Mermaids beside the sea!

Hi everyone, are you relaxing this weekend? I am! 

Feeling the heat and vibrancy of summer today and made this card for the Delicious Doodles July Challenge – Beside the Sea.

I have used Steampunk Mermaid. This is the Stamp from Lost Coast Designs.

I have coloured her with alcohol pens and added some sparkle with sparkle pens and sticklers. The papers are from First Edition Storytellers collection.

Distress Oxide and Rubber stamping!

Hi, today I am sharing this one layer card. I made it, using the gorgeous Distress Oxide inks from Tim Hiltz Ranger, range.


I used two very vibrant colours, Wilted Violet and Broken China. I cut a piece of black cardstock to the size needed.

Firstly I stamped my flower with white ink used some embossing powder and heated with a heat tool.

I added randomly to the card each of the Distress Oxide Colours I had chosen, directly from the pads. I then rubbed with some sponge to blend the colours slightly. I spritzed with water.

I then stamped my sentiment using the white ink again.


I coloured the flower with Sparkle pens and edged the black card stock with a sparkle pen. I put the black card onto a white card blank.

For the Ladies

Hello, I am sharing a card I made today using the very lovely HunkyDory at home  USB stick.


I printed a sheet from the “For the Ladies” toppers collection. I selected two of the premium card blanks and printed off those too. I backed onto a pink mirricard. I made a card blank and used foam pads to create layers.


Finally I fussy cut the butterflies from the topper sheet to create a layered look. I also used Perfect Pearls on the topper.

Julie Loves USB – Pop Up card

Make your own card base using design papers from Craftwork Cards “Julie Loves”USB!


I love crafting with USB sticks. You can use your card stock in so many ways. I have used Craftwork Cards exclusive  “Julie Loves” USB stick to create this pop up box!


Simply print one of the Backing papers from the ditsy, dotty and Daisy collection and one of the hearts backgrounds onto each side of your card stock.

Find a template online for measurements of a pop up card.

I wanted to create a floral look to this card so I printed flowers from the “Julie Loves” USB


I wanted some to match the pop up card. This was done by printing onto the design paper a blank flower template.


I think that a similar card could be created with any of the USB sticks. Have fun creating your own card bases using the wonderful papers!

Digital Faux Parchment Whitework

Good Morning, it is a bank holiday here in the U.K. 

I decided to use the bonus papers on the Hunkydory Home USB – Key 1 to create a faux parchment whitework effect.

I printed onto vellum one of the beautiful bonus papers from the Hunkydory Home USB – Key 1.


On the back of the vellum I used an embossing tool to created a faux parchment whitework effect. By placing the vellum on an embossing mat. I used two different sizes of embossing tool to create definition and texture. 


Using glue in the areas where you whiteworked adhere the vellum to some satin card that matches your colourway. I then added a gold mirri card base. The sentiment is from the bonus section of the USB too.

See you soon,
