Turquoise Daisies


I seem to go through phases and turquoise seems to be my current trend and my go to colour when in doubt.

For this card, I used a lovely Daisy card from Hobby Art.

I stamped in black ink onto a background I had created using watercolour paint in greens and blues.


I coloured the daisies in white so that they would stand out from the background.

A lovely co-ordinated paperstock makes the perfect background.


I cut some various Sizzix die cut flowers in shades of turquoise and a white flourish to finish the card.


I hope you like it.



A Daisy Field in Turquoise


I have a card today which uses one of my favourite Daisy stamps from the wonderful Hobby Art.

I started by stamping in each of the corners. I masked the original images and stamped either side to fill the corner. I coloured using watercolour pencils which give a really subtle effect.


To complete the card, I added some co-ordinated layers of cardstock – one plain and one a colourful dotty pattern.

Finally, I added some embellishments picking out the turquoise colouring from the daisies – some daisies and corners.


I hope you like it.



Spring “Crazy Paved” Twinchies


I have some twinchies to share today after having a ‘desperate’ need to do something creative.

I used a technique which I haven’t for some time which I like to think I made up and named ‘Crazy Paved Stamping’.  I do not know of a proper technique but please let me know if you have seen something similar.


For my technique I used a lovely Hobby Art stamp of a daffodil, which I am particularly fond of.

I stamped the image onto 3 different colours of card and coloured the images using my trusty pencils.  I then cut the images up completely randomly and pieced back together again forming a crazy paved pattern. I do a similar technique where I piece the odd pieces back to form the original image for a different look.  Please visit this post for more ideas http://wp.me/p385yc-aO.


I then added a little punched butterfly. I added glitter to 2 of them.

I hope you like them.



Saved the Best ‘til Last


Today I would love to share the card I made for my Mum & Dad; my Mum being a huge penguin fan, so it has to be something with a penguin on.  This card I made using a very lovely stamp from Hobby Art.


I hope you like it.

This is my last post now until after Christmas, so may I wish everyone an absolutely wonderful Christmas.  Enjoy everyone!


My 1st Twinchie


I am back today to share my new addiction….Twinchies

I do not make New Years resolutions but when I discovered this “world of minatures” I was intrigued and wanted to join in.

I naturally fill whatever space there is open to me, whether it be a card or scrapbook page or doodle.  If I start with a large piece of paper I will almost always fill it.  So thinking it would be a great challenge to restrict size I started on my journey of Twinchies.

Here is one effort using a lovely stamp from Hobby Art.



I am addicted.  I cannot help myself.  The worst thing is I am even less likely to throw any trimmings away because I automatically think, “I can get a Twinchie out of that…”

I would love to hear if anyone else if a Twinchie addict.
