Plant a Garden


I wanted to play along at Time Out where the current challenge is a word inspiration using the fabulous quote:

It seemed like the ideal opportunity to use our Plant a Garden stamp set which I have neglected recently (a bit like our actual garden!).  As we have 20% off all stamps this weekend when you use the code STAMP20 it is a great time to get this set or any of our stamps (including those that we only released 2 weeks ago)....

Here is my card:

I stamped and masked some of the elements from the stamp set and watercoloured them.  Having cut them out with a circle die I attached them to a card panel on which I have used our new Cobblestone stencil.

I shall also link up at Happy Little Stampers Watercolour challenge (without the optional twist).

Here are the products that I used to make this card:


I hope you have a healthy and happy Easter,

Easter Stamp Sale!!


I hope that you have a restful and healthy easter weekend seems to have crept up on me amidst all of the other events taking place in the world.  However, now that we are here, I wanted to celebrate with an easter weekend sale.  There is 20% off all of the stamps in store when you use the code STAMP20 at checkout before midnight on Monday, 13 April.  This applies to all of our stamps including the recent release and the sets featured on our Hochanda show last weekend :)

Here is a card that I have made with our Butterfly Wishes set.  I watercoloured it with Zig Watercolour markers and attached it to a card panel which has our new Butterfly Background stencil heat embossed on it.  We are donating £2 to the Alzheimers Society for each Butterfly Background sold during April.

I shall link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where we have a spring moodboard to inspire us and at Inkspirational where spring is also the theme.

Here are the products that I have used on this card:

Finally, I can't go without announcing the winner of our latest stamp release....apologies for the delay!  The winner is Denise Bryant.  Congratulations, Denise :)  I shall get in touch to arrange to get your prize to you!

Thank you for stopping by,

AAA Birthday Challenge


Well, April is here already and despite the strange times that we are in, one thing is for sure.....we still need birthday cards :)  The them at AAA Birthday this month is Dots and/or Stripes:

I decided to go for quite a stylised look.....

I simply inked Chipped Sapphire through a circle aperture and then used copper embossing paste through our Stacked Lines stencil.  The sentiment is from our new Happy Words stamp set.  Super simple but quite a clean graphic look x

Here are the products that I have used today:


I hope that you are able to play along with us this month!

Thanks for stopping by,

AAA Cards


I hope that you are staying safe and staying creative during these strange times....I am just popping in with a quick card that I have made for the current challenge at AAA Cards where the theme is made in minutes with an optional twist of stencil.  I am delighted to be the sponsor for this challenge which is one of my favourites in blogland :)

Here is the card that I have made to play along using our Sunray stencil and stamps from our Serenity set:

It really was made in minutes with the sunray being inked along the bottom edge and then stamped over.  Hopefully it is a calming and hopeful image.

I am also excited to say that I will be bringing the products that I have used on this card to Hochanda on Saturday for my first ever show!  Keep everything crossed for me :)


In the meantime, though, do take time to play along at AAA Cards.  You have until 11 April to take part.

Thanks for stopping by,
