Butterfly Heaven


I just love butterflies and here are a few…

six cards

I loved making these cards

blue butterfly

and each one is made in exactly the same way


I just used a different colour combination


I didn’t put a sentiment on these cards, as there was a personal message inside each one.

However, this also means your card is ready for any occasion that may arise.

Wishing You Well


This Get Well card was made from using multiple stamp sets…

get well soon tree

 I cut three strips of card and placed them together. Using versamark I stamped the leaf and splodges from French foliage stamp set.

In early espresso I stamped the tree and sentiment from the hopeful thoughts stamp set.

The foliage in the bottom lefthand corner was created using the tallest tree, stamped on its side, from the lovely as a tree stamp set.

The birds in the top righthand corner are from the up up and away stamp set.

I softened the edges using soft suede ink and sponge daubers.

Here’s what I used:

Stamps: French foliage, lovely as a tree, hopeful thoughts, & up up and away 

Card/Paper: soft suede, so saffron, certainly celery & baja breeze 

Ink: early espresso, soft suede & versamark

A Reason to Smile … through difficult times


I just wanted to share this beautiful card I received recently ….

I have lost 2 very special people in my life in the last few weeks, my sweet Aunty May and my lovely Nan. It’s very comforting to know people truly care and I was touched by the card I received.

Thank you Gill, your card is beautiful.

Simply Soft Trio


I love the Simply Soft stamp set, it can be used for so many occasions …

All the cards were made with 5” x 2.5” whisper white card. I stamped the three different flowers in early espresso and completed them using the colour combinations shown below.

The end panels measure 1.5″ and the centre panel measures 2”

Leave a slight space between each panel before adhering using dimensionals.
