Flower Meadow


Hello, how are you? Thank you for stopping by xx Today I can share my card, which was in last months Craft Stamper. The new edition is out this month with lots of wonderful articles in!



A meadow full of wildflowers is one of my most favourite sights to behold! I created the background for my 7in/7.78cm square  blank  card by using Aquamarkers. I scribbled them onto a splodge mat, following with a spritz of water.I laid the front of the card  into the colours, and lifted it up to reveal the pattern. If I wasn’t  happy with the result, I would have let it dry and repeated. 

I used the ink pad to stamp out my chosen stamps, which I watercolured before fussy cutting. I shuffled  them around my card without adhering, until I was happy with the result. I could then see where the most suitable place would be to stamp the sentiment.

I used foam pads to adhere the girl and flowers to the background. I created the meadow grass by cutting a piece of card 7in/17.78 cm x 2in/5.08cm and then cutting a fringe along the length. To give the grass a more realistic look I snipped diagonally into the grass blades, and curled some of them a little. I adhered it to the bottom of the card, and placed another flower in between the grass blades.



I was surprised and delighted a few days ago to discover  that a card I made for a family friends 91st birthday had won a prize in Papercraft Inspirations! I am happy to say she loved her card, and I will send her the page from the magazine, she will be thrilled!

Thank you so much for visiting, take care xx

Guest Designer Craft Stamper spring Flowers


Today I was fortunate to be a guest designer at Craft Stamper Magazine. Thank you so much.

I created this spring meadow of flowers for their Spring Flowers theme. I stamped the grasses first, then stamped and water coloured the flowers before cutting them out. I curled up some of the petals to give them more of a realistic look. Then I attached them with a 3D pad.

Thank you for visiting today.

Dreams published in Craft Stamper

Now that May's Craft Stamper has been published, I can post this card. I love this Dreams stamp by Inkylicious. I started by making a background on the gelli plate, by using a brayer to add some inks. I dipped the broken edge of some polystyrene into some ink and stamped it around the edges. (you often get polystyrene in packaging so I always save mine !) Using the polystyrene gives a random dotted effect.

I chose a Kraft card blank, and gently twisted some raffia before placing it down the left side of the card.

There are lots of lovely projects to read in Mays Craft Stamper plus a free blossom stamp!

I was so thrilled to be published in Craft Stamper again, thank you.
