Fresh Card

Hello Everyone! Sorry for the absence, life's been a bit hectic! Unfortunately, no-one left a comment to my last post, so there was no blog candy winner. But I have a new card for you today. This card was designed by Marelle Taylor (she truly is a genius), it uses the new stamp set Fresh Cuts. I really enjoy the sponge dauber technique, it allows for such elegance with such ease!

Jungle Baby

I made this card for a friend's Jungle Baby Shower on the weekend. I used the Bundle of Joy stamp set, which is retired unfortunately. But I did something a bit tricky with the sentiment, can you guess how I did it? Here's a close up. (Sorry it's a bit blurry.)

You've got until Monday 22nd of June to work it out and post a comment and then I'll randomly chose one correct response for some blog candy! Good luck!

Arty Gifts

Can you believe it's half way through June already! Where does the time go!?

A couple of my daughter's friends were baptised last month and these are the gifts I made for them. I thought it would be nice to have a keepsake and so the idea for these was born. I hope they like them!

I stamped the letters from the Jumbo Outline Alphabet straight onto designer series paper and then cut them out. I printed the bible verses onto Whisper White cardstock and popped up with dimensionals. I added ribbon and coloured cardstock to match the papers and then bought frames (and the lovely man at the shop put them in for me).
