Thinking of you: Artist Mae

Be original: artist Mae

Another catch-up post; this card was originally made on February 9th as part of the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. I've seen people colouring on kraft card with both Copics and coloured pencils, but it's not something I've tried much. I thought that the colouring challenge was a good opportunity to test both mediums… Continue reading Be original: artist Mae

Blank: Mouse with drink

Another month, another cute digi stamp for Gerda Steiner’s progressive challenge. This time it’s a little mouse with a very tall glass, looking like he belongs on a hot beach; so that’s where I put him. Checking back, I realised that I've been taking part in this challenge for a year now! How: The mouse… Continue reading Blank: Mouse with drink

Birthday: Butterflies and flowers

Another catch-up post; this card was originally made on February 1st on the first day of the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. I couldn't share it then though, as the person it was made for also follows me on Instagram, so I restricted myself to posting the circle that was die cut from the… Continue reading Birthday: Butterflies and flowers

Birthday: Monstrous party

Another catch-up post; this card was originally made on March 21st, although the monsters were coloured at the start of February during the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. When I picked out the monsters stamp to colour, I knew that it would end up on a  birthday card for my younger nephew. Designing cards for adult… Continue reading Birthday: Monstrous party

Mothering Sunday: Bouquet and birds

Another catch-up post; this card was originally made on February 27th. This card was for my mum. For her, it always has to be "Mothering Sunday" rather than "Mother's Day" — something which made finding store-bought cards increasingly tricky. Rather less traditionally, there also have to be some cute critters on there. How: I love… Continue reading Mothering Sunday: Bouquet and birds

Mother’s Day: Doodle blooms

This card was created on February 26th; ready for the time of year when the floral stamp sets come into their own… Mother’s Day. I made this one for my other half's mum. Inspired by: This card by Sharon Hayes on Instagram. How: Stamping, heat embossing, Distress ink blending and fussy cutting. All far easier… Continue reading Mother’s Day: Doodle blooms
