Time To Party with Bloobel Stamps

Hello! Today I'm joining Bloobel Digi Stamps and I've created a card using one of their new release digi stamps called Party Toot.

Saving My 60th Wedding Anniversary Hard Work

Well, putting it mildly, I completely messed up the inside of the card while writing on it. ARGH! You may have actually heard me swearing, from wherever you are on the planet! My pet parrot … Continue reading Saving My 60th Wedding Anniversary Hard Work

Navy, Pink and White + Make Your Own Antistatic Bag

Hello! Who doesn't love ink blending when using distress inks? They mix beautifully, making new colours as they blend. I laid down Picked Raspberry, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire distress inks onto two pieces of cardstock, using a mini blending tool. One piece of card was already cut to fit the centre of the 5"×7" card front. Inking the … Continue reading Navy, Pink and White + Make Your Own Antistatic Bag
