Birthday card for Mum


Following me previous posts, birthday season has to include Mum and I always try to make this card super special.

This is what I did…

Mum loves cross-stitch and often makes me cards using cross-stitch. It’s actually where my crafting started when I was a little girl, but I don’t find the time to do it as often as I used to. So I thought it would be perfect for Mum to take some extra time with this one.

The cross stitch was a free kit on a magazine which I bought probably a year ago, and thought this design would be perfect.

Once I had completed the cross-stitch I decided not to mount it as the kit suggested but to add some paper flowers.

I watercoloured some white card…

I then used a flower die to cut some flowers…

I used the matching stamps to add some detail…

I then shaped each flower and layered up.

I cut some hexagon dies to use as a base for the cross stitch and added the flowers…

She liked it.

Thanks for visiting.


Pink and Blue Floral


I have a quick card to share today built around a simple floral stamp.


I stamped my image and trimmed to a neat square.  I coloured using alcohol ink pens and watercolour paint.


I cut a selection of Spellbinder flower dies and arranged around my stamped image, with some added jewels.


Together with the additional co-ordinating card layers, I added a contrasting blue border cut down from a larger die to create a frame.

I hope you like it.
