Lego men

My nephew is turning 10 years old at the beginning of May and is very into his lego. I wanted to send him a lego inspired card, so this one is on it’s way to Canada 🇨🇦.

Alongside the lego men image I stamped the happy birthday greeting. I then inked the base card and the edges on the image topper. The inks were from the Tim Holtz distress inks collection. I chose to stamp around the base card to edge it with the triangular border stamp you can see. I added some personalisation by cutting out the name and age for my nephew and sticking these onto the card.

I’m entering this into the Stick It Down Card Sketch challenge for April.


Best Auntie @ 70

My aunt was visiting the U.K. for her 70th birthday and I’d been making up these flowers from a crafty day with friends. My aunt isn’t a fussy or pink girly girl so I went with blue tones. She’s always there when I need to reach out so i wanted to let her know she’s a good aunt on her special birthday.

I love the script on the phrase which I cut out with my scan n cut machine, and to add to this I cut out some numbers in a script font too. I found some coordinating paper which wasn’t overpowering and too girly, created a deeper colour mat and added a free hand drawn line border. Not every card is about colouring in and digital images, but they can sometimes simply be about paper.

I hope you enjoyed the card.
