Love you sew much bunny

The obvious thing would have been to make a Valentine card with this bunny and its big heart, but it didn't really feel like the sort of image I'd use for a card for my other half (see this year's Deadpool Valentine). So I decided to leave it without a sentiment because my card stash… Continue reading Love you sew much bunny

Hello: Polaroid mermaid

I swear that next month, whatever image Gerda gives us for the progressive challenge, I am just going to colour it and put it on a card base1. That was, more or less, my intention this month, but then I saw all the creative things that people were doing with this scene and I wanted… Continue reading Hello: Polaroid mermaid

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.

Or that fussy cutting several individual carrots might also be more, well…… Continue reading Easter: Bunny with carrot

Easter: Jump rope bunny

I have thought of so many different designs for this month’s challenge image in the last three weeks, but I wasn’t really happy with any of them. Then I finally came up with one that I actually liked enough to make. How: I started by printing out the bunny on Copic-friendly Neenah solar white card,… Continue reading Easter: Jump rope bunny

Thinking of you: Kitten

What: January’s instalment of Gerda Steiner’s progressive challenge gave us this cute little kitten with a big heart. How: The card base was created by using Inka Gold through a stencil. I love the variety of textures this gives — high shine where the stencil is firm enough to be swiped over and more gritty… Continue reading Thinking of you: Kitten
