Card for Baby Sophie

This is a card for my neighbour's newborn baby girl. I've used patterned papers from Kaisercraft to stamp and diecut the elements for the card. The alphabets were stacked with 3 layers of cardstock and the flowers and leaves were stamped and then diecut. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have not seen Sophie yet, hope to meet her soon! Hope everyone is well!

85th Birthday card for my Mum

During these unusual times, it’s so hard to celebrate special events. Months ago my sister and I chatted about how we were going to celebrate Mum’s special day. My project at work was supposed to Go-Live on the same weekend! Well guess what? My project was delayed by 3 months and we couldn’t celebrate my Mum’s birthday properly. We did however, made the day special for her by getting take-away Dim Sum for her, followed by a visit to her backyard, singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to her. Once we can go out to restaurants again, we will go out for a big family dinner!
This card is an extra large A5 card with a bit of masking and distress oxide inks. Thanks for dropping by!

Masculine card

Just sharing a quick card today using Kaisercraft paper and Mama Elephant stamps. I’ve been making so many floral cards lately and get stumped when I have to make a masculine card! I decided to use my collection of Kaisecraft patterned paper. I haven’t used these cute pandas from Mama Elephant for a quite a while now, just perfect for a masculine card! Hope everyone is safe and well!

Flower Power


I'm back with another card using the colours of the Altenew April Inspiration Challenge, using a technique that was demonstrated by Lydia Evans from Lydia's Crafty Corner last year. I just love these diecuts and have used them in various ways ever since I got them. The  background was created with distress inks to match the colours from the challenge. This was overlaid with a panel with the flowers cut out as windows. Thank you for dropping by! Hope everyone is staying safe!

Altenew April Inspiration Challenge


I have a birthday card to share using the colours from this month's Altenew Inspiration challenge. I did some water colour backgrounds with distress and oxide inks. I then die cut flowers from the background and leaves from vellum. After adhering the patterned paper and flowers, I used the Altenew white spray to add some splatter before adding the sentiment strip, leaves and sequins to finish the card. Hope everyone is sage! Thanks for dropping by!
