Washi tape

I love washi tapes, who doesn't? They're an easy way to decorate a card and they're really useful to keep a die in place on your paper while cutting it. My daughter uses it to decorate her phone charger to differentiate it from ours and decorate her school folders...and everything else! Washi tapes always make me … Continue reading Washi tape

Stencil cards

I bought tons of beautiful stencils at a craft fair in Munich and was looking forward to using them...as stencils, because I actually use them more to dry emboss! I also love the text cause its so true. Being loved and supported gives you the courage to try new things, fail and try again! I … Continue reading Stencil cards

Colour pop!

I'm getting addicted to these card challenges because they challenge me to explore themes I never would have thought of doing on my own! Heres one that just pops with colour! I first added Memory Box's Summer border at the bottom before using the Bokeh technique again to do this card. I started with sponging the … Continue reading Colour pop!

I made this card to reflect the sun trying to shine through the grey days we've been having!

My first one is a subtle polka dot background cut with Sizixx's scallop circle from Easter paper bought … Continue reading Polka dots

The first card was for Match the Sketch and this is also my first challenge for a German team of bloggers/designers, one … Continue reading Challenged

Dry Emboss with stencil

Spring is finally here and the flowers are starting to bloom! I have this lovely view in front of our living room window and it and Van Gogh's "Almond Blossom" series of paintings inspired me to make a cherry blossom card. As I am new to card making I learnt so much from others, mainly … Continue reading Dry Emboss with stencil

Bokeh technique

  This is my husband's favourite card! I sponged the background first using a mixture of Versafine’s Spanish moss, vintage sepia and deep lagoon. I used Stampin up’s Pacific point for the sky and then I used a technique called Bokeh to add the circles using a TCW stencil from The Crafters Workshop. I learnt it … Continue reading Bokeh technique

Pink delight!

I'm not a girly girl but I do love pink! I made a few for my nephew's school fund raising event in Singapore. I went crazy with my first stampin up "What I love" stamp set which I got for free when I ordered over 60€ of Stampin up products! I entered this card in … Continue reading Pink delight!

Easter cards

I started making Easter cards for a fund raising event in Singapore for my nephew's school. I am not a very religious person on a daily basis but I must say that God must have totally led and inspired me for the following cards because i did not start out making a religious card but … Continue reading Easter cards
